Sale-A-Bration Hello, another stamp set that will be saying Goodbye very soon (14th February). I love this set! It comprises delicious fonts, simple greetings, a lovely border image and is multi functional … birthdays, babies or just to say Hello!
I have used the Sale-A-Bration Hello set to create a sweet Welcome Baby card. This was the first version … A simple watercolour wash onto Watercolour Paper using Tangelo Twist and Crushed Curry inks. Dry well with a heat tool (or leave for a few hours) to ensure it is really dry before embossing. I then stamped the “hello” and the two little sun images with Versamark ink and embossed with White Embossing Powder. I also clear embossed the “little sunshine” greeting on the Crushed Curry banner to give it extra oomph! The addition of the cute little stripey lines (also from the Hello stamp set) in Tangelo Twist and the banner shapes finish off the card. Don’t you love the pop of the Mint Macaron Designer Series Paper? This is from the Pretty Petals Paper Stack.
My second card is very similar with just a few subtle differences! It is a little bolder … the watercolour background is a little more intense, and to make the “Hello” really pop, I white embossed it onto a circle of Mint Macaron cardstock. I stamped the little sun shapes with Crushed Curry ink and fussy cut them. They are attached with glue dots … I love how Glue Dots give just a hint of dimension.
So which is your favourite? If you love this set and want to grab it before it is gone, you can get it FOR FREE with a purchase of $90 from either of the Occasions 2016 catalogue or the 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue.
