Fun Awesome Otters Stamp Set Cards - a FREE Sale-a-Bration selection


  • Awesome Otters Stamp Set  
  • A Way to earn more free Sale-A-Bration selections 
I love participating in card swaps with other Demonstrators.  I get to see so many ideas for using new stamp sets.  Today I'm sharing two swaps I received from other Demonstrators showing different ways to use the Awesome Otters Stamp Set.  This set is a Free Sale-A-Bration Selection that you can earn with a $50 order (less shipping and tax) until 28 February 2022. Both of these cards show so much detailed craftmanship and bring out the playfulness of these otters.  Other products highlights on these cards include the Hive 3-D Embossing Folder, Layering Diorama dies and the Bark 3-D Embossing Folder.  Full recipes for each card, below. You can find the Awesome Otters Stamp Set on Page 11 of the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, along with more cute card ideas.

Sale-A-Bration 2022 card ideas for using the Awesome Otters stamp set from Stampin' Up!

The first card is from Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Becky O'Donnell.  She used a basecard of Pool Party Cardstock.  Then a layer of Basic White Cardstock, and then one of the prints from the Hostess Party Pattern Designer Series Paper.  She then created an image layer out of a layer of Basic White dry embossed with the Hive 3-D Embossing Folder, and matted in a layer of Pool Party.

The Otter image is set on a layer of Pool Party and Basic White Circles die cut using the Layering Circle dies  The Otter image is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored with alcohol- based Stampin' Blends.  The sentiment she used is also from the Awesome Otters stamp Set.

The next card is from Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Tammie Pahan.  She began with a basecard of Night of Navy dry embossed with the Bark 3-D Embossing Folder.  She used the Layering Diorama Dies to create layers of Misty Moonlight, and Blends of Light Balmy Blue  and Smokey Slate accents on Basic White Cardstock to create a water-like setting for her Otter.
