Stampin' Up! Elements of Style ....

Today I have a very simple card for you using Stampin' Up! Elements of Style. Isn't this set just gorgeous? I haven't had a chance to order it myself yet, but my lovely downline Rach was heading off on a holiday with her family for 2 weeks and asked me if I would like to babysit her new stamps. Took me a few milliseconds to reply - YES PLEASE!

I especially like this image watercoloured. I had my first play with one of the new Stampin' Up! InColours Blushing Bride in this card as well, and I love it every bit as much as I thought it would. It's a little bit more of a dusty pink than Pretty in Pink, and I can see I will be using it LOTS!

So for this card I have watercoloured using my ink pads and the colours Always Artichoke, Blushing Bride, Regal Rose and Bravo Burgundy. I also used a bit of Sahara Sand around the edges (I think I might have got a bit heavy handed down the bottom - woops :) ). I also used the Sahara Sand Stampin' Write Marker in the Colour Spritzer to add a bit of a speckled effect around the edges. 

The Scallop Trim punch has been used on the edge and I placed a strip of Blushing Bride DSP (from the paper stacks - these are awesome!) underneath to highlight the edge. There's also a bit of this same paper under the greeting.

I really liked how this card turned out, so I made two more using watercoloured images in different ways which I loved as well. These ones went out yesterday to my newsletter subscribers. Just sign up and then send me a quick email if you would like to get this months blog newsletter.

Tonight I'm going to sit down and stamp again. I'm itching to play with Marina Mist and another of Rach's borrowed stamps! Pop back tomorrow to have a look at that one!

Happy stamping,

Claire x
