A Colour Challenge

Here is my card for the NAC#74 using a colour combination of Crisp Canteloupe, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana. The Eiffel Tower stamp comes from the Follow My Heart set and the DSP is one of the papers from the Sweet Sorbet Sale-a-bration pack. I have also used a sentiment and two Bermuda Bay banners from the Good As Gold Simply Sent kit - another free item available with orders of £45. The card is finished off with a few rhinestones and some Crisp Canteloupe Ruffle Stretch Trim - I hope you like it!

Here is my own stamp that I carved using Stampin' Up's Undefined kit. The stamp itself isn't all that pretty, but I'm happy with the image it produces. I've used Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar as the colours on this rather lovey-dovey card.
Here is a birthday card I recently made for a friend. It uses a stamp set and punch that will both be available during Sale-a-bration - Banner Blast and the co-ordinating Banner punch. Such a lovely stamp set - perfect for combining with the Owl Builder punch.

Happy New Year

I hope you have had a lovely Christmas. This card is a sneak preview of Petal Parade, a gorgeous stamp set that is on its way for Sale-a-bration - a very exciting time of the year when you can get free exclusive Stampin' Up products with orders of £45. There are also additional hostess benefits if you host a party during this time. Sale-a-bration runs from 28th January to 31st March and is my favourite time in the SU calendar.

My congratulations card combines Smoky Slate and Crushed Curry cardstock with Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper. I have used two stamps from Petal Parade (there are five in the set), along with the Pansy and Boho Blossoms punches.
Here are some tulips in a vintage enamel coffee pot that always reminds me of Pool Party. My upcoming class dates will be following shortly, so please watch this space!
