SUOC64 – Sale-a-bration fun!

Oh what fun…it is time to celebrate Sale-a-bration (SAB) over at SUO Challenges this week!  Frankly, what is not to celebrate!!  Free products just for getting what you were already going to purchase.  Yea!!

SUOC64, SAB Class - SAB FunSo I had a bit of a dilemma for today’s post.  Two cards!  Which one to choose for the SUO Challenges site??!!  I went with the one that we made at my SAB class last week but will show you the other one, of course.  Something about this card really spoke to me and my stampers loved it too.  The stamp set, Vintage Verses, is one that can stand alone with only a small amount of extra or one that can be all “fancied up” (see the design team’s cards at the challenge site!).  I love that kind of flexibility!  I dyed on of the 5/8″ Flower Trim flowers with Midnight Muse ink and added it right on top of the sentiment (also stamped with Midnight Muse).  A Basic Pearl called out to be used and I love it here.  I thought it needed a little extra something, so I pulled out my new Stampin’ Distess Tool to distress the edges of the top layer.  Easy, fast and fabulous distressing!  Love this new tool!  A couple of my stampers were planning to use this as a Valentine’s card but the sentiment is perfect for many things.  Did I mention it is free??  So much to love with SAB!

SUOC64 - SAB 2Now I created another card using basically the same idea but I added a little bit of the lace from the Artisan Embellishments Kit under the flower.  Oh how I love this lace!!  It adds another special touch with no extra work!

So I’m curious which version you like better.  To make it more fun, I’ll offer a little blog candy.  Let me know which you prefer and I will randomly choose someone to receive the most popular version.  Make sure you tell me your favorite and why in a comment to this post.  I’ll chose from everyone who comments on Saturday, Feb. 16th and then send it right out to the winner.

I know I have been missing a bit over the last few weeks and I appreciate your patience with me.  I have been trying to recharge the creative batteries a bit.  Working on lots of ideas and I look forward to showing you those over the next few months.  In the mean time, please know how grateful I am that you spend a part of your day with me!

I’ll be back tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.  Now hop right over to the SUO Challenges site and you will be AMAZED at what you see.  Can’t wait to see what you share from you SAB projects!

Both cards are fantastic, Jennifer! The distressing adds such nice interest to the top card and that lace (oh, be still my heart, I love it so…) under the flower on the 2nd card dresses it up to beautifully. However, I have to pick the first card as my favorite, with your use of Crumb Cake and blue ink (great combo) and the sweet little blue flower popped up over the sentiment.

I like the first card with the blue flower. Because there isn’t alot on the card, I feel that you are drawn to the sentiment and that makes it more powerful. Plus the colors are warmer. I think the lace gets lost on the 2d card because it is white on white. I just love your style and have copied several things!
