It's Been a While

It's been a while since I have added anything to my blog. Have been a bit slack of late and then had trouble with the camera, it has gremlins and keeps turning itself off!! (How rude!!)
Anyway I have been having a play with the lovely Baroque Motifs set which I still have not acquired for myself yet but was lucky enough to borrow my lovely friend's set (waving at you Suzy).

The following cards were inspired by a project designed by Vanessa Webb, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, which had appeared in Australian Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft magazine. You can check out Vanessa's lovely blog here. Vanessa's cards actually had flowers cut in half and added to the right hand sides of the cards but I didn't have any so I modified mine a bit.

This first one uses Soft Sky teamed up with the DSP "Fall Flowers". I have stamped the image firstly with the Soft Sky and then again with Really Rust. This card really uses colours out of my comfort zone but it has come up quite a treat.

This next one has used Ballet Blue cardstock also with the DSP "Fall Flowers". The first image is stamped with Ballet Blue and then again with Pumpkin Pie. Also a card made with colours out of my comfort zone.

This card is more like my colour style using the lovely new In Colour "Pink Pirouette" (just gorgeous) together with the Prints DSP "Rose Red". I stamped the image firstly with Pink Pirouette and then again with Rose Red. I also stamped the word "kind" and then added an oval embellishment to finish it off.

This is made with the lovely Pale Plum put together with DSP "Petals & Paisleys". I really love the plum and olive colours together. The image was stamped with Pale Plum then again with Old Olive. I then stamped the motif image in pale plum, stamping out a scallop then attaching it to an Old Olive circle.

Hope you have enjoyed looking at my blog.
