A Bloomin' Marvellous Monday

Welcome to a Bloomin' Marvellous Monday post. I've had a lovely crafty day today with some crafty friends of mine. We celebrated half term with a crafty Stampin' Up! party.

To highlight the fantastic freebie benefits of Sale-A-Bration I decided to use the freebie Bloomin' Marvellous stamp set as the focus for our cardmaking project. We made the card above which is inspired by
this beautiful card made by Vicky. I love this technique of using a square punch to create a window behind which to stamp the images. We used a 4inch by 1.5inch strip of paper from the Birds of a Feather DSP to stamp the flower and leaf image on to. This was then set behind the Whisper White layer with the window. We then punched two butterflies (using both beautiful butterfly punches) to layer and finish the card.

And while we are talking about Bloomin' Marvellous. Here is another card I taught during our January card class which uses this stamp set as its focus. I love this colour combo of Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive and Perfect Plum.

Just a reminder that I am teaching a new class this week in Ryde at the Sew N So Craft Centre (first class Thursday February 21st 1-3pm, £8.50). Spaces are limited so get in touch with the shop to book your space. I am so excited about beginning technique classes in a new venue and hope to see you there very soon.
Here is a little sneak peak of what we will be making:

Happy Crafting & please get in touch to find out more about any of the products I have used or place your Sale-A-Bration order.
