Stampin' Up - It has arrived!

Hello Everyone,

Such excitement always surrounds the arrival of an order of Stampin' Up Product. When the BBB (Big Brown Box) arrives I just can't wait to open it and see all the fun new goodies I get to play with. Come June 1st you can too just contact me to find out how.

Before I start making and showing you all the fun things with the new goodies I'm going to show you a couple of creations with some of my favourite retiring products.

I don't know about you but I get motion sick, not as bad as my Dad and baby Brother mind you but I still have to sit in the front of the car and I'm not good at flying either. Well let's just forget going on rides at Luna Park, Movie World or Sea World.  I need calm rides like the carousel. 

In this card I used the gorgeous stamp set Carousel Birthday with Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series paper and embellishment kit. Along with soft sky, very vanilla and calypso coral card stock.

In the area of Melbourne that I live if you get up early enough on a clear crisp morning you might just be able to see the hot air balloons rising up in the distance from the Yarra Valley, it is a beautiful sight to see them. Maybe one day I will get up the courage to have a ride. I'm not sure my tummy will cope so I have never done it! But they are very beautiful and at times my husband has been at work so early that he has seen another lot of balloons in the city fly by his office window. Nothing more gorgeous!

This gorgeous card design I CASEd from one of the Art with Heart team members Alisha Watson, very simple and very effective with the great products from Stampin' Up! 
For this card I have used the Lift Me Up stamp set bundled with the Up and Away Thinlits Dies to make the fantastic balloon overlay in night of navy card stock. I also used Soft Sky and Whisper white card stock. Smoky Slate, Soft Sky and Night of Navy ink as well. 

With this card I have used the Lift Me Up stamp set again and it reminds me of all the hot air balloons flying by in the early mornings. This card can be easily made with whatever stamp pads that you have on hand and some bakers twine. A great thank you card for a male friends.

It is a fantastic set and Thinlits bundle so make sure you get it while stocks last before May 31st just contact me to find out how.

Hope you all have a lovely day. Thank you for sharing some time with me today.
Take Care.
