Snowfall thinlits...

Yesterday's card was tall and showed lots of stamping today's card is is short and shows just a little stamping  ....But both are equally colourful and beautiful to me!!! 😁
Die cutting just 2 snowflakes made this simple card sing for me so I just stamped a small simple sentiment to finish it off. A real no fuss card.

Sketch 5....

Why is it I can never seem to get a photo of shimmer on my projects? If only you could see the way today's card shimmer and sparkles!!! The white embossed background is absolutely stunning in real life I promise!! The non traditional colour combo of soft sea foam, highland Heather and sparkly white just worked so well for me . I hope you think so too 😊

Sketch 4....

Does the coming of winter make you think of warm snuggly tartan blankets??? This paper sure does fit the bill so I once again let the paper shine 😊. The image and the sentiment just reinforce the idea of cosy for me.

Mango Melody - Day 5 

My last card this week is of course a Christmas Card.
We have so many classes and groups over the next few months that it's Christmas all the way!

Anyway, I used the lovely stamps from the Christmas Traditions Punch Box set.
It is at the very front inside cover of the Seasonal Catalogue.

It comes in a gorgeous Red tin box with 2 Stampin' Spots in, Real Red and Call Me Clover.
It also has the coordinating punch and a Stampin' Clear block.
6 lovely messages in one place. Perfect.

This card is White on White but I edged the card through the Mango Melody ink pad to 
give the yellowy tinge to it.

Another very simple card to finish off the week.
I hope you have found some inspiration for your projects this week.
Cary will be returning on Monday with some more of her lovely creations,
Thank you for joining me this week.

Mango Melody - Day 4 

Today's card took a little longer but is still a very easy card.
I used Mango Melody, Pear Pizazz and Whisper White cardstock and ink.

This time I used Healing Hugs stamp set.
I stamped 3 of the flowers on the Whisper White card mat.
Then another 3 flowers which I fussy cut out.

I stamped several of the leaves and fussy cut  
and placed them around the flowers.

The message above and below says it all and is also in the stamp set.

I love the messages in this set.

Mango Melody - Day 3 

This one is another very simple card. Yes, I know that I often say that but it's so very true.
It IS a very quick and simple card.

This is the first card that I've made with the Flourish Filigree stamp set.

I used Blackberry Bliss for the card base, Mango Melody for the stamping and the
1st mat and Whisper White card for the top mat.

The stamp for the Happy Christmas Wishes is in the same set and was punched out 
perfectly with the Pretty Label Punch.

I punched out 2 more with the punch and Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

Mango Melody - Day 2

Today's card is another simple one.
Using Floral Statements stamp set, I stamped the HELLO in Basic Gray ink.


Using a water brush, I coloured the flowers and leaves in with Mango Melody and Pear Pizazz.

I love the embossing folder Layering leaves so I used that to add a little texture
to the Whisper White mat.

I matted the white onto a piece of the Mango Melody then onto the Whisper White card base.

A simple message from the same stamp set and this one is finished.
