Can you believe that 3 months have gone by so quickly and Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end tomorrow? We’ve got just over 24 hours to grab those stamps, kits and embellishments that we have been looking at and contemplating over. The Sale-A-Bration coordination products also finish up tomorrow so don’t miss out on anything that you may have wanted.
The Painted Season bundle includes a beautiful Distinktive stamp set which covers all seasons. It also includes pretty Designer Series Paper with painted images on one side and single colour patterned paper on the other, it’s easy to coordinate your paper for projects. This bundle is available as a Sale-A-Bration offering. There is also a coordinating die set which is available. All these products are available only until 31st March.
I love the paper so I wanted to show as much of it as possible on this card.
The pinecones were stamped in Early Espresso and then sponged around with Soft Suede. The leaves have been stamped in Shaded Spruce on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.
I embossed the sentiment then punched it out with the Story Label punch. This punch is also available only until 31st March.

Embossing – one word with so many methods. Heat embossing, Embossing Folders, Embossing Paste. Then there are all those embossing techniques Emboss Resist, Joseph’s Coat, Partial embossing etc. For my entry in this week’s Just Add Ink challenge I think I managed to give the Sale-A-Bration products a good workout without even realizing it. I think they just gravitated to my card!
When I first got the Painted Seasons bundle in the second release Sale-A-Bration offering, I had a picture in my mind of working the beautiful Designer Series Paper in with the Tea Time Framelits dies. There was something about that paper that reminded me of pretty tea sets. I’ve seen quite a lot of these type of sets in specialized tea shops with the ceramic tea pots which have gold edging. So I went about recreating this look.
I started off by stamping the image in Versamark direct onto the Painted Seasons Designer Paper and heat embossing in Gold Embossing powder. The paper has hand painted images for all seasons and is part of the Sale-A-Bration Painted Seasons Bundle (stamp and DSP). Then I die cut it. This in itself looked really pretty and it was such a simple process. Even this coffee drinker wouldn’t mind a cup of tea in that pretty cup.
Next I embossed the card front with the Country Floral embossing folder. This is a Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder therefore the image is very detailed and looks really pretty. This is also a Sale-A-Bration offering. I could have just added a sentiment and left the card like this and it would have looked great because it had so much texture. In this photo you can see the beautiful texture of this embossing folder.
The coordinating cardstock and sentiment was from the Tea Room Memories and More Card Pack. With a name like that, it would seem that all these products were just meant to be together. And what about that sentiment? I think it fitted in perfectly for this particular card with those Rectangle Stitched Framelits working overtime for me again. I seem to be using them on all my cards. The little butterfly is from the Memories and More card pack and I’ve mounted it with Dimensionals.
