Over the next few days I am going to be showing you some cards that I have created using Stamp Sets you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration…

Not the stamp sets that are exclusive to Sale-a-bration, but those stamp sets that are listed on the back cover of the Sale-a-bration Catalog –  they are on pg 11 and there are 69 sets to choose from on that list!

Yes, you can choose from this list of sets for your FREE stamps – how cool is that?! Click HERE to find out more about Sale-a-bration!

The set I am using today is Happy Together and is a set of 5 featuring some very cute birds – a very versatile set as you can use it for any occasion – aren’t they cute?

My card is clean and simple and uses the colors Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and Whisper White…I stamped my Baby Birds in Espresso ink and colored them in – what I love is that these three baby birds are featured on one stamp making it quick and easy to make cards using it…

I stamped and colored Mama Bird and then used my 1 3/8″ Circle Punch to punch her out and added her to my strip using Dimensionals to make her a feature.

The ‘happy together’ sentiment is from this set but you could easily use a birthday or thank you stamp instead – I punched it out and layered it using two Oval Punches and added it to my card base, again using Dimensionals…

To carry on the cutesy theme I added a couple of elements – a polka dotted background using my Big Shot and Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder

And the scalloped edges each side of my strip are so easy to create using the Scallop Edge Border Punchhow did I get the perfect fit between the scalloped edges for my white cardstock strip?

Simple – let me show you how…shape one edge using your border punch…

And then lay on your cardstock strip – use a ruler to measure 1/2″ down from the bottom edge of your strip and make a pencil mark…

Use your paper trimmer to cut away the piece below your paper mark and then shape this bottom edge using your border punch…and you are done!

Sooo this cute stamp set Happy Thoughts is just one of the sets you can get for FREE right now with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration – here are the images in that CUTE stamp set…

I’ll be showcasing another set that you can get for free tomorrow so come back and see me!
