Feeling Sentimental Sneak Peek

I have for you today a sneak peek at a new Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Feeling Sentimental. Sale-A-Bration begins January 22 and during that time, you will earn a FREE stamp set or other stamping supplies of your choice with every qualifying order of $50 or more. Feeling Sentimental is just one of those sets you may choose FREE.

For this set of three cards, I inked the focal images with Early Espresso and stamped them on Very Vanilla card stock. After carefully trimming them out, I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink and adhered them to a collage background created by stamping En Francais and the images from Clockworks stamp sets. These was then adhered to layers of Fan Fair Designer Series Paper and Early Espresso card stock.

The sentiments are from Itty Bitty Banners and cut out using the Bitty Banners Framelits. Itty Bitty Banners is found in the annual catalog, but is also offered as a FREE stamp set during Sale-A-Bration.

The postcard background for the bicycle card is actually a die cut found in the Fan Fair Designer Series Paper pack. I trimmed it out, inked the edges and stamped a bit more background on it using stamps from the Clockworks set before adhering the bicycle.

The "Hello" tags on the phone booth card were stamped using the Tiny Tags stamp set and punched using the Jewelry Tag punch. This stamp set and technique is such a favorite of my stampers, that I must include it in the design of at least one card for each stamp camp or they are thoroughly disappointed.

The background on the ferris wheel card is stamped using the Netting background stamp and stamps from the Clockworks set.

Close ups of all three cards are here for you.


Stamp Sets:  Feeling Sentimental, Itty Bitty Banners and Tiny Tags, Clockworks for background, En Francaise and Netting background stamps
Card stock: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Fan Fair Designer Series Paper

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Remember you can shop anytime at my Stampin' Up! on-line store anytime at, but if you wish to earn these stamp sets, you will have to wait until January 22.

Have a great day and Happy Stampin'! EdieB

I just stumbled across this card on pinterest. I love the sale a bration set that is so old fashioned I still have mine. Can't seem to part with it. Now I will use if for a father's day card for my husband. Thanks for the great idea.
