Shopping ….

I’ve had notebooks sitting in my box of “stuff” for quiet sometime, just waiting patiently to be decorated or something…. to them.  Well today was the day!
With the rose, I have stamped it 3 times onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Using the Aqua Painter, I then picked up bits of colour from Ruby Red and painted the rose.  I then cut 2 of the stamped images where I thought would best suit the flower.  I used dimensionals to create the layers.  I may even add a little Dazzling Diamonds for a bit more of a lift!
On the inside, I’ve covered the top of the notebook with cardstock & DSP.  I’ve randomly stamped 3 images on the pages, using the different flowers & the colours from the front.  I decided not to add any flower on the left side, but instead added a small pocket – Blue Check – which you are able to include your receipts etc.  In the next couple of days, I will do a Tutorial for the cover & instructions relating to the technique I’ve used.
I am going to have to return this set to Jenny this week or she will be thinking she didn’t purchase this set.

# 2 4 the Day….

I’ve been playing with my friend’s Jenny’s stamp set – AGAIN! I love this set, but don’t own it as yet! The possibilities are endless. I’ve cut out the flowers & placed 2 of them on dimensionals so that they sit up a little.

Birthday Card…

I almost forgot to post the matching card.  I did this to match in with the place cards, and as usual had no idea what I was going to do, except I had the colours in my hand ready to go.

Supplies –
Cardstock – Whisper White, Basic Black
DSP – Urban Oasis
Punches – Oval, Scallop Oval
Stamp Set – Oval All
Accessories – Pearl from Pretties Kit, Snail Glue, Stampin Emboss – White, StazOn – Black, Cuttlebug

You are not able to see, but I embossed the same flower on the envelope – black on black.  It come up really lovely as it was just suttle & didn’t stand out
Until tmw – Have a great day!

PS  Have I mentioned how I love these new DSP’s…


I can post this now!
This is one of the place cards I made for Robyn the other day for her Birthday Dinner.  I kept it to the Black & White as I think tese colours are very elegant, classt & fresh.  I decided to make them very girlish, but not over the top, so using the Stamp Set – Fifth Avenue – stamped the flower in the left hand corner and then embossed.  They turned out really lovely & was really pleased with the outcome.

As I’ve never used this stamp set previously, I had to borrow from Jenny – Thanks – and boy am I giving it a good ol’ workout!  It is a really plain, but a very soft and lovely set.

Will post a couple more of this set when I have finished them.
Have a great day!
