Rainbow Banners over Gray Skies!

Perhaps its all the rain we’re having lately but whatever the reason, I have had a set of rainbow colored cardstock sitting on my desk for over a week now but do I use them? No, instead I reached for my Classic Inks to create this fun card with the Sale-a-Bration Banner Punch!

The cute stamp in the center is also from the Sale-a-Bration range – See Ya’ Later – exactly what we’ll be saying to all the fabulous Sale-a-Bration range in a little over TWO WEEKS. 🙁

Soooo… take a moment or two to have another look through the 2014 Sale-a-Bration folder to check if there’s any other items you require from the promotion and if so, please call at your earliest convenience. With Spring Break about to descend upon us, the next two weeks are going to go so VERY quickly so best not put off until tomorrow if you are really keen on something.

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

You Make Me Happy!

It’s Mojo Monday time and here is this week’s sketch…

Mojo 335 SketchThis is my take on the sketch. As you can see, with the countdown on until the end of Sale-a-Bration this month, I’m making the most of all the wonderful selections there are this year!

Mojo 335 - You Make me Happy - JIFThe three stripes I had created for last weeks challenge and after spending an hour this afternoon looking for just the right color, decided this was what the card needed as I didn’t really want a girlie-girl card. And of course this all had to be run through the Sale-a-Bration’s Decorative Dots Embossing Folder!

Onto the Basic Gray Cardstock I stamped with Basic Gray Classic Ink the arrow from the Petals Parade Stamp Set. I also used the semi-circle “leaf-like” stamp from this set for the Summer Starfruit Cardstock background.

Mojo 335 - Petal Parade Background - JIFThe leaves I punched in Pistachio Pudding Core’dinations from the Bird Builder Punch then did some accordion folding with a strip of the Pistachio to create the Paper Ribbon. The finishing touch was a cork flower from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Kit from which I also added a couple of the arrow pieces to the sentiment. This too is from Sale-a-Bration, the See Ya Later Stamp Set which I stamped and sponged in Summer Starfruit Classic Ink.
