Two from new stash

 Today I've a couple of cards to show you, made with some goodies from the new Stampin Up release.  I really like the Seaside Shore set and here I've used it for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch layout.  Stamped in Memento Paris Dusk, with Glossy Accents added to the bubble trail.
Second card uses a stunning 6x6 paper pad of photographic style images called Serene Scenery.  I knew if I wasn't careful this would end up as 'too good to use' so I set to and made this simple card with half of a sheet.  Matted onto black and then gold mirri, this has a Botanical Blooms sentiment heat embossed and a die cut edging exposes more of the mirri card.  A few sequins add yet more gold.  The main card is cream hammered card, so the whole thing has a really warm, summer effect.  I'm entering this card for Simon Says Add some shimmer

"Less is More" Challenge #279 - colour

Another week has rushed past and it is time for our colour challenge week at "Less is More".  This week our colour is purple.  I've used the Sketched Tulips stamp from our generous sponsor for June, Stamplorations. I've masked and stamped twice, taking the image off the page of my one layer kraft card.  It's coloured with WH Smith cheapo pencils, which had a great range of purples!  Sentiment is Woodware, I added some white highlights to it, what do you think?

Everything is growing like mad in the garden and I'm looking forward to my hydrangea flowering, one of the beautiful flowers of high summer.  In the meantime, I've used SU Petite Petals for a hydrangea, stamped in Memento ink, Summer Sky, Bahama Blue and Danube Blue.  They are framed with a Memory Box shaker frame and a few extras cut out and added.  Sentiment is Clarity.
