Flowering bush - two cool 

I CASEd this card from Peggy Tassler's card that I featured on last week's Sunday Showcase.  It's a fun combination of the elements from the Banner Blast Sale-A-Bration set.  I'm letting my class attendees choose which color combination they want to create at tonight's class. 

Flowering bush - cantaloupe 

Originally CASEd from Nicole Blalock at My Stampin' Project.

Background Basics—I started with a 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White foundation and stamped the foliage image from Petal Parade across the top in Pistachio Pudding.  Don't adhere it to the card until after it's all decorated.

Next, I texture embossed a 4" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and adhered that to the foundation.  The good news is that this Sale-A-Bration folder will be in the upcoming Annual Catalog—woot!

Flowering bush - cantaloupe 2 

Bitty Flowers—The teeny flower from the Banner Blast set conveniently coordinates with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack…how easy!  I stamped several flowers in Crisp Cantaloupe and several in Summer Starfruit, then adhered them randomly with Multipurpose Glue.

Banners Trio—I stamped three Banner Blast flags, in Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit, and punched them with the Sale-A-Bration Banner Punch.  Can you believe that I adhered those babies directly to the background without popping them up with Dimensionals?  I know!!!  So unlike me!  There's not a Dimensional in sight on this one!  By the way, the Banner Punch is sticking around after Sale-A-Bration, too!  Yay!

Twine Accent—I finished the front décor by wrapping a piece of Summer Starfruit Twine, from the Sale-A-Bration Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack, around the background and tying in a knot.  Now the foundation is ready to adhere to the Crisp Cantaloupe card base.

Flowering bush - cabana 

For the second of my two cool cards, I tried a different color combo: Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana and Wisteria Wonder.  OOohhhh!  This one features all of my favorite colors in soft shades! Love it!

Flowering bush - cabana 2 

There's Coastal Cabana Twine in the Accessory Pack, so that worked out perfectly with my new combination.
