Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Tulip-tastic

For last week’s Card & Cuppa session, I designed this tulip-tastic project. It was deliberately sentiment-free to allow it to be sent as a pick-me-up to someone who is self-isolating or social distancing . I’ve used Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove for some brighter Spring colours. I’m going to miss these In Colors when they

Breathtaking Bouquet with Stampin’ Blends

Have you skipped over the Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp in the new Mini Catalogue? I know I did to begin with, but each time I flipped through, something about it drew me in. Well, it arrived last week and I’m pleased it ‘accidentally’ fell into my shopping basket. As you know, I’m a big fan
