Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!


LAST DAY OF SALE-A-BRATION FOR 2016! Are you sad?  I can’t believe it.  Today I have my last card to share with you for Sale-A-Bration using the ‘Botanicals For You’ set. This one I made a few weeks ago at a stamping day at my friend Leonie’s.  She CASED it from Pinterest and I CASED it from her.  That’s what friends are for right. 🙂


To get the 3 colours on the image I inked up the top 1/3 in Smoky Slate, then inked the bottom 1/3 in Black.  Then with the Basic Gray marker I coloured in the centre.   The stems are stamped in Smoky Slate.  Then I added some little red flowers for some ‘POP’ of colour.  These flowers are punched from a retired punch.  I can’t remember what that is. It is all layered on some Neutrals Colour Collections Stack with black mats and the base is the Thick Whisper White.  The card is cut lengthways on the card sheet and scored half way so the opening is at the top.

You might not see too well but I stella-d the words.  (Yes, that is a new stamping term didn’t you know!).

just for you

I went over the words with the Clear Wink of Stella Brush for some sparkle.

I did decorate the inside but forgot a photo.  I just added a strip of the DSP and then added another red punched flower.

OK, so I hope you have all your Sale-A-Bration orders in? Tomorrow is too late.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I will see you again,

Jenny 🙂


cards, Sale-A-Bration


Tomorrow is the last day of Sale-A-Bration for the year! Do you think this time has flown by too?  Crazy! I am squeezing in a couple of last minute Sale-A-Bration cards with you.

I have loved colouring this little chick from ‘Honeycomb Happiness’.  Isn’t his (or her) face sweet? This card I made a few weeks ago to send out to a few customers I haven’t heard from in a while.  The idea came from Pinterest.  I changed the size to make it a standard size card.


I have coloured the chick with the Hello Honey inkpad and aquapainter. I love how he is peeking out from the circle.  I cut 2 circles in Calypso Coral card and created a window frame for him. I have layered it on the Sale-A-Bration paper ‘Wildfower Fields’ and layered this to a Calypso Coral card mat and then a Thick Whisper White cared base. The card was finished off with some punched flowers using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and some Rhinestone bling.

This next card was made for a friend’s daughter who is not well.  I just thought I would cheer her up.  This card was also cased from Pinterest.

Kate's card

The chick is once again painted with the Inkpad (Daffodil Delight) and aquapainter.  I cut it out and raised it up off the card with dimensionals.  I stamped the balloon on the card and then stamped it again separately and raised it up.  The Designer Series Paper is from the ‘It’s My Party’ paper stack and matted on Black and then on the card base of Calypso Coral.  You can’t see it but I did add some Wink of Stella  sparkle on the balloon.

Don’t forget to get your last minute Sale-A-Bration orders in.  I am taking orders until 8pm tomorrow night or you can order online at my store HERE.

cards, Masculine, Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!


I needed to make a 21st card for Josh to give to a friend.  It needed to be quick.  I didn’t have a lot of time.  I had just received the Large Numbers Framelits so I thought this might be just the thing.  Plus I received the Sale-A-Bration ‘Party Pants’ set.  I love these little sentiments in this set.

Here is the card for you.


I have used some of ‘It’s My Party’ Paper Stack. I have used so much of these papers. There is 48 12″x12″ sheets in the pack.  Not just some bright party type papers but some neutral Sahara Sand and black and white sheets.  Very versatile I think. 🙂

I cut the 21 from the black DSP piece and then added a piece of Real Red card behind it.  I matted it all on some Whisper White and then a Black card base.  The sentiment from ‘Party Pants’ is cut from the ‘Tags and Labels’ Framelits and matted on Real Red card frame.  I looped up some Silver Cord to add behind the sentiment.  Josh thought it was cool as it looked like barbed wire!!!  🙂

So a quick masculine 21st card was made in record time!

Thanks for visiting today.

cards, Challenges, Stampin' Up!


Our team has colour challenges each week and I don’t often have the time for them but 2 weeks ago I had just a little time so thought I would have a go.

I had received the Free ‘Honeycomb Happiness’ set for Sale-A-Bration just 2 days before.  I had been busy making some cards with it the day before.  Which I will show you soon. Since this set was out still I thought I would use this for the challenge.  I wasn’t sure of this set at first.  I didn’t know how I would use it.  I had seen some cute cards around with it though.

The Colour Challenge was Mint Macaron, Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight.  To be honest I thought these colours were hard to work with but I would give it a try.  After all that’s what a challenge is right!!

The stamps were sorted, the colour sorted, just the design to sort.  When I get stuck with a design and I am not CASING a direct card I usually go to a Sketch design.  I have a few on Pinterest.  The layout for this card was based on the Clean and Simple Sketch #139.

