Are you enjoying the new Stampin' Up catalogue? I'm loving it and enjoying my gorgeous new goodies too! Papaya Collage is one of my favourite new stamp sets and I'm finding it to be one of those useful, versatile sets - great for male and female cards and pretty much any occasion, and it lends itself to different styles too, from CAS to ornate. Today I have a one layer card to show you that I rustled up in just a few minutes. Come and see:
The card base is made out of Naturals Ivory card stock, which is a lovely suede-feel card stock that is just the right weight for a one-layer card. I love it and am delighted to say that it's now available in Naturals White (p.160 annual catalogue.)
The card is stamped collage-style, with the elements showing through each other being part of the charm, and sponged for a little depth. The banner-style sentiment is from the lovely Itty Bitty Banners set of sentiments which have coordinating framelits for easy cutting out.
I'm busy sending out new catalogues at the moment and made lots of these cards to pop inside. The catalogue is such a treat to curl up with, with 205 full colour, glossy pages full of ideas; if you'd like a copy, click on the paypal button in my side bar or get it half price with any order.
• Don't forget that all catalogues are free if you're a member of my Stampers 6 club and you get £25 of freebies as well as other benefits - click here to find out more.

As huge Downton Abbey fans my daughter and I were delighted that Dame Maggie Smith won an Emmy for outstanding supporting actress but she is not the only diva scooping an award. Last night, as our cat Tuppence flounced out of the cat flap, I heard my daughter say: "And Tuppence wins the award for best supporting catress!" Oh very clever!
I'll be back tomorrow with something unashamedly feminine. Do join me if you have a minute.
