Letters and Roses


I have a card to show you today using the Bildmalarna Letters and Roses image…she’s such a delightful, sunny little girl, that she’s sure to put a smile on everyone’s face!



I’ve gone with the theme of roses on this card, using backing papers from the Wild Rose Studio ‘Letters from Paris’ pad.  The corner die is one of my favourites - the Memory Box Madera Corner – and the computer generated sentiment has been die cut using Spellbinders Shapeabilities Ribbon Banners.

Here’s a close up of the image, coloured with copics.



All products used are available at The Stamp Basket.

April Sunshine


Hi everyone. My card today showcases a stamp from the new Elizabeth Bell Cottage Cutie Collection by Whimsy called ‘April Sunshine’ – it’s such a cute, versatile image and really lovely to colour! The sentiment on the front of the card is from the ‘With Love’ set of stamps designed by Tina Wenke for Stampavie – there’s a lovely range of sentiments stamps in this set that can be used for so many different occasions, so good value for money…and, of course, being Stampavie, they stamp beautifully.

The papers are Magnolia Sweet Crazy Love Cloudy Turquoise Hearts and Vintage Turquoise – such lovely soft shades…and the good news is, we have a weekend special on the Cloudy Hearts papers at The Stamp Basket this weekend!

The doily behind the image has been made using the Memory Box ‘Quinn Flourish’ – this is a lovely delicate die which would also look great as a focal point for a project. The border has been created using the Martha Stewart Edger ‘Doily lace’ punch and the dragonfly is the smaller baby ‘Willow Dragonfly’ from Memory Box. I’ve decorated the inside of the card to compliment the front, using a corner die from the Whimsy Corner die set, along with the Memory Box ‘Petite Umbrella’ die (optimistically, mine is a parasol!) and the Memory Box ‘Fancy Blossoms’ die set. The sentiments inside the card have been computer generated.

All products used are available at The Stamp Basket.

Floral Square


Hi everyone. I hope you are enjoying your weekend – it's so nice to see the sun again after all the torrential downpours we’ve been having recently!
I have a card to show you today using more of the beautiful Memory Box and Whimsy dies that we have in store. My design is centred around the very beautiful Memory Box Floral Square which has been cut from, and mounted onto bazzill card, and ‘blinged’ with clear rhinestones that I’ve coloured with my copics to match the background papers.


Here's a close up of the floral square:

I put just a whisker of glue under each of the five flowers to hold the die-cut in place, so that I could then 'flick up' the leaves to add dimension.
The papers are from the stunning, new Prima Fairy Belle Collection…sadly, the photograph doesn't really bring out the richness of the aqua and brown combo...this is such a gorgeous pad with surprisingly versatile designs to make projects for both males and females! The flower petals are from the co-ordinating Prima Fairy Belle Essential Petals pack and the pretty wood button is also from the Prima Fairy Belle range.
The corner dies-cuts have been made using one of my favourite dies from the new Whimsy Corner die set – and if you are ever stuck about how to fill a corner, then look no further...there are four very different designs in this set so you can choose your die according to the theme or style of your card!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
