More Flurries

I have seen so many gorgeous ideas using the Festive Flurry Bundle  (Wood #133284, Clear #133285) that I just had to share another project.  I think I will have to use them to make some Christmas decorations this week!

 

I’m not sure if I am keen on this card, I think the stack of snowflakes makes it a little heavy, and you certainly wouldn’t put it into a standard envelope and send it through the post in Australia!  Guess I will be making a special envelope for it 🙂
The colours I have used are Rich Razzleberry and Smokey Slate (which is a very versatile colour!), a piece of the Silver Foil Sheet (#132178) which has been run through the Big Shot (#113439) using the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder, (#129984) some silver Glimmer Paper (# 124005) and Silver Ribbon (#132137), and of course some of my all time favourite – Faux stitching.
This week’s SUO Challenge #85 is to use non-traditional Christmas colours in a project, so I will be sharing this card with the ladies there.  And there is heaps of great inspiration on their blog if you are looking for some ideas.

Happy Stamping!

Introducing Mosaic Madness

Ok, yes it has been a while since my last post, not quite sure where the time has gone…… anyway, I am sure you have been getting your inspiration elsewhere, and you may have noticed just how popular anything and everything mosaic is right now.  As always, Stampin’ Up! are onto this trend and in the new catalogue which is only a week away from release, includes the fantastic Mosaic Madness stamp set.

My card features the Mosaic Madness stamp set, the matching punch, and also the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.  You might also notice that the colour is not a familiar one…. this is Pistachio Pudding, one of the gorgeous range of new In Colours.

Talking about all the new goodies from the new catalogue, you can come along to my Catalogue Launch dates, Thursday 4th July at 7.30pm or Sun 7th July at 2pm.  Send me an email for more details.

I think I might just be able to squeeze this card in for the current challenge with the girls over at Freshly Made Sketches, and I promise to be back with more ideas and projects for you soon.
Happy Stamping!
Chris
