Botanicals for You

Today's card uses the big bold sentiment "Just for You" from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Botanicals for You. I love this stamp set for several reasons. The first is the sentiment that takes centre stage on any card. The second is the sentiments that accompany it. They can be used for many occasions. And then there are the cute little flowers. They look fantastic grouped together as I have done in my card below.

Botanicals For You - FREE with a $90 order - available until 15th February - Narelle Fasulo Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - Simply Stamping with Narelle - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228


If you follow me on Instagram you may recognise the front of this card. Earlier today I thought I would make a start on this card before I headed off to work. But as I was running out of time and rushing, I made a bit of a mess with the embossing of the white flowers.


I came back to it this evening and decided that it was not a total right off. So I just stamped more of the little flowers. Fussy cut them and popped  them on the card front over the dodgy embossing. And if I hadn't have told you, you would be none the wiser....lol.

The reason I tell you this is so that you can have another look at the little errors you make, then find a way to make it better. There are very few times that a card is totally ruined by a mistake. A mistake is just an opportunity to change your design.

Instead of using plain pink card stock for the card front, I used the reverse side of the Perfectly Artistic DSP. This is another great Sale-A-Bration item that you can get for FREE with a $90 order. One side of this paper has a marbled look and the reverse has a water colour look. So very different to each other, but both very lovely.

Don't forget that some Sale-A-Bration items will retire this weekend. So make sure you grab the ones you want before they disappear.

Freshly Brewed Projects




Today I am participating in a team blog hop.  I am part of a larger team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and we are known as the Latte Girls. And yes Latte as in coffee because I am sure that is what runs in the veins of our team leader.

So todays blog hop is featuring the retiring Sale-A-Bration items. I have mentioned before that some of the items you can get FREE with a $90 order are retiring on 15th February. So if you don't have them already, you had better get an order in quick smart.

Out of the retiring items, I love the Sky is The Limit stamp set the most. Maybe you could tell that by the amount of cards I have already shown you using it. Well here is another one.

Besides the plane and Happy Birthday from the Sky is the Limit stamp set, I have also used the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper. This paper too is retiring Feb 15.

Sky is the Limit

Today's cards are from last weeks card classes. As we don't seem to do as many male cards as we do female cards, I thought why not start the year off with some male cards. And the Sale-A-Bration items you can get for FREE contain an amazing male stamp set - Sky is the Limit. I will be sad to see this set go.


Sky is the Limit - FREE with a $90 order - available till March 31 - Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - Simply Stamping with Narelle - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228


It is really hard to get  the embossing showing on this first card, but I used the World Traveller Embossing Folder.

For this second card, we did some water colouring on the front to create a sky look.

The ladies loved this card for  three reasons. They used a new technique using shaving cream to create the marbled look in the background. Then they embossed vellum using the World Traveller Embossing Folder. The third reason they loved this card was the inside. They had no idea that making a pop up was so easy. Hard to photograph by the way, but easy to make.
