Father’s Day in Australia is this Sunday. I’ve had a few posts in the last month with ideas for cards, but this week I’m giving you 4 back to back Father’s Day creations. Something for everyone! Or, if you don’t need a Father’s Day Card – swap out the sentiment for something you do need (happy birthday, thanks, hello…) and you’ll have 4 days of inspiration for cards for men/boys.
Part 2 – Celebrating Stampin’ Up!’s current Good Greetings promotion. Until 31st October, every order that is $300+ (excluding shipping) will not only receive the usual rewards & benefits, but also the exclusive, limited edition Good Greetings stamp set.
Want an even better deal? Add items from the Clearance Rack – Good Greetings + Clearance Rack = Great Deal! These pretty notecards were made using one of my all time favourite DSPs – Watercolour Wonder (which is currently $7.59 on the Clearance Rack) and sentiments from Good Greetings. Tempted yet? Get together with some friends and place a $300 order – share the hostess benefits…. and Good Greetings? I’ll leave that to you to decide whose craft room that lives in! See here if you’d like some ‘rock, paper, scissors’ strategy! Kelly x
Announcing another wonderful Stampin’ Up! promotion. Until 31st October, every order that is $300+ (excluding shipping) will not only receive the usual rewards & benefits, but also the exclusive, limited edition Good Greetings stamp set.
And while, I’m sharing great deals with you, Stampin’ Up! have updated their Clearance Rack. New additions include DSPs, card kits, embellishments & much more. These gorgeous notecards were made using Season of Style DSP (find it on the clearance rack) and sentiments from Good Greetings. All orders of $300+ receive a free stamp set during the promotional period – including online, combined orders & workshops. Go crazy – it’s too good not to! Kelly x
I think the second verse of ‘Oh Christmas Tree’ pretty much sums up my love for the new Tree Punch & matching Festival of Trees Photopolymer Stamp Set. Another fabulous addition to my SU! stash from the just released holiday catalogue (have you got your copy yet?). Matching sets always make card making a breeze and this one is no exception. I’m looking forward to experimenting with this card – I’ve got a shaker card in mind using the Tree Punch & new Confetti Stars Punch. Oh Christmas tree – how I adore thee! Kelly x
From today until 5th January 2015, you will be able to order a whole new range of wonderful stamping goodies. During the week I made this Christmas sample using some of my pre-order lovelies. I’m looking forward to making more cards to spread the Christmas cheer this year. 17 weeks to go! Kelly x
“Just because” cards are my favourite. No particular reason – just someone that you might be thinking of or would like to send some “pretty” to. It’s always a nice change in the snail mail pile to receive something that fits into the ‘lovely’ category rather than the practical category. For this card I used lots of my ‘favourites’ to make it extra special.
My favourite DSP: In every pack of DSP I have an instant favourite. In Back to Black, it was the feathers.
My favourite technique: This week’s favourite is the “Baby Wipe Technique”. Take a baby wipe, add drops of different coloured ink refills [I used all the 2014-16 in colours except Tangelo Twist] and use it as a stamp pad. To get a little more bleed, I lightly sprayed my inky baby wipe with a water filled Stampin’ Spritzer.
My favourite stamps: I’m still in love with the feather from “A Happy Hooray” and “And Many More” is getting a steady workout at the moment.
My favourite colour collection: Blackberry Bliss & it’s In Colour friends are still my favs!
Actually, I love everything about this card! Is there anyone you’d like to send a ‘just because’ card to this week? I guarantee it would put a smile on anyone’s face and that’s a great way to finish the week. Kelly x
