Non-Christmas Partridge and Pears Card with NEW Sale-a-Bration stamp–Simply Wonderful

When I first saw this Partridge and Pears stamp set, I knew I wanted to use my Blendabilities to color it – but it took until now to actually color the entire tree!  Turns out it is great for cards anytime of the year, don’t you think?

I mixed and matched retiring stamps (Partridge and Pears) with upcoming stamps (Simply Wonderful from Sale-a-Bration).  Not at all Christmas-y!  Smile

Tips for making this card:

  • Stamp the tree image from Partridge and Pears using Memento ink onto White cardstock.  Then color with blendabilities to match the colors and feel you want for your card.  In this case, I used:  Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, and the Skin Tones.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Simply Wonderful stamp set to make this an anytime card (starting January 6, it will be FREE with a $50 order or if you join my Stampin’ Up team)!
  • Add the “hi” die cut from the Label Flipcard Thinlit for a fun touch to your sentiment, with a pearl for the dot of the “I”.
  • Use Stampin’ Dimensionals under the center of the sentiment to help make a rippling banner look.
