Thank You cards

I made some Thank You cards for my customers recently using the new stamp set "Sweet Stems". I punched out the "thanks so much" with the word window punch. I stamped the background of the Very Vanilla card with the Boho Backgrounds stamp and Pink Pirouette ink. Layered with Pink Pirouette card. It is a simple card but so far the reaction has been positive.

The second card is using the "One of a Kind" stamp set. I am so glad this set made it into the new catalogue. I love the patterns and the fact that there is a matching punch. I love my punches!!! The colours used are Taken with Teal and Apricot Appeal. The flower is coloured with our Markers in the same colours as the card stock.

Tunnel Card

I downloaded a whole heap of techniques from the Splitcoast Stampers website and thought I might start trying them out.

This card is called a Tunnel Card and I have used the same colours as they used in the example but changed the stamp set to the Level 1 Hostess set - Organic Grace. I really love the flower in this set.

I used Riding Hood Red on the front of the card and used the Scallop circle and 1 3/8" circle punches on the card front. This was a really fun card to make and I love the end result. It does look better IRL but hopefully you can get the idea

Fresh Cuts card

I did a workshop with some lovely ladies the other day and we made this card with the new Fresh Cuts stamp set. I also used the new In Colours - Riding Hood Red and Pacific Point. I used the 1 3/8" square punch on both colours and then the 1 1/4" square punch on the Pacific Point. I stamped the "For You" using Pacific Point and then punched it with a 1" square punch.

I am looking forward to making some cards with this stamp set and the Fresh Cut cards. I have seen the examples in the new catalogue and think they look great

I also made some small love notes to demo a couple of techniques.

The first one is showing watercolouring on our watercolour paper using Riding Hood Red ink and I stamped the background leaves with Kiwi Kiss. And of course, I then finished it with Kindy Glitz. The stamp set is Embrace Life.

The second one is showing the Poppin' Pastels technique. I stamped with Versamark then sponged Real Red and Regal Rose over the petals. I used Pumpkin Pie in the centre of the flower. Then I Kindy Glitzed the centre of the flower. I stamped the small flower on the Baja Breeze card using Baja Breeze ink and then stamped on the Pink Pirouhette card using Pink Pirouhette ink. The stamp set is Eastern Blooms.

Hopefully I will have some more cards soon.
