Can you smell the roses?

Well, not really, it’s too early for roses to be blooming but I’ve made some pretty ones today!!

As you may have noticed, I like using the new Blendabilities. Okay, so I LOVE using the new blendabilities!!! I got the rest of the colours when they became available (cos I NEED them all, you know!!) and I wanted to have a play with them.

My card today is loosely based on this one by Artistic Design by Rachel, which I found on Pinterest. I liked the way she had coloured the rose by not colouring right to the edge.

As I wanted to try a few colours, I made a set of cards using the Sweetbriar Rose stamp. Isn’t it pretty?

Here is the Melon Mambo blendies. It’s a very bright pink.

Next is Pumpkin Pie.

Then we have Night of Navy.

And last but not least, Rich Razzleberry.

I’m really happy with how these turned out. I don’t consider myself to be very arty, so I love how these pens make it look like I am!!

And I’ll just pause to say that I love the new Venetian Crochet Trim!! Is it pretty or what!!

Please let me know what you think!!!

30 April 2014 – It’s my thing!!

I love making cards which have a bit of a twist. I especially love a good easel card!! I love the “wow” factor when you show someone and they realise that it’s not just a flat card but something a bit unusual.

At stamp club this month, I wanted to showcase one of the new stamp sets in the Occasional Catalogue, So Very Grateful. I think this is such a cute set and I love being able to colour the flowers.

I found a cute card on Pinterest, by Julie Davison and she has a great video on how to make this card. Check it out here.

I really like the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. I think these are a great option for card making.

So here is my card.

I also did a second one using a different DSP.
