…to the end of Sale-a-Bration! Yep, there is only 2 days left so get those orders in now.
Today’s card is one we are going to create in our class tomorrow morning. It is using the “Hey Chick” Stamp Set from SAB.
I’m pretty happy with how this card turned out – completely different to what I started out doing, especially the middle chick. She started out as a very subdued colour but she just looked very sad, so I spruced her up in the bright colours of Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight. She loved it & instantly come alive.
I then decided to add a little bow on her neck. As I have run out of the Melon Mambo ThickBaker’s Twine, I decided to use the Whisper White Baker’s Twine (retired) which I still have a heap & so it matched in with the card, I sponged Melon Mambo Ink over a piece of Twine with a Stampin’ Sponge. Worked perfectly.

Today’s post is a little late. I can’t seem to get my act together even though my card was created way ahead of time.
I’ve used the “Carried Away” DSP along with the “Any Occasion” Stamp Set, both from Sale-a-Bration. I did get my inspiration from a card on Page 15 of the Catalogue but then used our sketch we have for our team to play with. I teamed the Stamp Set & DSP with the matching “Up & Away” Framelits from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

My card today is using the lovely (FREE) “Carried Away” Designer Series Paper (DSP) which matches the “Up & Away” Bundle from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue & includes the “Lift Me Up” Stamp Set & the “Up & Away” Framelits.
I will admit that this is not my idea, I have actually cased it from a friend of mine, the very talented Kris. Thanks Kris for your inspiration – it was a perfect way to get me started on this DSP! Be sure to pop on over to her blog to check out all the amazing creations she does.

Today’s card is one we are creating in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class this morning. I hope the ladies like it!
I started by caseing the card from the 2017 SAB Catalogue but it sort of went off on its own. I then found a card on Pinterest that I loved so I ended finishing my card by caseing it. Thank you so much for your inspiration.
I’m loving my Blender Pen at the moment as the new smooth & improved Watercolour Pencils make it so very easy to use. I also want the class to play with them as they are very interested in different techniques, so look out class, we will be doing lots of lovely techniques in our future classes.

Today’s card is one I created for the challenge over at Mojo Monday. I have followed this challenge for some time & seeing as though I am finding it difficult to create at the moment, I thought playing along with a few challenges may get me a little motivated.
I’m not normally a Bright’s person, but I had the “Festive Birthday” DSP sitting on my desk from another project I had created – will show you that sometime next week – & thought “why not?”. I am actually surprised at how much I love this DSP & all the lovely patterns & colours in the pack.
While creating the card, I had a bit of a light bulb moment with the umbrella. I have been wanting to do a fringe along the bottom for sometime but couldn’t really work out how it was going to be achieved & then “Bam” & the brain went into overdrive. Now I am happy with it & looks like the beach umbrella I have & use down the beach.
Die cut 2 umbrella shapes from the “Umbrella Weather” Framelits in different colours or 1 in DSP & the 2nd in a matching CS colour
Cut a small “fringe” along the bottom of the CS
Layer DSP Shape over top with the “fringe” showing a little at bottom
I’ve actually left the sentiment off the card for the moment as I will do that when the occasions arises, although I don’t really think it needs one.
There is still time to play along with Mojo Mondayso head on over to check out all the lovely creations.

Today I am sharing with you one of the cards created for our Technique Treats way back in March 2016. It is using the lovely little “Easter Lamb” Stamp from the 2016 Occasions
March 2017 Technique Treats
Catalogue. You could easily swap it out for a more current stamp set along with a different sentiment or greeting & it would be a whole new card.
To create my background I used Pear Piazzazz & Soft Sky Re-Inkers, but again you can easily change your colours to suit your card. Spray shaving Cream onto a Paper Plate, Alfoil or Photo Copy Paper before randomly adding drops of Pear Pizzazz & Soft Sky Re-Inkers into the Shaving Cream & swirl through with the Simply Scored Tool being carful not to mix too much.
Place a piece of Shimmery White CS into the Shaving Cream until all CS is covered. You could do more pieces if you want so that you can use them at a later date. Wipe excess off with a Tissue. Use the piece for your card background or run it through the Big Shot with a Die.
If you head on over to the Technique Treats Page, you will find another Tutorial using the same Technique along with heaps of other fun Technique Tutorials. You also receive separate instructions for your Techniques which means you are able to file in a folder & keep for later.
I saw the great sketch over at Stampin’ Girls Gone Wild this morning & decided to try & create a card with the lovely SAB Stamp Set – Avant Garden. I will be honest & say that even though I love the set I haven’t played with it much….. so this week, you may see a couple of cards showcasing this lovely set.
I took my colours of Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum & Blushing Bride from the “Blooms & Bliss” DSP from the Annual Catalogue & added Early Espresso to soften it even more rather than Basic Black.
I actually used a Lace Doily as a Mask to create the bottom part of my card. A Sponge Dauber & Blushing Bride Ink helped create the effect. I’m quite happy with the result.
Tip Do not toss out the Doily when you have finished as you can use it for another project

Over the past week or so I’ve shared with you the little gift I created for Kathy who signed up to be a SU! Demo. I don’t do all my gifts the same as I like to create individually for each one.
Today, I am sharing with you, the Gift Bag created to house those gifts including the card created to go with them. I created this bag a long time ago & have always loved it.
Again, I’ve used the gorgeous “Falling in Love” DSP from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. I’ve kept it very simple as I wanted the DSP to be the showcase.
I used Soft Sky CS for the base of the bag. A piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS was embossed with the lovely Falling Petals EF before being adhered to the bottom part of the Bag, while a piece of the DSP was adhered to the top. The handle has been created from a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon.
I stamped “Just for You” from “So In Love” Stamp Set onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS with Sweet Sugarplum Ink, die cut the circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits & adhered to a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS which had been die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits & adhered to the bag where it opened.
The 2 Butterflies were punched from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper using the Bitty Butterfly Punch & the Elegant Butterfly Punch before being adhering to the bag.
