Summer Mini Love

Things I LOVE in the new Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalogue:

  • Scallop Edge Punch - no more using my corner rounder for scallop edges YAY!
  • 1" Double-Stitched Ribbon - I thought this ribbon might be too wide & therfore hard to tie in a knot or bow, but I am happy to report that it is not. It is soooooo nice, I just love it & have already used almost a whole roll of the Rose Red
  • Bali Breeze Double Sided Papers - the colours are just gorgeous & I'm having lots of fun using them

I really love just about everything in the catalogue really, but for the purpose of this post I will only list the items I actually used on the cards :-)

These cards were for a recent card swap I was involved in. I couldn't decide which colour I liked best, so made both

I coloured the word in using my Taken with Teal marker, then covered with 2 way glue & Dazzling Diamonds.

I also challenged myself to make a scrapbook page using a white background & am really happy with how it turned out. I used the same colours as the cards & have done the wording the same - although you can't see the diamonds in the pic.
Stampsets: Big on Spring, In the Spotlight (hostess set)
Papers: Whisper White, Taken with Teal, Regal Rose, Bali Breeze DSP
Inks: Rose Red, Taken with Teal, Versamark, Black Staz On

Alana, love your use of the bali breeze papers and the white cardstock background - the photo is perfect with these colours too.
