Four Frames

Hi everyone.  Hope all is well with you.  Today I am sharing with you two cards that I made last weekend with the Four Frames stamps and coordinating punch from Stampin' Up.  I loves these stamps, particularly the dotty one (love all things dotty!).  The stamps are so versatile as you can put any sentiment you like in them.

The card blanks were ones I cut myself from a sale pack of A5 card from Craftwork Cards.  They measure 10cm x 10xm - perfect for notecards or thank you cards.

Purple card : Craftwork Cards
Paper : The Bloomsbury Collection - Kanban
Stamp and Punch : Four Frames - Stampin' Up
Ribbon : Grosgrain from collection
Sentiment : Find Joy Every Day - Marion Emberson
Inks : Rich Razzlebery, Old Olive - Stampin' Up

Cream card : Craftwork Cards
Paper : The Canterbury Collection - Kanban
Stamp and Punch : Four Frames - Stampin' Up
Ribbon : Grosgrain from collection
Sentiment : Find Joy Every Day - Marion Emberson
Ink : Tempting Turquoise - Stampin' Up

I'm not generally a fan of Kanban, but I really like these papers.  They are very good quality and the designs are so elegant.

I've planned my next Stampin' Up order and have managed to persuade Mark to buy me something for Mothers Day (I've promised he can keep it until the day and wrap it up!!).  I love the Ink Spots and can't wait to get another set - I think I am going to go for the Subtles this time.  I definitely need to expand my range.

I hope you have managed to sneak in some crafting time today.  I spent the whole morning cleaning up after the dog - there was more mud on the floor than in the garden!  I have managed to spend a couple of hours making cards this afternoon though, so that made up for it.

Chloe seems to have calmed down at night.  She is still howling pathetically, but it's each night it's gets less and less.  I think she has finally got the message (famous last words!!).

Take care and thanks for dropping by.

  1. I love this punch and the stamps and could put it on everything at the moment! I love the colours you've used and how well they match with the papers. I must admit I've found quite a bit in my stash that works well with SU cardstock, so if it helps me to use it up it's worth it, isn't it?

  2. These are both gorgeous Michelle but I must say the first one has the edge for me with those gorgeous colours. I love the dotty frame too and the Rich Razzleberry goes really well with the paper. Those frames are brilliant for all kinds of messages aren't they! Looking forward to seeing what you're going for next time! I'm glad Chloe is getting the message - you must have so much patience! Vicky x
