1. Spring Solitude

The background is chalked to give a 'sponged' effect. The colours used are . Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac and Whisper White.

2. Bud Basics

Using 2 step stamping you can quickly cover a large area of an A5 sheet with this set. The colours used are Regal Rose, Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant and Very Vanilla.

3. Natural Beauty


Using the lovely Natural Beauty stamp set and watercolour techniques you will produce a subtly coloured sheet you'll hate to cut up to make the cards! The colours used here are Bashful Blue, Perfect Plum, Barely Banana and Whisper White with a hint of Sage Shadow.

4. Artfully Asian

With this OSW you will get the chance to use a new technique. Using a Whisper White craft pad you will stamp your images and then using chalks you will transfer the colours to the white ink giving a visually stunning effect. The colours for this are Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Summer Sun and Very Vanilla.

5. Like it a Latte

This is one of my favourite sets, just seeing that cup and the steam makes my mouth water! Using 2 of this years 'In Colours' this OSW is very 'in vogue', if you can say that in the crafting world! It will make cards to suit both males and females. The colours used here are Close to Cocoa, Soft Sky, Groovy Guava and Very Vanilla.

Some sample cards



6. Seeing Spots

This is a very versatile set and makes very quick and easy cards and works fantastically with the bold colours! I have not been too precise with my stamping here, especially with the black bit but I figure you can leave the black bit off until you have cut up your sheet and using some circular sentiments I have that fit round the flower, we can show you how to position them exactly and you can choose your sentiment for each card! The colours used here are Pixie Pink. Brocade Blue, Green Galore, Whisper White with hints of Lavender Lace and Basic Black.

Some sample cards



7. Wild About You

I forgot to take the picture of this before I cut it up so here is a slideshow of the cards you can make! Just click on the picture below!



This is a great funky set for kids and adults alike! The colours used here are Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Taken with teal, Whisper White with a hint of Summer Sun (I think we all need that!).

8. Unfrogrettable

Again some sample cards, but please not the colours on these are not totally representational of the colours we'll be using on the day, they are outlined below!



This is a fun set and very versatile! Again this one suits the bold colours. USing Watercolour Wonder Crayons or Watercolour Pencils you can easily paint up this fun sheet!

The colours used here are Real Red, Green Galore, Only Orange and Yoyo Yellow
