Floral thank you …

Hello Reader;

Today i am sharing with you a card made with one of Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration items, that were on offer this year.  I really liked this set its one where you can build dimension with different shading by using the three different stamps for the flower head.  I like to have a lot of thank you cards handy for when i need them. This one was so quick to replicate quickly.

Floral Happy Days…{Part two}

2016-03-31 20.23.11

Hello Reader,

The layout i am sharing with you today is the matching layout for the one i shared previously.  It was made using my Like For Ever monthly kit, this months kit focused on My Minds Eye on trend 2 range.  This is the first time i have used typing printed from the computer, to do my journaling.  I really liked the clean effect it gave, and although it wont replace handwriting on my layouts for me but i will probably use it more for project life style layouts.

Hello Reader;

The layout i am sharing with you today was made using my Like For Ever monthly kit, this months kit focused on My Minds Eye on trend 2 range. I loved this kit – although there seemed to be a lot of flamingos?!? Flamingos seem to be the in thing at the moment; in the shops as well as in craft lines… can’t say that they do much for me! lol I used a large gold floral rub on on this page, its been a long time since i have used rub ons.  These ones went on really well and easily, so i will be looking out for more when i next buy supplies.  There was also these lovely acrylic shapes in the kit, for this layout i chose the one that matched the rub on and the flowers on the foil papers.

Hello Reader;

This layout was made using my Like Forever Kit from March, this kit focused on supplies from an Australian company called Coco Daisy – lovely papers and embellishments.  This layout was inspired by a sketch from a challenge from the LFE subscriber facebook group.  All i added to the kit from my stash was the white base and twine, the wooden stick girls and a few sequins and gems.

Yellow Blooms…

Hello Reader;

The card i am sharing with you today takes a little bit of time but i think its worth it 🙂 I started by layering up the background stamp elements in a collage-style.  Then i stamped the flower image twice on another piece of card and i water coloured it with my inkpads.  I then fussy cut it twice and layered up the images in a decoupage way picking out the main stem of the flower. I then added the greeting and matted and layered the panel on to the card base

Hello Reader,

Today’s layout is one of my most favourite that i have made lately, i was really pleased with it when i finished it.  ‘’The papers are by Gossamer Blue, and came in a grab bag from Hey Little Magpie – again i ended up using the grab bag papers before my chosen papers! lol This layout was made from two sheets of paper, i added doilies and buttons from Stampin’ Up! The wooden figures are Freckled  Fawn and the stickers are from my stash.  I also did some pricking and i stitched a little with a hemp-type twine.

Hello Reader,

The layout that i am sharing with you today was inspired by a card sketch that i saw on pinterest.  Lots of banners and circles layered up then i added in a photo mount adhered with washi tape and finished off with some enamel dots and rhinestones.  All supplies are from Stampin’ Up!
