ILWS JUNE Blog Hop !!NEW COLOURS!!

!!NEW COLOURS!!
!!BLOG HOP!!

WOWEE!!! There are certainly some talented people out there!! If you are taking part in the In Love With Stamping BlogHOP, then you have come to my blog from BLUE JELLY... I don't know how I'm going to follow Victoria's lovely creations.. but I'll give it my best shot!

I am so pleased that we were able to purchase 3 of the new colours that are being introduced in October. I've had great fun playing with them, but it's such a shame that the polka dot ribbon OR the design series paper will not be coming back in October.. That's why we're making the most of them now.. and using them before they run out of stock - so if you like what you see and are the kind of person to WANT it NOW!! Let me know!! Because before you know it, it'll all be out of stock!

Here's my first card, using Rich Razzleberry & Soft Suede inks & cardstock. I've been experimenting with a new technique, using the embossing powder and daubers to cover Whisper White cardstock. I'll be highlighting this technique and how I achieved this look later in the week.

The second 6"x6" card is based on some cards that my eldest received for her birthday, I was intrigued how I could achieve this look & after a lot of experimenting (again) I was pleasantly happy with the outcome.


This is a take on my class that I did this month at my church.  I love this sweet album made with envelopes, I used the Carousel Notes envelopes, the Chocolate Chip compliments ALL of the new colours so well. I got this idea from my upline Jenny Moors (who in turn got the tutorial from a US demo Jan Tink)
Main Purse Album


And inside..........
Well, that's all from me, next on the Blog Hop is KEREN her work is so lovely !! You'll be in for a treat!! HAVE FUN!!
