Choose Happiness

These is one of the Make-n-Take cards that were featured last month at the Gathering Inkspiration Stamp Studio Sale-a-Bration Celebration.

There were 3 ways to qualify for this event (you could only EARN your way in!):

1 - Host a Sale-a-Bration Private Class (Hostesses earned $25 more for FREE with a min $250 in sales)

2 - Purchase the Starter Kit (and Get 2 FREE Sale-a-Bration choices or an Occasions Catalog Project Kit!) 

3 - Spend at least $150 during the months of Sale-a-Bration (January-March)

We had so much fun at the event....

Snacks & Treats, specials, BOGO,  stamping,
make-n-takes,  gifts,  games (including BINGO!), prizes and  more!

I think everyone felt very spoiled!!  
And the entire event was FREE to attend!!

Ok, so here's the card.....

We start our card with a Night of Navy Card base, then add a layer of Baked Brown Sugar card stock, followed by a layer of Very Vanilla card stock.  We rounded the corners of our card stock with the Project Life Corner Rounder Punch.

Project Life Corner Rounder Punch  135346  $7.95

Then, we start stamping....

-the border (that the bird is standing on) and the water splotches in Crumb Cake ink
-the bird in Night of Navy ink
-the leaves and sentiment in Black Memento ink

 We also used our Aquapainter to fill in the leaves with Old Olive ink.  Just fill the resevoir of the Aquapainter with alcohol or water, then draw up some of the Old Olive ink from the inside of the stamp pad (by squeezing the ink pad together before you open it). 

These stamps can be found in the following stamp sets:

Next, we added a strip of Burlap Ribbon that was die-cut with the Large Scallop Edgelit (this item can be found on the retiring list) and attached our sentiment (and the burlap ribbon) to the card with Glue Dots.

Finally, we added Very Vintage Button tied with a Linen Thread bow.
