Be sure to take advantage of Stampin’ Up!’s SaleABration promotion. Receive free, exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper packs, and dies with minimum purchases. The sale ends September 30, 2021. That’s about two weeks away. Who doesn’t love free?
A couple of the offerings coordinate with holiday and winter themes and stamp sets. While you may not be in the mood for holiday crafting now, this promotion offers the perfect opportunity for you to save money on your future crafting.
For the last several months, I’ve been playing with all of the free offerings. I try to make as many cards (as time allows) with the sets, papers, and dies. The Textures & Frames photopolymer stamp set (free with a $50 purchase before tax and shipping), lends itself to a variety of background stamp techniques. See this post for a host of other card examples.
Today’s card uses the Stamparatus, Stampin’ Up!’s stamp positioning tool, to create a fun background for a bright and cheery birthday card. The Stamparatus sells for $49. Add some adhesive or card stock to your order, and you can choose the Textures & Frames stamp set (or any of the other level one choices — free).
Textures & Frames Hinge-Step Stamping
The video below shows how I created this multi-color background with one of the design images from the set. The “candles” use another of the images; I added rhinestones to act as the flames on the candles. I created the different color candles by applying ink from Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Write markers directly to the stamp. The birthday sentiments comes from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set.
