Simply Stampin' Sketch

It feels like it's been a while since I have blogged - my last few posts were scheduled as I have been away and  now that I am back I am preparing for the Jubilee weekend. I am up to my eyeballs in bunting, fairy cakes and acrylic paint - but more on that story later.

The card I have made to show you today covers a lot: firstly it was made for the Mid-week Motivation for this week's Make My Monday challenge. It also follows the sketch over on this week's Simply Stampin' blog

And finally I had to make a Thank You card as I am making a presentation over the weekend to a lady who is retiring - whew - here is the card

Stamps used: S'U Baby Blossoms and Just Believe
Inks: Old Olive, Blushing Bride and Regal Rose.

I'm off now to paint the Queen's hat! - Jacqueline xx


  1. I loved it on the MMM blog yesterday and I love it here today... these flowers are so beautifully coloured and it's a really clever technique. Good luck with your Jubilee preparations!

  2. Beautiful card with just amazing cutting out on those flowers!

  3. Gorgeous! Lovely to see this stamp set used again! I miss it - it looks so wonderful here! Thanks for joining in the SSC! xx

  4. Oh my word, so soft, pretty, feminine and delicate - but clean and crisp too! What a gorgeous card - looking at it makes me want a cuppa in a bone china teacup! Fab fussy cutting too!

  5. Such a pretty, feminine card Jacqueline! Nice use of embossing to create the frame. I love this stamp set, it was such a shame it was retired. Thanks for playing along with this week's Simply Stampin' Challenge! Kirei x

  6. Sorry I haven't popped by in a while! LOVE this, Jacqueline! SO soft and gorgeous!!! :)

  7. wow, this must have taken you ages, all that cutting, I'm so sad that I didn't get this set last year, but glad to see it used again. A wonderful card that I'm sure anyone would be grateful to receive.
    Thanks for joining us this week at Simply Stampin.
