Floral Friday – Blooms & Wishes

Blooms and Wishes is probably my most favourite stamp set from the current Annual catalogue, I just love the slightly water-coloured look it gives to the flowers, making for some beautiful cards. This card is my October customer thank you card, so if you shopped with me last month one of these will be in the post to you.

It was a very simple card to make just a couple of layers and some stamping but I think the end result is beautiful. I chose a colour scheme of Island Indigo, Mint Macaron and Pool Party and by stamping off some of these colours I ended up with a variety of shades on the card, which adds to the water-coloured effect.

The greetings panel matts were created from the Tags and Labels Framelits and I finished the card off with a little Mint Macaron Mini Striped Ribbon and a few pearls.

I really love this card and hope my customers do too. If you would like your own handmade card from me next month all you have to do is place an order with me this month, here is the link to my online shop.

Jolly “Hats” Card

Today’s card features the super cute Jolly Friends stamp set, but I have chosen to just use the hat stamps and the matching Jolly Hat Builder Punch. This was a quick card to make and would be easy to mass produce if you needed a lot of cards quickly. Continue reading “Jolly “Hats” Card”
