Today I am sharing a card I made which uses some product which I have long neglected. I loved the Hearts A Flutter stamp set when I first saw it and had to have it. However, I was kind of lost as to how to use it. So I went to my card sketches board on Pinterest and searched for a sketch that would use some sort of flag. I also wanted to show a sneak peak of a Sale-A-Bration stamp set and I think this sketch works perfectly.
I started by embossing Whisper White card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I punched one edge of a piece of Real Red card using the Scallop Trim Border Punch, embossed it using the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder and attached it to the lower edge of the Whisper White card. I added a strip of Basic Black card which covers the ends of the embossing and helps to make my flags stand out. The striped flag is from the Hearts A Flutter stamp set, stamped onto Whisper White card using Stazon Jet Black ink, cut using the matching Hearts A Flutter Framelit and attached so that it sits about half-way on the Basic Black card. I cut Whisper White card using the framelit from the same set, embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and attached it over the striped flag. The little flag is from a Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Banner Blast. It is stamped onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink, punched using the matching Banner Punch and attached over the top of the other two flags. I wrapped the top edge of the flags using Real Red 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and tied a knot. The whole piece is attached to scored and folded Basic Black card. I stamped the scalloped heart and small heart from the Hearts A Flutter stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink and cut them using the matching Hearts A Flutter framelits. I attached the small heart to the centre of the scalloped heart using dimensionals and then to the card front.
Inside the card I punched and embossed Real Red card, added narrow strip of Basic Black card, attached it to Whisper White card and then to the inside of the Basic Black card. I used dimensionals to add another small heart stamped in Real Red ink onto Whisper White card and cut using the matching framelit.
I really love this colour combination, especially for cards with a “love” theme, don’t you?
Sale-A-Bration starts on the 28th January and ends on the 31st March. For every $90.00 you spend you can select one free product from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue – how fantastic is that? There are some really great products included in Sale-A-Bration this year including a couple of digital ones for those of us/you who are in love with My Digital Studio. How do I know? Well as a demonstrator I started earning these products from the 1st December, so I could have plenty of time to play – I mean work with them – before they become available to you. Another great reason to become a demonstrator. Sale-A-Bration also comes with an additional $50.00 to spend for qualifying Hostesses. If you need more information just contact me and I can give you more details.
In the meantime, if you want any of the products shown in this card, except Banner Blast and the matching Banner Punch, just pop over to my online store, set up your account and get started.
Bye for now,
