One beautiful by-product of being isolated at home, during these uncertain times, is that cards are being churned out in my craft room!  Despite missing my normally-very-social life, I am enjoying the lack of time constraints, and seem to have found my crafting mojo after a rather long "blah" period.

I've just opened my pack of Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is one of the free products on offer during Sale-A-Bration.  Also being used for the first time is the gorgeous Tags in Bloom stamp set - another Sale-A-Bration free product. Today's the last day to earn these freebies!

The sheet of Flowering Foils DSP I have used started off white, with open rose gold flowers, and silver leaves.  I coloured the flowers with Rococco Rose Stampin' Blends, and the leaves with Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends.  I then used the Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blend to fill in the background, before cutting around the top of the panel.  I adhered the coloured DSP to a piece of Woven Threads DSP in Rococco Rose.

Here's a closer look at the shiny metallic outlines of the images:

I've made a few cards from this sheet of coloured paper, so be on the lookout for more creations in the coming days!

Today's card started off with some flowers that I'd stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured with Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends.  I think this pop of colour looks nice on a predominantly white card, with touches of black and silver.

How beautiful is the result achieved on the white panel, with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder?  A white-embossed sentiment on Basic Black card is subtly backed with Whisper White Polka Dot tulle ribbon.

As promised, today I'm sharing one of the cards I made when Stampin' Up! first released the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies suite of products.  I made this card before surfing the internet, to see others' creations, and I must say I've seen a number of cards that look very similar.  Still, I like it, and hope to inspire you to make something pretty yourself!

In addition to the stamps, dies, papers and sequins in this suite, I have used a black scalloped strip from the Peaceful Poppies Elements pack.  Love the black accents!

If you would like to purchase these gorgeous products, and you live in Australia (and don't already have your own Stampin' Up! demonstrator), I would love for you to shop with me.  You can get to my online store by clicking on any of the thumbnail images below.
