Stampin’ Up! new catalogue spotlight- Sea of Textures cards!

Now that it’s June the new catalogue is here!

Introducing the lovely Tranquil Textures suite, with fun stamps and matching framelits, delightful ‘sprinkles’ embellishments and fab papers to compliment each other!

That quickly lil octopus is a feature of the stamp set (and so easy to cut with the framelits, but those lovely framelits can also give you a cool beachy card!

Or why not play with a fun technique? The baby wipe technique sometimes gives a mottled effect so its ideal for our octopi friends!

I’ll have a tutorial for this technique up shortly, but for now I’d love to see your Sea themed creations~

Farewell Tutti Fruiti stamps~

I’ve had a heap of fun playing with the Tutti Fruiti suite of products, but they are one of the things that will be retiring this Thursday to make way for the new 2018-19 Stampin’ Up! catalogue…

It is such a bright, fun set, and I’ve enjoyed trying out some creative cards… The outline stamps in this set make it great for a magic card!

A great set for a fruity friend! Even simple cards are super cute!

For your last chance to get your hands on these products, head here before May 31st

A retirement hop with ESAD

It’s a bittersweet time of year, with the arrival of a new catalogue in June, we get lots of lovely new stamps, but this also means some old friends have to leave us…

The ESAD team is getting together to send them off in style! Whether you are starting the hop here, or continuing the rounds, welcome, and enjoy!

For my final farewell project I’ve chosen an close to my heart. Im excited that Picture Perfect Birthday stamps are carrying over, but I’m gonna miss the delightful matching paper! I had to make a whole collection of lil cards to show some of them off!

I’ll be very sorry to say goodbye to this paper, as well as the woven ribbon, but if you’d like the chance to get your hands on it, get in quickly here before the end of May!

Now, hop along to Fi’s post to check out her creations!
