Designer Paper Sampler

I just love using the Designer papers from Stampin' Up! and there are so many to choose from! There is nothing like seeing these papers in real life to see the colours and beautiful designs.  The catalogue just doesn't do them justice. So to help you all see just how fantastic these papers are, I have made these paper samplers available for sale.  (by kind permission of Michelle Last, who originally designed it)

There are 11 sets of designer papers and two sets of Specialty papers making 13 matchbook samples in total.  Each DP sample is 4 inches x 3 inches and the papers range from 5 cm to 10 cm in 1 cm increments held on a 2inch book ring.
Please note: due to the size of the samplers and some of the patterns of the papers it has not been possible to show all the pattern as you can only do this on a full 12 x 12 sheet.

 £12.00 including postage.

Michelle Last originally designed this Designer Paper Sampler and I would like to say a big THANK YOU to her for allowing me to use her design. Thanks Michelle x

The Sale A Bration stamp set BLISS is a beautiful vintage style set of stamps.  I have seen many cards made with this set which I have fallen in love with, but this style of card takes me out of my comfort zone.  However Stampin' Up! have provided us with a Colour Spritzer Tool, that allows you to give your cards a splatter look on them which helps to achieve the required look.

I decided to use Rich Razzleberry, along with Crumb Cake and Pretty in Pink.

Here is a closer photograph of the pleated Pretty in Pink ribbon.  (As you can see it is straight in the photo below so I'm not sure why it looks so crooked in the one above LOL) The beautiful Pearls we have now, just finish it all off beautifully.

Remember...These Sale a Bration sets are only available until the end of me if you would like to get your set.

Stamps: Bliss
Card: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Pretty in Pink 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Colour Spritzer Tool

Sale-A-BRATION cards

At last you say..LOL...

well I do apologise, I have been suffering with a migraine the past few days so working on the computer has been very difficult. I have only just managed to answer emails so blogging was out of the question. But it's gone now.. hurray so here are a set of cards made with the Sweet Summer SAB set.

This set is made with patterned paper from the Brights Designer Paper stack. I have made them with no sentiment so they can be used as little notelets.

It was very difficult to choose what colours to use from this selection as they are all so fabulous but in the end I choose

Regal Rose

Rich Razzleberry

Daffodil Delight

Tangerine Tango

Tempting Turquoise
