Family Collage

I've had another go at making these collage pictures. This one I have cased off Martha Haddock. I have changed some of the detail within the squares to what I had on hand.Unfortunately the dsp Mocha Morning Speciality paper goes at the end of the month. I started this project a few months ago but have only finished now.I might have to make another one in the new dsp coming out next month. Only 4 more sleeps until the new catalogues are launched and till the Christchurch StampinUp Heartfelt event. Can't wait.
Several other products in this picture are also retiring including the Letter alphabet,and the lace border.

Paper:Cherry Cobbler,white
Ink:Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi,Crumb Cake

Sorry about card not being cropped I have a new laptop and I am still trying to find my way around it plus familarise myself with the different settings .

Gate Fold card

This is a card that I will be taching at a card class tomorrow. I taught this technique last week at another card class but used different colours, then I used elegant Eggplant and Old Olive. I have alittle bit of this Riding Hood red pleated ribbon to use up so after looking at my colour coach I came up with this colour combination.
(Sorry not the best photo). Here is the card open. This technique showcases the Framelits really well.

The best wishes words come from another retiring stamp set Short and Sweet.

Vintage Vogue is going....

Here is another stamp set that is retiring , Vintage Vogue and again it is another stamp set that I have not used much of.
I've seen this basket weave layout for a card a few times and thought I'd have a go at making a card using it.So I chose this stamp set and used one of the stamps to make the background.
The colour combo is straight from the colour coach, one of my favourite combos, lucky limeade, Elegant eggplant and Riding Hood red.
I think I'd like to try this technique with some of the new colours later in the year.
Stamps:Vintage Vogue
Paper:Basic Grey, Lucky Limeade, Elegant Eggplant, White
Ink:Riding Hood red,Perfect plum
Accessories: Bird punch, lattice embossing folder, Brights buttons
