Happy Birthday and Stampin Up

Hi Everyone,
Well I’ve done my dash with “using it up”. I went shopping with a Stampin Up Catalogue!! These new colours and  papers were just to die for and I couldn’t resist the temptation.


I’ve made this birthday card Using Up at least some of my old Stampin Up supplies, such as the Happy Birthday and the Fast & Fabulous flowers stamps. I did use my new ink colour – Calypso Coral from the 2011-2013 In Colour range, and a little soft suede on the flower outlines.

The papers are called Everyday Enchantment, this is the front and back of one design. 
There are a couple of other new things on this card too. First of all, the ribbon border punch, then the little frame is an SU embossing folder and I’ve cut out the embossed section inside and out. Thirdly, the cardstock – I really like how Stampin Up co-ordinates all the colours, the ink / cardstock / designer paper. 
Everything just goes together beautifully.

Gosh I sound like an advertisement for Stampin Up! lol
There is ONE item on this card that isn’t SU – a little ribbon from my stash!

Seriously though, I’m thinking of joining them and becoming a demonstrator 
– what do you think?

I used the Mojo Monday sketch for the week……turned sideways Smile

I’d also like to enter into the following challenges…
Enjoy and I’ll be back in a day or so with a little diamond fold card for you Smile
In the meantime, feel free to enter my Blog Candy HERE – Thanks.
