Sunflowers and Magenta

Go really well together. This peel-Off has sold out time and time again in the shop.



Karen has put the peel-off sunflowers onto Magenta paper and cut them out. The background paper is also Magenta. A really simple card, ideal for a beginner and so easy to make.







Todays Products are: Sunflower Peel-Off; Magenta Raspberry Odyssey Paper; Magenta Colours of Fall Paper; Bazzill Cardstock Raven and White.

More tomorrow.

Who'd have thought it.........................

how easy it is to make a fantastic card from peel-offs. These are just two of the hundreds of peel-offs we now have in the shop.





















and here are just two of the cards you can make with them.



























You can find the peel-offs here. The leaf paper used in the Thank You card is called Botanical Garden and the Delicate Flower Peel-Offs are painted using the Stargazers Watercolour Palette and Water Brushes.
The leaf Peel-Offs on the flower card have been stuck on vellum and cut out. If you want to make this card you will need 2 sheets of the peel-offs.


Watch out for more ideas tomorrow.

Sometimes................................

it just takes someone elses talent to get you over that mental block.

How many time have you seen a stamp with a coloured picture on the wooden block and thought WOW but what would I do with it.

That's what we thought when we saw this Stamps Happen stamp arrive in the shop.



So we gave the stamp to Gayle Bond and this is what she did with it. You can see more detailed images on the at www.scrapbooksisters.co.uk




Over the coming weeks you will be able to see how stamps and peel-offs can be used to create beautiful cards. These designs will be provided by Scrapbook Sisters, Gail Bond and any of our clever customers. Watch this space. There are some fantastic ideas to come.
