Bye, bye, Bliss

Sigh ..... I love Bliss (the Sale-A-Bration stamp set that we have all gone mad for). I just thought I would show you my favourite projects using this gorgeous stamp set that as of tomorrow will be no longer available as Sale-A-Bration will end tonight.

BUT ..... starting tomorrow Stampin' Up! have ANOTHER offer to tempt us. Not free stamps this time, but up to 30% off certain products!! Check the Stampin' Up! website tomorrow for some bargains!!

All items Stampin' Up!
Inspiration for these projects came from Monica Gale's blog My Many Many Passions.

Take care until next time ........

Bad blogger, sorry!!

I have been MIA recently, and for that I apologise! Since January I have been working at my daughter's school and I am really enjoying it!

I have been doing a little bit of craft so will post my projects over the next few days, including the card I made for my husband for Valentine's Day. I also demo'd this card at a meeting of local Stampin' Up Demonstrators.

The base card is a 14cm square of Basic Black CS with an apperture cut out using a Nestability. I cut out 2cm strips of Love Letters DSP and over-lapped them on the back of the apperture to create an iris-folded look. Using the same Nestability die I cut a frame from Riding Hood Red CS and wrapped a piece of Basic Black Taffeta ribbon around it. Attached to the ribbon is a couple of Tiny Tags and the key stamp from Artistic Etchings stamp set.

My husband loved it!
