Take two!!!

Don't panic, I am not bringing you a new video clip just yet!! I will have to go for some' Received Pronunciation' lessons to iron out the 'Oakie Dokies' before then, what I am sharing though is  how one sketch, layout or 'whatever' you call the design of your card, can look different just by swapping colour ways........
One card is in the lovely '2011-2013 In Colour- Pool Party' with a touch of 'Soft Suede' & 'Crumb Cake' and the other is in the warm. spring colours of the 'Spice Cake' product suite, from were the main stamp set used- 'Spiced Paisley', is featured- in the 2012 Spring Mini Catalogue, the colours of which are 'Pear Pizazz', 'More Mustard', 'River Rock', 'Soft Suede' & 'Pool Party'!
Both cards had the same stamped, lovely shaped label/ panel from 'Everything Eleanor'....
Curled flowers made with the lovely SU card stock & delicate 'Soft Suede' leafy foliage.....
A crank of the 'Big Shot' handle and some embossing with the 'Polka Dots Folder',.......
 A soft bow & twirl of 'Seam binding' down the side........
 And a little 'Spiced Paisley' stamped background going on!
 Even the insides of the card got a
bit of the 'Spiced Paisley' stamping.

I love the fact that even by using the same techniques and very similar items to make each card, that just by swapping the colours, you get a different look! 

And it's made even easier to do, because 'Stampin' Up!' manufacture everything to co-ordinate and work together, not only the inks and the card stock but stamp sets and tools too! I lurvveeee 'Stampin' Up!' and hope that you do too!! xxxx
