Fabulous Florets and Beyond the Garden


Wow, posting three days in a row!! I better be careful I don't do myself an injury hey,lol!
Even more incredible is that I have a set of three cards to share with you today!!

My wonderful sponsor

recently provided me with a little goodie bag of Stampin' Up! products to review.

OOOh I felt like a kid on Christmas morning!!

No sooner did I get my little package home and I had that plastic wrap off the delicious paper and I was lost in that blissful feeling that comes from flipping through a new paper pack and the feel of the smooth stamp blocks in the palm of  your hand, dreaming of all the fabulous creations to come.

You know, you've been there................. standing there eyes closed, paper pack clutched to your chest, vague sensation of something pulling on your shirt tails and the distant voice calling.........Mum........Mum.

Oh snap! Back to!

With the combination of the versatile Fabulous Florets stamp set and pretty Beyond The Garden Designer Paper this trio of cards were created in quick succession.

The colour combination of Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi is fresh and vibrant.

I stamped the flowers and leaves with Wild Wasabi ink and fussy cut them and popped them up with dimentionals.

I love the pretty Wild Wasabi Grosgrain Ribbon and I chose to use it to help tie in the three card layouts.

If you, like me, are a big fan of the beautiful Stampin' Up! stamps and papers and you would like to purchase this lovely set  or view the full range of products available then you can visit
