New Catalog Reveal Countdown
Good afternoon! So happy to have you stop by. For the next five days, the gals of SSINKspiration are bringing you new projects and ideas featuring new items that will be available starting January 5th. You may see new Occasions products or new Sale-A-Bration items that you can get FREE! Check back each day as we'll all be featuring different things!
Today I'm focusing on the Sunburst Sayings bundle from the Occasions Catalog and showing three ideas.
Now for the up close and personal.
After wiping out on the ice last Monday, I'm ready for the dull dreary winter to be over and some brightness. Since Mother Nature isn't cooperating, I made a card to brighten my day! The greeting is from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set and punched with a scallop circle punch. The Melon Mambo sunburst layer is cut with the coordinating Sunburst Thinlit. I enhanced the focal point with some Basic Rhinestones.
Now for the most important part. The Melon Mambo DSP is from a pack called Perfectly Artistic. It's gorgeous and won't last long. In fact, if it doesn't sell out sooner, it's only available until February 15th. The best part? It's FREE. That's right, it's a SAB item. Wanna know a little secret? If you get the Sunburst Bundle in Wood-mount and add a package of Basic Rhinestones, you can choose this DSP pack as your FREE item!
If Vellum is more your style, you're in luck. The Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack that I used on this card is another SAB item that you can get for FREE! The Thanks is from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set, and of course I cut the vellum with the Sunburst Thinlit. Like that DSP? It is from a new 6" x 6" stack called Going Places. When you visit SSINKspriation today, check out Kim's card as she featured the Going Places Suite on her card today.
Isn't that flower jewel adorable? It's a Botanical Garden Jewel. So once again, you can purchase the Sunburst Bundle in Wood-mount, and add either the Botanical Garden Jewels or the Going Places DSP, and get this vellum as your FREE SAB item.
Saving my favorite for last.
So my third card for today was originally going to feature using the Sunburst die cut as a mask to create your own background. However, I happened upon this trick accidentally, so I had to feature it instead.
Stampin' Up! recommends using a piece of paper as a shim when running your project through the Big Shot in order to get your cut to release from the Thinlit. I hadn't done it with the first card, but thought I definitely should with the vellum on the second card. So I grabbed a piece of card stock and laid it on top of the back of the Thinlit in my Big Shot sandwich. When it came out, I had a cool embossed image! It's definitely subtle and you can see it much better in person. (Click on this card image to enlarge and you will see it better. I honestly never would have thought to use a framelit or thinlit as an embossing "folder" but it definitely works!
Of course, the Shine and It's Your Day are from the Sunburst Sayings set. You may be wondering why I keep recommending this set in Wood-mount. As you can see, there are some smaller phrases, and you will get a crisper image on these words in the wood mount.
The fun ribbon that I used is the new Pool Party Glitter Ribbon and is available in the Occasions catalog. If you pair this with the Sunburst Bundle, you can choose any SAB item for FREE!
There you have it. A specatularly long post, but one that features three ways to use one bundle. Make sure you visit SSINKspiration to see what the other designers have created. Also, stop back in tomorrow when I will feature three Bear-y cute cards!
