Another sneak peek

Good morning!

I hope you are all well and keeping dry! We have had the most awful weather here in Rugby, including a tornado, which caused quite a lot of damage to peoples houses and gardens. We were very lucky not to be affected as it did hit some houses at the bottom of our road!

We had our card making class last night and i had a lovely time with the ladies making some cards which i will share with you later.

But for today i have a sneak peek for you using one of the new stamp sets from the upcoming Summer mini which starts on Tuesday.

The stamp set is called 'Apocethary Art' and it is one of my favourites from this mini.

The stamp i have used today is one of the smaller ones from the set and the larger ones are lovely.
I have made some other cards using the larger ones but i wanted to save them for the Blog Hop i am taking part in on Tuesday, so check back here if you would like to see lots of lovely projects from my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

The overall colour scheme for the card is Poppy Parade, Basic Black and Whisper White.

The designer paper is also available from Tuesday, along with another tool which i have used to create the frames.

Here's a close up....

I have embossed the black frame with the 'stripes' Stampin' Up! textured impressions embossing folder.

I used my Wild Wasabi and Poppy Parade Stampin' markers to colour the flowers and leaves.
The sentiment comes from the Sincere Salutations stamp set.

The flowers are made by twisting a spiral piece of card around into the flower shape and they are finished off with basic rhinestones.

Right, well i am hoping that the weather will improve today so we can actually get outside without getting wet! I hope it improves for where ever you are too!

Have a good weekend,
