Finally back... Sale-A-Bration

I took a long break from stamping, but back from my hiatus.  I wanted to share with you the cards made at my recent Sale-A-Bration (SAB) event.  This is a simple 3"x3" card that was made with the Punch Bunch stamp set which you can get free with any $50 purchase.  You can view the SAB catalog here.

Stamp Set: Punch Bunch;Card Stock: Whisper White, So Saffron, Level 1 Hostess Designer Series Paper Pack; Ink: Poppy Parade; Accessories: Stampin' Dimensions, Punch

Have you seen the Occasions Mini Catalog?  One of my favorites is the cupcake stamp set.  The best part is there's a matching punch.  This is what we created at the SAB event (also a 3"x3" card).

Stamp Set: Create a Cupcake;
Card Stock: Whisper White, Pink Piroquette, Soft Suede;
Ink: Pink Piroquette, Soft Suede;Accessories: Stampin' Dimensions, Build a Cupcake Punch, Bone Folder, Sponge,
Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Paper Snips, Mini Glue Dots

If you want to make this into a regular A2 card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2"), you can try this:

Here is a close up view.  I sponged the edges of the "Happy Birthday" and curled the piece with a bone folder.  I added dimensionals and mini glue dots to try to keep its shape.  It will probably get smashed when it gets mailed.

Enjoy your week!  Check out my retired items on sale (look at the tab on the top of this page).
