Mix It Up Monday with Lots of Lavender

Today sees the return of Mix It Up Monday, although the technical difficulties I had trying to create the colour combo image make me wonder if it was worth the effort! 

I used the gorgeous new Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Lots of Lavender, which seemed the obvious choice for this colour combination. It’s a beautiful two-step stamp set, which also lends itself well to colouring. 

Here’s a top tip for stamping the leaves and stems. You can position them individually if you like but, if you’re making a few cards using this stamp set, my tip is to stamp the outline image first, then lay down the leaf and stalk stamps (uninked) on top, then apply the block to them to pick them up. You’ll have all three stamps on a block ready to use over and over again. 


  1. Fantastic tip....I never would have thought of that! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I surprised myself with this one ;)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
