Pals Paper Arts Challenge #86 & Another Sneak Peek...

PPA have Challenged us to use Texture in an "Elements of Style" challenge.

 I decided to combine it with a sneak peek of some of the new goodies from Stampin Up, available on the 1st of April, in the new Autumn/Winter Mini.

I ran out of room on the front for anything else and decided to go whole hog and do the inside as well!

This was a really fun card to make with all the different elements and l got to use my lovely new "Tasteful Trim" die...Now that has a lot of potential.
I used Crumbcake, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Naturals Ivory as my colours and teamed them with the very cute "SEW SUITE" Stamp set and Jolly Holly DSP.
The Embossed sections were done with the Square Lattice Emb/Folder and l also heat embossed the inner greeting and pulled out the Sewing Machine to finish it off.
What do you think?...I'm pleased with how it turned out, although the Cherry Cobbler Seam binding doesn't do for this mere mortal, what it does for the Magic hands of Danielle Daws...Oh to tie bows like hers!

Have a lovely weekend and thanks stopping by.


  1. This is wonderful - so many fabulous details and I love the inside as well!

  2. What a feast for the eyes, Nikki - this is absolutely beautiful. I love the paper-pieced mannequin, and all the lovely details. Nice to see that die used (I was worried it'd be too big for a card - oh dear, I need that as WELL now!!). I totally hear you, about the seam binding (I thought I was the only slightly impaired one in that department) - love what you've done with it here.

  3. What a fantastic combination of all those gorgeous elements. Divine colour palette. Love it Nikki! :)
