Sale-A-Bration Peek - Lotus Blossom

Sale-A-Bration 2015 Sneak Peek - Lotus Blossom

Sale-A-Bration will be here soon!!!!!

But TODAY I am sharing a sneak peek of one of the Free Products from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. This is Lotus Blossom, a 7 piece Photopolymer stamp set that will create beautifully layered-color flowers with just one color ink! And try two colors of ink, oh-la-la! Shut the front door!! Gorgeous.

I made two cards, as usual, using an Early Espresso card base, with Crisp Cantaloupe and Very Vanilla. The inks I used are Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Pistachio Pudding.

Different card base adds interest to this softly sweet Thank You card.
Sale-A-Bration 2015 Lotus Blossom
The first card has a somewhat fancy base, I cut a 4.25" x 5.5" base from Espresso, and layered a folded 10.5" x 4" Cantaloupe piece. The card opens upward. A little different, but a nice effect. Only down-side to this card fold is that is doesn't really stand up well on a shelf or desk, which is not a big deal, but still...
Layered over the Cantaloupe is an Very Vanilla piece embossed using the Beautifully Baroque Textured Impressions Embossing folder. A ribbon of the Espresso Seam Binding is layered next. And popped up on Dimensionals is the top layer with all the stamping!
I stamped the Lotus Blossom in Cantaloupe, stamping-off only for the 3rd layer. This set has 3 pieces to make up the flower, so you stamp 3 times. Because the stamps are photopolymer, it will be a cinch to line up - no guesswork, you can see it clearly through your block!

For the second card, I did away with the fancy base and used a more traditional A2 card layout. An Espresso base, Cantaloupe layer, and for the Very Vanilla I used the Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Zig Zag Embossing and a little different layout,
but still sweet in Cantaloupe and Espresso.

For the stamped layer I tried a little different layout, stamping the Lotus Blossom around the edges. I used a larger Vanilla piece and a smaller Espresso layer for a different look, but still added the Espresso Seam Binding ribbon. A couple Espresso Candy Dots finish it off. Well, almost. I did add a Vanilla panel inside with a single Lotus Blossom stamped, as the Espresso base is too dark for adding your personal note.
