I used the Polka Dot Punches set for this card.  Although they are designed to fit into the shapes of the paper punches, I decided to use them for a background instead.

Thank You card

I wanted to make a little Thank You card for someone and decided to use the cute little bird from Fun and Fast Notes.  The sentiment on the stamp wasn’t quite right for the reason I was sending it, so I just wiped off the ink from the last part before I printed onto the card stock.  I think it worked very well!

I’ve also been using the Basic Grey Stampin’ Pad™ a lot recently, rather than black.  I quite like the softer look it has for stamped images.

Birthday Cake Card

I really love the size of Love Notes.  They’re so dinky and work so well with the Fun and Fast Notes stamp set. 

This little birthday cake stamp is so cute and I just had to use pink to colour it using Stampin’ Pastels™.  The thing I love most about Stampin’ Pastels™ is that you get the WHOLE range of Stampin’ Up! colours in one set.  What amazing value for money!
