Gardening Fun

I hope you are having a good weekend! I have a card to show you today that has been made to wish fathers everywhere a Happy Father’s Day! The image, which is currently in the sale at The Stamp Basket online store, is from Stampavie and is called ‘Gardening Fun’....designer Penny Johnson certainly makes it look fun with all the little helpers on board!

The sentiment on the tag is from the Tina Wenke ‘With love’ stamp set – I just love this set – it’s so versatile, with sentiments suitable for all occasions...and it's also, on special offer at the moment at The Stamp Basket!

The gorgeous background papers are from the Prima ‘Nature Garden’ pad…just so apt for the image! This really is a beautiful pad of paper whether ‘dressed up’ or ‘dressed down’, and can be used to enhance a project or stand alone to speak for themselves as in some of the cards that Kerry‘s made recently. The good news is, this pad, along with a range of other gorgeous Prima pads, is also in the sale over at The Stamp if you've not already done so, why not pop over and take a look...there are lots of bargains to be had!

Now to my dies...I’ve used a range of dies on this card…the Whimsy Corner die set; Memory Box Macarena Corner and Memory Box Nestled Bird cut from the background papers…this is such a sweet, subtle little die which I think adds a lovely detail to outdoor style projects!
The following items are available at The Stamp Basket online store:
Stamps: Stampavie ‘Gardening Fun’; ‘With Love’

Well, that's all from me for today...thanks for stopping by and I do hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Tilly with Presents

The weekend’s here and although it’s not quite summer, I’m looking forward to a dessert of strawberries and chocolate! So, to get me in the mood, I thought I’d have a play with the new mouth-wateringly delicious Wild Rose Studio papers ‘Strawberry Picnic’...well, whilst it’s perhaps still not the weather for a picnic, I can dream can't I?!

The stamp that I’ve used today is from the new Wild Rose Studio Tilly Collection – these are such cute stamps! This one is called ‘Tilly with Presents’ – isn’t she just so darn cute peeping out from behind the presents?!

The sentiments are from the Whimsy ‘Celebration Circle Pennants’ set and die cut with the Whimsy’ Circle Pennants’ die set. I can’t claim any credit for the design of the banner, which is Lisa’s idea…I thought it looked so great on her card a few weeks ago, that I decided to give it ago, so out came my DMC threads to string the banner quick and easy to do, and so effective, me thinks!

Products listed available at The Stamp Basket
Stamps: Tilly with Presents; Whimsy ‘Celebration Circles Pennants’

Tools: Whimsy‘Circle Pennants’ die set; Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch (please e-mail if you would like to order)
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoy the weekend!

Hi everyone. My turn to post today and I thought I’d share a card I’ve made using a Whimsy stamp called ‘Amy’…I just love these stamps by Sylvia Zett…such cute, sunny characters and a real joy to colour too!

The paper is from the pretty Prima Meadowlark Collection…isn’t this pad just gorgeous?!?...and then matted onto Fairy Dust Bazzill card. The sentiment is from the Tina Wenke ‘With Love’ set of stamps by Stampavie which has been die cut with one of the new Memory Box Marshmallow Clouds dies…I am so loving these new dies! There are two clouds in this particular set; this is the smaller of the two and just right for small sentiments or tags!  
Amy has been coloured with copics and ‘blinged’ with stickles:


Stamp: Whimsy 'Amy'

Papers: Prima Meadowlark 6 x 6 paper pack
Card: Craftwork Cards On the Edge Card Pack – Scallop white; Bazzill Fairy Dust
