I'm Back!!! With a Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set Design . . .

Hi, folks!  I've been away for far too long due to some family health issues.  Things are looking much brighter now, so it's time for me to get back into the swing of things.

Today I'm going to share with you a fun card I found on Pinterest . . . created by Nicky Dexter of the UK.  To view more of Vicky's designs, follow this link to her blog:

February Front Range Stampers Swap Card
Assignment:  Sale-a-Bration


Stamp Sets:
* Gorgeous Grunge
* See Ya Later (Sale-a-Bration)

* Crumb Cake card stock (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"; scrap for 1-3/4" Circle)
* Whisper White card stock (5" x 3-3/4"; scrap for sentiment)
* Wisteria Wonder card stock (5-1/8" x 3-7/8" card stock)

* Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' Pad
* Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad
* Wisteria Wonder Stampin' Pad

Accessories and Tools:
* Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
* Apothecary Accents Framelits Die
* 1-3/4" Circle Punch
* Linen Thread
* Adhesives: SNAIL Adhesive; Stampin' Dimensionals

(Unless otherwise indicated, SNAIL Adhesive was used to assemble this card)

  1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from scoreline to create card.
  2. Using Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad, stamp lines image from Gorgeous Grunge on Whisper White card stock (I stamped one image at left edge of paper about 1" from top; one image just below the first; and the third next to the second image at the right edge of the paper).
  3. Using Wisteria Wonder Classic Stampin' Pad, stamp large droplets image randomly.
  4. Using Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' Pad, stamp small droplets image randomly.
  5. Adhere Whisper White card stock to Wisteria Wonder card stock.  Wrap Linen Thread twice around the card stock, and adhere card stock to front of card.
  6. Punch 1-3/4" Circle from Crumb Cake card stock.
  7. Using Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' Pad, stamp sentiment on Whisper White card stock; use Big Shot and Apothecary Accents die to cut out image.  Adhere sentiment to circle, and use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere circle to front of card as shown.
Inside (optional):  Whenever possible, I like the insides of my cards and the envelopes to match the front of the card.  For this card, I stamped a few of the Gorgeous Grunge images to tie it all together.

Hope you enjoy this card.  I think it would make a great Valentine's Day, anniversary or wedding card.  Although I really like this color combination (that's what initially drew me to this card), you could change the colors to match wedding colors if you're using the design for that purpose.
