Petal Pusher- NEW Sale-A-Bration Freebie

Hello!  

Are you still digging yourself out? If you are not in the Ottawa area, you may not know, but we got a dumping of snow yesterday! It was crazy. It snowed ALL day! Buses were canceled for the kids, and it's a good thing because the buses would have gotten stuck for sure! The good news is that it wasn't -40 degree wind chill like the few days before the snow storm! It is days like this where I truly appreciate not having to drive to work each day. 🙂

A friend of mine shared this photo and I had to share. This was only taken mid-afternoon, and it was still snowing! 

lots of snow

Where's My Car??

On to some thoughts of Spring….The card(s) I have to show you today are made with the NEW Petal Pusher stamp set, now available for FREE with every $60 you spend before taxes and shipping during Sale-A-Bration!

petal pusherI wanted to show you all three of these cards together, because I think it's great to see how the same card design can look SO different just by changing the patterned paper and embellishments! 

Instructions (refer to photos):

  1. Stamp a bicycle on Watercolor Paper piece and center as shown. Add extras that you like (basket, basket contents, bird, etc…) Color in bicycle with markers of your choice. Lighter markers work best to allow the definition of the image to show.
  2. Take Smoky Slate ink pad and, while closed, gently squeeze lid into ink so ink will pool a little on it. Open pad. Using very slightly damp Aqua Painter (no need to fill, just wet the tip), dab the Smoky Slate ink and lightly brush under bicycle for shadow. My brush was almost dry and it created a cool streaking/shadowing.
  3. Stamp your favorite sentiment with Memento Pad.
  4. Affix DSP to corresponding colored card base using SNAIL.
  5. Using photos as your guide, finish the watercolor paper parts:

    1. Card on right: pierce one straight line across bottom, tie ribbon around just above pierced area, adhere to card front allowing a little of the top of the DSP to peek through and scatter/adhere sequins on front.
    2. Card in center: Using Tear & Tape, adhere the Hello Honey ribbon with some overlap on each side then with a light touch adhere lace to ribbon with some overlap on each side with liquid glue & allow to dry. Snip ribbon that is hanging off to align with edges of card. Using liquid glue, adhere wooden heart to card front. When dry adhere to card front so the watercolor piece reaches the top edge of the card.
    3. Card on left: pierce two straight lines across bottom leaving a gap wide enough for the 1/8” ribbon, tie ribbon so it rests in between the two pierced lines. Adhere strand of sequins to front with liquid glue and allow to dry. When dry, adhere to card front allowing a little of the top of the DSP to peek through.
