Just like Cookies

I went with an unusual colour combination here - Just Jade, Crushed Curry and Rich Razzleberry. It's from this In Color Combination chart. I must admit that initially I had my doubts, but I really like the retro feel of it!

Do you like my striped background? I made it with one of the stamps in Pattern Play.

I made this card for my lovely hubby. I always know that if I ask him to help me with something, he will do everything he possibly can to do it. On this particular occasion, I was in a tough spot and he dropped everything and went way out of his way to make it better. I'm so lucky to have him! In four days, we'll be celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary. I'd better get cracking and make an extra-special card for that!!

Hydrangea Haven

Hydrangeas are such fun to colour! There's no real lines, and you can be a bit blurry and playful with colours. I used Blends and just kind of scribbled all over with Highland Heather and Balmy Blue (both light and dark), and then I coloured over the whole lot with Purple Posy (light), using it to soften any harsh lines and edges. I used Mossy Meadow and Old Olive for the leaves.

I used the Hydrangea Hill DSP for the background panels and framed everything in elegant black. I also stamped my sentiment in black - it's from the Happy Thoughts stamp set (yes, again!).

The finishing touch was some sparkly black Organdy ribbon, and some Shimmery Crystal Effects on the flower:

Can you see the glossy shimmer? 

Thanks for stopping by!

Seashells in pink

I always think of blues and neutrals for coastal themes, so it was quite refreshing to branch out and do one in pink and yellow! This is Blushing Bride and So Saffron. I've used the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper (gorgeous!!) for the background and I also snipped the seashells from the paper.

I think it's the embellishments that really step this card up - I gently pulled apart some Metallic Mesh to pop behind the main panel and used some Opal Rounds on top. 

The sentiment is from the very versatile Happy Thoughts stamp set in the Mini Catalogue...grab this one while you can because it disappears once the Mini Catalogue ends.

Dandy Wishes

I hope you had a lovely Easter! I spent the weekend up in the Blue Mountains at my Dad's place. It was very relaxing, and the weather was perfect.

I've been playing with the Dandy Garden DSP again - I thought I'd better, since it's only available while stocks last! Thankfully this Garden Wishes stamp set will be carrying forward into our new Annual Catalogue (coming on May 4th). However, it's better to purchase the set now if you want to get the matching dies. The bundle is 10% off in the Mini, and not available at that price in the new Catalogue.

Today's Tiles

Hopefully you've managed to grab some retiring bargains. On this card I've used a retiring colour - the beautiful soft pink of Rococo Rose. I've also used a beautiful retiring stamp set, called Today's Tiles. I love the Moroccan feel of this set.

Retiring Bargains!

Have you had a chance to check out the Last Chance Items? There are always some shocks and surprises. I will really miss the Stitched Shapes Dies - I use these on almost every card I make! Also the Subtle embossing folder and the Classic Label Punch. I'll also miss the batch of Retiring In Colors - particularly Seaside Spray and Pretty Peacock. Make sure you stock up on cardstock and ink refills in your favourites! 

Since there are so many items retiring, I thought it might be helpful if I put together a list of all the bargains. The items listed below are all 60-75% off! You can click on the items to see more detail. If it doesn't appear, most likely it is SOLD OUT, as everything on the list is available only while stocks last!
