I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things with The Beans back at school, a new health & fitness regime (more about this in a bit), Uniko open for business again – woohoo! and the usual mum/houeswife life juggle!
One thing I am making sure to do is, making time to be creative and at least make or at least start a card or project every day 🙂
Today I was inspired to dust off Beautiful Blooms II, it certainly has been a while since I used this cute little floral stamp set!
My inspiration for my cards today came from my friend Rebecca, who is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and has a September challenge over on her Facebook Page HERE.
It was so fun to stamp these flowers again and very therapeutic fussy cutting them out! The grid background I have used is an old one from Stampin’ Up! I like it because of its grungy style. The sentiment is from Birthday Sentiments.
The top flower is adhered to the card flat using double sided tape and the middle and lower flower adhered using 1mm thick foam adhesive for a tiny bit of dimension.
And as it is Tuesday, I couldn’t stop at one card! I went on to make this second card.
The layout of my card was loosely based on a card I made previously with this clear stamp set. You can check out previous makes HERE on Pinterest.
The coral flower was stamped first and then I masked it to stamp the leaves and then all masked to stamp the grid pattern. The blue flower is adhered using foam adhesive again and the leaves tucked in at the side.
It’s been a glorious sunny day and the hours have flown by! It’s certainly good to be back in a groove and all being well I will have some NEW products to share soon 😉
That’s all from me today, thanks for stopping by!
