Irresistibly Floral

Well that weekend went fast so welcome to another Monday!

My weekend was spent in Canberra with some dear friends and on the Saturday my dear friend Ann Craig held a Card Buffet to help raise funds (and cards) for Ronald McDonald House Charities.

I made a couple using the gorgeous Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper …


This was my first one.  All the papers are embossed with different designs so it’s just a matter of spongeing your chosen colour – I used Bermuda Bay for this one – then decorating it as you like – you could add just a ribbon and simple sentiment however I chose to do a tag greeting and embellished it with gorgeous flower cut outs using the Flourish Thinlits.


This one uses one of the other patterns from the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Papers and sponged with Blackberry Bliss. Now I know Blackberry Bliss is retired but you could use Rich Razzleberry for the same colour tones.  I sponged all over lightly then added more colour to the centre of random flowers.

How well does that diecut from the May Flowers Thinlits go with that design?  That’s one of the best thing about Stampin’ Up! – their products are designed to coordinate with each other.

It was all set up so we could choose what cards we wanted to make and take the supplies to make it, sit and create that card and then return the supplies and create another card from the ‘buffet’.

I had such a wonderful time creating in Ann’s Studio and meeting her lovely customers.  I was so impressed I’m going to run my own Card Buffet for World Cardmaking Day – well World Card Making Weekend!  It’s on our October Long Weekend so will hold the Buffet on Sunday and Monday – here are the details …
