Good afternoon and welcome to my blog. Today I have two cards to share with you that I made using the FREE* products offered during SAB.

*To qualify for free products you need to spend $110 (NZD) worth of product from any of our catalogues.

For the first card I have used the stamp set called See Ya Later.  I have had a lot of fun using my markers on it. Every line is a different colour. I designed this first one to be masculine, so mainly stuck to blues and greens with a touch of red. The embossing folder is also an item you can earn for free called Decorative Dots. I have also used the Banner Punch (which also has a matching stamp set)

For the second card I made this a feminine one. I just love this DSP (designer Series Paper) called Sweet Sorbet.  Again I have used the stamp set called See Ya Later and I have also used my markers, but this time I have also stamped the word Happy on a piece of scrap and stuck it on dimensionals.

Here they are together.

    Love both of these cards Narelle but especially the masculine one…always looking for masculine ideas!

    These are really lovely cards Narelle – I need to make a stack and I think you’ve really nailed it for elegant, simple but sophisticated and perfect male vs female cards.
