Birthday Wishes and Friends........

Hi all,

This blog post should have been posted about a month ago, but time just seems to keep getting in the way!  I try so hard to stay organised, but life just always seems to throw me a curve ball!!  Oh well, were back on the straight and narrow again ;o)

Anyway, my lovely friend and Stampin Up Colleague Lisa Barton celebrated her birthday at the end of May, so I thought I would make something special for her:-

I just love the Swallowtail Stamp Set because of its size.  It seems to fit perfectly on any size of card, whether it be the whole image or just a portion of it (as I have done above).

I used my Colour Coach to match the 3 colours together:-

What a lovely combination!!

If you're not really sure what the colour coach is, it is a little tool that SU sell which allows you to put colours together easily.  You pick your main colour (which in this case was Very Vanilla), and then it gives you two options (each option with 3 matching colours) which have been designed to go together.

Lisa seemed very chuffed with her present anyway, which makes it all worthwhile.

Products Used:-
Swallowtail Stamp Set
My Friend Stamp Set
Very Vanilla, Perfect Plum and Rose Red Cardstock
Basic Rhinestones
Basic Pearls

Dont forget the new Stampin' Up Catalogue for 2013-2014 goes live on Tuesday 2nd July.  If you would like a copy for £3.50 (including P&P), then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Until next time.......
