Special Day for Someone Special and Inspire Create Challenges. Today is the day for another Inspire.Create.Challenge to go live. As you may know, we tend to have either a Colour, Theme or Sketch Challenge. This week was due to be a Sketch, but the sketch is totally blank!! Take a look:
Like I said. Totally blank. This means we are allowed to make anything we want, using anything we want!!! I thought I would take the opportunity to remind you that the Coordination Products are now available to buy from my online store. There are 6 amazing, while stocks last, products to choose from. Five sets of dies, two of which coordinate with stamp sets from the Mini Catalogue and they will both be carrying over to the Annual Catalogue!! But, if you buy them NOW you can use them towards a Qualifying order and earn FREE Sale-a-Bration Products. Those items are Nature’s Thoughts Dies (#153586) and Special Day Dies (#153587), if you buy them both today you will qualify for a Sale-a-Bration Level 1 item. It is the Special Day Dies that I am using today, but come back tomorrow to see the Nature’s Thoughts Dies in action.
How Cute is the coordinating stamp set? I could not resist making a really simple card with this set for you today. I grabbed a piece of Watercolour paper for the background and did a really simple wash of Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green. The Squirrel is in Terracotta Tile over stamped with Soft Suede. To get the two stamps to line up perfectly I simply grabbed my Stamparatus. If you have the Stamparatus on your Wish List, Sale-a-Bration is the PERFECT time to get it. Buy it today and you qualify for a Level 1 Sale-a-Bration item! I used the Stamparatus for the Balloons too, one in greens and one in blues – which do you prefer? Do let me know in the comments below.
The Balmy Blue mat is stamped with Balmy Blue ink and the larger flower. Then I just added the sentiments and the card was done. Really simple, especially with the dies to make cutting the images so quick and easy.
The sentiment is going to either make you smile or cringe. Which camp are you in? I am certainly in the smile camp, but I know others who are definitely not! To see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with, just click the ‘sketch’ above, or HERE
