• Pretty Flowers For You using Jar of Love

    I love the simplicity and bright cheery colour of this card with pretty flowers made with my new favourite set Jar of Love. While different to the Jar of Love Shaker Card it remains soft and feminine. This time I used Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive and Soft Sky.  The flowers are created using a 2 step stamping method and the light colour was simply the same Watermelon Wonder ink but stamped off first.

A little Googling and I had the answer!

On the day 4 lovely ladies joined me and had a great time, first they enjoyed looking at the samples I’d made using supplies all from the new Annual Catalogue. Do you know I took no photos on the day! I know, how bad is that! Therefore you will have to imagine a table filled with samples, sorry. Next I had a challenge in the form of a catalogue scavenger hunt. I had a series of questions and the guests had to answer them using the new catalogue. It was an open book game but it…
