Playing around

Been doing a bit of playing around today!
(I was supposed to be making 44 swaps ready for our All Day Training event
that's just two weeks away!) 
Still haven't decided what I am doing for these.
Here's what I made today.

I am a little unsure about this card.  I set off distressing the embossed areas
of the card, then I changed my mind. Hence the top half only is distressed!!
The colour combo is Pool Party, Island Indigo and Very Vanilla
I played around with a teeny set of stamps that you will be able to see more of in the 
Spring/Summer Seasonal Catalogue - I love these little leaves!.
I matched up a new S-A-B punch and stamp-set with the Curly Label Punch
and added some S-A-B ribbon.
Two basic pearls finish it off.
As I said, I am not sure about this card - let me know what you think.


  1. I like it, nice and simple but not boring x

  2. Hi Kate, nothing wronge with this card, the colour combo is great as is the embossing, and your little stamps are super.

  3. Loving the colour combination and the gorgeous honeycombe embossing! The little leaf stamps are fabulous too.

  4. Those little leaves are gorgeous. Bet they'll prove invaluable. It's a great card...having the top half embossed adds interest.

  5. Its like going from the old year and into the new - appropriate for January love Ann x x

  6. Wonderful honeycomb project. Love the detail.

  7. I think it's brilliant, lots of texture, and love the little stamps and curly labels x

  8. Beautiful card,love the details and fabulous

  9. IMHO, I would add a little of the brown colour to the edges of the blue punched to bring it all together. It is a very nice card however :)

  10. I love it colours work well together x

  11. Gorgeous card chick....I love it

  12. It's quite different for you Kate, it's good to have a good old play sometimes, I love the colours, the embossing really lifts it as does the inking, I lovely card for anyone xx

  13. These look great the colours are perfect and the sort of card that is great for keeping at hand as it suits both genders.
