Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | You rock!
Only 4 days left of Sale-A-Bration!
Sale-A-Bration is nearly over for another year 😦 and I want to get as much use out of the amazing products as I can before it all ends. I’m feeling pretty pleased with myself that I managed to use three different Sale-A-Bration items on today’s card, Amazing You & the Celebrate You Thinlits, Eclectic Expressions & Epic Celebrations.
I’m playing along with a challenge at AAA Cards #111 for the layout of my card and am only to use one-third of the card and to keep the design clean and simple (CAS). I really struggle with this type of card so was thrilled to find this challenge and can see myself joining in regularly.
To create the fun rainbow background I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock a little wider than the striped image from Eclectic Expressions and used my Stamparatus to stamp it repeatedly in a rainbow of colours.
I trimmed this piece as close a possible to the stamping afterwards and the width of a standard landscape card base.
I die cut the word “you” from the Celebrate You Thinlits from a slightly narrower strip of Basic Black cardstock to use the negative image on my card front which allowed some of my colourful background to show through.
It seemed a shame to waste all my background stamping so I stamped the guitar from Epic Celebrations in Momento Black ink and roughly cut it out with my craft knife. I fussy cut it afterwards leaving a border around that sketchy outline that I love and popped it up with dimensionals on my card front.
It was looking a little bland behind the guitar so I heat embossed the sunburst image from Amazing You in silver which added the little something it needed, but doesn’t compete with the guitar 🙂
To finish off my card I stamped “rock” using the Labeler Alphabet, fussy cut each letter out and adhered them ransom note style under the “you”.
I had so much fun creating today’s project, playing with colours and mixing and matching products. I was definitely out of my comfort zone with this card, but love the bright, vibrant result.
If you’d like any of the Sale-A-Bration products I used today there are only a few more days left to earn them. Epic Celebrations will be staying in my stash, it’s so great for masculine cards and I’m so glad I chose it, I’ve loved using it! The Celebrate You Thinlits will carry over into the new 2018-19 Annual Catalogue and be available to purchase, but the coordinating Amazing You stamp set won’t, so if you want it make sure to place a qualifying order soon.
