Perfectly Preserved by Stampin Up and me

Good Morning dear Stampers.
Wow, I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted a card on my blog. The days have been flying by. We had one amazing trip to Vancouver Island as a family. I love that Island and I do hope we can go there more often. The ocean, the beach, the driftwood that is all over the place.. the mountains, the people. What a great place.

The other day I received my Stampin Order, which included my Perfectly Preserved stamp set (#126692 - $25.95 for 14 of the cutest stamps)
I had also purchased the Framelits Dies. Designed to frame around the stamped images from the Perfectly Preserved Stamp set, so you can see where to cut the images. (#127822 - $30.95)
But there is some good news if you want to purchase the dies and the stamps together. It's a lot cheaper if you buy them at the same time. For $46.95 - #129944 you can buy them both in the Perfectly Preserved Bundle. That is a $10 discount. Always worth it right :)
Don't you love that cute little pear.
My head is just spinning with all the fun cards I can create with this sweet set!


For the colour combo of this card I used the Paper Players Colour Challenge #112. Dear Lesly from the PP encouraged us to use Basic Black, Basic Grey and Baja Breeze.  I added a little touch of Yellow.. to brighten it up a bit.. I hope they don't mind :) Please check out their site.. So many amazing ideas created by the Players and don't get me started on all the entries.. so much fun!

I also used for the first time one of the new ink pads that Stampin Up provides. Was it ever easy to use. No more excess tapping, just a light tap and the image was covered with ink.
Here you see the new In - Colour of 2012-2013 - Summer Starfruit (#126991 - $7.25)

I used this beautiful sketch of Mojo Monday #258 for my card. I am so thankful for weekly sketches, they are the best. This one for sure gave me some inspiration for my card.

Well, I have loads to do today.. So I better get going.
Enjoy the rest of your day and I hope to connect to you soon!
Inky hugs, Pauline
