Sale-A-Bration sneak peek #7

Hello!
Are you all ready for Christmas? If not, I hope it's not too much stress for you :/
I am pretty much all done now so I am going to relax, go to church, take Keiran to see Santa and visit family...happy days!

Before I go, I'm going to show you another Sale-A-Bration card, using the wonderful, vibrant colours.

This really is a lovely stamp set of 3 sentiments and 3 images...so versatile! 
To get the graduated colour on the hummingbird I first coloured the whole stamp in Pool Party, the the tips of the beak, wings and tail in Island Indigo, then gently blended the two colours...all this was done with Stampin' Write markers before stamping. I did this twice, then cut one of them out and attached it over the first image to give the illusion over hovering.

Challenges

Supplies used:
Card - Whisper White, Island Indigo
Stampin' Write Markers - Island Indigo, Pool Party
Papers - Sycamore Street
Dies - Labels
Stamps - Bloomin' Marvellous

If you would like me to order any Stampin' Up! products for delivery right to your door, (and get your freebies) please don't hesitate to contact me on 07915 698577 or email me at lizyshouseofcards@mail.com

Sale-A-Bration sneak peek #4 & Less Is More

Good morning you lovely LIMettes! 
All ready for Christmas? 
I thought I was, but still got some bits to finish, including the annual 'Keiran calendar'...oh well looks like I'm going to be busy Christmas Eve!

So this morning over at Less Is More, Chrissie and Jen have set us the challenge of 

DRINKS

Now other than having had a few of them with the PTA last night, I don't really have much in the way of crafty stuff to use for that theme. Then I wondered if a colour would do?
So this is my drink related card...
I have used another stamp from the Feeling Sentimental stamp set from Sale-A-Bration, and stamped it in Early Espresso! Hope I can get away with that ladies! 
I also matted it onto Early Espresso card and used Early Espresso baker's twine.

Close up...
I've used a lot of Early Espresso here...well it's early and I need an Espresso before work to wake me up after last night!

Bye for now!

Supplies used:
Card - Very Vanilla, Early Espresso
Stamp - Feeling Sentimental
Baker's Twine - Early Espresso
Embellishments - Antique Brads

Isn't it fab?? It's one of a set called Feeling Sentimental...there are 4 stamps in this set. I stamped it on Crumb Cake using Cherry Cobbler.

Embellishments - Mini Brads
Other - Uni-ball gel pen, paper piercing tool

Champagne & Snowflakes

Well hello and welcome to my new blog! 
Have you entered my blog candy? Oooh lovely...I wonder if you will be my winner?!

As promised, here is my first project, and I have gone for a very simple card today...one that I may make in bulk for next Christmas!
Very simply, this is a Very Vanilla card blank embossed with Northern Flurry embossing folder and I highlighted the snowflakes with Champagne Glass Glitter. I finished with 2 score lines at the top as when I embossed it I got a line...well rescued I think! Plus, no need for ribbon making it even quicker to make!

Supplies to make this card:
Card - Very Vanilla
Embossing Folder - Northern Flurry
Glitter - Champagne Glass Glitter
