And the second love note card uses a set from the new Summer mini. I really love this flower image and can see myself using it alot. Next week, I can share with you the details about this stamp set and all the other great sets in the new mini catalogue!
And for my last project, I've made a landscape card using another set from the Spring Mini. The stamp set is Enjoy Every Moment, which is a great set for scrapbooking but also for cards. I've used the Teal and Red marker pens to ink up the letters on 'Enjoy' and stamped onto Whisper White. Just one of the many techniques you can do with SU marker pens - don't forget about the wonderful promotion on at the moment where you can buy the marker pens SINGLE.

This card has a Going Grey base onto which I've layered Saffron cardstock. On this piece, I've stamped up the Tres Chic BG stamp onto a part of the cardstock. Then I've used the cute elephant and giraffe images from Wild about You and made some circles using my CM cutter. The 'love' sentiment is from the Tres Chic BG stamp - I've stamped onto some White cardstock and used the SU circle punches to cut out the word. The card has been completed with taffeta ribbon and some bling brads.
With so much cardstock and accessories spread out over my craft table, I thought I would quickly make up this scrapbook page. The colours in the photo were perfect for this round.

I've just checked out the latest challenge, an inspiration one this time, and it looks fabulous, so can't wait to give that one a go. But for now, I'm spending the weekend with the family. We have my parents over for a few days and the weather is sunny and gorgeous, so I'm sure we will be heading out somewhere this arvo. Til next time....

I have to say I have never even used Orchid Oppulence, I don't even have the ink pad!! WOW.
So these are the three colours I've chosen from my inspiration photo - a lovely orchid I received as a gift. Isn't is just beautiful.
The first is a square card using the bird image from Always. I've ink the bird in the Pixie Pink, then stamped it off once. Then I've used my marker pens to 'thump' some colour onto the bird. I've cut this out using my CM cutters. The circle has been matted onto the Orchid cardstock which has a stamp from the same set in the Versamark, then the olive, with a pink base. The happiness sentiment is from Warm Words and I've finished off the card with some grosgrain ribbon.
So there you have it, my three projects using this different colour combination. They worked quite well together and I may have to use Orchid Opulence more often! Leave me a comment if you create something with these colours; I'd love to see.

And here's what I've come up with:
I thought this sketch would be great for an 8x8 scrapbook page. Isn't this the cutest picture - Adam & Amber playing together on the beach!
