We have a special hop for you today! The 2019 Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team have created projects using various stamp sets from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.
Sale-A-Bration pre-earn is finally here from 3 December 2019 to 2 January 2020! This means that demonstrators can earn items in the Sale-A-Bration Shop offering early. For every $90 AUD/$110 NZD or $180 AUD/$220 NZD you spend, you choose a free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure that matches the level you spent. Demonstrators can even use the pre-order of the January–June mini catalogue and purchase items from that catalogue or any other current catalogue, and earn free Sale-A-Bration products! If you aren’t a demonstrator yet, this is a great sneak peek to see what is in store for Sale-A-Bration beginning 3 January 2020!
The card I created is made with the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set. Before designing my card, I googled waterlilies to get some ideas on colours and how I would use this stamp set. My initial thought was to use the waterlily stamp and create a flowery/leafy creation, but instead I went with a realistic waterlily pond card.
I started with some Balmy Blue Ink and a dauber. I daubed until I had a background that I was happy with and that would give my waterlilies and lily pads a watery base. On my google search, I found that waterlilies can be many colours, so I went with a deep red. I stamped the outline of the waterlily with Black Memento Ink and coloured the petals with Cherry Cobbler Blends. To give depth and definition to the flower, I added shadows to the centre of the waterlilies with my Smoky Slate Blends. The leaves have been coloured lightly with Mint Macaron Blends.
One of the best things about this stamp set is that it has reversible stamps! You might be wondering what that is, so I will explain how I used them on this card. Once you’ve stamped your outline of your image and clean it off, you can turn the stamp over on your block and it will stamp the solid image. Each of the stamp set images have the reversible solid stamp, so if you’re not a colourer like me, then you can let the stamp do all the work! I think this card is suited more for the avid crafter with all the colouring, daubing and fussy cutting. But you can simplify this card using the reversible stamp to colour the image and the matching dies that are also available during the Sale-A-Bration period.
I used the reversible stamp on each of my lily pads to give them Mossy Meadow centres. Because I wanted a deeper colour for them, I inked up the image and stamped it three times. It then gave me a variance in the ink and a shadowy look on the pads.
I then added a sentiment from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set as I felt it matched my card and a single rhinestone from Noble Peacock Rhinestones.
Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration pre-order for demonstrators starts today (3rd December). This is an exclusive benefit for demonstrators to get your hands on these amazing products early. For your customers and friends, they will be able to order from 3rd January.
