Happy Monday!!

Hello Everyone, Happy Monday!!

I wanted to show you a couple of cards which I shared on my Instagram last week.

This first card features the Forever Blossoms stamp set from our new mini catalogue. It's a simple layout which really allows the water coloured image to shine. I've coloured the large flower image  from the stamp set with Blackberry Bliss for the flowers and Pretty Peacock for the leaves. I layered a piece of the Noble Peacock DSP behind the main image, and finished off with a simple Hello sentiment and some ribbon and sequins.

The Forever Blossoms stamp set is just gorgeous and works well with which ever colouring medium you prefer - it's available in my online shop now!

The second card is a very simple yet effective layout and something different than your usual standard folding card. It was inspired by the wonderful Dena Rekow from the US. This style of layout is called a pocket card and can be created using different methods. The method I have used is simply to take a 10cm x 9.5cm square piece of DSP, cut it on the diagonal from corner to corner, and glue the two triangular pieces down as you see in the photo using some liquid glue just on the outer edges. Then simply create your desired size insert to slide into the pocket.

The DSP used here is the absolutely stunning Perennial Essence DSP and finished off with the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive Reversible Ribbon - both available in my online store.

If you'd like to see me demonstrate the pocket card via a YouTube video tutorial let me know in the comments, as I know it is often easier to see how the layout works than to follow the written directions.

Once again, thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a smashing week!
