Sale-a-Bration last leg: Feeling Sentimental



Cramming now in the last leg of Sale-a-Bration. You have until Friday, 22nd March to earn this gorgeous vintage stamp set free. It’s called Feeling Sentimental and has been one of the most popular choices with my customers during this year’s SAB. You get this penny farthing, a proper British phone box, a big wheel (London Eye?) and the word “Celebrate”, and you can choose wood or clear-mount.

Here I’ve teamed it with a few items from the Spring/Summer catalogue. I brayered the Honeycomb Embossing Folder then smashed it onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock to create this cool background. Basically, the harder you smash, the more ink you get inside the hexagons. Go gently and you’ll get a nice, neat honeycomb pattern, if that’s what you prefer.

I also stamped some splodges in Crumb Cake using French Foliage... this stamp set is worth the money for the splodge stamp alone!

The final embellishment is a small Soda Pop Top. The great news is that these are now back in stock! Here I’ve flattened it in the Big Shot, then stamped and punched an image to fit inside and covered it with Crystal Effects. It’s attached with a dimensional.
