Water Colour Wings For Eureka Stampers Blog Hop

It's time to join in the Eureka Stampers New Catalogue blog hop & that means one thing NEW STAMPS!   You might have just hopped over from Tracy's blog or you might be starting here.  Either way, welcome aboard!

This week I received a small shipment of new stamps.  I could only order a few stamp sets, but what to chose?!   Oh the decisions.   I whittled it down to a few of my 1st Ooohs in the catalogue - Watercolour Wings, Wild About Flowers & the hostess set A Whole Lot Of Lovely.  They will do nicely thanks!

I bought the bundle for the Watercolour Wings set & saved myself 15%!  Did you know there are lots & lots of bundles in this catalogue?  Well worth looking before you decide on a set as these will save you money.

I needed a gift card holder recently for a friend's birthday & I wanted an unusual looking one that I had not tried before.  This one is a slide out card holder.  My version here doesn't have an actual holder, but I used the sticky stuff on the back of the card to stick it to the white base card.

These butterflies are fun to create. The colour options are infinite, however I chose a nice neutral soft look of Mint Macaron & Crumb Cake & used the new rejigged version of the In Colour DSP stack.

Mint Macaron Watercolour Wings Slide Out Card

I have only used two inks on this butterfly, Mint Macaron & Crumb Cake.  To get this look I have included a stamping guide.

Well that's it from me today.  Next stop on the hop is …. Janine  I bet she has something amazing to share with us!
