Sale-a-bration 2020 - freebies

Hello and welcome to my blog,

Today is a quick share of a few clean and simple cards made with products that I got for FREE!!! Sale-a-bration is a wonderful time in the Stampin' Up! calendar because for every £45 you spend on products from the annual or mini catalogues you get to chose FREE products.

Both of these cards were made in my January classes, the first is clean and simple using the Happy Birthday To You stamp set. I just love the main cake image and there are now co-ordinating Birthday dies that you can buy.  Two of the cards are good examples of #simplestamping and show how easy it is to make a beautiful card.
The card base for this card is Rich Razzleberry. Two pieces of whisper white slightly smaller are used on the front and inside. The images are stamped in Tuxedo Black using the Stamparatus (Stampin' Up!s stamp positioning tool, which is a must have in my humble opinion and if you but it you'd qualify for the FREE stamp set). The flowers and cake stand were coloured using watercolour pencils. Clear Wink of Stella is added to the flowers to give a bit of sparkle and sequins add the finishing touch.
For the next card, the base is Blackberry Bliss. I stamped the images with Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing powder. The cake is coloured with a chalk marker and the flowers wth water colour pencils.
The next card base is thick Very Vanilla, with a layer of Garden Green and a final layer of Very Vanilla. The lovely floral images from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set were stamped in Garden Green, Seaside Spray and Blueberry Bushel. So pretty don't you think? The half inch circle punch was used to create a little recess for the Blueberry Bushel ribbon and sentiment is stamped in the same colour and punched with the Everyday label punch. A few basic Pearls add the finishing touch. This is another example of #Simplestamping.

Bonanza Buddies

Hello and welcome to my blog, 

Today I'm sharing three cards made with the Bonanza Buddies Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Jan - June 2020 mini catalogue. The images in this set are so cute - there are 22 stamps and 10 dies and if ou buy them as a bundle you save 10% and who doesn't love a discount!

The first card was one of the projects in my January class. The tone on tone background is easy to create with Bermuda Bay ink using some of the smaller stamps on a Bermuda Bay card base. Next, cut two of the labels; one in Mango Melody and the other in Whisper White - stamp Happy Birthday in Memento Black and on a scrap of Whisper White stamp the koala bear in Smoky Slate, adding the face in Memento Black, stamp the hat in Mango Melody. Use the co-ordinating dies to cut them out and glue in place. Add a piece of Polka Dot Tulle ribbon through the top of the labels and tie a bow with a piece of linen thread. One of the Bermuda Bay pompom looks perfect at the top of the hat. 
On the inside Whisper White layer stamp the sentiment in Memento Black, the pompoms in Mango Melody and make a border with the hat in Bermuda Bay.
The next card base is Daffodil Delight with a layer of Whisper White. Die cut two banners from Mango Melody. Stamp the koala in Smoky Slate and the lion in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody. The sentiment and some of the presents are stamped in Bermuda Bay, Grapefruit Grove and Granny Apple Green. The balloons are die cut and popped up on dimensionals. So cute.
For the inside of this card stamp the sentiment and bird in Memento Black. The beak is coloured with Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stempin' Write markers.
The final card base is Terracotta Tile. Stamp the background with the same colour ink. Add a strip of Birthday Bonanza DSP across the middle of the card. Cut the focal panel using one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies from a piece of Whisper White and stamp the images. Stamp the bird and hat on a scrap of Whisper White before die cutting with the co-ordinating dies. I used another of the cute pompoms for the hat.
For the inside, stamp the sentiment in black plus three of the tall presents which look like candles. The pompom looks like a flame.
