Don’t you just love FREE! And don’t you just love seeing Sneak Peeks from the yet-to-be released catalog? Well, today’s post features BOTH!
You can get this stamp set, “Botanicals For You” for FREE during the upcoming Sale-A-Bration promotion. The patterned paper “Wildflower Fields” is also from the SAB catalog. Sale-A-Bration is great: you earn a free item from the SAB catalog for FREE with every qualifying purchase! No wonder so many people look forward to SAB each year.
I’m also proud of myself; I stretched out of my comfort zone to do two things I normally don’t do. First I used a bold patterned paper. I’m always afraid it might be too much and overpower my project so I usually shy away from bold patterns, but the bold sentiment really pairs well with the bold patterned background, don’t you think?
Secondly, I stamped directly onto patterned paper. Again, I normally shy away from doing this, but it works really well here. I’m glad I stretched myself to try something different.
While Blackberry Bliss is the most dominant color in the paper, and what I used to stamp the sentiment, I picked up the other colors in the paper for the other elements. Calypso Coral, Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey play together well against the Blackberry Bliss.
This card is headed to someone special because she is awesome! I hope she likes it, and I hope you do too. If you do, make sure to put Sale-A-Bration on your calendar; January 5 – March 31, 2016. And don’t worry about making the qualifying purchases; when you see the Occasions catalog, you’ll want everything!
Make today a happy day, and keep stampin’!
