Pink Ladies Mini Catalogue Swap

Hi everyone,

Here's the card I designed for the mini catalogue launch swap with the Pink Ladies. I chose to use the Tiny Tags stamp set together with the Jewelry Tag punch.

As I don't have a vast stock of SU designer paper (tons of others!) I decided to create a patchwork effect which meant I could use some 6" x 6" samples cut into 1" squares ... I only needed 3 sheets which was great and I was quite pleased how they turned out (even though punching out all those mini tags took some time)!

Here's all 15 of them on my windowsill (notice all the greenery outside the window - such a change from the long dreary winter we've had to endure). Enjoy the good weather and thanks for popping by!


Stampin' Up! Supplies:
Cardstock: Close to Cocoa (8" x 4"), Very Vanilla (3.1/2" x 3.1/2")
Designer Paper: Offcuts (1" square) Tea & Crumpets, Spiced Cider
Stamp Sets: Tiny Tags
Classic Inks: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
Punches: Jewelry Tag, 1" Circle
Bits & Bobs: Linen Thread, Taffeta Ribbon (Kraft), Vintage Brads, Snail Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots

Tiny Tags

Hi Everyone ~ Have you noticed my new profile pic? Well, as it's now officially Spring I thought I'd add a bit of sunshine to my blog (actually the pic was taken last November when I was in South Africa ... which is why I look so happy (and healthy!) For today's card I've used the Tiny Tags stamp set. I've used Close to Cocoa, Pale Plum and Very Vanilla cardstock. The Very Vanilla cardstock was distressed using Close to Cocoa Classic ink.

New Mini Catalogue is here ...

Hi Everyone,

At the beginning of April the new mini catalogue was launched (1 April - 30 September). There are so many great things in the new catalogue, although personally I love the vintage stuff most of all. The sweet pea stamp set, wheel, designer papers and felt ... and of course the bird punch. They're all simply devine ... click here for a preview or email me lindacarey@live.co.uk for your complimentary copy.

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that I've already used the new tag punch and matching Tiny Tags stamp set plus the Vintage Vogue. I'll shortly be showing you some cards using the bird punch ... a bargain at £13.50 and it's a big punch! I love the new design of the punches which are so much easier to store, as they clip flat for storage and take up less space!
If you would to receive a complimentary copy of the new mini catalogue, or purchase any Stampin' Up! products, please contact me, I'd be happy to hear from you.

And just for the month of April, I'm offering free P&P on all orders over £45!
