Fresh Cuts Card with Amy's Sketch


Whenever I am online, I generally always have a peep at what Amy is doing on her lovely blog - lovely cards of course!

I couldn't resist taking part in her Friday sketch challenge this morning (beats typing up notes for work!) - in fact this is the first challenge I have done this year!

I am pretty pleased with this card. Hope you like it!

I used Stampin' Up!s Fresh Cuts stamp set for the card. Other Supplies used, all SU: Tempting Turquoise Card Ink & grosgrain Ribbon, Certainly Celery Card and Ink, Taken with Teal Card and Ink, and of course the Scallop Edge Punch.

Brilliant sketch Amy - go to Amy's Friday Sketch post if you would like to take part - she says 'ANYONE can participate- you can use whatever products/stamps/embellies you want - sky's the limit' - so, if you've not done one before, why not have a go? Amy has done most of the hard work - coming up with the idea - it only took me 10 minutes to make the card by following the sketch!

Here is Amy's sketch, so you can see what I followed:



New Stamps with Mini Catalogue!

I am so pleased we have got our own SU Mini Catalogue at least - and yes it's been worth the wait!

It is of course our first ever Mini Catalogue from SU in the UK - with an all new line of stamp sets and accessories. It’s all gorgeous stuff and if you can’t wait for your hard copy - you can download it here from my Stampin site now!

The Mini catalogue runs from April 1st to September 30th - as with all minis, we don't know what stamp sets are going to be limited and what will be in next year's catalogue, so if there is something you really like, remember the end of date.

Do please contact me if you'd like to place an order from the Mini or main SU catalogue.

I have so many favourites from the mini - in fact I wanted them all! At the moment it has to be Fresh Cuts, the 2 oval punches and matching Oval All Stamp set, and the Sense of Time Set.

If you're looking for more cardmaking ideas using Stamps from the Mini, checkout the Splitcoast Stampers SU Gallery - the US Mini has a lot of the same sets as ours, so the Minis bit of the SU gallery is a great browse for Inspiration. And of course, the SCS has the A-Z section for all SU Stamp Sets.
