Beautiful Bunch...

The parcel delivery man arrived from Australia Post this morning, I am one happy stamper.  I put my order in on the 3 December and I have been waiting for it to arrive ever since.  Apparently there was a freight train derailment on the 4 December about 350 km east of Kalgoorlie and it was only fixed on the 11 December, so all the parcels from the Eastern States were backed up on the freight trains waiting to get across the Nullabor.  I feel sorry for the Australia Post workers who now have to sort and deliver the backlog of thousands of parcels.

I was lucky enough to win the "Grateful Bunch" stamp set in a Prize Patrol at the On-Stage Local Event held in Perth on 15 November.  I ordered the coordinating Blossoms Bunch Punch as part of my Occasions Catalogue pre-order and this is what I have been waiting for.  I went a little crazy stamping and punching and would like to share with you two of the cards I made.

The first card is using the "Faux Silk" background technique in a classic Basic Black and Whisper White colour scheme.  I cased the background idea from Alison Okamitsu  who is a member of the 2015/16 Stampin' Up Artisans Team.   The Artisans Team posted their first projects yesterday, so if you have not had a chance to do the Blog Hop check it out.  There is some great inspiration.

The second card is using a colour scheme of Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White.  The flowers were stamped in Elegant Eggplant and Dazzling Diamods added to great some bling.

The flowers do not show up as pretty in the photo, but they are all sparkling and catch the light when you move the card onto different angles, so pretty.

Now off to dig into my box of goodies to see what else I can play with this afternoon.  I have a holiday from work today, so I am doing absolutely nothing but stamping and creating.  What fun.

Thank you for visiting.
