SAB 'Best Day Ever' stamp set

Another pair of cards made with this stamp set. It just shows how versatile it is. Here I have used the little triangles. I have stamped the sentiment then cut into individual words and layered up on dimensionals.

On the second card I have made little windmills out of the triangles. I have kept this very simple and not added a sentiment. The cotton ribbon is great for small bows.

SAB Best Day Ever, stamp set again.

Another few makes using the 'Best Day Ever' stamp set.

Loved making this zig zag card even though there is a lot of fussy cutting. The little flowers in the stamp set make lovely little bees.

 I stamped onto crushed curry card then cut out. The lines on the body are accentuated with a marker pen. A candy dot was used for the head..

Fot this card I decided to try a single colour theme although in different shades. Hello honey, daffodil delight and crushed curry. A little piece of bakers twine to finish it off.

Sneek Peeks galore over the next few days.
Todays are made with the stamp set 'Best Day Ever' Its free with a £45 from the main catalogue or the spring/summer catalogue.

The choices in the SAB brochure are lovely. So you don't have to just stop at one item. SAB runs for three months and for every £45 spend you get a choice of a free item

These makes were for the SAB Stamping'Up! tour. I have seen a number of Project Life pages using this set. Thats my make for next week.

long time no blog....

Its ages since I last blogged and so much has changed. Firstly I have started a new job. Its only part time but it has taken me ages to re organise my routine. Then with Christmas so close I have spent hours making Christmas cards for friends, family and customers.
I have lots to share with you so here goes.
Weekly Deals
At the moment we know these are continuing until 5th January. This weeks has some really good deals and it is worth going online and ordering via my online shop. The dies have a good discount on them, I use both sets regularly. The 'in colour' marker pens are a great way of strting your collection. You can use these to ink stamps with so if you haven't got the ink pads these are a cheaper way to start getting the colours you want.
If you want further details message me. I have an order going in on Saturday if you would rather not order online.

I will be back tomorrow with some makes
