Christmas Bells

Back with another Christmas card!

This one uses the set Seasonal Bells which is still available.

I've used some of the 'This Christmas' Speciality DSP from the main catalogue and picked out the Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler for the bell colours.

There is a matching punch for the bells of course.
I shall be back tomorrow with a variation on this stamp set.

More cards!

Another mini catch up.

I'll start with Christmas card of the week!  This week I've used the 'Reason for the Season' stamp set from the main catalogue and teamed it with the Oval Layering Framelits and the Stitched Shapes Framelits:

Then I did a close up on the 2 notecard options that the ladies made at the last party I did.

The little Crumb Cake cards are a great size and I've used the Avant Garden and Delicate Details SAB stamp sets:

This z-fold card uses the 'Party with Cake' and 'Cool Treats' stamp sets.

I'll be back next time with details of some new releases in the Sale-a-bration freebies!

Everything will be OK

A little 3x3" card today as a little 'something' to give someone who needs it.

The sentiment is from the SAB set Designer Tee which does have a few nice little stamps in it (10 to be exact).

I've embossed the stamp with copper embossing powder, cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and added a mid layer of copper foil sheet (still available).

The backing paper is a rather lovely foil piece from the Affectionately Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper pack (it's definitely one of those 'not to use' pieces!).

I've also cut out a couple of the little flowers and added them for a 3D effect and finished with pearls.

Christmas Spirit

Another week, another Christmas card!

Something very different this time as it is in Very Vanilla and Basic Black.
I've used the Woodland embossing folder and Perfect Pines stamp set and matching framelits.

I've added a little of the This Christmas Speciality Designer Series Paper along the bottom.

Sending Love

Some little notes made with the Sending Love Suite.

It's ideal for Valentine's Day but then throughout the year and I do still love this elite envelopes!

Stamps, Framelits, DSP, ribbon, embellishments are all available of course!

Peekaboo bookmarks

I'm still rather liking the Avant Garden set which is a freebie if you spend over £45 during Sale-a-bration.

The Peekaboo Peach is nice and cheery too on what turned out to be a rather grey and wet day today.

This also means that the latest orders are doing the rounds this week!

Christmas Wishes

Still keeping it simple with Christmas card of the week!

This card shows off the 'This Christmas' DSP which is in the main catalogue.
The card base picks out the Cherry Cobbler in the design and I've added some matching enamel shapes in the corners.

The sentiment is from the co-ordinating stamp set, cut out with Stitched Shapes Framelits and finished with some gold ribbon.

Happy Birthday Val

This is the birthday card for Val, one of the Bloomin' Buds team.

I've used the stamp set Dragonfly Dreams for the 'dots' which are lovely for a little something in the background.  One of the matching thinlits provides the dragonfly.

I've then layered some punched circles on one of the new Lace Doilies.  These are lovely and double sided in Whisper White or Very Vanilla to co-ordinate with different projects.  At £4 for 24 I think they are pretty reasonable too.

The sentiment is from a SAB set called Designer Tee.

Colours used are:
Crumb Cake
Very Vanilla
Soft Sky

SAB card

Yesterday we had our monthly Bloomin' Buds meeting and it's great to see some new team members and the team have had a few promotions this month.

This was my swap card:

I've used 3 different Sale-a-bration stamp sets - Avant Garden, Delicate Details and Designer Tee.

Inks used are Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach.
I've sneaked another lovely Stitched Shapes Framelit in there too!

Another catch up

Oh dear, because I haven't kept up with Facebook you didn't get to see last weeks Christmas card!

This card uses the Detailed Santa Thinlits which are still available to buy and ideal for a quick but very effective card.

Then there is another Beautiful You stamp in Flirty Flamingo which I have paper-pieced:

Followed by another egg box.  I have kept this one natural again (I will colour the next one) and added the Hey Chick stamps as promised.  This was the hostess gift for the party I did last week.
