This card is one which I think looks much better in real life.  I used a Cherry Lyn doily die cut and stamped on it using my favourite flower from the SU summer silhouettes set.  I also stamped in white on the  crumb cake card stock and then finished off with some ribbon, button and banner greeting.

Here is a simple card using the SU Apothecary Art stamp set with the matching Labels Framelits and some scraps of paper.

More Cards

Here are a couple more cards I have made recently.

This one has gone to my Sister-In-Law whose birthday is today.  Unfortunately the card is very unlikely to have made it to her on time as we have had some rather unseasonal weather here bringing the island to a standstill!

I used the En Francais background stamp and Summer Silhouettes for the flowers two of my favourite and most used stamps both from Stampin Up!

The next card I wasn't so sure about - I like the effect of stamping multiple flowers on the top note die cut using the stippled blossoms set but not sure about the ribbon, but couldn't work out anything better to do with it - maybe it will grow on me.

PS the colours are a better match in real life!

A couple of cards

I haven't been doing much scrapbooking lately preferring instead to make cards, which I haven't been getting round to posting on here so I decided it's time to catch up a bit.

As it's Mother's Day it seems appropriate to start with the card I made for my Mum.

I chose a selection of stamps that fitted the squares and stamped them in raspberry ink, having matted the squares onto raspberry card.  The Stampin Up sets I used were Circle Circus, Summer Silhouettes, Serene Silhouettes, Papillon Potpourri, For my Family and a couple of others I can't remember.

The second card also uses a stamp from the Serene Silhouettes set with the vine street embossing folder.

Challenge 9 - A Mothers Love

Over on The Cupboard Trilogy Challenge this month's challenge is "A Mothers Love'.  I found a photo from last year taken on Mothers Day so I thought this would fit the challenge.  I kept it simple just punching out lots of scallops in bright colours and playing around until I liked the result.

Sorry I did struggle to get a good photo - the background is white!
