Rose Wonder Stamp set

This card started out with the intention of using hearts for a Valentines card but the Rose Garden thinlit was irresistible. The huge rose stamp from the Rose Wonder set was stamped on with Versamark on the Real Red cardstock as an interesting background.

You've Got This and dotted Lace Trim

Lovely new flower stamp, embossed with clear embossing powder and then water coloured to make it pop. The new In color Stampin' Write Markers together with an aqua pen work wonders. Also I experimented with the new dotted lace trim gathering some, cutting down other pieces of trim.

Wondrous Wreath

Along with the matching framelits, I have used this stamp set so many times and always love the result. I've used Real Red cardstock and ink as well as Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz ink. The Joy is cut using the Framelits set, wonderful Wreath, and Champagne glimmer Paper. It's Stampjn' Up! © the Wondrous Wreath stamp set.

This card was part of a set created using the images from the Traveller stamp set. The World Map is a digital image adjusted in MDS and printed so as to create a landscape card. 

Blended Bloom

No prizes for guessing which stamp sets and Designer Series Paper is on my desk .  The diagonal striped paper from Typeset series works effectively in small quantities to add interest.

Wisteria Wonder Blendabilities were used to colour the flower with Daffodil Delight Blendabilities for centre.

Blended Bloom and Blendabilities

These are some of the cards created in our first Blendabilities class. Using just the Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabanna Blendabilities sets. A Vintage button was coloured with the Bllendabilities to match the centre of the bloom.

Joyful Christmas one last time

I really enjoy using this stamp set - Joyful Christmas from last years Holiday catalogue but it's time for a new Holiday catalogue. So the Carryover items are only available until 27 August. Take a look on my website before it's too late.

I coloured the flower using the Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities. The Party Pennants Bigz L die is living in my Big Shot also, so useful.

Cancer Fundraiser creations

Here are the cards the ladies got to create on the night of the fundraiser. It was amazing how well everyone worked on their cards.  Thanks for the help along the way, sharing your knowledge to others who were creating for the very first time.  That's what it's all about!

Shop online by 16 May using the Hostess Code 67M2WJD4 at the Shopping Bag and you will also be contributing to the funds raised.

Flower Shop

Well it's been awhile since a post, mainly because my keyword won't talk to my computer nor my mouse, unsociable really!  The ladies at a recent fundraiser made this card.  The cards were all in blues, white and grey with a touch of pink being Blushing Bride.  Just had to add the bicycle to the finished card to give a vintage appear.  The night was a success for fundraising team and Cancer Council.  Thank you to Stampin' Up! for continuing to support such events.
