Grey is not my colour, but....

...the Fresh Vintage stamp set available FREE during Sale-A-Bration is fabulous and works so well with a grey card base - check out the card below that we made with this set at the last Blue Angels training event.

If you want to attend a similar event and share ideas with other crafters using current Stampin' Up! products, then why not come along to my next event.  I'm having a crafty get together at my home (GU16) on Saturday 3rd March from 10am to 3pm - it's FREE and full details can be found here.

I need to confirm numbers by the end of this week so just email me if you want to come along and I'll send you my address.

So, the base card for this sample is a piece of Basic Grey card stock that has three medallions stamped on it in Basic Grey ink. The piece of Whisper White card stock has been stamped with Pear Pizzazz and stuck onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock, before adding it to the Basic Grey base leaving a little of the medallion poking out.

The Pink Pirouette flower was made by punching some card stock with the Fancy Flower punch. I only punched one but then scrunched up the flower. If you do this a few times the paper will start to fray at the edges. You are then able to pull the flower apart into two layers and the inside looks like suede. This is a great way to give added texture to a card. The flower was finished off with an Antique Brad.

The message at the bottom comes from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and the tag was finished off with a couple of the mini pearls. This is a simple card that could be used for a number of different occassions and the sentiments in the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (of which there are 24) is a great buy as they cover so many different events.

Remember if you spend £45 between now and 31 March you can get your choice of Sale-A-Bration stamp sets or paper pack FREE.  Choose from any of the following with every £45 worth of orders:
