Stampin’ Up! So Very Much Love & Affection and End-of-SAB Blog Candy!

Mornin’, y’all – welcome to Friday!  In exactly one week, we’ll be looking square at the end of Sale-A-Bration.

Don’t let it pass you by, okay?  It’s a great time to shop till you drop or join my team!

I’ve got some nice Blog Candy for you  – take a look near the end of the post for details and to see how you can get entered to win!

My card for today uses one of the more simple and straightforward stamp sets in the Sale-A-Bration flyer – one that’s been available from the git-go.  It’s the So Very Much stamp set, and I paired it with the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

My color palette was inspired by the Can You CASE It color challenge this week.

This is a super simple card to put together!

I started with the pretty Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP and SNAILd a piece of the Night of Navy and Crumb Cake design to a mat of Mint Macaron.  For my little banners, I used a piece of Mint Macaron 3/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon and one of Mint Macaron 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon, snipping banner ends and adhering them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then I added a piece of Copper embossed paper from the DSP stack, matted on Mint Macaron and adhered with Liquid Glue.

For my sentiment, I inked the large image from So Very Much in Versamark Ink and stamped it on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up with my Heat Tool.  Then I matted it on Mint Macaron and popped it on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from So Very Much in Night of Navy to the middle of a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I added a Mint Macaron-matted strip of Copper embossed Affectionately Yours DSP.

I SNAILd the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

Across the front of my Crumb Cake Medium Envelope, I added a few flower images from the Love & Affection stamp set in Night of Navy and highlighted them with my White Gel Pen…

…and then I added more of the Copper embossed Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a big, bold sentiment from So Very Much that doesn’t need any help, so I just let it and the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP do all the work for me!  Hope you like! 🙂

I’ve probably mentioned a time or two that Finn’s a bit of a ….goofball!  Heck, I’ve even provided photographic evidence!

Well, I have more.

Seems like he gives me some every day, as long as I’m quick enough with the camera!

When he plays with his many toys – yes, he tends to gather them all together on the living room floor and just moves from one to the other.

Sometimes he doesn’t even get up – just drops one and grabs the next closest one.

Sometimes he does all that on his back.

Warning – graphic photos of puppy pantaloons ahead….
