It's been a busy week workwise, but the arrival of new stamps had me itching to get back home and start inking and stamping! I'm finding that the challenges give me a good kickstart instead of just staring at papers and wondering what to do :)
This week's challenge at Papertake was to use floral embellishments. I have several huuuge flowers so I've used one of them on this thankyou card. The big green button has 2008 embossed on it and it's held in place with two shades of narrow purple grosgrain ribbon.
This is one of the new Magnolia stamps I received this week - I just couldn't wait to get her stamped and coloured in! The card fits this weeks 'Love' theme at the Scrummy Stash Cafe and also the current Tilda & Co theme of 'Romance' and use of a buckle.
Here's another of my new stamps, isn't she gorgeous! This one is from the new 'Lola and Simon' range by Sugar Nellie. I've been wanting to try a kick stand card for a while and I'm really pleased with how it turned out! This card was made for the February cardmaking challenge over at UKScrappers - create a Valentine's card in non-Valentine colours.
