Wooo hooo! Sale-A-Bration 2016 has begun. I love all the products you can earn for FREE this year during Sale-A-Bration. Don't forget that some of the items in the back of the brochure (pages 16 to 19) are ONLY available for a short time (until February 15).
I used one of these limited availability sets - simply called Hello - on this bright, fun card that was inspired by my daughter-in-law. While we were stamping during their Christmas visit to us, she commented that you could use the fun Honeycomb Embellishments from the Occasions Catalog as the center of a sun. So, I spritzed one yellow and adhered it to the center of a group of rays that I had stamped using the Ray of Sunshine Set and made sparkle with some of my favorite new product, the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. Then, I added the sentiment from the Hello Set and made it sparkle too!
Uses Hello Clear-Mount Set and Ray of Sunshine Clear-Mount Set plus Tempting Turquoise Classic Stampin' Pad, Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin' Ink Refill, Brights Collection Stampin' Write Markers (Daffodil Delight), Daffodil Delight Card Stock, Tempting Turquoise Card Stock, Whisper White Card Stock, SNAIL Adhesive, Tear & Tape Adhesive, Honeycomb Embellishments, Stampin' Spritzer, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, 1" Circle Punch (used to make a mask), Stampin' Trimmer, Clear-Mount Block A, Clear-Mount Block H, water, rubbing alcohol, and Post-It Notes.
I punched a 1" Circle from a Post-It Note and placed it on the white card stock as a guide for where to stamp the sun rays.
To color the Honeycomb Embellishment, I spritzed it with a mixture of Daffodil Delight Ink Refill, rubbing alcohol, and water and then allowed it to dry. I did find that this made the adhesive backing included on the embellishment so saturated that it wouldn't tear off easily. So, I had to use some additional adhesive in the form of Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere the embellishment to the center of the circle of rays.
The Honeycomb Embellishments will get smooshed when the card is mailed (or scanned), but they still look pretty cool and can be fluffed back up once the card is received.
