Blackberry Bliss Inspiring Iris

I’m loving all the floral stamps sets in the new catalogue and Inspiring Iris is one of my favourites. I love Irises but have sadly never managed to grow any in my garden..yet, so for the time being I can now happily create as many as I like.

For this card I went for a simple colour scheme of Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive, mostly so I could use some of the gorgeous Noble Peacock Speciality DSP which is covered in foil accents and its stunning.

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the three different sections of the Iris and although it’s not lined up perefectly (not sure if its meant too or not) I love it as it adds to that floaty floral feel. To finish the card I added some Blackberry Bliss twine from the Nature’s Twine pack and a little bow.

A gorgeous card for any occassion, I can see myself using this stamp set alot in the coming weeks.

Floral Friday: Tranquil Tulips Centre Step Card

For today’s card I decided to make a more complicated card than usual and try a Centre-Step card. I intend to do a full tutorial post on this soon but there are plenty of tutorials around Pinterest. Tranquil Tulips is one of the new hostess sets and I think it will be my favourite for this year as you all know I love my florals and Tulips are one of my favourite flowers. I wanted to make a bright and cheery card as the weather has been so miserable lately and all the rain we’ve had has given my flowers a bit of a battering. So I chose a colour scheme of Tempting Turquoise, Real Read and Lemon Lime Twist.

I think the water coloured effect of the Fresh Florals DSP compliments the Tranquil Tulip stamps perfectly.  I think my favourite part of this card is the greeting from Dragonfly Dreams its fits the bottom panel perfectly.

Holly Berry Background Card

The Holly Berry Happiness stamp set and Holly Berry Builder punch were two of the first items I purchased from the Autumn/Winter catalogue back in August when all us demonstrators could pre-order items and its a set which I have been unsure of. I love the idea of this set but I have struggled to make anything I like with it, until now. Continue reading “Holly Berry Background Card”
