Hi guys! I have a card today that features one of the lovely sets from the SAB catalog. The biggest SU promotion of the year is almost over and when it gos away, your chance to earn these fabulous sets is gone. Today's card uses the set called Bliss which can be yours with any $50 purchase. Take a look at the card and I will tell you more about it.
This card uses tons of materials but each one adds a little something so it was worth it to make that huge mess on my desk as I created it. That's what I'll tell myself as things slip off the piles, right? ;D
As I mentioned, I used Bliss for the little butterfly. It is stamped in Marina Mist which is the same color used for the middle border strip. I stamped a strip of it with the Mini catalog offering called In Stitches. I used Soft Suede ink for this part as well as much of the distressing. After I stamped the faux stitching, I crumpled it a little to rough it up. I wanted a shabby look tot he card so everything is distressed in some way.
The floral embellishment is created with a couple paper daisies that were sponged with Very Vanilla and more Soft Suede inks. The centers were punched (Boho Blossoms) from So Saffron CS and then spritzed with Log Cabin Smooch Spritz. I LOVE this product so much. It is perfect to add just a touch of color or shimmer to your project and it is so easy to use! A couple brads (Marina Mist from the Subtles Designer Brads collection) and leaf sprigs (2 Step Bird Punch) finish it off.
The sentiment is from Word for You and it is stamped with Soft Suede ink. I masked off a portion to just leave the word "thanks." That circle is cut using the new 3" Circle Sizzix die and my Big Shot. I love that we now have larger circles to choose from for our projects. This die is offered in the Occasions Mini but will be carried over in the next big catalog. I sponged the edges with more Soft Suede ink. The edges of the card are all sponged too. That lovely green polka dot DSP is from the Level 1 Hostess 6x6 In Color DSP paper pack. I love that the patterns are a little different from the regular Patterns DSP series. You can earn this cute little paper pack by holding a qualifying workshop or ordering at least $150 yourself.
I think that does it for this card. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
