{Quick and Easy cards using One Sheet Wonder Technique}

One of the best selling and dearly loved stamp sets for a number of years is Lovely as A Tree.  Occasionally I have heard people bemoan that there hasn't been a die to cut the trees out.  Well in this years catalogue I was so excited to see a NEW stamp set with trees in, and much more, and with dies!  It's called Rooted in Nature, and is a HUGE set.  Perfect for beginner stampers as it has so much in it.


Here is a set of four cards that took less than 20 minutes to make from start to finish.  They are simply stamped and ready to put sentiments on as I need them.  They also fulfill the gap in most paper crafter's card collection - the masculine card!



Here is a video with the speeded up process.

{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Abstract Impressions}

Hi there, and thank you for popping over for the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop, please have a look at the other blogs to get more inspiration for the gorgeous 
Garden Impressions Suite.



The suite contains lots of yummy products including this bundle and beautiful papers.



The colour combinations used in these papers are so inspirational.
Here I've created this trio of cards that can be used for all sorts of occasions.







Did you spot the new pink metallic thread? I love the stuff, and am so pleased that there are over 45 metres on a reel.

Here is the video tutorial.


While I was playing with the papers I made this mini album.  I went for a vintage feel by sponging some Early Espresso ink onto the edges.


Thanks for popping by, do have a look at what the other participants have created.

{One Sheet Wonder - Pop of Petals}

I am a complete sucker for a floral set.  Even one that I initially thought wasn't the prettiest flower I had ever seen.  However... like all stamp sets, until you ink it up in your favourite colours it's so hard to judge.  Then I got playing with all those lovely foliage pieces... oh my! Its adorable, and I've only just started, can't wait to see how it fits in with other stamp sets.

The detail on the stamps are stunning, teamed with our quality inks and fine paper the result are so professional.


For now, as a little introduction here is a one sheet wonder I have stamped up.


I have used some new colours
Highland Heather, Soft Sea Foam and Pineapple Punch - aren't they zingy and fresh?




Enjoy the video!
