I know my blog posts have been few and far between recently, but with the weather starting to warm up ever so slightly here in Canberra, and the sun out a little longer each day, it has been just too hard to resist being out in the sunshine and doing some gardening. However, I have still been spending quite a lot of time in my craft room and getting a lot of stamping done, so I do have some cards and ideas to share with you. But one at a time 🙂
The Fun Flowers Stamp is one of the recently released individual stamps in the Spring Mini Catalogue. I haven’t used it much so far, however here is a card I made a few weeks ago for a colour challenge. The challenge was to use the colours So Saffron, Whisper White and Basic Grey. It is a probably a little difficult to see in the photo, but I have embossed the Fun Flowers image with white embossing powder onto the patterned paper.

I will try to be back in the next couple of days with some more for you, that’s if the sun doesn’t lure me back out of doors 🙂
