Create a Cupcake

We made this card at my Stamp-a-stack this month. It's a great birthday card for children and is so quick and easy. I've only used one stamp set: Create a Cupcake on page 36 of the IBC. I've used a number of punches, including the Cupcake Builder punch. Ink and cardstock colours include Concord Crush, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.

Hello Blossoms

This is a card that we made at a recent Stamp-a-stack to ring in Spring. It was really simple to make and didn't take long at all.

We used Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White Cardstock with Old Olive Ink. The stamp used is called Hello Blossoms.

The beautiful pattern made with the Tempting Turquoise cardstock was made by using the Lace Ribbon Border Punch.

Some of the ladies made the card a bit more colourful by using markers to make the flowers different colours. Another idea is to put buttons over the flowers, like I've done here with the Designer Buttons (the Brights collection).

Bold Brights and Trinkets

I put this layout together from a Step by Step challenge at Home and Scrapped. I love the Designer Series Paper in the new Idea Book and Catalogue. The patterned paper on this layout is from Big Top Birthday. It uses Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Real Red, Peach Parfait, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White. I've used these colours in the cardstock and ink on the page. I've also used the stamp sets Sweets for the Sweet and Delicate Doilies.

I also love the new trinkets and I've used one here. I think it adds a nice touch.

I wanted to use the bright colours with these photos because this was a really happy day for me. It was on my trip to Europe three years ago. Ben and I were just about to set off on our bus trip around the continent. These photos are from our week with Ben's family at the Cotswolds in England - it's a really beautiful town full of thatched-roof cottages. It was the first time that I'd seen snow. It was also Easter Sunday, so we had a white Easter, which was very special.

It's been a while...

I've been a naughty blogger, but I have a lot to show you to make up for lost time.

The first is a card I made recently using some great new stamps and my favourite colour combo - Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso.

I've only used one stamp set - Posy Punch which is only available to hostesses. This set has 3 beautiful flowers which conveniently coordinate with the Fancy Flower punch. They also lend themselves very well to the Rhinestone jewels. The beautiful border is a Textured Impressions folder, Framed Tulips.

I'll be back soon with more.
