Happy New Year everybody! I hope you all had a lovely time over the festive period. I enjoyed lots of fun quality time with family, which was wonderful. Coming back to work on the 2nd January was no fun, I can tell you! But, being back on Facebook Live was fantastic fun! As usual there were 4 new cards, this time featuring new products from our Spring Summer Catalogue and some of our Saleabration freebies. If you haven’t already got your copy then Contact Me and I’ll send you one.
I also had news for you about my new Stampin Blends Club, which I’m very excited about!! Plus, a reminder to check out our Carryover List to see what’s still available from the Autumn Winter Catalogue.
So anyway, on to the cards!! Here are the 4 we made and you can find all of the supplies and dimensions for each one listed below.
If you missed the Live broadcast, don’t worry. You can watch it here:
Card 1 – Party Pandas
This first card is just so cute and uses one of the stamp sets you can earn for FREE during saleabration. Plus, the small strip of patterned paper down the side is a great way to use up your paper scraps. I love the glitter balloon on this one and entered it into the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge which was to create a project with glitter on it.
- Card Base: Bermuda Bay 21cm x 14.5cm
- Basic Black 14cm x 10cm
- Whisper White 13.5cm x 9.5cm

Card 2 – Picture Perfect
Our second card was about as simple as it gets! I just let the patterned paper do all the work! Although I do love the stamp set and think it has great possibilities. I’ve got lots of projects in mind for this one so watch this space!!

Card 3 – Petal Palette Blends
For our third card we got a bit more technical and played about with the fantastic new Stampin’ blends to create a gorgeous simple card. I have a new club starting all about Stampin Blends which you can find out more about here I also used my favourite stamp set from the new catalogue – Petal Palette. It’s got a wonderful selection of images and some great sentiments in a gorgeous fonts. You can expect to see plenty more projects with this one.
- Card Base: Pool Party / Pink Pirouette 10.5cm x 29cm
- Basic Black: 14cm x 10cm
- Whisper White: 13.5cm x 9.5cm
Card 4 – Perennial Birthday with Brusho
For our final card, I got all artistic and used our new Brusho Inks. I’ve been having lots of fun playing with them and creating some fun backgrounds. This is definitely one for experimenting with and every card you make will be different. I used the sentiment from an unlikely set – Perennial Birthday. This set is very floral and girly but I thought the sentiment looked kind of funky and edgy when put against the vibrant background. It just goes to show how versatile your stamps can be!
