Hello everyone!  (Well, hopefully there's at least one person reading this, because I do like to share, you know?)

I have one more Sale-A-Bration "sneak peek" for you, using colours inspired by this card by my friend Claire.  I love the boldness of Rose Red, Taken With Teal and Pumpkin Pie together.  Once more, I've coloured a white-embossed image on kraft  - this time, the flower stamp from Happy Moments, my second-favourite Sale-A-Bration set!  The vase was created by (accident, actually, but I rather like it) punching out the stamped kraft panel with a Wide Oval Punch, then using a circle punch to make the indentation in the top.  Pretty cool?  The flowers and vase are raised up on dimensionals (double-sided adhesive foam dots).  The tiny butterflies stamped in Versamark (clear ink) along the base of the teal card are from Hello Again, a sweet stamp set from the Summer Mini catalogue.


Stamps: Happy Moments and Whimsical Words (Sale-A-Bration sets), Hello Again (Summer mini)

Card: Taken With Teal, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Kraft

Ink: Versamark ink pad; Taken With Teal stampin' pad; Rose Red, Taken With Teal, Pumpkin Pie & Old Olive markers
