Now that you know what Sale-A-Bration is, you’ll want to add Lots of Lavender to the top of your must have list.

I needed to make some Thank You cards and Birthday cards and thought this would be a good image to use for either.  I wanted to experiment using this 2-step stamp set so I started out by stamping on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using the lavender image with Versamark ink and then heat embossing with Gold Embossing Powder.  I used my Blender Pen to fill in color from my ink pads using Pear Pizzaz, Perfect Plum and Pool Party.  I was so pleased with this, that I knew I had to make this focal point of a card!  I quickly layered this piece onto coordinating Perfect Plum cardstock.  Lightbulb moment!  I just knew the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketch challenge was JUST PERFECT for this image.  I quickly whipped out some Washi Tape in Perfect Plum (retired)  and I had a perfect sketch challenge entry.

Since I need to make some birthday cards and thank you cards so I decided to add a sentiment, and here is my final result:

Lots of Lavendar, Happy Birthday, Nancy Gleason, My Stampin Space, Rose Wonder, Sale-A-Bration 2018, floral, gold embossing, blender pen, washi tape

Here is the 2nd card I made.  There’s just a subtle difference with the sentiments, but which do you like better?

Lots of Lavendar, Happy Birthday, Nancy Gleason, My Stampin Space, Beautiful Bouquet, Sale-A-Bration 2018, floral, gold embossing, blender pen, washi tape

Take a look at the sketch that was my inspiration for this card:

Here’s an up-close of the water-coloring technique I did with the floral design.

So simple with the Blender Pens yet it has such a “WOW” factor!  I strongly encourage you to get Blender Pens if you haven’t tried them yet.  They are also a good stepping stone to using the Stampin’ Blends markers too.  If you love coloring, the Blender Pens and Stampin’ Blends will transport you to coloring heaven!  Both are so easy and fun to use but give different results.

You can earn the Lots of Lavender as a Level 1 Sale-A-Bration FREE item (with a qualifying $50 purchase before tax & shipping).  Be sure that you place your orders in $50 increments so can earn a FREE item.  You can shop on line here.
