Bye-bye Sale-A-Bration!

This is the last day of Sale-A-Bration!  This terrific sale ends at Midnight Mountain Time – but don't wait too late!  The online ordering system could potentially get bogged down towards the end.

I want to leave you with my last Sale-A-Bration project using some of the yummy designer paper found in the Sycamore Street paper pack and a pretty Rich Razzleberry button from the Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack.  I love how this page turned out and plan to use it for photos of my little granddaughter Quinn.  She brings such sunshine into my life!

Here's a close-up of the "flower garden".  I've used the Blossom Punch for the left and right flowers and the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch for the center.  The leaves are created with the Blossom Petals Builder Punch.  I just ran my Bone Folder down the center and popped them up a little.  Centers are created with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch and the 3/4" Circle Punch with Daffodil Delight card stock.  The two larger flowers have Silver Basics Designer Buttons and Rich Razzleberry Ribbon through the centers, while the smaller uses the Sale-A-Bration button with White Baker's Twine tied in a pretty bow.  And of course I had to use my favorite scrapbooking tool – the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die – to create the white rick-rack.

The sun is created with the Daydream Medallions stamp set, stamped tone-on-tone with Daffodil Delight and cut out with the Floral Frames Framelits and the Big Shot.  Love the coordination of these two products!  Click HERE to see some other projects using this versatile stamp set and framelits.  The center is a fun sentiment from Pursuit of Happiness stamped in Basic Gray ink and punched out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.

Feeling Sentimental and Watercoloring

Today I'd like to show you a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that I'm just in love with!  Feeling Sentimental can be yours FREE with any $50 purchase during Sale-A-bration (which ends March 22nd).  This beautiful set comes with three main images and the "Celebrate" sentiment.  I just love how detailed the stamps are and how perfectly they stamp!

Another reason for my posting this particular card is that I wanted to let you know of the different types of card stock and how I like to use them.  Watercoloring is one of my most favorite techniques.  I like using the Stampin' Up! Aqua Painters.  They come with two to a package – there's one with a small tip and one with a larger tip, depending on how you're using them.  Simply fill up the barrel with water – no need for a brush!  In order for your watercoloring to turn out just the way you want, remember to choose the right kind of card stock.

  • Watercolor Paper is the most ideal for watercoloring.  The paper absorbs water to keep it flat for a high-quality finished look.  When you're using small pieces of this paper or making only a couple of cards, this is the best choice.  However, for mass-produced cards or larger pieces, it can be a bit more costly.
  • Another good choice for watercoloring is our Naturals Ivory and Naturals White card stock.  These card stocks are nice and heavy and absorb the water well.  You'll love using this card stock for your watercolored images.
  • While our Whisper White and Very Vanilla card stocks are tops in their field, they are not good choices for watercolor.  These sleek card stocks were designed to take a perfect stamped image, but they do not absorb the water like the other two card stocks.  Purchase these wonderful products just for stamping and not for watercoloring.

For this card, I used the Aqua Painter to pick up ink from my Crumb Cake stamp pad and applied it around the image to create grounding and aging – nice for a vintage look. 

THINGS YOU'LL NEED:
Item No. 129627 Feeling Sentimental wood – FREE with $50 order during Sale-A-Bration OR
Item No. 129630 Feeling Sentimental clear – FREE with $50 order during Sale-A-Bration
Item No. 129312 Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack $6.95
Item No. 129287 Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon $6.95
Item No. 119744 Regals Designer Buttons (Cajun Craze) $8.95
