Social Stamping - Thank you!

Thank You for joining us on this Social Stamping Blog Hop!

I really thought when I was working from home, I would have so much more time, but I was so run down, I could not wake up, & have been trying to let myself recover, so I have not had any extra time at all.

but I really wanted to play with this new set, so when Kelly offered to run a "thank you" Social Stamping blog hop, I needed to join her. Thanks Kelly!

Ornate Garden is an early release set, from our next annual catalogue, & when I first saw it, the papers stood out as something I wasn't sure about. Then I had a closer look, & I loved both sets of dies, & I needed the font stamp set, so I figured I would just get the entire suite.

When it arrived, the main side of the papers still didn't jump out at me, I didnt dislike them, but they are very different to what I would normally use.

However.... there were 4 pages that I was INSTANTLY in love with.
they all had gold foil imaging, & so I knew I needed to start with them

But then I needed to choose from all the amazing dies that the set came with, all these edges, how does one choose?

Well I decided that since the paper was so elegant, all it needed was simple, & this was the result. 

but then I decided I actually DID like the other side, & changed it up a bit for a more colourful version, & I quite liked that too!

Anyway, dont forget to check out the others on this great blog hop. 
You can check out the Main List  or pop over to Narelle Simms blog

Happy Stamping!


  1. Odette, Sure does make such pretty cards without too much embellishing <3 Cheers Shaz

  2. Simple but gets the point across nicely. Great way to show off the DSP and the die around the sentiment looks great.

  3. Gorgeous! The dies are so wonderfully intricate, I love the layering you've chosen. I agree, isolation is a busy time! Kelly x

  4. It's funny, I haven't found much spare time in isolation either! When you have such pretty paper it makes sense to keep it simple. Lovely cards.

  5. Very elegant cards Odette, this suite is growing on me x

  6. Beautiful cards Odette, I love them both. I was a bit undecided with the DSP too, but you may have just convinced me.

  7. Oh My. Both of these cards are absolute stunners!! I love the clean lines of the gold foil with the white, AND I love the coloured one too! So beautiful.

  8. A beautiful duo of cards - those frames are beautiful. The gold one is my favourite.
