SAS Cards cont... & Blog giveaway.

"Thoughts & Prayers" stamp set is my favourite set, at the moment anyway, lol. Proving to be so so versatile. The branch is "Old Olive" & the Trio Flowers are More Mustard & Ruby red along with the mount piece that has the flowered branch stamped (tone on tone) just on the top left & bottom right corners then layered on the Whisper White card, happy mothers day is from "Occasional Greetings" inked with More Mustard.


Oh I just love this colour combo; Kraft, Baja Breeze & Bravo Burgundy. The sentiment & tree are inked with Chocolate Chip & the Kraft card front has been spritzed with a Bravo Burgandy Marker. Once the image is stamped & the Trio Flowers are added (popped up with Dimensionals), mount it onto the Baja Breeze piece & then adhere the Bravo Burgandy piece behind that. Now you can punch a hole through all 3 layers (where you can see in this pic the knot of the ribbon) this is so you can thread the Baja Breeze striped ribbon, tie it around the layers & into a knot, now that can be added onto the card front with Dimensional.

Hmmm Cameo Coral anyone! Well I think so, it co-ordinates with Raspberry Tart DSP (the flower) just 5 scallop circles with a brad inserted to keep it together then scrunched up. The branch is stamped (tone on tone) in the top left & bottom right corners of the card front. The flower Branch image is inked & then mounted in/onto Kiwi Kiss with a little Rose Red Scalloped piece behind that as well, to tie in the Raspberry Tart DSP used for the Flower. The Sentiment is from "Whimsical Words" SAB.
Blog Giveaway!
I guess it's called "Blog Candy"? I've always wanted to have one of those, lol.
All of the 9 SAS cards are great make-n-takes, the layouts were considered & measurements made to have very little if any off cuts, so great for mass production. I have this very SAS class on again tomorrow & was expecting 6 attendees, 1 has just cancelled leaving me with an extra class kit (CS cut & scored & ingredients list with all measurements), so I just thought why not have it up for grabs until the 28th March, I've already the winning number written down for the person who leaves me a comment in sequence to that number. Make sense? To explain a bit better:  Just say that my number is 7, then the 7th person to leave me a comment on this post will win.

(ps, I doubt you've picked 31 as the winner, but as I am a demo, even if you pick 1, please pass the prize to someone else).
Cheers,
