I pulled out the Sale-a-bration Coordination Sending Flowers Dies coming out on February 4th. The dies compliment the Sending You Thoughts Free Sale-a-bration Gift with purchase.
How awesome are those dies? The die set has two dies to fit sentiments, two dies to die cut the flowers, and one to create the field of flowers!
The addition of the bee from the January 2020 Paper Pumpkin I’ll Bee Yours and the sentiment from the December 2019 Paper Pumpkin Something for Everything really finished off the card! So happy to have those Paper Pumpkin stamps handy even after the kit is used:)
I also made this 4-1/4″ square card with the Sending Flowers Dies and a sentiment from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set. You can customize your flowers with any color and just adhere them to the die cut of the stems with the flowers. I popped up a few of the flowers with Mini Dimensionals- it looks so sweet:)
I have a sneak peek of the Birthday Dies coming out on February 4
with the Sale-a-bration Coordination!
They coordinate with the Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set available during Sale-a-bration.
With the Birthday Dies, you can die cut the cake, the flowers, the stand, and two sets of leaves.
Oh, look at those delicate leaves that are in the Birthday Dies:
They are just gorgeous with embossing built in them!
The beautiful floral patterns in the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper pairs well with the flowers on the cake. Just 1-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ of DSP adds so much to the card. The Pear Pizzazz Panel is embossed with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder. I was inspired to make this card from a shoebox swap card done by my friend, Cyndi Lott. She had an oval under the cake and did not use the cake stand, leaves, or strip by the DSP. I changed it up a bit but wanted to thank Cyndi for the total inspiration- her card was stunning!
Because I used a white card base, I colored a die cut of the single flower at the top of the cake for the inside. If I had colored directly on the card base with the alcohol based Stampin’ Blends, the ink would have bled through to the back of the card.
The Birthday Dies are available while supplies last starting on February 4th.
I had a fun day yesterday at my friend Ann Hillery’s home. She hosted a shoebox swap for demonstrators to share ideas. We each brought a finished card and kits for others to make the same card. We went from one table seat to another table seat working on the cards. Everything was die cut for us- we just stamp, color, assemble. It is always a great time, and the three soups made by Ann and Linda Briel along with salad and pumpkin bundlt cake and raspberry crumb bars for lunch were delicious! My friend Patti Sharkey had this Parisian Beauty for us to make:
I love all the patterns in the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper
but the script is especially striking in the champagne metallic against the Petal Pink background. Tip: Using a 3″ x 4″ piece of the luxurious paper not only makes a statement but also stretches your paper to get 12 pieces from a 12″ x 12″ piece.
The black Eiffel Tower really pops off the card. There is not a die for the flower so I did have to fussy cut the flowers but I did it with minimal whining…
I had fun making this cutie using the Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies Bundle.
I made a Pull Up Pocket Fun Fold showing off the festive Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper.
Here is a video showing how easy it is to make one of these fun fold gift card holders.
I love all the colors you can work with in the Birthday Bonanza DSP.

that means any order over $50 gets a free gift!
Oh my, I was blown away with how pretty the Stampin’ Up! Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder is when I used it…especially when I used the Champagne Foil!
The Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper is so, so gorgeous with its accents of metallic champagne. I love the Pool Party, Petal Pink, and Cherry Cobbler included in the paper’s color palette. The Petal Pink Metallic Edged Ribbon is just so elegant.
The Parisian Beauty Bundle is featured along with the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Bundle in the Parisian Blossoms Suite on pages 14-17 of the Stampin’ Up Mini Catalog.
I like how the inside turned out, too!
Did you notice I did not even use any ink on this card? The “merci” is a die cut!
