Picture Perfect & Timeless Textures from Stampin’ Up!

Picture Perfect & Timeless Textures from Stampin’ Up! – Sneak Peak from the upcoming Spring/Summer 2016 Catalogue

The last couple of days have been spent in admin mode. A friend had offered to have the boys over for a playdate with her two children the other day and rather than dive into all the new stamp sets from the Spring/Summer 2016 catalogue as I was itching to do, I was good and filed my tax return! It’s one of those tasks you put off and put off, but then ends up not being as bad as you thought it would be! So last night I gave myself some time off catching up on the rest of my admin and had a play with Picture Perfect & Timeless Textures from Stampin’ Up!

I have been itching to have a proper play around with both these sets and inspired by a stunning card by Miranda, a Dutch Demonstrator, which you can see here, I put them both together. I tried a sepia-ish colour scheme first, but then thought it might look better in shades of grey. What do you think? Which one do you prefer?Picture Perfect Timeless Texture from Stampin' Up!

I teamed them up with glimmer paper, metallic thread and sequins for some bling.

I love the grungy look of these cards. They are softer than my usual style which is crisp and sharp, but I think they are still CAS (clean and simple).

I can’t decide if I like the Bermuda Bay one better or the Watermelon Wonder.

I layered the images from Timeless Textures over each other, stamping off first to get the faded look.

It’s hard to see in the photo but I added Wink of Stella Clear to all the flowers. They look lovely and shimmery in real life.
