We Bee Stamping Team Blog Hop - Marching Into Spring

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to our March Blog Hop - Marching Into Spring

It's coming... it's finally coming!  Have you ever been so excited to see spring coming more than this year?  I, for one, feel like winter has lasted forever and that we have been locked inside since I don't know when.  I am sure its likely because, this month, we will be in what I call Covid mode, for a year.  Spring to me is new life, renewal, fresh air, bright colors, flowers and more.  Bring it on!

For my Marching Into Spring project, I chose to combine a few of my favorite products.  The NEW (starts March 2, 2021) Butterfly Bouquet, the Forever Fern Bundle, and semi-new Many Messages Bundle.

Let's take a look:

Sale-A-Bration Last Minute Inspiration

Here is some more Sale-a-Bration Inspiration from cards I received from some teammates.  I have linked all the products used below for quick reference and a quick shopping link to my store.  ewe... sorry about that photo, I guess that's what I get when I'm in a hurry. LOL!

PicsArt_02-23-06.32.52

I love how the background was stamped right on the card base.  On the two Bermuda Bay cards, there is no extra layer except for the Oh So Ombre Free Sale-a-Bration Paper, then a simple label. 

Now the center card takes it up a notch... still having a stamped background directly on the card base; which by the way, is Crumb Cake.  There is then a layer of the Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre SAB paper, with some splotches of ink, a rub of ink in the middle done with the Blending Brushes, then a White Embossed floral element.

A Touch of Ink

Sale-a-Bration:  getting rewarded for your purchases.  Who couldn't ask for a better deal!  For every $50 in product purchased from the Annual or Mini catalogs, you receive a Free Sale-a-Bration item.  

Sale-a-Bration (SAB) end on February 28, 2021 so I am highlighting all things SAB from now until then.  I think this was my favorite set of projects so why not highlight them first.   These card features two fan favorites, Oh So Ombre 6x6 Designer Series Paper Stack and the stamp set, A Touch of Ink

There are 2 Levels of SAB... $50 earns and $100 earns.  Oh So Ombre is Free with a $50 purchase and A Touch of Ink is Free with a $100 purchase.  I have to say, this stamp set have a TON of stamps in it and it is 2-step stamping (outline & filler images).  Very cool.   So let's take a look. 

PicsArt_02-09-10.29.52

Colors of Oh So Ombre DSP:  Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green, Rococo Rose, and Bermuda Bay.

ALL gorgeous colors!  Here is a closure view of the individually:

PicsArt_02-09-10.39.28 PicsArt_02-09-10.41.53

  • Card Base:  Thick Basic White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4 on the long side.  Make sure to pre-score the thick paper before you fold in half to prevent cracking.  
  • Oh So Ombre DSP background:  4 x 5-1/4"
  • Solid card stock layer (in colors mentioned above):  3-1/4 x 4-3/4"
  • Basic White CS layer:  3 x 4-1/2"  (I made a mistake and cut mine to 3 x 4-1/4" but still used)
  • Inks are again in same colors as the Oh So Ombre paper and you will need Memento Basic Black
  • Stamp images onto Basic White piece, adhere to solid card stock and add to card with Dimensionals.

ALTERNATIVE:

If you look closely at my Blackberry Bliss card, I stamped the butterfly and leaves on the Basic White just like all the other cards.  Then I stamped them again on some scrap Basic White CS, fussy cut out the butterfly and a couple of the leaves, then added the fussy cut pieces with Dimensionals.

What a fun stamp and die set!!!  So the Chick Chick was a free Sale-a-Bration earn from 2017 and it was so crazy popular, Stampin' Up! decided to bring it back with coordinating dies!  

Let's take a look at what I came up with.... which I am so excited about:

Isn't that cute!  The corn and stalks, and the chick coop.... oh my!

I colored the chicken with Stampin' Blends in Crumb Cake Light & Dark, then used Dark Poppy Parade and Dark Mango Melody for his waddle, top and beak.

I cut one piece of fencing and cut in half lengthwise and then over lapped to get a continuous look.
