Home to Roost Friendship Card

Today’s friend card highlights the Home to Roost stamp set and Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (black gingham).   Both are level 1 Sale-A-Bration gifts and can be earned FREE with a qualifying order (see below).  With just a few strokes of color from my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends, the rooster from Home to Roost stamp set comes to life.  No wonder this stamp set has become “the darling” of the Sale-A-Bration promotion.

  1. I love the selective coloring – and the beautiful texture from this embossing folder. Great pairing! ♥

    • I love the hexagon folder embossing for creating a cover over the bumps and embellishments of handcrafted cards. Reminds me of bubble wrap but in coordinating colors!

  2. Ooooh, simplicity, means beautiful, love it MsMary ♥️
    Hugs Frenchie ♥️

  3. The WOW factor is turned up quite a bit. I LOVE the colors, especially the Calypso Coral layer. I couldn’t see the embossing in the first photo and I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. Thank goodness you did a close up because the hexagon is awesome! TFS.
