Nacho Average Blog Hop: Sale-a-Bration

Heyyy Nacho fans!  Welcome to the first ever Nacho Average Blog Hop, which is preempting this week's Friday Flashback.  Today the Nachos are sharing projects made with Sale-a-Bration items, and my stamp set is What I Love.  Let's check it out shall we?


I'm starting off with a one-layer CAS card.  The flowers are stamped in Pool Party and Island Indigo, and the leaves are Pear Pizzazz (I mentioned earlier this week that I was having a Pear Pizzazz-y week).  I was going to do the sentiment in Island Indigo but that just seemed like too much blue, so I used Calypso Coral instead.  I like the little pop of warm coral.


Next up is something a little more involved, but again with the Pear Pizzazz :)  How do you like Pear Pizzazz paired with Rose Red and Blackberry Bliss?  I so just tried to write "peared with".  The greeting is from another SAB set called Perfect Pairings.


And my last card for today is also purple but I used Mint Macaron instead of Pear Pizzazz.  Oops.  How do you like that Perfectly Artistic DSP?  Also a Sale-a-Bration freebie :)  Actually the greeting stamp set was a freebie too, I got in some stuff on Wednesday and that stamp set was put in my box by accident (I hadn't ordered it).  So I called SU! and they told me to keep it, which is awesome because I was thinking about ordering it anyway.  SU! is psychic!

You might recognize this as an old Nacho sketch challenge, it was one of my favorites.  I also used this week's Cupcake Inspirations color challenge for the last card:


SU! retired so many of the purples a few years ago that I had to bring Orchid Opulence out of retirement to make my card, none of the current purples look anything like the lilac in the challenge graphic.

This is a blog hop, so next up is Heather!
