Blooms and Wishes



Some days I just love to create quick and easy cards.  Cards that don't take too long but look good all the same.  Today was one of those days. It's been very hot in Beijing these past few days and I am very thankful for our air conditioning.


I chose 3 colours for each card and kept it really simple, using the design again on the sentiment piece.

I love this yellow card, it looks so bright and happy


The red flowers on this card are happy too and so different to the one above.  I am going to create quite a few of these cards as they are handy to grab when I need something other than a standard greeting card.  I hope you like them too

Flourish Thinlets


I am often asked to create cards with no sentiment on the front and I often struggle with these I feel they can look kind of "naked" without a sentiment.


I have fallen in love with the Flourish thinlets though and to help me get over the lack of sentiment I decided to create some kinds with no stamping on whatsoever!


I love the combination of the gold and Rose Red and the odd use of a diamonte (you can never have too much bling)


I am actually quite happy with how these turned out and I enjoyed not stamping for a while. The Flourish Thinlets come in a bundle with the stamp set but just look what you can make without the stamps!

I am off to play some more.

Oh my word!

Stampin up have totally spoiled us again with this years new catalogue.  It is brimming with beautiful new items that you are going to fall in love with.  I found it very difficult to decide what I wanted to get my hands on first!


I decided to settle on the beautiful new Lovely Words thinlets and I teamed the together with Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  The flower is from an old favourite of mine called Flower Shop.

 There are 3 dies in the set and they are so versatile!  I stamped some background flowers onto the card above made with one of the new In Colours.


This has to be my favourite new In Colour - Lemon Lime Twist,  It's so bright and summery.

If you would like to get your hands on the new catalogue or have a look through it, please click on the Shop Now link and you will be whisked away.

I will try and be a better blogger now the new catalogue is out and until the next time
