Old & New

Sorry, CAS Colours & Sketches followers, I was missing in action last week due to a couple of family issues but I'm back this week with Bev's awesome colour challenge, I just LOVE these colours together, so summery and they remind me of sherbet sweeties or candies, although I make it a rule never to eat green sweets!

I've called my post Old & New, since these colours have been around for a bit but my stamps are brand new! Love getting new stuff, don't you? I've been very conservative over the last year and haven't ordered much stuff but when I saw this set in SU's new catalogue I just had to have it- I've looked everywhere for vertical sentiments and this set, Vrtical Greetings has them all!

I inked up the plant stamp with the three colours. It was a bit tricky and my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig helped me get them straight. I have used a pool party mat and I also stamped a couple of extra pots and fussy cut them out to pop up on foam pads

I added a Wink Of Stella to add a bit of glisten to the pots, it's my new favourite bit of kit, I will probably have to give myself a strong talking to to avoid over using it!
A very simple and clean card for a summer birthday.


  1. Great minds think alike with you & Liz, LOVE how you have both used the same stamp sets, but you both have come up with different yet wonderfully CAS designs. Beautiful use of the colours and I love the symmetry of your design. Hugs Bev x

  2. Great choice of stamps for these colours, love the double pairing and 3D pots.

  3. I love what you and Liz have both done with Bev's colours, the same but different! I especially like the mixed inks on the stamp. Stef x

  4. Gorgeous use of the colours - what a gorgeous stamp set and card! Caro x


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
