KW Colour Inspiration #38 (and a sneak peek for my January Stamp Club

Here's the Colour Inspiration from Kristina for this week:

and here is the card I created:
supplies (all SU!): cardstock (Whisper White, Pirouette Pink, Vellum Cardstock); inks (Riding Hood Red, Versamark); Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write marker (added some pumpkin pie to the Upsy Daisy flowers on the bottom layer); Pumpkin Pie striped ribbon, White Embossing powder, Sweet Stems Embosslit & Upsy Daisly stamp set.

I'm featuring Vellum this month for my Stampers Club, and this is one of the cards we'll be doing this Sunday. It shows embossing on vellum and also layering with vellum. The card below is the other project this month. I used black embossing powder and markers/blender pens to show the Stained Glass technique. I saw this idea for using the Open End envelopes on Patty's blog and thought it was a great way to showcase these envelopes before they're gone (retiring January 18th). I thought they'd make a great little valentine--they even have a spot to hide the mushy message... ;)

If you're in the London area and want to try out my Stamper's club and make these projects, you're more than welcome! The first time is free... I just need notice to prepare extra projects (e-mail is in sidebar)


product list (all SU!): Love Owl-ways & Define your Life stamp sets; Bella Rose & Holiday Treasures DSP; 1 3/4" circle punch; black embossing powders; Stampin' Write markers; Riding Hood Red & Versamark inks; Big Shot scallop circle die cut; Kraft Open end envelope; Chocolate Chip & Pirouette Pink cardstock.
