Freshly Made Sketch Challenge

Another very quick post, I just wanted to share this card I made late this afternoon using the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

It was late and the light was fading so I apologise for the quality of the photo, hopefully it is sunny tomorrow and I will try to get a better photo, but in the meantime……

 

A little bit of sneak peek on this card, the cute stamped hearts come from another new stamp set called Groovy Love.  I have used the Hearts a Flutter framelits to cut around the stamped hears, along with a paper Doily and some of the lovely Silver Ribbon.
Happy Stamping!

Envelope Punch Board

I couldn’t wait to play with my Christmas present, the new Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board!


I have used the punch board to make not only envelope, but also the little slider box.


I have used some gorgeous new papers which will be available during Sale-a-Bration, starting on January 28.  Aren’t the colours just gorgeous?  Lots of other goodies available free during Sale-a-Bration, so make sure you contact me to find out how you can make the most of it.


The papers are called Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Papers (#133521 available Jan 28 2014).  As well I have used the Chevron Embossing Folder, Hearts a Flutter Framelits (#130159), Label Love stamp set (#130622 Clear, #130619 Wood), the Artisan Label Punch (#130920) and of course the Envelope Punch Board (#133774).   You can order any, or all of these products by visiting my Stampin’ Up! website here.

Happy Stamping!

Dynamic Duos #47

A gorgeous colour combination again this week, Pool Party and Cherry Cobbler.

What can I say… other than, yum, yum, yum! 🙂  Love these colours!

The photo doesn’t really do justice to the card, the embellishment consists of one of the Soda Pop Tops, which has been flattened by running it through the Big Shot, and then I have layered it with one of the Vintage Faceted Buttons. I have also used the Cloudy Day Embossing Folder, some of the gorgeous More Amore Specialty papers, the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and matching Framelits Dies and the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and matching punch.
Check out what the rest of the Design Team have come up with for these colours here, and I look forward to seeing what you have made too.
Happy stamping!

Dynamic Duos #40

This week’s colour challenge from Dynamic Duos is to use the colours Tempting Turquoise and Basic Black, what a stunning combination!  As an extra option, you can use clouds on your creation, however I chose not to with this week’s challenge.


I used this combination to make hubbies Valentine’s card, rather than traditional colours, but wanted to do something a little different, so I have made a swing card.  I haven’t attempted these before, and was quite pleased with how it turned out, however it does make it rather difficult to photograph!  So I apologise in advance for the photo, really doesn’t do it justice.

I have used the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and the matching Framelits Dies (current Seasonal Catalogue, Page 11), and also included one of the “Love” tickets from the Artisan Embellishments Kit ( current Seasonal Catalogue, Page 10).  And I have used the cute little hearts from the Henry Says stamp set.

I do hope you join us again this week.  Lots of inspiration again from the rest of the wonderful Design Team.

Happy Stamping!
