Welcome to my blog. The 2019 Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design are back with a hop featuring cards from the Sale-A-Bration Second Release Brochure and Sale-A-Bration Coordination Promotion. The products I’ve used on my cards are from both of these promotions. These products are available to demonstrators and customers for only a short time. So be quick to order before 31st March so you don’t miss out!
My cards are featuring gorgeous flowers and designer series paper from the Second Release Sale-A-Bration Promotion. This bundle is called Painted Seasons Bundle and can be yours in Australia by spending $180. Of course I was beside myself receiving another flower-y stamp set. I can never have enough flower stamp sets. The colour scheme for my cards was inspired from the papers from Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper.
I gave the card base on my first card a bit of a watercoloured background. I applied a very watered down Call Me Clover wash over my Watercolor Paper and waited for it to dry. I then moved on to stamp my flowers from the Painted Seasons Stamp Set in Mango Melody Ink. To give definition and depth to my flowers, I took my Journalling Pen and went to town around the centre of the flowers and to each petal. After each flower was cut out, I stamped some leaves from the stamp set in Call Me Clover and Soft Sea Foam Inks.
Once the card base was dry, I stamped the ink splatter type stamp on to my watercoloured background with Black Stazon Ink. Not going to lie, I was a little hesitant to do this in case the black ink bled, but it all turned out ok…. I then added some strips of Call Me Clover and Soft Sea Foam Cardstock under my sentiment to tie all of my colours together.
One of the fabulous products from the Sale-A-Bration Coordination Promotion I’ve used on this card is the matching die set to Painted Seasons. These dies are called Four Seasons Framelits Dies and are a combination of flowers and leaves. I actually couldn’t believe how many dies there are in this set.
For my second card, I started with this amazing graphic DSP matted with Call Me Clover Cardstock. As with my previous card, I used the same flowers and leaves, but instead of fussy cutting them, I ran them through the bigshot with these dies. The sentiment I’ve used on my cards is from All That You Are Stamp Set.
For my layering under the sentiment, I added a strip of Call Me Clover Cardstock and some White Burlap Ribbon and some Braided Linen Trim.
