Last night was my February meet & greet with my local Bay Area Card Makers meetup group. We had a fun night of socializing and, of course, card making! I always bring a free project for everyone to make, and after receiving some new Sale-a-Bration items recently, I knew I wanted to get those out to play. So, I grabbed the new So Happy For You stamp set and the Ice Cream Parlor ribbon (check them out in the 2011 SAB catalog) and out popped this card:
I had seen a card made by AlyStamps and loved how the thanks from the So Happy For You stamp layered using the small oval and large oval punches. I’ve also been obsessed with spectrum style cards right now, so I put them together. The card is actually very fast to put together because the squares of cardstock are punched out using the 1-1/4” square punch. We then stamped those squares using Versamark ink, so we could get the tone-on-tone look without having to switch back and forth between different ink pads. So the only think you really have to cut is the base cardstock and the Early Espresso mat for the spectrum which I cut at 5-1/8” x 1-3/8”.
I love this stamp set, and will probably be playing with it a lot more in the future and the ribbon is super fun too (though I’m just dying over the buttons! love them!). Get either set FREE with a $50 order, or get both with a $100 order! Don’t you just love Sale-a-Bration time?
