I wanted to share another neat item we made at our Occasions Catalog Kick Off last weekend. Since it was January, it was the perfect time to make a calendar….well, maybe December is the perfect time but we only missed 6 or 7 days:) I chose the new SU Waterfront stamp set to create a lovely scene that would not get tiresome over the year and appeals to both men and women.
It is hard to see in the photos but I brushed Wink of Stella on the water and sun to give it that little somethin’.
This is the same design I used on my calendars last year. You can see the post HERE.
I saw this cute idea from Sarah Klass using the friend die cut from Lovely Words
with the pop bottles in the SU Bubble Over stamp set.
The idea stuck in my head and came to life on my desk a week or so ago so we made it at our Kick Off Luncheon last weekend. I used the FREE Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper (DSP) behind my die cut and cut the straws from vellum…or invisible paper it seemed as we played with it at our luncheon…lol.
It was easy to create a bright palette for my card since I just pulled the colors from the DSP- Buermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral. I used some retired Bermuda Bay baker’s twine to add some texture. I used the negative of the larger bottle die on the inside and popped in a cute little label.
The Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper is just perfect with the Bubble Over Bundle. Not only does it have designs with pop bottles/pop caps but also designs with stripes/geometric shapes that can work with any stamp set. And the best part of it…it is a FREE Sale-a-Bration item with a $50 Sale-a-Bration order!!!
Happy Monday, friends! What a wonderful weekend I had with all my stamping buddies at our Annual Sale-a-bration Kick Off Luncheon! I still have to pinch myself when I think of all the special friends I have made since I became a demonstrator. Thanks to all of you who came and braved the cold- inside and ouside- heeheehee.
This is one of the 6 cards we made at our Occasions Catalog Kick Off.
It incorporates a technique called an Eclipse Effect.
How did I make it?
Well, I have another video for you!!
Sorry for all the Ummm-s.
My former homeschool students would not be happy
after all the years I told them….too many ummmms!!!
Hey there! I just got home from setting up for my big Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Kick Off Luncheon tomorrow. I drove through the rain, sleet, and snow of GA and SC on Wednesday and Thursday to get to Pittsburgh yesterday! I can’t wait to see all my girls! Woo Hoo!
I will show you all our goings on after the weekend…but for now,
here is a bright and cheery card I made with one of the super stamp sets called Beautiful Peacock
that you can choose for FREE with a $50 Sale-a-Bration order!
The Beautiful Peacock was one of the first stamps to catch my eye in the SAB line-up.
I just had to ink it up with Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist!
