Here is a sneak peek of one of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets that will be available in January 2015. This set is called Lotus Blossom. It is a 3-step stampin’ set. It is absolutely easy-peasy with the new photopolymer material. The stamps are see-through, so no Stamp-a-ma-jig is necessary!
Hunter helped me design this card. The first layer of the blossom is stamped in Marina Mist. The second layer is Pool Party and the third is Soft Sky. The stem is stamped in Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzazz. She suggested punching the flower out with the 2″ Circle punch, then punching the Pear Pizzazz layer with the 2 1/2″ Circle punch so the Soft Sky card base would show through. We then popped the stamped circle up on dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped in Marina Mist and punched out with the Curly Label punch. An extra punch of Soft Sky to layer the sentiment on helps give it definition. There was too much plain Pear Pizzazz space…then Hunter suggested we cut a doily for the corners. It gave it the softness it needed without detracting from the blossom.
I am in love with this set! It literally took us less than 15 minutes to make this card from start to finish. This set can be yours for FREE during Sale-A-Bration, beginning January 6th, with a purchase of $50 in products!
