Sale-A-Bration 2013 begins in 3 days! Sale-A-Bration is Stampin’ Up!’s largest sale of the year! For every $50 in product you purchase you can choose a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! There are stamp sets, embellishments, digital content, designer paper and more! Today we are going to take a look at 2 of the Sale-A-Bration offerings this year. Both are items that are found in the annual catalog: Vintage Faceted Buttons & Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set (available in wood mount and clear mount).
To showcase these products I have 2 cards to share with you. The first is a card that was inspired by a card I came across on Pinterest. The second is a stepped up version of the card. Let’s take a look at the CASE’d card first – oh CASE means to Copy And Share Everything.
In the above card I used the same design but my stamps, colors, and embellishments are different. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and the background grungy stamp is from the Clockworks Stamp Set (available in wood mount & clear mount). I used some Champagne Glimmer Paint on the background image as well. I distressed the papers with some Soft Suede Ink and used the Color Spritzer Tool and Soft Suede marker to add a little ink spatter. I secured the sentiment with the Vintage Faceted Button. Oh and to cut out the stamped Love You sentiment I used the Big Shot and coordinating Bitty Banner Framelits!
Here’s the stepped up version.
With this card I added another stamped image from the Clockworks Stamp Set in the upper right corner of the card. I also added a dyed lace doily and instead of the vintage faceted button I custom dyed some flower trim. In addition I did not use any Champagne Glimmer Paint.
