Sale-a-Brate a Birthday


I loved this year's Sale-a-Bration stamp sets. And although Sale-a-Bration is over, many of you probably have these amazing sets, like the See Ya Later stamp set, which provides a variety of stamps for different occasions. This was my favorite set this year and I used it on several cards. I love how if you designed one card, you could basically interchange the stamps in this set using the same design.

Stampin' Tips:

  • Color scheme: Marina Mist, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Strawberry Slush
  • Stamp set: SAB14 See Ya Later
  • Accessories: Apothecary Accents Framelits, SAB Calypso Coral Baker's Twine, Stampin' Write Markers, 5"x3-1/2" Notecards
  • Designer Series Paper: SAB14 Sweet Sorbet
  • Use Stampin' Write Markers to color the stamp. Make sure to give it "the breath of life" before you stamp to moisten the colors. Use the Apothecary Design framelit to cut out the image. 
  • Cut out another Apothecary Design in Marina Mist. Cut this in half and adhere to both ends of the stamped imaged for a layering effect. Adhere these layers to the DSP using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Adhere the Sweet Sorbet DSP to a Marina Mist layer. Before adhering it to the Whisper White card base, wrap the Calypso Coral Baker's Twine around it and finish off with a bow. 
Super simple card on my favorite 5"x3-1/2" Notecards. 

Happy Stampin',
