Spring Mini Launch

Once again, I have to apologise for being a very slack blogger!  I know I promised more photos from the Snow Swirled Christmas event, and I will get to them, I promise 🙂

I have had a very busy week, and had my Spring Mini Launch yesterday afternoon, so I will also share some of the projects we made.  The first one is a card using the beautiful new stamp set called Soft Summer.  This is another of the two step stamps which make it so easy to make gorgeous floral features on cards and scrap pages.  I also made this card up in two different colour combinations so that you can see how easily you can change a few things around and make a totally different look.  I can’t decide which one I like the best, although at the moment I have a slight preference for the yellow one.  Leave me a comment and tell me which is your favourite. 🙂

For some reason, my blog doesn’t seem to like having two photos today, so sorry about the way it has gone a bit wonky, I have tried fixing it but to no avail.  But anyway, you get the idea! 🙂  Happy stamping everyone,

  1. Sorry Chris…I like the Plum one….hee hee hee. This is my ALL time fave set fm the new mini and I am also having lots of fun playing with it. I love the way you have used the felt fusion flowers. They add a wonderful touch.


  2. Both are beautiful, Chris! If forced on the pain of torture, I’d choose the yellow one – probably because it sports the Riding Hood Red taffeta on the So Saffron because of the lovely contrast.


    • No torture here, Lin Mei 🙂 I love that ribbon too, but I am sure that I am not getting the full amount on my reels, they don’t seem to last very long! 🙂 and yes, the ribbon shows up beautifully over the So Saffron.
