Lotus Blossom

Dear Crafters,

Sale-a-bration has begun and with any $90 order placed, you can also get this stamp set for FREE! Yes, you heard it right, FREE!

I am loving this set as it can be used for so many types of cards but also on your scrapbook pages!

Lotus Blossom

I used the Lotus Blossom stamp with Pacific Point and Soft Sky inks. The stem is Old Olive ink.

The base card is embossed with the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) as the background. The next layer is Pacific Point card sponged with coordinating ink. The Whisper White layer that the Lotus Blossom is stamped on also has the small image from the Holiday Home stamp set, which reminds me of the dandelions that the kids blow for fairies!

I added some soft sky ribbon to the bottom of the card on a strip of sticky strip, and bunched it as I placed it along from one end the other. It is such an effective way of adding some texture to your card!

I also added a button with some linen thread.

Hello  Crafters,

My love for Lost Lagoon continues and this was the perfect challenge for me this week. I wanted to try something new that I have wanted to create for some time and it is a Bookmark Card.  You know when you want to give someone a card but with an extra little something special? Well this is the card for you!

 You still don’t see what I am talking about? Hmmm, check out the next photo!

Aha, now you can see the inside of the card and the right hand side is a bookmark!
Bookmark Card
This bookmark is perforated where it joins the card, so the recipient can tear it off to keep and use as a bookmark when reading their favourite novel.
How cool is that?

Holiday Home

Hello Crafters,

Today I want to share a card I have made using the Holiday Home Stamp Set and coordinating framelits. When I first browsed the Holiday Catalogue, this was one of the first sets I marked as ‘I want it’.  I could see straight away that this set had potential, not only for Christmas cards, but also scrapbooking pages, Project Life pages, Halloween cards as well as New Home cards!

The Holiday Catalogue goes live on 28 August 2014, so be sure to request your copy to be mailed out now!

Holiday home

I case’d this from the Holiday Catalogue but changed up the colours and altered it slightly. How cute are these little home image!

Holiday home

I used the Blendabilities to colour small parts of the homes and added the red lights which is part of the stamp set. Be sure to check these products out on page 16 of the Holiday Catalogue.

Buying both the 24 piece Stamp set and coordinating Framelits can save you 15% if you purchase them as a Bundle for only $55.95!
