Well here I am again and so excited at the launch of SU's new mini cataglogue, you can view it on the right hand side, just click on the front cover and prepare to be amazed. Below are a few cards I have made using some of the new products.
This card was made with Baby Blossoms a two step stamp set, there are 18 beautiful little stamps in this set and you can create the most amazing images from single flowers to huge bouquets. The tex comes from Occasional Greetings.
I made two one for Peters mum and one for my mum.
Card: Rose Red and Whisper White and Pink Pirouette
Inks: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Always Artichoke and Basic Black
Again from the Mini Catalogue this card was made using the stamp set Strength and Hope, for every one of these stamp sets sold Stampin'up! will donate £1.00 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I really love this set, the butterfly is beautiful;
Card: Pear Pizaz, Peach Parfait and Whisper White
Inks: Pear Pizaz and Peach Parfait
I stamped the butterflies with Peach Parfait ink and then went round the edges with my Pear Pizaz Wright Marker.
The Stamp on this card 'Sail Away' is a single stamp, also from the mini, its great as there are several stamps which are great for mens cards this year.
I used the scallop border punch along the edges and some navy 1/4" grosgrain ribbon to try and make it look a bit wavy, did I succeed? mmm not quite sure.
Card: Night of Navy and Whisper White
Inks: Night of Navy
Once again again again this card is also made using a new stamp set from the Mini Catalogue it is called 'Clearly for You' there are 12 stamps in the set and every one is beautiful.
For my birthday Kay gave me amost beautiful card which took me back in time, to my first Christmas as an SU demonstrator. I had made a card called a Secret Slider. I went on a hunting spree and found it, for some reason I had abadonned it not quite finished. I set too and finised it and went onto make this one below for my counsins 40th Birthday.
Card: Concord Crush, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White

The HAPPY BIRTHDAY was from the level 1 hostess set Afterthoughts.
The two cards below are made using the faux silk method which I think gives a loverly soft effect to the image.
