Sometimes, you just need a bit of inspiration and I love heading to Mojo Monday to check out their latest sketch.
I liked this week’s sketch, which you can see here or down below.
I thought I would ink up the new Groovy Love stamp set for this one. I also love using the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack to add a pattern to the background.
I just love how everything matches!!!
I hope you like it!!

I had to make a birthday card for a cute little friend who was turning one this past weekend. However, I had a crisis as I realised that I didn’t have any kiddy stamps since cleaning out my retired stamp sets. So after having a look at Splitcoast Stampers, I found this cute card by Linda Zoellmer.
It was pretty easy to make quickly, and you could certainly make it using a variety of colours different looks.
Happy Birthday, Miss Charlotte!!

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I have access to a demonstrator only forum which links all demos from around the world, Stampin Connection. It has a great gallery of images for inspiration. The first card that I am sharing today is by Melissa Stout, The Stamp Doc. Check out her website here for a video on how she made this cute card.
This card is using the Festival of Prints DSP from the new Seasonal Catalogue. This pack gives you 48 sheets of gorgeous papers that are 11.4 cm x 16.5 cm. I think this is the first time that I have used the pennant part of the Perfect Pennants die!!
