Altenew's Peony Bouquet for The Scrapbook Store

Did you see that the store is now selling Altenew stamps and dies? I was so excited and have to admit it was very hard choosing what to get first. But I finally settled on the gorgeous ‘Peony Bouquet’ stamp set and have put together a couple of cards to share with you today.
The fact that these images have so many layers makes them very versatile and fun to use, not to mention quick and easy! And then of course if you wanted to you could just stamp the outline and colour using your favourite medium. So many possibilities!
For more details on how I created these cards, pop over to The Scrapbook Store Blog.

Stampendous 'Owl Clock' for The Scrapbook Store

My card this week is all about the gorgeous Owl Clock image from Stampendous which I recently picked up from The Scrapbook Store! After colouring it and layering up parts of the image I didn’t feel that it needed any further embellishment. These large stamps are great for making a statement!Stampendous Owl Clock copy

Just Add Ink Challenge #306 - Just Add Sympathy



This week's challenge over at Just Add Ink will be my last challenge as a member of the JAI Design Team. After 6 awesome years I have decided to step down, and would like to thank the wonderful design team for their friendship and support, and the participants who have taken the time to visit my blog and leave me such lovely comments.

So I guess since this is a bit of a sad occasion, it seems fitting that our challenge theme this week is 'Sympathy'.



Supplies:
Stamps and Dies: My Favorite Things
Other: Versamark Ink, Copic Markers, white embossing powder, White ink
