Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday - Dimensional Flowers and Monkeying Around cards

Firstly I would like to apologise for not sending out a blog post last Sunday.  I have been so busy trying to organise/set-up a monthly workshop in my area as well as trying to find time to make Birthday cards for my Son and my Mother-in-Law as well as make her Mothers Day Card and present.

Today is my final Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday post, there are only 5 days of Sale-A-Bration left.  I have loved the amazing selection of free gifts Stampin' Up! have given us this year and it will be strange not adding a free gift when I place my next order.  Yes I will definitely miss Sale-A-Bration.

Today I have 2 Sale-A-Bration items that I would like to show you.  The Inside the Lines DSP has become one of my favourites, you can use either watercolour pencils or alcohol markers to colour the images.  There are 3 sheets of each of the 4 designs, each sheet is 12"x12".

I decided to use my alcohol markers to colour in some of the flowers on my card because I have used the watercolour pencils for a lot of my recent projects.

Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday

Thank you for joining me for todays Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday.  Today I am focusing on the 6" x 6" Glimmer Paper Assortment pack.  The pack has 4 sheets of each of the 3 colours - Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum and the sparkle on them is amazing. 

The Glimmer Paper has been one of the most popular free Sale-A-Bration products
and there are only 19 days until the end of Sale-A-Bration.  As we are nearing the end of the Sale-A-Bration event product availability is whilst supplies last.

I have spent the last couple of days playing with the Glimmer Paper Assortment pack and there is glitter EVERYWHERE!!  The worktops, the Big Shot and I look like we have been showered with fairy dust and how did I end up with glitter in my bra?  When todays project was finished it was definitely worth the amount of cleaning up I need to do tomorrow.

I really love the Birthday card and box I made using the Bermuda Bay glimmer paper.  This is one of those projects I don't want to give away, I want to keep it for myself.  

The lovely UPS man had just delivered my box of Stampin' Up! goodies that had Glimmer Paper and the Window Shopping Bundle as well as a few other goodies.  I couldn't wait to play with the glimmer paper and the hexagonal box die, I was like a child at Christmas.

Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday

Thank you for joining me today for my 5th Sale-A-Bration Simple Sunday project.  There are 26 days left to get free Sale-A-Bration products so if there are Stampin' Up! products you have been waiting to order now is the time to place that order and get free products too. You can choose a free Sale-A-Bration product for every £45 you spend (before shipping).  Sale-A-Bration items are only available whilst supplies last.

I found it quite challenging to come up with ideas for using the Carried Away Designer Series Paper without having a hot air balloon stamp or die.  I love the Lift Me Up stamp set and the Up & Away Thinlits dies, they are on my Wish List but every time I go to order them I find something else.  Does this happen to you too?  When I order them I'm going to get the Lift Me Up bundle because you save 10% and who doesn't like to save money?

The 1st project I made with the Carried Away DSP was a fish themed card that I made for my Nieces 21st Birthday.  Before I posted the card I photographed it, added the watermark and then realised the stamp set I used had retired.  I have added the photos at the bottom of this post because you don't really need the stamp set to make the card you could just use the Festive Flower Builder Punch.

I love making 3D projects and the '2 4 6 8' box is really quick and simple to make but what could I add to the front of it?  I Googled 'unusual shaped hot air balloons' and one of the pictures gave me the idea to use the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies.  These dies make beautiful Christmas Ornaments but it's nice to be able to use them for non-Christmas projects too.
