There is now only one day left to order from the current Spring Mini catalogue! Which means that on Monday I can post a link here to the brand new Summer Mini!!
I’ll be putting my final orders through tomorrow evening before 10pm and it’s not too late to drop me line for your last minute orders (you can pay by credit card over the phone.)
I’ll miss many of the items in the current Mini …….not least of all the gorgeous Purely Pomegranate Satin Ribbon (pictured above with the Berry Bliss Designer series Papers). I’ve used the satin ribbon here to tie up some lucky door prizes for workshop guests over the next little while……….if you are a winner, I hope you enjoy using the ribbon and the die-cut Simply Scrapping stickers in your package :-).
The Berry Bliss papers co-ordinate very well with the images in “One Of a Kind”- also from the current Mini. Here is a card I received recently from Andrea Lowcock using this set:
And don’t forget the co-ordinating Boho Blossoms Punch which allows you to punch out the three flowers quickly and easily to make a gorgeous card like the one above.
Speaking of punches……….
I’ve been playing a bit with my 5 Petal Flower Punch. This punch is great to use with left over scraps of Double-Sided Paper and looks great when you layer the punched images.
Here’s another sample…….
I have used Spring Break papers here and made the button out of a circle punched out with the 3/4 inch circle punch which fits the smaller of the clear buttons the are sold by Stampin’ Up!. These are really fun to use as they allow you to customize your buttons to suit a project by grabbing whatever co-ordinating paper or card stock you have on hand. To make the flowers here, I’ve first scrunched them before sanding them with a sanding block to rough them up a bit (I was using them on a page with photos of my son and hubby and wanted them to look as masculine as possible!)
And again, speaking of punches, I thought I would leave you tonight with another sneak peek from the Summer Mini before it is officially released on Monday.
For both creations above I’ve used the Scallop Square Punch with the new set called “Say It With Scallops”.
You’ll also catch a glimpse of the fabulous new Chunky Sprinkles Glitter which comes in 4 great colours :-).
There’s a new jumbo wheel called “Lots of Dots” which I had to have when I saw the card my very talented friend and fellow demonstrator, Linda Higgins, made with it. The Congrats! card above was inspired by her creation.
Now here’s a little challenge for you, Stampin’ Up! are offering the Scallop Square Punch in only one size……..you might have noticed in the image above I have created two Scallop Squares. Can you guess how?
I’ll be back later on to show you!!
