Giveaway Card - Blossom Frames in Black & Cream

Hello Crafters,

It's time for a new giveaway card for you all :-)

As you probably know by now, I don't just design random stamps, I design collections, which, for me anyway, makes complete sense, I mean, who wouldn't want sentiments, frames, backgrounds and verses (and paper pads!) that co-ordinate?...

The most difficult thing I have come across (before I had my own products) was finding co-ordinating stamps... I find it so much easier to grab my box of 'Blossom Stamps' and know that they will all, effortlessly, work with each other... it also makes our lives, as crafters, easier and I'm pretty sure the people we send cards to (although I am a self confessed rubbish card sender!) notice that everything matches and looks 'polished' (I hate the term 'professional', we are all crafters, just that some of us have been doing it longer) :-)

With this in mind, here is a cracking example of how my Blossom collection works,..

I adore black and cream cards and always feel they look classy, whatever the subject...

This is an 8x8 card that makes great use of the two different sizes of square frame stamps, along with the corner sentiments...

Here is what I used (with links to the products on my www in case you 'need' to treat yourself)
Black Foundation Card
Milk Foundation Card
Sentimentally Yours Blossom Large Square Frame stamp
Sentimentally Yours Blossom Small Square Frame stamp
Sentimentally Yours Blossom Corner Sentiments stamps
Sentimentally Yours Blossom Background stamp (stamped onto the camellia flowers)
Double Pierced Square dies by Sue Wilson
Camellia Complete Petal dies by Sue Wilson
Curled Vines dies by Sue Wilson
Black Soot Distress Ink Pad
Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels - Iced Snow
Star Swirls Embossing Folder by Sue Wilson

To be in with a chance of winning this card, simply leave a comment (lovely one, of course) and I will choose a random name next Wednesday (27th)
You must be a follower of my blog (I'll check) and I will let the winner know on a new post on Wednesday :-)

The Close Up
Hope you like it :-)
