Happy Birthday Tracy

This is a swing card I made for my friend's birthday earlier this month. I thought I'd try a little bit of grunginess, and crumpled up the main sentiment to distress it a bit. I used Sahara Sand and Rich Razzleberry card stock, I just love those colours. I stamped the sentiment from Vintage Verses, one of the sale-a-bration stamp sets that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order of £45.

Core'dinations Card Stock

I thought I'd tell you about some of the lovely products available in the new Spring/Summer catalogue. I'm starting with the gorgeous Core'dinations Card Stock, you can find it on page 12. It's available in three colours and costs £6.25 a pack.

129321 Pool Party
129322 Primrose Petals
129320 Real Red

One side is textured and the other side is smooth. There are 12 sheets of 12" x 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm) in a pack. You can run it through an embossing folder and sand back the raised edges to reveal the inside layer. It can also be torn or distressed to expose the inside monochromatic colour.

If you would like some Core'dinations, but, don't want 12 sheets of just one colour. How about taking part in a share? For £10 (£12.50 posted) you can have 4 sheets of each colour and the Stampin' Sanding System.

Please email me if you wish to take advantage of this offer -

Thank You Gift

I've used the sale-a-bration Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set to make a little thank you gift for my Stamp Club ladies. I hope they like it. I've used Gumball Green, Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple from the In Colors and packaged up some of the Print Poetry DSP Paper Stack for them. I love this stamp set, I'm sure I'll use it again and again.
