Timeless Elegance

Greetings Happy Stampers,

Today I wanted to show you the beautiful Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper  p.143 of the main catalogue.


This paper is gorgeous! And really fun to work with. Especially the two sheets of Roses paper in the set.
I have seen different pictures of people colouring their roses on the paper and decided to give it a try.
It was so easy. All you need is your sponge daubers and your coloured ink pads. I decided to use Blushing Bride for my roses.



Of course after I started I couldn't stop. LOL. So I added a bit of Soft Sky, Mint Macaroon and Daffodil Delight ink pads and before I knew it I had coloured the whole piece in just using my sponge daubers! So quick.
Dazzling Diamonds on the roses added the touch of sparkle. Some gold bakers twine and a butterfly and sentiment and I was done. Pop it onto Blushing Bride matt and Basic Black Card base and Voila!


But wait.....there is more.....

This pretty card needed something extra-special inside. I saw this idea clic…

Time for another card in the box I think!

Greeting Happy Stampers!
I think it may be time to share another card in the box creation with you all. Mine seem to always have a cottage garden theme??? So few flowers blooming in my garden at the moment. Winter is always a bit of drab affair. Though I do notice a few geraniums starting to blossom. Can't wait till August when I have a garden makeover and get it all ready for Spring!

 So once again I have used my all time favourite flowers and butterflies, stamps and punches
Flowershop, Petite Petals, Itty bitty flowers punches, Papillion Potpourri, and leaves from the Retired Secret Garden Framelits. Hardwood Background stamp used to make the wooden fence posts.  Early Expresso, Blushing Bride, Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzaz.  Paper from the last mini Painted Blooms dsp.


I can't go without sharing this one more card with you.
This was made by my son for his girlfriend.
