YouTube Live Crafting REPLAY with Liz – End of Sale-a-Bration Countdown. Did you catch my YouTube Live earlier today? I shared two similar projects using three of the soon to be gone Sale-a-Bration FREE Products.
Both projects use the Beautifully Penned paper, the Be Dazzling paper and the Summer Shadows dies. The aim of the video was firstly to remind everyone that Sale-a-Bration is about to end, to focus on some of the items that will be going soon, but also to show how changing a couple of products can make a real difference to the final look of the project.
My first project used Fresh Freesia as the focus colour, with some Soft Succulent for the second colour. I selected the cute floral paper as the background, for a soft feel.
I layered this onto a Fresh Freesia mat and then coloured some of the Be Dazzling paper with the Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin Blend for the flowers and Light Evening Evergreen and Light Soft Succulent for the leaves.
The Be Dazzling pieces were added around a punch (using the Label me Lovely Punch) and the sentiment (stamped in Fresh Freesia Ink). Once these elements were in place I added some Fresh Freesia Ribbon, which helps ‘ground’ the project, but also to add another soft element. The finishing touch was to add some of the stunning In-Color Jewels!
My second version used Basic Black card and Magenta Madness to give it some ‘punch’. I used Magenta Madness Stampin’ Blends to colour the floral Be Dazzling elements, and Just Jade for the leaves.
I added a narrow strip of Be Dazzling, coloured with Dark Magenta Madness Stampin Blends, to the left of the card for some added ‘pop’.
To add more ‘pop’, the sentiment using White Embossing powder on Basic Black card. This was simply lined up against the strip of Be Dazzling and tucked in under the floral and foliage.
For this version I changed the In-Color Jewels for Elegant Faceted Gems, using the clear ones so that they added just a subtle shine. Adding more than this could have taken the card over the edge into ‘too much’ territory.
Which would you want to receive? Are you more of a Subtle glimmer kind of person, or are you someone who likes more of a ‘pop’ from their projects? I would love to know. You can either leave a comment here, or head over to my YouTube channel and let me know there.
