Birthday Blossoms

Hi there and welcome back to my blog today. I'm still catching up with projects to share with you, this one was from my Stamp a Stack in May. It was inspired by a card my team member Allie made at a Social Stamping event we had in May.

The predominant colour on this project is Sweet Sugarplum and we found out yesterday that the Sweet Sugarplum ink pad has been the top selling item from the new catalogue, out of everything in the catalogue! I find that really interesting, do you?
I still go back to the Birthday Blossoms stamps time and again as they are so easy to use and have the co-ordinating punch which makes it so easy to create something quickly.
 I must admit that I keep forgetting about embossing backgrounds and am trying to make more effort to use my folders more, just adds a great texture to a background.
 I will be closing my current Code Club order on Saturday morning so if you would like to get a freebie in August please don't miss out. This also applies to local customers who place any orders over £25 before Saturday.
Sunday is the last day to earn your Bonus Days coupons to spend in August!

See you tomorrow

Affectionately Yours Suite

Good Morning. I had a little day off from blogging yesterday. It was my boys first day of the school holidays so we took things a little easier yesterday and enjoyed a slower paced day! Today I am back to normal with my Coffee and Card this morning and my Bring Your Own Project tonight.

Today I am sharing a card from AGES ago that I never shared with you. We made this at my Stamp a Stack just before I went away on the cruise. I LOVE the new copper embossing powder which I have used on the outline of the flower, once I had stamped with Versamark. 
I love the Affectionately Yours suite and the papers and Washi Tape are part of the suite. You will see on the final photo that the Washi Tape is really "coppery", if you know what I mean. 
 The stamps I have used are not from the suite, they are part of the Garden in Bloom stamp set that was a carry over from last year, which I still love.
 Hope you like todays make and I will be back tomorrow with something else to share.

Silver Tree

Yesterday I shared a card with the upcoming Thoughtful Branches bundle and today I am back with another one that I made for one of my lovely team members who recently promoted to Silver. Huge well done Sam, so proud of you.
Once I got creating yesterdays projects I just knew I had to re-create using Silver embossing powder and the effect didn't disappoint.
 As you can see on the photo below the silver does look really lovely on the tree. 

 If you would like to get your hands on the Thoughtful Branches bundle then its available from 2nd August and you could get some money off it by earning coupons during the rest of July.
