June SCS Creative Crew DSP/Colour Focus

SU-Creative-CrewThe Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew June Challenge theme is Anything Goes!  For our Colour Focus challenge we want you to show us your favourite colour.  Try it in a colour combo you haven’t used before!

I actually had a really hard time choosing a fave colour!  I love so many of the Stampin’ Up! colours…..they are all my favourites!  But I had to choose, and in the end I settled on Wisteria Wonder.  I consulted my Colour Coach for advice on what colours to team it with, and got to work.

Regarding Dahlias 001 - Front

I was so happy to see the Regarding Dahlias stamp set return in the 2014-2015 catalogue!  This is the first time I have used it, and I’m in love!

Regarding Dahlias 001 - Inside

I am loving Sahara Sand, Soft Sky and Wisteria Wonder together too…..I think you will be seeing this colour combo pop up a bit more often!

Are you ready to show us your favourite colour?  Upload your project to Splitcoaststampers using the keyword CCREW0614DF.  Don’t forget to check out the amazing creations by my fellow design team members in the June Creative Crew Gallery too!

My swap for Inspire Create Share Convention 2014

Last Thursday, Friday and Saturday I attended the Stampin’ Up! Inspire Create Share Convention 2014.  It’s such an amazing experience, with plenty of new products to play with, the upcoming 2014-2015 catalogue to drool over, stamping, swapping, laughing, crying, stage walks, cheering, singing, dancing, prize patrols, all attendee give-aways, reunions with old friends and meeting new friends!  The event kicked off with Glinda singing “Popular” from the hit musical Wicked, which was fabulous, and it just got better from there!

While I haven’t yet managed to go through all of my photos from Convention, I have got photos of the card I made to swap while I was there.

Flower Shop 003 - Front

I have embossed one of the gorgeous flowers from the Flower Shop stamp set in Whisper White Embossing Powder onto Crumb Cake cardstock, and then coloured them all in with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.  So time consuming, and I didn’t get anywhere near as many made as I would have liked, but I still got to swap with some super talented demonstrators, so I was happy.  Remind me next year to start earlier, or do something a little less time consuming!!

Flower Shop 003 - Inside

My swaps didn’t include the inside of the card, but I couldn’t post a card where the inside wasn’t as pretty as the outside!

I’m looking forward to making this card with my ladies this week 🙂

Happy Stampin’

Freshly Made Tag It

It’s been a while since I posted, and I needed something to get my mojo flowing again…..this sketch over at  Freshly Made Sketches was just perfect!

I’ve pulled out my Tag It Ronald McDonald House Charity stamp set, and some of the gorgeous new Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper from the upcoming Celebrate the Everyday catalogue.

I needed a card for a little boy who is growing up very fast, and this set is perfect!
