Rich Razzleberry


This card is a CASE from Linda Hardwick who created the original in Sahara Sand and Whisper White (you can find her instructions on You Tube)

My card came from the Brights Collection as that's the only card I have with matching dsp!

I also used a sentiment from Avant Garden which can be obtained at the moment from the Sale-a-Bration leaflet with a qualifying £45 order (exc p&p) from SU. 

The dsp was coated in Wink of Stella (clear) to add a shine.

Supplies:
Rich Razzleberry
Whisper White
Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies
Petite Petals stamp set 
Petite Petals punch
Wink of Stella
Avant Garden stamp set

First I cut out the card base in Whisper White 11"x 4½"
In Whisper White you also need 5"x 3¾";  2¾"x 2¾";  2¾" x 1"
In Rich Razzleberry you will need 5¼" x 4";  3" x 3";  3"x 1¼" plus a 2" stitched circle 
In DSP you will need 2½" x ¾";  2½" x 2½";  plus a 1½" stitched circle 
a small ribbon bow
sentiment stamp of your choice

The card is simple enough to make up, and looks lovely. I shall be making more of these once I have more colours to choose from.

Happy Crafting!

Colours

I've been missing in action for a couple of weeks while I concentrated on my other hobby - knitting! But this week I'm back at my craft table playing with some new things from Stampin Up!

My lovely Upline, Anne Williams, sent me a parcel of goodies when I first joined the SU family including a cello bag of colour samples showing all the colours SU do. I was so pleased as this way I can see at a glance what colours I fancy working with next.

So they didn't get ruined, I've laminated them all this afternoon and then separated them into colour families, connecting them with small book rings. A larger book ring holds them all together so I can refer to them easily.

Of course, its nearly time for the new In Colour selection to come out for 2017-19, so will be adding another bunch to the ring and hopefully not pulling too many off if they decide to retire any.

Happy Crafting!
