Sale-a-Bration and a Blog Tour !!!

Afternoon , wow my 3rd day in a row blogging !!!

Having the kids home actually means I get make more cards while watching Daniel to make sure he doesn't get up to mischief !!!! 

Today I'm sharing with you some cards I have made using Sale-a-Bration items, the Sale-a-Bration catalogue only runs till the end of tomorrow , so if you are still thinking about purchasing anything from Stampin' Up now is definitely the time to do it, for every £45 you spend you get to choose a free item from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.

















For this card I have die cut a circle in the card , cut a big circle from  the papers and cut a circle in the centre to create a frame . The centre of the circle has been used to mount the sentiment on. I stamped out 12 birds and layered 2 together , which means they sit nicely over the aperture.



This card has been made using another circle of the papers with the die cut circle from the card above being used  as part of the sweet.














I'm also letting you know about a Blog Tour that the The Professional Crafters Guild 
are running over on their webpage , I'm joining in , and it's also a good chance to visit lots of other lovely crafters blogs.
I am a member of the Guild , it's a good way to be recognised as a crafter , you also get to meet some lovely people via their Facebook Page . It's been very useful to be a member as they run quite a few activities and also have online market weekends which is good advertising for your business , it's also a good place to find advice and information and to make new friends.

 
 
So I hope you can join us on the Blog Tour , we'd love to see you,

Butterflies & Planes

Hi all , me again , today with a post on things that fly !!! I hadn't meant for it to be that , but the cards I had made yesterday all ended up being things that went in the air.

The first cards I'm going to share are ones I have made using the Watercolor Wings bundle, Timeless Textures, Gorgeous Grunge , Kraft card and some whisper white card .

I also decided to stick with three colours , so I have used Baked Brown Sugar, Rich Razzleberry and Blushing Bride. 
The cards are 6x6 , I used 12x12 Kraft card and cut it in half to make these.


I love doodling borders at the moment , it goes well with the Kraft card I think.

 The sentiments have come from the Tin of Cards stamp set.

The sentiments have been stamped in Basic Black.

This card I made last night, I decided to have a play around and build a scene , which I have to admit I don't normally do, but I am pleased with how it came out so will definitely be making more of these.

To create the hills I took a piece of scrap card and cut in to a hill shape to use as a mask.

For the trees and hills I have used Pear Pizzaz and Soft Sky for the sky.
The plane and sentiment are stamped in Basic Black. 

I have added the products to a supply list below , if you click on the image it will take you to my Stampin' Up shop.

Hope you have enjoyed these and thank you for visiting.

Day 5 and final post for the Vintage Leaves

Welcome back to day 5 , the stamp set I am using for my March projects is called Vintage Leaves , you can buy the stamp set on it's own or as part of a bundle with matching dies. You can view the set here. For one of the projects I have used a stamp set called Sheltering Tree.
As with last month , I have put together my Kit and Caboodle offers so if you would like to purchase any of them , hover over the shop tab at the top of the page on the website and you'll see the Kit option.
So here is my fifth project of the week ,some tags decorated with the Leaves.
20160203_132456
 And here is the You Tube video of how I created the tags.
These tags would go great with some matching wrapping paper, this could easily be created by buying a roll of brown paper and stamping the leaves directly onto the paper to create a more homemade feel.

Thank you  for joining me this week and I hope you have enjoyed my projects, I will pop on in between , and then be back in April for a new week of inspiration.
Thanks
