Exclusive Sale-A-Bration Stamp – Lots of Lavender

Today, I wanted to share with you a thank you card that I created using the Lots of Lavender exclusive stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration brochure and the Petal Palette stamp set from the new Occasions Catalog.

I believe these stamp sets pair together perfectly!

Lots of Lavender Thank You card featuring Exclusive Sale-A-Bration Lots of Lavender stamp set and Petal Palette from the 2018 Occasions Catalog. For details and instructions, click through to my blog at CrackedPotStamper.com #crackedpotstamper #handmade #loveitliveitshareit #lovewhatido #cardmaking #sab

Did you know that lavender symbolizes grace and calmness?

Send someone a beautiful card that reminds them of its scent and their own qualities.

Paper: Berry Burst, Thick Whisper White

Ink: Tranquil Tide, Blushing Bride

Accessories: Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Layering Circles Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Big Shot

It’s All in the Details: I love texture and layers. I like to add a pop of color behind the sentiment because I think it adds a little pizzazz!

One of the reasons this image was chosen is because of the versatility but also because I love the layer of vellum and it’s ability to tone down the images in the background designer series paper.

It is amazing what a layer of translucent vellum can do for a card, it adds a touch of softness while simultaneously allowing the focal point to take center stage.

Bravo Vellum Cardstock! Bravo!

I would encourage you to try this on your next card and see what a difference it makes.
