Bugs and Daisies

I am back to show you a couple of cards that I made using the gorgeous Upsy Daisy set and teemed it up with the bugs from Bugs and Kisses. Not a likely combination but I think they came up quite cute even if I say so myself!!
With this first card I used Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip and stamped the daisies in Kiwi Kiss onto White cardstock. I then stamped the bugs straight onto the cardstock.

This second card is pretty much exactly the same except that I stamped the bugs onto White cardstock and then cut them out. I then popped them up to give them a bit of a lift.

Anyway, I really should be making Christmas cards but so far just haven't got the inclination. Although, I am currently working on ideas for my mum and mother-in-law so I guess I have made a start.

Always Hearts

Hi to everyone out there in the stamping world. After having a busy week of making cards for Christmas pressies I thought I would have a break and post a lovely card that I had made a few weeks ago with the lovely "Always" set.

This would be the perfect anniversary or wedding card and I have a couple of big ones coming up next year with family members. Here it is:-

I'm loving the colour combination of Almost Amethyst, Close to Cocoa and Very Vanilla, just gorgeous!! I used the beautiful swirls from "Priceless" inked in Almost Amethyst and stamped on Very Vanilla. The hearts are cut out and then layered onto Close to Cocoa and cut out again (don't look too closely!!).

Enjoy your day and happy stamping!!!

Always & Flower Fusion

Good morning to everyone out there in the blogging and stamping world. I had a day where I made quite a few cards with the lovely Always set (which I have only just acquired!! - took me long enough). Here is one of those cards which was inspired by this lovely card I came across on Splitcoaststampers.

It's not the best of photos, I was having a bit of a play around with the camera and lighting. I used Old Olive as the base card and stamped the branch image onto Whisper White card using Old Olive. I then attached the flowers with brads. I used Purely Pomegranate to cut out the scallop circle and inked the saying from "Best Yet" in Pomegranate. This was a very simple and quick card which came up a treat.

Thanks for looking!!
