Tips tricks and techniques Tuesday Sale-A-Bration Jan to Feb 2022

 For today's inspiration I started with a blended panel that I'd made from another day and that's one tip straight off the bat 😁. When you're making messy backgrounds make spares for future projects. Now I looked at the background and wondered which Sale-A-Bration stamp set to pair it with πŸ€” Well I decided to go with the Island Vibes . This fun set just felt right and as it has no sentiments in it I decided to use the fantastic Special Moments.

To make the most of my blended background I decided to cut it into 3 narrow panels for the front of the card. Next I layed the 3 panels side by side but slightly off set.

I then used the potted palm stamp  and stamped in black onto each panel. I kept them in line with each other. To make sure they come out with a strong black colour I used a Stamparatus which is a stamp positioning tool. This means that I can stamp the image several times in exactly the same place to get a really solid colour.

I then used an embossing folder to add texture to the 3 panels and a white mat. I placed the mat onto a card base and then used 3d foam to place the 3 panels on the front. I stamped a sentiment onto a white banner and popped it on top.

Now I had some bits of the blended background left over sooooo first I decorated the inside of the card...

I stamped onto a white mat first in black with the leaf stamp. I then stamped it onto a leftover strip of the background.  I adhered the blended strip onto the mat so that it lined up.

Then I found 2 small strips of the blended background and thought ummmm what shall I do with them πŸ€”....

.... A co coordinating envelope of course 😁 i used the final image from the Island Vibes set a cute pineapple. I stuck  the 2 leftover strips down securely.  Then stamped over the 2 strips in black to continue the coordinating effect .

So there you have it no space left undecorated all from 1 10.5cm x 14.85cm piece of ready blended background! I love how this card and envelope look really coordinated and if I do say so my self rather stricking. I love the vibrant colours and stylish black stamped images. So my top tip don't throw the scraps away use them to complete the look and create beautiful cards and envelopes.
