I’ve changed out the colours and added some Dotted Scallop Ribbon for mine. Again I’ve used retiring items. Regals Pattern Stack (Not Quite Navy), River Rock cardstock, Perfect Punches Stamp set and of course the ribbon.
Last item was a 3D one.
You have probably worked out what this is but if not here’s the inside.
What better 3D item could you make at a ‘Morning Tea’……
There are so many of these out there with different variations that I can’t remember who this design idea came from.
I’ve used retiring items again on this one. Certainly Celery, Pretty In Pink cardstock, Subtles Pattern Stacks (Bashful Blue), Certainly Celery 3/8” Taffeta ribbon and the Tea Shoppe Stamp set.
“Please note that the actual retirement list is officially released tomorrow 31st May, 2013. All items I’ve indicated as retiring were taken by what was retiring in the US at the time I was preparing for my Biggest Morning Tea event.”
Thank you to all the lovely ladies that attended on the day. I hope you enjoyed yourself as much as I did.
Thank you for your generosity in donating to this wonderful event and helping me reach my goal.
I finally caved and ordered the Summer Mini set ‘Aviary’ after being tempted by so many wonderful creations of late using this set. It arrived today so I decided to use it for this weeks The Sweet Stop Sketch SSS93.
Here’s this weeks sketch.
I wanted to go bright with this card so using the fabulous Colour Coach (I know I say this a lot but it really is wonderful) and have selected from the Melon Mambo card the combination of Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoise. I’ve used Whisper White as my neutral.
So are you ready to check out my bright creation?
All the DSP is from the Brights Pattern Stack. Having 4 different patterns for every colour in a collection all in one pack is great. You’re never without a DSP for any colour now and the pattern selection is super. You can always find something that will work with your creation.
I’ve used Whisper White as my card base. I never used to use Whisper White in this way until recently. I’ve always found it to be a little ‘weak or flexible’ for a base card compared to the coloured cardstock but when you add layers in this way (not even as many as this though) and also add a layer or 2 for an insert the card really is very strong.
I so much prefer the new Brights collection to the old one but I’m sure you’ve read that here before too.
