CHERRY DRESS!!

Here is another card I made up last week using the ‘Dress Ups’ Die.

P1080010

I added a little lace to the top (which is a bit hard to see!).  I cut another 1/2 a dress in Very Vanilla and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  This was just added underneath the Cherry Cobbler dress. Can you believe this is the first time I have used Pink Pirouette!!!! I thought I should start getting used to this colour as Pretty in Pink is leaving us soon.  I ran the card through the Big Shot with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  The Cherry Cobbler paper is from the ‘Festival of Prints’ pack (retired).  I love the Happy Birthday stamp. I have used it so much lately and it is such a bargain at $11.95 ($AUS).  I stamped this on Crumb Cake and cut it out with the Apothecary Framelits and then paper pierced around the edge.  I managed to find just enough Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon to finish it off.

I better get going.  I really should be packing right now.  We are heading off to Canberra tomorrow for the week.  Josh is playing in the Gridiron (American Football) Nationals.  I am very proud of him making the state team especially since this is his second season playing.  But I really don’t cope well with watching him.  It is so stressful!!!  I hate seeing him pounded into the ground.  We are planning a few family activities while we are there so hopefully that will calm the stress!!  The games will be live Streamed through their Facebook page. If you want to check out the promotional video then you can check that out here.

Have a good week.  I hope to stop by some time through the week to post some projects.  See how we are going!!  Hopefully I have fingernails and hair left!!!! LOL

“SECRET GARDEN HONEYCOMB”

Firstly, let me say a HUGE Thank You for your wonderful comments on my projects that I shared in the last post for the Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop.  Thank You.  They were so encouraging.  I really appreciate your comments.  It’s nice to know I am reaching out somewhere in Blogosphere and inspiring you.  I try to 🙂  If you missed the Blog Hop then head back to my last post and take the little hop around.  There are 25 blogs from Demonstrators in Australia and New Zealand who are showcasing some projects using the Sale-A-Bration products.  You can choose any one of these for FREE for every $100 you order.   Have you checked the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue out yet?  There is a link in the Right Hand Column for you to see it Online.

Meanwhile we now have the new Seasonal Catalogue.  It has some very exciting products in there.  So much goodness to create with!!!!!!!!!!!  You can check it out through the link in the Right Hand Column too.  If you would like your own copy to drool over and mark with Post-It notes and take to bed to read with you  (Isn’t that what everybody does???), then drop me a comment or email and I will get back to you to get your address to send one to you.  Nothing like the real thing!!!

Today I wanted to show you a card using some new goodies from that catalogue.  Of course, I still have some Sale-A-Bration creations to share but today it is the Seasonal Catalogue’s turn!

P1070667

So, what’s new here??? I have used the new set Secret Garden stamp set.  Isn’t it nice we have matching Framelits that can cut the flowers out!! No more fussy cutting here!  I have stamped them in Black StazOn on coloured card using some of the new Incolors: Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petals.  I stamped the “Beautiful Birthday” greeting and cut it out with the new Oval Framelites. This was all layered onto a piece of Whisper White embossed with the new and very versatile ‘Honeycomb’ Embossing Folder.  This is all finished off with some Raspberry Ripple Satin Stitched ribbon and some Adhesive Pearls.  Simple!!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Please feel free to leave a comment.  It is nice to know I am not talking to myself here.  🙂

Till next time,  Happy Stamping.
