So, I know it’s wrong. But. Hey… if you wanna be part of the it, you gotta sign up to be a demonstrator. That’s part of the perks.
What’s WRONG (at least how you guys must see it) is that I have my SAB stuff and am CURRENTLY playing with it. So exciting. It’s a VERY fun year in regards to Sale-A-Bration. So, I think it is LOVELY…
But, I couldn’t WAIT to show you what I get to play with!! Though I cannot show you the set of stamps, I can show you stuff I made with said stamps.
This card is made with a set called Madison Avenue. It is the one I made for a swap I am in with some other team members. One of my upline demos has organized it. This is a second year I’ve participated in the swap. It’s a lot of fun and I get lots of great cards made by talented demos (another PERK of being a demo). Made sitting in my friend, Anne’s kitchen (another demo…which is another PERK… stamping is a communal sport…)
Anyway, here it is:
So, in this, I’m using the Madison Avenue Stamp set, the coordinating Sycamore Street DSP, and Vine Street (TIEF). ALL of these items are in the SAB catalog (which means, you get one free with every $50 you spend on merchandise). YAY!
Here is a close up. (Gasp, you do have to cut the tangerine tango layer out of the flower by hand….) Sorry. But, it adds SO much… it really doesn’t take long.
I don’t know why, but I’ve been in a texture layering mood lately. So, as you can (kind-of) see, the rich razzleberry is embossed with the vine street (TIEF). Then, I layered the DSP with the same print, then dsp with polka-dots and a solid (Tangerine Tango). I just love the bright colors. It really is kind of an ‘in your face’ card but it is a perfect, cheery, “Hello” in an envelope. The card base is made out of summer starfruit (confession, when I first saw starfruit, I thought it looked vaguely similar to something that comes out of a newborn… BUT… IT IS PROBABLY ONE OF MY FAVORITE COLORS now…) absolutely love it. And, I would nave never thought of using these colors with it, but was just trying to keep the same as what is in the dsp… And, it works!! Those SU designers have it all figured out.
You will get a chance to earn SAB products starting January 22. So… if you wanna host a workshop (get more stuff for free) give me a call and we can set a date. Also, if you haven’t received the new Occasions Mini, or the SAB catalog, let me know and I will be happy to get you one.
Anyway, As preparations are being made for ringing in a new year, I wish you the best. And, hopefully you are safe and have a little time to enjoy some crafting!! And family!! and friends!! and… and…and… we are so richly blessed….
AND OH!! Our next blog tour is coming up… Jan 13!! It will feature Hearts A Flutter from the Occasions Mini (Think Valentine’s!!)
