Good morning! It's Thursday and that means something speedy in my weekly series of three-minute cards! I 'm very excited about the cards I'm showing you today because they use what I am beginning to realise could be my favourite Stampin' Up stamp set of all time! (and that is a very big claim indeed...) Come and see what I've been up to:
Yes, I've been using my new French Foliage set - in fact it hasn't been back in its box since it arrived! This is a very quick way to make a card: mask off a rectangle, sponge inside and stamp over the top. Add a sentiment and you have a card - and one that is easy to post too!
Here's a close-up of the stamping. I've made little masks for my leaves, which I'm keeping in the stamp box for future use, and I used them here so that the text would flow round them. I've tried these stamps in shades of green and they look fabulous, but I thought it would be fun to be a little inventive with colour today! So for this one I used Marina Mist and Not Quite Navy with a touch of Early Espresso but, being me, I couldn't just leave it there...
... so here's another one, this time stamped in delicious shades of Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum!
Supplies you need to make the blue card:
Stamps: French Foliage, Thank You Kindly
Ink: Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy
Card stock: Whisper White
You can buy any of these supplies from me and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593.
While I was typing this, a little green leaf-like creature landed on my keyboard causing me to leap into the air in quite an athletic way! I'd been tackling the front hedge with my clippers this morning as it was threatening to take over the house, and I must have brought my little friend inside with me. All in all, it's been a pretty leafy day!
I can't help feeling there might be one or two (or eighteen...) more French Foliage cards on the way but please do let me know if you're getting fed up with them! Thank you so much for visiting me today. I'll be back tomorrow if you fancy popping back then.
