Sweet Summer Cards!

Hello all!

Today I have some cards to show you that I made using the sweet summer set from the sale-a-bration catalogue. This set comes free when you spend £45 or more on Stampin Up products (but only until the 28th feb).

I made these cards at the tuesday night club that I attend with some of my other crafty friends. I just love these colours, so summery.

I love these gatefold cards that open up to show your hidden mesage, so easy to do but gives that extra wow factor! This white organza ribbon is stunning as well and finishes this card off perfectly.

I could go on and on making these cards. These were so quick and easy to do and can be easily adapted for any occasion with just a change of sentiment.


CS: SU In Colours, Whisper White

Paper: SU Pattern Designer series

Sentiment: SU Sale-a-bration set 'So happy for You'

Stamps: SU 'Sweet Summer'

Tools: SU oval punch, SU stamp-a-ma-jig

Misc: SU In colour markers and White Organza Ribbon

If you like the look of these cards and would like to create them yourself then I have put together below a suggested list of items that you will need to create these cards (plus lots more besides!).

1 Pack of A4 In Colour card - £6.25
1 pack of In Colour Patterns Designer Paper Patterns
stack (40 sheets of 12x12) - £15.50
1 reel of white oragnza ribbon - £5.25
1 pack of Whisper White card (40 sheets) - £7.50
1 pack of 5 In Colour Marker pens - £11.75

This comes to a grand total of £46.75 (excluding p&p) and then you can choose the Sweet Summer Stamp set free, but you'll have to hurry, there's only 5 days of sale-a-bration left for you take advantage of this fab offer!

The only other things you will need, aside from whats on the list above, are some sentiment stamps, a black or grey ink pad and some adhesive of your choice. These are items that are staples in any crafters cupboard!!

Well I hope you've enjoyed looking at the cards I've shown you today. I have definately enjoyed making them and can't wait to experiment further with this set. Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to email me if you would like to place an order and take advantage of this limited offer from Stampin Up!
