Handmade Card using Lovely Lattice Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the February Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! I am privileged to be participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the United States, Canada, Australia and United Kingdom! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog. Welcome one and all. 

February is the second month of Sale-A-Bration and the theme for our blog hop this month is to feature any one of the amazing free products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog in our projects. I had several products to choose from, but I wanted to color so I selected the Lovely Lattice Stamp Set (p. 15). Coloring is so peaceful to me.

Handmade Card using Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set Lovely Lattice in Balmy Blue

This first card is a "peek-a-boo"card, meaning that the featured image is stamped on the inside and a window is created on the front of the card to "peek" inside the card. The window is created with the second largest oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits that fits inside the largest scallop oval and then use both to create the window frame.

I keep reaching for the Gingham Gala 6x6 Designer Series Paper (DSP), this time in Balmy Blue (pp. 34-34 of the new 2018 Occasions Catalog). So pretty. I could not believe that I had not purchased the Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends yet so I had to improvise and use Light Pool Party with shades of Light Smoky Slate for the flowers. And for the dark flower around the frame, I used the Stampin' Blends and the Balmy Blue ink pad. The bow is the 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon in Whisper White colored with the Stampin' Write Marker. (Pool Party - more improvising!)

Handmade Card using Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set Lovely Lattice in Highland Heather

This second card is a "framed" card. I built the frame using the largest and third largest rectangles from the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits using the Gingham Gala 6x6 DSP in Highland Heather to match the flowers. The flowers were stamped around the edges of a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of cardstock using the Stamparatus. (I have a template. If you are interested, message me.) The bow is the 3/8 Classic Weave Ribbon in Whisper White colored with the Stampin' Write Marker. (Highland Heather) The sentiment is from Colorful Seasons.
