Simply Flowers

Here are todays Create & Take cards. They have not come out very well on the scanner. The colours are more pastel in pinks & greens and they are all on white card. I love the simplicity of these cards and also find that Jane Gill's Script Stamp Set compliments them beautifuly. I have used parts of the the Imaginisce Wild Flower Stamp, the 1.5" scallop square punch and Jane Gill's Script Stamp Set.

Kim's Class

I hope you are all enjoying the sun this Bank Holiday weekend. Here are the cards from Kim Fee's classes on Saturday. Kim used cuttlebug embossing dies and her own templates to create these card effects. The last card was made with the Flower Impressabitlity die. Kim used a brayer to ink over the template and put it through the cuttlebug to create the effect. The paper range she used was the Bloom & Grow from MME and the stamps are Penny Black Micey Day!

Create & Take

This is something a little different this week and something that I haven't done for a long time. I thought I would try some embossing with X-Cut Stencils which we have in the sale. I am quite pleased how they come out and particularly like the flowery ones. I also made a flower with the scallop circle punch which Stamping Caz showed us how to do on one of her classes.

A little Birdie Told me....

This cute card was made for us by one of our customers, Ruth Bates. She had used the 'Hello Birdie' stamp set from Hero Arts with lovely pinks & brown tones. This is definately one I will have to copy, thanks Ruth for the idea!

Dont forget that Paula is demonstrating at Crafts U Love tomorrow from 10am. There has been a slight change of plan, she is now demonstrating Nesties instead of Basic Grey. But the good news is that in store tomorrow the Nesties will be £3 off, so we hope to see you there!

Create & Take

On this weeks Create & Take I have used the Woodware Stamp Set, "Mary & Friends" This is a great stamp set which has 3 main images and lots of sentiments. I have used the 'with love' sentiment on a piece of Bazzill cut out with a 1 1/2" scallop circle punch and finished off with some lace.
