Bringing you Sunshine & Rainbows

Don’t we all just love free crafting stash? Today I’m back again, participating in another Blog Hop around the Globe with our Inspire, Create, & Share (I.C.S.) monthly Blog Hop Team. Our theme today is ‘Time To Sale-A-Brate’, featuring our wonderful Sale-A-Bration products.

If you have just joined me from Charmane’s Blog or as one of my followers, a big warm English welcome to you. Sale-A-Bration is one of my favourite times of the year, earning fabulous exclusive FREE products with my purchases. My favourite at the moment is the beautifully bright Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Papers and it could be yours for FREE with a qualifying purchase with your Demonstrator.

I loved creating these cards and with FREE Designer Series Papers, I know I will be making lots more. With 12 different 6″x6″ designs and 12 further different designs on the reverse, there are lots of combinations to choose from. You will find one side the design is bright and the other is often more muted colours.

Products used for my Happy Birthday cards

My cards use Granny Apple Green with Misty Moonlight card second card Mango Medley with Misty Moonlight card, for the base and first layer. The FREE Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Papers were used for the 2nd mat layer and then to cut the parcel shapes. Parcels were then matted onto card layers cut 3mm or 1/8″ larger, to leave a narrow border.

I overlapped my finished parcels slightly and adhered together with Tear & Tape Adhesive #154031. My parcels were tied together using the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack #153620.

For my sentiments, I chose to use the Birthday Chick Dies #158200 which worked perfectly as a solid bold sentiment against the bright Designer Series Papers.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects today. I’ve added the link to my YouTube video below, sharing my FREE Tutorial and measurements.
