In Love....

With My Minds Eye Sweetest Thing Lavender paper collection, specifically the 6x6 pad (of which I bought 2!). I cannot remember the last time that I had so much fun creating with just one paper line, the colours are soft and pretty and the patterns are just perfect!

I decided to embark on, what turned out to be, a marathon card making weekend and I can't believe how many I managed (considering I am a slow cardmaker!) Without further ado here are the *11* cards I came up with:
I'm still 'experimenting' with embossing powders, it just seems to be the one thing I can't seem to do properly (as evidenced by the faded doily edge at the bottom). This was made using the Lavender 'Cutie Pie' stamp set which I adore.
They are just so delicate and lacy and look fabulous when stacked on top of one another. I intend to make these into a cut file on my silhouette so I can die cut and stamp to my hearts content. I do love the colours on this, especially the new Morocco memento ink.
And they look great when stamped with kraft coloured ink on kraft paper. This card was made to use up scraps from the first card.
I went with a clear cardstock base on this card, not a good choice as I completely covered it in paper. I think the stamps look so fresh in these colours.
Love ruffly seam binding ribbon!
I love the sentiments that come on the tiny word stickers. One in particular 'tender hearted' I am saving for a card for my mum as it is such a great description of her.
I started playing with scraps, cutting them into matchstick strips and adhering to the card base.
A sweet card, perfect for valentines day (it's not that far off!)
I made this fabric flower a long time ago, not knowing what to do with it, until now! It is a perfect match to the paper. I love it when a plan comes together ;)
I am always in need of cards for birthdays and the die cut #1 seemed to be a perfect fit when coupled with the tiny word sticker and label. I think this one is quite girly so I tried a more 'unisex' version here..
Have I exhausted you yet? There are another 4 cards that aren't shown as they have been submitted for a publication call, which brings the grand total to 15 cards made!

I am now about to embark on a little scrapbooking action using the same paper. Thanks for looking and have a great week :)
