13 August 2013 – It’s my Favourite!!

I found this gorgeous card on Pinterest (where else!!) by Diana Gibbs here and fell in love!! My new favourite stamp set is Stippled Blossoms. I just love the look of 2 step stamping!!

We did this at Stamp Club in July and the girls loved it. Well, they didn’t quite love using the Stamp-a-ma-jig but they loved the look. I don’t think they really liked cutting out the flowers either but you can’t get such gorgeousness without a bit of hard work!! We used a few stamp sets but it was worth it.

I’d love to hear what you think. Please leave me a comment below.

Here’s a close up of the detail. We cut out three flowers and layered them to look like a large one.

I just realised that I managed a card which didn’t use the Big Shot!!! Doesn’t happen often!!

14 July 2013 – New loves!

This card features quite a number of my new favourites!!!

I was a little slow off the mark to embrace the paper doilies which were featured in the last seasonal catalogue. I liked them, I just kept forgetting to order them!! I finally got them and was so glad to see that they had carried over to the new catalogue.

I found this cute card on Pinterest by Becky Jensen, here.

I got to play with the new Simply Pressed Clay. It certainly doesn’t feel like clay! I made a batch of flowers one night watching the tv. So easy to do!! I just left them white as I wanted to try colouring them with markers. When colouring, make sure you touch them gently as they can mark easily.

One of the most exciting parts of this card is the washi tape!! So easy to use and it looks great. I love this stuff!!

I wanted to make a banner for the sentiment, so I trimmed the Thank you stamp in the Hello, Lovely set.

thanks doily
