Patterned Occasions

Sale-A-Bration is here for almost another month.  One of the sets you can get FREE with a $50 order is Patterned Occasions.  This set of 5 images is great for quick and easy cards.


We made this card at the February stamp club meetings.  The caption for the jeans is supposed to be "Congratulations, Smarty Pants."  For those who wanted a birthday card instead, it was an easy change.  We simply stamped the sentiment from one of the other stamps and did a little free form cutting.  The white gel pen around the edge was a nice accent that coordinated with the stitching on the jeans.
The elephant with the flower is so cute.  To get the multi color image from one stamp, I inked up the entire stamp on the ink pad, then took a q-tip and wiped the ink off the flower.  Then pulled out my markers and colored the stem and petals directly on the rubber. 

I had fun layering different punches behind the elephant image.  Notice the scallop embossing that goes under the focal point?  I used the new Borders Scoring Plate (Occasions Mini p. 26) for the Simply Scored. It's a nice way to add some texture to a card or scrapbook page.

Cheers,
Sharon
