Sale-a-Bration Sneak Peek- Epic Celebrations

December 15, 2017

A card swap I participate in picked Sale-a-Bration freebies for the focus this month.
I was super excited to get out my new toys and play.
One stamp set that caught my eye was Epic Celebrations- a great stamp to use for teens:)

I thought the color block design really showed off the images with some fun bright colors! The guitar image is stamped on a piece of 1-7/8″ x 5″ Bermuda Bay cardstock and the headphones and the sneakers images are stamped on Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst cardstock,  both cut to  1-7/8″ x 2-1/2″.  *Keep these measurements on hand;) I set the color block pattern on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White cardstock on a black card base.  I used a 1-1/4″ circle punch for the sentiment and bordered it with a 1-1/2″ black circle. A little color decorates the inside.

I used my Number of Years stamp set with the Large Numbers Framelits, too.

Sale-a-bration begins on January 3 and for every $50 you spend, you get to choose from a number of fun new stamps, embellishments, and more. This year, you even get to pick an exclusive stamp set or a set of thinlits for a $100 purchase.

SU A Little Wild Mash-Up

November 6, 2017

Oh my, I fell in love with the SU A Little Wild Bundle when I first saw it. It is such an adorable stamp set! Take a look at this video by Donna at the SU Home Office:

Here is a card I made with the Bundle:

 

*My DSP is 1-3/4″ x 5″ and the Pear Pizzazz border is 2″ x 5-1/4.”

 

Please note that this card was inspired by two talented demonstrators, Michelle Last and Sandy Mott. I got Michelle’s swap on my Thailand trip. Michelle’s watercoloring was awesome. Me, being not so adept at watercoloring, opted to simply use my super new alcohol markers, Stampin’ Blends! When I got a card from my friend Sandy, I also loved her color scheme and choice of DSP:) So, I mashed them up!

SU Beautiful Bouquet with Everyday Jar Framelits

August 26, 2017

I played around with some watercoloring with the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle after seeing so many pretty cards done with this technique- the first one I saw was Sandi MacIver’s creation that inspired me. The bouquet is so gorgeous it can just stand alone on a card but I placed mine in an embossed vellum jar:)

I used my Ruffled Embossing Folder for the backround- so elegant, so vintage…don’t you think?

A bit of gold really dresses up the card, too!

Notice the only stamping on the card is the sentiment! However, there are a TON of flowers and greenery in the set- it is so packed with versatile stamps that mix and match with so many other sets. Take a look on Pinterest under “Stampin’ Up Beautiful Bouquet.” The flowers were die cut from watercolor paper and then moistened with Flirty Flamingo ink using an aquapainter so the Berry Burst ink would run a bit when added last with the aquapainter again. Every one turns out differently so play around and don’t be too picky!

SU Daisy Delight

July 26, 2017

Today is my little girl’s birthday! In just two short months she will be walking down the aisle…

So in honor of her today…here is a birthday card made with the  Daisy Delight Bundle.

It’s so easy to create a half daisy- just cut a full size punched flower in half and stagger the petals- a neat alternative look to do with the Daisy Bundle. As you can see, I made a trio of cards using sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. I used the coordinating Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper- one of my faves this year!

Happy Birthday, Gorgeous Bundle

June 14, 2017

We had our Annual Catalog Kick-Off Luncheon/Dinner last Saturday and Sunday. We made three cards, fueled up with some food, and made three more cards. It just blows me away how blessed I am to have all these crafty ladies in my life! Thank you, Stampin’ Up for bringing us all together!!!

Here is one of the cards we made using the delicious new Berry Burst and Lemon Lime colors:)


It is hard to see in the photo, but I embossed the white panel with the retired Polka Dots EF. Any embossing folder would add texture to the card, though. I just could not get my paws on my new OH MY STARS embossing folder at the time…lol. Isn’t that new self adhesive In Color Itty Bitty Bow just too cute?!?! And, we tried out the new adhesive sheets on the Happy Birthday thinlit which was easy peasy!

Look at these cute little images on the inside, too!

I love that the Happy Birthday thinlit is a stand alone item, but the stamp set it is bundled with at a 10% discount is awesome! I love the variety of sentiments, the balloons, flowers/leaves/stems, and the little tassel and bow:) I say it’s a little bit of everything! And, of course, many of us need that “belated” sentiment from time to time…
