Who has heard the nursery rhyme about 5 little Ducks & Mother Duck? This rhyme is what came to mind when I saw these darling images.

Birthday Squirrel

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - All My Love

#KOCreationsCards #AllMyLoveSuite #StampinUp30 #Valentines #Anniversary #Romance #CardMaking #SteppedUpCardMaking #Beginnercardmaker #Casualcardmaker #Avidcardmaker #Roses #Craft

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog.

Today I am hopping as part of the Stamping Sunday crew.
We have chosen to showcase the 'All My Love' suite, which is available from pages 5-6 of the new Occasions catalogue..
This suite has such a romantic feel to it that lends itself nicely to Valentines, Anniversary and even Birthdays. 
Catalogues below in PDF format. Click on the pictures to open them up

 Don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator yet? Want a copy of these catalogues? 
Contact me today for your copy to be posted out to you.

I have chosen to use items from page 5 of the catalogue for my projects today. 
The bundle I am using has a two step stamp that enables you to have your flowers all stamped at the same time! While step two enables you to add in the leaves. It even adds the shading for you, how cool is that!

I have an image below showing the first steps of my cards.

   This is step one of the two step        Step 2 adds in the leaves.            Here I have added my own                          stamp.                                                                                    step. This is called daubing.                                                                                                                      Lightly and gently spreading                                                                                                                        a touch of colour around                                                                                                                         the white spaces surrounding                                                                                                                 the rose bouquet.

Beginner Crafter Card

My first card today showcases the two step stamp  as a stand alone image, along with a sentiment. This simple design is perfect for the beginner crafter.

Intermediate (Casual) Crafter Card 

Here I have stepped up the design slightly by adding some colour to the background, a die cut layer as well as some embellishments (Bling)

Avid Crafter Card

For my last card I have stepped up another notch by adding a slightly different layer. This includes die cutting as well as the technique 'Fussy Cuttting' for that extra skill level.
