My (Current) Second Release Favorites!
With the Second Release of the 2020 Sale-a-Bration Promotion, I found it really hard to figure out what to use first. So I used my (current!) two favorites, along with punches and another stamp set from the January-May 2020 Mini Catalog.
Color It Any Way You Wish
The brand new Tags in Bloom Stamp Set is one you can get FOR FREE with a $100 purchase of Stampin’ Up! products! This set is so much fun, whether you like to hand-color images or not. If you do, it’s perfect for using either your Stampin’ Write Markers or Stampin’ Blends. If you’d just as soon not hand color flowers, there are “filler” stamps for all of the flowers in the set.
And, no, you don’t have to use the same color for everything. The flower and bud for filling in the main image on top of the large stamp in the set are on one stamp. The leaves are on another. It’s so easy either way you color it! I chose to use Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam for my coloring. Then I hand-cut the large stamp.
For the sentiment, from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in the Mini Catalog, I wanted to have a bit of texture. So I stamped it and the stitched outline stamp on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Then punched the stamped image with the Label Me Lovely punch, also from the Mini Catalog. Finally I adhered it to the large stamped and cut image.
My final bit of stamping for the central image was the small flower and bud in the bottom right corner. I first stamped and colored them. Then I hand-cut them out and adhered them to the main stamped image.
The new Vellum is a WOW!
Now comes my other favorite FREE Sale-a-Bration Second Release product – the gorgeous So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper, which you can get FOR FREE with a $50 Stampin’ Up! purchase. There are three colors of vellum in this set, and I used the Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam colors that I’d used to color the stamped images. I cut them both 4” x 3” with the Sea Foam layer on top and the Posy layer angled slightly behind it.
The Designer Series Paper that’s the top base layer is a sheet from the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper set. This particular sheet has a lot of the Soft Sea Foam color in it and coordinates oh so well with the stamped images and vellum. I matted the Designer Series Paper with a sheet of Purple Posy cardstock.
My final touch is a bow made with the Whisper White 1/4” Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon from the Mini Catalog. I colored it with my Soft Sea Foam Dark Stampin’ Blend that coordinates with the other main color in the Designer Series Paper.
