  IMG_0658  IMG_0660

This is using the new ‘Worlds Greatest’ wood mounted stamp. available for £8.95. This really doesnt do the card justice as the card is a musical card which i added a cute little birthday message for my son… Musical cards are NEW to SU featured on page 160 of the new Catalogue for £5.50.

BELOW: This card is a card i made for a swap several of us demonstrators did recently to show off new products to SU:

Ive used the new ‘Papillion PotPourri’ and coordinating Elegant Butterfly Punch…  Stamp set available from £13.95 for 7 beautiful butterfly stamps.



The Butterflies are all heat embossed with clear powder and coloured in with an ink pad and Blender pen, Ive used the lovely new 2012 in colours for this card, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple.

Dont forget to check out all the New 2012/2014 In Colours Page 152 of the NEW Annual Catalogue..


So what else have i got to show you….

Here is another card using the New Papillion Potpourri stamp set.

As its now officially ‘Autumn’ I will also show you the wreath i made using the New Autumn Accents Die and the gorgeous Tulle Ribbon..


I covered my ring with the NEW Tulle Ribbon, Tulle Ribbon £6.25 for a 9mtr Roll.. I’ve then cut and embossed some leaves with the new Woodgrain embossing folder, some I stamped with the ‘En Francais’ and Woodgrain Large Stamps, Ive cut a few out in Hessian fabric, some in plain Card stock, all to give different textures and the feeling of Autumn, the best bit about this wreath it can come out year on year.. it now has pride of place on my entrance door.

The Bigz die is from the A/W Catalogue page 33 (see catalogue link to right) £18.95
