Celebrate - Band Together

I absolutely love the great detail on the Detailed Band Dies.  They just make your card look so elegant.  These dies coordinate with the Band Together stamp set and teh images fit into the many different shapes in the bands.

Somewhere I saw a card similar to the one I made for one of my In the Mail classes recently.  I have to admit I used a retired embossing folder, but love the look of it and have decided to hang onto it for a while longer!

Here is the card:

The colour combination is also a favourite and you can certainly change up the base colours to your own individual style.

Playful Pets - Cat

Being an animal lover, especially dogs, I knew that I had to have the Playful Pets Suite!

I have a number of friends that love cats so I decided that a cat card would really interest them.  I found something similar on the internet but cannot find it now to give credit to the original post.


I used the New In Colour Cinnamon Cider for my card base and let the Playful Pets DSP determine the other colours for the card.  I coloured the cat using the new Stampin' Blends in Cinnamon Cider.
The little mouse is coloured with the Smokey Slate Stampin' Blends.  Both of these images were fussy cut with my snips.

ICS Blog Hop - Jar of Flowers Bundle




Hello and Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share blog hop for July. 

This month our theme is "A Favourite Bundle from the new Annual Catalogue".  
Hard to choose a favourite as there are so many that I really like.  I chose to share a card with you using the Jar of Flowers Bundle which is part of the Flowers for Every Season Suite.

This is my card:



I coloured my sunflowers with my Stampin'Blends and made all 3 a different combination of colour.  The sunflower on the left is Mango Melody (both Light and Dark), the middle one near the top is
 So Saffron (both Light and Dark), and the the one on the right is Dark Mango Melody and Light Pumpkin Pie.  The centres are coloured with the Dark Crumb Cake Stampin' Blend.

All my supplies are listed below.

Follow along with Janey!  She always has a great project idea for you.
