Featuring Two new Sale-A-Bration products

Flowering Fields2



Flowering Fields1



I have two cards for you today – two different versions of the same thing – because I couldn’t make up my mind!  Both cards feature the Wildflower Fields Designer Paper coupled with Flowering Fields stamp set, two of the wonderful choices this year with Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration promotion.

 

New to Sale-A-Bration?  Here’s the deal: for every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping), you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration product. That means it’s the perfect time to purchase those products you’ve had your eye on while earning more products for free.  Want more bang for your bucks?  Spend at least $250 and receive FIVE Sale-A-Bration products free, as well as $25 more in additional host benefits, making it a minimum of $50!

 

I’ve had several people ask me lately how I come up with designs.  I have to admit, every single card I design, I start with a good, solid layout.  There are many great online sources, including Splitcoast Stampers, Mojo Monday and Pinterest, as well as your own Stampin’ Up! catalogs, both past and present.  And did you know that you can click on the button in my navigation bar that says “Galleries” and see at a glance every single project I’ve ever posted?!  Then just use one of my layouts.  You’ll be off to a great start and only have to choose your colors, DSP, stamps and accessories then plug them into place.

  • The beautiful color scheme is Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Old Olive.  How rich and classy!
  • Adjusting the opening direction changes up your cards a bit.  The first card opens at the side so your cardstock base is 4-1/4″ x 11″.  The second card flips up from bottom to top, so the card base is cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.
  • I’ve combined Thoughts & Prayers stamp set – a tried and true one for sympathy and get well cards.  The colors work well for this purpose.
  • I’ve kept the accents simple – a couple of White Perfect Accents and Candy Dots, along with a Linen Thread double bow held in place with a Glue Dot.
  • Be sure to use Dimensionals to give more interest to your different pieces!

One of the images is colored in with Stampin’ Write Markers in Hello Honey, Old Olive and Calypso Coral.

The other image is colored in with a White Gel Pen.  Just let it dry completely before handling so that you don’t get the little white smudge like I did!

Bloomin’ Love Valentine

Bloomin Love Valentine



We’ve all fallen in love with the Love Blossoms bundle in the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Occasions Catalog!  The Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies are delicate and detailed and oh, so pretty!  But let’s explore the pretty Bloomin’ Love stamp set a bit more!  For this card, I didn’t use the large heart thinlit, but I did use the two small flower thinlits that are also contained in the set.

  • Like so often, my color scheme comes from the Love Blossoms designer paper that is part of the Love Blossoms suite – Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake (I changed it to Sahara Sand), Garden Green, Rose Red and Whisper White. 
  • I’ve used a piece of that designer paper 2″ wide to set the stage.  Sahara Sand Lace borders the edge – use Fast Fuse Adhesive to hold the lace to the back of the designer paper.
  • The Garden Green tag gets its pretty topper from the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.
  • I stamped the heart image from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set in Garden Green ink on Whisper White cardstock.  There isn’t a framelit to cut this heart shape, so I just “fussy cut” around the image with my Paper Snips.
  • I added a bit of Sahara Sand Lace and White Baker’s Twine through the top.

 

Bloomin Love Valentine closeup



  • Flowers are cut out using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies in both Rose Red and Blushing Blossom cardstock.  They’re adhered at different levels using either SNAIL Adhesive or Dimensionals.
  • I added Pearl Jewels to each flower center.

Bloomin Love Valentine inside



  • No room for a sentiment on the front of the card, but that’s okay – you have the full inside of the card to say what you’d like!  And you can also dress it up with leftover designer paper to coordinate with the front.

 

And Weekly Deals were announced this morning!  Add on your favorite deal to your Valentine’s order!

Happy Home Birthday

Happy Home Birthday


 

The new 2016 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog is full of fun products for birthday cards.  And again I love mixing the old with the new.  Here the “old” is the Cupcake Punch, which takes on a fresh, new look when coupled with some of the new products.

  • The Have A Cuppa designer paper stack is SOOOOO versatile!  Here’s a card using this paper for a Valentine’s Day Card.  And now here’s a piece that has a cute cupcake image – as well as two other pretty prints.
  • The color scheme – Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Wisteria Wonder and Basic Black – comes from colors in the entire pack.
  • The new Baker’s Twine  Combo Pack contains two spools – one that’s Black and Mint Macaron and one that’s Black and Melon Mambo.  Grab some Glue Dots to  stick your Baker’s Twine on with.
  • It’s My Party Enamel Dots contains 96 enamel dots, 16 each in 3 colors and 2 sizes, including Melon Mambo.

Groovy Kind of Love Valentine

Groovy L ove Valentine



Our next card-giving holiday is Valentine’s Day, and it’s my favorite holiday for which to create cards.  This year, Stampin’ Up! has given us so many Valentine’s Day products, both in the new 2016 Occasions Catalog and in the larger Annual Catalog, I’m not sure I’ll be able to show them all!

  • For this card, I’m once again combining the old and the new.  Groovy Love is a – well – “groovy” stamp set in the Annual Catalog that coordinates with the Sweetheart Punch.  I love all the different images and sentiments in this one set – it could keep you busy for a long time!
  • In the Occasions Catalog, there is a paper stack called Have A Cuppa.  It goes with our tea suite and it is so adorable!  But I thought I’d wait until Mother’s Day to show all of the cuteness to this suite.  Looking through the papers, I noticed that there are several pieces with hearts, so it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, too!  And as always, using Stampin’ Up! designer paper gives you a “no-brainer” color scheme for your card.  I just picked up the colors in the designer paper to use as my solids – Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate (although the designer paper is Basic Gray, but I wanted a lighter feel).
  • A really pretty new accent in the Occasions Catalog are the Botanical Gardens Jewels.  It’s a pretty silver flower with attached rhinestone in the center.  I’m going with the “flower power” idea on my groovy card!
  • It’s really fun to create custom-sized cards so that you’re not always locked into filling the standard space.  This card measures 3-1/2″ x 6″ so that I could take advantage of a longer, thinner card front.  And I can easily create the perfect-sized envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.  All I needed was an 8″ x 8″ piece of cardstock and the instructions on the board.  I like Multipurpose Adhesive to put my envelope together.  And while you’re making your envelope, you can use the Punch Board to round the corners on the designer paper – a two-in-one tool!

Groovy Love Valentine alone


  • Here’s a close-up photo so you can see the Botanical Garden Jewels accessory a little better.  They’re super easy to use – just adhere with a Glue Dot.  Pick up a container or two on your next order!

Bloomin’ Heart Love You

Bloomin Heart Valentine



 

Stampin’ Up! has really outdone themselves with the 2016 Occasions Catalog!  It’s going “live” to customers tomorrow, January 5th!  And my card features a couple of my top picks from our new publication – the Love Blossoms Suite, including a Bundle & Save 15% opportunity to purchase the Bloomin’ Love photopolymer stamp set and the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies.

  • You’re going to just love the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper – so, so pretty!  I’ve cut it out using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit Die with the Big Shot.  The Precision Base Plate and a new product – the Die Brush – will make it super simple to get your glimmer paper heart out of the thinlit frame.
  • I really like combining existing merchandise with new products to give a fresh look.  This background is the Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.
  • In the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, you’ll receive this pretty banner frame along with 4 different sentiments that fit inside – perfect for sending love to anyone in your life!  There’s a coordinating banner framelit in the Large Numbers Framelits Dies, or you can snip by hand using your Paper Snips.  Be sure to pop it up on Dimensionals!
  • A pretty little Black Satin Ribbon bow is all the accessorizing you’ll need!
