Lasting Lily Wishing You Well

Tomorrow is the big day! All the items I’ve been sharing with you from the 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Brochure will be available to you! Today’s sneak peek is the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Lasting Lily. This 16 piece photopolymer set is part of Stampin’ Up!’s DistINKtive stamps line, which have the unique ability to apply color in differing degrees so one stamp shows many shades. They are so pretty! Most items in the Sale-a-Bration brochure are free with a $50 product purchase. But because this is a larger stamp set, you can earn it with a $100 purchase. It is so worth it – there are two different lilies with stems and leaves as well as 10 sentiments! I will be using this set for my Easter cards this year.

Sequins Make Life Grand, Dear Friend

I was so excited to discover that my pre-order would be delivered a day early! As soon as I got home from work yesterday, I dug in to check out all the fun goodies…and I was not disappointed! All products from the 2019 Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochure will be available beginning January 3, 2019. Here are the stamp sets I received today:

Preorder Stamp Sets
The Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper is bold, bright, and perfectly happy.  I must admit that I have not reached for the Pineapple Punch cardstock in a few months. But with it being a main color in the DSP, I quickly reached for it and I’m so glad I did.  I decided to make 3 cards using the same colors. You’ll get to see the other two in the next two days.

Calypso Pineapple Mambo
Today’s card features a large sentiment from the Life Is Grand set. The set is a DistINKtive set, which means the ink stamps in different intensities to allow for the look of shadowing and natural shading. Simply perfect! Here’s the card:

I want you to look closely at the die cutting…the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits emboss the stitching on both the die cut as well as the negative. I took a side photo, hoping that you can see that I die cut out the larger rectangle from the DSP before adhering it to the card. I then die cut out the sentiment with the next size smaller rectangle and popped it up on Dimensionals.

I added Poppy Parade Mini Striped Ribbon. It’s like the chameleon of ribbon as the striping makes it look like Melon Mambo on this card. I then finished it off  with the Iridescent Sequin Assortment. It was a quick and job since I used the Take Your Pick Tool to easily pick up one at a time and pop them on with glue dots. Love!
