More projects

Lots here. First of all, I made a card using the Mixed Bouquet set. Inspiration for this came from a SCS sketch challenge, colour challenge and a card I saw in the gallery on SCS. Thank you.
Using Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal, Mellow Moss and Whisper White.
The 3d rose is smaller than the one I saw on the gallery, I felt it was too big for my card. This card also has more layers than the gallery card and I used the Print Pattern background with markers to do one of the sections. Cheers to you is from Lots of Thoughts out of the last
Saleabration catalogue.
I had an order for a card with the theme of fishing so again the Trifold card came into play.
The papers I used were some I have had for years by K & Co. Cardstock is Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron and Always Artichoke. The Barramundi stamp is by Stamp It and I stamped it in Night of Navy and enhanced it with Sakura stardust pens, clear and silver. The lady who ordered it
loves it which is wonderful.
At our first Team meeting for SU, we made a really quick effective Make and Take calendar. I love it. Karen had also made each of us a little basket with goodies in it using Loves Me papers.
Thank you Karen.
Last but not least, my new SU stash. Loves Me papers, with Flirty ribbon originals. Au Chocolat and Enchante papers, new stamp sets, 3 packs of Pocket notes in Choc Chip, Pretty in Pink and Very Vanilla. Too too gorgeous. A pack of Cranberry Crisp cardstock (this is now retired) to go with some papers I already had, the Recollections set and last but certainly not least, my new Ink Pad Caddy.
In case you are wondering about the colour names on the end of the ink pads, that is something I decided to do so I could grab the colour I wanted without having to read the top of the ink pad.
There is a chart on Splitcoast Stampers that I downloaded and then ran through my Xyron 250 sticker maker. The SU word window punch is a perfect fit for the ends of the ink pads, so just punched each colour name out of the sheet and Bob's your uncle, easily readable ink pads.
Thanks to the fantastic idea from someone on SCS and their work to do the chart up. It's excellent. So people with ink pads in caddies, there you go, a little job for you. rofl
The last lot of pics are really for the benefit of the UK girls who love SU products and especially Kerrie who is just starting to collect her ink pads. lol Here you go girls. Enjoy.
Thanks for looking.
