I have also made a few cards with Easter Blossoms (Summer Mini 1 January - 31 March 2011) which is a beautiful set but I have forgotten to take photos of the cards that I have made before I have given them away, , , So here are a few that I have made on the run. . .
Another set which has been used a fair bit from the Summer Mini is Blessed Mother - unfortunately I don't think that I have used it to make one Mother's Day card LOL! I really love the flowers and they work beautifully with the Stamp 'n Write Markers and Watercolour Crayons. Here are three cards that I made using the same materials:
And of course because birds seem to be so popular at the moment, here are a few cards that I have made using the Aviary set in the Summer Mini:
Here is a set that I adore although it has been discontinued:
I love a number of sets that are current though. Fifth Avenue Floral is amazingly versatile and can be used with any colour scheme. Here are a few favourite examples which incorporate one or more of the stamps:
Upsy Daisy is great for all occasions - birthdays, thank yous, sympathy and thinking of you. Here is a wiper card which I cased from Split Coast Stampers a year ago and continue to make regularly:
And of course we have my favourite set at the moment - Growing Green (see page 78 of the Ideas book & Catalogue- it is available in both wood and clear mount) is such a beautiful set, great for all occasions. I made a bookmark card from the set recently with colours that I don't usually use. I was quite happy with the end product - the bookmark sits inside the card and is perforated so can be removed by the recipient after they receive it (or not perhaps):
Finally I thought that I should upload some masculine cards, they are not that exciting but give you a bit of an idea on colour schemes and suggestions. I am really excited about the a la carte stamps that are being released in the new Autumn Winter Mini that starts on 1 April 2011 but you will have to visit again to see those cards as company policy prevents me from showing you the gorgeous new masculine stamps until they have been released for public viewing. . .
Finally as a bit of a joke to the members of my team I wanted to share some of my Circle Circus creations and put them on notice that there will probably be a Circle Circus challenge for our team training in the next few months. . .
