I had my first Stampin' Up! delivery since I was at the OnStage
Convention two weeks ago.
I was very pleasantly surprised to find a roll of our narrow Solid
Red Ribbon inside the box!
It was a reward offered by SU to all demos who took
part in a Sale-a-bration challenge, during the last couple of weeks of SAB!
activities in the challenge were aimed at building our businesses, it was well worth doing
- and receiving the ribbon was a bonus!
card is my first play with the Sharing Sweet Thoughts Stamp Set, which
is in the 2017 - 2018 Annual Catalogue in
support of the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
For every one of these
stamp sets sold, Stampin' Up! donates €2.25/£2.00 to RMHC.
create the ladybirds in the jar I had two options to make them to be in
front of the leaves and branches - one was masking, and the other was
fussy cutting. I chose fussy cutting, as it was the easier option!
The jar and the two lids
co-ordinate with the Everyday Jar Framelits Dies, but I decided I wanted
to cut them out by hand so I didn't finish up with a white edge all the
Basic Black Archival Ink, I stamped one jar, three branches, four
ladybirds, three butterflies, and one lid.
I used Marker Pens as follows
to colour the images:-
Ladybirds - Real Red
Branches - Soft Suede & Pear Pizzazz
Butterflies - Lemon Lime Twist & Tranquil Tide
stamped the lid with the shaker holes in it, in Basic Black Archival
Ink, and then I stamped over it using Real Red Ink!
There's a grass
stamp in the Sharing Sweet Thoughts Stamp Set, which I used with Pear Pizzazz Ink to stamp some as if
it's growing in the bottom of the jar.
chose the sentiment from the Beautiful You Stamp Set, and I painted the
words usng my Basic Black and Real Red Marker Pens.
I huffed on the
stamp, and stamped onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock (CS).
I was so
very pleased with how well the colour had stamped! I die cut the sentiment
using one of the Stitched Shape Oval Framelits Dies.
to ring the changes on my card a bit, I adhered three strips of the
Real Red ribbon around the top two levels.....but no bow!
I adhered the sentiment on Dimensionals to sit on top of the ribbon.
Inside the card I
adhered a layer of Whisper White Cardstock, then I stamped and coloured a
branch and a ladybird in the bottow right-hand corner.
A fun birthday
card waiting for the right recipient!
That's it from me today, so until tomorrow, happy crafting.
