52 card challenge Week 12 - UK Scrappers

This week, Nat set up a beautiful spring like colour palette as inspiration for a spring like card this week. 

I didn't stick to this colour palette, but pulled a piece of scrap patterned paper from my stash and went with that.   C

Thank goodness I am down to this final sheet of Basic Grey Lilykate "Wisteria".  I seem to have been using it forever - I bought several sheets of it after doing a class a lot of years ago with Carole Janson, whose style I adored. 
So, a simple card using my Stampin Up! scalloped square punch which has hardly been used.  On reflection, I should have inked the squares so you could see them better, but hey ho!  A simple stamped greeting with the Stampin Up! Curly Cute greeting set - one of my favourites - and some other simple stamping and a flower for decoration.  I went around the edge of the Nestability die-cut with some Icicles Stickles in the appropriate colour to give the card some pop - it is really chunky compared to the normal Stickles, which I much prefer. 
So another card made for my charity pile - and card no 8 of 30 in the countdown to stash.  Have a great day!  :)


  1. Really pretty - love the paper - I still have about half of that collection pack still to use - must dig it out again.

  2. What a lovely effect Ali and the paper is really pretty.

  3. Love this one - such lovely colours and the squares are a great effect. Pleased for you though that you managed to use up the collection!
