I can’t believe that Sale-A-Bration and the Summer Mini Catalogue ends TODAY!! These last couple of months have simply flown by! The SAB choices this year have been absolutely awesome and I am sad to see them come to an end. I have shown you a lot of projects using them over the past couple of months. I still have some I haven’t shown you yet. I will see if I get around to that.
Today I want to show you a couple of cards from the Summer Mini. Poor Mini Catalogue 😦 I think some of these have been overlooked because there has been so much to show from Sale-A-Bration. These cards are using the set “Bold Blossom” which is a really cute set and so versatile. This co-ordinates so nicely with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.
The original idea for this card came from Jill’s Ink here. I changed the colours and the greeting but I loved the idea. I used Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade. The greeting is from ‘Sincere Salutations’. Now that’s a set I haven’t used for a while!!
This next card I demonstrated at a workshop recently.
Colours are Lucky Limeade and Pretty in Pink. The flowers were stamped on scrap Whisper White card and punched out with the 3/4″ circle punch. They were raised up off the card with dimensionals and a Rhinestone added to the centre of each to give it the ‘Bling’ Factor! For the top of the card, I punched the edge of a piece of Pretty in Pink card with the Scallop Border Punch and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Stripes Embossing Folder. I tied a piece of Pretty in Pink Grosgrain ribbon around it before adhering it to the card. The greeting is from ‘Fabulous Phrases’.
Well I hope you have got your free Sale-A-Bration stamps, paper or brad and ribbon pack. Maybe you have got them all!!! I have enjoyed them all. But tomorrow the Autumn Mini Catalogue starts and that has some fantastic products too. I look forward to showing you them over the next weeks and months. I hope to start showing you some tomorrow so I hope you stop by again soon.
You might have seen these new Triple Layer punches in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue. They are great. You can create various layers and patterns by assembling the punch outs in various ways. I thought I would put together a chart to show you some of the ways you can layer these punches. This is using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch. I used the colours from the Ice Cream Parlour ribbon and buttons that I had lying around. They are Pacific Point, Old Olive, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight. I hope you can see them clearly enough???
I think this is just the beginning of what you can do with this punch. Maybe you can come up with some other suggestions. Here are some close ups of some of them.
Apart from the various flowers you can create a tag with the outer scallop and a centre. You can pierce a hole in the top and add some twine to tie it on to your card or project.
Layer all the different punch outs together for a fancy flower, or create a cute embellishment to add to a card!
I had a lot of fun putting this chart together and I think it will be very useful.
This punch works differently to the other punches, so I came across a few videos on YouTube to see how they work. You can check this one out here if you need some tips.
Have a play with this punch and see what you can create.
Have a great weekend. We have a long weekend here, so I’m not sure what we will get up to. I really hope I can get some stamping in. With school holidays at the moment I am not getting much done. That’s ok, we have been doing lots of other fun stuff!!
Thanks for stopping by,
Last Monday I got together with Andrea for our regular stamping day. It was a shame that Leonie and Tracey couldn’t join us, but it was nice to just chat together. I have to say though, we only created one card all day. That doesn’t matter – it’s nice to just chill out and chat!!!
I brought along my new Blossom Bouquet punch. It was good to have a play around with it. It operates a little differently to the other Stampin’ Up! punches. If you would like to know how to use this punch then head over here to check it out.
This is the card I created.
The colours used are Confetti White, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake. The greeting is from the new Hostess set “Happiest Birthday Wishes”.
It was based on this card by Mary Brown at stampercamper.com. Andrea had the card saved for her to CASE sometime. The funny thing is when I got home and had a look I had saved the exact same card, so it was good to tick one off the list that we both had.
There are lots of ways to use this great punch and I am looking forward to using it a lot more soon. As for now. I’m off to bed- it is way late AGAIN!!!!
See you again soon,
