I'm sad to say that Sale-a-bration is ending soon... in two weeks to be exact. I thought that since Sale-a-bration is ending, it might be nice to showcase some of my favourites for you over the next few days! I am going to be very sad when these fabulous products retire on March 31, 2014. Today's share features not one, but two fab products!!
I really love the decorative dots textured impressions embossing folder - it is very versatile. You can use it for snow, confetti, polka dots... it works for many different occasions too from birthday to baby cards - I just love it! I made this card with the decorative dots in the background - I used the oh-so-adorable 'Life in the Forest' stamp set from the occasions catalogue. I stamped Mr. Fox and coloured him with Cajun Craze... for the trees I stamped the onto a piece of Sweet Sorbet designer series paper (also from Sale-a-bration). I cut the trees out (the technique is called paper-piecing - directions below) and attached them to a piece of Whisper White, which I used the Circles Framelits to cut out, matted onto a piece of Basic Black. I used the super fun 'Just Sayin' stamp set and Word Bubble Framelits for the sentiment.
For my next card I stamped the 'Vivid Vases' image once onto some Sale-a-bration Sweet Sorbet designer series paper and cut out the vases. I then stamped the image again and added the DSP vases to the second stamped image. This technique is called I coloured the flowers in with Stampin' Write markers - Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit and Crisp Cantaloupe. I used the 'Ovals Collection Framelits' to cut out my images, added some 'White Baker's Twine' onto some Basic Black Cardstock and there you have it a strikingly beautiful card.
