-{production line cards}-

Finally got round to tidying my craft table the other week, and couldn't bear to throw away the little punched bits and bobs that seem to accumulate.  So tried to use them up without adding too many other extras.

-{fresh vintage love}-

I was thinking the other day, if someone wanted to start making some cards on a limited budget, what would I suggest?

So, I set myself a task, make some cards with no more than 2 stamp sets, one ink pad, and a couple of different coloured cardstock.

Here is what I made using the (in my humble opinion) absolutely luscious set from the Saleabration catalogue.  The set of 5 stamps is FREE with any purchase over £45 (not including postage).

Ok, so this one has 3 different colours of card, but it could easily have been just 2.
I was inspired to do the border design along the top from a card my SU grandma Monica Gale made, see it >here<.

I masked off a square and experimented with creating lighter effects by stamping onto a scrap of paper before applying to my card.  

I'm loving using Naturals Ivory as a card base at the moment, not just because it creates a neutral background but it's also a bargain at £6.25 for 40 sheets - that's less than 8p a card (C6 size)

You are Loved, and much more...

I just wanted to show you the versatility of one of the beautiful sets in the mini catalogue.


Although it has a "love" theme, it is very versatile, and can be used for other occasions.
Here is a birthday card using squares cut from the heart motif.




Remember if you spend over £45 you can choose one FREE gift from the Saleabration catalogue, to see it click >here<

Keyring magic!

Made this keyring using various stamps, Stazon ink and shrink plastic.  Don't forget to punch a hole in the plastic before you heat it, the large hole of the Cropadile is perfect.  



I made a box for it to go in, and covered it with a strip of the gorgeous paper available with ther Saleabration offer, and made a flower with the Blossom Party Die.  If you look closely you can see the flower is edged with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.
