Saturday Six & another swap...

A bundle focus for you today of the lovely Colour & Contour bundle... 

Along with another of my lovely Team Happy Mail swap cards for you... created by the lovely and very talented Suze Jepson of stampinsuse blog fame...

Making 6 inspiring projects in total today... if you check out this swap card I posted earlier too... 

Can't tell you how much I love the daisy type flower in particular... 
Nor can I tell you how many similar style stamps I have from my pre-Stampin' Up! days... as I have always had such a thing about daisies... In fact left to my own devices my garden would probably only have daisy flowers in it!

Also love all the stitched & scalloped rectangular dies and scallop edge die in this set...
And finishing off with 4 more lovely projects for inspiration...

Thursday Trio - Elegantly Said Flowers of Friendship

Quick share of the mini A7 sized Elegantly Said & Flowers of Friendship cards I sent out with the new catalogues earlier this year... 
Well I had to play with all my new 2021-2023 In Colors at the time... 
As well as send out a In Color Shimmer Vellum feature... as the shimmer of these Vellum sheets is gorgeous in the flesh...
Loved these mini cards... Though it surprised me that my favourite was the Pale Papaya one...

Wednesday Watercolor Shapes #1

Starting off a new series with the fabulous "must-have" Watercolor Shapes stamp set... 

Now I know that some of my ladies will LOVE these stamps... especially as it will stop them having to use the Stamped Acrylic Block technique in the future (which proved to be a very "marmite" technique  - 3/10 crafters hating it!!)

Have to admit that this could be a long series as my mind is awash with ideas... but starting off simply today...

So just a simple little scene... using the large rectangle stamp in the Watercolor Shapes set...

Balmy Blue sky... over-inked at the bottom with Soft Succulent for the grass... and stamped on a Whisper White panel...

Then I grabbed the Mountain Air trees and birds... 

Inking up the trees with Evening Evergreen and Early Espresso trunks and Early Espresso birds...

And finished it all off with a Biggest Wish greeting inked up using Evening Evergreen... another "must have" stamp set for me... 


Some mounted on a Balmy Blue card blank... and some on Evening Evergreen... just in case you were wondering...
