SAB thank you card

Only 3 days left of Stamping’ Up!’s Sale a bration period so I thought I would show a card I made by using one of the items from the SAB catalogue.

I love the big thank you stamp. It is very elegant and very versatile. I love the colour combination, makes me think of spring. I was inspired by this card by Bonnie I found on Pinterest.

This is what Stamping’ Up! products I used to make this card:

I used the dimensionals to pop up the smoky slate from the base and making sure I didn’t get any lumps on the front from the twine as it is a bit bulky. I also used dimensionals for the flower on the front.
I wish I had adjusted the twine a bit before taking the photo!
Oh well, we learn as we go. 🙂

Garden in bloom Mother’s day card

I made this lovely spring Mother’s day card to my finance’s mum.

I used following cardstock:

I used following Stampin’ up! products:
Unfortunately I do not have the letter framelits, I used a cricut instead (w/ storybook cartridge).
I used the wink of stella on some of the flowers just to give them that little extra. I think the leaves balances the green colour out well.
I love this card and I  hope my finance’s mum did too, otherwise I hope she is enjoying the flowers I sent with it.

Where’s my cake?!? birthday card

Yes, Where is the cake?!? Chill out, it’s on it’s way.. by hot air balloon. 🙂

I couldn’t resist making this card out of the Lift me up stamp set. The sentiment is from the Tasty trucks stamp set (page 12) and is only available by spending £45 on Stampin’ Up! products and you can get it for free! This will last until end of March 2017.

I used following items for this card:

It seems like a lot of stuff, but you could do all the stamping in one colour and it would still look good. I had a piece of scrap from the Carried away DSP as banner. It doesn’t have to be. It could be Smoky slate or scrap from Cupcakes and carousels DSP. This is why I love Stampin’ Up! products; it is so easy to match.  
I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp with to make sure cupcake was stamped perfectly. It works absolutely wonders. I don’t think I can live without this gadget. I also used scissors to cut out the balloon and used stampin dimensionals to make it pop. By tilting the white cardstock it makes it looks like the balloon is in motion I like that. 
I added a bit of baker’s twine because it is so easy to work with. I am rubbish at tying bows. I can’t do it like everyone else does it. I do it just like my sister taught me it when I was like 5. I still remember it: “You make one doggy ear with one string. Do the same with the other string and tie them together in a knot. Ta dah!” I bet the person who invented the wheel had same feeling inside as me in that exact moment – and from that day I could go rollerskating without bothering my parents.
