Touches of Texture

When I received this set on the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip on board the cruise ship around the Mediterranean this year, I knew that I would love being creative with it.  

The Touches of Texture set contains so many beautiful images that just work so well with each other.  It was lovely that we got to stamp on the trip and nice to have the make and take cards designed for us to complete, and even better that we got to take the stamps away with us!

I used a colour combo of

Tip Top Taupe
Sweet Sugarplum
Whisper White

Both colours are from the latest set of In Colours

It's always hard to have a favourite product, but I do really love the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies, they are just sooooo useful!

My "Hello" greeting was stamped using the Labeler Alphabet stamps, an amazing set of individual alphabet letters that enable you to spell any word(s) that you desire.

Something for Baby

I recently had a couple of friends give birth to a new baby girl so I decided to make good use of my time and create two cards the same.  I had used this sketch for a recent card and decided to save time deciding on a layout I would just change the stamped images and greeting.

My colour combo is Sweet Sugarplum, Tip Top Taupe teamed with Whisper White.

I used the stamp set called "Something for Baby", a really cut set that includes this gorgeous pram image.

The greeting "peek a boo to someone new" is from the stamp set "Something to Celebrate"

I stamped the pram image with Tip Top Taupe ink and hand cut it out, layering over some Sweet Sugarplum Designer Series Paper (DSP) and plain cardstock in the same colour.  

I used the Elegant Dots embossing folder for the background to give it some texture.

I added an enamel Heart Shape to the pram, I love how our embellishments co-ordinate.

Bringing you some Good Cheer!

The launch of the Stampin' Up! Autumn/Winter catalogue last month has really sparked my festive creativity.  Now I know it's not for all of you, you don't like to start until at least mid November but in my eyes, the earlier the better, things get so hectic as we near Christmas that to have your cards ready and prepared for sending by the beginning of December is a good plan which leaves the rest of the month to finishing off your shopping and wrapping!

So today I'm sharing a really simple card, created using a stamp set called "Stitched with Cheer".  I love, love, love the snowflakes in this set, there are three in total and love how you could just create a whole background with these stamps alone.

I have teamed Whisper White with Mint Macaron and a smidge of gold.  Now I wasn't really a gold person, personally found Silver more to my taste but Gold has grown on me of late.

I recently had a good tidy up of my workspace and invested in a few gold accessories to make my desk look pretty rather than messy lol!  Maybe I will share a picture??

I created a simple tag using a rectangle of whisper white cardstock then snipped off the corners to create a tag shape.  I added some of the gorgeous Gold twine to make a bow then used my handy Cookie Cutter Punch to cut some teeny little hearts from Gold Glimmer paper.  I have to say the new Precision Glue is perfect for sticking down tiny punch outs or embellishments.

This stamp set "Stitched with Cheer" has been designed to co-ordinate with the co-ordinating Project Kit, see below

and I also love that the little holly and berries can be punched out using the Holly Berry Builder Punch.  I just love how Stampin' Up! make it easy for us to craft and produce professional looking projects.
