Hi everyone, welcome to another blog hop. If you have been here before...Welcome back :-)
If you haven't then let me let you about us and our hop. We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators and more importantly friends, who put together a little blog hop to show you either a theme or some designs with new products. This hop is all about our Sale-a-bration FREE sets. You can get these sets for free up until the end of March so if you wish to know how to get them FREE for yourself contact me and I can help you from anywhere in australia, (email is good that way).
Anyway on to our hop. You may have just hopped over from the gorgeous Kathryn's site if not, don't worry you can start here and the hop will take you in a complete circle back to where you started, so you won't miss a thing.
I have made two cards to show you today showing two of the four free sets in two completely different colour schemes. The first one I have used Punch Bunch, this is a great set as it matches up beautifully with alot of our wonderful punches, taking out all that hard work of cutting things out, and who doesn't love punches, I love them!! Imagine having stamped images with perfect cut edges all the time, thats why I love them so...
I have used Crumb Cake cardstock as the base, then Marina Mist and Cajun Craze, I have also used the scallop circle punch and the 1 1/4 inch cirlce punch for the stamped image, I have also punched out the middle one and put the image on the inside of the card to give it a little effect. The Lattice embossing folder was used on both card for the background to give them a bit of depth.
For the finishing touch is some 3/8 inch Marina Mist taffeta ribbon with a double bow in the middle.
The second one I have used the Sweet Summer set. This card is a bit brighter as the background colour is Whisper White and the accent colour is one of our in colours Concord Crush. I have stamped the flower stem in Wild Wasabi and the top in Concord Crush, the stamped another flower top on a different piece of paper then cut out just the middle part and used a 3D dots to raise it up on the card to give the flower dimention. I have also done the same to the little bee. A little more ribbon, this time it is 1/2 inch stitched-poly ribbon to match the concord crush with some Rhinestone brads to give it a little bling.
I hope you liked my little cards today and I hope you really enjoy the the blog hop. This may be the end of you journey but if not you are heading off to the talented Ros Davidson, I know you will love her work as much as I do.
