I really wanted this stamp set, its so on trend at the moment and I just knew I could  make some beautiful cards with the Flowering Desert stamp set.  As you can see I have a few decorative items in my studio that are cacti….so cute!

Inspiration came quickly with this set as I couldn’t wait to play.

I just think the above card is simple to put together and yet super elegant, this classic colour combination will suit so many occasions.  I used the subtles card stock for all of these cards.

Wishing you well.

Linda Leask designs-2

Wishing you well is one of my absolutely favourite stamp sets from the current catalogue. Look at the elegance of these images. Ideal for projects no matter the season. These Distinktive stamps are simply for the heart.

I love the pink and white theme, so simple and clean and it has worked well as a christmas card, see above.

These “just a note” are a great thank you card or perfect for quick note to a friend, change the sentiment to happy birthday… and what a gorgeous birthday card!

 

This set of cards took no time at all, an hour including all prep time.  I find it easier to pre cut once I have decided on my design then put it all together.

When making this set of cards I clear embossed the bouquet of flowers, the bow and the wreath, not only does this give shine it gives a dimensional look and a professional finish. This card set covers many occasions and is a must have for those of you on the road. The sky is the limit when you team a versatile stamp set like this (Wishing you well) with Stampin’ Up’s designer series papers.

Choose different colour combinations for a completely different look:

Breathe…the big move!

If you have been wondering what I have been up to for the last three months, we have been organising a big move!  My husband and I made a decision to move to another state, from Western Australia to Tasmania. Yes, its been epic, with lots of fun and a few tears. Leaving our children and granddaughter back home in WA was difficult and I try to talk to them most days, of course they are planning to visit.

As for me personally,  so far its been a fabulous experience and I’m getting ready to start my crafting and painting as a full time career.  If the cat will get off my desk!

The packing was great and very quick as we had people to do all the work …but the unpacking has not been so magical…I cant find anything and yet I’m finding things I didn’t know I still had!  The joys of a move, we are waiting on our cars to arrive so I’m house bound, which has been a blessing as I have no choice but to unpack, sort and organise (and create). More creating than organising!

We flew the dog and cat over a few weeks after us so we could have a look around the island.  Its been an interesting week since the pets have arrived. Miss Molly is still a little traumatised from the entire flight experience and giving us the cold shoulder, except at walk time (she perks up then!). The cat who is 19 has taken it in her stride but is choosing weird and inconvenient places to set herself down. The main thing is they are here with us now and helping to create the feeling of home.

I have to say that Tasmania is really beautiful, lovely green fields, trees, historic buildings and beautiful turquoise oceans.  Some parts seem rugged and untamed whilst other are so precise and almost planned out that the contrasts are truly exceptional.  A small state, we have already travelled from one side to the other, but we plan to see it all and everything in between!

Our gorgeous cottage is a historic home in town and very comfortable with fire places, quirky windows, tin sheds scattered around our massive yard and a big veranda around the home! Exactly what I had put on my vision board a year earlier! It even has a red door.
