SAB Spotlight: Flower & Field Patchwork Technique + VIDEO

The Flower & Field Designer Paper is my favorite of the Sale-a-Bration paper offering. I love these bright blooms and how they are contrasted with black blackgrounds.  See More Flower & Field DSP Cards

I wanted to find a fun way to highlight the fun patterns, so I turned back to some old techniques that used strips of designer paper: Herringbone, Faux Quilting, and Faux Iris Twist. Maybe it's the patterns of this paper, but I feel like a more appropriate name of this technique is Patchwork. Here is what I created by arranging 1/2" strips of the Flower & Field Designer Paper.

SAB Spotlight: Corner Bouquet Emboss Resist

I am not usually a "messy" stamper. I like things clean and simple. Embossing is a borderline "messy" technique because it involves spreading powder on your stamped image and funneling it back into the jar. I kicked it up a notch on the mess level and applied my Basic Gray ink pad directly to the embossed paper to create this card. Yes, you read that right. I smeared my gray ink pad across this card. On purpose. lol But check out the stunning result!

I couldn't decide whether to do this card vertical or horizontal, so I made both. Which layout do you prefer? Leave me a comment and let me know!

SAB Spotlight: Approaching Perfect Ombre Birthday Cards

After Christmas, I think birthdays are probably the occasion that people send the most cards for. Do you send a lot of birthday cards? 
Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration Approaching Perfect Ombre Birthday Cards + VIDEO tutorial ~ www.juliedavison.com #simplestamping #stampinup #saleabration #sab2021

The Sale-a-Bration Approaching Perfection stamp set offers a lot of fun sentiments to use on birthday cards. I created a whole set of cards using every single stamp in this set and paired it with the Oh So Ombre Designer Paper. You can get either (or both!) of these for free with a qualifying order before Sale-a-Bration ends on Sunday, February 28.

Here are close-ups of each card. Which color is your favorite? Rococo Rose, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, or Blackberry Bliss? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Don't forget to stamp the inside! I added a simple 4" x 5-1/4" white layer and stamped the balloons and inside sentiment.


I used the same simple layers for these cards. Here are the measurements:
  • 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Card Base
  • 4" x 5-1/4" Designer Paper 
  • 4" x 5-1/4" White (inside)
  • 2-3/4" x 4-1/4" Color Layer
  • 2-1/2" x 4" White
  • 2" x 3" Designer Paper (to punch balloons)
Watch the video tutorial and follow along to stamp a stack of birthday cards with me!
