And learn how I create my cards... 
Many people have a vision in mind when they are creating their cards and scrapbook pages. Many describe this as a picture in their heads that they do their best to recreate, or get as near to as possible with the craft stash that they have available.

I'm a bit different in that usually I don't have a clue what I'm going to make, and usually start off with a product (or products) that I really want to use, and then go from there.

I haven't used the Beautiful You stamp set (also available in Wood Mount) in quite a while, and it caught my eye on the shelf. I go through phases with my projects, most recently a nautical theme, so I thought it was time I made something a bit different. I decided that Beautiful You was the stamp set I'd use.

I wasn't sure what colour scheme to use at first, I just knew that I wanted to use this stamp set and perhaps some Designer Series Paper.

I decided that the best way to decide on colours would be to choose the paper first, going with something that caught my eye and I fancied working with, and then build up the card from there.

I chose some green leaf paper from the Natures Poem DSP.

In the end I opted for a colour scheme of Mint Macaron, Tranquil Tide, and Whisper White. You can view all the products I used for this project below.

I love how a project is 'born' with me having no clue what it will look like at the start of the process. Sometimes I am really pleased with the result, other times not so, but I always come away with ideas.





This stamp set is gorgeous; it has an artistic, watercolour feel to it, and the sentiments co-ordinate with the stamps perfectly. The colours I have used are cool in tone but work well together.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, more Stampin' Up! cardmaking ideas coming soon,
