Lots of Hugs

Yes, you guessed it, today I have some more cards that I made using the Hugs From Shelli, Paper Pumpkin kit.
I may seem to be a little obsessed with this kit!
But actually I really just love it, and enjoy the challenge of creating new ideas.

Hugs From Shelli Pink Flowers

I have used half of one of the original card fronts, and layered it over some Shimmer White cardstock which has been embossed using the retiring Petal Pair embossing folder.  And then popped one of the Die cut flowers that came in the kit, over the corner.  That little bit of Old Olive cardstock and ribbon just helps the leaves pop a little.

The next two cards use the same colour combo, of Pool Party and Crumb Cake.

The first uses the Country Floral Embossing Folder in the background, and the second the Tin Tile Embossing Folder – both of them carrying over to the next catalogue.  Yay!!!!
Both of these cards make use of the envelopes from the kit, which I have cut up to create the sentiment layer, and also the patterned papers.
The top card just uses one envelope, and the second card has used one plus the flap off a second.

I have also used the stamp set to create a completely different look….

Hugs From Shelli Yellow Flowers
I have stamped the flower image repeatedly on a piece of white cardstock, using Early Espresso ink, then coloured each flower with Stampin Blends.
The gorgeous little bird is part of a stamp from a new stamp set called Free As A Bird.  It is a beautiful stamp set, part of the Bird Ballad Suite.

I hope there is something there to inspire you to get creative today.
Happy Stamping!

Country Floral

I had heaps of fun over the weekend with some lovely ladies who came to my home for a class, and we made this set of cards.

I wanted to show them how it is possible to use the same items and similar layout and create three very different cards.
The cards feature the gorgeous Country Floral Embossing Folder, which is just so beautiful.
I have combined this with some different patterned papers, the Gingham Gala and also the Garden Impressions.
So pretty.
Happy Stamping!
