I tend to get a little overwhelmed when we get a new catalogue with lots of new stamps & accessories. I LOVE IT ALL and WANT IT ALL but when I have it in my mitts I just don't know what to use first and I end up going back to my old faithful stamp sets that I know I can use over and over. So it takes me a little more time to mull over the new before my creative juices kick in and I can start using it.
I loved the Sale-a-bration set Fresh Vintage the moment I saw it at Convention back in November, and even though I orderd it on pre-order in December it hadn't quite made a permanent spot on my craft desk. Until now that is....
I've referred to this as a '3 for 1' in the title because it's the same card but done 3 times by adding 1, 2 then 3 colours.
This first one is with just Pool Party - very monochromatic.
Out of the New 2011-2013 In Colours Island Indigo is one I've not used before. Not sure why, it's very much like 'Taken with Teal' which has now retired and I loved that, but now I've teamed it with Pool Party I really like it.
And the last card I added Lucky Limeade. I've coloured the stamp with Stampin' Write Markers to give that 2-colour effect on the image.
And finally here's a picture of my pretty little stand that I bought on Saturday. Isn't it cute?!
So that's me for today. I'm 'trying' to have a marathon clean and tidy of my craft room. Don't think I'll finish that today!
See ya soon!
