Sunday Stamping...

Happy Sunday,

Tracey and I had a fab day yesterday watching Phil Martin demoing at Coleman's I learnt quite a few things that I will be trying out.  WE all get to work together next weekend at The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show at Alexandra palace I know quite a few of you are coming so if you are stop by and say hi and if not Tickets are still available HERE.

Back to today's card and it's a nice simple stamped Sunday, I know this is a style I have shown before but I love the simplicity of the acetate stamping and mica background.  For today's card I have added the Regal Striplet die cut to one side with a few cosmic shimmer pearl PVA dots to match those on the stamped design.

This time I stamped the butterfly dreams striplet stamp in cosmic shimmer detail silver embossing powder with a soft lilac mica in the background.

I thought it would be fun to show this triplet design as I have been working with a new set of them which will be released at Ali Pali.  I was planning to show one today however I just can't until they are released!  There may be some new stamps as well but you will have to wait until Friday as there may be a sneak peak!

have a wonderful Easter and, as always, enjoy...
