Simply Sketched Poppy

I made this card using one of the paper pads currently on special offer in the Clearance rack section - it has 48 sheets of double-sided 4.5" x 6.5" paper in a lovely range of colours - crumb cake, midnight muse, gumball green, primrose petals, raspberry ripple and summer starfruit - and all for the great price of £2.49.  Here I have used a couple of pieces matched up with very vanilla, crumb cake and midnight muse cardstock.  The stamp is from one of the Hostess sets - Simply Sketched.  I inked the stamp using gumball green and midnight muse Stampin' Write markers, then scribbled a bit of each on an acetate sheet and used the water brush to watercolour the design.

Owl birthday card

I made this card using one of the new thinlits dies and the extra dies that come with it, the owl punch, the oval punch and some of the products from the new spring catalogue.  The colours used are Baked Brown Sugar and Coastal Cabana. I cut the card so that I could have a 'flap' to open with the message stamped inside.  The sentiment on the front is from Simply Sketched hostess set.

Introduction to Stampin' at the Paddocks!

As I have just recently decided to become a SU demonstrator, I thought I would set up a blog where I can show the latest products and ideas.  I am trying to work out how to link up to the products as I go along, so hopefully I'll get it to work OK soon!  Here are some of the cards I have made recently - I will try to look at each of them individually over the next couple of weeks and list the products used.

You will probably have already guessed my favourite colours - but I will try to include some of the many other available colour schemes soon!
