New colours and Designer Series Paper

After work yesterday I came home, hoovered, put my little man to bed, then decided I really should get on with some crafting! I haven't really done much over the last week or so, but I have to say, the little break seems to have done me the world of good as I made this card which I am over the moon happy with!

For this card I decided to showcase some of the stunning new colours and products Stampin' Up! have recently released. Isn't Bermuda Bay just gorgeous?! And the new Smoky Slate is so soft! 

I used a sentiment from the Simply Sketched Hostess stamp set, some of the brand new Neutrals Designer Series Paper and the ever lovely Beautiful Wings Embosslits. The upper butterflies are vellum and finished with Silver Glass Glitter and one of the new Candy Dots.

Cardstock - Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Vellum
DSP - Neutrals
Stamp - Simply Sketched
Ink - Basic Black
Dies - Beautiful Wings Embosslits
Other - Silver Glass Glitter, Candy Dots

If you would like to order any of the lovely items I have used, or any other products please do contact me for more information and to find out how to earn your own free Hostess stamp sets!

If you would like a lush glossy copy of the catalogue, again please do contact me!


I'm back at work this week, and juggling time with Keiran and crafting, but hopefully I shall still manage to keep up with my cards and blogging! Have a lovely Monday!

  3. Stunning card Lizy, not surprised you're pleased with it. Just my kind of card too.

    This is the last day of my week off and all I've achieved is one DT card last Tuesday. In my defence 4 days were spent at my daughter's and one day catching up with my washing and ironing. And I have done a lot of crocheting!
