Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #54 - Sneak Peek 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue!

Raspberry Ripple #1


It's nearly here!!! The 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue is nearly here!! :)

My swag of new goodies turned up on Friday and I was so excited to break out a new stamp set. :)

When I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, I knew that it would be perfect for an ombre type effect using this brand new stamp set called "Work of Art". The Color Coach for Raspberry Ripple asks for Raspberry Ripple, Perfect Plum and Crumb Cake. 

Do you like the card? That horizontal 'paint stroke' is a single stamp and I just stamped it in Raspberry Ripple and kept stamping until the ink ran to nothing. I did the same with Perfect Plum. 

The heart behind the sentiment is Crumb Cake stamped off once. The sentiment in the stamp set actually says "You are a fabulous work of art", but I only wanted to use the "You Are Fabulous" words so I used my Raspberry Ripple marker selectively on those words and they stamped beautifully! :)

The sentiment was punched out using the Bracket Label Punch (available now from the current catalogue!). 

There's only a couple more weeks left to get the retiring In Colors and Raspberry Ripple is one of them, so click through to my online store to order it before it is never seen again!! **GASP**

Cheers & thanks for visiting!
