Happy Hanukkah

Hanukkah commences on the 27th November this year and I was asked to create a card for a friend. I gladly accepted. I loved how the colours of the Winter Frost Designer Paper Stack go with the silver embossing and marina mist cardstock.
What a fabulous idea that Stampin' Up came up with. Card front sized Designer Paper. The best part is there are two paper stacks and you get 48 pages of it. One in gorgeous blue hues and in the other in more traditional xmas colours. They both can be found in the current seasonal catalogue. There are many terrific products in the seasonal catalogue. Make sure you click on the link and check them out. Hope you like my card!

Loving the 2013-2014 In-Colours

There are just so many things that I love about Stampin' Up but the one that I want to talk about today is the wonderful way that all the products co-ordinate. Not only do you have the range of products in the same colour you have family groups of colours that co-ordinate so well with each other. This card that I am going to show you demonstrates this in the new In-Colours in the current catalogue.This card has been cased from a U.S. demonstrator who received it in a card swap so the original creator is not known. I really love the use of many embossing folders as well as the fabulous use of one of the most versatile stamp set Papillion Potpurri.

Well Halloween has come and gone for another year. Quite uneventful really. Here in Australia it is hit and miss who celebrates Halloween. I got excited as there are alot of children in my street. Bought lollies ready for the onslaught of excited children and would you believe it not one single door knock! Anyway in the spirit of things I created a halloween card for a friend who I know loves all things black, creepy and spooky. She also loves cats. So quite a fitting card I hope. I really love the colour combo.
Thanks for dropping by, Cherie
