Sneak Peek New 2016 Occasions Catalogue Products!!!

Okay so I have been crafting a bit more lately and came up with this very simple card for my sister as she has just received her Nursing Registration!!!!!

I used Rose Red Cardstock, the new Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack, the Gold ribbon from Annual catalogue and the new stamp set, which is a salebration item Botanicals For You. I clear embossed the "just for you" in versamark and then rose red ink and used the clear emboss powder over the top. I also embossed the bottom sentiment in black. I hope you like it!
Until next time, 

Happy Birthday Father-in-law Card with Sneak Peek Occasions 2016

Here is a card I made for my father-in-law for his birthday...
Using the Guy Greetings stamp set and one of the new stamp sets from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue, it's called Timeless Textures.
I also used Lost Lagoon Cardstock with some coordinating ribbon (Clearance item)
The black glimmer cardstock used is not from Stampin' Up!® but I just needed to use it up!
I also embossed the sentiment using White Stampin' Emboss Powder.
Until next time,

Wedding Card

Here is a little something I have been working on to give to my father-in-law and his lovely partner on their wedding day! I do admit I have used a couple of retired items and items that are not from Stampin' Up!®. Aside from that I am very happy with the way it turned out and I will include the Stampin' Up!® items I did use in the carousel below.
