Positive Inkers Global Design Team - September 2021

Hello there and Happy September to you! I’m thrilled to be blog hopping today with the Positive Inkers Global Design TeamWe are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the globe who are super-excited to share our love of creativity. I’m so happy you stopped by today! 

If this is the fist time you are visiting, please let me introduce myself. My name is Anne Marie Hile and I live in San Antonio, Texas. Welcome! 
Our theme this month is: August - September 2021 Sale-A-Bration Products. For the first time ever, Stampin’ Up!® is featuring a second Sale-A-Bration event this year. What does that mean? Well, it’s a great opportunity to earn some FREE stamping goodies with your qualifying order now through September 30, 2021. Here in the US, you will earn a Sale-A-Bration item for every $50 you spend (pre-tax and shipping). You can check out all of the Sale-A-Bration products HERE

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my cards below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.
My card features two of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items: the Peaceful Prints 12” x 12” Designer Series Paper and the Be Dazzling 6” x 6” Specialty Paper. The Peaceful Prints DSP also coordinates perfectly with the Peaceful Deer stamp set featured in the August - December Mini Catalog. 

For my card, I decided to create a little woodland scene using the Peaceful Deer stamp set and the SAB papers. The trees were stamped in Garden Green ink, some stamped full-strength and some stamped-off once to lighten the color. I wouldn’t exactly call my card a “fun-fold”, it’s more of a “peek-a-boo” fold because I cut off 3/4” on the front of the card to showcase that super sparkly paper inside. I colored and fussy-cut the little critters and popped them up for added dimension. 

It’s a little tough to see in the photos, but I “grounded” the deer and bunny with a generous brushing of Wink of Stella under their feet. Then, I took my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and tapped the brush end against my finger to create little “snowy splatters” in the background. It was tough to capture in the photos but the shimmery snow really pops in-person.

  • Mint Macaron Card Base: 5-1/2” x 7-3/4”, scored at 4-1/4”

  • Be Dazzling Specialty Paper (inside card, Sale-A-Bration): 3/4” x 5-1/8” 
Here is a look inside the card. I added a coordinating sentiment and some additional stamped trees to "keep the party going" from the front of the card. I just love that Be Dazzling Specialty Paper! It’s affectionately referred to as the “disco ball paper” between me and my stamping friends. A little goes a long way and it really adds awesome detail. After all, you can never have TOO much sparkle, right?
