SALE-A-BRATION blog hopp

You may have hopped here from Vickie's blog.  If not just follow the blog links and you will end up back there!!
We are sharing with you some ideas using the fantastic FREE stamp sets that Stampin Up! are giving away as part of the "sale-a-bration".  Just click on the link in the right hand bar to see how YOU could get your hands on one of these exclusive stamp sets.

The first stamp set I have used is called "Bliss".  Just to be different I ordered the French version - "Joie".

This is a "case" of the card in the sale-a-bration brochure.  I used Old Olive
& Melon Mambo card stock.  Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and So Saffron Ink

These are really simple cards.  The "joie" is stamped in black onto
 whisper White card.  The butterflies are stamped in Pear Pizzaz and Marina Mist.
The butterflies were then stamped again on a piece of scrap card and cut out and
glued to the card.  just a few basic rhinestones finish off the card.
I have also spritzed a little ink onto the cards too.

 The next set I used is called "So Happy for You".  I thought it would be nice to make a set of cards that could be given as a gift.  I kept them simple again to showcase this very versatile set.

I stamped the sentiments in black then used a different "in-colour" for each of the cards :
Peach Parfait
Poppy Parade
Pear Pizzazz
Concord Crush
Blushing Bride.
Again I finished them off with a few rhinestones!!

Lastly I used the "Punch Bunch" set.
I was totally lacking in any ideas so I took out my COLOUR COACH.  I just picked a card at random and the combo that came up was:
Baja Breeze
So Saffron
Poppy Parade.
The reason this set is so quick and easy to use is that the stamps are designed to go with the SU punches.  What about the owl???  Well watch this space!!!

Please carry on this blog hop and see what Jo has been up to HERE
