So much fun using Stampin' Up Pineapple stamp especially with the new copper embossing powder. The words are from the set Thoughtful Banners which has so many options for words. The Peakaboo Peach flower is die cut using the Botanical Builder Framelits topped with a White Perfect Accent.  Keep going back to these accents....

In This World

This stamp set has been waiting for the weekend to have a play and these are the results. Using the versatile Archival Black ink pad to stamp a few images first then the new In colours Stampin' Write markers along with an Aqua painter the creations evolved from there. The tiny splatters were achieved by flicking the end of a loaded aqua painter.

Botanical Blooms collection

Botanical Blooms Photopolymer Stamp SetThe Botanical Blooms stamp set and matching framelits just scream lush green leaves and rainforest to me, but once in my hands this colour combination arose.  Sahara Sand, daffodil Delight and Whisper White and Archival Basic Black ink for stamping.  I am happy with result though and it just means there's another stamping project for the same products but different colours.  
The inside of the card was stamped across the bottom edge to complete.

Then came this little mini album from a piece of 12" x 12" whisper white cardstock.  I stamped each page and then made a box for it to fit in.  These are great little albums for thoughts, autographs and anything that you like.

Picture Perfect Photopolymer Stamp Set

I'm in the present with my scrapbooking, which is just amazing for me!  These kids have been just made of wonderful lately, so it was easy to get creative with there photo.  The Picture Perfect stamp set provided just the perfect wording along with the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits.

Rose Wonder Stamp set

This card started out with the intention of using hearts for a Valentines card but the Rose Garden thinlit was irresistible. The huge rose stamp from the Rose Wonder set was stamped on with Versamark on the Real Red cardstock as an interesting background.

You've Got This and dotted Lace Trim

Lovely new flower stamp, embossed with clear embossing powder and then water coloured to make it pop. The new In color Stampin' Write Markers together with an aqua pen work wonders. Also I experimented with the new dotted lace trim gathering some, cutting down other pieces of trim.

This card was part of a set created using the images from the Traveller stamp set. The World Map is a digital image adjusted in MDS and printed so as to create a landscape card. 

Blended Bloom

No prizes for guessing which stamp sets and Designer Series Paper is on my desk .  The diagonal striped paper from Typeset series works effectively in small quantities to add interest.

Wisteria Wonder Blendabilities were used to colour the flower with Daffodil Delight Blendabilities for centre.

Blended Bloom and Blendabilities

These are some of the cards created in our first Blendabilities class. Using just the Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabanna Blendabilities sets. A Vintage button was coloured with the Bllendabilities to match the centre of the bloom.
