I'm not in love .....

Well I wasn't ... until I got my mucky mawlers on this stamp set.   I had passed it by and hadn't even noticed it in the new spring/summer catalogue.

Thank goodness one of my teamies brought it with her to our team meeting, and allowed me to have a play with the set. The following samples are all made using the beautiful Birthday Blooms stamp set.  

The first card was made by stamping the image onto white cardstock, then colouring in the image, and then fussy-cutting the whole lot out.  I attached the image to an oversized tag (cut tails into the end) that I stapled to the front of the card.  I stamped and cut out the sentiment, and then tucked it under the flower.  Finally, I added a wink of stella (clear), to give it a sparkle, and finished off by adhering rhinestones.

The second card was made by adding a strip of Blushing Bride cardstock to the front of the card, that had been torn on an angle at the bottom.  I then added a strip of Burlap and a small strip of retired old olive ribbon towards the top of the card over the tag.  I then stamped the image onto a 2 1/2" die-cut circle, coloured it in, added a small bow and some pearls, and then adhered it over the ribbon.  Easy! You can easily make lots of these cards very quickly!  Why not make half a dozen of them, tie a ribbon around,them all, and give them as a gift?

This stamp set is only £17 unmounted - it contains three sentiments and five images, and I really think that this set is a bargain!

All I have done on the above card, is exchange the card layer for a patterned paper layer - It is similar to the card above, but I changed slightly by not colouring it in - so so easy!

On this last card, I have added paper from the Love Blossoms paper stack (£7.25), and I have also used the highly adaptable Timeless Textures stamp set over the stamped flower .... by doing this, I have added texture and colour to the flower.  I finished off with a touch of twine under the sentiment, and tucked under the image.

I love it when you find something that otherwise would have passed you by!
