Pals Blog Hop – Time to Sale-A-Brate!
Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I chose the Sale-A-Bration stamp set By the Bay which is free during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 purchase. Such a beautiful scene that you can make your own. Here is my finished card and matching envelope. The inside of the card matches the envelope. I will share pictures of the process below.
Here I used the Stamparatus and Stampin’ Write Markers to add individual colors rather than stamping in just one color. The Stamparatus allowed me to color tiny bits of the stamp in any color I chose and stamp them one by one without missing a beat. It held my card front in one spot as I added each color individually. Now, you may be thinking that this process would take forever but it was actually quite quick.
Once I was done adding all of my colors, I took the Blender Pen and drew some of the colors out. You can see this in the greenery and house below.
I created a mask and used sponge daubers to create the sunset using Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie. Once all three colors were on, I went back and added them again in order to blend them for a smoother look.
After I finished the sky, I flipped the post around and did the same sponge daubing technique for the sea.
Here it is with the sky and sea finished.
Finally I took the Blender Pen again and added just a little bit more color direct from the ink pad.
Here is another look at the finished card. I hope you enjoyed my project and make some time to get creative today!
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!
