Stampers Showcase Blog Hop - Fall Sale a bration!

Hello and welcome to the August Stampers Showcase Blog Hop. This month we are showcasing products from Fall Sale-a-bration! There is still time if you haven't taken advantage of the products available during Sale-a-bration!

For this project I have used two different Sale-a-bration! products together to create a Fall masculine card.

  1. Start with a Soft Suede card base measuring 21cm x 14.9cm scored and folded in half
  2. Cut the Tree Designer Series Paper from the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper to measure 14.3cm x 10cm in landscape position
  3. Run two 15cm lengths of the Crumb Cake Twine around the centre of the DSP and secure at the back using Tear n' Tape. Tie a 8cm piece of twine in a knot on the right hand side
  4. Glue the DSP layer to the card base
  5. Stamp the Fox in Soft Suede ink on Basic White card stock then die cut using the 10cm x 6.5cm Deckled Rectangle. Colour the Fox in using Soft Suede and Old Olive Stampin' Blends
  6. Pop the Fox layer up one the card front using Dimensionals
  7. Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake card stock and trim both ends on an angle using paper snips ( I used a sentiment from Campology stamp set but any sentiment would work)
  8. Cut a piece of Soft Suede card stock to the exact shape of the sentiment layer. Glue this to the bottom of the sentiment layer and then pop up on Dimensionals and adhere to the bottom right of the fox layer

I chose the Jar of Flowers for this colour challenge. I love the choice of floral images for the jar in this stamp set and wanted to colour the tulips in So Saffron.

  1. Start with a Petal Pink card base measuring 21cm x 14.9cm scored and folded in half
  2. Cut a piece of Basic White card stock to measure 10cm x 14.3cm
  3. Cut a piece of the Petal Pink check from the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper to measure 9.6cm x 13.9cm and adhere to the Basic White layer with glue. Then adhere the card base using DImensionals
  4. Cut a 10cm x 6.5cm stitched rectangle in Basic White card stock. Adhere this to the check layer using Dimensionals
  5. Stamp the floral image in Crumb Cake ink on Basic White card stock. Colour using the So Saffron, Petal Pink and Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Markers. Colour the smaller flowers using the Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker. Fussy cut this image
  6. Punch out a Crumb Cake jar. Run it through the Cut & Emboss Machine using the Timeworn Texture Embossing Folder. Tie a 15cm length of Linen Thread around the top of the jar before angering it to the bottom left of the Basic White Stitched Rectangle using Dimensionals. Then use dimensionals to adhere the flowers to the top of the jar
  7. Stamp the sentiment in Blushing Bride ink on Petal Pink card stock. Die cut using the  Die from the die from the Harvest Dies. Create a smaller length by moving the die along after cutting the first time. Then adhere to the bottom of the jar as in image below
