Soft & Sweet Sale-a-bration Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper

Have you seen it? The Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper from our Sale-a-bration selection? If you love soft and lovely colors that make you think spring, you’re going to want to stock up on this paper!

And the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 162977) has wonderful little birds on one side too, with a more neutral or floral pattern on the back. Team it up with your favorite sentiment set that you need for the occasion and you’ll be set to create all kinds of products. I can’t wait to use the little flowers for Easter projects.

Check out these cards using this wonderful Designer Series Paper. This first card uses a 2 3/8″ Circle Punch (161354) to capture this little image

of the sweet little bird. I love the soft look of the Basic White background that has been embossed using the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder (161473). A layer of Vellum Cardstock (101856) and vegetation from the Delicate Forest Dies (162679) done in Garden Green and Soft Sea Foam pull the colors out of the Designer Series Paper onto the card front. And of course a bit of Gold & Silver 1/8″ Trim Combo Pack (Online Exclusive 161633) adds a bit of shine. And how about this next card that uses the same sheet of images along with two more patterns to create this lovely card?

I just love the way the paper works together pulling out the colors from the floral sheet. And for this card the sentiment from the Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set (162882) has been punched out with it’s coordinating punch. (Remember if one of our items in a bundle is on back order you can order the items individually for now.). A bit of our Linen Thread (104199) adds some texture. And speaking of texture, you’re going to love our 2023-2025 In Color Jute Trim (161637) used for this next card.

Simple strips of 1″ Designer Series Paper create the background for this lovely sentiment from the Go To Greetings Stamp set (158763) that has been cut out using our Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) and layered on our Boho Blue. This card is a wonderful way to use scraps up.

Like the paper as much as I do? If so you’ll want to get yours before Sale-a-bration ends or it’s gone.

Sale-a-bration’s Watercolor Melon

While it is a rainy winter day here in Georgia there is a taste of spring in the air so I thought I’d share a fun set that will make us all think of those warm summer days that aren’t far off.

Watercolor Melon Stamp Set (Sale-a-bration 162962) is a photopolymer stamp set that makes the two step a breeze. The images have a fun watercolor look giving you a built in shading that makes the melon look real too.

Check out these cards to see what I mean. this first card uses simple stamping to create a fun card. Done in Sweet Sorbet and Garden Green it uses a fun angle for the sentiment.

And while this set is a sentiment set it makes it great for choosing a stamp set like the Perennial Postage Stamp set (162598) to team it up with. And this next card uses the same sweet Sweet Sorbet 1/4″ Ribbon (162558) for a little pop of texture on the watermelon that has been punched out using the Modern Oval Punch (162234)

which makes popping it up like it is on this card a snap! This next card teams up these fun images with the Basic 3D Embossing Folders (Online Exclusives 1611598) for some texture in the background and the Meandering Meadow Designer Series Paper (Online Exclusives 162735).

A pop of shine has been added with the Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels (158130). You’ll love how these rhinestones pick up the colors around them. And our last card uses a fun gingham check in Blueberry Bushel from the Glorious Gingham 6×6 Designer Series Paper (163170) for a summer time feel.

The watermelon uses a simple technique called shadow stamping. The melon was first stamped in Lemon Lime Twist Classic Ink and then again in Garden Green Classic Ink. The second color is just slightly lower than the first image allowing you to see both colors. And the vines use the stamping off method to create two different shades of the Garden Green. Both area great techniques that allow you to use stretch your stamping skills and supplies!

The crib has been fussy cut and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. while the sentiment has been die cut using our Perennial Postage Dies (162607). A bit of color has been added to the texture with our Blending Brushes (153611) and a bit of shimmer with the Iridescent Foil Gems (162842).

Sale-a-bration’s Softly Sophisticated Bundle

If you love coordinating products you’ll love the Sale-a-bration option for the Softly Sophisticated Bundle which includes a lovely Embossing Folder.

Want to see some cards that use this fun bundle? This first card uses the lovely Pretty Peacock and it’s coordinating Pretty Peacock & gold 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon (162588) along with our Nested Essential Dies (161597).

This color combo is quite striking and the ribbon is gorgeous in person. The catalog just doesn’t do it justice. How about a card done in Bubble Bath and Wild Wheat?

This color combo can be found in our Poetic Expressions Designer Series Paper (162814). The little Happy Labels Pick a Punch (160693) has been used to add a soft edge to the sentiment layer.

And the final card today once again uses the Bubble Bath with another of our In Colors Moody Mauve.

A bit of sponging around the outside edge of the focal point and some embellishments adds a bit of texture.

Quiet Reflection

Do you like simple stamping? Or stepping your project up with a quick and simple technique? The Quiet Reflection stamp set (162689) gives you all of these options, plus it has some great sentiments too!

This first card uses a simple technique of stamping, crumpling the paper and adding some sponging to the crinkles.

Two Classic Inks were used to ink up the image, Pean Pie and a bit of Mossy Meadow on the top image which gives it a cool effect. The sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow and the Pecan Pie 1/2″ Bordered Ribbon (161634) adds a bit more texture to the project.

This next project uses the same two color ink technique for the image but this time it is Mossy Meadow and Pretty Peacock.

The card has been stepped up with our dies the Deckled Rectangle Dies (159173) which have been used to cut out the image. Texture has been added with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (156505) to the Lost Lagoon layer and a few of the Pretty Peacock sequins from the Adhesive Backed Sequins Trio Pack (161206). And this last card uses a fun technique too.

The image was stamped in our Pebbled Path, if you haven’t added this color to your ink collection you’ll want to since it is a lovely warm gray. Then some color was added to the stamped panel in Balmy Blue and Blueberry Bushel with our Blending Brushes (153611). Add a bit of Linen Thread (104199) as your horizon. Finally our Christmas Pinecones Dies (1569309) were used in a non traditional manner to emboss the Pebbled Path card stock layer. Simply turn the dies over so that it doesn’t cut your card stock and run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss. It will emboss your card stock this way rather than cut the pinecones out. A great way to add texture and a fun technique that packs a wow factor.
