Weekly Deals - Just For You!

Today's Weekly Deals project is a tag using the 2014-16 In-Color Markers.  I used the markers to quickly color the small elements on the tag. I have found when using a stamp that requires quite a bit of coverage such as the sentiment on this card, it is best to use the ink pad, rather than the markers, for optimal coverage. The markers work great to stamp less bold objects (unless you are going for a washed out or textured looking inking).  

Once I completed the stamping I went over all the elements with my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush pen from the Occasions Catalog... I am so loving that thing!  Check out Shack Scraps on facebook where I shared a cool tip I learned as well as a Stampin' Up! video that details that very tip.

Finally, I hung a couple of the Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons from the tag top so they would dangle down over the front of the tag. I finished the flower centers with Jewel Basic Pearls and sponged the Very Vanilla tag with a bit of Crumb Cake ink to match the Crumb Cake cardstock tag in the back. I love the look of layered tags, don't you!

Without further ado, here are the weekly deals for this week:

Don't forget, for every $50 you spend, you get FREE Sale-A-Bration items!  That stamp set used in the tag was a Sale-A-Bration set called Botanicals For You. There are some really amazing stamps in the Sale-A-Bration brochure... go take a look!
