Just add Saleabration

Its been a relaxing afternoon with lovely warm temperatures but it is cooling quickly now it is evening - after all it is Autumn here in Australia now:-) The days are getting shorter and the trees are losing their leaves….and although its been a hot and dry Summer, I am not looking forward to Winter.

So today's card uses the favourite of Summer's products - those available  for FREE during Saleabration! All thanks to the great challenge at Just Add Ink this week to "Just Add Saleabration". What a fabulous idea! And a great way to celebrate Summer too :-)

And it is also loosely based on the sketch at the Paper Craft Crew this week but won't be used for that challenge.

Mainly, I just wanted to see how many Saleabration items I could use :-)
So how many can you count?

There is the Petal Parade stamp set, the Calypso Coral Twine and cork flower, the gorgeous Sweet Sorbet DSP and my favourite item, the Decorative Dots EF.

So for this card I started from the DSP and chose the colours from that :-)

The card base is Crisp Cantaloupe and the leaves images are stamped in Sahara Sand to blend in with the Cork flower. The smaller flower is stamped in Pool Party ink and then punched out and the larger in Crisp Cantaloupe and cut using the Circle Framelits.

Card stock: Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Sweet Sorbet
Ink: Sahara Sand, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party
Stamps: Petal Parade, Happiest Birthday Wishes (Retired)
Accessories: Big Shot, Circle Framelits, Decorative Dots EF, Sweet Sorbet Accessories Pack (Crisp Cantaloupe Twine and Cork Flower), Sequins (Non SU!)

Thank you so much for visiting today and I hope you can take some time to check out the wonderful cards the team at Just Add Ink have made and  have a go at the challenge too!

Happy stamping until next time,

  3. Oooh, your card is lovely! So nice to see a card using the cork flowers - I've found them so difficult to use! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink.

    1. Thank you so much Tina! I agree re the cork flowers so I really wanted to give them a go here :-)
