PEEKABOO PEACH SHOWCASED TODAY

My latest design using PEEKABOO PEACH today, another colour I am not sure about but guess I will like it given time.

I am using up my stash of Card Blanks to show this design and although the photo doesn't show, it is actually a Cream Scalloped Card Base. I have so many of these which I want to use up when sending cards to family and friends.




















The new Peekaboo Peach Card has been matted onto the cream card base and I have used both new and retiring stamps on the card. Inks used are Sahara Sand and Peekaboo Peach and the list of stamps are shown below.

I thought it looked rather plain so decided to attach a Cream Organza Ribbon for interest. Yes I did make the bow myself  using my new Bowmaker Tools. (this is for my Sister's benefit) lol
Please tell me if the ribbon was a good idea.

FLIRTY FLAMINGO - Quick and Easy Card

Today is day 3 of sharing the New Colours from Stampin' Up!  You will be able to order them from June 1st. I would  love it if you decide to use me as your Demonstrator and I look forward to welcoming you on board.

I am sharing a really quick and easy card today showcasing - FLIRTY FLAMINGO
Not sure about this colour but I think it will 'grow' on me. What do you think?

The stamp set I chose to use is retiring at the end of May which is a shame as it is a beautiful stamp and one I will keep in my collection.
It is called Flowering Flourishes





















Another Flip Top Card which I love as you can get 2 cards from one sheet of A4 Cardstock.

I used my 'MISTI' for the first time using the above stamp and I like it a lot.



















Sometimes we all have friends to send a thank you card to , which is why I chose the sentiments. These are from Awesomely Artistic, still current and Gifts of Kindness which has retired.

I hope you like this quick and easy card and hope you leave me feedback, good or bad and follow me on this blog.

EMERALD ENVY MEETS DELIGHTFUL DIJON

Today I am showcasing the 2nd new colour from Stampin' Up! which is EMERALD ENVY

I have combined it with DELIGHTFUL DIJON to show how the colours work together along with VERY VANILLA




This time I created a side opening card using Emerald Envy as the base.
The layer colour is Very Vanilla
Using for the first time, my set of dies to create a border,  which combine beautifully  with Botanical Blooms Stamp Set. I bought this as a 'Bundle' however you can now buy them seperately.

Both the Stamp Set and Dies are a 'must have' as they work so well together.
The honeycomb, sentiment, butterfly and postage stamp are from Butterfly Basics Set.

I hope you will join me on my journey, follow and leave comments.

DEBUTING DAPPER DENIM - NEW IN COLOUR FROM STAMPIN' UP!

On my blog from today, I am introducing you to one of the 5 New Colours from Stampin' Up!
Today's post showcases - DAPPER DENIM

A beautiful Denim Blue which I love and the two cards below show my designs.


Celebrate You and Gorgeous Grunge

They are Flip Top cards and you get two cards from one sheet of A4 Dapper Demin Cardstock simply by cutting the card in half along the short side, then scoring in half along the long side to fold.
'Celebrate You' uses the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set and of course 'Gorgeous Grunge' speaks for itself.
I used two step stamping onto Whisper White Card for the Blossoms and one step stamping on the Sentiment. A few Rhinestones were added to make my card pop

Two step stamping again on the Gorgeous Grunge card in a random pattern plus Petite Petals Stamp for a few flowers. I added extra flowers mounted on Dimensionals where the flowers had been stamped with Basic Pearls for the centre of the flowers. Finally finished off with a small butterfly from the Papillion Potpouri set and matching Punch. Basic pearls for the body.

I will showcase Emerald Envy on Friday so come back to see what I have created.
I would love you to leave comments, good or bad and also for you to follow me on my Stampin' Up! journey.

All the products listed are available from me as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and their are links in my side bar.

Thanks for popping bye
Christine

I joined Stampin' Up! in March 2015 and it has taken me to another level in crafting. I love how everything matches from Ink, Cardstock, Ribbon, Embellishments. They are bringing out a new yearly Catalogue in June (it is gorgeous) so if you would like to receive a copy you can either send me a message via the link on here or order online through my online shop (just click the link)

Their Stamp Sets are beautiful too and you can buy them in either Wood, Clear or Photopolymer in most cases.

This is the card I created for a friends 70th Birthday which was yesterday.



I used a selection of stamps which are, Timeless Textures, Awesomely Artistic, Birthday Blooms and Papillion Potpourri, these are all available in the new Catalogue.
My choice of card colours are Whisper White and Wisteria Wonder  plus Wisteria Wonder and Smokey Slate Ink.
The Butterflies are punched out using the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches, again in the new catalogue. Beautiful Pearls create the butterflies body and on the flower.
