Day 4 & counting down….

…to the end of Sale-a-Bration!  Yep, there is only 2 days left so get those orders in now.  20170321_092233_resizedblog

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 Thick Baker’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.

Avant Garden

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 20170311_083503_resizedblogthough 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
