Creative Inking Blog Hop - Sale-a-bration Coordination

Creative inking logoWelcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop, I am so excited to be part of this hop and I know you will enjoy all the projects this month.  We are focusing on the Sale-a-bration Coordination items and I chose to work with the More Than Words stamp set and the Story Label Punch.  I am also using the Painted Seasons stamp set that is part of the Painted Seasons Bundle that you can earn FREE with a $100 order through the end of the month.
I started by stamping a whole sheet of Whisper White with the Painted Seasons stamp set using Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and a bit of Memento Tuxedo Black.  I then cut some of it up and created the two cards I have for you today. Painted seasons OSW
Painted seasons OSWBoth of my cards use sentiments from the More Than Words Sale-a-bration Coordination stamp set and the Story Label Punch.
Painted seasons OSWI also added some of the Granny Apple Green 1/2" Textured Weave Ribbon and a few of the Frosted Epoxy Droplets.
Painted seasons OSWI love to add dimension to these labels by punching one from a coordinating color, snipping it in half and adding both halves to the back of the stamped label, separating them slightly.
Painted seasons OSWI used a piece of the Granny Apple Green striped DSP that comes in the Brights 6x6 Designer Series Paper Stack.
Painted seasons OSWI added a half of a Coastal Cabana Doily to the back of my label and used my same trick of splitting one of the labels (black in this case) to make it appear that I have another slightly larger label for the back.
