My New Stamps

My lovely friend Mynnette and I recently did a stamp swap - I ordered some stamps from the UK Stampin' Up catalogue and instead of keeping them for myself I re-packaged them and posted them off to Mynnette in the USA. She in turn ordered me some stamps from her catalogue and sent them over to me - and they've arrived!!
Now it would have been an insult to Mynnette if I hadn't immediately played with them and so I made a card.
I had the sketch in mind that's this week's Less is More challenge - however I think I've got my proportions wrong 'cos I didn't read the rules correctly. So even if I'm not entering the challenge I shall show you the card.


This set is called Fabulous Florets and I have stamped the stem in old Olive and the flower in Melon Mambo. The flower has been stamped separately, cut out and attached with 3D foam pads. There is a frame embossed around it although that's a little difficult to see in the photo.
I also took the time to decorate the inside too - take a look


I shall have to do another card for Less is More hee hee - see you soon - Jacqueline xx

  2. Okay, dear, this is GORGEOUS!!! The bright colors of the flower and stem on the white are absolutely phenomenal! I haven't received my package yet, but I know things are a bit crazy this side because our postal service is in a bind financially. Will let you know ASAP when I get them! :)
