Case Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 211

Oh boy how the month is flying by.

Jane's third challenge of the month is a colour one. I love this combination - so sunny. Fingers crossed that Spring is finally on it's way.

I wanted to try something a little different today so I actually have three cards to share with you.

Coming Soon - Part 2

Today I'm sharing a sneak peek of projects made using the second new Sale-A-Bration (SAB) that will be available tomorrow until 31 March on a while supplies last basis.

The second stamp set is called Reverse Words and it consists of 2 red rubber stamps that will be available in either Clear Mount or Wood Mount sets.

Coming soon - Part 1

Just stopping by really quickly to share a couple of projects I've made using one of the new Sale-A-Bration (SAB) stamp sets that will be available from Tuesday, 21 February.

Both of these cards feature the Make a Medallion stamp set. This photopolymer set has 8 stamps which can be stamped in the same colour or different ones.

I've used Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo and Pool Party inks on both cards along with the Lovely Lace embossing folder. The bottom card also features some of the new Glimmer Paper that comes as a pack of 6"x6" sheets (4 each of Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum).

I've designed a third card but I'm saving that as the Make n Take for team training which is next Friday.

I think that this new stamp set could quickly take over as the most wanted SAB item. At the moment the most popular item is the Hey Chick stamp set. Then again, I suspect that the glimmer paper will be really popular too.

You can get a hold of these new items from Tuesday, and you can choose one item per £45 spent (excluding P&P).

PS On Monday, I'll have another couple of projects to share made using the other new SAB stamp set.

An old favourite

This week has been spent preparing for the Make It show (which is on next week) and also catching up on bits and pieces.

I've also done a little stamping (and colouring) and the following are one of the projects I've been working on.

I've used the Lovely As A Tree stamp set and the new Watercolor Pencils to decorate these notebooks and also the gift bags.

I used a Blender Pen to colour in the leaves and acorn. 

For the bags I cut out the image using the largest of the square framelits from the Stitched Shapes framelits. All of the images are layered onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock and then a piece of Soft Suede that has been embossed using the Woodgrain embossing folder.

These bags and notebooks will be winging their way to new team members who join during the rest of Sale-A-Bration (ends 31 March 2017).

Don't forget that during Sale-A-Bration, you can purchase a starter kit for £99 and for that you get to choose £130 worth of Stampin' Up! products plus two extra stamp sets (any value) for free. If you would like to find out more, please check out the following link - Join In the Fun
