Some scrapbooking and some tangerine loveliness from Christine ....
Touched by this ....

Sweet Always, Felt Fusion and Build a Brads ....

Hello lovely ones. Time for some Stampin' Up! cards don't you think? I made these ones earlier in the week, but have had a busy week visiting downlines and welcoming some new team members, so am just getting to post them now.

This one is for someone I know who needs a hug.The paper is from the Holiday Treasures DSP, and the bit on the left is the Pink Pirouettes pints DSP. The name Holiday Treasures suggests Christmas, but I think this gorgeous paper suits any card really. You will be seeing lots more of it from me! The flower is a combination of Felt Fusion, Build a Brad and the Very Vanilla die cut from Blooms Again. The stem and leaf are hand-cut from the Holiday Treasures DSP. The greeting is from the Stampin' Up! level 1 hostess set Best Yet.

These next two are for friends, using the bright and happy Sweet Always Designer Series Papers. This paper matches Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White Stampin' Up! cardstock perfectly.

In this one I have added some 5/8" Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon, and the greeting from Friends 24/7 which is lovely don't you think? The background is from the stamp set Always which matches the Sweet Always DSP as well.

In this one I have added the Chocolate Chip felt flower from Felt Fusion Too, and also a build a brad. I punched one of the small patterns out of the paper using the 1/2" circle punch and this fits the Build a Brad perfectly. The word 'friend' is from Stampin' Up!'s Basic Phrases set and is embossed in white.

Off to deliver some orders to my lovely customers that live close by, and then it's stamping night for myself and 'the girls' tonight so a great day ahead. Hope your day is great as well and these cards have put a smile on your face :) I'd like to leave you with this beautiful quote about happiness:

"Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you."

Hi Claire,

I wasn't 100% sold on the more floral papers in the Holiday Treasures paper pack when I first saw it but now that you've made this card with it I think it looks fantastic! Just goes to show how making an example card and not just showing the pack goes a long way to inspiring people. Gorgeous! Di G


Hi Claire,

Great cards yet again. You truly are an inspiration.

Take Care


Wow gorgeous cards Claire. I've just got the HT DSP and love you I think it has a wide range of appeal. Cheers!
