Confessions of the New Catalogue Addict

What a wonderful few days I have been having! I have been busy beavering away at that stash of birthday cards to make for the family birthday run in July, but I have also been able to enjoy some memorable family time sharing those birthday moments with those dear to me.

It is all the birthday for my Mum, my sister and me in the first few weeks of July and as it was a special birthday this year for my Mum we all booked ourselves tickets for the flower show at Hampton Court Palace.We had a lovely day enjoying all the beautiful flowers and the colour inspiration from the displays was just stunning!

A confession to make though was that our day did involve quite a bit of food as well as flowers. Well not so much food, but more specifically cake! We took Mum for an Afternoon tea near by and that was after we had sampled a little late morning tea and cake at the show.  As we made our finally way round the show in the afternoon we did our best to sample as many of the fine food wares from the stalls as we could and came home laden with goodies to stash in the fridge and cupboards! I think there may have to be some rationing to make them last!

After all that colour inspiration I also had another day of crafting inspiration joining my extended crafting family for a fantastic day of training with our lovely crafting 'Mummy'.  I came home with lots of ideas and samples and realised just how naughty I have been enjoying my new catalogue products and not sharing them all with you, up until now that is......

Here are the New In Colour 2014-2016 collection colours from the new catalogue on a simple card I have made to show them off.
The new colours in the collection are called Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon, Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss.  I can already tell you my favourite is Lost Lagoon.  No surprises there as it is always the blue tones I seem to love the most!  Blackberry Bliss is gorgeously rich in colour though and a very close second.

Which one do you like best?  Leave me a comment with your choice as I would love to know.

This card is using the dotty Petite Petals flower, but can you see the new stamps on it too?  There is the little flower centre on the Blackberry Bliss flower at the end of the row and the 'Happy Birthday'. These are both in a new set from the catalogue called 'Something to say'.  As well as lots of useful sayings in the set there is a little heart, a little star and the little flower.  In true Stampin' Up! style there is the Itty Bitty Punch pack to co-ordinate for instant punching (we love this!)

A really simple Happy Birthday card and the colours are so vivid against the Whisper White.  I am not sure why my birthday sentiment is looking a little wobbly though I think I may need to go back and check my mounting on that one.

Well I am sitting here with the french doors open enjoying the burst of sunshine coming through and the day is calling me away from the computer to enjoy it some more.  Back soon with some more inspiration and colour to brighten up your days I hope.
