Oh the weather outside...

Hi guys! 

OH my goodness, can you believe its been almost a month since my last post!?! I am so sorry about that!! I've been sick for the past I don't know how long - at least 3 weeks - but it seems a whole lot longer than that!! Yes, my body finally succombed and cane down with the lurgy, and then just as I was getting better I got sick with another virus - I spent almost an entire week in bed asleep! Gracious me!! Anyway, I seem to be on the road to recovery now and am swapped with a ton of wedding stationary things for a couple of customers - it is a lot of fun but its a lot of work too! 

Anyway, I'm sorry I've been absent, but I'm here and hopefully I'll be about to blog a bit more...

We are experiencing horrid weather - snow in March - come on, its MARCH!!! Anyway I have a couple weather inspired cards for your enjoyment!

Stamp Set: Rain or Shine
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Basic Grey, Melon Mambo
Cardstock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight
Punch: Itty Bitty
Ribbon: Melon Mambo Striped Organdy
Big Shot: Needlepoint TIEF
Accessories: Dazzling Details, Rhinestone

This was the make and take I had for my open house to launch the new Spring-Summer catalogue. Isn't it fun!? I am just LOVING the stamping off technique which basically involves stamping an image several times without reinking to get different shades of one colour - here I did it with the heart rain drops.  The little knotted piece of ribbon is such a great way to add a little ribbon to a card and a awesome way to use up any scraps! 

Stamp Set: Rain or Shine
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Basic Grey, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist
Cardstock: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Basic Grey

This card is inspired by one of the patterns in the Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP which is just covered in loads of little umbrellas. I had so much fun making this one! 

I hope you enjoyed these creations, I have lots more to follow!! 

Have a great weekend!

  1. I love this set, but didn't get it (yet...). Both cards are so pretty and I love the ribbon on the umbrella handle!
