Sweet & Simple Sundays May 10, 2020

Hello lovelies,

Happy Mother's Day!!! I hope you all had a fabulous day and got spoilt, or at least spoilt yourselves like I did? I stayed in my PJ's until 3pm, ate Pringles with my breakfast at 10am by the fire watching a fav TV show...because I could and shortly this evening we are having Haloumi Cheese with Champagne for pre dinner drinks tonight. AND I am not doing the dishes!

Welcome to my new Sweet & Simple Sundays. Every Sunday I will now showcase some lovely quick and easy cards that I have designed and created...because at the end of the week, we just need need to chill out sometimes as life can get too complicated, busy & stressful so we need a release in a happy space.

This week I have the early release Ornate Garden Suite from the new 2020/201 Annual Catalogue.

Ornate Style Bundle 154119 Price:$90.75 AUD

Ornate Thanks Bundle 154115 Price:$81.00 AUD

I have made a few different cards from this suite and had a bit of fun!

This first card I used Mint Macaron Cardstock & ribbon, the sentiment was embossed with White Embossing Powder onto Basic Black Cardstock. The lovely intricate cut Whisper White rectangle was from the Ornate Layers Dies. ( a little tip when using dies from this collection, is to use some quick release paper or even baking paper between the cardstock and dies, this will help the paper come away from the die easier).

At close up you may be able to see where I have stamped onto some Vellum with Soft Suede Ink some words from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set. The ink takes a while to dry, so I used my Heat Tool to speed up the drying process.

I used Terracotta Tile Cardstock as my card base, the white rectangle was embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder. The Thank was embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and flowers were fussy cut from the DSP.

Here I have created a monochromatic colour card with Old Olive to match the Gold Foil Specialty DSP & coordinated it with some ribbon I had on hand. The pretty sparkles are new Gilded Gems.

Would you believe I just turned over the Designer Paper from the picture above and glued it to some Mint Macaron Cardstock! The Thank You was stamped with Terracotta Tiles inked onto Petal Pink Cardstock.

So, same paper, just different sides and coordinating cardstock! Wow!

Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper 152488 Price:$26.00 AUD

It's not easy to see, but there are 4 different gold foil printed sheet designs in this collection.

I used my Sponge Brayer and Melon Mambo ink to add some colour to the gold foil DSP, mounted it onto Whisper White & Melon Mambo Cardstock.

I think this card is one of my favourites, I just fussy cut the flowers out from the DSP and mounted them onto a die cut from the Ornate Layers Dies using Whisper White. The card base is Petal Pink A4 Cardstock. I finished the card with some Magnolia Lane Ribbon from the Combo Pack 149485 Price:$15.75

Can't get any easier than that hey?

I am loving the new Gilded Gems (152478Price:$12.25).

Well, that's all for now. I hope you enjoyed my cards, thanks so much for visiting!

Enjoy your day, and I hope you get spoilt!
