I ve been playing

With new yummy stuff. I am still waiting for my delivery of new stash but had a few bits came with my customers preorders this week so I just had to try some stamps out. The set I ve used is called Bloomin Beauty and is bloomin gorgeous, is perfect if you like water colouring as it gives you the opportunity to show off your skills, I have used my SU markers to watercolour this bloom. Now often before I start on a card making session I need some inspiration and I always head off to SCS, a few minutes browsing the galleries on there and I am ready to go, I never like to take my computer upstairs as I don't want to be influenced but what I like doing is either jotting down a favorite combo or a favourite sketch or a element that caught my eye, and then I just take it from there. Last night I did just that went throught the challenge forums and looked for colour combos and I found this one Blush Blossom, Ruby Red and Close to Cocoa but I substitute it with Choc Chip. Of course at first I thought hmm ODD combo, but boy oh boy I love it. Here s my card, the sentiment is a Level 1 hostess set called Best Yet.

So soft and a very elegant combo. My base and the main panel are Blush Blossom an extra piece of blush was stamped with the paisley background in chocolate, and check that ruby layer!! it was scalloped using the infamous scallop punch !! and if you own both the threading water one and SU one you will see the quality difference, SU is so much better!

Now you will have noticed that I have changed my photography background, as the days are getting duller and the nights longer I need all the extra light so weather permitting I will be using the outside a lot more, I do however need to find something to work on, at the minute I m using my stainless steel rubbish bin. **shock**. Also UStamp Holiday 2008 has started not officially yet but the first bonus project has been posted and is so lovely, I am going to make some this year for sure. If you don't know what I'm talking about and you would like to find out more about UStamp go here .

Hope you had a lovely weekend, I ll see you very soon with more cards Hugs M xxx
