Sale-a-bration 2016

Sky is the Limit - Get it While You Can!

A few of the Sale-a-bration items are only available through February 15th so if you are itching to get your hands on the Sky is the Limit and Hello stamp sets or the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper now is the time to order. :-)

This is one of the cards my club members made this month and most of them chose this stamp set as one of the freebies with their order. 

Sky_is_the_limit_gray
We used the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper on the bottom section and we stamped both clouds on it in Smoky Slate.  The same clouds were stamped in the same color on the top Whisper White section.  The heart smoke trail was colored with our new Wink of Stella in Clear as well as the propeller.

Sale-a-bration starts in two weeks!

Our biggest sale of the year, SALE-A-BRATION starts in two short weeks so I have been busy preparing my swaps and this is one of them.

I used two Sale-a-bration products on this card, the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper and the Perfect Pairings stamp set.  The Wildflower Fields DSP is full of amazing floral patterns but I love, love, love this mosaic pattern, it is too much fun!!! Perfect_pariings_tshirt
Perfect_pariings_tshirt_closeThe Calypso Coral strip peeking out from behind the patterned paper is done with the Rotary Addition on my Stampin Trimmer.  I used the Tiny Wave Blade for a fun zigzag effect.

 

I used the Baby's First Framelits to crop the baby onesie and snipped off the bottom to create a t-shirt.  The Little Numbers Thinlits are perfect for adding the age.  You will be able to earn the stamp set and DSP FREE with your orders during Sale-a-bration.
