French Script and Petal Prints

I made this card for a workshop I am doing I used Alisa Tilsner's inspiration for this but have changed it to make it my own. I used Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Whisper White card stock stamped with French Script in Perfect Plum and stamped over it with Always Artichoke and Elegant Eggplant and then stamped the mounted flower using the stampin write markers always artichoke and elegant eggplant and then mounted with elegant eggplant card stock. I finished off with two always artichoke brads. The french script background stamp is on the retired list this is one stamp I will definitely miss.

Loads of Love Truck

We have a special little boys birthday party to go to who is turning 2 so I made this card for him. I used the treehouse paper pack which I love its great for making cards and also for scrapbooking, this is also on the retired list so get in quick. The truck is stamped in black on whisper white cardstock and mounted in the blue out of the treehouse pack. The base of the card is buckaroo blue which is also on the retired list. I coloured the truck with buckaroo blue ink and the aqua painters. The 2 is stamped with the headline numbers and finished with burgundy grossgrain ribbon. The happy birthday stamp is from the Sale-a-bration set Birthday Whimsy. Sale-a-bration is nearly over so if you don't have the stamp set you want contact me to discuss how you can earn them.

Simply Said

This card is made by using the Simply Said stamp set stamped with the stampin write markers in sage shadow and chocolate chip on whisper white and mounted with sage shadow on chocolate chip cardstock. I have finished off by adding ribbon from the seaside ribbon pack and the hodgepode hardware. I just love chocolate chip......

Cute as a Bug

This is a really cute little set. I have stamped in black on whisper white and mounted that on certainly celery and pink passion and stuck that to Pretty in pink cardstock. I have coloured the bugs with the stampin markers to give a darker finish, and finished of with the ribbon from the Sweet Shop pack. This ribbon and the cute as a bug stamp set are both on the retired list and won't be available after March. I will be sad to see these both go.

Mixed Bouquet

This is one of my favourite stamp sets, Mixed Bouquet, and sadly it is on the list of retired stamps, so it won't be available after the 31st March 2008. I have used Ruby Red Cardstock and the Jumbo Bouquet Wheel inked with Ruby Red, and mounted with old olive and creamy caramel out of the earth elements range of cardstock. I have finished of with some brads and hodgepodge hardware. I also used olive organza ribbon and ribbon out of the rustic retreat pack which is also on the retired list. If you wish to order any of the retired stamps or accessories please email me.
