Introducing …………. Pretty Peacock with Mint Macaron

Pretty Peacock is the third of the 5 new Stampin’ UP!  in-colors for this year, I have done a little experiencing with some of the other colors in the SU family and have paired it with some Mint Macaron and the scrummy Copper Foil, which in all honesty was the starting point for my card today.  I had a piece left from another project, the surface was a little scuffed so I ran it thru the BIG SHOT with the Country Floral Embossing Folder and I fell in love!

Introducing Rococo Rose with Woven Heirlooms

My apologies for being a day late with my post – it has been a busy week as I had my catalog launch on Thursday with over 20 of my wonderful and supportive customers who came to look at new products, do some make and takes and collect their own precious copy of the new catalog!

Our next new color for 2019 – 2021 is Rococo Rose ~ a gentle pink my sweet ol’ Mum would have called Ashes of Roses.  I have paired it with one of the new stamp sets – Woven Heirlooms, one of the first stamp sets on my list when I opened the new catalog! a new coordinating  ribbon and the Bird Ballad Trinkets.

This is the second of the new In-Colors and they are all so very pretty – you can get your hands on a set if you would like to join in my ink and color share, where you can build up your collection over the next few months without breaking the bank – click here for more info
