New Year, new stash !

Happy New Year To Everyone !

Fresh start, fresh stash, new toys to play with, what's not to like.

I have been very spoilt and have lovely new stamps, embossing folders and dies , didn't know where to start !  My Sister always asks me for a wish list but she didn't this year so I was really wondering what she had sent me.  I just love these Watercolour wings stamps and dies from Stampin Up,  I had seen them in the catalogue and dismissed them but once I played with the layering stamps I am besotted with them, last night I just sat and stamped lots of colour variations using Memento and archival inks. Today when I got time to make a card I already had the colour combo's ready worked out.Fot this one I used New Sprout, Viridian and bamboo leaves.  The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday Choose Happiness set ( also a gift from my Sister) the butterfly embossing folder was a gift from a friend. I'm buzzing with ideas which is great as I've been struggling with my mojo of late, I need to go cook dinner but I just want to play ha ha ha ha !


  1. Happy New Year Joan, and what a way to start it by getting your mojo back. I love your butterfly and the spring colours that you've used. I've made some cards for a friend today and I've used different butterflies on them all so it must be a day for it. Wishing you a colourful and creative 2016 X

  2. Your card is gorgeous joan and your butterfly is beautiful, love that embossing folder too.
