High Tide

We used the High Tide set for the first time from the Spring/Summer catalogue to create our card for the class a couple of weeks ago.


The card looks pretty simple to make but as the lighthouse is a two-step stamp we had to bring out the stamp-a-majig!  This caused a few gasps amongst the ladies but everyone managed to stamp the 2 step lighthouse correctly and were all pleased with the results.

A mask was placed over the lighthouse to get even levels of the sea and the birds behind it

Just a reminder this is the last day of the Sale-a-bration promotion I will be placing an order at 7pm this evening if there are any last minute things you would like to buy to take advantage of the great offer of every £45 spent to receive free products SHOP HERE.

The other sale-a-bration items available can be seen HERE and HERE
(Please note at the time of posting this blog the glimmer paper and card tin have already sold out)
 
 The three most popular freebies my customers have ordered from the sale-a-bration brochure are the delicate details and avant garden stamp sets and the metallic ribbon. All three of these were used in the following card we made in the class a couple of weeks ago.


The  oval shaped lace was a little tricky to create but we all mastered it. We gently eased one of the lace stamps into an oval shape onto my acrylic block. With a pencil, we marked on the piece of card the oval shape we wanted to create around one of the stitched shaped oval framelits and stamped it in crumb cake in two halves around the pencil mark

Colour Challenge

 I am a member of the Tantalizing Stampers group and each month one member sets a challenge for the rest to create a project, it can be a card, scrapbook page or 3d item. It is my turn this month and I set a colour challenge. The colours to use were Very Vanilla and Whisper White and at least one embellishment.




This is the card I created as my inspiraton for the challenge. 



I used one of the  gordeous new lacy so detailed thinlit dies as the main focus of the card and die cut two of the flower dies from the stylish stems set one in blushing bride and another in very vanilla and stuck one on top of each other to form the flower with a large pearl as one of the embellishments

Beautiful you pop 'n twist card

 We all enjoyed making the Nailed It pop 'n twist card seen HERE a few weeks ago so much that I continued to make a few more different ones. As the Beautiful You stamp set was still out on my desk, I created the following using the floral boutique designer series papers



The ladies dresses were a little tricky when paper piecing but it was worth the fussy cutting.


A belly band was created to keep the card together using the new so detailed thinlits

 


A few of the ladies made their card into beautiful Mother's Day cards


Sale-a-bration is coming to an end on 31st March which means all those lovely free items will not be around for much longer!
