There is no theme for this month's tour, so you'll see a lot of different ideas. Since we're in the middle of Sale-a-bration, I decided to focus on some of the fabulous Sale-a-bration gifts that you can earn for free when you buy $50 or more during during Sale-a-bration, which ends March 31st. There's plenty of time to take advantage of this awesome deal! Make sure to subscribe to my newsletter to receive my weekly "Sale-a-bration Inspiration" emails for even more Sale-a-bration ideas!
This first card is one that I designed for my stamp club. It was a combination of different ideas from other demonstrators. I love finding other uses for punches, so I was thrilled with the concept of using the Banner Punch (Sale-a-bration Gift, #133519) for rays of a sun! And the sentiment in the See Ya Later stamp set (Sale-a-bration Gift, Wood #133533 or Clear #133536) is the perfect thing to coordinate with a Banner Punch sun! It says: "You make me happy with skies are gray."
#133520) to add some texture to the card. The clouds are cut from the Word Bubbles Framelits (#132968).
This is an Easel Card, so you can prop the card open by setting it up against the banner on the inside of the card. I used markers to color just the image from the See Ya Later stamp for the inside banner punch.
I am working on a video tutorial for the Easel Card, so be sure to come back and visit me again to learn how to make this fun card!

My next card is "clean and simple". I made these up to swap at our team meeting earlier this month. I was inspired by several cards I saw on Pinterest. I love the simple collage of stamps from the Petal Parade stamp set (Sale-a-bration gift, Wood #133599 or Clear #133602). I have to admit, the first time I saw this stamp set in the brochure, I thought it was kind of ugly! It's amazing how stamp images come to life when you add COLOR!
I used the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (Sale-a-bration Gift #133520) on this card too. It's so versatile! And I had to add a little punch out from my favorite new punch: Petite Petals Punch (#133322) with some Jumbo Rhinestone bling!
