My order went in today and I can’t wait to get the rest of the Sale-A-Bration sets–entirely FREE. I have seen so many amazing Sale-A-Bration card examples in the Splitcoast Gallery. I also went a tad wild on Stampin’ Up! accessories and some great pre-ordered stamps and designer paper from the Occasions mini catalog (available March 1).
This card went together so quickly. I layered Ginger Blossoms Designer Paper on Ruby Red and a Very Vanilla card base. The banner is Ruby Red with a little paper piercing . . . I’m still toying with adding some faux stitching with my white gel pen. What do you think?
The "Tres Chic" background stamp was inked in River Rock and stamped on Very Vanilla. I then added a Ginger Blossoms mat. The flower was the "So Sweet" stamp from So Many Scallops. I stamped it in Versamark on Ruby Red and heat embossed with clear. Tip: Always thoroughly clean your Powder Pals after using black and before using clear. Hence, the little black flecks. I ordered new clear today. In the mean time, I’m pretending the black lends an earthy feel.
The Scallop Circle Punch works beautifully with this set. The perfect touch on this flower is the added brad . . . created with Ginger Blossoms paper (punched with the 1/2" circle) and the Build-A-Brad Kit. Instant customized pizzazz.
The final touches include a Groovy Guava stitched ribbon stem and leaves, a quick punch of the Round tag punch with a "little sista" flower detail . . . created from the One of a Kind set and the Boho Blossoms Punch (heat embossed with clear on Ruby Red like its "big sista" flower).
