Stampin’ Up! Sale A Bration– Pretty Petites and Petite Curly Label Punch –2 very different looks and a different use for the Simply Scored Border Plate

So here is Part 3 of my Sale A Bration projects share…. this time I am focusing on the Pretty Petites stamp set and the matching Petite Curly Label Punch. Both the stamp set and the punch are free with a £45 order until 22 March – but you need to spend £90 to get them both for free!! However we have it on good authority that the punch will still  be available after Sale A Bration finishes on 22nd March… phew! It is proving very popular…

Thought I had better share this “moustache” card early in the series…. as we are only a week away from St Valentines Day on 14th Feb….. and how simple can a card be!! The Petite Curly Label Punch is just perfect for the job of creating a little moustache…. just punch the top of the shape at the edge of a piece of cardstock … then move the punch up slightly above your punched shape and punch again… eh voila! Out pops the little moustache…..

And as a second share today , also using the Petite Curly Label punch – but this time with the SAB Pretty Petites Stamp set…..

This card also uses the new Borders Scoring Plate for the Simply Scored Board as available in the brand new Spring/Summer Catalogue … but in a whole new way!!! Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate, The Craft Spa, Amanda Bates

No embossing tool or Bone Folder used here…..I got the dauber out on it!!! Inked up my dauber and just daubed along the cut out shape in the overlay for the  length required for my card, then moved the overlay and repeated for the other colours. I used the second shape down for my card…….  For those of you that haven’t see the plate… there is a plastic overlay that you can place over your piece of card or paper to ( very significantly ) help you line up your scoring tool to score the lines – this is what I laid over my card blank and used…..

So here are a couple of product pictures to help you see what shapes you can “daub”…… or even emboss as originally intended of course…..  A very very popular item at the moment….
