Fiona Harris -
Cayleigh May -

Before I show you my creation I would like to answer the questions that have been put before me........

1. What are you working on right now?

I am working on projects for my APRIL/MAY classes, I love teaching new techniques and love how peoples faces light up when they finish a card and in there head i can here them saying " I made that" I am nominating my lovely downline Fiona Harris HERE who has not only been an amazing friend and support to me over the last 7yrs but is becoming a very talented Crafter and Cayleigh MayHERE who is an awsome talent not only crafing but her organisational and business skills are invaluable. Thank you ladies ...

2. How does your work differ from others in your genre?
I dont usually stamp direct on to a card base, so thought i would push myself to show how to make quick cards, I am pretty pleased, I also used a stamp set that i hadnt really liked other than having it for the words, now im like why did i not use that before.

3. Why do you create what you do?
I'm addicted to it Haha! I LOVE IT, I have always been creative, i used to sew ( my mum was a seemstress), i made my two best friends wedding dresses and studied for an interior design degree. When my husband passed away 6 yrs ago it was my therapy, my saviour along with good friends i got thru it and I just cant put it down now.

4. How does your creative process work?
I get a stamp set, and just stamp it onto photo copy paper first then start adding then think Na not right go again and then eventually theres a pile on the floor and the winning fomular on my desk and there it is. I find insperation in magazines and pinterest, you see colours tgthr and go wow that works now let's try it with what i have got...

Now onto my cards which are very spring like you can what ever sentiments you like to these.. i hope you like them.

Crazy about you stamp set - BY Stampin' Up! 

Stawberry slush

Daffodil Delght/ Hello Honey

Pink Pirouette /Stawberry slush 
Perfect Plum

I made a mask using a the scolloped punch to enable me to stamp the leaves and small flower buds behind the main image. You do this by first stampin the large flower onto the card then placing the scolloped punch out over the top you can then stamp the leaves and medium flowers then add the tiny flower stamp to the leaves.

On the Perfect Plum and Stawberry slush card I added stitch lines around the large flower and on the other two I added the stitch lines around the outside of the cards. I used four colours but you could make them all the same if you wish.

Then Add a greeting of your choice.
