ESAD Sale - A - Bration March 2019 Blog Hop

Hello and thank you for making the time to visit my blog . There are just a few more weeks left before SAB ends . What is SAB ? Sale - a - Bration is the time of the year when you can earn free product with a qualifying purchase .
I have two cards to share with you today and I will step you through how you can earn the free product used on the cards.
The first is an idea I saw some time ago shared by Jo Anne Hewins . For this card , you stamp your scene , then punch the card front out using the Tailored Tag punch , then piece it back together leaving the background showing through . Now , I struggled to know exactly where to punch , so this is what I did. After I'd punched out the first piece by pushing the punch in as far as I could  turned my card front over and using a punched out scrap piece as my template I took a pencil and marked the area I needed to punch out . I have some photos which will help explain . I will also be doing a video next Friday night in my Facebook Live . I have copper embossed the horse image and sentiment and also the Garden Green trees , inking up in versa mark , then Garden Green.


I also copper embossed the smaller images onto the insert and the envelope .

Some photos of the process

I adore the Painted Seasons stamp set and matching framelets and have designed this next card using this set along with a few other items . I have inked up the succulent type flower using Bermuda Bay ink , then I have sponged around the edges using Mossy Meadow ink . I used the leaves from the same set as well as some leaves from Incredible Like You stamp set - they were perfect for my card !
