Beautiful Bunch

This card has also used crumb cake as a base.

The gorgeous embossing folder is called Lovely Lace and the flowers are from the stamp set Beautiful Bunch - with matching punch no less!

The flowers are in the new colour Hello Honey.

The leaves were cut using the Flower Fair Framelits in Mossy Meadow and some ribbon to match is under the sentiment from the new Hey You set.

My blogging has been a little shabby recently but I am now officially having a week off but have to share some new ideas with you when I come back!!

Don't forget to keep checking the weekly deals - the fab cupcake punch is on offer this week!

Flower Patch

Today's card uses the very popular Flower Patch stamp set which has been out of stock since catalogue launch but I finally got my set!

You won't be surprised to hear it comes with a set of matching framelits - I think I will be using this set a lot.

Base card is Crumb Cake with a layer embossed with Decorative Dots embossing folder.

Some gold baker's twine added under the oval framelits - sentiment is also in the stamp set.

Ink colours used:
Hello Honey
Tangelo Twist
Pear Pizzazz
Rose Red
Lost Lagoon
Mossy Meadow

A few pearls to finish off as well!

Razzleberry Roses

Hooray - a card!!

This card came about with trying just to use just framelits, flower dies & sentiments for the project at last Crafty Bunch.

The colours are a little outside of my comfort zone but a combo from the SU colour cards, they are Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie (with the lovely new Mossy Meadow for leaves).

The leaves are from a new set of framelits (Flower Fair) in the catalogue but the matching stamp set has been out of stock from launch which is very disappointing!

Other goodies used:
Decorative Dots embossing folder
Ovals Collection Framelits
Occasions pricking template
Itty Bitty Banners stamp set
Bitty Banners Framelits
Spiral Flower Die
Rhinestone Basic Jewels

More weekly offers available tomorrow and hopefully some more ideas shortly from me!

New goodies

My rather big parcel came today with all the new catalogue goodies I had ordered.  I have quite a few but there is still lots on the wish list.

I went out tonight but had to have a quick play so have made a card for our downline sketch challenge.

I was trying not to go for a black silhouette and am not 100% sure about this yet!

I've used the new colours of Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey for card & ink with some DSP and satin ribbon to match.

The leaves and birds are from a lovely stamp set called World of Dreams and the sentiment (which is a lovely size) is from a set called Hey You - punched out with an oval punch of course.

For your amusement here is a video from the recent training I went to in Telford - a few of us from Jenny's team made the cut!

Give me a shout if you want any goodies or a party!!

Lovely Lace

Today's card is one I made all the components for when I went to Telford.  We weren't allowed to share at the time anyway because it had new product on it but I finally stuck it together today.

This is just a little notecard size again.  The embossed piece of sahara sand card is using a new folder called Lovely Lace - one of the items in my delivery from UPS tomorrow!!

The sentiment is also in a new set called Something to Say and punched out with the Artisan Label punch.

The ever popular Petite Petals used again and finished with a little ribbon and twine.
I will have to make time to preview some cards this week as I have to play with my goodies - it's very exciting.

New Catalogue is here!

Hooray - today is the day the new catalogue goes live.

There are some lovely new products in there - great stamp sets, the gorgeous new in-colours, new punches, the Project Life range and the launch of Blendabilities.

To start with there are only 6 colour sets (plus the skin tone set) of the Blendabilities (alcohol based pens) you can order so check with me before ordering.
Check out a video here and when I get my delivery I shall share some more samples.

For those with a catalogue the flower patch stamp set is already on back order - I'm not surprised as that was top of my list.

In case you really wished you had bought some of the Christmas goodies in the Autumn/Winter seasonal last year (the Festive Flurry Framelits for example) the carryover available here is while stocks last until 27th August.

Best I crack on with more tempting samples.
