If you’re new to me and to Stampin’ Up! then you don’t know about Sale-a-Bration. Sale-a-Bration is an annual event that both customers and SU! Demonstrators alike look forward to every January through March. For every $50 you spend for SU! merchandise you get to choose one free Sale-a-Bration item. On Tuesday I’ll be able to give you a link to the brochure so you can check out the free products you can choose from. If you don’t yet have one but would like one for your hands-on perusal, please send me an email (Blythe@StampingWithBlythe.com) and I’ll get one off to you right away. Let me know if you have, need or want the 2015 Occasions catalog as well. It will also be online on Tuesday, January 6th.
What was I doing yesterday? I was working on a swap card (you’ll see it in a week or so when it’s finished) and then I was working on my first card using the Lotus Blossom stamp set from Sale-a-Bration. I haven’t had much time to stamp the last ten days so I’m trying to do some catching up.
Lotus Blossom is a photopolymer, 7 piece, 2-step (actually 3-step) set.
I love two-step stamping but I have to say that this one took me a few tries before getting comfortable. You can see my color splotches in the photo above, below the stamp set! I went into making the cards below feeling pretty cocky: “I know how to do two step stamping so let’s get going.” Set the brakes!!!
Each of the three flower segments are numbered.
And here are my quick and simple cards—once that color tone issue is figured out. I wanted to make a quick and easy set of cards to bundle and give as a gift when needed. You could add a second flower on the card front or certainly change the message.
Whew. One set of cards made. I hope you decide to try out this set once it goes ‘live’ on January 6th.
Have a great day and I’ll see you again tomorrow.
