Kwerner Colour Challenge

This is a new stamp set from the upcoming 2009 Stampin' Up! Ideas Book and Catalogue called 'Cheers to You'. I just love it. I have had so much fun colouring these drinks.
I used Stazon black ink to stamp the image and Aqua Painters and ink pads to put on the colours. Dazzling Diamonds and Crystal Effects were added to add a bit of dimension.

More details about the new catalogue soon !

Trial Bike Scrapbook Page

Last night we had a Cyber Stamping night for our team of demonstrators. One of the challenges was to make Scrapbooking page using the layout above. I had so much fun making it i thought i would put in on my blog.

I used Designer Paper called Jersey Shores which is great for a boy page. Designer paper is reduced at the moment for amazing prices. It really is a great time to make the most of it.
Next year there will be a significant price rise.

I am determined this year to do more scrapbooking ,in fact every week there will be a new page.

Sorry the picture isn't the best but i did try.

Feeling a bit brighter now but better go and have a lie down.
