Last Call for Sale-a-bration 2017!

Well, we knew this day would come, but it is still a wee bit sad. Today is the final day of our best promotion of the year. At midnight tonight Sale-a-bration goes away for another year. Before it does, I have a couple more projects to share with you that feature Sale-a-bration freebies you can still order today...

This is yet another card I made using the Make a Medallion stamp set. I told you I couldn't get enough of it! Here I used colours that speak to my soul...lots of bright shades. My palette included Cucumber Crush, Bermuda Bay and Melon still my heart. The background panel is embossed using the Lovely Lace works beautifully with this stamp set. The medallion and glimmer paper mat are both die-cut using the Layering Circles framelits. I used the Classic Label punch to punch out the sentiment and popped it up with a trimmed dimensional.

I layered two different ribbons for added texture...Cucumber Crush 5/8" striped ribbon and Melon Mambo 1/8" stitched ribbon. I also added some rhinestones that I coloured with an alcohol marker for more bling.

On the inside I created a border using some of the elements from the Make a Medallion set...I love the way it turned out. So simple.

My second project is one I am featuring in my Watercolour 101 class next month. It features the Inside the Lines DSP used with the spotlighting technique. I used my watercolour pencils and blender pen to colour the flowers. The dragonflies are die-cut using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.

The sentiment is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set and is the only stamping on this card!

On the inside I added a Whisper White panel on which I stamped another of the sentiments from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. I love the mixed fonts in these sentiments.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend...don't forget to get your final Sale-a-bration order in before midnight tonight.

So Much Sale-a-bration Awesomeness...So Little Time Left

I can't believe Sale-a-bration is almost over! Tomorrow at midnight it all goes away :( I still have so many fabulous projects to share that showcase Sale-a-bration products, so today  I'm sharing two...hope you don't mind. Both feature the Delicate Details stamp set, which is one that I will be keeping and using long after Sale-a-bration is over. Check them out...

This first one was inspired by several I have seen on Pinterest. It not only uses the Delicate Details set, but also the So Very Much set as well...even more Sale-a-bration awesomeness! My colour scheme here was Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach.
Now let me stop for a brief Public Service Announcement about the fact that Watermelon Wonder is a retiring In-Colour and all associated products will disappear very soon. Once the retiring product list posts on April 10th all In-Colour products will be availalbe only while supplies last, so order your reinkers and extra card stock NOW. Don't wait. (BONUS: You'll get Sale-a-bration freebies on your order!)
Ok...back to the project...I used the Classic Label punch to punch out the "So very much", popped it up with dimensionals and added a little Peekaboo Peach enamel heart.

Now for my second project...

This is one I L-O-V-E! I started by heat embossing the lace images from the Delicate Details set in white and then sponged on Pool Party, Island Indio and Night of Navy inks to create the ombre effect. I so love this background! The sentiment stamp is from the Everyday Tags stamp set in the Occasions Cataloge (which is still live until MAY 31st). I stamped it in Night of Navy ink, die cut it using the Layering Circles Framelits and layered it on an Island Indigo scalloped circle. I added a little Pool Party paper bow from the Cupcakes and Carousels embellishment kit and a little Metal-rimmed Pearl.

If you have picked up either of these Sale-a-bration stamp sets yet, you'd better hurry! You don't want to miss out on them...they're fabulous!
