It’s The End of the Sale As We Know It!

 

Today is the last day of Sale-A-Bration, so if you have had your eye on a Sale-A-Bration stamp set or paper or ribbon, this is your last day to earn it for free. Tomorrow they are gone forever, and some of the Sale-A-Bration products are already sold out. 

One of my favorite Sale-A-Bration stamp sets is the Delicate Details lace patterned stamps. This is a card made using one of the lace borders from the Delicate Details stamp set as well as a sentiment from the Designer Tee stamp set (Sale-A-Bration) and Sale-A-Bration ribbon. This year’s selection of free products to choose from has been fantastic! We are sad to see them go after today, so if you have a favorite, order now

I apologize for my lack of posts this week but my father was ill and I felt I could do more good helping them than posting here but I truly missed the creativity and sharing my love of stamping with you all. I promise to be full steam ahead next week with an upcoming class sample, Easter projects, a video and exciting announcements from Stampin’ Up!

Sale-A-Bration Card: Tasty Truck

The Tasty Truck Stamp Set Disappears March 31! 

This week I am sharing projects made with Sale-A-Bration items so you can see them in in action and don’t miss out because after March 31, they are no longer available. Isn’t this card cute? I have to admit, I received a card like this in a swap and liked it so much, I had to recreate it. The truck patterned background paper is a great example of how you can use your stamp sets to create patterned paper quickly and easily. I simply stamped the image repeatedly in Basic Black ink on Whisper White Cardstock and “patterned paper” was born! I then stamped the same image on a scrap sheet of watercolor paper and colored in the truck image with Watercolor pencils especially Melon Mambo. I painted the image with Aqua Painters and cut out the truck and mounted it with Stampin’ Dimensional to give it some depth. I stamped the sentiment in Whisper White Craft ink on Basic Black cardstock and punched the side with the Triple Banner Punch. Mount the stamped images on layers of Basic Black and Old Olive cardstock, add some Rhinestones and you now have a Sale-A-Bration card that you can use for birthdays, thanks yous and just because. The Tasty Truck stamp set is one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items available until March 31, so if you love this card, be sure to order today as after March 31, this stamp set is no longer available. Some Sale-A-Bration supplies are running out already but yesterday Stampin’ Up! released seven new items which you can view here. Check out all the details of Sale-A-Bration here

Here is the color palette for this project:

Sale-A-Bration is the biggest offer of the year and it ends March 31. It’s the only promotion of its kind that allows you to choose FREE products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog when you place a $50 order. If you are thinking of placing an order now is the time to do it because, after March 31, Sale-A-Bration is over for the year. I thought I’d share some of the products you could qualify for and what you can do with them this week. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity!

Here is the color palette for the card:

This card also uses items from the 2017 Occasions Catalog as well as the Annual Catalog. The background pattern is made with the new Hexagons Dynamic Texture Impression Embossing Folder (that’s a mouthful!) and what is so amazing about it is that it really does emboss your paper in such a way as it is 3D. So many creative things you can do with this embossing folder!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day – Quick and Easy Celebration Card!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Stamptastical Friends! I hope you have your green on, it could be “pinchy” out there today. I have to admit, green isn’t something I have a lot of in my wardrobe. I have exactly one green shirt and one green necklace and I wear them each year on St. Pat’s. So guess what I have on as I type this? You guessed it! Still, St. Patrick’s Day is a fun holiday full of history and celebration and who doesn’t love that?

Speaking of celebration, I whipped up this card last night to give to a friend for St. Patrick’s Day. This card is super quick and easy to create and what I love about it is that it highlights that just how you can use Stampin’ Up products for many different purposes. For instance, the shamrock in this card was made with the Sweetheart (Item # 133786) punch. Typically you might buy this punch only for Valentine’s Day, weddings, etc. However, with a little creative thinking, some Pinterest maybe, you can find a whole new world of possibilities for using your Stampin’ Up stash that really adds extra value to your purchase. If you have questions about any product you have ordered and you want to find new ways to use it and get the most out of your purchase, please contact me and I’ll be happy to help!  The shamrock is made from the Glimmer Paper Assortment pack that you can get for FREE during Sale-A-Bration when you place a $50 order but only until March 31. The paper is GORGEOUS, it contains 6×6″ sheets of glitter paper in Mint Macaroon, Bermuda Bay, and Sweet Sugarplum. They are only available while supplies last and they are super popular, so you need to get your order in ASAP. Click here to order safely online 24/7. 

I stamped the border from the Floral Phrases stamp set in Wild Wasabi and the Celebrate is from the Birthday Blast stamp set. Here is the color palette:

 

I hope you have a happy and safe St. Patrick’s day and I wish you all the luck in the world!

VIDEO: You Amaze Me Detailed Dragonfly Card

I have to admit that I like “girly” things, especially cards. I shared this card as a swap card with my demonstrator sisters in this area and since it had a couple of techniques and products from both the Occasions and the Annual catalog, I thought I’d share it with you and include a video so you could see exactly what those techniques are. 

 

Here is the color palette for this card:

You’re EGGstra Special!

Hellooooo Stamptastical Friends! How are we all settling into the time change? I don’t mind setting the clocks back in the fall because I gain an hour of sleep, but the spring is brutal! I go to bed an hour late and wake up an hour too early, or so my body says. Anyhoo, I wanted to share this card as it’s one we will be making at our Stamptastical March – Easter Greetings card class this Saturday. It uses the Basket Builder bundle (buy the Basket Bunch stamp set AND the Basket Builder dies together and save 10% off) as well as the Oh So Succulent Designer Series paper, all of which is in the 2017 Occasions Catalog. Now, I should warn you that IF you want to make this card, or you just love the sparkly Easter eggs as much as I do, you have to order now because supplies are going to be running out on the 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack and it won’t be available after March 31. That’s when Sale-A-Bration ends and you will no longer be able to choose free products with a qualifying order. You can find out more about Sale-A-Bration here

The color palette used for this card is as follows:

If you are interested in attending this Saturday’s class, you can sign up right on this blog when you click Classes and Events and select Register. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing some exciting Stampin’ Up! updates about Paper Pumpkin and a new technique, so I hope you will stop by. Wednesday I will have a project video for you as well. 

You might have noticed that the basket is a little shimmery as well. I used Wink of Stella to give it a shimmer. Love that stuff!

Had the BEST Weekend Ever!

Stamptastical Friends, I am flying high, I am so excited and happy! On Saturday, I attended a meeting of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and it was so fun, so educational, so informative and uplifting that I haven’t the words to explain it all! It was just an amazing experience with project demonstrations, tips and tricks, laughter, lunch, fellowship and encouragement. I reconnected with demonstrators I’ve known for years and years and made friends with the ones I just met. That’s one of the things I enjoy as a Stampin’ Up demonstrator is the fellowship and support from other demonstrators. You are immediately a member of a supportive family of creative people who share your interest and passion. 

One of the activities was a swap and I wanted to share their projects so you could see just how talented they are! I have attached their name and a link to their online store so you can contact them and ask them how they created their projects as I couldn’t begin to guess. They are THAT good!!! Ready? Here we go!
