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.

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!

Balloons for you…

Hello Reader,

Quick card for you today, the patterned paper {DSP} is from Stampin’ Up! and i simply mounted it on a coordinating layer of cardstock stamped and punched the greeting and did the same.  Then mounted onto a simple white base – from Stampin’ Up they have their lovely smooth whisper white cardstock in a ‘thick’ version now which is great for making card bases – i then finished off with a rhinestone.

Hello Reader,

A very simple layout from me today, i simply cut the layers to the correct size and then layered them up. Added a bit of journaling and some die cut letters and i was done 🙂 I have made a conscious effort to make sure that i scrap some layouts about me, what i do and my favourite things so that the girls have these to look back on in years to come 🙂

Bicycle Letter set …

Hello Reader;

I have a few pen pals who i write to regularly, and i find it very hard to find nice writing paper that doesn’t cost a fortune so i decided to stamp my own.  I just used printer paper and stamped the bicycle image then coloured it with coloured pencils.  I repeated that on to a second sheet and then on to the envelope.  I think i will make some more in the future as it means if i write more than i have paper, i can just quickly stamp another sheet, and it can be any theme i feel like at the time.
