More Snow, More SAB prep!

Good Morning! We sure have received our fair share of snow here in the midwest lately! WOW! I do love snow though ;o) I spent Saturday and Sunday afternoon in my stampin' space while it snowed here! I love the winter but my darling hubby might tell you another story - he has lots of snow to remove during this time of year!! lol

Anyway here is another SAB project I have been working on!! This one was fun too!

It may be kinda hard to see in this picture but the white flower is embossed and the thank you sentiment is actually stamped on the background and it's showing thru the window word punch ~ ~ ~

This color combo, too, came from the wonderful SU! Color Coach! It uses Tempting Turquoise as the base, Apricot Appeal as the second layer and Certainly Celery as the top layer. The middle of the flower is rose red, I believe - (but I forgot to write that color down and I dont have the actual card here in front of me now!)

The stamp sets used were So Many Scallops (SAB) and Short & Sweet.

I started out by stamping and embossing the flower with the Winter White Emboss Powder. I then used the little flower from the Short & Sweet set and randomly stamped them with Certainly Celery ink on the CC card stock.

Next I used the window word punch and punched a space for the little 'thank you' greeting out of the certainly celery cardstock - I then stamped the greeting on the apricot appeal cardstock using rose red ink. I then also stamped the center of the flower and punched those out using the 1" circle punch. I attached the center of the flower with one stampin' dimensional to make it pop a bit.

My final step before putting this card together was to attach a little piece of White Grosgrain ribbon around the right side of the window word punch ~ just to give it a little extra touch!

As always, here is my recipe:

Stamp Sets: So Many Scallops, Short & Sweet
Card Stock: Color combo from Color Coach – Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal
Stampin’ Pads: Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral, Ruby Red
Accessories: 1” Circle Punch, Window Word Punch, Winter White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Stampin’ Dimensionals, White Grosgrain Ribbon

The countdown to the annual SAB promo is getting closer -- just about a week before it starts on Feb 1st! YEAHH!!!

~Enjoy & TFL~
