Here are some cards that I received in a card swap that I participated in. The swap was to include Sale-a-bration items. During Sale-a-bration there are special items in the Sale-a-bration Catalog that are FREE with a qualifying purchase. There are 2 purchase levels for earning the SAB (Sale-a-bration) items. The first is $50 and the second is at $100.
Cathy has used the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch to punch out 3 different pieces of the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper. The base is Misty Moonlight with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Petal Pink layered on top of the base. The white layer has been dry embossed with the Tasteful Textures Embossing Folder. The Happy birthday greeting and the Oval punch outs are from the Oval Occasions Bundle. I believe that the pearls are the Pastel Pearls from the Hydrangea Hill Suite
Berry Blessings Stamp set is highlighted on this card. Dawn has used the fill in stamps from the 2-step stamps for the raspberry and raspberry greens without using the outline stamps, which created a gorgeous, soft, water color effect for the background layer and the focal image. The Rich Razzleberry strip pulls the rich razzleberry colored raspberries out of the background image. The bow is made from Linen Thread and the single berry is topped with 1 rhinestone.
Paper dimensions: 2 3/4″ x 4″ white piece that is stamped for the background
3/4″ x 4 3/4″ Rich Razzleberry
3 1/2″ x 1 3/4″ white for main image and greeting
Jill decided to showcase the pretty Field & Flower Designer Series Paper which is also a Sale-a-bration item as well as a greeting from the Approaching Perfection Sale-a-bration stamp set. I love the matting on this card, with the 3 layers of white. The top white layer is die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the little dragonflies are punched from the Dragonfly Punch with coordinates with the Dragonfly Wishes stamp set. The head of each dragonfly is topped with a tiny pearl and the whole layer is popped up with dimensionals.
Layer Dimensions: DSP 4 3/4 x 3 1/2″
White 5″ x 3 3/4″
Shaded Spruce 5 1/4″ x 4″
Sal-a-bration is half over already! Time sure does fly. Be sure to get your order in soon to ensure you get the Free SAB item you are wishing for.
