Stampers Dozen Blog Hop - Let's Sale-a-Brate Again!



You might have just arrived from Joanne Cantrell's blog or you might be starting here. The STAMPERS DOZEN BLOG HOP is bringing you projects made with the 2nd release of Sale-a-Bration products - SO MUCH FUN!!! There are 3 different products in this 2nd release:

  • Eclectic Expressions stamp set 
  • Springtime Foil Specialty Designer Series Paper, and
  • Blossoming Basket Bundle (stamp set & embossing folder)



I chose to use the BLOSSOMING BASKET BUNDLE for my cards for a couple fun techniques. First I used ink on the BASKET WEAVE Embossing Folder and then I did a little 3-D effect with the flowers in my basket.


You'll find a video tutorial for both of the techniques here with lots of tips:

  • Crumb Cake 11" x 4-1/4" scored at 5-1/2"
  • Whisper White 4-3/4" x 3-1/2"
  • Pumpkin Pie 4-7/8" x 3-5/8"

Below is a view showing how intricate the flowers look when you stack them:


For the inside I colored another flower in with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends, cut it out and glued it in place on the 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White layer:


Here's a good view of the flowers on this one:


This layout is pretty in Daffodil Delight too!


And another close up - isn't this pretty?


Here's what happens when you put too much ink on your embossing folder - don't do this - LOL!


The sample above is with the ink applied to the side of the folder with the Stampin' Up! logo on it. The sample below is when the ink is applied to the other inside panel.


I can't wait to send these cards out!!! They are sooo pretty!
