‘ello, ‘ello…

Hello Fellow Stampers,

I sat myself down this morning to &amp & come up with a male card, but looking at it, you could use it for either male or female.  Combined with the great little stamp set “Hello Again” from Stampin’ Up’s current Mini-Catalogue & a FREE Stamp Set “Whimiscal Words”  from Stampin’ Up’s Sale-a-Bration catalogue, this makes for a great card!
I’ve really gone out of my comfort zone here, but check it out for yourselves –
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Hello Again, Whimiscal Words
SU Write Markers – Only Orange,Garden Green, Basic Black
Card Stock – Very Vanilla, Going Gray, Garden Green, Night of Navy
DSP – Kiwi Kiss Patterns
Accessories – Anywhere Glue, Crystal Effects
Non-SU – Buttons

To use the different colours for the flower, I’ve gone with Stampin’ Up’s Write Markers.  These are great for when you want to individually colour your image.
To bring the whole card together, I’ve opted for a coloured button. 
Only because I couldn’t find my Linen Thread, I’ve cut a very fine piece of Very Vanilla card stock & threaded it threw the button. 
To adhere the button to the middle of the flower & to hold the thin strip of Very Vanilla card stock in place I’ve used SU’s Crystal Effects.
For the greeting, I’ve used SU Black Marker to colour the word “Wish”.  See the RHS to see how to earn your own FREE set!
If you have any queries on how to make this card or any supplies I’ve used, please email me as I am only to happy to answer them for you.

Happy Weekened Stampers,

Reading & studying my bedtime book – Stampin’ Up!’s Idea Book & Catalogue, I hit across a small box using Level 2 Hotess Set.  Insead of making one of the many many Stampin’ Up! patterns available to us Demos, I decided to make a card, using the same set. 
Now is the time to earn FREE Hotess Sets, as Sale-a-Bration is zooming ahead & lots of my customers have been earning them selves FREE stamps from the Sale-a-Bration Book.  Why not have a glance through it -click on the SAB Catalogue which located on the right hand side of blog!

Hello Again….

Hello Again….

Here goes…

I cut around the butterfly, including cutting off it’s anntenna and adhered body to card uing “Crystal Effects”.  I then used the “Stampin’ Write Markers”, to draw antennas on again. 
Saves heaps of time trying to cut around those tricky little things! 
This Stamp Set “Hello Again” even comes with a matching Whell – “Retro Remix“. 
 I am going to use both the stamp set & wheel for our next Scrapbook meting
These run on Friday Nights from 7.30 – 10.30 on the last Friday of the Month.
if you would like to attend, please me for the details!
