Sale-a-bration Blog Hop

http://wackywatercoolerstamping.blogspot.ca/2014/02/lets-celebrate-sale-bration-with-wacky.html

Welcome to The Wacky Watercooler February Sale-a-Bration Blop Hop! It promises to be spectacular, if Deborah's offerings are an example of what's in store.

Since it's Valentine's Day tomorrow, I'll share a card I made that I think is kind of fun. It uses a FREE Sale-a-bration set - Petal Parade as well as a set from the main catalogue - Tag It. This set is also this year's Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set. For every one of these sets that is sold, Stampin' Up donates $3 to support the charity. To date, SU has contributed over $1,000,000 in time and money to RMHC. I've also used the Chalk Talk Framelits and Fashionable Hearts Embosslits on this one.

Here's a recap:
Stamps: Tag It, Petal Parade SAB
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate
Other: Chalk Talk Framelits, Fashionable Hearts Embosslits

And now, my first ever Card in a Box! It was fun making this project, and quite easy to do thanks to some awesome directions from Heidi, one of our dedicated Hop organizers.
A word of caution about this. I found it a very difficult project to photograph! Guess I need more practice. So please enjoy the various views I am sharing here. I tried to get an over-all shot and then close-ups of different elements.


I used a profusion of blooms and butterflies. Trying to evoke Spring! Also used a lot of rhinestones for bling.


The sentiment, from another fab FREE Sale-a-Bration set See Ya Later, is on the front of the box. This is actually going to be sent to one of my three remaining aunts who has a 90th birthday coming up.


This image, from the Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set, Tag It, is on the tallest part of the box.


And a close-up of the flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set, which comes with a co-ordinating punch and is available in a bundle for a 15% savings! This bundle is in the Celebrate the Everyday Spring catalogue.
And here's the list of everything I used:
Stamps: Petite Petals, Tag It, See Ya Later, Secret Garden (for the leaves)
Cardstock: Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding
DSP: Sweet Sorbet (SAB)
Other: Petite Petals Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Deco Labels Collection Framelits, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Candy Dots
