Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
The Berry Blessings stamp set and the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper were favorites of mine since I first saw the Sale-A-Bration brochure. The stamp set features simple berry images and three mixed font sentiment stamps. The Designer Series Paper includes fun, bright patterns and “Berry” delightful coordinating mixed berry patterns. Combined, these products will have you stamping and smiling, and in my case, fussy cutting. In fact, I was having so much fun cutting and creating with this paper that I made a second card using different colors and patterns.
Below are the layer measurements for this card. I hope you have as much fun with this design as I did.
- Start with a standard A-2 card base. (Granny Apple Green and So Saffron)
- The Basic White layer on both cards is 5 3/8″ X 4 1/8″.
- The top layer which will hold your focal point layer is 4″ X 5 1/4″. (Granny Apple Green and So Saffron)
- The mat layer for the strawberry patterned paper is 2 7/8″ X 4 3/4″. (Shaded Spruce and Bumblebee)
- The strawberry patterned paper layer is 4 3/4″ X 2 3/4″.
- Cut the banner layer 2″ X 4″ if you are going to use the SU Triple Banner Punch. If you are going to hand crop the banner, cut the cardstock 2″ X 3 3/4″. (When the punch cuts, you lose 1/4″ from the bottom).
- The patterned layer on top of the banner is 1 7/8″ wide. If you are using the punch, cut the paper 4″ long. Attach the layer on the cardstock banner from the bottom to the top and trim the top. It’s better to have a longer layer for this cut. Trust me on this!! (smile)
- If you’re going to hand crop your banner layer you can stay closer to the finished 3 3/4″ length and trim from the top.
I still can’t decide which I like best, but you can tell me what you think. Green or yellow?
For those who read my blog regularly I want you to take notice that the color blue is not in my post today! I promised I would work on that… and I am. BUT…I’m probably going to do a blueberry card just like this one. Maybe for tomorrow’s post. (smile)
I’m wishing you the “berry best” always!
So get out your banner punch, cut a few layers, fussy cut some strawberries and create something that will make you smile.
…the only limitation is your imagination!
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!
