Still Celebrating Sale-a-Bration!

I'm still a little Punchy over  Stampin' up!'s Sale-a-Bration.   Thanks for joining me again today.  You give me a chance to showcase some Stampin' up! basics. I love showing you projects with SIMPLE steps that you can duplicate quickly.

Again I chose to take a challenge.  Today, it's from the Paper Players PP134  
By taking these challenges, I remind myself over and over, that you can CREATE easily,

This was my process.
  1. I started with 1/2 sheet of Night of Navy.  Almost like Black, goes with anything.
  2. Next a 1/4 sheet layer of Whisper White. I left it flat with no dry embossing because I didn't want any competition with the fancy flower.
  3. Punch a hole with the  2-1/2 Inch Circle Punch 120906
  4. Quint-Essential Flower Wood-Mount Stamp Set 126790  ($8.95) or FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration  I stamped it 4 times with 4 different colors.  Today, I used Tangerine Tango, Gumball Green, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo.
  5. Here come the punches.  I punched each color with a different punch.  
    2-3/8 Inch Scallop Circle Punch 118874 1-3/4 Inch Scallop Circle Punch 1198541 Inch Circle Punch 119868 ,   3/4 Inch Circle Punch 119873
  6. When I chose my added strip of color...I just made it easy and chose a color I already used in the flower,  Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper 126902
  7. Finishing touches:   Stampin' Dimensionals 104430,   Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents 119246

    My final step was to pick a verse from Fabulous Phrases 117002
    Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!

    There is always something to Celebrate! at my house. So that was the sentiment I chose.
    Go ahead!  Make a Simple Card today.  You will feel great when you are finished and you will make someones day when you put it in the mail.  It's a WIN WIN!

    Make it a CREATIVE day!
