new colour blog hop!


Hello... and many thanks for joining our In Love With Stamping blog hop! If you've been working your way around the 'chain' by following the blog hop links, you'll have joined me from Sandra's blog.
Three new Stampin' Up! colours were launched on 1st May, giving us a small preview of what's to come on 1st October when the colour families will be completely overhauled. The idea of the blog hop was to showcase the three new colours: Melon Mambo, Soft Suede and Rich Razzleberry.

I was hoping to find time to make something more exciting than a couple of mediocre cards... but I'm afraid time disappeared (once again), so a couple of cards it is.  I'm sure the other blog entries will put mine to shame!




Both of my cards were created using the Vintage Vogue stamp set and I've managed to sneak a piece of the new Cottage Wall patterned paper and some Dazzling Diamonds glitter onto each.

The first card has a Melon Mambo base with some Soft Suede and Whisper White cardstock layers... and it also includes some of the brilliant new Melon Mambo dotted ribbon.

For the second card, I've used a base of Rich Razzleberry with some Kraft cardstock. The background was created using the Bella Toile background stamp; I can't see past the SU background stamps - so versatile.

Thanks for visiting my blog today... and I'm sorry my cards were so dull!  :oD  The next stop on the blog hop is Victoria's blog, and you can see the relevant post by clicking here.

These are lovely. I like the use of the Bella Toile background on the second card. Gorgeous. And I know how long the sponging and distressing takes.
