Today’s card is focused on the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set.  Hmmm, this week is turning out to be focussed on using our beautiful and fun Sale-A-Bration stamp sets!  Well, why not!

I love the stand-out red for this card!  I stamped that flower image twice.  Once for the background of flowers and the second time so I could cut out the popped up flowers to add a little depth.  I’m actually playing along with The Paper Players colour challenge.

The dilemma for me was how to add the Crumb Cake(kraft) but my ribbon collection came through!  I added a short length of our 3/8″ Classic Weave in Crumb Cake and topped it with those pretty red enamel shapes.  Challenge completed!

As usual, here’s the list of everything I used for this card.

Have a fabulous day and don’t forget to add a little stamping to it!


Every so often one needs to send a sympathy card so I created this one to have ready.

I haven’t used the beautiful Rose Wonder stamp set and matching  Rose Garden Thinlits so the layout that Freshly Made Sketches posted made the selection easy!

I chose this colour scheme from the Colour Inspiration Challenge and that is why we have Dapper Denim, Sahara Sand, Basic Gray(greeting and label) and, of course, Whisper White.

If you look very closely, you will see that I used the Woodland Embossing Folder to give a little texture to that leaf spray just above the rose.

TECHNIQUE TIP:  How did I get the pieces of the rose to stay together?  Well, I first cut out a small circle and then after the rose had been cut out, and carefully holding the rose cut-out, glued it to the back of the flower.  That way it all stayed together to look like one piece.  Then, it was easy to cut the frame and glue it to the rose as an outline.  Make sure to use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen(138309) to attach the frame,

Have an awesome Monday and Happy Stamping!


Hello and I’m playing with the Climbing Orchid Bundle – again!  This time by creating these lovely vellum orchids.

Working with vellum makes for a lovely twist, especially when using the Berry Burst ink!  The first thing to do is to stamp the branches onto the whisper white background and then run it through the Big Shot so you can add the Garden Trellis.  I did a little trick by adding the branch onto the greeting piece so it would lie nicely at the top.  TIP:  Just stamp the greeting first and then lay the piece over top of the already stamped branch to get an eyeball of where it should be over top of the greeting.

Here is the list of products used for this card.

Happy Stamping!


Good day to you.  I decided to give the Bokeh technique a try for today’s card.

Blended Bloom Bokeh -

It’s a fun technique and I used just one colour for it in order to showcase the retiring Blended Bloom stamp.  The idea behind Bokeh is to blend colours together using an aqua painter and then smoothing it all out by blending with Whisper White craft ink.  Then I added that lovely greeting from the Rose Wonder stamp set.

I needed a good sketch to finish it all off so used the Mojo Monday sketch as well.

Happy Stamping!


I’ve been checking all my Sale-A-Bration stamp sets and decided to go pedalling with the Pedal Pusher stamp set for today.

I'll pedal for you -

Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end very soon so I also needed to use the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper too.  I think it goes perfectly with that lovely bicycle AND, it also encouraged me to use some of the soon to retire 2014-2016 In Colors!

I love the simplicity of this card with it’s pop of colourful flowers!
