Oh, Happy Day!! 2013 Sale-A-Bration is Near!
I wanted to share with you a card that I designed using the bright colors from this week’s DD34Dynamic Duos and the FM91 Sketch from the Friday Mashup!
Again, if you have not had the time to visit their sites yet, you are in for a treat! The Design Team's ideas are wonderful as well as all of the other entries - so much talent!!
This card incorporates one of the new Sale-A-Bration (SAB) sets that will be available after January 22nd along with some of the new SAB Designer Paper and Ribbon- stay tuned for more details in January regarding how you can earn these items free!
To create this card:
Use Stampin’ Write markers in Island Indigo and Melon Mambo to color the leaves and flowers from Bloomin’ Marvelous and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock to create your focal image.
"Stamp off" a few of the images to leave a lighter impression and ink the sentiment stamp the Stampin' Write Island Indigo marker as well :-)
When you have the desired effect with the flowers and leaves, use a Sponge Dauber to lightly sponge Island Indigo around the edges.
Mount the focal image onto Island Indigo and again onto Melon Mambo (leaving a bit of Melon Mambo at the bottom for the Finishing Touches Edgelit™ border and the new 1/4" Island Indigo Satin Ribbon).
Emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Big Shot™ with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and adhere this background to a layer of Island Indigo and Melon Mambo.
Create the banner using DSP mounted onto Melon Mambo cardstock - use a 1” Square Punch to create the banner “points” .
Assemble the card per the sketch- add the banner, mount the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhere the butterflies, leaves and rolled flowers (tutorial here) with Mini Glue Dots and finally the pearls to finish off the card.
