Day 14–Showcasing Sale-a-bration–Outlined Occasions

Hi Everyone, this week will be the conclusion of me showcasing the different Sale-a-bration sets that can be yours for FREE when you place an order over £45.

The final stamp set is Outlined Expressions which consists of 6 sentiment stamps which can be used individually or in partnership with each other.


I hope to show you this week how invaluable this set will be in your collection. So lets get started……….

My first card uses the much overlooked Brushed Gold card stock as its base which I’ve teamed with the lovely Cherry Cobbler.


The Cherry Cobbler layer I have embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder (117335) & the main heart was made using VersaMark ink & the Love Blossoms wheel (123839) from the mini catalogue. I then embossed this with gold embossing powder (109129) & used the Full Heart punch to punch out a piece that I really liked before using Stampin Dimensionals to adhere this to another strip of Brushed Gold cardstock (124917).


The stamp I’ve used from the SAB set is normally just an outline of the word but I wanted a more solid look so after embossing it first with gold embossing powder I carefully filled in the letters using another overlooked product – a VersaMarker (100901) which is basically a pen filled with VersaMark ink & is great for doing just this sort of job. One tip though do be CAREFUL when embossing the image again as you can so easily “burn” the first embossing you have done causing it to become very flat & dull looking.


Stamps: Outlined Occasions (w126014, c126016) Love Blossoms wheel (123839)

Card: Cherry Cobbler, Brushed Gold

Misc.: Gold Embossing Powder, VersaMark ink, VersaMarker, Full Heart punch (119883)

I hope you enjoyed this card & don’t forget to come back soon to see what else I have done with this stamp set.
