Floral Phrases Week - Card #3

Todays sample of the fabulous Floral Phrases stamp set is this beauty!!   I CASED this from a friends card....she used a completely different stamp set and colour combo...but I just loved the design/sketch.   Here is my version.



I used Smokey Slate card stock as the background layer to soften the Night of Navy...and used more of the pretty Floral Boutique DSP.  What do you think??
Below you will find all the products I used...you can click on a product picture to take you straight to my online store to order.

Floral Phrases Week - Card #1

It's a new week....and a new sample.  This week we are not using a new stamp set from the Occasions catalogue, but a beautiful, bold stamp set from the Annual catalogue.  Floral Phrases from the Floral Boutique Suite on page 77. This card, called a Z-Fold card, was part of the cards we made on Friday at Colourful Cards monthly class.



I used the beautiful Floral Boutique designer series paper to pop out the lovely phrase and rose in the Floral Phrases stamp set.  For a complete list of what I used see below.  Each little picture will take you directly to my online store for more information.

Oh So Succulent Week - Card #3

The final sample for this weeks stamp set - Oh So Succulent.  And this time, I decided to make my own designer series paper.



I am so in love with the Succulent Garden designer series paper, and wanted to re-create my own version....so I could keep making it forever. What do you think? I used Old Olive and Crumb Cake for the big succulents, and Blushing Bride and Smokey Slate for the little dots.  Then using the co-ordinating die set, I made up a succulent with Old Olive to embellish the front.  Imagine the fun you could having making your own designer series paper with this stamp set!!

Next week we will be sampling the Floral Boutique suite.  Until then, have a great weekend....and remember to check out my Youtube channel on Sunday for another Fast & Fabulous card.

Oh So Succulent Week - Card #2


We are still knee deep in snow here in Ontario, Canada...with more on the way today.  So looks like I need another Colourful Card to cheer me up, and what better than this beautiful card using the Oh So Succulent stamp set.


I made this card, using a sketch from Chic-n-Scratch's paper and ink sketches. Love using sketches!!   So quick and easy....just follow the layout using your own imagination.  I used the gorgeous Succulent Garden designer series paper, and matching Calypso Coral card stock, Whisper White card stock, and the beautiful ribbon from Sale-A-Bration.  

Big news....as a treat, I have one (unstamped) kit ready to send to someone. Just leave a comment below on this blog page and I will make the draw at the end of this week.

To make the card yourself....download the PDF of Paper and Ink Sketch #13 and check out the items I used to make it below.  To order, just click on the product item to go directly to my online store.  Don't forget to use Hostess Code RFYAA364
