A Touch of New Colour

There was great excitement at my place yesterday morning as my pre-order goodies from the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogue arrived on my doorstep!

I managed to get the packs all opened and drool over them for a while before I had to head off to work (gotta do the grind to pay for all the new things, lol), but I couldn't wait to play once I got home. For my first card I've used two retiring stamp sets with three new in colours and kept it fairly simple.

LOVING Wisteria Wonder already! I know lots of my ladies are going to be thrilled with this gorgeous shade.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Bella Toile, Friends 24/7
  • card - Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Whisper White
  • ink - black StazOn, wisteria wonder, calypso coral, lucky limeade
  • punches - 32 mm circle, 35 mm circle, scallop trim border
  • other - vintage wallpaper embossing folder, dimensionals, blender pen, sponge dauber
Of course I had to have another play and this time I was inspired by a card by Heather Telford. Heather does gorgeous one or two layer cards with sponging and masking and it was the colours and sponging on her card that inspired me. (You can visit her from the link on my blog list.)

Materials used:

  • stamps - Inspired by Nature, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
  • card - lucky limeade, whisper white, pool party
  • other - stamp-a-ma-jig, dimensionals, sponges

Thanks for stopping by.
