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.

Amazingly Sweet Birthday

Oh My Goodness! This card is so sweet, I need to brush my teeth! The Designer Series Paper on this card is from the How Sweet It Is Suite on pages 14-15 of the 2019 Occasions Catalog. This particular striped piece was the complete inspiration for this card. I don’t have the matching stamp set and dies yet, but the stamp set Incredible Like You has a whimsical style that pairs great with the colorful paper.  It is so easy to line up the flower layers for detailed two-step stamping. I can’t wait for you to be able to get your hands on this stamp set and paper…they will both be available on January 3, 2019!

Rooted in Retirement

Today’s card is a pretty Retirement card. I don’t brush the dust off my Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder nearly often enough. It makes a lovely background against the tree. And did you look closely at the tree? I used the brush end of the Stampin’ Write markers and colored the leaves first in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive. Then I added highlights of Mossy Meadow by using the Thumping Technique. It’s such an easy technique. I literally just randomly dabbed the marker onto it. Makes such a pretty watercolor look!

Rooted in Blissful Nature

There are still a few days left for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion on select Designer Series Paper (see list at the end of the post). I just opened my pack of the Nature’s Poem paper and it is so gorgeous! I am thrilled that Blackberry Bliss was brought out of retirement to become a core color – the richness of it pairs perfectly with lighter colors. These double-sided papers are the perfect complement to the Rooted in Nature bundle. What’s super fun about the dies in this are the inclusion of embossing dies. Take a closer look at the die cut leaves on the card. I ran the cardstock through the Big Shot twice – once to cut the outline and a second time with an embossing die for texture. You definitely need the Big Shot Embossing Mats for this card. Wonderful effect! This card is the one I made as my thank you to my club members. I included a card in each of their orders. I always want them to know I’m thankful for them!

Garden Impressions Day 4

Today is my final day of highlighting the Garden Impressions 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper Stack. I thought the subtlety of Soft Sea Foam as the background color would help balance the boldness of the Melon Mambo roses. This sentiment from the Stitched All Around stamp set is the perfect counter-balance of whimsy. As you look back over the past few days, you will notice that all the cards use not only the same Designer Series Paper, but also the same ribbon and I took a mix-and-match approach with the Stitched All Around bundle of stamps and dies as well as the Enjoy Life and Rooted in Nature stamp sets and the Layering Ovals Framelits.  With just a few tools, the options are endless!

If you missed the previous posts, you can see the cards here for Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.

Garden Impressions Day 1

While the month of July is Stampin’ Up!’s buy 3 get 1 free promotion for select Designer Series Paper, I thought it would be the perfect time to show some cards that focus on the bold, bright punch of color in the Garden Impressions stack. I’ll share more in the coming days.

Garden Impressions Day 1
This card makes me smile just looking at it, as it takes me back to my Junior High School days. Back then, I loved to sew and make my own clothes. With the joys of Pinterest, I was actually able to find the exact Butterick pattern that I had. And, with it being the 80’s, you know it was all about mixing and matching bold, bright gorgeous colors just like the ones featured in this card. Thanks for taking a walk down memory lane with me!
