Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday

I can't believe we are more than half way through Sale-A-Bration.  I am always excited when my Stampin' Up! order arrives but it's even more exciting when there are Sale-A-Bration products in there as well.  When you see the Sale-A-Bration products in a brochure or online it isn't the same as having them in your hands and having fun seeing what you can create with them.  Stampin' Up! now have 15 Sale-A-Bration products to choose from.

Today I would like to share with you the card I made using the Hey Chick stamp set.  When I first saw this stamp set in the brochure I didn't like it but when I saw some of the projects that had been created with it I chose this stamp set as my free gift when I placed my next order. The Hey Chick stamp set is available in Wood Mount or Clear Mount, the links are at the bottom of this post.

The layout for today's card came from a sketch challenge that was on a Stampin' Up! forum run by Amanda Charlesworth.  As soon as I saw the sketch I knew it was perfect to use with the Hey Chick stamp set.

Tasty Trucks Melon Mambo Card

Last Sunday I shared my cute little Tasty Trucks card that I made as part of my Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday series (click here if you would like to see the card). 

As soon as I had finished the card I had the idea to make another background using the pancakes, cupcake and ice cream stamps that are in the Tasty Trucks stamp set.

The new card I have made would be suitable for an adult or a child.

Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday

Thank you for joining me today for my Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday series.  The card I would like to share with you today was made using the Tasty Trucks stamp set  and the Any Occasion stamp set.  The little truck in the Tasty Trucks stamp set is so cute, I couldn't wait to get in my craftroom and start playing.   


The original cards I made for today's blog were made with DSP that was on the Clearance Rack but unfortunately that has now sold out.  When you want to recreate a project you have seen and you find it has been made with items that are no longer available I know how frustrating it can be.  I will include photos of the first cards I made at the bottom of this post because they could be recreated using a different DSP/background.

Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge February Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us today for the Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge.  This months sketch was designed by Sam Charlton and as soon as I saw it I loved it.  To see the other projects made for todays blog hop please click on the 'Next' or 'Previous' buttons at the bottom of this post.

I was going to use the Special Reason stamp set for this sketch but when I was looking through my stamps I was drawn to the Country Livin' stamp set, the images in this stamp set are great for both male and female cards.

Yummy in my Tummy Showcase

I have had so much fun with the ever so cute Yummy In My Tummy stamp set from Stampin' Up! I have 3 blog posts showcasing this stamp set.  I have 2 cards and a 3D project I made with these fun stamps.

As soon as I saw this stamp set in the Spring/Summer catalogue I fell in love with it so much that I ordered it as soon as I was able to.  One of the benefits of being a demonstrator is that we get to pre-order products from the catalogue about a month before it goes 'live '.

The card I would like to share with you today is my Ferrero Rocher Monster card which came together quite quickly.

Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday

Thank you for joining me today for my new series Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday.  I had planned to start this series at the beginning of January but I haven't been able to do much crafting due to ongoing health problems.

Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st and including today there are only 8 Sundays left so every Sunday for the next 8 weeks (health permitting) I would like to show you some simple yet stylish projects you can create with some of the Sale-A-Bration freebies. 

If you are new to Sale-A-Bration for every £45 you spend on Stampin' Up! products (before shipping) you get to choose a free gift from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

Today I would like to show you the card I created using the Avant Garden Stamp Set.
