Happy Monday crafters. I have been doing my best to combat the January blues this weekend by spending some time making super lovely Sale-A-Bration celebration cards. I have a whole week of projects to share with you using the exclusive stamp sets you can receive for free with an order of £45+ during Sale-A-Bration.
My first project of the week uses the Botanicals For You stamp set (designed to coordinate with the Botanical Blooms bundle from the Spring Summer catalogue). And I love a project where I can combine more than one of my crafty interests. For this card I stamped the greeting and the flowers so they each overlapped the other giving one continuous image. I stamped them in Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo and Old Olive.
I then used a craft knife to cut around all the elements of the joined stamped images giving a very delicate paper cut piece which I then mounted using cut up Dimensionals on the reverse. This was very different to my usual papercutting process as I would normally cut on the reverse (cutting a flipped image) on much thinner paper. However, I loved the effect of papercutting using my Stampin' Up! supplies. By mounting with Dimensionals you can see the shadow created by the papercut on the Very Vanilla piece behind.
I finished my card by mounting my paper cut over Very Vanilla, Old Olive and Melon Mambo. I then added Basic Rhinestones to my flowers. Such a fun way to bring together two of my crafting loves.
