Sale a Bration 2011 Begins..................

Hello Everyone! Hope you all had a Lovely Christmas. Well Today is the day Sale a Bration Starts........

It lasts from 30th December to 28 February. For Every £45 worth of products you purchase from the current catalogue you get to choose a FREE Sale a Bration Stamp Set - YES FREE!!!

There are four Stamp Sets to choose from. The first Stamp Set I have had a play with is called Sweet Summer. After all the snow we have had it was nice to be thinking of Summer instead!

We were meant to going to Cornwall for Christmas but we got stuck at home because of the weather. We all promised eachother that although we were at home, we wouldn't actually do any work, and I managed to keep to that for once! So Yesterday was the first time I went and got a few bits to work with.

These are the bits and bobs I made while still watching the movies we had recorded for Christmas. My hubbie and I sat down two days running to watch the GodFather Movies - Classics, What a treat.

As Demonstrators we were allowed to preorder the Sale a bration stamp sets earlier in the Month. I first made this little box, just like the Lollipop box filled with cards this time.
The colour combination is Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Shimmery White Cardstock. The paper is from the In Colour paper stacks.

The sentiments is from the other Sale a Bration stamp set called So Happy For YOU!

I added lots of pearls to the flower heads and the butterfly was stamped in black stazon on the paper layers and coloured in with the blushing bride in colour marker pen.
Don't you just love the tiny BEE?

And the Cute little bird?

On this card, I used Regal Rose ink instead of the Blushing Bride for the flowers.

This is the same but with Blushing Bride ink.

Lots and Lots of Pearls! The Shimmery White cardstock is such a luxury but it is gorgeous for colouring in with.

This is a Birthday card using the tall stems on three sections. Very Simple! Again the sentiment is from the So Happy For YOU Sale a Bration stamp set.

I made a matching tiny Gift Card holder to match the Birthday Wishes card. The scallop imaged is from another Sale a Bration set called Punch Bunch.
Its layered onto a Scallop Square made using the Scallop Trim Corner Punch. 2" x 2". Then the punched image was layered on top. YEP! You saw them, MORE Pearls.
I used the Textured cardstock in the Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz - Delish!
What a lovely matching pair to give to someone Special.....

Right then after I have mounted the rest of the images, I will be back!!!
Thanks for looking,

What a gorgeous little card set Jenny, so fresh and bright. I have inked that set for the first time today but have not been nearly as productive as you with your beautiful creation. I need to get my finger out.

Hope you had a lovely rest but sorry to hear you didn't make it to Cornwall after all.

These look good and as you say a welcome change from wintry cards. Thanks for enclosing the leaflet with my hostess gift which I received yesterday.

Love the cards. Great ideas for the Sale-a-bration sets. Bigger than that is that you like the Godfather. Godfather 2 is my favorite of the set. Watch it every time if comes on television.

Hi Jenny, I really must agree with many of the other ladies comments in that this is such a GORGEOUS set and really beautiful colour choices. I too would be interested in a tutorial if you did one... I recently submitted my pre-order for the SAB sets and this was not one of them....may need to change that... thx again for sharing your amazing creativity!!!
