These save the date cards were made using the medalion background stamp. Stamped white on black and black on white, I then stamped over the first image in shimmer paint.

I made these as postcards rather than full cards which means that 96 cards can be made from the one lot of supplies.

Paper Flower Arrangement

Just love these paper floweres in the in colours



I'm not much of a florist but I made this little arrangement using the in colours.

The little vase I picked up at Dunelm mill for £2.99 and I already had the glass pepples.

I used the flower daisies die and layered them up, then just stuck them to the stems, which I picked up at the craft shop. Easy.
