You won't want to miss these exclusive Sale-a-Bration items: 


 In thinking of what items I would put together for my bundle offer, I wanted to make sure it included a simple but versatile stamp set.  These are the four different cards that I created with the items in my bundle.  As you can see, even though I used the same stamp set, embossing folder and DSP pack, all four cards look totally different.  One of the things that helped was that I used a different color for each card.

Close ups of the Pistachio Pudding and Summer Starfruit cards.  On each card, I made sure to use the matching ink color as the cardstock base for the inked background behind the flower.  This background stamp in the Happy Watercolor stamp set is a great way to still add color without having to color in the flowers with markers.

Crisp Cantaloupe and Pool Party.  Since I was using the in-color marker set, it made it easy to color right on each stamp and color the cardstock edge with the stamped flower image.  This just added a little extra POP to help it stand out on the card.
I hope you have enjoyed the cards created using my happy watercolor bundle.  Now hop on over to stop #3, Jennifer C. with Happy 2 Scrap 4 Life .  I know you can't wait to see her special bundle!!
