2016 Sale-A-Bration International Blog Hop

Welcome to our Sale-A-Bration blog hop! This group of international demonstrators is getting together to highlight some of the fantastic products available in this year's SAB catalog. You are going to want all of it, I am telling you right now, lol!

I love the variety of styles and the great sentiments in the collection this year. I can't wait to get the Party Pants and the Pedal Pushers sets myself, but I have been enjoying playing with the Flowering Fields set this time :)

I was invited to join this hop when one of my cards was one of Kyle Bertucci's most-pinned of the week. How could I resist?! I will be hopping with some of the really big demos from around the world and am feeling a bit of pressure. You will all have to let me know if I met the standards ;)

You probably just arrived from Rose Mary Coleman's blog. I am certain that she inspired you with her crisp and clean style :)

I was struck by a mental image of these wildflowers growing out of the retaining wall in my yard, and this card is where that ended. I used three of the SAB offerings for this card- the Flowering Fields and Perfect Pairings sets, and the Botanical Gardens vellum DSP.

The Crumb Cake diagonal piece is embossed with the Brick Wall embossing folder, then brushed with a barely dampened paintbrush and Crumb Cake and Whisper White inks.

From this angle you can see that the "wall" is up on dimensionals. And maybe you can see that the flowers are watercolored.

Inside I stamped the flower again in Archival Basic Black ink, then used a blender pen to color it like the ones on the front of the card. Then a swirl of Clear wink of Stella to add a little glam over the flower head :)

As always, if you have seen something you need for your crafting life, just click the image in the supply list below and it will take you to my store! If your order is less than $150, please use this month's Host Code: PCUN2KHD
And be sure to check the box letting me contact you, as I can't send you a thank you card if I can't see your address :)  I promise, I will only send you happy mail, no junk mail!

Now, be sure to continue hopping along to the other blogs. There are going to be so many great ideas, you won't want to miss a single one!

Great Card, Tanya! I have an angled retaining wall in my yard, now I can't wait for spring to plant some lovely flowers behind it!
