These are the projects I had available at my March Stamp Classes .. four cards featuring Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, and one Easter card. We had such a great time at both classes ... I've got the BEST customers/friends anyone could ask for!

This first card was designed with the help of SCS Sketch Challenge 166 (SC166). The chick/egg image from A Good Egg stamp set was stamped four times; once on Whisper White, once on So Saffron, and twice on the Certainly Celery polka dot from Spring Fling DP. There is paper piercing horizontally across the top and bottom border of the Pretty In Pink CS base. Inspired by speedystamper's card HERE.
Stamps: A Good Egg
Paper: Spring Fling DP, Pretty In Pink, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Basic Black Classic Ink Pad, Pumpkin Pie Marker for chick’s nose
Embellishments: Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon, So Saffron or Certainly Celery Buttons
Tools: Paper Snips, Paper Piercing Tool/Mat/Template
Supplies: Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots

This next card is a case of one of my own designs found HERE using SAB Friendship Blooms. I simply changed the colors to Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, and Real Red.
Stamps: Friendship Blooms (SAB)
Paper: Soft Sky and Blue Bayou Prints DP, Whisper White, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, and Real Red CS
Ink: Real Red, Blue Bayou Classic Ink Pads
Embellishments: Blue Bayou Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Real Red Brads, Adhesive Rhinestone (non-SU)
Tools: Boho Blossoms Punch
Supplies: Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, Pop-Up Glue Dots


This next card uses SAB Birthday Whimsy and is cased from Jean Stayton's original HERE. Jean's new blog is Bear Hugs and Inky Paws. I love the way Jean used a portion of the Scallop Punch for the icing on the cake, along with the Trio Flower Punch and Brad. The White Gel Pen was used to add dots to each scallop, and Diamond Stickles (non-SU) were used on the birthday candles.

Love them all, Nancy! Thanks for sharing, especially, your (and Jean's) Birthday Whimsy card - so much imagination. That scallop punch is one of SU!'s best "tools" - it's amazing what everyone comes up with for it.
