Sometimes, there are items in the catalogue that you don’t appear to fancy as much as others. These items are lower down on your wish list and sometimes, you don’t purchase them because you want the other items first. Well, I’ll be honest, that was my first thought when I saw the Dandy Garden suite.
However, demonstrators who attended Onstage at Home in November were gifted part of the suite by Stampin’ Up! as part of the Swag Bag option. The paper, stamps, punch, ribbon and trinkets were included as part of this – so rather than leave a set unused, I decided to have a play.
As you can see, I have created a lovely card from the set and massively proved to myself that I shouldn’t write off any item in the catalogue based on the images in there. I love how the stamps look coloured with Stampin’ Markers against the Very Vanilla cardstock.
And the best part? The trinkets – oh they are the sweetest things! I quickly adhered three onto this card and they look absolutely gorgeous.
So the moral of the story – never judge a suite by the images in the catalogue alone.
Come back for these after the 5th January and they will be live!
