Simply Elegant Pop Out Panel Fold card

Back to the wonderful Simply Elegant papers... with all their shine and elegance... especially when teamed up with the Copper Foil  sheets...

With a simple but fun fold card, a Pop Out Panel card (as per the tutorial shared here)... that some would probably called fancy! 

Made especially for a very special occasion.... as my Stampin' Up! mummy, Julie Kettlewell at The Paperhaven achieved an amazing 500K in Stampin' Up! sales last week... so I couldn't resist sending something shiny to celebrate! Here's to the next half Julie!

Live in the UK? Want to make one (or even a few) of these cards...  then remember that you can order a co-ordinating Simply Elegant Paper Kit if you don't want full packs of everything... as all the paper, card and foil you need is in the Kit... 

Though I do highly recommend adding at least the stamp set with this one... which I have used on the label... 

OR just Click here if you would like the full Simply Elegant Suite... the free extras from me will soon be with you too...

Welcome back... hope our little personalised In Color quiz was a bit of fun for you ... 

Though if you didn't get to visit me yesterday then click here to test yourself out now... or click here for yesterdays blog post for all the details...

So do you agree with your In Color prediction? Here all 5 so you can decide for yourself..

Starting with Evening Evergreen... which was mine! Did you guess right? Can't say I would have guessed at this one for me... I'm far too shy!

Though I think that (somewhat unusually) the Pink is more me!

Though many elements of this one too...

And quite a few of this one!
And probably least of this... though I think that may surprise some of you...
So I am obviously a lot more complex than meets the eye!!

By the way... having now used the papers .. there are Whisper White as well as Very Vanilla backgrounds and features... so I now intend to send both colours in your kit not just Very Vanilla...  unless you prefer otherwise...

Sunday Suite - Pansy Petals

So the Pansy Petals suite was a clear favourite suite of my customers voicing an  opinion on seeing the catalogue for the first time... 

So... live in the UK? I am happy to tell you that I have put together a co-ordinating Paper, Card & Embellishment Kit... which is particularly good value as there are a lot of colours featured in these papers! Not only all the new In Colors... but more besides... so fantastic to have a kit with some cardstock to co-ordinate with all the colours... 

But don't delay to order... as I need first round orders by 11th May to make sure I can order everything I need... Though there may be a delay for me sending out to you due to the Trinkets situation... so maybe replacement cardstock instead!

Click HERE for the video of the suite... but scroll on to see all the product images and inspirational projects...

Starting with the whole Pansy Petals suite with one click! Which is definitely the best way to order in the cuircumstances! As... please note that this is currently backordered as the Bumblebee Trinkets are already on back order... but fear not in placing an order... as the little bees will just arrive separately when they fly into the warehouse!

Consisting of the Pansy Patch Bundle ( with 10% discount)

Which in turn consists of the Pansy Patch stamps...

And the co-ordinating Pansy Dies...

And the fabulous Pansy Petals papers... check out all the sheets here... as not only do you have all those colourful pansy sheets... but 3 ginghams, a stripe, a dotty and a subtly patterned! 

These also co-ordinate so well with all the new In Colors - a match made in heaven!

And last... but very definitely not least... the Bumblebee Trinkets... which are on back order... and I highly recommend ordering these sooner rather than later as  these are very likely to go going unorderable... as they really are just fabulous! So demand has already outstripped stocks... 
And here are a few gorgeous inspirational projects... along with a few tips for you...
Now is it just me... or does the large pansy image below look like a shaggy doggy face? If someone would like to try it in relevant doggy colours - I would love to see that... as I don't have the stamps to give that idea a whirl! 
And I think the dies would work too.... again see the image below...

Look at the dies simply cutting the images from the papers...

And here's a brilliant "Cheat's Guide" of the stamps and dies...  put together by fellow talented demonstrator, Gail Ellis at Blue Rose Paper Treasures... now doesn't that make life simpler! Thank you Gail!
