If you do not wish to make a mothers day card, you can swap out the sentiment and I hope that the three cards in three very different styles show you that the stamp set is not just for Mothers day but is super versatile.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and try not to think of me in Orlando ;)

Painted Petals from Stampin Up

Here is one of the cards we made at the January technique card making class using the Painted Petals stamp set.
Painted-Petals card making class

We used one of the masks from the annual stampin up catalogue and created a dotty background with crumb cake ink and a sponge dauber.  I then stamped the pretty flowers and leaves and added some glitter for an extra touch of detail.  I reached for one of the favourite bundles from the new Spring & Summer seasonal on page 31 and used the greeting from the Crazy About You stamp set and the you word from the hello you thinlit dies.

All finished off with some candy dots! Click any of the images or products below to visit my online shop and place your own order or get in touch as I would love to help.

Handmade Wedding Card using a sketch from Stamping&Blogging

I made another handmade wedding card, I’m on a roll! I simply love the new stamp set ‘For the new two’ and seem to be reaching for it often at the moment. I was inspired by the colours in the Stacked with love paper stack and here is what I made –

The ribbon I used is the free ribbon you can choose with a £45 order during sale-a-bration. I love how it contrasts with the blushing bride and crisp cantaloupe colours.

I created a lift up tag on the front of the card and the ribbon keeps the flap laying flat.  When you lift up the flap you can see another stamped greeting –

Whilst you are busy reading this post I am in Orlando on a Stampin’ Up! leadership conference.  I cant wait to tell you all about it and I sincerely hope its a darn site warmer than the weather I left behind but I don’t suppose there will be much time for soaking up the suns rays as its rather a fleeting trip.  I will be back Monday morning and hope to have taken lots of photos to share with you.

Let’s go and see what the other talented ladies have made (two of whom are also on the trip in Orlando with me!) –

Stampin Up Mini-Album

I coordinated the project with the colours used in the paper stack and decorated the inner pages to my hearts content.  I am flying off to the Netherlands today to spend a weekend with my Dutch Stampin’ Up! team and we will be making this album together.  Wish me luck there is nearly 100 of us but I know it will be fun and we will have a wonderful time together.

I will share more photos of the album in the coming weeks and months and I do plan that we will make this project at my upcoming customer craft day in March so be sure to check out my classes and events tab at the top of my blog for more information.  Mark the date in your diary as I would love to spend the day with you.

So wishing you all a wonderful weekend, I will be back briefly next week but more about that next week….
