Just for You – Sale-A-Bration Botanicals

2016 SAB Botanicals for You 1

Good Friday morning.  It’s amazing to think we’ve made it through our first week of 2016.  2015 was a roller coaster with it’s ups an down but it left me wanting more.  Let’s make 2016 even better and jump on the roller coaster again and scream even louder.  I want to say I really appreciate your popping over to my blog and thank you & have a great weekend.

Today’s post features more items from the new Occasions Catalog.  Woohoo!!!  There are so many beautiful, cute and cool things I really had to contain myself.  (Yeah, right.  Lol!)  This designs uses the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Botanicals For You as well as Designer Series Paper from the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.  I liked playing with the bold and soft color palette [Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo and Mint Macaron].  Of course there is a bit of bling with the embossing and sequins.  Lol!

CARD BASE:  This called to me “make me into a Long and Narrow size card”.  [grin]  I started with Daffodil Delight to add brightness layered with Island Indigo (for the bold statement) and It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.  To ground things I added Island Indigo 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon tied into a cute bow at the bottom.  What can I say, I did pop the Island Indigo layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals for added height.  Lol!

SENTIMENT:  I embossed the “just for you” using a cool technique.  Lightly stamp onto a Versamark pad then stamp onto your color-of-choice ink pad.  Next stamp onto cardstock and quickly cover with clear embossing powder,  then heat until shiny.  Viola…..coordinating color embossing.  I used this bold sentiment from the Botanical For You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set.  It is Island Indigo ink stamped onto Whisper White cardstock.  I just had to fussy cut this puppy out and pop with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally I completed the sparkly with a few Gold Sequins to finish it.

Have a great Friday and weekend!
