I Have A Crush

Don't tell my husband, but I have Stampin' Up! in color Concord Crush! I've never been a big fan of purple until I got my hands on this new in color. You have to see it in person to truly appreciate the richness of this color. It truly looks like a concord grape. I think you'll find yourself with a little crush on it as well.

The design of this creation was inspired from the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA57) today. In celebration of Tiffany's Cardtique Hostess Week, I used patterned paper from the Designer Series Paper Pack - In Color (hostess level 1). With a purchase of $150+ this paper pack is yours free along with your choice of $15 in Stampin' Up! products.


Take note of the new Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch I used in the center of the card. It looks just like ribbon. This punch can be found on page 201 of the Idea Book & Catalog. I just love Stampin' Up! punches. What will they think of next?

Enjoy your day & happy stamping!

Beautiful. I love how you combined all of the different patterns.

I've never been a purple person either until Concord Crush. Now, it's one of my favorites.

I, too, love the "In Color" collection. The purple just makes it look so elegant. Thank you for sharing and God Bless.

I can't wait to get my hands on this new colour ... I am trying to be patient ... but the shipping notice still hasn't arrived! This is stunning Tiffany! I think this will definitely be my fav of the new in-colours.
I have so missed popping by regularly ... but we are trialing a new Optus internet "thingy" ... and fingers crossed it seems to be better. So ... perhaps blog hopping won't be the chore it has been for much longer! (My puter's page loading time has been unbearable ... and so discouraged me from visiting other blogs!) Hugs Andrea xxx
