Stampin' Up! Congratulations card using Mixed Drinks, Oh So Eclectic and Fabulous Flamingo stamp set

Hello stampers!

I have a bright and happy card for you today. I had a few stamped bits and pieces left over from my Thailand swaps, so used them on this card in a different way. 

Tickled pink 2

My card base is Berry Burst and I have used Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Basic Black. The greeting is from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set. I love this greeting! That's the Oh My Stars embossing folder used on the banner layer. You can link to any of the products used today using the links at the end of the post.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You and Lemon Lime Twist with Embossing Paste

It was a grey drizzly day in Melbourne today (it's late winter here), so I needed a bright card to show you. 

I think this one works! I find myself coming back often to use this happy image from the Beautiful You stamp set. It's applicable to so many different cards  I think, but especially congratulations cards.

My colour combination is Lemon Lime Twist and Pacific Point. I added some texture to the Lemon Lime Twist layer by using some embossing paste coloured with Lemon Lime Twist re-inker, and then used the diamond mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. My image is coloured using the watercolour pencils. I used a greeting for the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set which fits beautifully in the Classic Label Punch.

Stampin' Up! New Catalogue Sneak Peek: Fabulous Flamingo

Had a fun day stamping with a couple of friends last week, and got to play with a new soon to be released Stampin' Up! stamp set called Fabulous Flamingo. It will be in the new 2017/18 Annual Catalogue which I am distributing to my customers this month (click HERE to see how to get yours).

I'm not sure where my love affair with Flamingos began, but I totally love them. I haven't seen many in real like, but they are so graceful in pictures and they seem to be very on trend in beach wear, clothing, stationery etc.

This is the second Flamingo themed set we have (the other being Pop of Paradise which is more of a solid stamp). I really like that this new one has many different options, with three layers to the stamp. I have stamped the darker pink in Flirty Flamingo ink (I find it works best to stamp that one first), the lighter pink is Pink Pirouette and the outline in black. My background layer and water is stamped in Smoky Slate.

First Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop - Global Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Unite!

Pink Blog Hop

Welcome to the first ever Ultimate Pink Blog Hop – a collection of ideas from Stampin’ Up! demonstrators all over the globe featuring shades of pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I'm really pleased to be a part of this fabulous tribute.

For my pink projects, I have made a set of cards featuring my favourite pink right now, Sweet Sugarplum.

I have created my background by sponging the Sweet Sugarplum ink onto 3 different patterns in the Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Confetti Celebration Shaker Cards

Shaker cards are so lovely to receive, and the beautifully coloured Fancy Frost sequins from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue, make very pretty shaker cards. Here are some cards I put together to congratulate some Art With Heart Team members recently.

I chose my colours to coordinate with the Fancy Frost sequins, so I have used Silver, Whisper White. Sweet Sugarplum and Pool party. The gorgeous silver ribbon I have used is from the Glitter Ribbon combo pack in the Holiday Catalogue.
