New Saleabration Items and Some Saleabration Cards

Copy of Untitled (8)

I've been enjoying making some cards with the cute Adorable Owls stamp set - one of our Saleabration freebie options.  This card also features the Fancy Flora DSP from the Jan - April Mini Catalogue.  I cut the stitched circle windows with Stylish Shapes Dies.

Stampin' Up have added some extra annual catalogue items to the Saleabration freebie options for February.  Check the full selection here:

I quite love the elegant Favored Flowers DSP and have been making some cards with that paper lately.  Here's a few.

Another favourite Saleabration paper is the Dainty Flowers DSP.  Grab a sharp pair of scissors and try cutting some of the floral pieces.

New YouTube Video: Favored Flowers DSP Cards

Have put together a new YouTube video to give you a look at a batch of cards I made using the Saleabration Favored Flowers DSP.  The first few are simple cards using just a handful of supplies.  The last couple are a bit more stepped up if you've got a few extra tools in your stash.  I hope you like them.

Happy creating.

Stampin' Up: Favored Flowers DSP - Simple Cards

Favored flowers cards simple

I've been enjoying creating with the Favored Flowers DSP (from our Saleabration range) this week.  It is such elegant paper and I love the colours.  Has some sheets perfect for fussing cutting (I'll have some examples in my next post.)  For these cards I kept it super simple for those who have just paper, cardstock, ink and a greeting stamp.  I cut the paper to the same size as my base card front.  (14.8 x 10.5cm)  Then stamped the thanks (from Kind and Sincere stamp set at the bottom of a piece of 10.5cm wide cardstock in a coordinating shade.  Trim just above the top of the greeting to make your greeting panel.  You could substitute any largish greeting from your stamp collection.  I had some of the Dragonfly Trinkets on my desk so added those as a finishing touch.  (I used a couple of glue dots.  Roll slightly so they fit the wings well.)

I'll be back soon with some stepped up cards using this same paper for those with a few more bits and bobs in their craft stash.  

Happy creating.

These cute owls from Adorable Owls stamp set have been very popular too.  


It is a little on the warm side in my craft room this week so I think I might take some stamped owls and some colouring Blends into the cooler part of the house for some therapeutic colouring time.  

Happy stamping.  Cheers, Sue

Waves of the ocean card

I just adore this stunning Waves Of The Ocean DSP and I can't believe it is still there in the clearance rack sale.  Priced at just $8.10 I was sure that would sell out very fast.  The coordinating Waves Gems are there too if you'd like something to match.
