I was playing with my stencils from the Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks and the Salebration set Hello and came up with these cards. They are simply stenciled darker at top and lighter to the bottom to create a faded look. Hello is stamped with Soft Suede.
I had finished the stripes when it occurred to me to try the Dots. Did you get this set during SAB? It’s no longer available – but there are some new stamp sets and products to take it’s place. You can see what’s new –US SAB_2016_2nd Release_print-friendly
So while I was wandering around Pinterest, I saw a beautiful card done by Jennifer McGuire (I think!) using the resist technique. This is where you heat emboss your image and sponge (or brayer) ink over the image and the ink “resists” your embossing. I tried it with the Saleabration set Hello. I stamped the image over the front of the card, embossed in white, and sponged with Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay. The result was a bright, happy card! The sentiment is from Timeless Love – one of my favorite sentiments!. This Hello set is only available for a few more days! Need it? Yes you do – and you need to hurry! Hugs, Fran
There are only 2 weeks left get certain SAB products – Hello, Sky is the Limit, and Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper! These will not be available after February 15!
There are some new things coming out after that but if you want these, you need to hurry 🙂 Hugs, Fran
Happy 2016! Let’s start the New Year with a Sale a bration card. This is Hello and it’s available free with a $50 purchase from January 5 – February 15. The little flowers are from another SAB set called Botanicals For You. It’s available from January 5 – March 31. Check those dates! There are some products available for a limited time during the limited time sale! I wanted to do a multi-colored Hello, but didn’t have a multicolored pad. So I inked the stamp up with Lost Lagoon and then used a sponge to sponge on Blackberry Bliss from one side, letting it blend as it reached half way. The colors are taken from another free SAB product, Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper. Lots of freebies going on here!
Best wishes for the New Year! Hugs, Fran
