SALE-A-BRATION 2011 Blog Hop

Thank you for joining in the Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop. I'm the first blog in group 2, so you will either have started with me and come along from Laura at the end of group 1.

My first card uses the cute owl from the Punch Bunch Sale-a-Bration set. I stamped the owl twice in Soft Suede on Whisper White twice and cut it out and then again in Concord Crush and Blushing Bride on the corresponding colour Designer Pad that is a level 1 Hostess set.

The background was stamped using the Love you Much set and the Poppy Parade Red heart where again from the Designer pad using the Heart to Heart punch.

Watch out for the Owl Punch coming in April.

My next card uses the Sale-a-Bration set Sweet Summer. The stems are stamped in Pear Pizzazz and using the blender pen the leaves were coloured in. The heart flowers are the tiny heart fron the Heart to Heart punch. One in Early Expresso, Baja Breeze and So Saffron. These have been embellished with the tiny self adhesive pearls. The butterfly was stamped in So Saffron and again coloured using the blender pen. The image was then mounted on Early Expresso and Pear Pizzazz ribbon is tied around. This was then mounted on the Baja Breeze which was stamped with one of the flower heads also in Baja Breeze.


This next card I did with my team. The base is Baja Breeze. Using Red Riding Hood I stamped the large image from the Sale-a-Bration Bliss set in each of the four corners. Added a couple of butterflies also from this set. A panel of Red Riding Hood that has used the Scallop Trim Border punch. Again using the Punch Bunch set the scallop Happy Birthday square and punch out uing the scallop square punch.
The flowers are our new paper flowers that have been spritzed with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and Peach Parfait mixed with rubbing alcohol and embellished with a large pearl.

Well I hope you have enjoyed my offerings and now your next stop is to very talented Emma.

I like that last colour combo especially, hadn't tried the red with the baja. A lovely set of cards. The sweet summer one is a great idea using the punched hearts for the flowers.

The heart flowers are just so sweet - might have to nick that idea :-)
