Not ALL Banners are banners!

Posted on

One of the choices with Sale-a-Bration 2014 is this wonderful Heartfelt Banner Designer Kit. When choosing this, I had full intentions of creating the banner but somewhere between opening the kit and sitting down to create the kit, I lost all the canvas banners, lol!

After a good look around I managed to find ONE piece of canvas. I have NO idea what’s become of them which is so frustrating but regardless, instead of creating a banner I made a card with banners from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set and Language of Love Stamp Set. The Sweet Sorbet DSP is also from the 2014 Sale-a-Bration.

Sale-a-bration Scraps!

Posted on

It never ceases to amaze me what can be created from a pile of scraps. Even the scalloped edge on the card below was a scrap, a result of cutting out the pattern on the reverse side of this DSP!

The right-hand side of the Summer Starfruit Die Cut was stamped-off with a stamp for the Petal Parade Stamp Set. The sentiment is from the Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set. The cork flowers from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack finished off the card nicely!

10 days and counting left for these and any of the wonderful 2014 Sale-a-Bration treats – call me SOON with your order so you don’t miss out!

Springtime Hello

Posted on

From the Spring Catalog one of my favorite “go-to” sets would have to be the Springtime Hello Stamp Set. Seriously, it’s a tiny set but packs quite the delicate punch.

Even with Crumb Cake on the background of Whisper White Cardstock, this set is impressive. Although scanning my cards instead photographing them has done them no favors today, my apologies.

From something quite demur to something quite bold with the Bermuda Bay Cardstock, the Springtime Hello Stamp Set really works.

The Springtime Hello stamp set works beautifully also with the Sale-a-Bration Sweet Sorbet DSP and Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack as you can see.

Sending Good Thouhts Your Way!

Posted on

Isn’t it amazing how quickly one’s routine goes out the window once Spring Break is officially here?! And trust me, it wasn’t from a lack of trying to keep on track as I’m not sure just how early I printed off this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch but it did me no good as you can see, here it is Tuesday and I’m only just writing my post for Monday. 🙁

So let’s not delay things any further, here is this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch…

Mojo 337 SketchAnd here is my interpretation of the sketch…

Sending Good Thoughts - Mojo 337 - JIF

Epic Day This and That DSP was the basis for this card onto the Whisper White Cardstock, that was the easy part. Even the Very Vanilla Cardstock came together well with the stamping-off of two stamp sets – Off the Grid and The Open Sea – then sponged with Gumball Green Classic Ink.

When it came to both the sentiment and the flowers/embellishments I didn’t have a clue. Many different things were attempted and rejected until I reached for the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set, realizing I had both sentiment and embellishments all in one with the strips of dots and stripes… phew! 🙂

Then as the card was becoming more masculine, instead of flowers for the embellishments I chose the Simply Star Stamp Set. All of which were stamped in the Calypso Coral Classic Ink.

Once assembled the Whisper White Base seemed too stark in comparison to the almost grunge appearance of the DSP so stamped off the little start from Banner Blast Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set in So Saffron Classic Ink.

CARD RECIPE
Cardstock: Whisper White, Very Vanilla
Stamp Set: Off the Grid, The Open Sea, Perfect Pennants, Simply Stars, Banner Blast
Classic Inks: Gumball Green, Calypso Coral, So Saffron
DSP: Epic Day This and That
Punch: 3/16″ Corner
Essentials: Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips, Stick Strip, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Rainbow Banners over Gray Skies!

Posted on

Perhaps its all the rain we’re having lately but whatever the reason, I have had a set of rainbow colored cardstock sitting on my desk for over a week now but do I use them? No, instead I reached for my Classic Inks to create this fun card with the Sale-a-Bration Banner Punch!

Rainbow Banners on Grey Skies

The cute stamp in the center is also from the Sale-a-Bration range – See Ya’ Later – exactly what we’ll be saying to all the fabulous Sale-a-Bration range in a little over TWO WEEKS. 🙁

Soooo… take a moment or two to have another look through the 2014 Sale-a-Bration folder to check if there’s any other items you require from the promotion and if so, please call at your earliest convenience. With Spring Break about to descend upon us, the next two weeks are going to go so VERY quickly so best not put off until tomorrow if you are really keen on something.

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

You’re Lovely in Pink!

Posted on

For a Fast Friday, it’s taking me longer to write this post than it did to make the card – what’s with THAT, lol?! Sadly, it really has become one of THOSE weeks. 🙁

Plus it would seem this week I’m in a very “pink” frame of mind. Not sure why, perhaps its a Ying/Yang thing, but after last week always reaching for the Bermuda Bay, this week I’m turning to pink. And if that’s not bad enough, I’ve CASE’d a card almost as exactly AS IS. Honestly, this seldom EVER happens with me. Habit has me changing most everything without even realizing it!

Are you familiar with this term – CASEing? Copy And Share Everything! It’s very acceptable in card-making although card etiquette does ask that credit is given where credit is due. In this CASE (pardon the pun but it had to be said, lol) it was Sharon Cheng, one VERY talented lady.

Now, without further ado here is MY card, lol!

Youre Lovely in Pink!

Talk about a great way to use up your scraps as all the colored cardstock came from my scrap-stash. Even the piece of White Vellum Cardstock came from my scraps. I love how this You’re Lovely stamp from the Sale-a-Bration selection compliments the Deco Labels Collections Dies.

Also, if you’re wanting to try this card yourself, the width of my strips from left to right were – 4cm, 3.5cm, 3cm and 2.5cm. The length is at your own discretion.

CARD RECIPE
Cardstock: Whisper White, Rose Red, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals,
Strawberry Slush, Pink Pirouette
Stamp Set: You’re Lovely (Sale-a-Bration 2014)
Classic Ink: Melon Mambo
DSP: Gingham Garden
Framelits: Deco Labels Collection, Envelope Liners
Embossing Folder: Decorative Dots (Sale-a-Bration 2014)
Embellishments: Rhinestones Basic Jewels
Essentials: Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips, Big Shot, Sticky Strip,
Medium White Envelope, Stampin’ Dimensionals

With fresh snow falling outside I know I’M going to have a WONDERFULLY productive week-end – wishing you one also!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
