Blooming Marvelous: Celebrate Spring!

This is another card that I made with the Blooming Marvelous stamp set (one of the Sale-a-bration set!). I also used the greeting “Celebrate” from the “Feeling Sentimental” stamp set (another Sale-a-bration set!).  This card has a real “Spring” feel! The new Bitty Butterfly punch fits perfectly with the butterfly stamp in that set.  I used it to make a “raised” butterfly. I think it really adds to the card by creating more dimensions.  The Fancy Fan embossing in the background also complements the texture.

Vintage Verse Sale-a-bration set meets Bloomin’ Marvelous

For today’s card, I used 2 Sale-a-bration sets: Vintage Verse (There’s only one you) and Bloomin’ Marvelous (the Turquoise butterfly).  The other butterfly is from the “Papillon Potpourri” set, that I really like too! You can now get the smaller butterfly punch that coordinate with both the Papillon Potpourri and Bloomin’ Marvelous. (It’s called “Bitty Butterfly”.) I wanted to make the butterfly really stand out, to go with the greeting “There’s only one you”.  I stamped it in Midnight Muse ink and colored it with the Markers. It’s raised with a dimensional to make it “pop” even more.  In the background, I used the new Honeycomb embossing folder.

Only one week left before Sale-a-bration starts!!!

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!
