Oh So Lovely!!!!

I've been a tad quiet lately, haven't I??? So SORRY about that.... Have been REALLY busy... planning and cutting cards for our 'Tart and Tangy' Class last week..... which was soooo much fun (yes I will post some more pics of that soon...well of the little treats I made for the girls!!!) and then planning, making and cutting cards for our 'Seasons of Joy' Class this week and of course making and cutting cards for the Lovely Bec's Workshop on Friday Night....(HELLOOOO BEC!!!!).
I will post some photos of the cards we made at Bec's soon, must recharge the camera battery first though and then of course prepare my BUMP for another 'On the Ground, Deck, Photo Shoot', which is becoming increasingly MORE DIFFICULT to pull off... hahahaha.
Anyway back on track... here are some pictures of the set of cards and card holder I made as a gift for Bec. I've seen many of these card/letter holders made and thought it was about time I made one for myself. And I don't know why it's taken me so long, they really are so EASY to make and look so gorgeous when they are all together.
The lovely Sarah Klass had made a set of cards for one of her Hostesses using the gorgeous 'Oh So Lovely' Hostess Stamp Set.... which I must admit until just recently I had overlooked in the catalouge, but not anymore!!!!!.. So I got my inspiration from Sarah and changed the colours and dimension of the cards a tad for Bec.

And here they all are:-

I've used Confetti White Cardstock for all of them and the inks and ribbons are all from the current 'In-Colours' range. The first one is made with Purely Pomegrante, the second with Blue Bayou and lastly, Groovy Guava.
Here is a pic of the Card Holder I made to put them all in:-
This first shot is of the finished card holder all closed up... I just made a Belly Band with Soft Sky and Blue Bayou Cardstock and stamped another flower and coloured it in then attached it to a scallop which I'd punched the centre out of. And here is an open shot of it with all of the cards and envelopes:-
This gift really was a pleasure to make and not only 'Oh so Lovely' but 'Oh so Easy'. And such a beautiful gift to give to someone special.

Have I managed to convince you to hold you're own Workshop.... you may even qualify to choose either this gorgeous Oh So Lovely Stamp set or the ever versatile 'So Many Sayings' Stamp set for yourself. Contact me if you are interested!!!!
