Country Floral Sale-a-Bration Release 2

Country Floral Sale-a-Bration Release 2

I’m a BIG lover of all things layered and textural. As soon as I saw the Country Floral Embossing Folder, I knew I had to have it.  I couldn’t wait to run it through the Big Shot to see the impression it would create. It did not disappoint. I’ve said it before, but I really feel like I need to say it again. The Country Floral folder has to be the prettiest I’ve ever seen.

Let me say, first of all, I’m very sorry that the Grapefruit Grove Foil paper is no longer available. But, that tells me one important thing. There are lots of you out there that have it. So, I wanted to show you how to use it. GET yourself the Country Floral Embossing Folder and run a piece of that gorgeous paper through the folder. You are gonna swoon.

In today’s card I am also featuring the gorgeous Botanical Butterfly DSP, that you can earn for FREE during the Sale-a-Bration promotion. It’s so easy to make a dramatically beautiful card by just fussy cutting one of the large butterflies from the paper.

One of my favorite stitched die sets is the Stitched Labels. That set is so versatile and so many different shapes are in the set. You’ll find yourself cutting and layering them on every project. I cut the largest label in Highland Heather for the backdrop of that lovely butterfly.

I LOVE to create my own designer series paper. So that’s just what I did. I broke out a sheet of Whisper White cardstock and a few ink colors and stamped my heart out. I loved each and every minute of it.

Because I needed a lot of cards for my customers that purchased my February WOW Class to GO!, I really wanted to use this set. The flowers are just so lovely. My color combo was Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, and Poppy Parade.

Then I needed a card for our first ever Team Challenge.  I love my WOW Team and everyone was so excited to kick off our Challenge Series. On my exclusive Team Facebook Page, I posted a card sketch I found on Pinterest and off we went. Here’s my card for the challenge.

If you know me, you know I’m all about texture and layers in my designs. This sketch was right up my alley.  And of course, I couldn’t resist using another FREE Sale-a-Bration offering, the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This has got to be the prettiest embossing folder I’ve ever seen.

It was definitely the perfect backdrop for this card. This too, is one of the cards I featured in my Susan’s Sunday WOW LIVE Show on Facebook this week.  I’m live at WOW NOLA Creations Sunday evenings at 7pm (CST). Hope you can stop by and join the fun.

Stampin’ Up! has the market cornered on this new DistINKtive technology. That’s what makes this flower soooo beautiful! One stamping motion and you get all those highlights and low lights. I’ld call that pretty perfect. Are you ready to see what my Team created for our card sketch challenge?  They could use any set, and any color combo. Wait until you see this, they are such a talented group.
