In Love with Lace

This week's theme over at Simply Stampin' Challenge is to use lace on your cards - what a fab challenge!

There are so many ways to use lace - actual lace or lacy punches, both of which I love! Here is my Design Team offering:

I thought I'd better get organised and make a Mothers' Day card given that it's Mothers' Day whilst we're away on holiday (with my mum) so I need to take it with me...!

Stamps: Greenhouse Garden, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card: Very Vanilla, Lucky Limeade
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Rose Red
DSP: Pink Pirouette
Punches: Lace Border, Bird punch, Modern Label
Ribbon: Lace
Other: Basic Pearls

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by

Colour Combo

What a fab colour combo we have for you this week over at Simply Stampin', I love pinks and purples so this was perfect for me!

Now I know this colour combo screams doilies because of the DSP but I wanted to do something other than doilies as I've done so many recently I'm actually a little bored of them!

So here is what I came up with...

I know I didn't avoid the doilies completely - I think they make a great background!

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card: Wisteria Wonder, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
DSP: Flirtatious Specialty
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette
Ribbon: Wisteria Wonder
Punches: Scallop Border, Decorative Label, Circle

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by

Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone

It's Sketch week over at Simply Stampin and here is what we came up with for you:

A really great sketch and here is my DT entry:

Now I wanted to use soft subtle colours but for some reason I had a strange desire to use Concord Crush, not exactly soft or subtle! I think Pink Pirouette is probably a bit light for this colour combo but hey ho, I think it turned out ok (ish)

Stamps: Precious Butterflies, Teeny Tiny Wishes
DSP: Concord Crush
Card: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade
Ink: Concord Crush, Lucky Limeade, Pink Pirouette
Punches: Circles, Eyelet Border
Ribbon: Lucky Limeade

I love this stamp set - a new one for me and I think it's going to be another favourite!

Thanks for stopping by

Well it's that time of year again when those lovely hearts make an appearance and here is my Valentine's offering and my DT entry for this week's Simply Stampin' Challenge:

I actually used this card for a workshop I did last week and the hostess wanted Valentines but in Rich Razzleberry rather than the usual reds and she didn't want it too lovey dovey, which I think I achieved!

Stamps: Perfect Postage, Borderlines, Confetti, En Francais, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card: Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla
Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette
Punches: Heart to Heart, Postage Stamp, Word Window, Modern Label, Eyelet border
Ribbon: Very Vanilla

Hope you like it and I hope my Husband does!
