Waiting....and a card!

So I've arrived home, safe and sound, just me and my 2 little ones. My husband is still in Canberra finalising last minute bits n' pieces and will join us hopefully, sooner than later...

In the mean time though, I'll have to wait a week before our furniture, the kids toys, MY CRAFT ROOM!!! all arrive...and the only thing worse than packing is unpacking! I was however, a little smart, I took some supplies with me on the plane, and the last 2-3 weeks purchased a few awesome stamps, new ink pads etc and had them already posted here. 

Now, when I went to unpack my suitcase, I found that my stamp press unfortunately didn't make it! Devastated... but I was able to mend it with good old tape! It will eventually need replacing, but I did manage to make my mother's day card using it. 

Here is the damaged stamp press.... :(

and here is the card I made with it.


(Totally in love with the added dimension - using Mama Elephant ' Hello' die cut)

Is it just me, or are flower stamps on trend at the moment? 

I used Mama Elephant stamps sets: Happy Everything & Water Blooms

  1. Samantha how sad to see your stamp press damaged:( Bet you will be itching to set up your home and craft stuff once everything arrives. Always a good feeling when it's all done! Love your gorgeous Mother's Day card and the gorgeous design across the front.

  2. If you ask ONLY me, I'd say floral stamps NEVER go out of style! But I'm so glad to see them being used more and more! You did a wonderful job, Samantha, with these little stamps from that set! (I have had it for ages, and have never used the little ones - you've inspired me!) Thanks so much for sharing your lovely card with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  3. Such a pretty card Samantha - and wonderful stamping of all those flowers! Yes, flowers are definitely on trend, especially those small blooms we often overlook - lovely to see them being used like this! Thanks so much for joining us at Scrapbook Boutique - and good luck with the rest of the unpacking:)

  4. So sorry to hear about your stamp press. It looks as if you've created a lovely card, though. The colors are Wonderful! Thank you for sharing your work with us this week for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.



  5. Such a beautiful card. I love all your stamping and the colour combination you have used. Thanks for joining us at Scrapbook Boutique.

  6. Your card is so beautiful Samantha, and with so few supplies (pst don't tell your husband wink). I'm so glad you had a chance to create and share it with us at Scrapbook Boutique, now I guess a stamp press might be added to the list for Mother's Day.

  7. OH NO!!! I love my stamp press!! I would be devastated if mine broke!! nevertheless, you have managed a gorgeous card and nice and in time for Mother's day! Thanks for joining in and sharing with us at Scrapbook Boutique.
