Botanical Blooms Card

There are many flower stamps sets to choose from in the annual catalogue, and the "Botanical Blooms" stamp set is by far my favourite. I will be sharing a few different cards that I have made using this stamp set over the coming months, which range from a simple card through to cards that are a little more difficult to make.

I wanted to give the card a slight grungy look, so I used the "French Foliage" stamp set to achieve the result I was after. I think both these stamps sets work really well together and I love the colour combination I used.

Detailed Floral Thinlits Engagement Card

I have made a few cards using the "detailed floral thinlits dies", which I will share over the coming months. I think these dies are perfect for making engagement and wedding cards as the finish is elegant.

In my supply list, I tried to include both the stamp sets that I used, but they were not available for me to select, so I have listed the digital version of the stamp sets instead, just to show which stamps were used.

Christmas Pines Card

I'm in love with the "Christmas Pines" stamp set and the coordinating thinlits dies. I love how natural this set is, and it really represents an Aussie Christmas. The sentiment I chose is from an old stamp set called "Christmas Punch" which retired quite a few years ago.

Christmas Jar of Love Card

The "Jar of Love" stamp set and coordinating thinlit dies are by far my favourite bundle in the annual catalogue. These jars are so versatile and they really do make the perfect shaker card. I have made many jar cards, and will share them over the coming weeks.

Today's card is a simple snowflake shaker card which is filled with 5 small snowflakes with rhinestones in the center and some "Diamond Dust" by Floracraft.

Botanical Builder Birthday Card

The "Botanical Blooms" stamp set along with the coordinating "Botanical Builder" framelits are definitely my favourite flower set in the current catalogue. I have made many cards using this set and will share them with you over the coming months, the one below was the easiest and quickest one to do.

Weather Together Compassionate Card

The below card was made for one of my club nights. I had a request to make a card using both the "Weather Together" and "Love You Lots" stamp sets. After a little bit of thought, I decided to make a shaker card with the two stamp sets.....after all, who doesn't love an interactive card!

Painter's Palette Christmas Card

When I first laid my eyes on the "Painter's Palette" stamp set, I knew it was one I had to buy. To be honest, I really only like the easel out of the whole stamp set, I am not that fussed on the rest of the stamps. I knew I could create some nice cards with the easel and the below card is my first one.

I wanted to create an artist theme for my card, so I needed to come up with an artist's palette and paintbrush to really set my scene. I punched small circles in a range of colours (the same colours as in the picture) and added a white perfect accent (without the white backing) to each colour, which made my colours look wet and glossy.....just like paint.

I am really happy with the end result and can't wait to make a few more cards using the easel.

Joy to the World Christmas Card

Over the coming weeks I will be sharing many Christmas cards with you.

I wanted to come up with a design using the large letter framelits as I haven't used these dies as yet. I decided to make a Christmas flower using the "Reason for the Season" stamp set and coordinating punch to use as the letter "O". Now there are not many 3 or 4 letter Christmas words to choose from that have the letter "O" in them. The two that came to my mind were "joy" or "noel" and as you can see, I decided to use the word "joy".

Lucky for me I purchased the "Jolly Christmas" stamp set last year, so I was able to use the "to the world" stamp which was the perfect sentiment for my card. Lastly, I added some rhinestones in various sizes to finish off the card.
