Today’s card features a sneak peek of a Sale-a-Bration free gift you can earn with a $100 order beginning on August 3rd! There are eight different products you will be able to earn with a $50 purchase and two that you can earn with a $100 purchase and there’s no limit to how many products you can earn!

The sneak peek product I used is the Summer Shadows Dies (I can’t share a picture until these dies go live on August 3rd) and they coordinate with our Shaded Summer stamp set in the Annual Catalog. During this round of Sale-a-Bration, some products will only be available while supplies last.  The Summer Shadows Dies are one of three products with a limited supply so once they’re available on August 3rd, you’ll want to grab your set as soon as you can.


Shaded Summer stamp set


Shaded Summer Stamp Set


I started with a base of Highland Heather cardstock and then added a layer of Basic White cardstock that I placed inside the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder and ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (you’ll need to use our Specialty Plate when using our 3D embossing folders). Using the Scalloped Contours Dies I cut a rectangle out of Basic White cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Memento Ink using the Artistically Inked stamp set. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the embossed Basic White cardstock.


Summer Shadow Dies


On another piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flower image from the Shaded Summer stamp set using Memento Ink. Because I wanted a good solid image, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the image. I die cut the flowers (using the Summer Shadows Dies – available August 3rd) before coloring them because I didn’t want to make a mistake cutting them out after taking the time to color them. Then I colored the image using my Stampin’ Blends:  Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the scalloped rectangle.

To complete the card, I added three 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in Fresh Freesia.
