New SU Stash and a Quick Play

Yes, I know, more Stampin' Up stash. It's just that I really wanted the stamp set as I thought they looked great and very different to the type of things I have. The large word text looks great as do the swirls and flowers. I also chose to get some new colours - Real Red and Night of Navy. Really liking the navy right now but not sure what to do with it yet.


Also got some more rollers and the guide wheel. Last month I bought some thin ribbon so this time I bought some thicker ones.

I couldn't wait to try out the new stamps so made a very quick, 1 layer card using 5 of the stamps from the set. Looks very simple yet stylish I think. It's been stamped onto some smooth sparkly card from Craft Creation. I really like the variety of the stamps in this set.

The pattern on the top right of the front continues on the back. I like how the swirls can be stamped in a line and ito a corner:
