Hey there! Welcome to the January Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! We are happy to again be back to a full Stamper's Dozen (baker's dozen = 13) of crafty creators! yay!
Our theme this month, "Let's Sale-a-brate!", uses at least one product from the Sale-a-bration catalog!
For my project(s) this month I used three different Sale-a-bration items.. Each one was free with a $50 product order!
I used Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes, Heartfelt Blooms stamps, and the Shimmer Ribbon Pack, all from the Sale-a-bration brochure for my creations today.
I started with the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes for all of my card bases. This free pack (choose this with your $50 order) contains 16 preprinted card bases and envelopes; 4 each of 4 designs in Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Lemon-Lime Twist, and Pool Party. (See the supply list at the bottom of this post for the full list)
I stamped the Heartfelt Blooms flower withe Tuxedo Momento Black ink on Glossy card stock. You want to use a not-too-juicy inkpad and a light touch while inking and stamping to get the best image. This flower is part of Stampin' Up!'s new "Distinktive" line of stamps. Distinktive is also patent-pending because the way the rubber is made it lays down ink at different opacities to give the finished image more depth. Inked lightly, you get a perfect photographic finish!
For this card I stamped the Heartfelt Bloom with Bermuda Bay ink on Glossy card stock.
I used the Basic Gray 1/4" wide Shimmer Ribbon from the free Sale-a-bration pack.
I stamped a Heartfelt Blooms sentiment with Bermuda Bay ink. The trick with stamping on Glossy card stock is to be careful to not slide the stamp slide on the slick surface to keep your image crisp.
Inside I used a sentiment from Beautiful Day to turn this into a birthday card. I stamped the matching Tutti-Frutti Envelope with Heartfelt Blooms for a custom look.
The Calypso Coral version:
Lemon Lime Twist. This card is an example of using a too-juicy ink pad. The image detail was lost because of too much ink on the rubber.
Finally, my favorite card of the group! I loved the black-stamped image with the Daffodil Delight card base and ribbon!
The Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon coordinated great with the card base.
After wrapping the ribbon around the card front I added the bow with glue dots. The Clear Faceted Gem is the flower center.
