Sale-A-Bration

The Sale-A-Bration offers finish at the end of this month.  Don’t forget that for every £45 you spend you are entitled to claim one of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, and if you decide to sign up as a demonstrator you can claim an extra fee set of stamps of your choice.  It’s such a great offer!

I used the Polka Dot Punches set for this card.  Although they are designed to fit into the shapes of the paper punches, I decided to use them for a background instead.

St. Valentine’s cards already!

My little boy LOVES to make cards, so he makes them at every opportunity.  He’ll be making some for his friends at school for St. Valentine’s day – not, “I love you” ones, but, “Thank you for being my friend” ones.    I’ve been playing around with my Stampin’ Up!  bits and pieces to come up with a simple design for him.  So here it is …

I’ll probably make them with him over the next week or two as when he does quite a few he needs to do it in more than sitting!

 

Here’s what I used …

  • Whisper White card stock (109899)
  • Creamy Caramel card stock (109984)
  • Ruby Red card stock (109988 )
  • Real Red Stampin’ Pad™ (109924)
  • Swirling Stars Jumbo Wheel (104425)
  • Best Wishes and More (111602)

I think the Swirling Stars Jumbo Wheel is rapidly becoming my absolute favourite!
