You Can Count on Me Card

I’ve been trying to use up the remenants of my dsp from the current catalogue before my new catalogue pre-order arrives (fingers crossed its today!). Today I’ve pulled out the Playing With Patterns pack and I’ve paired it the Hey Girlfriend stamp set so I can also pull out my Blends.

I’ve used a colour scheme of Night of Navy, Purple Posy, Highland Heather and a touch of Pool Party.

I’ve added some Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones as a finishing touch.

Case the Catalogue: Stitched Stars Dies

Today I’m casing the catalogue and sharing with you my simplified version of the Stampin’ Up! original found on page 97. I’ve pulled out my Stitched Stars dies as they haven’t seen any love in a while and paired them with the Playing With Patterns DSP.

The original card uses Silver Foil and embossing folders for texture as you can see below.

As you can see I kept to a blue base but used Night of Navy instead of Misty Moonlight and used Costal Cabana and Calypso Coral as my other colours. I left off the twine as I want a quick card which was easy to replicate for when you need those last minute birthday cards.

I also used the Pick A Label Punch (my current favourite product) to stamp my greeting on which came from the Rustic Retreat stamp set.

So which do you prefer the Stampin’ Up! original or my simplified version?

Cabana & Calypso Under My Umbrella Card

I’m hoping today’s card will chase away the rain and bring us some sunshine as I’d love to wear something other than wellies when I’m outisde. Hopefully the bright fun colours of Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral will tempt that sunshine out.

Under My Umbrella Calypso Card (1)

Some punching and a little fussy cutting and you have this cute little card, perfect for sending to someone you haven’t seen for awhile to let them know you care.
