Today I’ll be sharing with you two cards that I’ve created using Sale-a-bration items, I’ve combined the Happy Birthday To You 5 Cling Stamp Set and Golden Honey 12 Sheet 12”x 12” Specialty Designer Series Paper. Each of these products are free when you spend $90.

The first card I’ve created is using only Black and Gold giving the card an elegant look. Using the Black & Gold foil Specialty DSP as the starting point for my card and layered on Basic Black Cardstock for my card base. I’ve then followed this through using Gold Foil with the second largest Die from the Stitched Nested Labels.  

Using the cake stamp from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set, I’ve stamped the image in Versamark Ink, added Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. I also did this with the Happy Birthday greeting and the single flower image. The single flower is actually from the top flower that’s on the cake and I’ve fussy cut around the image.

There are coordinating Birthday Dies for this stamp set and will be available for customers as from February 4th until March 31st 2020. Demonstrators can order these items now. I’ve fussy cut around the embossed cake image, single flower and sentiment and attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The second card is the exact same layout and the same Sale-a-bration products but I’ve used different colours, DSP and Ink.

The card base is Thick Whisper White, layered with the Black and White striped DSP and Whisper White Cardstock die cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels. I’ve then sponged So Saffron Ink with the Sponge Dauber onto the die cut piece.

The stamped cake image is stamped in Black Memento Ink and I’ve only coloured in the flowers using Stampin’ Blends in Daffodil Delight & Mango Melody. This makes the flowers pop away from the cake and I only wanted one colour with the Black & White card. The single flower has also been stamped in Black Ink and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black Cardstock, adding White Stampin’ Emboss Powder Cardstock and heat set with the Heat Tool.

All three items have been fussy cut out and attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The next demonstrator to share their Sale-a-bration inspiration with you is Tina Gillespie
