Floral Friday – Love and Affection

Today I am starting a new series called Floral Friday which will showcase all things floral in the catalogue as I love flower stamps and am eager to add all the new floral sets to my collection. This week I’m focusing on simple cards and the Love and Affection stamps set which is fast becoming one of my favourites. Here is a picture of all four cards I made together

loveandaffectionfridayfloral1As you can see I chose a colour scheme of Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo and Watermelon Wonder. I love how bright and summery these cards look. Here is a close up of each card individually

loveandaffectionfridayfloralcard3This was the first card I made using the new Layering Squares Framelits, which making a focal panel for the card was super simple. To embellish the card I just added sime of the Ruched Ribbon in Emerald Envy and the Watermelon Wonder Washi from the Affectionately Yours collection.

This time I went for an all-over stamped background and used the Decorative Label punch to add some pop to the sentiment. I think this was is actually my favourite of the four.

Again using the Laying Squares Framelits, just in a smaller size and finally

loveandaffectionfridayfloralcard1I’m not 100% on this one, originally this was going to be like the design above but it didn’t fit on the card. I’d stamped the flowers to overlap when all the squares were in a row but now I’ve moved them into a grid formation it doesn’t look as good.

As you can see this stamp set has  huge scope for super simple quick cards, next time I pull this set out I’m hoping to be a little more adventurous!

Happy Crafting,

Watercolour Wash with Irresistably Floral Designer Paper

One of the things I love about the new Irresistably Floral Designer Paper is that you can colour it to fit any project you wish. For today’s card I couldn’t decide which colour combination to use so I made two versions, a blue/green one and a pink/peach one.

Hello In-Colours 2016-2018

Firstly apologies for being missing for over a month, I think I under-estimated how busy I would be in May, we had birthday parties every weekend which left me with not much spare time and even less energy to create anything. So I’m very behind in working on my new catalogue goodies, most of which have sat in their box since the beginning of May.

The first finished cards I’ve made with my new products have been these little notecards featuring the new In-Colours, the new layering squares Framelits and the stamp set I was most drawn to when I first saw the catalogue, Blooms & Wishes.

incolourbloomandwishesnoetcardsEach card is 4″ square and is made using just one of the ink colours. I just love how I have been able to get three different shades of the same colour just by stamping off onto scrap paper once or twice before stamping onto my whisper white panel.

Which one is your favourite? Mine was the Dapper Denim version as you can see all the watercolour detail of the large flower really clearly.

Monday Mix-Up with It’s My Party Designer Series Paper

Today I’m going to start a series where I take a certain focus product and create two cards with different looks. I’m focusing this week on the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper as this is on the retiring list and I have a lot to use up. I also decided to have a play with my circle punches. Here’s the first card I came up with:
