Welcome to the next pit-stop on the SAB Blog Hop

Did you not love Bekka's samples? I know I did!

Here are my two wonderful little samples using the vintage labels SAB set. I love this set very much. So many uses, and I have loads of ideas to use these frames for scrapbook pages.

But, for this road-trip, I have some wonderful cards to show you.

The first is using some bright colours - not the normal for me.

Summer Sun base, with turquoise and cameo coral stripes, and finally some of the delicious summer sun patterned paper from the Pink Flamingo DSP collection.

The circular label is stamped in tempting turquoise onto a large metal rimmed tag, and a 1" circle of cameo coral is mounted onto with pop dots. The greeting is stamped in turquoise, as is the little flourish above. I got the flourish by colouring one of the "points" from the circular label punch with a turquoise marker, then stamping onto the top of the cameo coral circle.

This second SAB card is done with a Kraft base, and Not Quite Navy and Old Olive cut out in the shape of the top-note die. While I do not have this die, I do have a PDF of the shape that I print out onto my cardstock, then cut out by hand. So cards made with this are special given the time involved. Did some paperpiercing along the edge of the old olive stripe to give it some extra dimension.



The curly square label from the vintage labels set is stamped in Real Red on Whisper White and cut out by hand. The For You greeting from the set is stamped with the Whisper White craft ink onto the red cardstock, then punched out with the word window punch. I think next time I will emboss the greeting with white embossing powder. Got to add that to my next order now!

Finished it off with one of the yummy crochet flowers and a red rhinestone brad.

I hope you have enjoyed this pit-stop on your SAB blog hop. Next up is Abi - so get ready to feast your eyes on some more wonderful creations!

Cheers,
Karin Fidler
