Hi Bloggers.

I have a two-fer of little cards for you today (and that sentiment is here again!) -

So, to start with on this one, I made my own patterned card. I used a piece of Coconut White Card and stamped some of the flower heads from the Justrite Floral Silhouettes One Stamp Set using Lilac Whisper, Violet Haze and Clear Day Colour Clouds using a Smoothie. I also stamped one of the butterflies from the same set using Soft Cerise Colour Cloud.

I used the largest die in the Justrite A2 Stitched Banners & Rectangles Die Set to make a card blank out of Coconut White Card. I cut the other larger dies in the set, alernating between my patterned card and Coconut White Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Circle of Friends Stamp Set using Watering Can Archival.

Here's your second card -

For this one, I made a card blank out of Coconut White Card using the largest die in the Justrite Four in a Square Die Set. I cut the largest 2 dies together in the set out of Antique Copper Pearl Card to create the window.

I stamped 4 of the smaller circle images from the Justrite Meadow Circles Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed them with CS Copper Kettle Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I cut them all out using the circle dies from the Four in a Square Die Set.

There you go - 2 simple, dinky proper cards!

  17. Good Morning Julia, that first card is so pretty and Ive a feeling each of my 3 girls would love its design, they do go to much on over the top designs but that one is gorgeous. The second is just so classic to. hugs Shirleyxxxx

  18. Morning Julia,
    Two love cards, love the colours on the first one, so girly.

  19. I truly thought you had used a backing paper on the first card. The colours are lovely as are the Justrite stamps. Love the balance the second card creates. The Copper Kettle embossing powder jumps out.... in a good way.

  20. Lovely cards Julia. Have just ordered the two sets of stamps. Was going to when I saw them before on your cards but have done it now. Look forward to using them. Thank you for sharing and your inspiration.

  21. Hello Julia.
    I like everything about the first Card. Your paper is lovely, great stamps and colours, also Stitched Banners is one of my favourite die sets. I think your second also uses great stamps dies and colours. I think it would make a great batch make for any occasion. Thanks for sharing.

    Best wishes
