Today is a happy, happy day, because Stampin' Up!'s Autumn-Winter Mini catalogue "goes live" in Australia and New Zealand.  Stampin' Up! raises the bar with every catalogue.  Every time, I think it's my favourite catalogue yet - but this one is chock-full of products that I absolutely MUST have!

I've made a card to show you three new products:  the beautiful Bordering on Romance stamp set, Stampin' Up!'s fabulous new Framelits dies, and one of my very favourite new products - pleated satin ribbon.

I started off knowing I wanted to use Riding Hood Red pleated satin ribbon.  I consulted my Color Coach for inspiration, and ran with the suggestion of using More Mustard and Basic Gray, with Riding Hood Red.  Not a combo I would EVER have come up with, but here's the end result:

Stamps: Bordering on Romance, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card: Very Vanilla, Basic Gray, More Mustard, Riding Hood Red, watercolour paper
Ink: Versamark inkpad, Basic Gray stampin' pad and marker, Riding Hood Red stampin' pad, More Mustard stampin' pad and marker, Always Artichoke stampin' pad
Other: Aquapainter, Basic Pearls, Labels Collection Framelits die, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Color Spritzer tool, sponge daubers, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Riding Hood Red pleated satin ribbon, sticky strip


  1. Isn't the colour coach amazing?! I wouldn't have come up with this colour combo either but it is gorgeous! I love how you've coloured the flowers Christine.

  2. Christine, yes a colour combo that I would of gone "what the" but you have made it so work. What a beautiful card. I love your coluring of the bordering romance stamp set, very luscious. Cheers Donna Zammit :)

  3. Wow ditton on the colours. They look great. LOVE the colouring on your flowers. This set is going to get lots of ink I bet!

  4. Stunning. Love your colouring. Think I might need to HAVE these gorgeous framelits dies now. Thanks!


  5. Love this card, Christine. I must get out that Colour Coach more often and live dangerously! The spritzing and pearls are the icing on the cake.

  6. OK, I'm giving in and ordering a Colour Coach! This beautiful card has won me over. xx
