My new Stampin Up! Goodies have arrived.......

I am sooooo excited. I am a big fan of Stampin Up! products and they have launched 3 new colours and craft supplies to match.

I have now taken delivery of a sample pack as shown in the photo and can honestly say I am really impressed. The Rich Razzleberry is my absolute favourite (move over Old Olive!!!!!). For fabulous card designs and more information on the Stampin Up! range please check out this excellent blog by Stampin Up! Demonstrator Michelle Last -

I cannot wait to get crafting and already have some ideas in mind so please check back over the next few days to see what I have made

New Card Design - Fathers Day Card

With Fathers Day fast approaching I thought I had better start to make a few masculine cards.

I struggle with cards for boys as most of my stash is geared for girls, but I was pleased with how this card turned out.

For the image I used the Daisy & Dandelion Gone Fishing stamp and then used my new promarkers to add a touch of colour. My old favourites "Old Olive" cardstock & ribbon from Stampin Up! finished of the project. I hope you enjoy...

NEW ATC Designs - What do you think?

Yesterday I finally gave in and turned my hand to ATC cards. I really enjoy making cards and thought it was about time I tried something new! These are very addictive so will definitely will be making more.....
As you can see my favourite colours are still brown, old olive & white - somethings never change -but I thought they worked well with the toppers I found at the bottom of my craft draw.

I have been having so much fun with my new Stampin Up! stamps!!!!! My favourite colour combo at the minute is brown. old olive & white - not summery I know but very elegant......

Here is my latest card made using the Stampin Up! Whimsical Words stamp. I also love using the cuttlebug dots embossing folder which is great for so many projects.
