Sneak peek, tri-fold and a triple celebration…

I was recently invited to a party for a triple celebration – a 60th birthday, a retirement and a 40th wedding anniversary – all for the same couple! So I thought a tri-fold card would be perfect as I could put a different greeting on each face of the card.

I used early espresso cardstock as the card base and for inking, together with cherry cobbler – as it was a Ruby Wedding – and the third colour is a sneak peek of one of the new in-colours coming up in the new Stampin Up catalogue to be launched on 1st October.

I love this colour combination! The colours went so well together – I can see I’m going to use this again!

 The sentiments are from two hostess sets – one old and on the retiring list –
and one new ….so another sneak peek for you!


I used the scalloped heart of hearts embosslit and cherry cobbler cardstock, run through the big shot, to make the heart toppers, adding a teeny tiny whisper white bow with a mini glue dot.

And just a few rhinestones for a bit of added bling …

I stamped the flourish from the Strength & Hope stamp set from Stampin Up, available until the end of September.

We had a lovely evening with Jan and Mike – they have a lovely family and their son did them proud helping out with the speeches. And the hog roast was delicious!

Thinking of you …



One of our friends is under the weather at the moment.  I made this just to let her know we are thinking about her. 

I love the way the In Stitches stamp echoes the pattern of the flourish from the Strength and Hope set – it was a perfect way to finish off the card.
