Today I’m hopping again with my fellow team mates the Pootler’s and this time we’re featuring projects made using products from the new Sale-A-Bration Brochure. These are exclusive products which are only available free with a purchase of £45 or above until the end of March.
On my card today I’m featuring three of my favourite products from the brochure, the So Hoppy Together stamp set, the Lovely Lipstick Foil card and the Botanical Butterfly DSP which compliments the Gingham Gala Suite in the Spring/Summer catalogue.
So here’s my card, how cute is that little frog? I knew as soon as I saw this set he would be perfect for a Valentine’s card and if you wanted to make him a her just add some eyelashes with a Stampin’ Marker.
Here’s a close up of the frog coloured in Call Me Clover, Granny Apple Green and Pineapple Pucker Stampin’ Blends. The hearts he’s sitting on came from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits which is part of the All My Love Suite. I added some adhesive sheets to some of the Lipstick Foil and some Whisper White card stock and ran them both through the Big Shot with the die. I used the Foil piece as my outline and then once stuck to my card used the hearts form the Whisper White piece to fill the gaps, with the help of the Take Your Pick tool of course!
I’m hoping I can stock up on the Botanical Butterfly DSP before it sells out because I just adore that black gingham paper and want loads of it.

Today I’m taking part in the Pootler’s team blog hop showcasing our favourite products from the new Spring Summer catalogue. There’s a lot to love in this catalogue and it was hard to decide what to share with you today. I decided on my favourite bundle Butterfly Gala, which contains a great stamp set and the best butterfly fly punch I think Stampin’ Up! has come out with, with two gorgeous butterflies. I’ve paired this bundle with the new Crackle Paint background, which has brought back many happy memories of playing with crackle paint as a kid, so I’m glad we now have the same effect but much quicker.
The first card I made was in Highland Heather, a colour I haven’t used much but has created a lovely soft card.
For the next card I brightened it up by using Lovely Lipstick, this was my favourite card for highlighting how good the Crackle Paint background is.
For my final card I used Flirty Flamingo just so I could add some of the lovely new 1/8″ sheer Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack, which I adds a lovely soft feeling to the card.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards today and I’d love it if you would visit some of my fellow teammates and see their wonderful creations with the new products. Simply click the blue button below and follow the links to each blog.
Enjoy and I’ll see you next time.
It’s that time of year again when my team mates and I are celebrating the start of a new catalogue with a blog hop featuring our favourite new products from the Autumn/Winter catalogue. There are so many gorgeous products in this catalogue that it took me a while to decide what to make, but the gorgeous Dashing Deer bundle was calling to me so here’s what I came up with after a little play.
Teamed with the Joyous Noel Speciality DSP and a basic layout using the Layering Ovals Framelits as a focal point I think I’ve created three lovely and very different looking cards. This gorgeous paper has copper foiling on one side of each sheet and is the perfect background for that deer die cut.
To finish off this first card I embossed the Happiest Christmas Wishes in copper and die cut from the label in the Petals and More Framelits set and I also added three copper flowers which are dies from the Detailed Deer Framelits.
For the second card I wanted the colour combo to be Merry Merlot and Gold, which shows that the back sides of the Joyous Noel paper are just as gorgeous. I love how well that deer stamped, I think its just beautiful. For the swirly corners I definitely recommend using the multipurpose adhesive sheets as those swirls are delicate.
For my third card I wanted to add more interest to the oval in the middle so I created a background by firstly sponging on some Pool Party to the top of the oval. I then stamped three trees from the Timeless Tidings stamp set. To create the snowy effect I cut out another oval and then cut it in half using a wiggly line. I then took the bottom half and covered it in Wink of Stella which when dried gave a lovely glistening effect just like snow. I think the new Frosted White Shimmer Paint would also have a similar effect.
So thats my little celebration of the Dashing Deer Bundle from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue.
