SWU colour challenge and my first sneak peek for you from the new catty

Hope you're having a restful Sunday. I'm a little late posting today because I've been working at the Barnsley Craft Fair today, sharing a stand with JJ. We've had a good day, chatted with some lovely crafters and even sold some items too, lol - bonus!

Anyway, on to today's challenge at Stamp With Us. This week's challenge is a colour one, based on this picture:

I decided to give my Soft Summer stamp set an airing before we lose the Mini Catalogue at the end of September. As well as taking the colours from the picture I also decided to follow the idea of "quilting".

Stamp sets: Soft Summer, Best Yet
Cardstock: Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Green Galore, Only Orange, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Green Galore, Only Orange, Tempting Turquoise, Versamark, Signo White Gel Pen
Other: White EP, Crafter's toolkit

I stamped elements from the set with colours on white card and Versamark on coloured card, which was then heat embossed with white powder. Faux stitching was added around each piece of quilt.

Recipe (inside)
Stamp sets: Soft Summer, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: Pink Passion, Pixie Pink

The central image is stamped in Pink Passion, the others are in Pixie Pink which is then stamped off.

Please go take a look at the rest of the DT's bright and breezy creations. And a very Happy Birthday to Zoe, my team mate!

Now - on to my first sneak peek for you from the new catalogue. I'll repost with full recipes after the 1 October catalogue launch date but for now I can tell you that this is from the delicious Whimsical Wings set.

Thanks for stopping by. More sneak peeks to come ...

The 'quilt' card is great, I really like the effect of the white embossing on the bright card.
And the 'whimsical wings' card is very effective - this stamp set could be just too tempting!
