Today, the design team over at Stylin’ Scrappin’ Inkspiration decided to do a post sharing ideas using the upcoming Sale-a-Bration items (if you have no idea what that means, Stampin’ Up has a promotion every spring – this time starting January 28th – where for every $50 you order, you can pick any item in this special catalog to get free with your order; which is what we are playing with today!) And since I wanted to play along, I dug through my limited stash of Sale-a-Bration goodies to come up with a fun project to share.
So today I have another “Little bit of this and that” style card to share –
It all started with the pair of fringe scissors on my desk and a vision of this super duper great fringed card that my downline, Stacey shared in our team facebook page. I took the inspiration of layered fringing and started grabbing what was lying around on my desk.
This included a card base that got ink and spots on it at a recent card class:
And the plan to use my fringes to cover it up… because darn it… it is still a totally usable card base!
So, I grabbed some scrap paper and started cutting and layering.
Where is the Sale-a-Bration stuff you ask?
All in the top of the card!
First up, the super cute sentiment from a new See Ya Later stamp set (and yes, it has a sentiment that says “See Ya Later, Alligator”! I had to color it in with markers because, well, I just did.
And then see that flower and those diamonds? More SAB goodies!
These are the Sweet Sorbet self-adhesive cork embellishments. I will warn you – this isn’t your kiddos adhesive. I stuck one of those diamonds down and when I decided I wanted to move it, it was NOT going anywhere! I had to carefully slice it out of my card using scissors to get it to move. So, word to the wise, they are great embellishments, just make sure you have it where you think you want it before pushing it down.
