Only one week left before Sale-a-bration starts!!! Sale-a-bration is the best time of the year because so much free products are given away!!! All week, I will post card samples that I made with the Sale-a-bration stamp sets, that you can get for free for every $60 you spend!!!
This card was made using the Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set. It’s one of my favorite set! I love hummingbirds and flowers (maybe you already know that by checking my latest Paper Art frames!) so I guess it’s no surprise that I like that one!!! I also like that it comes with 4 images and 4 greetings. It makes it a very versatile set!
I used the 1″ Square punch and the Postage Stamp punch to make the postage stamps for this card. I first stamped the image on Whisper White card stock and cut it with the 1″square punch. Then, I sponged the each side with Pool Party ink, so you would see the side borders when put over the Postage Stamp punch. I wanted the butterfly to come out of the stamp like it’s flying away and I thought that it would be perfect with the saying “Miracles happen”… I used the new Bitty Butterfly punch (in the mini-occasion catalogue on p.13) to cut the butterfly. Much faster than cutting it by hands!!! I love that it also coordinates with the “Papillon Potpourri” stamp set!
The ribbon is also from the Sale-a-bration free products. It comes as a bundle that includes 3 ribbon spools and 36 buttons, also in 3 colors!
