Its the first day of School Holidays here in Sydney, NSW and I sooo enjoyed my sleep in today. Although I do find if I sleep in then I feel tired and lethargic for the day … maybe I need to sleep in again tomorrow to be sure??  One has to research these things just so we can educate others 😉

With a new catalogue comes new stamps and I love remaking favourite styles of cards using new stamps and one of my favourite cards is the Easel Card.  They are a “Squeasy” card … now I’ve educated you on the new ‘Onie’ style of cards being the “Queasy” cards but now here is a new term for you – “Squeasy” which of course means Super Quick and Easy!

I love the Hydrangea in the Because I Care Hostess Stamp Set and couldn’t wait to use it. I had to team it up with En Francais for this elegant card …

Stamps: Because I Care, En Francais
Paper:   Concord Crush, Very Vanilla
Inks:     Crumb Cake, Concord Crush, Jet Black Stazon, Old Olive

I love Hydrangeas and they always remind me of my mum and the numerous plants we had around the house when growing up.

Here are a couple of views of the card ….

These cards are great for any occasion and as you can see you can post them flat and the stopper is there so they can be stood up to display. I’ve just popped a heap of dimensionals under the Concord Crush frame to make it higher and therefore be used as the stopper.

Feel free to contact me for more information on how to make this card or one similar.


  1. Aw go on, sleep in as much as you like, after all, there are many days that you can’t…..and that’s very kind of you to do the research for others too by the way! It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it and it may as well be you.

    The card is great too!

  2. I looked at theis set too Leonie….and passed it by. I have so many other set to colour that never get a gurnsey…seemed wasteful (insert wistful sigh!!)I love your take on this card…i too had a g’ma with mountains of these in her yard. The recollection made me smile!!! I love this card….it’s stunning!!
    As for the “S-I-T” (sleep-in-theory) research away…I am v v envious of ur research grant abilities!!! I sadly feel v v guilty for the rest of the day if I sleep beyond 7am!!! Kids are a-hollerin’…must dash!! Enjoy the hols.
