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


I have a simple card for you today. I have used the beautiful Delicate Dahlias stamp set.

I have simply stamped the lined images on white card and layered it with the gingham print from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.

The Delicate Dahlias stamp set is a Distinktive style set. This set has the lined images and more solid images that you can use to colour. Or you can colour with Stampin’ Blends or Pencils.

This set is available now only during Sale-A-Bration.

Available now from 3rd August – 30th September. You can pick out your choice of product for free with your qualifying orders (over $90 or $180 AUD).

Have a great day,

I wasn’t sure about these cards and I’m still not but you know I am showing you anyway because sometimes things don’t always go right.

For these 2 cards I wanted to use the Daisy Lane to make a card for #simplestamping which is a big focus of Stampin’ Up! at the moment but then step it up a little for a Casual or avid stamper.  

Firstly to define the two.  Simple stamping is for those just starting out with limited supplies and putting together a card with card, ink and stamps.

A Casual stamper is one who likes to make a card semi-regularly you might stay.  They are starting to collect a few more supplies and is using more involved steps and techniques.

An Avid Stamper who is one that you could say is “obsessed”.  They collect all the tools and stamps and will create very regularly.

Who do you say you would be??

We have a card more for the simple stamping first.

This card is not quite one layer.  There is the Rich Razzleberry card base and Petal Pink card mat.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Day stamp set with the little flourish from A Big Thank You.  So there is more than one stamp set that you would normally use on a simple card for someone who has very limited supplies.

We have the next one which is for the Casual/Avid stamper. 

This one has a couple of more layers.  Using the same stamp sets though.  Adding the extra elements gives it a little more detail.

I hope you like them. As I said I am still not sure about them and the lighting is not great but there they are for you.

Have a great day,

Stampin’ Up! is all about simple stamping at the moment.  I find that a bit hard but I needed to make some quick cards the other day so I went with some simple stamping.

This Beauty Abounds set is a lovely one.  I love the Bokeh style dots.  You can create some fun, whimsical cards with this.

Colours are Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Memento Black.  I stamped a butterfly on scrap white and coloured it with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends then fussy cut it out.

You could do a lot with this set.  I have seen some lovely samples online so I need a little more play with it I think. 🙂

It is available as a Bundle with the gorgeous Butterfly Beauty Thinlits for $97.  You can buy the stamps alone for $40.

Available in my store now -> HERE.
