Birthday Blossoms Birthday Card in Flirty Flamingo & Sweet Sugarplum Sneak Peak Stampin Up! UK

Today I have another old Catalogue/New Catalogue Combo Card for you.
I have used the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set in wood mount with a combination of Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum Inks to create the background and the Pansy Petals. There is also a sneak Peak of one of the new Designer Series Papers (DSP) that will be in the new catalogue in June. I have used Mint Macaron Cardstock from the Rolling Over In Colour Collection, and demonstrates how carefully Stampin Up co-ordinates it's entire range, so that colour Collections not only contrast with one another, but how they compliment too ... and this follows over into all the accessories.
It makes card making & Scrapbooking so much easier!
The fill tutorial and video can be found further down today's blog post
