Again, the photos don’t quite do this card justice. I’ve used Wink of Stella on the leaves which pop out from behind the trees. The Wink of Stella really adds some sheen and sparkle to the card. I’ve also added some 1/8″  Silver Ribbon behind the embellishment. The sentiment comes from Flurry of Wishes and is stamped in one of my new favourite colours, Dapper Denim. The Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is very versatile as you can use… Read more »

Isn’t Flirty Flamingo just a beautiful colour? I’ve teamed it with Pear Pizzazz on the tree canopy by using a Sponge Dauber to add the Flirty Flamingo on the canopy had been inked up with Pear Pizzazz. The grass was a bit short to go all the way across the card, it was easy to ink up a couple of times and stamp again. Being a photopolymer stamp set means it’s very easy to place the stamps exactly where you want… Read more »
