Tuesday Trio of Trios - Art in Bloom

Such a pretty set of three cards... care of the Art in Blooms bundle... 
Which is in itself a trio of products... stamps, dies and an embossing folder too... of which the latter I have to admit... had slipped my eye!! Clever set...
Cards perfect for any level of crafter... or any amount of time you happen to have to make & get in the post!

But wait... there's more... Yes another 3 projects to share with you... making a trio of trios in all today...

More on Monday - Hand Penned

Another inspiring creation for you today... using the Hand Penned floral stamp set... 

But before I start... don't forget that the extra free £20 Stampin Rewards Craft & Collect promotion for a £200 + order ends today... and that my double gift value offer (for orders £25 to £150) also ends today at 5pm...

Created by our very talented Barbara Norton (who is currently blog-less as we say in the trade.. but I will be sure to pass on any of your messages... ) Thank you for your gorgeous Happy Mail swap Barbara... 

CLICK HERE for the details on the Hand Penned stamps and all the Suite... And I do have to admit that this bundle and suite is appealing to me more and more every-time I look at it... check out those fabulous Penned Flowers dies... 

Barbara used an Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Pale Papaya colour scheme... with a shiny touch of gold embossing powder to highlight... along with a Happy Thoughts sentiment punched out using the (retired) Story Label punch...

And the Happy Thoughts sentiment stamp set is one well worth checking out... as not only is it only £10 in the Sale... but it has a range of "similar sized" greetings ... so particularly useful for a quick stamp & punch to add to a card as you need it... though it is retiring soon ..so you will have to be quick...

Sunday Suite - Snail Mail retiring soon & discounts...


Now I am probably the last demonstrator in the world to share the Snail Mail suite... as cutesy, colouring, bugs and animals are not exactly my thing(s)... 

But I know that they are for lots of you! 

And it is retiring soon... At the end of June to be precise... So it really is now or never... And there are even some nice reductions too...

So starting off with the whole Collection Suite (aka the Buy It All in one click) Note: the Collection is only £62 if you buy all the parts individually... so a further £3 saving overall...

Comprising the Snailed It bundle (Note: the bundle still 25p cheaper than the individual parts)
Including the Snailed It stamps... reduced to just £13.50...
And the Snail dies....

Then we have the Snail Mail papers... Click HERE for the sheet by sheet shots...
 
And last but no least... at half price... the Resin Hearts embellishments...
And just to finish off... a few inspiring projects for you... though if you CLICK HERE you will see a lot more!!

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...

Tuesday Trio of Trees for all seasons...

Today we have a card with a stunning trio of multi-coloured Inspiring Canopy die cut trees by the very talented Uma Kathirgamanathan of A Sense of Uma blog fame... 

A tree for every season (bar the winter plain branches)... simply gorgeous... 

Thanks so much (again) for the happy mail and for swapping with me Uma... 

Uma also used the co-ordinating Inspired Thoughts for the greetings... 

And the Picture This dies for the 3 rectangle apertures... 


Spot the dash-dot faux stitching round each of the apertures...

Click here for Uma's post of another version of this card using the Beauty of The Earth papers... and a Facebook Live too...

And here are some more projects using these 2 wonderful products... I am definitely sold on both these now!! They do work together SO well... Expensive swap card Uma...
