You Make Me Happy - and a couple of tips!

I finally had about an hour to dedicate to getting creative. I came up with a card that uses some of the Sale-A-Bration goodies available free for every $50 you spend. Here is the card:

Tip #1

I bought an extra See Ya Later stamp set in clear mount. I absolutely love the style of the sentiments, but may not always want the icon that goes with them. The icon and the sentiment are together on the same stamp. Masking is a pain and I wanted a better solution than resorting to using markers to color in only the parts that I wanted directly onto the stamp. So, in the end I turned my set of 4 into a set of 8 by cutting the stamp in two. I cut the icon loose from the sentiment! Because this set is an extra, I have the choice now to use the stamp as a whole or to use my separated set.

Tip #2

I needed to apply Dimensionals so I could mount my card elements around the twine. I only had a little space to work with, so I cut the edges off of the Dimensionals sheet for long and put the narrower pieces behind my elements.

It's Sale-A-Bration Time!!!

Remember that Sale-A-Bration is going on right now. Shop in my online store and not only get improved hostess benefits, but you can also take advantage of a free Sale-A-Bration item for every $50 that you spend.
