Eastern Blooms

Today I’d like to share with you a coupe of easy cards I’ve made using the new Eastern Blooms stamp set in the Summer Mini Catalogue – remember if you dont have your free copy email or ring me and I’ll get one to you as soon as Aussie Post can 😉

Ever since Nicki made that set of cards with the lovely colour combination of Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie and Rose Red I’ve been wanting to make some.

Now I know this card is no where near as nice as Nicki’s set but thought I’d share it with you. I’ve used our square punches for the flower tiles and it makes a very simple & bright birthday card.

I’ve also used the Happy Birthday from Its your birthday stamp set for the greeting at the bottom.

Here’s another very easy card to make and works well at a Stamp A Stack.

If you havent noticed I am rather in love with Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive combination and the pale plum just goes so nicely with those two colours. You’d never know I liked purple would you??

The flowers on the Pale Plum layer are stamped in versamark and I’ve uses my markers to colour the stem stamp in old olive and eggplant for the flowers. I love the richness too of the Eggplant Grosgrain.

The For You greeting comes from Occassional Greetings stamp set which is a great set for different greetings and one for just about every occasion.

This is the last card for today. As you can see from these cards you can get different styles with just the one set and great value at just $39.95 for 5 stamps.

Would make a great christmas present too and you can match it with the Bali Breeze designer series papers!

This card is done in Chocolate Chip and River Rock. I’ve used the circle punches to create the little round tab and the Taffeta ribbons just give it the ‘oooo’ effect.

Hope you do like these cards today and look forward to sharing some more and from different sets from the new Summer Mini over the next week or two so dont forget to bookmark this blog and pop back often.

Now it’s back to writing out christmas cards!
