The Final Countdown!

oh no, now I have that song stuck in my head! LOL
I just realised that there are only 6 days of Sale-a-Bration left!!! This month has just flown by.
These are the cards that we've been making in this month's Stamp-a-Stacks, using the Polka Dot punches Sale-a-Bration set. We used the same 3 pieces of cardstock, plus some punched elements, and made 4 very different cards:

Marelle Taylor Stampin' Up! AustraliaI think they're pretty self-explanatory. I hadn't used this colour combination before, but I like the way they look together. I'm getting the most out of my In Colors before they retire!

The stamp set is "Polka Dot Punches" which I'm loving more and more you like the way I stamped a Wild Wasabi flower and cut all but 2 of the petals off to turn it into leaves? (in the card, top-right). In that same card, I also did small cuts along the Wild Wasabi strip to make 'grass'. The stem is just a row of dots, drawn with the fine point of a Garden Green marker. I used the edge of a ribbon spool as a template to make it curved.

You can earn this stamp set for free, but you only have until 28th February. There are 4 sets to choose from, each one is free with a $100 order. You can see them all HERE. Just email me with your order!
