Gorgeous Leaves for CAS Colours and Sketches 428

 Heavy rain and wind makes for a perfect opportunity to play with new stamp sets some more! These clouds really did have a silver lining.  😀

I used the sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches to explore some more with the aptly named Gorgeous Leaves bundle. 

It was also a chance to try out the absolutely marvellous Cork Specialty DSP.  When you see the July-December Mini Catalogue, available at the start of August, you'll find both this bundle and this paper. The Cork Specialty DSP is thin like paper but textured like cork. I backed it with a square of Early Espresso for the central element of the sketch.

The Very Vanilla card front is embossed with the also new Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment, and the die it's cut with, come from the Harvest Meadow bundle. I think that another favourite will be the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed dots. These come in two sizes, as you see here, and three finishes: gold, copper and pewter. 

What I'm very pleased to see is how well the Gorgeous Leaves bundle works with the Harvest Meadow Suite. I'm sure you'll be seeing more of all of these products from me in the next little while. 

If you live in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. I can help you with ideas, get you catalogues and provide you with Stampin' Up products. You can leave a message in the comments or contact me using any of the methods listed in the Contact Me tab at the top of the page. You can shop with me from anywhere in New Zealand by clicking on the SHOP NOW button in the sidebar.

Because almost everything in this card is a sneak peek at yet-to-be released products, I'm not posting a list that links to my online store. If you're interested in knowing more, or would like to order then once they're available, please message me. Please note that I can only sell within New Zealand. Colours used are: Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Very Vanilla.

If you'd like to be able to take advantage of early access to new products, then join my team of demonstrators.
