It's Time to Sale-A-Brate!

Hello and welcome once again. I am back with another Global Design Project Challenge. #GDP127 is a theme challenge celebrating Stampin' Up!'s biggest yearly promotion: Sale-a-bration. Have you earned your Sale-a-Bration reward yet? Sale-a-bration products are only available until the 31st March, 2018. You can choose a FREE Sale-a-bration product for every $90AUD you spend (before shipping and handling).

By the number of projects submitted to #GDP127 using the Blossoming Basket Bundle
I would say that this bundle is proving to be very popular. 

For my GDP projects today I too have chosen this bundle one of the items from the just newly released Sale-a-bration rewards I have also used the Blossoming Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.
I have attempted to use mainly Sale-a-Bration products and as always I like to make a few projects to show you the versatility of each product.

The Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Paper (DSP) is so pretty. It has 12 sheets of Spring-inspired foil designs with 3 each of 4 single-sided designs in Gold foil, Rose gold foil and Silver foil.

The little Petal Passion Embellishments in the 2018 Occasions catalogue (page 23 is where you will find them) coordinate perfectly with this DSP so I couldn't resist adding one to my tag.

   For something a little different I have added a technique I learned at Vanessa Webb's class this week. I used a Sponge Brayer to add Tuxedo Black Memento to my paper I think it really makes the foil design pop.

The card and gift tag below were my original projects for #GDP127. However Jo Stubbings had already submitted a very gorgeous similar card so I had to go back to the drawing board and start again.

I stamped with Versamark and white heat embossed before water colouring my basket of flowers with Melon Mambo, Rose Red, Lemon Lime Twist and Smokey Slate ink. 

I did design this card with my mother in mind for Mother's Day. But then I thought maybe not a good idea. She is such a 'neat freak' those fallen petals would have been wist away before they hit the table. Although I must admit at 86 years of age her home is immaculate and is truly a credit it to her.

To use more Sale-a-bration products I have made another card with a coordinating basket. The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle and the lovely Shimmery Ribbon in Basic Grey is part of a 3 roll pack containing Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral also only available during Sale-a-bration. 

My little basket is made using a tutorial kindly posted by Vicky Hayes back in March, 2013. Thank you Vicki.
