SU Petal Parade with a Dozen Thoughts for SALE-A-BRATION 2014!

A funny thing called life took me hostage for a few days…but I am back now! I got to hang out tonight with my old pals ( a.k.a my stamps) which made me super happy;) I searched around for some inspiration and found another awesome challenge site called Seize the Sketch created by the super talented Lesley Croghan.  Stampin’ Up has created a lovely DSP this year called Sweet Sorbet for its SALE-A-BRATION starting on January 28 and running through March 31st. I picked two of the designs to use with the SU Petal Parade- another fun SAB stamp set coming out soon. I paired it with the SU A Dozen Thoughts to finish of this softly subtle but at the same time bold card for
Seize the Sketch # 11.

Sneak Peek of SAB 2014- SU See Ya Later

Oh, there are some cute stamp sets available during SALE-A-BRATION 2014 this year. I love the SU See Ya Later set- here is just one of the four images in the set. I masked off the last line of the sentiment so I could put it in the inside- “Miss You Already.” I have the card packed, and I am en route to Pittsburgh right now and I forgot to show you the inside- stop back later this week! It is a rather small sentiment anyway…heeheehee.   I knew the bold and cheery colors at Dynamic Duos #85 this week- Garden Green and Summer Starfruit- would be perfect for Mr. Alligator.

I also used two other SAB 2014 treats- the Distressed Dots EF and the Banner Blast stamp set. Are you getting excited to earn some free items with any $50 order?

SU See Ya Later DD Final

Card Recipe:
STAMPS: SU See Ya Later, SU Banner Blast
INK: SU Garden Green, SU Summer Starfruit
PAPER: SU Garden Green, SU Summer Starfruit, SU Whisper White
ACCESSORIES: SU Garden Green Designer Button (retired- on Clearance Rack), SU Summer Starfruit Satin Stitched Ribbon
TOOLS: SU Distressed Dots, SU Banner Punch, SU Chalk Talk Framelits

I made the sentiment “tag” from two of the Chalk Talk Framelits-


Since the outer framelit is actually smaller than the inner one. Just cut one side and leave the other side out over the die. Then it can be any size you want it to be. You can see in the photo- I used Garden Green for demonstration but actually the border of the sentiment was Summer Starfruit;)
