Something old, something new, something for FREE and a handy hint too!

Phew - that was a long title, but perfect for this posting.

Something Old
Like many Demonstrators, we have SO many stamps that we never get around to using them all, so I am making an effort to use those lesser seen stamps in my collection. Here is my first card which features the 'Create a Cupcake' stamp set and matching punch. There was no way I would have cut out that little cherry without it. I used a little section of one of our doilies to look like a doily under the cake. The little sweet flowers are from the same set, and I love the sentiment too!

Something New
I have a new set of cards to share with you in this card.... our Watercolour Cards. This is 1 of 5 designs that you get in the pack. It is fab for stamping onto, and makes a really quick effective card. I am already planning a class around this card pack - so watch out in February. I used the Serene Silhouettes stamp here in Staz-On Black ink.

Something for FREE
Yes - the background paper here is one in a set of 12 papers you can get for FREE in February and March as part of our Sale-A-Bration event. It's fab and I have made the pansies to match.

And a handy hint too.
OK, so I had these three cards to send out together, but no A5 envelope to send them in. I hunted out some spare cardboard (from the backing of one of our embellishment kits) and used my envelope punch board to make a 5x7 envelope. I just added a decorative stamp and it's all ready to send, made from thick card, so perfect to protect my cards for FREE!
