ESAD Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop




hi there and welcome to ESAD's Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop. You may have hopped here from Jenny Humphries Blog or if you are starting here then you can hop around all 25 blogs from here. 

I have been playing with some of the SAB sets and love Bloomin' Marvelous as well as the Sycamore Street DSP. With the first card I decided to cut out a section of the DSP and use it as a border on the card and then cut the blue flower out a couple of times and added a couple of rhinestones to bling it up. The second card is using the same idea and when I turned the scrap piece that was left over I found the Razzleberry paper in little half circles so I decided to add that in as well. I also tried the technique of embossing with an area not embossed for the sentiment . 





The next 2 cards are done with Bloomin' Marvelous and using tangerine Tango and Island Indigo. Just some simple stamping on both. The second one was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest by Julie Davison. 





I have other cards I could show you but don't want to overload the hop. I will post them in the coming week for you to see.

...... Simply Speechless Andrea. I can't believe how eye catching your cards are, but the first one where you have cut out the blue circles, looks A.Mazing. Great job Missy :-)
