Pocket Silhouettes & Blog Candy Moment.....

I made another set of cards to show using the Pocket Silhouettes. I decided on Taken with Teal, Regal Rose, So Saffron and Whisper white. The whisper white used on all the projects in the photo is textured Whisper White. If you look closely on one of the items, it has another clue as to the Special Offer in March.......??

Leave a Comment as to What you think the Special Offer is for March and I will pick a Winner on Sunday 1st March at 5pm....

The first card is Taken with Teal as a Base 12.5cm x 12.5cm. It has a layer of Regal Rose and 3 strips of paper. I pricked all around the edges and in between the strips. The paper is Sweet Always. I inked up the Pocket Silhouette using the Regal Rose and Taken with Teal markers and cut it out with a Rectangle nestie. These nesties already have the corner cut away. I layered it onto a Scallop Rectangle Nestie. I added the sentiment on a Ribbon nestie and completed it with some Whisper White ribbon.

For those at Dorset Stampers: This is my card for Val's First Card Challenge - CARD No. 1.




This card base is So Saffron. I added some Textured Whisper white which I used the Scallop Edge Punch on the bottom to do the Scallops.

The centre section is So Saffron Designer paper, Regal Rose cardstock and Ribbon. I stamped the Pocket Silhouettes in So Saffron and Taken with Teal. All 3 layers were cut out using Square Nesties.

For the Sentiment I covered some CHIPBOARD LETTERS in Sweet Always paper.
Remember my box in my Class this week. Well I made a slightly different one, to fit some Chocolates they have at Lidl's. They are sold 12 for £1.25 and VERY VERY TASTY. We get through lots on a Tuesday.
The middle section slides out and holds the chocolates. I didn't do an insert this time as the chocolates fit in there perfectly.

Do you know the box is really heavy! MMM!


Have you Guessed What the Offer is Yet?

I reckon the special offer is to do with the chipboard letters and maybe chipboard in general

Hi Jenny,

Beautiful projects as usual and wonderful colour combo. I am guessing chipboard - hope it's right as I love the stuff.

Sonya said...

Wow those are beautiful cards!! Im guessing chipboard aswell.

Beautiful creation! I think I'm going to also say something to do with chipboard! I was thinking certain stamp sets might be a % off as well! Keeping fingers crossed anyhow!

I wonder if you guys in UK are having a special on markers??? Anyway I just love your creations and hope we get this set in our new cattie.

Sara said...

I hope the special offer is markers - I've been wanting some for ages. Having said that, there's a couple of punches I'd like, so I'd be quite happy with that too!

Helen said...

Jenny ~ I love what you do with Pocket Silhouettes and the chocolates are a bonus !!

I think CHIPBOARD for March ~ You never type in bold capitals so this must be a clue.....

robyn said...

I love the colors. The blue and pink is just beautiful.

Aquarius said...

Pretty cards and the choccy box is great (especially full up). I guess either chipboard letters or perhaps the 'ticket' punch which hasn't been available in this country.

That is just the cutest little box...I love that Silhouettes stamp set!
My guess is % off an Easter stamp set.
Thanks!

Hi Jen
Could the special offer possibly be Chipboard Accents!!! I love the butterflies that you created with them. Would love to see what you would do with the large flowers in the chipbaord.
Hugs Sharon x x x

These are gorgeous! I'm guessing corner punches!

I love the teal in the cards, it is so pretty. I would never have used the teal, but it looks great.
My guess would be chipboard letters.
