ESAD SAB Blog Hop 2013

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog, you should have just come from Keryn Campbell, wow if you started with Chloe Evens then this is your last stop. I hope you have enjoyed what we have designed for you and given you a lot of inspiration.

My first card is one I designed for a demo swap using the stamp set Bloomin’ Marvelous, and coordinating with the DSP and matching ribbon Sycamore Street. Colours I have used are Tangerine Tango, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade and Sahara Sand.


For my next two cards, I got the idea from a very talented lady Tanya Bell, for the first one  I have used the butterfly punch and placed a bright piece of DSP behind it (I just had to use the butterfly one as we have a lot of monarch butterflies hatching at our place at the moment) I have matched it with a sneak peak of a stamp from the up and coming mini starting Feb 1st called Make a Wish. I have cut it out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits and sponged it in Pool Party. As you can see I have also used the Ribbon from SAB behind the sentiment to pop it out a bit more.


For the second card inspired also by Tanya Bell I have used the Heart Punch, perfect for Valentines Day just around the corner. Once again I have used the Sycamore Street DSP behind it, but this time I have used the Ticket Punch and coordinating button for the Sentiment. The stamp set is also a sneak peak from the next mini called That’s the Ticket. I have placed a Large Pearl on top of the button. Colours used were Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry.


For my last sample I have put together a quick card using the Simply Sent Kit, with this pack You can put together 8 very quick and easy cards. You can use the design they have given you or you can change it. I have basically used their design, but I stuck the flowers which are stickers onto a piece of Whisper White so I could shape them. I also used a button for the centre of the flower and used the Rhinestones on the side. These also come with matching envelopes. Which you can see at the top left corner of my picture. Now if the Hello is putting you off these, don’t forget you can put any sentiment onto a new piece of card and stick it over the hello.


Thank you for stopping by if you didn’t start at Chloe Evans then she is your next stop.

    Narelle, everything is beautiful but the first card using the Blooming Marvelous set, has to be my favorite. It reminds me of the flower out of the Vintage Vogue set, which I was super sad to see retire.

    I really like the softer look you have made with your first card, shows how versatile our DSP can be as many others have made it so bright and loud. Thanks for sharing 🙂
