A Celebration of Sale-a-Bration

There’s just so much to love about Sale-a-Bration (SAB) this year…and you have less than a month to snag these free products! The celebration will end March 31, 2019. Don’t start kicking yourself on April 1st because you didn’t get what you just HAD to have and missed out on!

These quick and easy cards start with a Whisper White Notecard layered with the amazingly beautiful Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (SAB). Wrapped around that is a piece of Daffodil Delight from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (SAB). That is topped with a sentiment from the Part of My Story (SAB) stamp set die cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits. Did you catch the pattern here? These cards showcase three of the products you can earn for free!

Horse Home Décor and Coordinating Card

I have a sweet daughter that loves horses. Imagine my happiness when I spied the new Let It Ride stamp set in the Occasions catalog on page 45. I knew it was perfect for her Birthday card and a home décor piece I’ve been wanting to make for her. I used a 9” x 9” Shadow Box frame I picked up at Michael’s. I love the look of the barn wood from the Holiday Catalog’s Festive Farmhouse DSP and knew it would coordinate perfectly. All of the supplies are Stampin’ Up! except for the horse die (Poppystamps). Her Birthday was yesterday, so I can safely share this with you today. Happy 19th, Hunter Danette!

JOS Color Challenge

I have spoken previously about a fun Facebook group I belong to – The Joy of Sets. Fiona, the administrator, conducted polls for everyone to vote on their favorite colors in each Stampin’ Up color family. After the results, she challenged everyone to make a card using all 5 colors. Here were the top 5:

jos color challenge
It’s super cold here in Southwest Michigan right now and I have basically been hibernating under my blankie on the couch, watching too much TV. Hunter said she wanted to take on the challenge, so she got me off the couch and into the stamping room. Once I started, I really enjoyed spending some stamping time with her. I decided to ink up two new sets from the 2019 Occasions catalog – Bloom by Bloom and Itty Bitty Birthdays. You can never have too many flower or Birthday stamps. I die cut an oval out of some scrap paper and used that as my mask. I had planned on using my new Shimmery Embossing Paste I received today, but it was frozen. Seriously. Sponging was the next best idea, which I did using Pool Party. Then I spritzed on some Lemon Lime Twist. The card came together pretty fast after that and I can’t believe how easy it was to put these 5 colors together. Fun!

Extreme Holographic Shiny Paper

Let me preface this by telling you, if you didn’t already know, that I am all about anything holographic. Well, let’s talk about these Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets.  Holy Holosexual! They are beyond extreme when they are run through the Big Shot with an embossing folder! I thought yesterday’s card with Lovely Lipstick was beautiful (you can see that card here)…well, this makes me squeal!

In Celebration of Shiny Paper

A few winters back, as I would drive Hunter to school in the mornings, there was a silly commercial we would hear every day. I’m pretty sure it was for a heating and air conditioning business, but what we DO remember vividly is the part of the commercial where they talked about things at Christmastime…including, and I quote, “shiny paper”.  Oh my, did we ever make fun of that! We’d say “shiny paper” in the whiniest of voices. It was hilarious! As soon as I spied the Foil Sheets in the Sale-a-Bration brochure, that instantly popped into my head! What a great memory. So, in celebration of “shiny paper”, I thought it would be fun to run it through my new Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder. Wow! The paper is pretty as it is, but when you add the dimension of dry embossing, it is on a whole new gorgeous level! It comes in a package that includes 4 sheets each of both Lovely Lipstick (shown here) and Grapefruit Grove. What’s even better is that you can get it free with any $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration!

So Hoppy for Sale-a-Bration!

I am always excited about Sale-a-Bration time and that has not waned in 2019! Look at this adorable frog! So stinkin’ cute! He’s part of a stamp set called So Hoppy Together and the set can be earned for FREE with a minimum order of $50 (before tax and shipping). But wait…there’s more! I used another item you can choose from out of the brochure. The green and black striped Designer Series Paper is from the Botanical Butterflies collection that is also a Sale-a-Bration item.  The package contains 12 sheets of double sided 12” x 12” paper that has colored images on one side and black and white on the other. Love it when I can use my Stampin’ Blends and color it exactly to match my card! I decided to use the new Gingham Gala Sequins in Grapefruit Grove to give it a pop of color.  I really had a ton of fun with this Birthday card!

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.
