I can’t believe that we are halfway through March already!! Last year seem to go so slow waiting for my trip to New York and now it’s been nearly 5 months since I returned!
It’s finally starting to get a bit cooler here in Queensland. Bring on Autumn, I say!!
This week we are casing the final section of the Sale-a-bration catalogue, pages 16-19. But don’t worry, Sale-a-bration isn’t finished yet and neither are we!
This section includes the Hey Chick set and I have to admit this is not my favourite set although all the creations I have seen look amazing. So far, it is actually the most popular SAB stamp set in all the Stampin’ Up! markets.
I decided to case the chicken card on the right on page 15.
I’m having a market stand on the day before Mother’s Day so I’m planning on making a few Mother’s Day cards for all those last minute shoppers. I went with Rose Red, Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand as my colours and used the Double Take stamp set for the sentiment. I kept the same Large Polka Dot embossing folder as the original.
I just love the Make a Medallion SAB stamp set and made my circles. I am slightly addicted to the layering circle framelits at the moment so this set was perfect for me! To create the banner, I tried the solid love image in Pink Pirouette but it didn’t stand out very well on the Sahara Sand card stock so I used Rose Red and stamped off first then onto the cardstock which turned out much better. I then stamped the second thin love without stamping off for a darker colour.
It needed a bit of bling, so I added a few rhinestones to the centre of the medallion.
I was then drawn to the Designer Tee samples on page 18 and decided to case the t-shirt card on the right.
I like the sentiments in the Designer Tee stamp set although I don’t have the matching framelits. I had a flip through my DSP and decided to use the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP stack. I’ve been practising my watercolour technique and I seem to be getting the knack of it. Being patient and just waiting for it to dry before adding more colour helps a lot!!
Once again, the layering circle framelits with their complimentary Stitched shapes framelits make an appearance! I’m pretty happy with how this card turned out!!
