Passionettes SAB 2012 Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to a Mini hop showcasing the choice of free items from this year’s Sale a Bration campaign. You probably arrived here from the lovely Tara how lovely are her projects? I was struck by the love hot air balloon, how very clever!!!!.

Ok I mentioned yesterday that I love the choice of free items you can earn with a purchase of £45 or more and I really do, I got them all simply because I cannot bear not to have them all and started work after a little play I decided Elementary Elegance was my favourite.

I had some very special Thank You’s to send out to some sweet friends last week and this is what I did.


The cards are quite simple but I just love them.

All supplies Stampin'Up! unless otherwise stated

PAPER: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very vanilla, Spice Cake dsp

INK: Soft Suede, Peach Parfait

STAMPS: Elementary Elegance (FREE with purchase), Petite Pairs

TOOLS: Curly Label punch, spritzing tool,

ACCESSORIES: Antique brads, victoria lace, rhinestones, Peach parfait stitched poly ribbon

I used a combo dictated by the gorgeous Spice Cake designer paper of Pool party, Peach Parfait and Soft Suede.

The ornate frame was stamped onto Soft suede card with soft suede ink and the middle was punched out using the matching Curly Label Punch

The sentiment from Petite Pairs was stamped in peach parfait onto very vanilla and the crown from the Elementary Elegance set was stamped in soft suede.

Peach Parfait twill ribbon was ruched along side a strip of designer paper which was cut into a fish tail shape, an antique brad held a piece of lace on the side and provided more detail and the whole card got a healthy helping of spritzing done with the spritzing tool and a marker.

I also sent a little gift with the cards. Some sparkles or some paper flowers and decorated the tops of the packaging to match.

PAPER: Soft Suede, very Vanilla, spice Cake dsp

INK: Peach parfait, Soft Suede, Pool Party

STAMPS: Elementary Elegance (FREE with purchase) and  You’re a Gem

TOOLS: Curly Labe Punch, spritzing tool

ACCESSORIES: Pool Party Ruffled ribbon, rhinestones,

I folded over some card and matching designer paper to cover the tops of the packaging and this time I stamped the frame in Peach Parfait and added the sentiment on a punched layer on the top of the frame. I found the perfect sentiment in the cute set called You’re a gem, and a  little ruffled ribbon  in pool party softened the whole look.
