Sale-a-bration cards

I've been playing today, shame I have to go to work tomorrow as I've so much fun playing with Stampin up things over the last few days. I've been playing with the fresh vintage stamp set today and what started of as one card turned into four using the same stamp and colours as I fell in love with the flower stamp, it's so pretty.

Fresh vintage is the stamp set that you can get free until the end of this month by spending £45 or more from the Stampin up catalogue.

These are the first two cards I made, I couldn't decide where to place the sentiment, so I tried two different ways. I've used lucky limade and pretty in pink write markers to ink up the stamp. I've used old olive ink for the border stamp and old olive cardstock. The butterflies are made using the beautiful wings embosslits. The sentiment is from teeny tiny wishes stamp set and punched out using the word window and mounted onto a shape punched out from the modern label punch.

 Again I've used the free SAB stamp set, but this time added some background paper from my stash, some pretty in pink ribbon and the little tags from the tiny tags stamp set which are punched out using the jewelry tag punch. I think this is my favourite card out of this set.

My final card was inspirared by the a Stampin up challenge blog that I've just discovered called Simply Stampin Challenge. This weeks challenge (challenge 43) is a sketch challenge which I've followed for this final card and I'd like to enter into the challenge. It's made using the same SU items I've described above expect for the backing paper, which is non-SU as I'm still building up my SU collection.
I hope you like them.
Thanks for looking,
