Every year I have a favourite Sale-a-Bration product, and this year is no exception. I just love using this Sunshine and Rainbows Designer Series Paper. It's so bright and cheerful, and just makes me smile every time I use it.
It partners so well with the Rainbow of Happiness Bundle too. For this card, I've used the DSP in the background and used the dies to cut a rainbow window. It was a happy find to realise that one of the rainbow patterns in the DSP perfectly fits behind the cut-out window! I've also used the dies to cut out some sweet little clouds, and added some bling with the Iridescent Rhinestones.
I hope you're day is as bright and cheery as this card!

I wanted to keep this card soft and sweet, just like this little bird, so I've gone with pretty pastel tones - Pale Papaya, Pool Party and So Saffron. This is the Friendly Hello Sale-a-Bration bundle - I've used both the Designer Series Paper and the stamps on this card.
For a bit of visual interest, I popped a doily behind the little bird. This is a Heart & Home Doily, but I've used the reverse side as I just wanted it white, not coloured. I embossed the sentiment in White, so it really pops. I've been using these words a lot for birthday cards...it says it all, really! Something else I've been using a LOT of are the Iridescent Rhinestones. I love how they just seem to take on the colours of whatever you stick them on.
Thanks for stopping by!

I'm going to miss these Awesome Otters when Sale-a-Bration ends. Thankfully here in the South Pacific market, we have an extra couple of weeks to enjoy them, since Sale-a-Braion has been extended until March 16!
This was a fun card to make! I like creating a scene with stamps. To make the 'waves' I used the 'hill' stamp from the Penguin Place stamp set (currently on the Carryover list, so will be returning in a future Catalogue). I think my floating otter is bringing a fishy present to the Birthday Boy, who is happily splashing in the waves. I used Blends to colour these guys, in some of the new Natural Tones.... not just for human skin!

I've been enjoying playing with all the new Sale-a-Bration stamp sets (now that we can finally get our hands on them all!). This is not the style of set that I would normally gravitate towards (I don't have many young girls in my life at the moment), but when it's FREE, it's a fun chance to try something a bit different.
I also have some good news to share on the Sale-a-Bration front. Since so many products were unavailable for the first few weeks, Sale-a-Bration has been extended in our market until March 16! That gives us all an extra 2 weeks to take advantage of the freebies. Yay!
I have shamelessly CaSEd the Sale-a-Bration brochure for this one, and just changed a few things to make it my own.
Thanks for stopping by!

This is such a versatile sketch that could work with just about any stamp set....and since we have so many fabulous new sets, the hardest part of this card was choosing one! I decided on Cactus Cuties, because it hadn't seen any ink yet:
