Quick Cards

Thought I ought to stock up on my cards and made these the other day.  I was very inspired by Paula Whittaker's recent article in August's Craftstamper. If you haven't already seen Paula's blog, pay a visit - she makes the most gorgeous creations.


The Sentiments are Donna Downey from Unity Stamps and the flower stamps are from Stamp-It, an Australian company...


I haven't seen any of their stamps for a long time - not sure if they are still available in the UK.


Love this black and white one...

These are very elegant and quite unusual - I love them. I haven't seen these stamps anywhere until now. Lovely colours and I like the way you have used them.

Very stylish, Carol - love the strong design. I love Donna Downey stamps and have had a couple of the plates for years - cost me an arm and a leg, lol - or so I thought at the time :-) One day, I will get myself a current Craft Stamper, just to see what's happening x

Beautiful cards, Carol. I lvoe the colurs in the first one & the B&W is very classy. I really like those sentiment stamps by Donna Downey.

Lovely cards but I am partial to the black and white one too. I have not heard of the company for a long time either.
Thanks for sharing those beauties.
Hugs, neet xx
