This is a close to show you that is made from the beautiful Designer Series Paper. The cost for this class is just £12. That includes all the products you need in making this stunner. If you would like to join us, email me to book your place. You can join us on any of these dates:

Vintage Vogue with Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive

Hi all,
This is a match made in heaven - these 2 colours just go so well together, no matter what you do! Here I have used the lovely Vintage Vogue to make a beautiful card and broach for my wonderful friend Sacha!

Here is a picture of what was inside the box.

And here is a close up, the broach is using the Vintage Vogue flower, a lovely lady Marlene O'Connor, put a little tutorial on a website to show how to do these, so either go to her blog or email me if you would like to have a go. I used Crystal Effects (from Stampin' Up!) to make it glossy and therefore it is water resistant.

Ingredients were, for the card:

Stamp Set: Vintage Vogue
Cardstock - Whisper White, Rich razzleberry & Old Olive
Ink - Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive
Accessories - Diamontes

and for the broach and box:

Stamp Set: Vintage Vogue, Build a Blossom, Tiny Tags
Cardstock - Rich razzleberry & Old Olive
Ink - Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive
Accessories - Crystal Effects, Build a Blossom Punch, Broach pin, Tag punch, Rich Razzleberry Ribbon 

Would love to heard your thoughts on this so please leave a comment, 
Will be uploading some more cards in the next few days! Am on half term now, so it's crafting time!
Until next time,
