10 July 2013 – Going Fruity!!

Well the new catalogue has been out for a week now and it is full of lots of fabulous new stamp sets, designer series paper and new colours!!

I love the names of the new in colours, especially Crisp Cantaloupe. I wanted to show case the new in colours at my catalogue launch last weekend, so I did a bit of stalking on Pinterest!! I found this lovely card by Marisa Gunn, which also highlighted the Soho Subway DSP.

I was lucky enough to receive the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set at Convention in May, which is great for doing splotches that look even. I don’t know about you but sometimes random splotches just don’t work for me!! I also used the Label Love Stamp set which matches the new Artisan label punch. (Love matching punches!!)

I also wanted to share this card that I found on Pinterest here. It reminded me of the Cathedral Window quilt that my mum made years ago. This was a fun card to make. I punched 9 1 1/4″ circles and did a card board 1″ square punch which I used as a template for folding up the edges.

I used the new Smoky Slate ink for the sentiments which are from the Happy Day stamp set.

I’ve been able to have a play with some of the SAB products and they are all so nice!! My team has been doing a swap and I’ve been receiving gorgeous cards in the mail (so much better than bills!!). I was inspired by the talented US demo, Mary Fish (check out her blog here).

I used the 1″ square punch to punch out the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper. I did two squares using the new Vine Street embossing folder (I love embossing!!). I then stamped the birthday sentiment from the Pretty Petites stamp set and punched it out using the Petite curly label punch. It is one of the cutest punches ever!!! I used the Sycamore Street ribbon and button pack as well.

I hope the girls in the team like their swap!!
