On Thursday I had an amazingly bad day! If anything could go wrong, it did! The worst of it was when I was trying to write yesterday’s blog! At least I have learned a few more things I need to look out for with WordPress! Still, being the permanent optimist, I believe no experiene in life is wasted as long as we learn from it. Today’s card is the one I was trying to share with you yesterday.the stamp set is Painted Seasons and the Designer Series Paper (DSP) is also called Painted Season. Both products are available FREE as a level 2 Sale-a-bration (SAB) gift. If you’re registered for my email newletter you’ll know that this DSP is also available as a FREE gift on its own as a level 1 gift during March.
The sentiment I used for my card is from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set. I stamped it using Pool Party Ink, and then used the Everyday Label Punch. After I had adhered the DSP to the Whisper White CS layer, I wrapped a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Mini Ruffled Ribbon around it. Next I adhered the layers to the Pool Party CS card base. I punched a Pool Party CS Everyday Label and used it to layer half at the front and half at the back of the sentiment. After adding Dimensionals on the back of this label, I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon making sure that none of the Dimensionals went onto the ribbon!
I stamped four flowers in Pool Party Ink and four branches with leaves in Lemon Lime Twist. These were all die cut using the fabulous new Four Seasons Framelits Dies, which are available to be purchased during March 2019 only! I would have been happy to fussy cut these images, but I saved an amazing amount of time by being able to die cut them! Using Dimensionals I adhered three flowers and three branches around the sentiment. My final touch for the front of my card was to add six small Basic Rhinestones Jewels in the centre of all three flowers. To decorate the inside of the card I added a layer of Whisper White CS. I adhered the fourth flower and leaves using Tombow, and painted the centre of the flower using Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. This is a lovely colour combo, and I’ll be very sorry to see Lemon Lime Twist retire at the beginning of June. And to think I didn’t like the colour when I first saw it!!
Other news from Stampin’ Up! today, is that there is a selection of more FREE SAB gifts available during March. Most of these products are available in the Annual Catalogue – yes, you can get them FREE with a qualifying order! This is the link for the ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS AVAILABLE. Yesterday, I gave you the details about the March Co-ordination Promotion. If you haven’t signed up for my email newsletter, which I send out once or twice a month, you may like to think about it. The email went out today, and had all the details about these current promotions, and also included a free tutorial to make a card using the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set. That’s about it from me today. I hope you have a super weekend, and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
Products used: ERROR!! I produced this list on Thursday when everything went wrong! I put that I’d used Stampin’ Blends but I used Inks. Today I cannot get into the programme that I produce this list on so I can’t correct it! If I could, I’d remove both Stampin’ Blends Combos, and add in Lemon Lime Twist Ink 147145 & Refill 144092. If you click on any link to be taken to my 24/7 online Stampin’ Up! shop, you can find these two products by the codes numbers I’ve supplied!
