When it comes to saying thank you nothing says it better than a handmade card and of course Stampin' Up! have bundles of products that make it so easy for doing just that!
Keeping it simple, I have used just 4 colours to create a monochrome style look.
Very Vanilla cardstock
Pink Pirouette cardstock and colouring
Basic Black cardstock, stamping and doodling
Silver cardstock and rhinestone jewels
This card measures 4, 1/8" wide by 5, 1/2" tall.
The Basic Black mat layer measures 4" x 5, 5/8"
The Very Vanilla mat layer on the front and inside the card measures 3, 7/8" x 5, 3/4"
I have used the new Stampin' Blends to add colour to the flowers. Rather than colouring in neatly, I have just added a wash of colour and some darker colour for the flower centres. Sometimes colouring outside the lines it's okay, it just depends on the look that you want to achieve.
Although this card looks quite flat I have added some dimension by stamping a separate flower, cutting it out with scissors and attaching with a foam pad. The leaf attached underneath is cut using the new 'Leaf Punch' and although it isn't clear in the photo I have used Silver Foil Card to add some shine.
To add some sparkle I have added some rhinestone jewels to the centre of the attached flower and some others at random in the Vanilla space.
The line around the edges of the card is drawn freestyle with a Basic Black Stampin' Marker and I think it lift's the image off the page better than keeping it plain.
To finish off this project I have stamped and coloured a flower inside the card and also on the envelope.
The 'I am Thankful For You' sentiment comes from the 'Painted Harvest' stamp set and the flower comes from the new 'Colour Me Happy' stamp set.
So here we are...the final of the 3 card that we made at this month's card class all about Beauty on the Inside! It's always nice to make a really lovely card with just the front decorated but sometimes its nice to surprise your recipient with a little decoration on the inside!
This is my favourite of the 3 that we made....just saying!
Apart from the gorgeous colours on this card (Night of Navy and Daffodil Deilight) I have used the new Daisy Delight stamp set and matching Daisy Punch which is sold out across the whole of Stampin' Up! right now which just shows how much people are loving this set!
The papers come from the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper set and this is the one that jumped out at me first...and I found it really hard to cut (ha!) The sentiment comes from the Big on Birthdays stamp set and is such a nice size to use! I added the daisy's for that extra something!
And for the Beauty on the Inside...
So within this card, I have added an extra fold out panel with a window sheet used underneath the circle apperture and added another daisy as the centre piece. It doesn't fold well but the inside really is so pretty! It definitely looks more complicated than it was to put this one together but I think its quite effective! You could add anything to the centre...maybe for a christmas card, a christmas tree or a snowflake?! (Yes I'm starting to think about Christmas!)
These are the products that I used to make this card...
Today I'm sharing with you the card that I made to give my wonderful Mum for Mother's Day.
I made this card a good few weeks ago as I've been trying to be more organised with making my cards in advance.
I saw this card fold design on Pinterest and I was pleasantly surprised at how straight forward it was to make!
One of the things that I love most about this card is that the main feature is hidden inside!
I used the following products to make this card
Blushing Bride & Whisper White carsdstock
Pop of Pink DSP
Large Letters Stamps & Framelits
Gold Foil Sheets
Blossom Builder Punch & Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set
Succulent Garden 3/8" Ribbon Combo pack
Crazy for You Stamp Set (Happy Mother's Day)
Thanks for reading, will post again soon!
This months' project class was based around the Succulents Bundle that is one of the new products available in the Spring/Summer seasonal catalogue.
This set jumped out of the catalogue at me as it screams Spring and who doesn't love spring?!!
For this class I wanted to make something more than a card as the large flower dies make the most beautiful 3D flowers....and this is what they made!
I picked the flower pots up from Wilkinsons and used some Sisal that I purchased from Hobbycraft and ordinary dressmaker pins with a pearl top.

It's been a very busy summer here for me, and I can't believe how quickly time has passed! I have had a wonderful summer full of days out, catching up with friends and family, celebrating birthdays (including mine!) and even a holiday to North Devon/Cornwall! Sadly I didn't achieve much crafting and my blog has become rather neglected!
Fingers crossed that now we are back into routine of school being back I will be able to find some time to craft!
Over the last 2 weeks I have held my regular monthly card class and repeat session so I am excited to share with you what we made....
This month I focussed on using the Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars Framelits bundle which is simply gorgeous and the options are endless from jars of flowers, wasps, fireflies, fish, paint pots, and anything else that you can fit in them!
This bundle really is excellent value for money - there are 37 stamps in the set and 17 framelits! It is proving to be one of our best sellers since the launch of this catalogue in June and you will see Pinterest flooded with ideas of how to make stunning projects and cards with this set.

I originally saw this card fold on Pinterest but the layout and the colour combination are all from my little brain....
The card base is made from a piece of A4 card scored along the long edge at 6" & 8". I have then cut the card at 5" wide, and abother strip of 1.5" wide.
I have layered the card using Flirty Flamingo cardstock and Whisper White which I have embossed using the Brick Wall embossing folder.
I have added some Glossy Accents to the water in the jam jar to give a wet-like finish.
Thanks for looking! Feel free to let me know your thoughts!
