I hope you have all had a very lovely, relaxing, safe Easter. My husband and I have spent a blissful four days lazing around the house relaxing and doing as little as possible…lol
This is partly due to us both still trying to get over our chest infections, my husband having an injured knee and us taking advantage of the four-day weekend to spend some time at home.
I did do some crafting over the Easter break, although admittedly not as much as I would’ve liked.
A couple of weekends ago I finally felt well enough to make my March ESAD Birthday Fairy Challenge cards. This was of course before I fell ill with this chest infection. It seems this year I have gone from one illness/injury to another. I am hoping that is the last of it for quite a while. It really does put a dent into my crafting time 🙂
For the month of March I decided to go with a card that is currently on trend and you will most likely see all over the internet, especially Pinterest. You really don’t have to look to hard to find this type of card out in cyber space.
I’m not exactly sure of the “official” name of this card but I have seen it called the Scalloped Tag Punch card. It is a really simple card format and is great if you are making cards on mass, which I am doing, and of course it is made using the new Scalloped Tag Punch from Stampin’ Up!
As I have done in past ESAD Birthday Fairy List Challenge months I have stuck with similar components on all cards but just mixed them up a bit.
The similar components on all these cards is the card style, Scalloped Tag Punch and the designer series paper that I used. Stampin’ Up! have just completed their annual big sale event of the year, SALE-A-BRATION. It’s a fantastic time to not only purchase Stampin’ Up! products and receive exclusive free gifts but also the best time of year (in my humble opinion) to join Stampin’ Up!.
I joined Stampin’ Up! during last year’s SALE-A-BRATION event and received lots of wonderful discounts and free gifts.
I decided to use one of the many, many free packets of Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper I received during this year’s SALE-A-BRATION as my feature.
This card has a Basic Black card base with mats of Summer Starfruit on both the front and inside of the card, and a mat of the Sweet Sorbet DSP. The flower is punched out using the Pansy Punch and the 7/8″ Scalloped Circle Punch. The Little Leaves Sizzlit was used to punch out the Pistachio Pudding leaves and the Summer Starfruit Bakers Twine (also free through SALE-A-BRATION) was used to tie the card closed.
If you look closely enough you will see a Candy Dots Brad Base with a Black Candy Dot on top.
All of these products (except those received during the SALE-A-BRATION period) are available for purchase over at my business blog at http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/tina-janejohnson/.
