ESAD Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

It is that exciting time in the Stampin' Up! year when everyone can earn a range of products for FREE!  That is right, its Sale-A-Bration (SAB) time again, and that means another ESAD Blog Hop.  You may be starting with my blog, or you may have hopped on over from visiting Cristie's Creative Corner.

 I wanted to make a project with the Pretty Petites and matching Petite Curly Label punch.  I love this set, and not just because I love any stamp set that comes with a punch lol.  I think it is just the right size for gift cards, so I made a set of cards and cute little matching box.  

Here are all five cards, on which I have used the latest In-Colours, and layered the Pretty Petites with Daydream Medallions and the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch available in the Holiday Catalogue.  I love how well these layer together to draw your eye to the centre of the card.  These little cards are also great because  at 3" x 3" they fit perfectly inside the mini square envelopes from Stampin' Up!

For this card I used the Yum stamp and paired Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit, this would be perfect attached to a fruit basket, box of chocolates or home made treats.  

Made with Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green this little cutie is clearly ready to pass birthday wishes to someone special.
 Summer Starfruit and Primrose Petal are a cute little combo on this card, great for when words either aren't enough or aren't needed at all.

This little card could be used for a birthday or attached to a gift for any occasion, this little card is made using Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple.  

Finally a little 'hello' card when there isn't an occasion  but you want to remind someone you care, I chose a combination of Primrose Petal and Midnight Muse for this one so it could go to a female or male friend.

While I have only used 5 of the stamps, there are actually 8 in the set, yours free with any $100 purchase of current Stampin' Up! products, how great is that!  I hope you have enjoyed seeing my little set of cards, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the ESAD blog hop, the next stop is over at Bethinking where Beth has some more SAB products to show you.
