Live Crafting REPLAY with Liz – Featuring a Sale-a-Bration Mash-up! Can you believe that today is the very LAST DAY to make the most of the Sale-a-Bration offers. Last week I used lots of the FREE items to make three really cute cards, two of which are already winging their way to two lucky viewers who were watching the Live.
Driving By Rainbows
I love the FREE Driving By stamp set so much it is perfect for so many people and so many occasions. A lot of people will presume that it is most appropriate for men, but I am so much more of a petrol head than my husband. I actually made this card with my hairdresser in mind. She has a VW Camper Van that she uses as a base when she is going mountain climbing or walking with her dog.
I thought I would do a bit of paper piecing for this card, stamping the van on one of the FREE Sunshine and Rainbow papers before cutting out the roof and body and sticking them to a fussy cut van. It is like the paper dolls I remember dressing so many years ago.
I coloured the ‘chrome’ with Smoky Slate Blends and the tyres with Light Black Blend, before adding some Clear Wink of Stella to the ‘chrome’ and glass. Such fun.
Adding the van to more Sunshine and Rainbow paper layered onto a Basic White card base and Magenta Madness mat. Even the strip with the stamped sentiment is from the paper. The finishing touch was to add some of the new Iridescent Jewels, which, because they are clear, allow the colour of the paper to shine through. And ‘yes’ my hairdresser loved the card!
Sunshine and Rainbow Envelopes
The FREE Sunshine and Rainbows Paper works so well with the Rainbow of Happiness Bundle, so I thought I should make a card using some of the dies that aren’t as obvious to use with it. I love the idea of having lots of little envelopes on the front of a card and that you could add small pieces of card to each of them with a little message on each.
The spacing of the envelopes was quite simple because I used one of the striped papers, which makes it really easy to get this right. If you are going to add notes to each of the envelopes, do make sure you use a strong adhesive to add the envelopes.
Although the envelope flaps will tuck under the bottom of the envelope, to make sure they will stay in place I decided to add a Magenta Madness heart to the front of each. I added these with a mini glue dot folded in half so that the top was free of adhesive and could be used as a place to tuck the flap.
With all the bright colours going on, I decided to use a Basic Black layer between the paper and the Basic White card base. A little be of contrast makes such a difference to the finished project. This one is winging its way to Germany and Marion Koenig. I hope you enjoy it Marion. It will be left blank for you to send to someone else.
Simply Marbelous Awesome Otter s
Moving away from Sunshine and Rainbows a little, this project uses the Simply Marbleous FREE Paper, embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing folder. To add a little more to the paper, I used a Blending Brush and some Pool Party ink to centre the image.
The Otter is coloured with Pool Party Blends and some of the new Natural Tone Blends, currently available as a full collection or as individual Combos. They will be in the new Annual Catalogue, but if you want them all, you can order them using just one number. Get them today and you are so close to earning a Sale-a-Bration item too.
I die cut the image using one of the dies from the Rainbow of Happiness Bundle, adding it to the paper with some Dimensionals and adding a Sheer Pool Party Ribbon bow to cover the whole of the tag.
The sentiment is from the Awesome Otters stamp set, which I stamped in Tuxedo Black and die cut using another of the dies from the Rainbow of Happiness Bundle. The finishing touches were a Pool Party layer and some Holiday Rhinestones. This card is winging its way all the way to Jenny Edwards in Western Australia. Not sure how long it will take to arrive, but hopefully not too long!
So, have I whetted your appetite for a final sneaky order before Sale-a-Bration is gone for a few months?
