Perfect blend

This card is made using the stamps from the perfect blend set which is a current stamp set. The papers I used however are retired ones. They are Paisley Petals and Wintergreen. I  stamped the image onto some whisper white and one of the sheets from the Paisley Petals. I then cute out the stamp pieces and paper pieced it to get the pattern on the cup and the top of the lid. The words are also from the Perfect Blend set and they were stamped on Whisper white card stock with Wisteria Wonder, cut out and pieced on the cup. I have used a little piece of ruffled ribbon also in Wisteria Wonder and tied a little knot in it.

I am rather annoyed with myself on this card because I was rushing a little (as you do when you are excited to play with new stamps) and I didn't line up the paper so there is slightly more of the base paper showing on the left but I knew if I tried to correct it I would tear the paper. It's a good job it's ok to make mistakes, and its also a good reminder that crafting is about having fun...not being perfect ;)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges 


I love to create things that are a little different and as soon as I saw the dark and dreary digital set I knew I HAD to have it, I can see this being one of my most used sets :D

I printed the image onto some vellum that I had and made this really cool little lantern, how awesome does that look all lit up?

Something old something new

This is a brand new blog but my first few posts will be some older makes that I am sharing.

I apologize now that not every single thing in these are Stampin Up products as when I made some of them I only had limited things and I have a whole room full of different bits of paper I have collected over the years.

This first one is a very simple card using the Valentine Love stamp set. ( most of the stamps I will be sharing in these first few makes are retired sets)
