Warming up with pretty cards

After that stretch of focus on the 221B tins (psst, another will be listed on etsy some time this week) I'm ready to get my mess making mojo back and move on to other projects. A bit of a warm up today making a few cards before starting in earnest and altering a few bits and bobs this evening.

I'm planning on doing some card tutorials for Graphic 45 and thought a practice run might be the ideal way to get those juices flowing again. So I grabbed a 12" sheet of Coredinations colour core stock and chopped it into three bits to create three different sized cards.

All of these were created with Botanical Tea. I love this collection. It makes me long for summer and hot breezes with Tom Collins by the pool :) My favourite of the bunch is this one...

Dreamy butterflies and gorgeous Petaloo flowers... swoon!

  1. I also love the new Botanical Tea collection. You have inspired me.. Thanks

  2. I bought every single Botanical Tea paper and embellies and 2 of the 3 stamp sets. I am so in love with this collection and loving your inspiring projects. However, I don't want to cut or stamp or adhere anything, but just gaze at the precious pretties like a collector rather than a crafter. Oh, just slap me silly so I'll take the first cut!

  3. Thanks so much! I do love this new collection. It's a stunner :-)
