Sale-a-Bration Notecards & Tote

I made some Sale-a-Bration notecards for a recent blog hop in hopes of using them for Stamp Club.   Although I love a clean card, the project felt a little too plain.  I thought a couple cards, highlighting two SAB sets, and a tote would be fun.  Unfortunately this threw my original cards out of the running for Club, as there wasn't enough patterned paper for both them and the tote.

And don't forget to dress up a coordinating envelope!

Stamps: What I Love; Paper: So Saffron, Whisper White; Ink: So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Memento Tuxedo Black, Basic Black marker.

I traded in my original design with Flowering Fields for the card design by LeeAnn Greff.  This design is a great way to utilize smaller pieces of patterned paper while still getting the same feel for the paper and stamp set coordination.

Stamps: Flowering Fields, What I Love; Paper: Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Whisper White, Wildflower Fields DSP; Ink: Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Old Olive, Basic Black Archival; Accessories: Banner punch, Aquapainter.

I used Lou Kitzelman's instructions for the cute tote using the Gift Bag Punch Board.

Stamps: Flowering Fields, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper: Hello Honey, Wildflower Fields DSP; Ink: Hello Honey, Old Olive, Basic Black; Accessories: White baker's twine, Brads, 1/8" Circle punch, 2" Circle punch, Gift Bag Punch Board, Circle Collection framelits, Big Shot.

Such a gorgeous set. So glad my instructions for the tote helped. I'll have to make some more myself after seeing how beautiful yours is!
