I promised you another monochrome card and here it is. Like Saturday’s card, this too features a stamp set from the Sale-a-bration brochure, where everything is free. This time it has a die cut word with it which is also free!
When I say free, I don’t mean completely free of course! For every €60/£45 you spend in either the annual or spring/summer catalogue you can choose something free from the sale-a-bration brochure. This year Stampin’ Up! have changed things slightly and there are a couple of things that you need to spend €120/£90 to earn, and the dies are one of them.
Here I simply used the flower stamp to make a background, then used a couple of the words and teamed them up with the die cut Amazing word.
I sat it on a black mat and a Whisper White card base. Simple but effective I think. These flowers would look stunning coloured in too.
So there you are, just a few supplies to make a lovely card.

See you soon with some masking!
It’s time for another card for the Daring Cardmakers – this week’s challenge was to make a card using some masking.
Here’s what I came up with:
I’ve used the flower from the Amazing You stamp set, and the sentiment is from the co-ordinating Celebrate You dies. Both of these sets are in the Sale-a-bration brochure.
I’ve use two lots of masking here. First I masked of the blank strip in the middle using some post it strip. Then I cut out a mask of the flower and used it to stamp the flowers so that the one in the middle looks like it’s in front of the others.
Then I got out my Blends pens to colour in the flowers. I used both the light and dark shade of each colour.
Because there was a little bleeding of the colour I added two black lines to help make the middle look better. I added some foam to the back of the die cut to add some dimension to it.
I did think about adding some sequins or other bling but decided against it, although I may just add some later!
Don’t forget to go to the Daring Cardmakers blog to see what the others have made.
Tomorrow is the Pootler’s Sale-a-bration blog hop, and it’s a big one! Be sure to come back for that one.
