Only 8 more days for Sale-a-bration!

The Sale-a-bration Feeling Sentimental stamp set is perfect for the note cards and envelopes pack!  The rich Lucky Limeade color in the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper used on the envelope flap is just right for stamping the vintage bicycle on the front of the note card.

feeling sentimental note cards Here’s the set of three that I made. I chose monochromatic papers to cover the flaps of the matching envelopes for a on-fuss look.  I love the simplistic sophistication of a monochromatic color scheme.  And no special supplies needed, just paper, ink and scissors!

Bundle a set of 6 of these cards and envelopes together with a ribbon bow and you have a wonderful gift for a teacher or a friend’s birthday.  I used Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango and Pool Party for this set with papers from the designer series paper packs SAB Sycamore Street,  International Bazaar, and Comfort Café.

I kept these super simple, but you could definitely add ribbon, buttons or rhinestones.

Bloomin’ Marvelous Color Chalk Butterflies

bloomin' marvelous chalkboard butterfly card 2

This little butterfly number features two exclusive Sale-a-bration products the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set & Vine Street Embossing Folder.  The card base is made with Crumb Cake cardstock, embossed with the Vine Street Embossing Folder and splattered with a little Melon Mambo reinker.

To create the butterfly panel, I started with Basic Black cardstock and rubbed it lightly with the Whisper White Craft Pad.  After heat setting the craft ink, I prepared the panel with the Embossing Buddy and then stamped a couple of butterflies with VersaMark.

I heat embossed the first set of butterfles with the Melon Mambo embossing powder, then stamped a couple of more butterflies, heat embossed that set with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.  And then finally stamped a couple of more butterflies and heat embossed with the Pool Party embossing powder

One butterfly was stamped on a scrap of basic black, heat embossed, punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch and blinged up with a little rhinestone.

If you look closely, you’ll see that I scored a couple of lines on the top and bottom edges of the butterfly panel with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  I also ran the edges across the versamark pad and heat embossed it with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.
