Have you guys been keeping busy? I always think the first quarter of the year is going to provide some down time, but I don't know where is it all going. Including Sale-a-Bration... we are in the last couple of weeks already. Crazy!
I did not want you to miss out on some really pretty paper and a great stamp set. I used both, along with some coordinating dies to create these cards.
My colors are Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam. Two of my favorites. I know you cannot order the Purple Posy ink pad but you can order Purple Posy Blends to color images, ribbons, accessories. It is a great option to still be able to use the color. Love using my Blends for this purpose, in any color!
My card bases are standard 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 then scored at 4-1/4"
The So Very Vellum paper is a Free Sales-a-Bration earn with a $50.00 product purchase. I cut my pieces to 4" x 5-1/2" so this way you can get six pieces per sheet. The So Very Vellum comes in a 12x12 pack of 3 colors (blue not shown) and you receive two sheets of each color.
Another Free Sale-a-Bration earn with a $50.00 product purchase, is the Happy Birthday To You stamp set. Did you notice, I only have the Flowers on my card and not the cake like the stamp has!!! That's because there is a coordinating product called Birthday Dies and one of the dies just cuts the flowers! This is a huge bonus for me to get altered looks from the stamp set. I used Smokey Slate ink for a softer look.
Here are the dies...
LOOK! The sprig and leaf dies cut 2 at a time!!! So I cut some glimmer sprigs and some vellum leaves.
I'd be remiss if I did not mention the stitched rectangle... this is from one of my NEW FAVORITE Die sets called Stitched So Sweetly found in the 2020 Mini Catalog. It is available in a BUNDLE Call So Sentimental but for this project, I just used the dies. check them out, they are awesome!
