Sentiment from So Very Grateful set in my last post.

So Very Grateful

This card is another from our Bloomin' Buds shoebox morning and was Jenny's card.

The card uses all the 2012-14 in colours which I love.

Embossing folder is one from the recent sale-a-bration but it will be in the new main catalogue.

Flowers and sentiment are from 'so very grateful' in the current seasonal catalogue.  We cut the image out and coloured in with the Stampin' Write markers then 3D'd a couple of the flowers before adding pearls.

Oval framelit in coastal cabana pricked with the occasions paper piercing pack.

Sentiment punched out with modern label punch and some of the gold baker's twine from the seasonal added before mounting.

A spot of grunge

About time I started to share some more cards made with these lovely Stampin' Up products.

Today's uses a favourite set of mine - 'Gorgeous Grunge'.  It's so versatile.
At Bloomin' Buds today we all took a 'shoebox', effectively a card we had made with the kit for everyone else to make the same so we came away with several new cards.

This card (even the colour scheme) came from spaggysstampingworld, I'll try it in other colours another day, it's surprising how a colour change makes a card look completely different.

Supplies used:
Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge & Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card: Crumb Cake & Very Vanilla
Inks: Soft Suede, Early Espresso & Bermuda Bay
Punches: Elegant Butterfly, 1 3/4" Circle, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle

Round in circles!

Only one day left before the next set of weekly deals!!

This is another fun sample I've made.

The base card is baked brown sugar and then I've used the other in-colors of pistachio pudding, strawberry slush, crisp cantaloupe & coastal cabana for the circles.

The circles are cut with all the different size Stampin' Up punches - there are 7 to collect!

Each circle has then been put through the Big Shot in a different embossing folder.

Sentiment is from my now much used set 'Teeny Tiny Sentiments' and cut out with Word Window punch.

A bright, fun card for something different.

A quick post today so you know I am still here.

Keep tuned this week for some Stampin' Up! news!!

These are a few little crackers I made for my recent parties to show another use for the envelope punch board - it is such a versatile tool and I have barely scratched the surface with it.

These crackers are made with the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack from the current seasonal catalogue - a bargain at £6.25 if I do say so myself.

A few score lines in one of the pieces and a few punches later and you have these - I think they are great and ideal little favours or place settings.

Don't forget to pop back this week (& get saving in the meantime)!

Whooo's looking at you?!

Apologies again for the delay in blogging - hope you all got the petal parade set, banner punch and stamps (and any other sale-a-bration goodies you fancied!).

This is another sample card I made recently featuring the brilliant hardwood stamp which was popular at the recent parties.
The base card uses naturals ivory card and I've used some baked brown sugar stamped on with early espresso for the hardwood.

The fab owls feature a 'stomach' of paper from the sale-a-bration freebie and are peeking through a circle surrounded by a scalloped punched circle.  So cute.

I do love the owl punch and will have another play with it soon.
