We Create August Blog Hop Sale-a-Bration Coordination

Let's start off the new month with the We Create August Blog Hop. This month we are showcasing Sale-a-bration Coordination as we celebrate the final month of Sale-a-bration for 2022. There are so many amazing products that you can earn free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration that can be found in the new July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. We will be sharing projects to help you see all the wonderful possibilities when you combine products from these catalogs. 
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so it was an easy choice for my card design today. I love the new Bewitching Bundle from July-December 2022 Mini Catalog and I thought the hats and boots would work well not only as a fun Halloween card but also as a sassy birthday card. The Silver & Gold 6"x6" Specialty Paper from the Sale-a-bration Catalog, makes a great background and I love how easy it is to blend colors with blending brushes to transform it. For my color combination, I chose Gorgeous Grape and Parakeet Party for a bright and fun look. I kept the embellishments simple, adding some Gold stars punched out with the Witch Hat Builder Punch.

This card design is so much fun and can be used for so much more than Halloween. I love the bright color combination of Gorgeous Grape with Parakeet Party and the gold polka dots and punched stars add a wonderful sparkle. The Witch's Hat is easy to stamp and punch out with the Bewitching Bundle and I colored the polka dots and band with Parakeet Party Stampin' Blends Markers to add a pop of color. For the boots, I heat embossed the image using Black embossing powder to add some shine and then I colored the stripes on the stockings with Parakeet Party and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Markers. I added a piece of the Metallic Mesh Ribbon behind the focal circle to add some sparkle and texture to the design. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Black embossing powder to coordinate with the boots. For the background, I blended Fresh Freesia and Gorgeous Grape Classic inks onto a piece of the Gold polka dot paper from the Silver & Gold Specialty Paper to help make the focal image pop. I love how this card design turned out and how well the specialty paper coordinated with the Bewitching Bundle.
