No, not the “Falling Flowers” Bundle (although it won’t be available as a Bundle in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue), but the gorgeous “Irresistibly Floral Special” DSP. Although I haven’t used it much, each time I have, I ask myself “Why not?”
For my card today I actually cased it from one I saw on Pinterest sometime ago & thought it such a gorgeous card showcasing both the DSP & the coordinating Bundle. I have changed it a little, as you tend to do. Thank you so much for your inspiration.
The sentiment I used is from the “Dragonfly Dreams” Stamp Set which is still available from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.
In fact, we created this card in our class “Cards @ Toogoom” last Friday morning. If you are around the area, why not pop in for a fun morning. Everything is supplied for you.

Today is one of the cards I created a couple of weeks ago using the “Falling Flowers” Bundle from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue. The bundle includes the Stamp Set & the matching “May Flowers” Framelits.
It is now on its way to Amber, one of my nieces who celebrate their 30th birthday this week. Crikey, where does the time go? I can see them as tiny little babies!
I actually did this for a challenge & now as I didn’t know what one it was, I missed out on posting it, but thought I would still share with you.

My card today is one I created for the challenge over at Stampin’ Girls Gone Wildlast weekend. I set myself to use the supplies already sitting on my desk as well as create a card for Dannielle who along with Amber (be sure to come back later on to check out her card) celebrate their 30th birthdays.
I will admit I wasn’t too sure how these colours would work, but I’m loving the In Colours on this card – Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder, Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach Inks along with Cucumber Crush, Very Vanilla & Watermelon Wonder Cardstock.
I’ve used the Inks & Blender Pen to add colour to my flowers while at the same time, leaving the leaf bare.
Since the photo was taken, I added another Pearl Basic Jewel to the centre of the Watermelon Wonder Flower as I didn’t see it was missing until I went to post it. Happy to say it was received with delight.

I sat down yesterday & created a heap of birthday cards – April is a busy Birthday month for me & I wanted to be ready for posting today.
My card today is one I created for the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketcheswhich once again I am just getting there before it closes. It will be posted out to a friend this arvo.
I love the “Falling Flowers” Stamp Set along with the coordinating “May Flowers” Framelits so not only did I challenge myself to create with them yesterday but I’m happy to say that I created 3 cards with the Bundle & with what supplies I had sitting on my desk at the time but I will show you them over the next week or so.
A challenge is always a great starting point for inspiration especially if you are stuck for ideas. Be sure to pop on over to FMS & play along or just to see the lovely creations. Thanks again for a great challenge.

It has seemed like forever since my last post, so fingers crossed, I will be posting again as from this week.
I thought I would share with you a card I did for my friend & downline some time ago. Naomi held her very first Workshop way back in early October & it was a huge success. Good on you Naomi. Bring on 2017!
Sorry there is no tutorial for you to print today as the card was rushed off in the mail the day I created it. I am going to try & remember what I did from the photo, so please be kind to me.
I randomy stamped the large image from the “Falling Flowers” Stamp Set onto a piece of Whisper White Card in VersaMark Ink allowing it to dry a little. With a Stamping Sponge, I sponged a piece of Whisper White Card with Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight & Pumpkin Pie Inks before adhering to a panel of Basic Black Card. The piece was layered onto a piece of Whisper White before layering onto the Base Card – Basic Black.
I stamped the Flower Images & the Leaf Images onto scraps of Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured them with my Blender Pen using Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Inks. The were then die cut with the coordinating “May Flowers” Framelits by running through the Big Shot before adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals & Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
From memory I may have even gone over the flowers with the Clear Wink of Stella to give it a lift.
It is a very simple card but I think with the sponged panel it gives it a “WOW” factor.
