New Stamps are coming!

There are lots of new stamp sets in our new catalogue... Heres a couple of cards made with a set called For Father...

Im afraid you'll have to wait to see the rest!

I wasnt keen on this one when I saw it and thats the reason I bought it! I like to challenge myself. The joy of Stampin' Up! products is that you are able to coordinate colours and accessories really easily, even when you are working outside of your 'comfort zone'!

I stamped the images with Basic Grey (its waterproof therefore you can watercolour onto it without it 'bleeding') then coloured-in using the Earth Elements Markers. For a muted colour I 'scribble' a little ink onto the plastic stamp container - then use the Blender Pens to pick up the colour and use on the image. You can then add more intense details using the pens directly on the image...

Colours: Basic Grey & Earth Elements Inks.
Card: Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, Ruby Red, Brocade Blue, Summer Sun.
Bits & Bobs: Spiral Punch, Black Gingham Ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals (for 3d effect).

Im REALLY excited to be going to a BIG training meeting next Friday and will be meeting up with lots of other demos, learning some fun new techniques, making a new project and YES!, GETTING THE NEW CATALOGUE!!!

I may just post some 'teasers' here if you are really nice to me!
Thanks for looking,
