Today it’s the turn of the Sale-a-bration 2012 set Elementary Elegance. This is a perfect set for card-makers and scrap-bookers alike, the main image makes a great journaling box, which we will be using at my scrap-booking class tomorrow. To find out more about my classes held in Locks Heath, Hampshire please click here.
So onto today’s cards using Elementary Elegance, I have stuck with a really classical colour combination for this first card, it uses Pool Party, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. I’m not sure quite how well the spots show up but the spots have been sponged with both Soft Suede ink and Champagne Mist shimmer paint, it’s really sparkly in real life! The centre of the main image fits perfectly with the curly label punch leaving the elegant border around the edge. I love the way Stampin’ Up! co-ordinates stamp sets with punches it makes things look so finished.
The second card is one I will be demonstrating over the next few weeks at my workshops in lots of different colours and styles. It uses the spritzer alongside the Elementary Elegance stamp set and really makes a feature of the seam binding ribbon.
I hope you like the cards today, I shall be back tomorrow with the final Sale-a-bration 2012 set Sprinkled Expressions, it will be after my classes though!
A quick update on the building works, we have windows, doors, a roof and the plasterers are working hard right now. The floor should be in early next week followed by the heating and the final electrics, so next week will be a bit noisy and disruptive but then it should be finished. After a few weeks of drying out we will then be able to move into our lounge and then the real fun begins……..our old lounge will be ripped apart and turned into a dining room and my craft room, Hurrah! I will put up some more pictures early next week.
I hope you enjoyed today’s Elementary Elegance cards, see you tomorrow.
Happy Stampin’ with Elementary Elegance
