For the Friday Sketchers challenge I thought I would take the opportunity to make use of some new products that will be launched by Stampin' Up! on Wednesday 1st April. There is a new mini catalogue coming out and I got a couple of things on pre-order.
The cardstock used is Sage Shadow for the main card and scalloped circle, with Barely banana for matting and the sentiment. The gorgeous little Bambi image is from the Forest Friends stamp set and I punched him out with the SU Scalloped Circle punch. The ribbon is Old Olive grosgrain by SU and the sentiment is from the new Oval All set and is punched out using the new Scalloped Oval punch.
For the Sketch Saturday challenge I again decided to make use of my new SU sets. The cardstock is from the Soft Subtles range, Sage Shadow and Barely Banana, with the scalloped circle in Old Olive. The owl and leaves/trees are from the Forest Friends stamp set. The ribbon strip is Old Olive grosgrain and the flowers, brads & pearls are from the SU Pretties kit. Finally the sentiment is from the new Oval All stamp set and is punched out using the new Scalloped Oval punch.
The Sugar Bowl challenge was to make a Spring themed card. I think of flowers and butterflies when I think of Spring so I have used backing paper full of butterflies on my card. This was a free gift with making Cards mag and is designed by Nancy Watt. The Pen Pal image from Sugar Nellie was watercoloured and then I inked the edges with a Promarker and mounted her on foam pads. I popped some little flowers at each corner of the image. The sentiment is from the new Stampin' Up! set Oval All and I have punched out the sentiment with the Scalloped Oval SU punch.I also inked around the sentiment with the Promarker.
If you would like to get your hands on any of these new products, give me a shout and I can order them for you.
thanks for looking
