Now, if I can just calm down for a minute (!) it's Three Minute Thursday here on my blog, so I have a quick card to show you using Bright Blossoms:

I love how bold and bright these sprigs look when they're coloured as berry branches. This card definitely relies on the stamp-a-majig for quick, accurate placement of images - I have one pretty much attached to me at all times! TIP: I stick a punched label in the middle of my imaging sheet to make it easier to see as I used to lose it all the time!

Sometimes you need a clean and simple sentiment and the For My Family stamp set contains several (happy birthday, merry Christmas and congratulations) as well as every member of the family for personalising your cards. I like the way this one goes nicely with the bold image.

Stamps: Bright Blossoms, For My Family
Ink: Basic Grey
Card stock: Very Vanilla
Other: Gumball Green and Real Red markers, stamp-a-majig

The sprigs in today's card remind me of a gorgeous stencil-style Laura Ashley wallpaper in the room my husband and I used to share when we visited his parents. My in laws had a big ginger cat called Jeeves at that time and I remember once, when I was heavily pregnant with my daughter, Jeeves came and sat on my bump and went off to sleep! I found it very comforting.

See you tomorrow for more crafting fun (and the odd story!)

  6. I bought this set and NEVER used it. (I don't know why - I love pretty much every card I've seen that was made with it!) But this is a fantastic, clever use of it! Love the clean, simple design (surprise! lol!)

  7. Gorgeous card Vicky! Our cat did that to my mum when she was pregnant with my brother! The odd thing was that Chips never sat with mum before the pregnancy or after she had Luke! Gorgeous card very elegant and perfectly CAS! x

  8. I really like the simplicity of the your card, but it is so effective too. I also like the sentiment you have chosen, it goes so well with the image. x x
