Beautiful Bouquet

By | 12/07/2018

This is a stamp and die set that I have previously over looked and I’m not sure why.  It is lovely.  Pretty images, matching/co-ordinating dies and lovely sentiments for many occasions. Taking inspiration from Marelle Taylor, I created this lovely bouquet using the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and the Bouquet Bunch framelets. The flowers were… Read More »

Serene Garden

Initially when I saw this stamp set and co-ordinating dies I was concerned that there wasn’t scope for versatility.  Oh how wrong I was.  I have made several cards with it and have discovered many more ideas from lots of other demonstrators. This particular project was inspired by a card made by Laura Allen.  I… Read More »

I was asked to send a card, on behalf of my band, to a member who had been involved in a car crash.  Fortunately, she is OK but not so much the car.  What sort of card do you send?  I wasn’t sure but I hope what I came up with is OK.  I worked… Read More »

If you would like to purchase this stamp… Read More »

Painted with Love

By | 14/04/2018

Do you know, that when I first saw the “Painted with Love” DSP, it didn’t appeal to me at all.  First off, I don’t do gold.  I tend to prefer silver/white gold instead.  All of my jewellery is silver coloured.  And then the main colours are rather bright pinks….. I don’t usually do that either. … Read More »

Flying Home Again

By | 10/04/2018

This morning I was going through my stamp sets and came across “Flying Home” and realised that I hadn’t used it for a while.  It’s a sweet stamp set with some very pretty images just right for colouring with Stampin’ Blends.  So taking inspiration from the lovely Constanze Wirtz.  Isn’t it just the sweetest image?… Read More »
