Something Lacy

This weeks Weekly Deals include the in colour pens and skin tones Blendabilities - do have a look!
I have an order going in tomorrow - just as soon as I've narrowed my list down.

This card was very much CASE'd from Coastal Crafters Blog - as soon as I saw the cards I had to try one, all the colourways look great.

I've used Elegant Eggplant for my card.

The background is a new stamp called Something Lacy - gorgeous for backgrounds.

The sentiment is one of the current Sale-a-Bration offerings called Simply Wonderful and with a couple of punched circles the card is finished with an Itty Bitty punched flower and gem.

There is so much inspiration out there.  I shall be trying some more tomorrow after a crafty chat over coffee to set me up for the day.

A wreath isn't just for Christmas!

I used the Wondrous Wreath bundle lots at Christmas and the good news is that the stamp set & framelits are still available to buy in the new seasonal catalogue.

Of course it is never too early to make a few Christmas cards but how lovely is this for a spring card too?

I've only just thought that this embossing folder is no longer available - I do hope you got one before it was too late!  I'll make another sample with a different folder.

Focusing on the rest though I have used the following:
Blushing Bride card & ink for the base card, bow & flowers
Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow ink for the wreath

Finished with some pearls.

Lotus Blossom

A card today that we made at our Bloomin' Buds meeting this week - a gorgeous colour combo of Soft Suede, Wisteria Wonder & Crumb Cake ribbon to finish.

The stamp set is Lotus Blossom and currently free with a £45 spend - I think this set will be really popular.

The card also uses a new embossing folder called Spring Flowers and a new Ornate Tag Topper Punch.

Some matching DSP and a border cut with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch.

So many new products to play with ... so little time!

If you fancy a party during Sale-a-bration let me know - you not only get free sets but a £200 spend gets an extra £20 credit to add to the £30 you would already get.

What are you waiting for?!

Simply Wonderful

A quick & easy card today CASED from the recent SU Sale-a-bration tour.

This uses a set you can get for free with a £45 spend called Simply Wonderful.

I've just stamped the little flower over the background of a Whisper White card using Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay ink.

I've then used matching Stampin' Write Markers on one of the sentiments (there are 6 in the set) and punched out with the extra-large oval and mounted on a punched Decorative Label.

This is really quick to do and looks great in loads of different colour ways.

New goodies & freebies

So much to share today so not a good day to be feeling a tad under the weather, so briefly:

The new seasonal catalogue is now live with lots of gorgeous new goodies in it.

To make it even better Sale-a-bration also launched today so for every £45 spend you get a freebie - this ranges from exclusive (not available to buy) stamps to being able to get a set of blendabilities for free - or several if you fancy!

If you have a party you also get an extra £20 of hostess spend if your party totals over £200 and extra freebies if you join during the period too.

Lots to share another day - if you need any catalogues let me know - if you want to place an order give me a shout too!

New links on my sidebar.

Back shortly!

Coming soon ...

So, not so much of a sneak peek today as a full spoiler!

Coming in the seasonal catalogue which goes live on Tuesday is a bow punch - how fab is this?!

This card is A6 to give you an idea of scale.

The punch has 3 elements - the actual bow, the tail and the centre wrap so you punch twice to make both sides.  I think this will be really popular.  An excellent £15.50 investment!

All other items used in this card:
Card: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss
DSP: Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist
Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder
Itty Bitty Banners stamp
Bitty Banners Framelits

Get saving those pennies!

Last chance

Happy New Year!

I haven't been as good as I could of with tempting you with Christmas goodies, if there is anything you haven't got yet from the seasonal catalogue it ends on Monday.

A few bits are being carried over but lots will not be seen again!!

The NEW seasonal catalogue is live from next Tuesday and I think it's fab.  Sale-a-bration also launches where you get a freebie with every £45 spend - there are some great 'money can't buy' offers in this too.

If you haven't got a catalogue but would like one let me know.

If you do my first order will be going in on Tuesday - so get in there first (well, second as I have a queue!!).

Happy crafting.
