Spring Has Sprung = Papermill Direct

Well we had the March winds, we’ve been having the April showers so I definitely think that the May flowers will be out in force this year!

To celebrate sping and a new Papermill Direct partner, you could win a box of card in your choice of colour(s). You can see more details about the new stockist and the competition on this blog post.

I have three cards to share with you.

First p are two cards which are pretty simlar apart from the colour and the placement of the flowers

You could totally batch make these and never run out of Birthday cards again! Hehe.

The second is a taller card than I would normally make but it’s really eye catching. It could work for many occasions from Weddings to Get Well Soon cards.

Catching Up

It’s been a while…

I’ve not been at all well for most of April actually. I had a cold that wouldn’t go and then my asthma started playing uo big time and then just to add insult to injury, I got bronchitis. Talk about things coming in threes

How come nothing nice comes in threes?

So this is a catch up post since I’ve neglected a few design team posts.

Papermill Direct.

Papermill have some new offers which you can see on their offers page on the website. Firstly these wonderful cream C6 envelopes are half price at £2.75 for 50 – total bargain, they feel lovely.

I made mine fit for Easter by stamping and colouring on them. I used Derwent Coloursoft pencils so I didn’t have any bleed through issues.

And also on offer is some smooth white paper – perfect to go in the envelopes perhaps?

I made a note pad with the paper using some Nautical printables from Sonya DeHart on etsy.

This fun card was made using same of the elements and cards from the Simple Stories Sn@p collection. Super cute amd since I have a little dog myself, I snapped it up when I saw it.

I’ve also used Papermill Direct ocean blue card as my card base. It’s one of my favourite colours of theirs.

I made this teal ombre card using one of the digi papers by Pink Petticoat

The stamps are by Personal Impressions and the sequins are from Lawn Fawn.

I used Papermill Direct plain white and black card for this card.
