Choose Happiness

Finally had a few minutes to be able to sit down and play with one of my new stamp sets and the new Incolours for
2015-2016. Really love these new colours, they’re so sweet and subtle.

Mini Treat Bag

One of the new framelits in the Occassion Catalogue is a mini treat bag.  I’ve only had a small opportunity to play so far but I ca see great potential.  Especially for Easter gifts.  I ended up making the bag and a card insert, it’s very simple, but sometimes simple is good.  I especially loved how the colour combination turned out. Really liked the brown colours with the red and blue.

Sea Street

I don’t often make children’s cards, by kids are a bit past that age.  And I’m very much a floral girl. But, I couldn’t resist this cute stamp set.  I bought it in the pre-order and just hadn’t used it yet, until last night.  Trying to get out of my comfort zone I whipped this up, I don’t think it came out too badly.  🙂  I’m interested to see what else I can do with it.

Christmas Card Blitz

Because that’s what I’ve been doing.  The one thing I try to achieve with my Xmas cards are to make them simple and easy to recreate, I try to do 4 or 5 designs a year and reproduce them, I don’t think I have the creative brain at the moment to do individual designs lol.  I really like these ones, especially the Mingle All The Way with the trees and the Seasons Greetings.  Something about the monochrome green combo makes me all happy inside.  Hope you like them, if you do please leave a comment below, I think people are reading this but would love to know what you think.  Cheers!

Happy-HolidaysThe colours here are Cheery Cobbler, Blackberry Bliss and Always Artichoke.

Seasons-Greetings

Garden Green, Sahara Sand and Pistachio Pudding.

Trees

My favourite, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Garden Green.

Perfect Pennants

Sometimes it’s really hard trying to think of what to write on a blog.  Especially when all you’re doing is writing a card and you aren’t sure how many people are reading it lol.  But, I think the colours on this card really make it pop, the Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point go really well together.  Not quite sure about the big flowers at the front but live and learn.  All in all, it’s still a pretty nice card in my humble opinion.

Hardwood

Well, this is amazing, I’m still posting!  Seems I’m getting my love of card making back after so long, very happy.  Hopefully I’ll be able to keep it up.  🙂  This is the card I made today, I really do like how it turned out, I find it very difficult to make cards that can be masculine.  I don’t seem to buy enough sets for it, I tend to stick to flowers and girly things.  This was made using the Hardwood background stamp, which I am going to use again very soon, it’s so cool.  And the Perfect Pennants set.  The colours are Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Tangelo Twist and Lost Lagoon.  The last 2 are the new incolours for this year. 🙂

Bright and Beautiful

Ok, last Xmas card for the week.  I promise I’ll do something different next post.  I love love love this set, and I totally adore these colours.  I really do, the Smoky Slate and Soft Sky look so good together, and I think the colours make for a stunning Xmas card.

_MG_9042The snowflakes come from the Endless Wishes set, I’ve used these a few times now, they make for great background stamping.
