Ink. Stamp. Share. January Monthly Blog Hop Sale-a-bration

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share January Monthly Blog Hop as we showcase products from the 2023 Sale-a-bration Catalog. Our wonderful Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to get creative with these wonderful products. During Sale-a-bration, you can earn exclusive products for free with a qualifying order. 
One of the Sale-a-bration products that I haven't had a chance to play with lately is the Sending Support stamp set. This stamp set is a Level 1 Reward that you can earn free with a qualifying order ($50 in the U.S). I love the variety of sentiments and the mix of fonts in this stamp set and I wanted to use it to create a St Patrick's Day card that would be supportive and uplifting. I paired it with the Friendly Gnomes stamp set and coordinating Gnomes Dies and colored the gnome to resemble a leprechaun. The background was created using one of the designs from the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper, which is a Level 2 Sale-a-bration Reward you can earn free with a qualifying order ($100 in the U.S.). The combination of greens made it perfect for a St Patrick's Day card.

This cute St Patrick's Day card is a wonderful combination of greens that gives this design a fresh, cheerful look. I attached the layer of designer series paper to the front of the card base to create the background. The tag was die cut using the Something Fancy Dies from Basic White cardstock and I used one of the small dies in this set to die cut the hole at the top of the tag. I tied a piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon through the hole to add some sparkle to the card. For the gnome, I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and die cut it out with the coordinating die from the Gnomes Dies. I colored the gnome with Stampin' Blends Markers and I love the contrast between the Shaded Spruce and Pumpkin Pie that gives the gnome the feeling of a leprechaun. I colored the sleeves and the flowers with Granny Apple Green and I love that the flowers look similar to clover blossoms that you would associate with St Patrick's Day. The shoes were colored with Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends Markers to complete the gnome.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image from the Sending Support stamp set using White embossing powder and die cut it using one of the dies from the Something Fancy Dies. I attached it to the bottom of the tag and then added the gnome to the tag with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I attached the tag to the card front with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, centering it on the card. For embellishments, I added several Brushed Brass Butterflies to the tag and Evening Evergreen Opal Rounds for a touch of bling to the card front. For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black ink and adhered the strip of designer series paper across the bottom, before attaching it to the inside of the card.
