Today’s BS & J Productions’ Stamp Off Challenge is to use our favorite Sale-a-bration product. The Sale-a-bration Catalog is full of products you can earn for free with a qualifying purchase. There are stamp sets, dies, ribbons, embellishments and Designer Series Paper in this catalog.
I decided to use the stamp set called Lasting Lily. This set is a DisINKtive® stamp set. This kind of stamp was especially developed by Stampin’ Up!®. The stamps show depth to them without having to do anything special other than inking them up and stamping them.
I love it when I use black and white with a pop of color so I decided to make my card that way. The Designer Series Paper I used is also from the Sale-a-bration Catalog (which means you can also get it for free with a qualifying order). It is called Botanical Butterfly. This DSP has brightly colored butterflies and other patterns on one side and black and white patterns on the other.
I stamped the lilies in Flirty Flamingo ink and then cut them out. Then I stamped the stems and leaves on Whisper White cardstock using Granny Apple Green and then cut it out using my Layering Circles Framelits in my Big Shot. I cut a larger circle out in Basic Black cardstock. I adhered the circles to each other and then onto the cardstock. I adhered the flowers on top. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my Heat Gun. I hand cut out the ends of the banners.
Now let’s go see what products Jackie and Buffy used. I am sure you are going to love their projects. They are both amazing crafters!

Susan, this is just a stunning card. I love strong colors against black and white. I love that you cut out the flowers so that they “protrude” beyond the circle. So lovely
This is lovely, Susan. I agree with Jackie about the colors against the black and white, and the “out of the circle” flowers. Your images are perfect! (I’m still trying to get my lilies to look like something other than a big blob.) Gorgeous!
I love these lilies, and the colour choice is spot on! The look great outside the circle, and the black & white background really makes them pop!
