Love, So Very Grateful (JAI#207 )

Hello Crafters,

At Just Add Ink this week, it’s a sketch challenge!

The minute I saw this challenge I knew what I was going to do, it was just the colours that I wasn’t sure about. Because I wanted to use the ‘love’ die from the expressions thinlits, I thought I should do something with pinks!

So Very Grateful

Some of the items used in this card are from the Sale-a-bration & Occasions Catalogues:

So Very Grateful

To create the banner edges, I placed the pink pirouette card stock into the side of the Decorative Label punch. Isn’t it a cute result?!!!

I didn’t have any ribbon in coordinating colours, so I used the Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon and coloured it by placing it onto the Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Ink pad and let the colour soak in. I used my heat tool to dry it so the ink didn’t run onto the So Saffron tag.

I think the pearls just finish this card off perfectly.

Be sure to have a go at some Challenges, they are great fun to play along and see what others design, so head over to Just Add Ink for more inspiration from the Design Team!

Tea Light Candle Gift Box

Hello Crafters,

Now that the long weekend is far behind us, I need to share with you some little tea light candle gift boxes that I have made in time for Mother’s Day!

I will be doing a workshop on these on Saturday 22 March, 10am. Email me if you would like to come along, or rsvp via my Facebook event!

I got a bit carried away creating these. I started with one and then did a couple of different colours according to the tea lights I had.

I started by stamping the images with the same ink as the card stock (tone on tone). I used So Very Grateful Stamp Set (Wood or Clear) which is in the Occasions Catalogue. Isn’t it just so pretty?!

I used my Big Shot machine to die cut the Chalk Talk framelits on the pink one and then found it easier to use the Decorative Label punch on the other two. Using a punch saves so much time and you can whip these up in no time.

The card stock colours used here are Tangerine Tango, Strawberry Slush & Wisteria Wonder. Come along to my workshop and you will see just how easy these are to make for yourself. You will have loads of gifts to give away once you try this!!!

Here is a close up!

So Very Grateful

Hello Stampers,

As you know, my Big Brown Box arrived from Stampin’ Up! a couple of days ago with my new supplies from the Sale-a-bration brochure & Occasions catalogue.

Here is another card I have created but this time a birthday card for a lovely lady.

The gorgeous background paper in called Sweet Sorbet and is from the Sale-a-bration brochure which if you place an order of $90 or more, you can get a packet for free! Yes you heard correct, free and it has 12 sheets in the pack!

The stamp is from the So Very Grateful Stamp Set in the new Occasions Catalogue, available for purchase on 28th January. Just let me know if you would like a copy of the catalogues mailed to you prior to the sale starting!

I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the image and stamp the sentiment in Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Canteloupe.
