Hello and welcome back. 
My card today is a little more for the adventurous crafter. I have embossed and die cut.
The idea was cased from a swap that I received by Lesley Lendon. 
Thank you Lesley.

I have used Very Vanilla and Early Espresso cardstock and Early Espresso Ink Pad as well as the Copper Foil for the gears.
The Geared Up Garage stamp set and coordinating Thinlits is the collection that I used.

For more information on just the stamp set, please click HERE   

The Early Espresso card was Embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder TIEF
I think it gives it a lovely masculine feel to it.

I finished up by adding this lovely messsage.

#Simplestamping Day 3

 Hello. Today's card is of course a very simple stamping card.

I used the gorgeous Dandelion Wishes stamp set for this one.
I love the delicate wispiness of the seed heads. 
For more information, please follow the link HERE


Using So Saffron ink pad, I stamped the images and added a few more little extras
from the stamp set.

I used some Basic Rhinestones covered with Daffodil Delight Blends pen to highlight
them. I think it adds a little pop to the card.

A simple message on the front and inside finishes this one off.

#simplestamping this month from Stampin' Up! is all about LOVE!
 So here is another simply stamped card today as it will be all this week. 

I used the lovely stamp set, Love You To Pieces for this one.
A few simple pieces of puzzle.  
For more information please click HERE


I used Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White cardstock. The ink was 
Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick.

To coordinate this all together, I punched out half of the 1/2" Circle shapes to 
match the jigsaw.

The jigsaw pices were cut out by hand of course as most people who know me, 
know that I like to fussy cut anything.

A simple message and the little cutouts on the inside to finish this one off.

Happy New Year.

Welcome back into the new year and we hope to show you lots of ideas that will inspire you.


My first card for this New Year is of course simple stamping.

Using Falling Flowers from the main catalogue and Meant To Be, one of the new gorgeous stamp sets from the  New Seasonal Catalogue.For more information click HERE

I stamped the flourish in Soft Sea Foam onto Whisper White cardstock. Then using Poppy Parade added a few little hearts on top,

The larger heart was stamped onto a spare piece along with the message then fussy cut out.  
 They were fixed onto the card base using dimensionals to add a little extra dimension.

I finished off by adding a mat inside and another heart and message.
