At last I can share with you some of the projects I have been busy preparing over the past few weeks with some of the wonderful new stamp sets from Stampin' Up! I have so many cards made up I wasn't sure which set to show first!!!
This new set is called Ornate Flowers, there are 4 beautiful designs in the set which I think have an oriental appeal, best of all you can buy this set in a wood mounted version or the fabulous new clear mount - perfect if you are trying to save on your storage space!! I have used the lovely new Melon Mambo card and ink for my design, layering it with basic grey, I punched a gorgeous double eyelet boarder across the top of the card, layering it over some basic black. The centre flower has been made with another stamp from the set but I have carefully covered the inked area with crystal effects to give it a glossy raised finish, punching out the flower and layering it onto a scallped circle with diamensionals.
I had a class making the Pocket Silhouettes cards and mini gift box last night, so now I must crack on with those Christmas designs!! It was a lovely evening and as ever the chatting and party nibbles afterwards combined with browsing the new catalogue lasted late into the evening!!
