Patterned Occasions

I can't believe Saleabration is almost over for another year! There's still just time to order if you're quick though.  
Today's card shows off some more Saleabration goodies.  The stamp set is Patterned Occasions and the designer series paper, ribbon and buttons are all available with the current promotion too.

So simple

How's this for a quick and simple card? I decided to make a feature of the images from the Bloomin Marvellous stamp set (only available during Saleabration).  I have highlighted the image using the postage stamp punch and matting.

Here's another! I made a whole set of these.

Feeling Sentimental?

I think that Feeling Sentimental is possibly my favourite stamp set from this years Saleabration.  For this simple card I have used a monochrome combination of Night of Navy and Whisper White and added a little bling with some rhinestones.

Bloomin Marvellous

As there are still a few days left of Saleabration I thought I would share a card made using one of the free stamp sets, Bloomin' Marvellous.  There are various versions of this design to be seen on pinterest, splitcoaststampers and other blogs. 
It's a lovely simple design but quite elegant I think and you can make it extra special by adding some pearls or rhinestones and some ribbon.

Willow's Naming Day

Oh goodness, how long since I posted here?!!  I'm afraid that life seems to have got in the way again, poor excuse I know.  It does mean however, that I have a lot of projects stored up to share with you and I will endeavour to do just that over the next few weeks.

Before I do though I just want to remind you that there are only a few days left of Saleabration 2013.  There are so many lovely products available to you this year and they can be earned FREE with a qualifying spend of £45 or by hosting a workshop/party.  Don't miss out!

Anyhow, onto a project!  A scrapbook page for a change.  This is a 12x12 page that I made to record the day of my niece's Naming Day last October.  The little lady herself takes pride of place but I also included a photo of my daughter, who is now Willow's godmother and a feature photo of her beautiful shoes.

More SAB

I am off to team training tomorrow so I need to finish my swaps and hopefully some team gifts today.  I didn't think that I was going to be able to attend this time so I'm really looking forward to it and seeing everybody; I just love all the swapping and sharing of tips and inspiration.

Today I have another card that I made at Sale-a-bration time.  The designer papers had a lovely vintage feel and so I used a piece as backing and distressed the edges.  I took a sponge dauber to some paper daisies  and attached them to the card with an antique brad.  Quick and easy!

Better Late than Never

Sale-a-bration is always a great time in the Stampin' Up! world and although it is long over now I wanted to share one or two of my creations with you. Outlined Occasions was one of my favourite sets from this years SAB and it looks great when you colour with marker pens.  The background is embossed in the Big shot with the polka dots embossing folder and then I added a strip of Melon Mambo striped ribbon upon which I mounted the message.

Still haven't found m camera lead and therefore still struggling to upload photos here but I have found an older one on my phone to show you.  Remember I told you about my weekend at the Brighton Hobbycraft show?  Well, here is a picture of one of the make and takes we did that weekend.  It used one of the saleabration stamp sets, Bliss, which remains one of my favourites.  I love this colour combination of Pretty in Pink and Espresso.

Altered Clipboard

I'm off to the Hobbycraft show at Brighton this weekend to help out on Amanda's Stampin Up stand.  Please say Hi if you're there too.  Anyway, I digress, Amanda gave us a clipboard to decorate and this is what I did with mine, it was bright blue plastic before I started. The first picture shows the back, I covered it with papers from the Newsprint and Designer papers stacks, then added my name in board letters upon which I used a base of white craft ink and then stamped in razzleberry ink with a circle stamp from the Circle Circus set.  I also stamped the flourish from the Saleabration Bliss set in Razzleberry and sponged ink around the edges.  The flowers are paper daisies which I sponged with ink, I added a touch of bling with rhinestones for pearls for their centres.  The second photo is the front of my board, I needed to keep the hole thing flatter because I will need to write on this side after all.  Again, I covered it in razzleberry card then I added a strip of very vanilla which I had stamped with the So Swirly wheel and also a larger piece of vanilla card which has the flourish stamps from the Bliss set once again. There is a narrow piece of vanilla grosgrain ribbon around the edge of the board and lots of ribbon in whisper white, very vanilla and old olive to add some luxury

Springtime trees

Remember those images I stamped and watercoloured the other day from the "Lovely as a Tree" set?  I finally managed to get one onto a card today.  The weather is so wet and grey outside that I felt the need for something a little more springlike so the colour combination of Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi did the trick perfectly.  I background stamped the base card with celery ink using a flower stamp from one of the Sale-a-bration sets, the birthday greeting comes from there too but due to the poor photograph it doesn't show very well.

More Razzleberry!

Don't look now but this is my fifth entry this week!!  I had a delivery from Stampin Up this morning and even though I was as excited to open it as always I also had to check it very carefully as the box had been so badly damaged in transit and was very water damaged.  The delivery man was most apologetic and made sure I had all the information I need in case the contents were damaged.  Thankfully only one pack of card was  spoiled and will have to be sent back for replacement.
Todays card has Rich Razzleberry as it's base once again, I so love this colour. The stamped image is from one of the hostess sets, Punch Potpourri, stamped in black staz-on ink and then watercoloured with razzleberry ink.  The greeting is from one of the Sale-a-bration sets "So Happy For You", I used the scalloped oval punch and 3d mounted it.. The final accent is a ribbon bow in Whisper White.
A change of colour scheme tomorrow I think!
