Sail Away

This was my swop for the ILWS mini catalogue swop round 1,which the lovely Emma H organised - thank you for all your hard work sorting everything out. Thirty SU demos took part in this one, we split into groups of 10 and Emma was inundated with envelopes of loveliness which she had to then sort out ans send back to everyone.  We were to all choose a product from the new mini catalogue and make our swops with it.........my choice was Sail Away, this is one of our a la carte stamps , whic you can purchase singularly, and great value at only £8.95 and oh so perfect for male cards - especially those who don't like football!

I used a 4" x 4" square of whisper white cardstock and stamped in bashful blue with one of our large background stamps called sanded, this is a great stamp for subtle backgrounds and works for all occasions.  I cut a smaller square of whisper white cardstock and edged it with the scallop trim border punch, I stamped my image with soft suede ink which I also used to distress the edges of the smaller matt and used the same ink again to stamp Hello, which is a sentiment from the Basic phrases set.   Button button is a new stamp set in the mini  catalogue and I can think of so many uses for it, and on this card I punched out four 3/4" circles from whisper white and glued them together and then stamped one of the button stamps in bashful blue and punched  it out and added it on top of the white cirlles, i treaded some of our linen thread through it to add dimension. I do hope all the girls liked my swop, the ones I received in return were amazing! thanks everyone.

PLEASE POP BACK SOON- and don't miss looking in on Saturday 9th April, I am a member of Julie Jems team of demonstrators and we have arranged a blog hop for Saturday at 9am - some more amazing crations from the mini catalogue for you to look at! see you then!!
