If you order before the 21st, you will also receive this month’s tutorial which features Spring Themed projects (easily adapted for Mother’s Day)

Pansy Petals Birthday Card

Thank you for joining us for the April Blogging Friends hop. The theme for this hop is “Flowers” The northern hemisphere is moving into warmer weathers and will have flowers in bloom, and in the southern hemisphere we are heading for cooler weather and the flowers on cards that don’t die will be keeping our spirits up.

Pansy Petals is one of the bundles that will be carrying over to the new catalogue, but the DSP will not. One of the fun features of this DSP is that the images on it co-ordinate with the Pansy dies. This is one of the projects that I did for the Bundle Bonus collaboration. If you would like to know more about this, you can find the details here. The card has a surprise inside.

Here is the video that was part of the Bundle Bonus

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope everyone has a fun and creative weekend. Be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has created.

The variety in project ideas will inspire you to create in the comfort of your stamp space. This offer is not limited to a particular month.

Waves Of The Ocean Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for today’s blog hop. We all LOVE new stuff, and today we are showcasing a bundle that is going to be coming in the new catalogue. This is available as a pre-order, and the DSP, foil sheets and gems are for the pre-order only – they won’t be in the catalogue.

My husband and I had a mini break in a little coastal town called Inverloch, which is about 2 hours away. One of the coffee shops had this mural on their wall. As soon as I saw it, I started jumping up and down and saying “that is just like my new wave stamp set”. Of course, the mural is a mirror image of the stamp, but oh well. Inspired by the mural, here is my card:

I used the wave stamp with Mango Melody ink for the tone on tone stamping, and heat embossed the image with white embossing powder onto the Basic Black strip.

Here is a picture of the products included in this pre-order. You can place your order in my on line store by clicking here

Be sure to complete the hop to get lots more inspiration for using this suite. here is the complete hop list:
