New stamp fun!!

Since last Thursday, I've had my sister Aimee staying here with me. It's been lots of fun and she's been sharing her photography tips with me, while I've been giving her some Stampin'Up fun!! Yesterday, my box of goodies arrived, with new stamps, papers and accessories. I'm so pleased that most stamp sets are now die-cut, which means less time assembling and more time to stamp. I was quite modest with my order, as I didn't want to be overwhealmed by too many gorgeous products. I picked out just a few stamps that I really love with some Designer paper to compliment, some ribbons and brads. So here are a couple of cards I made last night!!

I've used Fifth Avenue Floral and the co-ordinating Designer Paper Urban Oasis. These colours are just stunning together and right now, I think it's my favourite colour combo: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Kraft & Basic Black. In the catalogue, you will notice that each Designer paper is listed with the co-ordinating colours - a very helpful tool.
I've used some new ribbon in Kiwi Kiss and a designer brad called Flower.
I recently just purchased a small sewing machine, for the purpose of using on my cards, so I've used it a little on this first card. I do need a little more practice, but I really love the 'handmade' look it gives to the cards. So you will be seeing more of that soon!!

I'll be back with some more soon!
