Everything Eleanor and a Colour Refresh


Back again today with a birthday card for one of the Card Swap Ladies - Victoria.  As we didn't know it was her birthday this is going to arrive late.  It's also my turn to send a card to Victoria this month so you'll have another one coming from me soon, Victoria!

For my card I followed the colours at Colour Q and took inspiration from the Muse card this week.  You can see both below. 

I started with a Soft Suede background and added a strip of Whisper White stamped with the swirl from Everything Eleanor in Bashful Bride.  The main panel is Calypso Coral stamped with some of the flowers from the set.  A pop of Daffodil Delight for the centre punched out using the Boho Blossoms Punch.  I then punched the top panel with the Blossom Punch and attached this with some Dimensionals.  To finish I added a Basic Rhinestone to the middle of the flower and stamped a little bird in Soft Suede and fussy cut out.  

I hope you don't see it before it arrives Victoria but if you do at least today is your birthday! 

What's the Colour Refresh?  Well it's so exciting and I'm allowed to share it with you now.  Stampin' Up! are shaking up their colour palette with 10 new core colours!  Some of these are returning In Colours and some are brand new.  However it does mean that sadly we are losing 10 colours, so if any are your favourites, stock up now.  When they go, they go.  That includes not only the card stock and ink but ribbons, buttons etc. in those colours.  You can drop me a line and I'll make sure you don't miss out - ails300@btinternet.com

Also Stampin' Up! are discontinuing their Water colour crayons and pencils due to problems with their supplier. 

That's you up to date with my news, any questions then drop me a line.

I think this is a very minimal take on the muse - maybe I get that feeling because there's no sentiment,although I see the subtle stamping on the Calypso Coral. I love the negative die cut and the bright colours! Great take on the Muse! Thanks so much for playing along!

Lovely card, Aileen, love the negative cut! So sorry to see Lucky Limeade is going, but loving all the rest of the colors that are staying. Thanks for playing with us at the colourQ this week.

Gorgeous card. Love the flower shape, too! Valerie

Lovely card Aileen, I'm sure Victoria will be thrilled with it. I am in shock over the colour changes! How will I live without Baja Breeze in my life?! I'm so glad Pool Party and Island Indigo are staying though.

This is fab! Negative die cutting is so popular right now and I love how you've used it here.
