Vintage Venetian Romance

And here we are again - TGI Friday! 

I have some lovely new goodies for you to see today from my recent order from the new Stampin Up annual catalogue .. come and take a closer look ...

Isn't this new paper just divine? It's from the Venetian Romance designer series paper pack, 12 sheets of Euro inspired colours and textures in crisp cantaloupe, island indigo, pistachio oudding, soft suede, tangerine tango & very vanilla. So sumptuous! 

I wanted to take part in the Create with Connie and Mary colour challenge this week where the colours were crisp cantaloupe, soft suede and pistachio pudding and this paper fits just perfectly :) 

 My base card layer is Soft Suede with a little distressed pistachio pudding cardstock and the Venetian Romance paper overlaid and distressed and sponged in Soft Suede around the edges.

The challenge over at Sweet Stampin asks for butterflies and bows, That craft place challenge requires ribbon/lace & the Ribbon Girl challenge requests a bow so I've used the gorgeous crochet trim  which I have pleated for extra effect. The sparkly butterflies & scallop trim fulfil the pink sparkles challenge at Sarah Hurley challenge #82 and the Things with Wings challenge at Totally papercrafts.

Here's a closeup of the lovely paper and little butterfly punched in silver glimmer paper (124005 £4.50 for 2 12"x12" sheets), over-coloured with a  stampin write marker and punched with the elegant butterfly punch (127526 £14.25). 

The sentiment is from Simply Sketched a brand new Hostess set which can be purchased for free when a customer(s) places a Stampin Up order of £150+ - it is a great set to have and I will be featuring more stamps from it later next week. 

The sentiment is stamped & sponged in Soft Suede on whisper white and then punched using the Duo Ticket Builder punch (126883 £15.50) which fits it just right :) The button is from the Neutrals Collection.

Venetian Romance Dsp 130144 £9.95  

Simply Sketched Hostess Reward with £150+ order or £18.95/£14.95 to buy

If you would like to purchase any of the products featured today then please get in touch via email at and I will be pleased to advise or place your order.

Come back tomorrow for a special treat - it's a team of my fellow Stampin Up Demonstrators known as "the Pinkies" showcasing their latest creations from the new catalogue products from 8am throughout the weekend - should be fun! 

Have a great day!
