Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop...


Over on ILWS we have organised a sale-abration blog hop so that you can see the wonderful creations that can be made with the limited edition stampsets that are available until the end of February. There are four sets to collect and you qualify for one when you spend £45.00 or more from the catalogue... Email me debbi_corfiemailto:debbi_corfield@hotmail.co.uk to place yours today!




For those of you who have hopped on from Vannessa's blog welcome I hope you liked her projects.




My first project is using two of the sale-a-bration sets that are available whimsical words and vintage labels. I have made a bagalope decorated using the small wheel watercolour joy, for this I have used taken with teal ink, I used a brown envelope so that I could then incorporate craft card and also used whisper white card. The decoration for the front of the card is stamped on whisper white in taken with teal ink, the edges are inked and this is mounted on craft card and then again on taken with teal cardstock. I have rounded the corners of the card stock. (I have never used my corner rounder as much as I have this week - I think you will be able to tell!) I have topped the bagalope with cardstock and added whisper white ribbon to the top. I created the fastening with whisper white ribbon and the tag is also tied with ribbon. For the tag I used one of the stamps from whimsical words are also stamped a frame around it using on of the stamps from vintage labels.




My second project is a set of cards that is made using each of the cards from the Happy Moments set. The first card that I did was using the flower stamp I did this in taken with teal and double mounted this on whisper white and taken with teal. I inked the edges and rounded the corners. I also stamped the first layer of the mount with the flower stamp.The second card was using the birthday present stamp where I have coloured the image and then decoupaged a second image using dimensionals. I have rounded the corners and added ribbon to the side of the card. There is also a piece of DSP added to the card to bring out the whisper white. I love the striking colour of brilliant blue and with how bad our weather has been of late its nice to see some colour! The third card that I made was using a craft card blank and I stamped the birdcage stamp onto cardstock using the craft ink pad. I punched the cage out using the small tag and punched out the larger tag to mount it on in whisper white. I stamped the trees along the bottom of the card from the final set good neighbours also stamped in whisper white. I inked the edges of the card and have stamped the sentiment in basic black. The final card is using the same materials as I used for my make and take at my SAB openhouse on Tuesday I stamped the cake and then cut a second one out and painted the image I stamped the base image in black so that the colour of the cake stood out. I added some of the SU! gold thread to the side of the card and the image is mounted on a piece of regal rose card stock the sentiment is stamped also in regal rose, I have inked the edges and rounded the corners. The card base is bashful blue and I think this makes a lovely contrast with the depth of regal rose.
