Some Hero Arts and Gina K

When we were in the US recently I did buy myself a [few] crafty bits including some Spellbinders dies and these lovely frame its stamps and dies from Hero Arts.  This dogwood card was my first play with them and I can see them being a real favourite!  So easy to stamp first and then die cut rather than the other way around.

Next up I used another old favourite stamp set - A Year of Flowers from Gina K - in a trellis with lots of masking.  All the other supplies are from Papertrey Ink, and I stamped the quatre foil die cut with the wood grain stamp.

I think this will fit in again with the anything goes over at a Passion for Papertrey too.

Right - better head off - work tomorrow!

Together Forever Gift Card Holder

We had the most lovely day yesterday - some good friends renewed their wedding vows in a beautiful 11th century church in Oxfordshire. 

This is a little gift card holder I made with a big shout at Debbie Olson's example here but not as classy!

A Bit of Background Basics: Rainbows

A few cards made with Background Basics: Rainbows tonight.  I have had these on the camera for a week and forgot to download them - until I was looking at a Passion for Papertrey and remembered there is an "anything goes" challenge which I meant to go in with.

This first one was stamped in winter wisteria and lavender moon - but beware leaving your stamping out on the table in bright sunlight - or this is how badly it fades!

Hibiscus burst and raspberry fizz next...

and finally aqua mist and Hawaiian shores.

Thanks for stopping on by - it has been a beautiful, hot weekend here that's gone all too quickly!
