Never Ending Card

Hello Crafters,

I have made my first ever 30 second video and it is terrible but thought I would share it anyway, as I found it very hard to show you in pictures how this card works!

It is the never ending folding card, so as you open it, it just keeps on opening. Watch the video and you will see it in action.

I have used the gorgeous, but now retired, Sweet Sorbet DSP with Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock. I haven’t yet finished decorating and embellishing it yet, but you get the gist of what is going on here!

Here is the front of the card

Don’t you agree that kids (and adults alike) would find this fascinating?!!!! My girls loved it!

Occasions & Sale-a-bration

Sweet Sorbet Sunburst Baby

Hello Crafters,

Well, it’s not long now until the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration begins on 28th January!

Here is another sneak peek at some of the items that will be available.

This Sunburst technique is so easy to create and it showcases a variety of the papers in the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper pack, which includes the colours: Crisp Canteloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Basic Black, Whisper White, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit & Sahara Sand.

I have also used one of the stamps in the Baby, We’ve Grown stamp set available in the new Occasions Catalogue. The other is from That’s the Ticket, stamped in Pistachio Pudding and cut out with paper snips, then adhered with dimensionals.

My card matt is Sahara Sand on a white card base and the circle was punched out twice with the 2 1/2″ circle punch.

I used the coordinating Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the image.

I hope you like my baby card showcasing some new products available from 28th January!

Happy Crafting,

Kate

Simple Stems, part 1

Hello Stampers,

As you know, I am having loads of fun playing with my new supplies from the Sale-a-bration brochure & Occasions catalogue.

Here are some more lovely samples using the Simple Stems Stamp Set which is in the new Occasions Catalogue, available for purchase from 28th January. Just let me know if you would like a copy of the catalogues mailed to you prior to the sale starting!

The gorgeous background papers are delightful and I am finding it really hard to choose between the different packs, so I got a pack of each!!!

Sweet Sorbet is from the Sale-a-bration brochure which if you place an order of $90 or more, you can get a packet for free!

Water Colour Wonder is in the soon to be released Occasions Catalogue and is to die for.

The stamp set, Simple Stems, also has two of its images that coordinate with the Secret Garden Framelits Dies.

Okay, so now for some samples ~ In this first card I used the Water Colour Wonder DSP and stamped the images in Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Canteloupe.
