Oh my goodness, is it seriously almost April already? How did that happen? That also means that there are only a handful of days left in Sale-a-Bration!
This is also usually the time that I get wistful that some awesome stamps and accessories are about to be retired and I use the heck out of them to make up for lost time. And so today is no exception! Here are two cards that I made for a card night I’m running today. Both use the Ice Cream Parlor designer paper (that comes with the Quick Accent die cut stickers).
This first card here uses the coordinating Ice Cream Parlor buttons – seriously how stinkin’ cute are they? It is taking all of my willpower not to hoard them! Just breathe and say “they will lead a happier life when they are on a card being given to someone instead of on a shelf in a bag”. I also used the So Happy For You stamp set…my absolute favorite from Sale-a-Bration this year. I know this set won’t be collecting dust in my house! Finally, though you can’t see it, we’ll be spraying Smooch Spritz in Gold Glow on the Daffodil Delight cardstock for an extra bit of fun shimmery shine.
Next up, we have another example showcasing the designer paper but this time, instead of using the buttons, we are using the ribbon that comes with the buttons – the Ice Cream Parlor ribbon. Its so bright and cheery and the perfect size to use for tons of projects. Well, in this case, I wanted to play with the ticket corner punch and brads around the main image (the flower pot from the hostess set – A Slice of Life). Oh yeah, and we’re going to be doing some paper piecing to get the flower pot out of the matching designer paper. So, here ya go:
I also decided to go outside of my comfort zone and had NO sentiment on the front of the card. I don’t know why its seems like you must have a sentiment on the front of the card, but I’m trying to convince myself you don’t. I’d love to here what you all think!
So, don’t miss out on your chance to get these cutie patootie buttons and ribbon pack, or the designer paper and quick accent pack; either one for FREE with your $50. Or get both with a $100 order. Only 8 days left….and counting!
