I hope you are surviving the heat this weekend! It’s so hot here, around 40 degrees Celsius! We are camped out in the kitchen/lounge area with the air conditioning on.
We are back to casing the Sale-a-bration catalogue with week, pages 8-12. This has a couple of my favourite freebies so it was hard to decide which one to do!! I love the Delicate Details stamp set but apparently so do a few others in the Crew so I went with my other favourite, the Inside the Lines DSP.
For my first card, I cased the card in the top left corner with the flowers. I did it very similar although I coloured the flowers in Peeakaboo Peach and used Old Olive patterned DSP. I think the longest part to this card was cutting out the flowers! Fussy cutting is not my favourite thing! Oh, and I used markers to colour the flowers.
For my second card, I wanted to showcase the floral pattern piece of the DSP. I used a few elements from a couple of the cards on this page. I put vellum underneath the Thanks so that it stood out more. And here’s a sneak peak of an upcoming SAB freebie, the Bermuda Bay glimmer paper!! It comes in a pack with Mint Macaroon and Sweet Sugarplum in a 6″x6″ size, with 4 pieces of each colour. This glimmer paper and two more stamp sets will be available on 21 February.
I’m glad I only did a small piece of this dsp. Every time I coloured in with another watercolour pencils, I found a leaf that I had missed!! But I think I got them all in the end.
I hope you enjoyed my cards this week. Next up is the talented Kelly. I always love to see what she has created!!
Please come and join our Facebook Challenge Group where you can join us and share your projects from the same section of the catalogue.
Hope you have a great week,
Stampin’ Up! Product List
I didn’t realise it had been so long since I last posted here. I’ve been meaning to but I haven’t made much new stuff lately.
This weekend I went to the Hillsong Colour Conference in Sydney with my sister and friends. We had a great time and I learnt a lot from the word of God with inspring speakers Beth Moore and Priscilla Shirer. I made all the girls a journal so that they could take notes during the sessions.
I used a journal from a $2 shop and covered them with the Berry Blossoms DSP. I love the glimmer paper and the Perfect Pennants die, so I had to combine the two!!

Here’s a card that I’ve made for one of the February birthdays. I recently got the Medallion stamp after umming and ahhing for quite a while but I think I’m in love with it now!! I cased it from here. I added a bit of glitter paper as you always need a bit of bling!!
