All Abloom with Hope

Posted on

Have you checked out the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set yet on page 240? It is fabulous with so many possibilities. Here are just three cards I made using this set this afternoon.

Bloom with Hope - All Abloom - JIF

I’ve promised myself that next week I will begin looking at my 12×12 DSP’s and give my DSP stacks a rest but when one scrapbooks one is hesitant in cutting into a big sheet, ouch! And as you may have noticed with the flower above, I still have a love/hate relationship going on with the Blendabilities, lol! 🙂

Bloom with Hope - Sympathy - JIF

For the next card I’ve used the leaf stamp to create a background, then kept the flower stamp rather plain that I adhered onto it. This image I stamped twice, colored with the Blendabilities then fussy-cut the two open flowers. Before adhering these flowers I gently shaped the petals up to give it a little more depth.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Posted on

It’s taken me awhile, and I admit in Australia I wasn’t really a big fan given its commercialism hence it was a little hit and miss with me, whereas here in Canada I love how even the children share Valentine’s at school. This is what Miss Ten spent the long week-end making to take in today. How cute are these? The one with the rose is for the teacher!

HVD - Tic Tacs for Classmates

That Scalloped Tag Topper Punch REALLY made these Valentine’s gifts so VERY quick and easy knowing that all that was need was a two-inch strip at the desired length. Having the hole as such being punched at the same time as the scallop was definitely a bonus with the stamping done prior to wrapping obviously in Raspberry Ripple Classic Ink with a stamp from the Delightful Dozen Stamp Set!

HVD - Tic Tac Sleeves

What’s inside each of these little bags you wonder? Well, whilst I was going through Frankfurt duty-free last month, I came across miniature Tic Tacs and immediately thought of Valentine’s Day. Seriously, who doesn’t want minty fresh breath on Valentine’s Day, lol! 🙂 I’ve placed a quarter beside them to give you an idea of just how tiny they are. I think from memory they hold only EIGHT tic tacs – cool huh?!

So, Happy Valentine’s Day to you and hope you have a wonderful time however you choose to celebrate!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
