Hello and welcome! Today I’m sharing a couple of cards I made for this week’s Coffee & Cards live. This weekend we took Alfie – that’s our dog for a stroll up to the woods where the bluebells are in full bloom. It’s a stunning sight to see. I also picked up a bird nesting box from the National Trust shop there too. The perfect inspiration to pull out the Garden Birdhouses stamp set.

The Garden Birdhouses stamp set is not a new one, but I was delighted to see that it’s carried over into the new Annual Catalogue. I have teamed it up for this birthday card with something that is brand new though! The Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I love this!! It gives such a lovely impression. Something else that is brand new – is the Starry Sky card and ink pad. One of our gorgeous new 2022 In Colours.
Who knew that Starry Sky and Pool Party would go together so beautifully! The same colour scheme for both cards, the same “layout” but two different looks. This Designer Series Paper is called Sun Prints and is part of the new Sun Prints Suite. It’s gorgeous. I also like the range of sentiments in the Garden Birdhouses stamp set. So useful for lots of different cards. You can of course also use any sentiment you already have too.
It’s such a great stamp set and has a fabulous price point too! I hope I may have inspired you! Do let me know in the comments.
