Madison Avenue Trio

by Joanne James26. January 2013 21:30

As promised, I have lots more Sale-A-Bration to share with you: today, a trio of cards featuring the other flower stamp in the Madison Avenue stamp set, along with some beautiful co-ordinating papers.

 

Two of the cards also highlight one of the new Pretty Petites stamps, effortlessly puched out with the new Petite Curly Punch. The Pool Party and Tangerine Tango ribbons and the button are also from the Sycamore Street Ribbons and Buttons Pack - and did you notice the embossing on the third card? This is courtesy of the new Vine Street Embossing Folder; I love the subtle texture - it gives the card an 'extra' dimension.

So, 6 new products - and you could have any of them free for every £45 spent during the Sale-A-Bration promotion. Sale-A-Bration runs until 22nd March, so who knows - if you start now, maybe you could collect them all?!

Stampin' Up Supplies:

Stamps: Madison Avenue, Pretty Petites

Paper: Pool Party, Island Indigo, Sycamore Street (DSP)

Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Tangerine Tango

Tools: Vine Street Embossing Folder, Petite Curly Label Punch, Circles Die, Scallop Border Punch

Finishing Touches: Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack

More Bloomin' Marvelous - and only one more day until Sale-a-bration 2013!

by Joanne James21. January 2013 21:36

Having spent most of the day outdoors today buidling snowmen and sledging with my children and generally making the most of the snow and an unexpected day off school, it's nice to sit all cosy and warm and share another card set with you.

So here is the second trio of cards I made with the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set, this time introducing the butterfly too:

A slightly more feminine colour palette I think, with the latest in-colour inks of Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple for the randomly stamped flowers and butterflies and some Gumball Green for the stems which I think just adds a bit of 'zing'.

I also hand cut one of the butterflies on the central card and popped it on a dimensional for added interest:

It was easy enough with my Paper Snips, but if you're not great with fiddly cutting out it can be punched in seconds with the Bitty Butterfly Punch, a new product in this year's Spring-Summer Seasonal Catalogue and available from the first of February. I have also used a mat of Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals or Gumball Green cardstock respectively and a little ribbon accent just to finish off. I really love this stamp set - and the sentiments are generic enough that they suit lots of occasions.

If you would like to recreate these cards yourself, the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set is one of 17 items that you can obtain for free for every £45 spent during the promotional period, starting tomorrow! Please drop me a line or give me a call if you would like more information.

Bloomin' Marvelous - Sale-a-bration Sneak Peek

by Joanne James6. January 2013 21:58

Today I wanted to give you a 'sneak peek' of some of the amazing goodies available as part of this year's Sale-a-bration promotion. Sale-a-bration begins on 22nd January to coincide with the launch of the new Spring-Summer catalogue and and runs until 22nd March. I've made a trio of cards using the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set, which is a great set with lots of uses and I think will become a firm favourite of mine.

 

Using a Whisper White card base, I stamped the flower image freehand on all of the cards in a combination of crumb cake, midnight muse and raspberry ripple. On the centre card, I randomly stamped each of the red and blue flower images a few times without re-inking to add depth. A sentiment and a touch of raspberry ripple stitched satin ribbon on each to add extra interest and done! The perfect card if you're running short on time.

I'll be back soon with another set of cards using this stamp set so pop by and have a look.

If you would like to recreate these cards yourself, the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set is one of 17 items that you can obtain for free for every £45 spent during the promotional period. Please contact me if you would like more information.
