Happy New Year all, Jo here and welcome to my first blog post for the year.

Today I have made a sweet card set using two of my favourite Inspired By Stamping stampsets. The first stampset is the “Easter Lily” & second one is the “Hello“, which I have cutup. I know for some of you this may be rather daunting. The OCD side of me really struggled with this concept however I wanted to tailor my gift set as I had a specific friend in mind to give this to.

Ok,so I first cut up this stampset as you can see below. I set aside the sentiments that I wish to use on a separate cardstock.

The sentiments has been heat embossed with white embossing powder on coloured strips of coloured cardstock.

I tapped into my paper stash hoard vault and pulled this beautiful paper collection out. Β I have used the paper to cover the full top folding card front. Β With very vanilla cardstock panels I have die cut with border strip framelits to create interest tot he panels and foam mounted this onto the floral paper.

To add a feminine touch to accompany the type of paper chosen I have used paper doilies which I have placed on carefully with glue dots as I found this type of adhesive was less likely to be seen through the very paper thin doilies.

I have stamped the Lily image on die cut circles and hearts with light blue & strawberry inks. To embellish each card I have used two types of hemp twine natural and bleached. Β I have also used some resin flowers and buttons to tie off the twine which I have adhered on with glue dots.
