Happy New Year!

Well, here we are in 2015 already - can you believe it? Me neither.

My lovely ladies are impatient to start classes again, so this weekend we are playing with new goodies from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues.

Firstly a cheerful birthday card using the oh-so-cute balloon framelits and co-ordinating stamp set, Celebrate Today, which are in the Occasions catty. There is also some dsp to match - that's one of the things I love most about Stampin' Up!

Materials used:

  • stamps - Celebrate Today
  • card - Bermuda bay, crushed curry, calypso coral, whisper white, Birthday Bash dsp
  • inks - crushed curry, mossy meadow, Versamark
  • other - Big Shot, balloon framelits, white bakers twine, dimensionals, clear embossing powder, heat tool

Lotus Blossom is a very popular set from the Sale-a-bration catalogue - and with good reason! It's a three-step photopolymer set and I could not resist trying it out. I wanted the gorgeous flowers to take centre stage, so my card is a clean and simple one which shows off those lotus blossoms to perfection.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Lotus Blossom, unknown retired sentiment
  • card - blushing bride, strawberry slush, whisper white
  • inks - blushing bride, strawberry slush, pistachio pudding, basic grey

Our third card is a fun little number using the On Film framelits paired with the Snapshot single stamp. 

Materials used:
  • stamps - Snapshot
  • card - crisp cantaloupe, basic black, soft sky, whisper white, retired dsp
  • inks - Memento Tuxedo black
  • other - on film framelits, label card thinlits, Big Shot, triple heart punch, 35 mm circle punch, dimensionals, Blendabilities (soft sky and smoky slate), rhinestone, 2-way glue pen
  • non SU - wax paper

I'll be back in a few days with some news and a sneak peek.

Thanks for stopping by.
