Sale-A-Bration, Patterned Occasions Part 1

Artisan Wednesday Wow - Feb3

Welcome back to my blog! This week the Stampin’ Up Artisan Design Team is featuring a new set of projects using supplies from the Spring Catalog in our blog hop. You might have just arrived from Jeanna’s blog. If not, go back and look at her cute, creative project!

For today's card, I decided to pull out my watercolor paper and use some of the same colors and patterns from the Parker's Patterns Designer Series Paper. I dropped ink into the lids of my stamp pads rrom the reinkers, and picked it up with my Aqua Painter. I painted narrow stripes with rough edges using Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler and Not Quite Navy inks. I also chose one of the striped pattern papers to compliment my design, and trimmed about a 1.5" strip. Both the watercolor piece and the striped piece were matted with Not Quite Navy Card Stock, and adhered to a Whisper White card base that is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".


For the focal point, I stamped the Just Thinking stamp in Not Quite Navy ink onto Whisper White card stock, and just trimmed it out by hand close to the border. I die cut a frame from Not Quite Navy Card Stock using the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies, and adhered the stamped greeting to this piece. I added a Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the image. To finish, I adhered two of the large Silver Basics Designer Buttons to the card front, and then mounted the stamped greeting using Stampin' Dimensionals. It's a bold look, and something different for me! Using the Parker's Patterns papers has definitely pushed me out of my normal design "comfort zone" a good way.


Well, that is all for today. You will find the supplies listed below. I’ll have some more Sale-A-Bration samples to share with you this week. You’ll want to join us again next Wednesday as we feature another hop with all new projects! And, don’t forget to click to get to Sarah’s Blog for the next stop on the hop.
