I have to confess that originally I made this card using Pool Party instead of Coastal Cabana, but fortunately there was enough time to remake the card. The brighter colour really makes everything pop on this version too. I LOVE Coastal Cabana and was very pleased that it made a return to our colour range. This sentiment is great as it allows you to colour in 'happy' and stamp a second time on a colour to cut the banner as another highlight.
The sweet little flowers remind me a little of the pansies in my garden, and I do think they add a nice touch beside the sentiment. That sentiment is from a SALE-A-Bration stamp set, Part Of My Story. These are the ones you can pick, once your order reaches $90, and you pay nothing extra for it. Don't let SALE-A-Bration slip by without making at least one $90 order for a special stamp set, patterned paper or ribbon. I've included the Amazing Life stamp set, and these Rectangle Stitched dies in the supply list at the end, as I'd be surprised if they are not the hottest bundle in the Occasions catalogue. At $85.50, that's a 10% saving off both, you only need to add a pack of dimensionals and you qualify for a SALE-A-Bration pick.
This is another version I have made, same colours and still stamps from Amazing Life. These 2 cards are part of my 'Caring & Sharing' February class, and the Melon Mambo version is a little easier for those lacking the confidence to die cut the front of the card with the NEW Stitched Rectangles before adhering the white card behind. Check my Class Schedule here.
So the Melon Mambo card is a little bit beyond #simplestamping, perfect for the casual stampers who mostly come to my classes. I do have another class for those just embarking on their crafting journey, or maybe you'd like to give it a go on your own. Supplies for these projects are available in my online shop. If you need more information on what I used, please get in touch and I will let you know in detail.
