More fun with the Striped Scallop Thinlet

Continuing my quest to use the Striped Scallop Thinlet!  This one sits on a base created with the I Love Lace stamp and emboss resist technique.  The butterfly is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set with matching framelet.  I offset two layers of Striped Scallops.

After all the excitement of the release of the bonus Saleabration products, I've gone back to my self-imposed challenge of using the Striped Scallop Thinlet Die in as many ways as I can!

New Saleabration Products

Thanks for joining us on this Crazy Crafters Blog Hop.  We hope you'll pick up some useful tips and  inspiration.

What is Saleabration? For a short time only, it's an opportunity to get a special product FREE with every $90 spent!

Possibly one of the most important tips that we can share with you this month is the reminder that Saleabration is sadly coming to and end so if you like the Saleabration items - don't delay as they won't be available after 31st March.

Sheer perfection vellum, teamed with Butterfly Thinlet Die
Something I really like about the four bonus Saleabration items is that they go together really well. The Sheer Perfection Vellum Stack is a perfect match with the Nature's Perfection stamp set but also works very well with the For Being You stamp set - as well as many other stamp sets in the Stampin' Up! collection!  The In-Colour Accessory Pack is also very versatile.

I've been enjoying these new products a lot - as you'll have noticed, since my last two Posts also featured these products!  I really love that vellum!

This gate fold card has panels of Sheer Perfection vellum on the outside, coloured with Classic Inks and a Blender Pen.  The closure features the Butterfly thinlet die.  A sprinkling of Rhinestone Basic Jewels & Itty Bitty Accents punch cuts add dimension.

The inside of the card has a panel I stamped with the Nature's Perfection stamp set, using the masking technique - also coloured with Classic Inks and a blender pen.

Unfortunately, I seem to be making a lot of Sympathy cards at the moment.  The next one is an easel card using Sheer Perfection vellum and flowers I made with the Flower Shop stamp set and Pansy punch.

Then, I coloured in one piece of the vellum using the Stampin' Write Markers, and made two really quick cards with it.
One card has a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments punched out with the Word Window Punch and layered using the Modern Label Punch.  The other is embellished with dimensional flowers.

The final card I made is definitely not my favourite!  I think I had a bit of a reaction to making so many sympathy cards that it's rather too blingy!  I used a mix of Stampin' Up! Rhinestone Jewels and some "other" rhinestones I had in my craft room that were different shapes and colours. I found this really interesting because putting them together really highlighted the superior quality and shine of the Stampin' Up! rhinestones!  I stamped the butterflies from the Nature's Perfection stamp set onto Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and coloured them in with a blender pen.

On this card (I think I threw everything at it!) is the Bow Builder Punch, Finishing Touches Edgelets, Pool Party ribbon, Sheer Perfection Vellum and For Being You stamp set.

Nature's Perfection am so happy to be able to support the We Stamp for Lara (WSFL) fundraiser - another reminder of how wonderful is the stamping community.  If you would like more information about this fundraising event (one tutorial per day for a month), or would like to help raise funds for the purchase of a mobility vehicle to help this little girl - please click on the image.

Sale-a-Bration 2015
This is the card I made for this week's WSFL colour challenge of Basic Grey, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Calypso Coral.  I used the brand new Sale-a-bration freebies - Sheer Perfection Vellum and Nature's Perfection stamp set. 
I stamped onto a piece of vellum and then "coloured" the flower using the Raised Vellum technique shown in Deb Valder's tutorial.

The vellum and stamp set are some of the Sale-a-Bration items available free with purchases of $90 but time is running out - all the Sale-a-Bration items will go forever after 31st March.
