Springtime Vintage samples

Thought it was about time I shared some of my own samples with you all.  Inspiration came initially from the workshop I attended with the wonderful Linds Gould but I've added several of my own ideas, using the Springtime Vintage paper set to show the great range of things you can create with yummy Stampin'Up! stamps and embellishments...

I'm particularly pleased with the subtle image on the buff card - I used Crumb Cake ink on the Very Vintage jumbo Stampin' Around wheel to create this effect.

I like the way you can get a very different look just by changing background colours on the same design - above and below.

As you can see below, you can make boxes and other three dimensional craft items like pillow boxes or candy boxes, great for little gifts!

Of course you can make wonderful scrapbook pages as well...

The last one, below, uses papers from the Elegant Soiree designer set (apologies for the colour cast on the scan)

Inspiring workshop

I attended a fabulous Stampin' Up workshop at the weekend with a gang of my favourite people.  We had a blast and got some wonderful inspiration and new design ideas.  Here are a few of the samples designed by the incredibly talented Lindsay Gould:

These were created using the Springtime Vintage designer series paper pack, Baby Blossoms & Four Frames stamp sets and coordinating ink pads, all from the Mini Catalogue. Hope you feel inspired - I certainly do!!
