I wanted to play with my new Enchante papers, French Flair background stamp and Stem Silhouettes stamp set. My trouble is a lot of the time, I can't think where to start with cards. After perusing some blogs, I saw that turning the top corner down to show the other side of the paper was used a lot. Liked that idea. So using a sketch I'd had for ages in my book (think it comes from Bec's page maps??), I started just putting papers, cardstock, stamps and ink together.
Firstly I made With Heartfelt Sympathy. I feel it's turned out really well. I like it anyway. lol
Then by changing the sizes of the different elements I came up with a sketch that's the same but different if you know what I mean.
Happy Birthday was the next one and here I used an idea I saw in the last SU Mini catalogue..stamping the French Flair background straight onto the floral designer paper. Gorgeous. Even though you can't see much, it does add to the background I reckon.
Sending You a Little Something was the last one I made. This one is for my son's Great Grandmother's birthday so wanted the colours to be a bit more muted and soft but still have that touch of choc chip and close to cocoa on the card. Even if I do say so myself, I love all three cards.
