Secret Garden

T.G.I.F. If you are like me, you are so glad it's Friday! Quite a week with little time to craft. Hopefully this weekend I can catch up and enter a few more challenges. Until then I will leave you with this.....

The recipe :
Secret Garden Stamp set and Framelits
Watercolour Paper
Whisper White card stock
So Saffron card stock
Blender pens and markers in So Saffron, Old Olive, Wisteria Wonder
White Ribbon
Loving Thoughts Stamp set( sentiment)

I embossed the flowers in White before cutting out using the Framelits. The rest is just a little practice at water colouring and you can achieve this look. I love the subtle colours on the flowers. I am anxious to play around more with the Secret Garden set in some vibrant colours next! Enjoy your weekend. Cya soon!

Tags Tags and more Tags .....

Hello! Hope you are having a good start to your week. Sun is shining here so that is ALWAYS a good start!

Today I wanted and needed to make some tags for occasions coming up. I also thought it would be a great way to use up some of my Stampin Up DSP scraps. You know we've got all the new products coming out soon!

Pretty simple and a great way to use all of those leftovers don't you think? I hope you enjoyed these and will come again . Cya soon!

Hello and Happy Friday! So pleased you dropped in to have a look at what I have been up to in the Firefly Studio this week.

Have you ever bought a stamp set and found that you later regretted purchasing it? I have had quite a few of those in my day. This is NOT one of those stamps! I actually overlooked it the first fifty or so odd times looking through the Sale A Bration catalog. I thought to myself "How often could I make use of such a large stamp?". In the end I added it to my order. And boy am I glad I did! I love this stamp and won't ever part with it.

So on to today's card......

 And of course I had to do some stamping on the inside

The recipe is :
Taffeta Ribbon on Perfect Plum
Perfect Plum and Crumb Cake ink pads
Kindness Matters Stamp Set
Swallowtail Stamp
Distressed Dots Stamp
Daydream Medallions Stamp Set
Creative Elements Stamp Set

 I hope you are inspired to try making something yourself today. Cya soon!
