Friendly Hello - Pootlers Team Video Hop

 HI Everyone,

Today I am video hopping with the Pootlers Team and we are showcasing Saleabration products. I've chosen to use one of the Level 2 products which is a stamp set and matching designer series paper and available with a £90 purchase from the catalogues. It's a very bright card using only Granny Apple Green, I wanted to show how it was possible to make a pretty card without having lots of supplies. The only addition was a little bit of Wink of Stella to add a bit of sparkle. I mentioned adding embellishments in the video and forgot to put them one (duh!!) but I have added some Brass Butterflies.

The link to my video is below and from my YouTube channel you can access everyone else's video too, please pop over and give them some support.

Video Tutorial


1 piece of granny apple green card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", 1 piece 4" x 3"

On the long side score the card stock at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Adhere the dsp mat layer to the card front.

Die cut the largest rectangle using granny apple green and the next size down in basic white.

Stamp the image on the basic white rectangle using the granny apple green ink and add in a couple of the little flower flourishes too to fill it out.  I've coloured in the tiny leaves using my Stampin' Blends.  I've added a Wink of Stella to the centre of the flowers and the birds tail and feathers to give it a little sparkle.

I wanted a very small sentiment so I've cheated a bit and pulled in one from the lovely Sentimental Swirls which is the Million Dollar Achievers stamp set designed by our lovely leader, Sam Hammond Donald - I think she will forgive me!

Adhere the white stamped layer to the granny apple green layer and then add to the centre of the card front using dimensionals.

Stamp some leaves on the remaining piece of basic white and add to the inside of the card.

Sprinkle some butterflies and the card is complete. I think it would look equally lovely using the Fresh Freesia, Petal Pink or Pool Party colourways too. I hope that you like it and will give it a try.
