Beautiful Blooms

I got a new PapertreyInk set last week and was desperate to have a play but just couldn't get the iris stamp to line up properly. So I got out my ruler and pencil and stamped a 11"x8" sheet and had a good practice - like a masterboard or one sheet wonder! I used two different colours and made these for two friends.

My new Stampendous stamp arrived while I was on holiday and so I had to give it a try as soon as I got back. I'm also on a mission to use more of my stash of basic grey papers and so I made this for Sharon as a little rak. The back strip is a piece of beautiful handmade paper - I'm not sure where it came from but the colours were just right for this. I really need a new sewing machine as the tension is all out on my 25 year old machine - maybe I can start dropping pre Christmas hints :)

Double Trouble

My friend Sam and her husband Phil have birthdays a day apart and so I made this pair for them.

I veered a little away from Sam's favourite blue by trying out turquoise and black. The idea for this card was inspired by a lovely lady called Onita from Split Coast Stampers and thanks to her I'm showing it here.

This for Phil was made using an image I stamped while we were all staying with Lorry on the Isle of Skye. The main image is by Paper Bag Studios and the background stamp is by Stamp Camp.


This card was made for Anne for her birthday in August. I thought I would upload it to my SCS album before I went on holiday as it fitted with a couple of challenges. Anne told me that she was cruising the SCS galleries and saw my card which she said just popped out at her. A few days later the card arrived for her and she was a bit shocked - spooky :) Anyway - glad you like it Anne.

Flowers stamped with Doodle This from Stamping Up and the cuttlebug used again with Basic Grey papers. I like how this turned out!

Birthdays Galore

August and early September was a busy birthday time for me - and they all happened whilst we were on our holiday.

This was made for Sheenagh using Blossoms Abound from Stampin Up and my new cuttlebug machine. The flower is by Maya Road which I coloured and clear embossed.

Tasha also had a birthday on the same day and this card was made using Basic Grey papers and Doodle This from Stampin Up.
