At the beginning of August Stampin Up launched the new Spring Mini which runs from 1 August – 30 November 2008. Inside is a great variety of stamp sets and coordinating accessories. The Summer Picnic Designer Paper is definitely bright and summery and coordinate perfectly with the Tart & Tangy Stamp set which is was we used for our next class.
The first cards were shaped like Ice-blocks and are bright ice-block colours too. We attached sticks and put bite marks in the corner to finish the look. The colours are Pumpkin Pie with Yoyo Yellow and Green Galore with Basic Black.
On the second card we used the Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper. We made a scalloped edge with the SU Corner Rounder punch and also used the Scalloped Circle punch. The colours are Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Real Red and Whisper White.
At the end of July I attended a Team Stamping Day. We made some lovely cards and had a go at scrapbooking. We used products from the New Spring Mini Catalogue and the current In-colour’s.
With every Team event there is a Swap. We all tried to use stamps from the Spring Mini Catalogue. The cards I received were beautiful and gave me a great deal of inspiration.
I put together some little pockets that are designed to hang on a bottle – as a goodie bag at parties. I used the Tart & Tangy Stamp Set and Summer Picnic designer papers. They were all different with Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red or Bashful Blue.
