Thoughtful Journey Sympathy


Sympathy cards can be tricky to make ...you need to strike the balance between being not too somber, but not too cheerful either. I think this image from the Thoughtful Journey DSP is just perfect. 

My base card is the new Basic Beige cardstock. It works really well with the colours in this paper and is softer than a stark white. I think I'll be using it a lot! It reminds me a bit of the old Sahara Sand.

I've already used the sentiments from the new Unbounded Love stamp set a lot. They're a great size and a lovely font. I recommend getting the bundle - the dies co-ordinate with all the words, but they'll also work with lots of other sets you already own.

I've kept the embellishment on this card to a minimum - just some Linen Thread and a few Iridescent Foil Gems.

Country Lace Cards Set

Here is my set of three cards that I made using the Country Woods Suite. To make these cards I used the Country Flowers stamp set, along with the Country Lace DSP, and also the Spotlight on Nature Dies.

You'll definitely be seeing a lot more of this stamp set and also this beautiful paper!

Country Flowers Sympathy


Here is my third Country Flowers card. With this stamp set, you can combine the stamped images in lots of different ways. Here I used the bucket, flowers and stool.

This was a fun image to colour in. I used some Country Lace DSP for my background elements, and used that to base my colour scheme on. I coloured the image using Blends in Gray Granite, Misty Moonlight and Balmy Blue. 

Thanks for stopping by!

May Blog Hop


Welcome to another Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! This month we have a Sketch Challenge. You can make the complete circuit and see all the gorgeous creations by following the links at the end of each post.

I've used the Country Lace Designer Series Paper for this sketch:


This is such beautiful paper. It's part of the Country Woods Suite. I love the colours and the subtlety of the patterns. For the focal part of this card, I used the Spotlight on Nature Dies. I cut the circle in half and off-set the two halves. The sentiment (from the Sentimental Park stamp set) covers the gap. I used a few die-cut flowers from the Country Flowers Dies as embellishment, and popped an Iridescent Pearl in the centre of each one.

This was a fun card to make!

Well, that’s all from me. Click on the button below to move to the next stop:

Country Flowers


Oh my goodness! Do you ever buy a stamp set on a bit of a whim and then absolutely fall in love with it? Well, the Country Flowers Bundle was that for me.

I'm a sucker for a teapot (both real and stamped!), and I also love a set that provides the opportunity to colour in, so this one made its way into my shopping cart. For this card, I paired it with Country Lace DSP, and used that to base my colour scheme on. I coloured the image using Blends in Smoky Slate, Misty Moonlight and Boho Blue. 

I am also loving the Spotlight on Nature dies - circles in lots of sizes with pretty detailed borders. These are getting quite a workout!

I'll be back with another card soon!

Better Bundled

Have you checked out all the new bundles in the new Catalogue? They start on pages 34-55 with the Suites and then continue on pages 57-73. Bundles are awesome - not only are they 10% off the regular price, but they make for such easy crafting, giving you stamps and die-cut pieces that all work effortlessly together.

What bundles have you got your eye on?

Mediterranean Blooms Set


Here are my set of three Mediterranean Blooms cards. On all three I've used the Mediterranean Blooms DSP, along with the Simply Said stamp set and the Spotlight on Nature dies. I had lots of fun making these and they came together really quickly.

Here's a closer look at at the whole Suite:
