Hey friends! TGIF!! I'm back again this week with another close-up of a Sale-A-Bration freebie, this time sharing the Rings of Love 12x12 Designer Series Paper along with a closer look at the coordinating bundle---Ringed with Nature, that you can find in the July-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog from Stampin' Up! Check out THIS VIDEO for all the details... See below for a closer look at the resulting cards...
I had so much fun playing with the Ringed with Nature bundle in conjunction with the FREE paper that coordinates so beautifully. I didn't initially have my eye on the Ringed with Nature bundle, but when I saw how well it coordinates with this FREE Sale-a-Bration item, I had to have it. Stampin' Up! works so hard to create products that coordinate, making creativity easy and beautiful. I knew having the bundle that matches this freebie would add to the enjoyment, and I was totally right!! In addition to the extra fun, I'd like to share two other points that added to my decision to purchase these products:
The Ringed with Nature bundle comes with a stamp set, coordinating die set AND a gorgeous, coordinating embossing folder that works with the dies to create layered die cuts, adding a whole additional dimension to the die cut wood ring images. Normally bundles of product consist of stamps and and coordinating dies, for a similar price point, so it's like you're getting the embossing folder for FREE.
The cost of the Ringed with Nature bundle is $53 (US), earning you a Sale-A-Bration freebie! Rings of Love 12x12 Designer Series paper can be your FREE ITEM (while supplies last!!) -- so get this while you still can, because once Stampin' Up! runs out of this free item, it will not be re-stocked.
You can purchase these items HERE, in my shop, and they'll ship right to your door, anywhere within the United States.
Here is a closer look at the cards I created this morning, with these beautiful products...
These were the first two cards I put together using the paper and the Ringed with Nature Bundle. I used a platform of Evening Evergreen card stock to build the wood slice/mushroom focal image on, which quiets the gorgeous background pattern a bit and catches your eye. For the Christmas card, I just stamped and fussy-cut the poinsettia flowers with my snips and popped them up with dimensional adhesive to literally bring them forward in your view. This is another way to separate your focal image from the background images on your card.
The card on the left is a great example of using just a simple sentiment and a couple of tag dies to draw your attention, while leaving the Designer Series Paper to do the work of making the card look beautiful! A quick and easy card idea! The card with the house is one of my favorites from this morning's creative efforts... I love this background pattern and the little house was super easy to fussy-cut from the big sheet of houses included as one of the patterns in that pack. I stamped and cut out a little leafy sprig and also die cut that cute berry bundle using the dies. I built this little scene on a small circle of vellum to filter out some of the background pattern and draw your attention to my focal image. This is a perfect card to give to my sister-in-law and her husband to congratulate them on their new home in South Carolina!
These last two are the cards I created using the same supplies, just different focal images. I created the top card on camera, using a house that I fussy cut from paper in the FREE Rings of Love DSP pack. A couple of additional clean + simple cards using this gorgeous FREE paper and the coordinating bundle.
I hope you've enjoyed a closer look at these fun, versatile, beautiful products. I'd love to know your thoughts--feel free to leave any comments or questions below.
