Above are the new In Colours - Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig. My favourite is Berry Burst with Lemon Lime Twist a close second.
Which is your favourite?
The Daisy Delight Bundle has proved so popular that it is now not orderable until the week of July 3rd! This card was cased from Ann's Happy Stampers. She stamped her daisy on to Vellum and embossed it in white. It gave me a good opportunity to use up some scraps of the new In Colour DSP Stack.
The little boxes were a design that I was sent from ChicnScratch as I have signed up to her email list.
I used the Label Me Pretty Bundle which includes the Label Punch and matching stamps.
The last card is my own design and colour combo. I do love Berry Burst and those new Gold Faceted Gems which are now on back order!
Sheltering Tree is a very popular Stamp Set and it has some great sentiments.
It has been good to get it out again to prepare for a Class.
I used the smooshing technique to make the second card which was inspired by Darla Watson.
This could be also used for a man's birthday card or a sympathy card.
Thanks got to Amanda Bates from the Craft Spa for the tutorial for the next card.
I used the blossoms stamp from the set to stamp the background.
Sadly the Baker's Box Die has been retired but some of my ladies have it and I love it so I got it out again!
This was one of the Stamp Sets that I showcased at my Catalogue Launch events.
There are lots of great sentiments, flowers, leaves and 2 balloons in the Stamp Set and the matching die is awesome! You could just use the "Happy" or "Birthday" and stamp the rest of the sentiment.
The first card uses all of the new In Colours which I love.
One of my ladies made the second card at one of my events using Tranquil Tide for the Die Cut.
I cut out two Happy Birthdays in the next card so that the darker one would make the Powder Pink one stand out.
The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set cut out with the matching punch - both now sadly retired :(
You can see the balloon stamps in this card which match the Balloon Bouquet Punch.
The last card was cased from the Demonstrator Web Site where we are given numerous samples to use in our classes. The Die looks great cut out of Gold, Silver, Copper or Glitter Cardstock.

I have enjoyed playing with the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set and matching Celebration Duo Embossing Folders.
My son and daughter in law have moved house today so the sentiment Celebrate New Beginnings was just right for a new home card for them.
I chose Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral as the main colours and used the Watercolour Wings Stamp Set.
Above is a close up of one of the cards.
Next is a Happy New Baby Card. This one will be for a girl but I could easily do another in pink.
I cased a You Tube Video for the next Card. I used the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and added some tiny gold stars punched with the Sprinkles Punch out of Gold Glimmer Cardstock.
The last card is cased from Andrea Walford who has done an excellent You Tube Video to demonstrate a technique for using Watercolour Paper and an Aquapainter or a Paintbrush.
This was the card that sold me the stamp set. It is a very useful set for quick and easy cards in an combination of colours.
