Hey, Chick! Have a Happy Day!

Happy Saturday!

I wanted to share a couple of cards featuring Sale-a-bration freebies, since SAB is almost over -- ends on March 31st.  Get them before they're gone!  Free product with every $50 order, AND SU just added a few new things to the line up this week.

Two of THE most popular Sale-a-brations sets, have been "Hey Chick" and "Delicate Details".  I just LOVE the chicken with the messy hair.  She just makes me laugh!  For this card, we used the new Watercolor pencils with watercolor paper, and either Blender Pens or an Aqua Painter to color them in -- so folks could try out both options to see which one they liked best.  The chicken wire background, was made by inking up the inside of the hexagon embossing folder, and using it as a "stamp" to create the background.  Colors used: card stock -- Heavy weight white, water color paper, Crumb Cake, Espresso.  Ink: Early Espresso and water color pencils.  Also featured: stitched dies, layering circle dies, classic label punch, and the Metallic Enamel shapes.

This card features the Delicate Details set.  I layered three of the stamps on a block, using my grid paper to make sure the stamps were straight.  We then stamped them in Versamark and embossed them with white embossing powder.  Of course, we sponged some Espresso ink on the edges of the panel to create more of a vintage look. Folks could choose to make either the chicken card or this card -- two different Sale-a-bration sets with completely different looks -- one cutesy/funny, and one elegant.  Those little wood hearts, are from the sending love embellishments and the little flower embellishments are the Falling in Love embellishments -- by far my favorite product from the Occasions catalog -- elegant, intricate, and beautiful! These detailed border stamps also work perfectly for the edging on a note card.  Super simple, but so stunning!  Pair them with the "So Very Much" SAB set, and you have easy peasy, gorgeous thank you notes!

Ok! that's it for today!  Off to enjoy a day with my family!  Maybe the first bike ride of the season, or swimming, or skiing, or bacon and eggs!

Have a Happy Day!!!!