So I have talked enough about how I got here but you want to see the card.

mint hello

I used Shimmery White card to stamp the chick and the balloon on and coloured them with the aquapainter and ink pad.  OK I cheated,  I added some Calypso Coral for the beak and legs. 🙂 I cut them out and raised them up with Dimensionals. The paper is the Sale-A-Bration paper ‘Perfectly Artistic’ which is now not available.  It was when I made the card 🙂  You can’t quite see but I added some Wink of Stella Clear Brush to the balloon.

Thanks for visiting.  Why not go and challenge yourself to use these colours on a card.

See you next time,

This was another of the cards I made a couple of weeks ago when I was playing with the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits.  I had cut the heart from the Sale-A-Bration paper ‘Wildflower Fields’ DSP.  This was one of the activities everyone got to do at my Launch at the Product Playground but I hadn’t got around to actually making a card from it at that time.

I wasn’t sure how to put it together but I teamed it with a few of my new Favourites the ‘Timeless Textures’ stamp set which I stamped in Sahara Sand and the greeting from one of the Sale-A-Bration sets ‘What I Love’.


The card base is Blackberry Bliss to match the DSP and the flowers were cut from Lost Lagoon.  Simple but hey that’s me!! 🙂

Hope you like it.

See you soon,

SAB _ Hello

Here are some cards I have made recently using ‘Sky is the Limit’.  I have CASED these cards.  The one on the left we made at my class on Saturday.  The one on the right I changed a little and added a few twirls of the Burlap Ribbon. I used the ‘World Traveler’ Embossing Folder. Some people brayer or ink over the embossing folder before they emboss to get the effect.  I tried it a few times.  In the end, I embossed Very Vanilla card with the Embossing Folder and sponged over the raised parts with Crumb Cake ink.  I found that more effective.

This ‘Sky is the Limit’ set is great for your Masculine cards. I think you need this set. 🙂

I had a quick play with the ‘Perfectly Artistic DSP’ yesterday. I wanted to keep the card simple to show off the paper.  It was harder than I thought to be honest. 🙂  I used the ‘Amazing Birthday’ set with this.   I cut the greeting with the ‘Tags and Labels’ Framelits.  The black piece I embossed with the ‘Softly Falling’ Embossing Folder. I finished the card off with the Black Satin Stitched Ribbon and some Silver Thread.

3D projects, Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!, Tutorials


I know I told you I was going to share some more Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits cards and I will, but I HAVE to show you these bags. I realised the other day that there was less than a week left of some fantastic Sale-A-Bration products. I still had so much of the lovely ‘Perfectly Artistic’ DSP that I just HAD to use. What better way but to use it but to make some bags.

Here they are for you. I thought I would make 3 different ones. I will show you how to make them too.



This cute little pink one is very simple to make. I found the idea on the internet somewhere quite some time ago but I am not sure where now – sorry 🙂


Cut your paper to 15cm x 30cm.  (6″ x 12″)

On the 15cm (6″) side, score at 4cm. (1 1/2″)

On the 30cm (12″) side score at 10cm, 14cm, 24cm and 28cm.  (4″, 5 1/2″, 9 1/2″ and 11″)

Cut up on the score lines on the 30cm (12″) side up until it meets the other score line. Cut off the small tab at the end. Add adhesive on the small tab at the side and assemble. Add adhesive to the bottom tabs and fold up and adhere.

Decorate as you like. I have used the greeting from a Sale-A-Bration set ‘Botanicals For You’. I added a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper too for the dazzle factor. To close the bag I simply used a Wooden Clothespin over a folded Paper Doily. 



Here is a side view.


The Mint Macaron is another quick bag. You can find the tutorial to make this bag at ChicNScratch HERE.



This large bag is so easy to make.  I don’t know why it has taken me so long to make one of these. You can find the instructions on a number of blogs.

For mine, I took 2 sheets of the Basic Gray pattern from the pack. On 3 sides, score at 5cm (2″). Cut up on the tabs at the bottom. Place adhesive along the bottom of one sheet and join the 2 sheets together. Place adhesive to the side tabs on one sheet and assemble together.

TIP #1 you could if you like score on the top edge as well when you are scoring and then fold that score line forward to show the inside colour on the outside, if that makes sense? I had decided that I wanted a black edge. I cut strips from black card stock approximately 5cm (2″) wide and adhered that along the top edge. I think it makes a striking contrast.

TIP #2 for your ribbon handles.  I didn’t punch holes in my bags to add the ribbon.  I added the strong Tear Tape to each end of the ribbon and adhered them to inside of the bag.  To cover the ends I punched out an oval in card and adhered this over the ends.  It gives a neater finish I think.


I hope you like these bags. They were fun and I was surprised how easy they were to make. Go and make some yourself. 🙂

Until  next time,
