Stampin Up Bliss Sale a bration and a weird dream

First of all I have to tell you about my weird dream last night!  I was in work and was asked to go to the USA for a business trip and when I got to the offices to start training, stay with me on this..... We were on a coffee break and out in the corridor Dawn Griffith (you know who, Hi Stampers) was there and she was selling Dazzling Diamonds in the biggest pots you could imagine.  I only had English currency a £40 note (where did that come from, we don't have this note as far as I know).  anyway; Dawn wouldn't take it as payment so I had to go to their accounts department to get it changed into dollars and I got $220 of them for my £40 quid! great exchange rate........and this is where it got really weird (that's if you are still with me?) someone else in this corridor was selling Stampin Up new colour ink pads; 20 of them so of course I wanted these as well! the colours were amazing and I wish I could remember the names of them.  Well you know how your dream then goes mad and you can't fit everything in your bag and find your way back to where you should be? and this part of the dream goes on and on until you wake up and it's all over.  flippin Eck I so wanted that big pot of Dazzling Diamonds and all those lush new ink pads!!!

Back to reality and today's show and tell card that was my sneak peak a couple of days ago....

I used one of the SAB sets called Bliss and I really think this will be a favourite.

I stamped some of the images onto 2 colours of Designer paper Baha Breeze and Crumb Cake; a bit like One Sheet Wonder sheets of paper but smaller, then I stamped the larger flourish image over it in Versamark and embossed with Stampin Up's Gold Embossing Powder.  I must say I have used lots of embossing powder in my years of crafting and have to say this one is the best it's like looking at gold mirror if you know what I mean?

I punched out 2 sets of 3 squares in each of the colours and placed them onto Early Espresso card stock and placed that onto a crumb cake card base that I'd stamped the flourish and the word stamp Bliss in Espresso ink.

If you would like to purchase any items to make this card then you can't buy the stamps HA HA they are FREE with a £45 or more order, send me an email or call me on 01299 269274

Until crafty........
