Well that was nearly very interesting. As those of you who have been following me for a while may know, I film my videos and write my posts in batches as I find that really works for me. I then schedule them to post either on YouTube or on my website at the same time. I have done three videos in this batch, and thought I had uploaded them and attached them to the correct post. Well not quite, so you nearly got the wrong ones paired up, which might have been interesting.
Anyway, today’s is a card using the Window Whopping stamp set, with a hint of Dragonfly Dreams on the original card, but otherwise, just the one stamp set. one ink pad, and for the card I videoed, only Whisper White and Wisteria Wonder Cardstock, really monotone, with just a pop of pink in the ribbon.
I love challenging myself to use a very few supplies occasionally. It is so easy to play with everything, but I think it is important to remember that not everyone has lots of product to play with, and I see it as part of my job to produce projects for those people too. Having said that, Sale-a-Bration is a perfect time to buy some extra bits and pieces because you can also get some free stuff; one free item from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue for each £45 you spend, and there are some new lines about to be added, including a couple of new stamp sets and, my personal favourite, some coloured glimmer papers!!! Watch this space for some projects using that.
Oh, and did you notice I managed to avoid doing a Valentine’s project today! Now what to do with all that left over ‘Sending Love’ Paper. Hmmm, I think I will have to have a think about that and see what I can come up with. Watch this space for the results of that challenge. Give me a day or two to think…
I hope you enjoy this project. If you need any supplies, they are listed below and you can just click on the image to go over to my online shop. If you spend £25 and use the hostess code, you will automatically become a VIP Member and get all the wonderful extras that come with that, I have already mentioned the Sale-a-Bration deal for FREE products, but remember that if you are thinking of becoming a member of the Stampin’ Up! family, now is the moment to dip your toe in the water, as you will get to choose two full price stamp sets to add to your starter kit, for FREE, so £130 of product PLUS two free stamp sets, all for £99 including P&P. WOW!!
