Welcome to the ICS January Blog Hop as we celebrate the New Year with the new 2020 Sale-a-bration Catalog. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as we share projects created with a variety of products you can earn Free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration, which runs from January 3rd to March 31st, 2020.For my card design, I chose to use the beautiful Power of Hope Bundle (item #152318) to create this pretty card. I love that this bundle has a versatile stamp set and a wonderfully textured embossing folder. For this card, I chose to focus on just the stamp set but you can see the texture of the Stone 3D embossing folder that I used in this post to create a completely different type of card.
I love the Oriental feel to this stamp set and I was able to use several of the images as well as one of the sentiments to create this card design. I started with a Purple Posy card base and added a layer of Thick Whisper White to create the background design for this card. I used one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies (item #149638) to cut an opening in the Thick Whisper White cardstock and I used the label shape for the focal design.
To create the background, I stamped the tree image randomly all over the Thick Whisper White cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder. I them used Sponge Daubers to apply Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink Classic ink to create a soft background. I love the way the embossed gold trees create a delicate filigree look to the background.
For the focal image, I stamped the Geisha image using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder to coordinate with the background. I colored the image and ground using Stampin' Blends Markers. To create the soft sky, I lightly sponged the Whisper White cardstock with Petal Pink Classic ink using a Sponge Dauber.
To assemble the card, I attached the focal image to the card base using Snail Adhesive, making sure it lines up inside the opening of the background layer. Next, I attached the background layer to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals, carefully lining it up over the focal image. To create the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Gold embossing powder onto Purple Posy cardstock and die cut it with one of the smaller dies from the Ornate Frames Dies (item #150664) to create the label. I attached the label to the background with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. To complete the card design, I added gold sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins (item #151325), that can be found in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog, using Mini Glue Dots to attach them to the background of the card.
There are so many wonderful possibilities available with this amazing bundle that you can earn Free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration, which starts January 3rd and ends March 31st. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to create your own beautiful projects with these exclusive new products.
