Best of Butterflies and Grab your Greetings


I had a lovely day on Saturday with an Open House Event to launch the fabulous new catalogue. Everyone who came along could complete a couple of quick make'n'takes (a bit squashed at the table!), but I think a good morning was had by all. Further down this post I will show you some cards I made to show my guests on Saturday.

A little bit of news from Stampin Up. Firstly the Best of 25 Years stamp set for July is a lovely set of butterflies, click this link to see the details. These Best of 25 Year stamp sets are available from their launch month until the 31st March 2014 or while stocks last.

And secondly, Grab your Greetings - there are 3 sets of greeting stamps from the new catalogue (they were also in the previous catalogue) which can be purchased at a discount of 25% from now until the 31st July, details of the sets here. I think a greeting is the finishing touch on a card.

Here are three cards I have made using the new Soho Subway Designer papers. Picture quality not that good, lots of shadow, but here goes .....

I have used the new colour Crisp Cantaloupe for the base card and to stamp the sentiment on this one. The swirl is stamped in Early Espresso. The sentiment is a new stamp set Label Love and has a matching punch Artisan Label.

The base card above is a new colour Baked Brown Sugar and the background is CrumbCake embossed with a new folder Modern Mosiac. The embellishments have been made with the Mosaic punch and a small stamp from the Mixed Bunch set.

And on this final card showcasing the Soho Subway papers, the greeting is again from the Label Love stamp set and the Artisan Label punch. The numbers paper has been embossed with the Houndstooth folder and the base card is Island Indigo.

Back soon.
