Another card created using the Rose Wonder stamp set and corresponding die. I have water-coloured the stamped image using ink-pads and an aqua wash pen on watercolour paper. I have then die cut the rose using the corresponding die. Love how this has turned out!
Mixing up a bit of old and new for this card. Not 100% sure whether I like how this has turned out yet - it may be a bit too busy for me, but here goes:
I've CASE'd the layout for this card from a craft magazine. The little frog and the sentiment is from the "Love You Lots" Hostess stampset and the banner is from the "Thoughtful Banners" stampset - punched out with the corresponding punch. I've used the Sweet & Sassy Framelits die to make the hearts and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets Die for the swirly diecut. All of these are available to see in the new Annual Catalogue that went live yesterday. Cardstock is Basic Black and Whisper White. The patterned paper is retired stock (sorry!!)
To purchase any of the current items - you can shop online here or email me.

So having a play today with some new and old products:
The sentiment is from the Butterfly Basics stampset which is carrying over into the new catalogue in June, The new stampset I have used is called Swirly Bird and comes with a corresponding die. I've also used some of the new In Colors of Emerald Envy, Sweet Sugarplum and Dapper Denim. Want to know how I created the fancy edge on the bottom of the card? I slipped it in through the top of the largest Deco Labels Framelits Die and die-cut just one edge.
A few weeks back I participated in a "card recipe" challenge. Each night over 7 days we were given a new instruction as to how to create. We basically had free reign as to which stamps were used but were given colours and cardstock size to use. I had no idea as to how the card was going to turn out but it was a lot of fun making it! This is ow mine turned out:
I am quite happy with how it turned out - what do you think? Luckily these stamps are not on the retired list so you can still purchase them. Click here to go to my online shop!
