We're All A-Buzz!!!

There is great excitement in the SU demo world at the moment as many of us received our sneak peek copies of the new Autumn-Winter mini catalogue. I was one of the lucky ones and I have to say that I LOVE IT and can't wait to pre-order and get my hands on some of the gorgeous new goodies!

Spoiler alert! Don't read on if you want the contents of the new mini to be a complete surprise!

One of the new items in the mini is the introduction of three new In Colours - yes, that's right! we are getting three of the current US colours; Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede. They will be available in A4 cardstock, ink pads, ink refills and polka dot ribbon. Many of my customers and friends love the gorgeous rich tones of razzleberry, so I know they will be thrilled to hear it's coming! The suede is a wonderfully neutral tone that goes with almost any other colour and will also be great for blokes, and the melon will delight pink lovers of all ages!

So today (as I am a lucky girl and have some of these colours already!) I would like to show you some simple cards made in the three new colours. The first one features Melon Mambo and I've broken open my new Happy Heart set. The colour is more vibrant IRL, the photo doesn't really do it justice.

Next is Soft Suede with a few touches of Melon Mambo. I don't have the ink pads, only the markers, so it was a real challenge to colour the Forever Flowers wheel with just a marker! Just as well it's not a jumbo wheel LOL!!!

And last but not least Upsy Daisy looking beautiful in Rich Razzleberry with a tiny touch of Soft Suede.

Thanks for the sneek peak! I was so disappointed with the Summer mini didn't even bother to order anything. The salebration sets are nice but I don't like having to order a certain amount to get a set.Looking forward to the
1st April I'll start saving now. Thanks again glad I found you.

Cute cards - and lovely work. Wonder if that dandelion stamp with the tiny hearts is available in Europe. HMMM must check that - cause I could sure use it for wedding cards. See - another idea in my little head - where to find the time though???
