Forever Young stamp set

As demos in September  - we get to pre-order some of the new stamp sets and other products that are to be released on 1st October in the new catalogue . This year I have had great fun just trying things out with my new stamps instead of everything I make being just for classes ( aka workouts at The Craft Spa!!).....

So for today  - here are a few of my favourites using the new Forever Young stamp set - I just love the tree image - but I have lots of ideas for the clock and the frame and silhouettes too....... these are images that suit so many occasions.........

The card above is a Centre Step card which we did in our workout earlier this week ( as it is my favourite!!) - but I tweaked the dimensions to fit the silhouette frames and so that it would fit in a 6" envelope.

And a couple of very clean simple (CAS) cards....
In the first one ... the blossom in the tree is made from the debris of the new Lace Ribbon Border punch ... which I used for the decorative strip at the bottom  - along with a white Signo gel pen for the centres of the flowers.....

And the girl on the swing has been coloured in with marker pens... very carefully... before inking up the rest of the stamp in Old Olive for the leaves and then an Early Espresso marker pen for the trunk and boughs.


And in this simple silhouettes card you can see the wonderful new scalloped polka dot ribbon (YUM!!)  - as well as the new Parlor Prints background stamp - which I also used on my first Centre Step card ( but it is a bit easier to see here!)



And I couldn't post about Forever Young without posting a fellow demos' Michelle's Centre Step card that I was delighted to receive in a card swap that was organised between 15 SU! demos on In Love With Stamping last week.

This card is a total WOW in the flesh so I hope that this photo does it justice!!

You can also hop around a new catty blog hop if you visit Michelle's blog.....  lots of wonderful projects and talent in this hop!!




And for my next post.... that will be the brand new wonderful Pennant Punch... and the fabulous Pennant Parade stamp set that co-ordinates with it!! And don't forget I have a special offer on the Pennant punch & Pennant Parade stamps!!

And don't worry..... it will not be 5 months until my next post like it was for my last one!!!! Oops!! Sorry!! But happy to be back........
