As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I tend to focus on using these products in my projects, but sometimes when there just isn't the right sort of stamp for a particular occasion I tend to resort to peel offs or images from the web which are not Stampin' Up! items.
I think every crafter has a stash of goodies that they just can't be without and mine is peel offs and diamantes! So here is a rugby themed card which demonstrates just how well Stampin' Up! products work with other items :).
The colours used are Marina Mist, Basic Black and Whisper White. I have used teh Stripes embossing folder with my Big Shot machine to create the Marina Mist panel and you will note that the Basic Black strip has also been embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder.
And now for the sneak preview.... The sentiment has been mounted on a stack of the 3 colours, punched with the new Postage Stamp punch which will feature in the new Spring Mini catalogue which is released on 4th January. This punch co-ordinates with one of the new stampsets and is ideal for tags and sentiments... watch this space for more ideas using products from the new catalogue.
