I thought I would share another of my themes for my recent card buffet. Did you enjoy the “Fifth Avenue Floral” theme? This time I have used the new “Great Friend” stamp set from the Spring Mini Catalogue. Don’t forget … you can click on any of the pics for an enlarged image & better detail. This is such a versatile set …
And … aren’t the colours FAB!!! Tempting Turquoise, Pink Pirouette & Kiwi Kiss. A lovely in-colour combo for you to try! This first card is soooo simple … but looks so cute …
I love this stem of leaves stamp … it is so useful!!! This card is just some very simple stamping … and cutting (butterflies). So … easy! The second is almost as simple as the first!!! … 😀
Don’t forget to stamp onto the DSP before you place the main image strip … and I found it heaps easier to use my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the phrase into the stamped frame image but you can just “eye-ball” this if you don’t have a S-A-M-J!
This last card is a little more work … and did take a little time to cut out the turquoise frames & butterflies. It is not hard … just a little time consuming … but well worth the effort! The two butterflies are layered slightly off set from each other … and have been stamped using the “rock & roll” technique. (Ink butterfly stamp with Kiwi Kiss ink … then roll just the edges of the stamp image around on the Turquoise ink … and then stamp on card.) Such a lovely effect … and even prettier with the Dazzling Diamonds added. This was a popular design … but did take a little time to do.
So … again … a list of supplies is shown below. (Punches & tools are not listed) This is a super set … so many ways to use it … and soooo reasonably priced!!!

CLICK ON THE TABLE … and you will see an enlarged image that is easy to read. The “bold” sizes for the card is the standard sizes that I had precut … and below each is listed the pieces that need to be cut from this “standard” piece of card. (I hope that makes sense!)
