I've just finished this months tutorial and will be emailing it out this later today. This months tutorial is step by step instructions to make a gratitude journal. I love these. Even when you think you are having a bad day you can remind yourself of all the good in your life. To receive the tutorials, just register top right.
Made these cards last night using some of the sets from the new Stampin' Up! Summer Mini catalogue which starts selling tomorrow. If you are a regular customer or you responded to the last 'who wants one?' call they are in the mail. Otherwise email me and I will send you one for free. It's yummy!
This card features the Carte Postale set, as well as an old favourite Petal Prints. These new Enchante double sided designer series papers are really pretty. Soft and feminine with lovely plums and greens.
This one is a bit of a contrast to the last, and again is a mix of a new stamp set Silhouette Stems (used on the kraft cardstock) with Kanji from the main catalogue. The silhouette stems looked very Asian to me so I thought would work well with Kanji. I have used Cranberry Crisp as the red cardstock. I love these colours together.
I must say I love Stampin' Up!'s punches! They generally design the sentiments so that they fit inside their pumches, which makes life VERY easy for cardmakers. In the card above I have used the samll oval punch (which also fits perfectly in the oval label holders) and this card used the word window (which is what I also used in the card above to make the tab top left on the image.
Stay well and happy,
