Sometimes less is more don't you think! That's the way I would describe this card . I have used just a few stamps from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set and the Blossom Builder Punch. It is a three step stamp set allowing you to build up layers of colour on the images of the petals. Then they are simply punched out before gently curling with my fingers and adhering to the front of my card. I love this bright colour Pink. Its Melon Mambo and of course the cardstock is dyed to match it ... VIEW POST

Daisy Delight Card
I needed to make some Thank you cards so I thought I would have a play with the new Daisy products from Stampin up. The Designer Series Paper is so pretty. Full of beautiful images and colours. I played with this paper for the first time properly today and I am in love with it. I can see it being used a lot in all sorts of projects. Its not flowery throughout. There are definitely a couple of designs that would be good for the chaps too. ( not that I think the flowers are just for ladies of ... VIEW POST
#Make Something That Means Something.
A card in the post or a hand written note is such a joy to receive don't you think?

This has inspired my project today. Its a pretty gift box to hold cards. Its an easy make, made using the envelope punch board. I made it to fit standard size cards and envelopes just ... VIEW POST

Easy to make note cards and gift box and a new favourite colour!
I couldn't resist making a little box of note cards with the new Eastern Palace range from Stampin Up. They are just 4 x 4 in size and the box is 4 1/2x 4 1/2 so that the notecards and envelopes fit nicely inside. The colours in the Designer Series Papers are lovely. New 2017 In Colours which are Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist put with Dapper Denim and Very Vanilla. For my first go I used the rich jewel tones. Its so easy to layer up the papers on the card base, with the die cuts and ... VIEW POST
