Sadly we lost this stamp set, Dapper Dad, when it went out with the last catalogue but I know many of you have the set so I thought you might like to see this card. The "Father" greeting is from Amazing Family which does appear in the current catalogue.
I made it at a team training run by Amanda Fowler, we used rich razzleberry and an embossing folder for the background and cut out the marina mist shoes.

This has to be one of my favouritest ever cards, we made it recently at Make, Do and Send Card club. It's not my own design, I confess I CAS'ed it completely.
Take a sheet of vellum cardstock and run it, together with an embossing folder, through the Big Shot. Attach the vellum along one edge to your base card, you can cover the glue with ribbon. Then we added some butterflies made from Designer series paper using the Beautiful Wings embosslits and finished off with a touch of bling by adding a rhinestone.

Just a quick post from me today and it's back to the flowers! This image was coloured with marker pens so that I could get more than one colour on the image. Then the flower was stamped again and 3d mounted to give some dimension.

Something a little less bright and flowery today and a card that could maybe be sent to one of the men in your life. It could certainly be brightened up just by using a different colour but here I have used the combination of Crumb Cake and Early Espresso with Very Vanilla as a base.
I used the circle punch to highlight images from Collage Curios which were them 3d mounted onto panels of designer series paper, a wood grain embossed panel and panels of contrasting colour. A bow of seam binding ribbon and a Happy Birthday sentiment and away you go!

You will find a lot of cards using the Swallowtail stamp and the emboss resist technique, the stamp was just made for it!
The butterfly was stamped with versamark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. The clever bit comes when you add the ink, the colours are added using a sponge and blended together. The ink will not colour over the top of the embossing so you end up with a beautiful colourful background and a white butterfly.

I'm loving this new stamp set with it's matching embossing folder, Wildflower Meadow is just great. Here it is with another new colour Soft Sky, this time teamed with Coastal Cabana. The sentiment is another new set called Label Love and has it's own coordinating punch, the artisan label punch. Me thinks I'm going to be using that one a lot too :)

Here is another from the card folder and this one is just bursting with new products!
Again it shows off two new colours, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana, I think this combination will become a new favourite of mine. The stamp set is Mosaic Madness, it has a coordinating Modern Mosaic embossing folder and a matching mosaic Punch. There is also a new designer series paper pack called Quatrefancy which works wonderfully well with the suite of products.

Isn't this pretty? We made this at a team training event recently, it was designed by Amanda Fowler. It is so simple to make and of course the images could be altered to suit any occasion.
This is the inside showing the pocket which holds the cards. Would you like to see the cards we made to go inside? I'll show them tomorrow :)
