Confetti Celebration - Hooray!

As soon as I saw the Candle Border punch, I knew it was for me! BUT since purchasing it, I hadn't had a chance to use it. Now I have ...... and I'm gutted that it's retiring already! It's fab!

Here I punched it all the way along the base of the White mat. I then backed this with one of the papers from the Festive Birthday set. 

I punched just the 'flames' from Crushed Curry card and inlaid these into the punched border on the White mat ..... Love It! :o)

This punch is retiring and (if there are any left) is half price at the moment ..... just £10.00 - an absolute bargain!

Lots of colours used here, but I kept with the combination used for the Festive Birthday papers :o)

Confetti Celebration

One of my goals this Stampin' Up! year is to use all of the stamp sets I've purchased or earned for free ....... before they retire!

I'm getting there, but still have a few sets that have not yet seen ink!

Confetti Celebration was my stamp set of choice for last week. I created several cards using it and will show you them all over the next few days :o)

Another of my goals is to use as much Designer Series Paper as I can! This goal isn't going so well :o) I have loads of it left that I need to use up! Some of the papers are just too pretty to cut into!

I decided to stick with Festive Birthday for all the cards. I love bright colours, so they were perfect!
