another one...

Another card made with the three new colours and the Vintage Vogue stamp set!  It's very similar to the card shown in my post of 5th May.  I've changed the colours around, but the layout is almost identical.  It looks a bit "cluttered" in the photo, but it looks more subtle when you see it in the flesh... I've overdone it with the contrast in Photoshop!  I absolutely love the new ribbon, particularly in the Rich Razzleberry colour.

Thanks for looking!

studio sketches

Just a quick post... A card made using the Studio Sketches Level 1 hostess set in the mini catalogue.  No ribbon/glitter etc... it was made for a man in his 70s!  I think it looks a bit drab in the photo, to be honest - but it looked much better in real life and I don't like to do anything too fancy with male cards.  I think the patterned paper was from the Ski Slope set which was in the previous mini catalogue; it really didn't look like Christmas paper on the card!

new colours!

Another big delay between blog posts... Sorry.  I must try to remember to post more regularly!

Some exciting news, though... Stampin' Up! has released three new colours! The colours are three of the current American "In Colours": Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede and Melon Mambo.  All three will become part of the new core colour families available from 1st October.

The card shown above was created using all three of the new colours and the Vintage Vogue stamp set from the mini catalogue.  There are ink pads and packs of cardstock which will be carried over to the new annual catalogue on 1st October.  In addition, there are three new rolls of matching dotted ribbon, a new pack of designer series patterned papers (Cottage Wall) and a set of acetate printed sheets, all of which will be available only whilst stocks last.
