Yep, there is more Leadership fun to share today! In fact, I’m going to share two! I changed up what I am posting (I promised Geometrical) because I thought you’d enjoy seeing a preview of a set that will be available during Sale-a-bration (otherwise known as the most wonderful time of the year for stampers!). The set I am using today is called See Ya’ Later and it has wonderful sentiments.
I have to say that since I went to Florida State University, I haven’t ever spent a lot of energy on “Gator” things (the Florida Gators are a big rival) but when faced with a sentiment this cute I could not resist. I had one of those moments of inspiration and realized that a triangle from my Perfect Pennants Die would make an adorable alligator. I cut out two of them out of Gumball Green (I used the medium sized one) to start. My Envelope Punch Board was sitting on my table at the time and I used the corner rounder on that to round off all the corners. Then, I ran the triangles through my Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (another Sale-a-bration product). On the bottom triangle, I scored it with my Simply Scored Tool 1/2″ from the wide end and then, using Sticky Strip, attached the two triangles. This scoring allows a bit of a hinge so his mouth can open some. I cut another triangle out with the Big Shot from Whisper White then hand cut the little triangle on the edges.
After trimming off the wide end a bit, I positioned it inside his mouth and attached. Put a Dimensional in between the layer of his mouth to help it stay open. Finally for his eyes, I used a 1/2″ Circle Punch and attached some googly eyes. The alligator goes up on Dimensionals to allow his mouth to be open on the card. The DSP is from Epic Day and the back panel is Pool Party Card Stock. The inks match and I used a Pool Party button and some White Baker’s Twine to finish it off.
Since you already saw my Artisan Wednesday Wow using this concept, I thought I’d share my sunshine card too. I started with a base of Sahara Sand and added grass using the Sale-a-bration DSP Sweet Sorbet. I used the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch and Quatrefancy DSP for the sun center and the Banner Punch (Sale-a-bration) on Daffodil Delight for the sun rays. Because I didn’t have the Word Bubble Framelit yet, I hand cut the clouds but it is so much easier with the framelit!! They are embossed with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White and cut out using the Chalk Talk Framelits. I shortened the length and the rounded the corners again with the Envelope Punch Board rounder. I stamped the word Happy in Daffodil Delight ink and hand cut the letters apart and attached with Glue Dots to give a little more texture to the sentiment.
I hope you like these and that you will enjoy the Sale-a-bration products as much as I already have! The promotion begins on January 28th so start making your lists. For every $50 you spend, you can get one of these SAB items FREE!
