I spent a half an hour the other talking on the phone to a friend that I haven’t spoken to in a while (we text & facebook, but haven’t heard her voice in a while). I’m not much of a ‘talk on the phone’ kind of person; I call when I have something to say and usually keep it short & sweet. But it was really nice to catch up with Laura, and she is going thru some really rough physical ailments, and recently had a set back in her journey. Laura has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know, and is always full of joy and maintains such a positive spirit! I was so uplifted just talking on the phone with her, that I went down to My Stampin’ Space and whipped up this card to send to her.Of course, I had to use all my new goodies to make this special card for a special friend! I started with a Whisper White card base layered with a piece of Perfectly Artistic DSP in gray with the watercolor side up. I layered a piece of Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum on top of that layer. (Both of these items are FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration! – Sweet!) I cropped a banner of Whisper White card stock using the Banner Triple Punch and then stamped the Hello, My Friend sentiment in Crushed Curry ink and Lost Lagoon Ink using the “Hello” stamp set (also FREE during Sale-A-Bration).
The flowers are from the “What I Love” stamp set (you guessed it, also FREE! – I love FREE, how about you?) This was my top pick from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. I used Lost Lagoon, Mint Macaron, Crushed Curry & Melon Mambo for the flowers & leaves. My paper snips helped me fussy cut all the flowers & leaves in no time.
The overall design/layout was CASE’D from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. The samples shown were the reason that this is my favorite stamp set in the SAB catalog. The designers at Stampin’ UP! offer us such great ideas and layouts and are a great springboard for our own creations. While the catalog was my inspiration, my card is uniquely my own. Is there a project in the catalog that has inspired you to make a project your own?
Well, by now, you’re probably wondering how you can get all of these stamps and papers for FREE, right? Sale-A-Bration, that’s how!
