Bright Birthdays

As part of the joining offer during Sale-a-Bration, you can earn a FREE set of Designer Series Paper (DSP). When I say set, I mean 5 PACKETS!!! of yet to be released paper from the upcoming Annual Catalogue in June. That’s right, you can get them ahead of everyone. Even demos can no longer get their hands on these, as the pre-order time period is over. So if you join my team before 28th February 2021, you can earn the paper that made this card.

Of the five packs, I chose to go with the Brights collection. I usually fall into the trap of sticking to the Subtles or the Regals, so took a bit of a lane swerve. I love the colours that I chose, they go together so well; Pacific Point, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight.

I wanted to match the stamping to the strips in the background, so used the same technique seen yesterday on my Simple Sunday series by using Stampin’ Write markers to colour sections of the sentiment. Which I think stamped rather well!

Have you seen the joining offer and been tempted? Ask me how before it’s too late!

Best Wishes,
Suzanne

Ombre Day

Now I’ve made no secret of the fact that this paper has to be my absolute favourite from all of the Sale-a-Bration events that I have been a demonstrator for – I just love it! The colours, the paper patterns, everything. Especially as one of the four colours is Blackberry Bliss!

My project was going to be a lidded box that was reinforced with a card base, but I couldn’t decide between the two designs, so opted for both (one for the lid, one for the base). The best part about using Designer Series Paper (DSP) for a project like this is the design on the inside of the box as well as the outside – winner!

I was able to use the Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon on this box, which is also one of my favourite ribbons (anything Blackberry Bliss is my favourite!). The bows you can tie with this ribbon are so beautiful, I love them!

Which of the four colours do you prefer; Rococo Rose, Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green or Bermuda Bay? Let me know in the comments.

Best Wishes,
Suzanne

Happiest of Piggin’ Birthdays

How awesome is this giant sentiment in the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set? Whilst I love little sentiments that I can punch out and add to projects, I also love large sentiments which I can make a focal point on a card. The font is absolutely gorgeous!

I wanted to feature it alongside a background stamp, which in this sample is the Camouflage background. I love Camouflage, the stamp set has different textures giving you the impression of multiple tones of one colour – in one press of the stamp!

The characters are made using the Menagerie Mix Up stamp set and are so, so cute!

I mean how cute does that little piggy look? His face is so adorable! The Menagerie Mix Up set enables you to create a whole heap of different animals and the four on this card are only the tip of the ice berg.

What animal would you create?

Suzanne
