Lovely Lattice

I just love this Sale- a- bration stamp set ..I didn’t think I would but it’s absolutely grown on me!

It’s so easy to colour..especially with the blends.

Here’s a couple of cards I’ve done recently with this stamp set. These both were for my January card class.

This stamp set is free when you spend $110 (plus postage) with me.

These are limited releases while stocks last up until 31st March. If you live in New Zealand and would like a copy of the new Occasions Catalogue and Saleabration brochure..then email me (details over on my side bar) and I will send you one.

I used Mint Macaron (light and dark) and light Sea foam for this card.

I hadn’t had much of a chance to use the Tufted Embossing Folder (AC 146335). Stamp set is Itty Bitty Greetings (AC 146667)

i used Petal Pink (light and dark), Bronze, Old Olive (light and dark) and Black (which carried over from the Holiday catalogue). Stamp set is Painted Glass (AC 147461). I love bakers twine and the Petal Pink and white (AC 146288) and the Silver and White (AC 145569) were used on these cards.

Now keep checking back on my blog as 2019 is going to a steep learning curve as I start doing videos! EEK! ..and there’s more but that’s for another blog post.

Happy Stamping. Keep cool if you are in New Zealand and Australia while we have a heatwave and if you would like to know more about Stampin’ Up, my cards or scrapbooking pages then feel free to post a comment or email me.
