Floral Friday: Glimmer Flower Thank You Cards

One of the most popular freebiesfrom this years Sale-A-Bration has been the glimmer paper pack. This pack includes 12 sheets of glimmer paper in three gorgeous shades of Sweet Sugarplum, Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron. This stuff is just stunning and a little bit really makes your card “pop”.

The photo really doesn’t do these cards justice as that little bit of glimmer just makes these cards that little bit more special. I used the wave die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits as a trellis base for my little flowers.

The little flowers were created from the Botanical Builder Framelits in Whisper White and the lovely glimmer paper.

The cards were finished with a little greeting from the One Big Meaning stamp set.

Which is your favourite colour ? I think mine is the Mint Macaron version, I know I’m going to really miss this colour when it leaves us at the end of May. If you love this colour or any of the 2015 – 2017 In-Colours then now is the time to stock up as these products will be leaving in just over two months and nearly always sell out fast.

Floral Friday: Sealed With Love Friendship Cards

Initially when I planned this focus week I wasn’t going to write my Floral Friday post as I wasn’t sure if it would work, but surprisingly these floral themed cards were just screaming at me to be made. Which I guess shows just how versatile Stampin’ Up! stamp sets really can be. Continue reading “Floral Friday: Sealed With Love Friendship Cards”

Romantic Watercolour Card with Sealed With Love

I  wanted to create a softer looking card today so chose to work with the gorgeous watercolour pencils. I really love how this card turned out and think its my favourite project with this stamp set to date. Continue reading “Romantic Watercolour Card with Sealed With Love”

So Very Much meets…Sealed With Love

For today’s project I wanted to make some really quick cards that had nothing to do with the love theme but still used the Sealed With Love stamp set. I chose to use the paint stripe stamp to make a background. Continue reading “So Very Much meets…Sealed With Love”

Floral Friday – Insides the Lines- Thoughtful Poppy Card

Nordic Inspired Stitched With Cheer Card

I love the way the “Nordic” theme creeps into clothes and home décor at Christmas and the Stitched With Cheer set is perfect for creating your own Nordic inspired cards and crafts for Christmas. This card features a simple colour scheme of Cherry Cobbler and Crumb which I just love.

My Christmas tree line didn’t go quite to plan so I added the greetings panel to cover up a splodge, oops! I think its turned out okay though and can’t wait to pull this one out to play  again soon…hopefully before it sells out.

Here is a close-up of the greetings panel. I  love adding the little pearls to cards as a finishing accent. The cherry cobbler layer of the banner was just a die-cut which I cut in half to lengthen the banner  and also to make the greeting stand out more against the background.

Modern Snowflake Cards

I love snowflake images of any kind and have really enjoyed playing with the Flurry of Wishes stamp set to create some cards which have a more modern feel about them.

For these cards I chose two colours schemes, the first Island Indigo and Pool Party which I think is my favourite blue combination. The second I went for a more girly feel with Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry.

I finished each card off with some of the gorgeous Fancy Frost sequins which have the most delicious shine…I wish I had packets and packets of them to sprinkle over my table at Christmas.

I love them both and can’t decide which is my favourite, which is yours?
