Getting Excited...

Oh, I am getting soooooo excited, the new Stampin' Up! catalogue is coming out soon and I cant wait!

The current catalogue runs until the end of September and the list of retiring stamps and products comes out on the 1st September - its always an exciting time but this year is even more so as we know that lots of colours will be going.  But they are making way for new cardstock and ink colours so the suspense of actually seeing the new catalogue is almost unbearable!

I have been busy with work and things this week, but heres a photo of the card we made last Saturday - the one at the back of the photo that you couldnt see (I would never make a David Bailey would I?).

When I showed the ladies the card we were making and that we would be scrunching and tearing the card, the look of terror on their faces was hilarous.  In the end, I explained that they could do different versions - using less 'traumatic' techniques like using the edge punches instead of tearing and distressing the edge which calmed some of them down.

This one is slightly less distressed and just involved tearing the edges of the Regal Rose and Old Olive cardstock.

To make the layered flower, I stamped two large flowers from the Vintage Vogue set in Bravo Burgundy onto Whisper White card and then stamped between the petals of one flower with the small leaf in Old Olive.  Then I stamped a small flower in Regal Rose and cut them all out, leaving a thin white boarder around each image.  They were then layered up using Dimentionals and a brad secured them through the centre.  I got the idea from Jenny Moore who makes some gorgeous stuff.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the extended weekend - hopefully, I will be able to do a bit of crafting tomorrow.  But bob back on Weds and I should be able to show you the list of retiring items - they wont be available after the end of september so it will your the last chance to order them.

  1. Thanks for showing the card at the back. Funny isn't it how difficult it can be to tear and scrunch the card, lol. So sweet of you to offer them a couple of options.
