Pinterest as inspiration

I have used another pinterest pin as inspiration for using the forever young set of stamps from stampin up... Instead of the tree swing this time the clock.
Inspiration was from this blog post ... catsinkcorporated

I used stampin up papers, watercolour paper to stamp on to provide an aged look to the image. Then added the paper flowers and the little sprigs behind the clock face.

The punched label has the sentiment on it from the new saleabration set I got last week, and the punch is also from stampin up.
My parents are currently staying at my cousins place in Scotland ... A castle no less! Having just sent my cousin the card with the trees from a few days ago she has asked for a box of cards to be sent as she liked it so much so I think this might be the first one I put aside for her. No idea what she is after yet really, but hopefully this will help tick one of the boxes.
I other news I feel dreadful still ... Just making this one card has exhausted me. Haven't managed to do very much at all today, less than I managed yesterday. I am really hoping to feel better tomorrow and bizarrely want to get back to work... Now that's a strange thought!

In the meantime... Thanks for stopping by and looking and please go and look at the blog I was inspired by... There are some lovely cards on there!


  1. The flowers behind the clock really bring it out. Did you stamp the clock twice and use the second one to just cut out the face to go in front of the flowers? It's really effective and such a lovely clock.

    1. Hi hon... It's stamped three times... On the base strip, then cut out the clock part with the bird on top and then another layer for the clock face. Beautiful stamp isn't it! Might look good embossed too so might try that next time I play with the stamp.

  2. gorgeous card! I haven't used the clock yet from that set yet, must get it back out.
