About Me

My photo
I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator for almost two years now, and when I signed up it was just for the starter kit and discount on products........ I never imagined it would snowball into being a business like it has. I am a new Mummy to my little boy, Isaac, who is almost four months old now. I am spending my maternity leave enjoying watch him grow up, becoming his own little person, and also trying to build my business up. Stampin' Up! have amazing products and I would love to share my crafting passion with as many people as possible. I am always putting through orders, so if you need anything, or just want some information or advise, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you want to try before you buy, then check out my classes and get booked on.

Colour Combo Card

Oh my goodness, I can't believe it's Tuesday already!  I was just about to write Monday and realised that had already passed.............  it's really true that time goes faster as you get older!

Today I have a card to show you that I made for the Colour Q Challenge

Lucky Limeade is a new In Colour from Stampin' Up! that they USA had in their new catalogue.  It's yet to arrive in the UK, so I substituted with Old Olive which is similar but slightly darker.

I used Basic Gray for the card base.  The second layer is Textured Whisper White which I have embossed using the Big Shot and Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  Before putting the card into the embossing folder I used a Brayer to add Bashful Blue ink to show on the debossed side.
This has been mounted with edges in Tempting Turquoise punched with the Eyelet Border Punch.
The sentiment is from So Happy For You (Retired SAB) inked in Tempting Turquoise and stamped into the Four Frames image already stamped in Old Olive ink.  This was cut out with the Decorative Label Punch and edged in Tempting Turquoise card.  I popped it onto the center of the card with Dimensionals, and added two Old Olive Designer Buttons to the embossed background.

I kind of feel like there's something missing - it's not quite right!  Maybe I'll have another go tomorrow :o)
