One more twisted easel card to show – well there are others but this one I need to show you now as the Evergreen stamp set discontinues at the end of August when the new Holiday catalogue goes live. ( Got my copy in the mail today and I don’t know where to start looking there are so many lovely products in it!!!) Any way back to my card. We made this one in my recent card classes and it was very popular with my stamping ladies.
I love the fir tree in this stamp set. For this card I have stamped it using Always Artichoke ink and done three generations of Stampin’Off, That is I stamped the first tree in the middle then stamped it again to one side with out reinking and then again on the other side with out reinking. Then using my Stamp-a-ma-jig I stamped over the trees using an Illuminate ink pad to create a subtle sheen/shimmer like snow over them. Love the effect!
Card stock is Old Olive, Baked brown sugar and Whisper White.

Paper is from last catalogue “Good Cheer” I think its called.
Finished off with Gumball Green stitched ribbon and silver Glimmer brads.
I love, love this fabulous new colour from Stampin’Up! – Bermuda Bay. It will become my new fav colour to create with I think!
This card below I had as one of my make & takes at my recent catalogue launch. It is such a quick and easy card to create using a tried and true layout.
I’ve combined Bermuda Bay with another new colour that has been added to the Stampin’Up! colour palette – Crushed Curry.

I was really pleased with this card when I had completed it. I loved how the overall effect was so soft and lovely, very feminine.
The leaves were stamped off first onto scrap paper and the second and third impressions stamped onto the card pieces. I’m loving the new colour Smoky Slate, it stamps up looking almost silver.

Yesterday I had my Open House to launch the new 2013-2014 Annual Stampin’Up! catalogue. My customers could come along and have an afternoon creating cards I had designed using new products from the catalogue. There was loads of fun and chatter going on, it was a great afternoon.
This card was one I created to showcase the new In Colours (my gelati colours I call them!).
The card base is Baked Brown Sugar. That colour ink was used to stamp the Creative Elements image on the Naturals White card matt.
Starting from the top butterfly we have Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.
The smaller punched butterfly has been stamped with a one of the flower stamps from the set Everything Eleanor. Words are from Loving Thoughts.
