Welcome to our August Creative Card-iology Team Blog Hop! Our blogs are again featuring Sale-A-Bration items that customers can receive free with $50 or $100 orders. Additional items have been added to the free products, and my project features several of these free items available through the end of August.
Every month my Stampin’ Up! team leader gives us a creative challenge and a business challenge that we can respond to in our facebook group. This month our creative challenge is to create a project based on a card sketch/layout. I decided to use this layout as inspiration for my blog project. The Sale-A-Bration items I’ve used are the Aspen Trees Dies, the Timber Embossing Folder and the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper, along with the Perched in a Tree stamp set. I love the sentiments and images in this set, and I think it pairs beautifully with the Rings of Love DSP!
I rotated the sketch layout from horizontal to vertical for my card and chose to use Soft Suede as my card base. I used Basic White, Night of Navy and both sides of the bird patterned paper from the Rings of Love DSP collection for my 5 rectangle pieces for the layout. I stamped the chosen sentiment in Saddle Brown Stazon ink at the top of the Basic White rectangle, and also stamped the bird image in the Saddle Brown Stazon on another piece of Basic White. Blender pens and Night of Navy and Crushed Curry ink were used to color the stamped bird image.
The Night of Navy rectangle pieces were embossed with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. For some added embellishments, I wrapped Gold Shimmer ribbon around the bottom of the Basic White rectangle piece and tied a faux bow as well. Pale Papaya Opal Rounds from the 2021-2023 Opal Rounds embellishment collection completed my card.
