been playing with my new SU goodies

Just thought I'd show a few cards I've made using some of my new SU goodies that I've recently received via that fabby hostess Julie. The card above is for my mil. Eventhough it took quite a while to double stamp the flowers and leaves, then cut them out, I really did enjoy making it. The inkpads I used were apricot appeal and pumpkin pie for the roses, certainly celery and old olive for the leaves, finished off with glamour dust which doesn't really show up too good on this photo.
This card was inspired by Jules, after seeing one similar on her blog, hope you don't mind Jules. I made it for our neighbour who's birthday was last weekend.

This card seems quite bare in comparison to the other rosey one above. It's for no-one in particular, it's the first card I made with the "A Rose is A Rose" stamp set, so it was a practise run, so to speak.

I really do like this stamp called French Flair, it's huge. I've used Sage Shadow cardstock and inpad. Kept the card quite simple as it's a sympathy card for hubby's uncle, who's best friend sadle past away last week after a long battle with MS and cancer.
I've had quite a productive week this week, well cardwise anyway. I'll be back soon to show some of the other cards I've made. Take care all, thanks for popping by xx vicki xx

I made a card using this lovely Rose stamp and it's great to see a different and better version using it.
