Bloomin' Beautiful

I love this Bloomin’ Beautiful stamp set – and I see that it’s in the new UK Stampin’ Up catalogue that’s coming out soon too. It’s about time we had some decent stamps in our catalogue and not just retired sets from the US. Ok – off my soap box and on to the cards!

I made this card for the lovely Anne for her birthday. It’s very pink but I had some fun colouring in the images with my new Copic markers. I found when I was practicing with them that they picked up the black Stazon from the stamped image so I experimented with embossing my image as on this card and I like it better. I am waiting on some Memento ink as I hear the copics work well with that particular ink.

While I had the images stamped off I made this card. It’s very therapeutic sitting colouring whilst watching TV of an evening. The paper is called Ginger Blossom by SU and a little bit of Hodgepodge Hardware holds the sentiment. The flower is double stamped and given a little lift with some dimensionals.

This one was made for a sketch challenge over at SCS. It was really tricky to get my diamonds to match up – where is Paul with his set square when I need him?

Thanks for stopping by :)
