See Ya Later Sale-a-Bration stamp set


Happy February! Let’s hope it’s a bit drier and less windy than January. 

First of all, a big thank you to everyone who came along to my Launch Party yesterday. It was great to see everyone and we had a relaxing time eating cake, making cards and chatting about the fab new products in the Spring/Summer catalogue and Sale-a-Bration. 

Secondly, what do you think of my new-look blog? I’ve been working on it behind the scenes for a while but yesterday decided I may as well just roll out the changes, even if I still have some little bits I’d like to tweak. 

I made the background, header and buttons in My Digital Studio, with the addition of a free downloaded font and a secret bit of clipart which I’m sure you’ll spot! The blog background came out darker than I’d hoped but I’m sure we’ll get used to it. Let me know if you have trouble loading the page - if it’s an issue, I can remove the background to speed things up a bit. 

So, today’s project features a bit of February sunshine to give the weather some encouragement to stay nice! I made this card using the new Banner Punch from Stampin’ Up!® It’s a Sale-a-Bration item which means you can earn it FREE with a £45 purchase. That’s pretty cool as everyone loves freebies!

There’s a stamp set to match, too, which I showed you on this card. But here I’ve used it to make some funky sun rays behind this very cheery greeting. The clouds are made using the Word Bubbles Framelits dies, which co-ordinate with the Just Sayin’ stamp set. They’re actually thought bubbles but make perfect clouds. This set of dies was one of the products I demoed at my Launch Party - but I still haven’t photographed all the projects, so they will just have to wait I’m afraid.

Cardstock: Soft Sky, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Ink: Daffodil Delight

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
