CAGI Blues


Hi everyone,


Hope you have had a wonderful weekend.  I have had a busy but great weather but I am very grateful for the cooler weather we have had here in Sydney today.


Last week on Thursday and Friday temperatures were between 40 & 42 degrees but today a much cooler 25 – 27 degrees and over cast.  So very hot and Summer has only just begun!


But we have a cool Blues challenge for you at  Come and Get It this week.  The challenge is to use a darker and lighter Blue with White.


So I have chosen to use Bashful Blue, Midnight Muse and Whisper White.


I have used the Everything Eleanor stamp set and the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder.


The layout for my card has been inspired by the current sketch at Try Stampin on Tuesday.  This layout allowed me to get those square punches which haven’t been used for sometime.


Here is my card…





Stamp set: Everything Eleanor, Warm Words (retired)

Card: Bashful Blue, Midnight Muse, Whisper White
Ink: Bashful Blue, Midnight Muse

Accessories:  1 3/8” (3.5 cm) Square Punch, 1 1/4” (3.2 cm) Square Punch, Modern Label Punch, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive




I am just loving this stamp set it is so elegant!

What a pretty design! Love how you've used the light and dark blue against the mainly white base - such an elegant style and a great way to use those lovely stamps!
