Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which starts off the week featuring the Flower & Field 12” x 12” Designer Series Paper from the 2021 Sale-A-Bration Catalog! I don’t know about you, but SAB is my favorite time of the year because of all the products that you can earn for FREE (with a qualifying purchase), and who doesn’t like free crafting supplies?? The Flower & Field DSP is one of three DSP’s that can be earned with a $50 product purchase from now until February 28th. Now, let’s take a moment to talk about SAB and the change that you may have noticed. In previous years, the SAB catalog would end at the end of March, however, this year is ends at the end of February. The change in the SAB time is due to largely because this is also during the Chinese New Year and has caused product availability issues. Starting this year, SAB will happen twice a year (Jan-Feb and July-Aug), with Jan-Feb have domestically-sourced products. I, for one, am pretty excited about SAB twice a year!! Since this is the last month to earn SAB products, I will be dedicating each week to one product for creativity and inspiration, starting with the Flower & Field DSP!
The base layer is this design from the Flower & Field DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼” (vertical):
For the card front, you will need:
1. Choose one of the smaller sentiments from the Lovely You stamp set to stamp in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and die-cut out with the fourth largest Layering Circles Dies.
2. Use the third largest scalloped Layering Circles Dies to die-cut from Crumb Cake cardstock, this will be layered under the above piece.
3. On Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the flowers shown from Lovely You in Cherry Cobbler and Flirty Flamingo inks, stamp the leaves in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks, and fussy cut out.
4. Use enough of the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim to tie into a bow.
I used liquid glue to adhere the die-cut circles, the flowers and leaves as shown, and a glue dot to adhere the lace trim bow:
This completed piece is adhered to the DSP base layer:
The base layer is adhered to an Early Espresso cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and adhere the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom. I left the inside sentiment out so that I can choose which one I want to use at a later date:
For one of the larger sentiments, I used the third largest Layering Circles Die for the sentiment and the second largest scalloped Layering Circles Dies for the Crumb Cake cardstock:
Quick and easy card to make and use up your DSP! I made six of these cards, just changing up the sentiment on the card front! I find it easier to die-cut the circles first and use my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiments!
