Simply Fabulous

After having gone through another lack of mojo, being sick doesn't help the creative juices at all, I suddenly found some inspiration in the new Stampin Up colours and stamp sets.
The following 4 cards are the result.
For them I've used the following:

  • Calypso Coral card and ink pad & marker pen
  • Gumball Green Card and Ink pad & marker pen
  • Whisper White card
  • Tempting Turquoise ink pad
  • Baked Brown sugar ink pad & marker pen
  • Basic Black
  • Tangerine Tango ribbon
  • Doily Lace edge punch
  • Blossom Punch
  • 1 1/4" circle punch
  • Fine Feathers stamp set
  • Million & one
  • Serene Silhouettes stamp set
  • Simply Sketched stamp set
  • Flowering Flourishes stamp set (used for the insert in one of the cards)
  • Mixed Bunch stamp set
  • Double sided tape
  • Dimensionals
  • Stampin Trimmer (THE BEST EVER)
  • We are Memory Keepers Crop-A Dile Corner Chompers
The Calypso Coral cards are tent fold, one Gumball Green is A5 landscape the other is A5 Portrait

The only reason I used Tangerine Tango Ribbon is because I've not yet bought any of the new in colour ribbons, so I didn't have Calypso Coral available, I thought it was close enough to use and gives a slight contrast in colour, the scanning of the cards has however, made the difference really noticeable where in ordinary daylight it's far less noticeable. 

I'm so pleased my mojo has returned, I hate struggling to create! and these 4 cards owe nothing to anyone elses work.

Thank you for visiting today, hope you come back soon.,

Hugs and Happy Crafting

I am so glad to see that you are posting cards Beth. Was thinking you should have come over to Kaye's to get the mojo going. These are are all lovely. Really like that 'Fabulous' stamp and the leaf on the last card.

Beth, these are so striking - you will have others CASing you now! Love the sympathy card in particular (but I really like green).
