Welcome to the Inksomniacs Team Blog Hop!

Welcome to our team Blog Hop!  I am excited today to be able to show you some gorgeous new products as this time our theme is to CASE a project from any of our catalogue.  I wanted to showcase either the Occasions or Sale-a-Bration catalogues so  I've chosen a card that grabbed my attention from my very first peek at the SAB catalogue. You'll find it on page 16.  Firstly I made a version almost the same as the original in the catalogue.  I liked it but wanted to step it up a bit so the one you see here is my second version... same layout, but I changed the colours and other elements:

  So I used a piece of Whisper White thick cardstock as my base, and then added a layer of vellum on top of that. I stamped and embossed my flower with Versamark and then embossed it with Silver embossing powder. I coloured in the flowers with Pink Pirouette Blends markers.  For the sentiment, I used the Celebrate You framelits for the word "Amazing".... It's a little bigger than the original stamped sentiment, and I think it adds an extra "punch" to the card.  The frayed ribbon poking out behind the card is also from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue... its part of the Shimmer Ribbon 3-pack.

Here's a close up:

The stamp set, the ribbons and the framelits are all part of this year's SAB promotion... you can have them free as a gift with purchase.  Most of them you only need to spend $90 on any Stampin'Up products (except for the framelits which are available for free with a $180 order)  I love them all, and think that this year's SAB offerings are just amazing!

Hey Linda, nice choice of stamps! I do like the silver embossing on velum! The frayed ribbon effect is really pretty too.
