Tiny Treats for Sale-A-Bration

Time To Celebrate Boxes

What do you think of these Tiny Treat Boxes decorated with Sale-A-Bration ribbon and designer paper?  I made them for my team who attended this past weekend’s fun card-making event.  We got together to make 20 card samples all using Sale-A-Bration stamp sets!  In my opinion, these are the best stamp sets for a Sale-A-Bration event that Stampin’ Up! has ever created.  I just love them all!

These little treat boxes held 8 Hershey’s chocolate assorted mini candy bars perfectly and acted as a little favor for the festivity.  They’re big enough to actually hold something substantial, but they’re small enough so you don’t have to buy too much to fill them – they’re 2″ square.

I cut 1″ x 6″ strips of the Sale-A-Bration Best Year Ever Designer Paper, adhered one end to the bottom back side of the cube with Fast Fuse Adhesive, then just wrapped around the 3 sides (no paper on the very bottom).  I tied the Coastal Cabana ribbon from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack around the entire box and tied it in a bow.

Did you catch the sentiment – “time to celebrate” for our Sale-A-Bration event!  It’s from the Time to Celebrate hostess-exclusive stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.  I adhered it to the box with a Dimensional on either side, being careful not to catch the designer paper.  This way, you don’t have to ruin the wrappings to get at the chocolate.  Simply untie the bow and slide the designer paper out from under the tag.  Clever, huh?!

These are just two of the gifts you can choose for every $50 you spend during Stampin’ Up!’s biggest sale event of the year – Sale-A-Bration.  Click HERE to view the 2015 Sale-A-Bration Brochure.

Hey, Valentine!

Hey Valentine

You’re going to love working with the sweet images in the new Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Hey, Valentine.  And today I’m also showing you two separate gifts you can receive during the biggest sale event of the year – Sale-A-Bration.  With each $50 you spend from now until the end of March, choose among fabulous free gifts in the new Sale-A-Bration brochure.  The two featured in this card are the Best Year Ever Designer Paper and the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack.  I used some of the three ribbons in the accessory pack, but you’ll also receive coordinating buttons.

A circle theme is a great one when there’s fish and bubbles involved!  The background of the card is Coastal Cabana cardstock run through the Big Shot using the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.  The designer paper has a circle pattern, and I even rounded the corners of the main image using the Envelope Punch Board.  Yep, best corner rounder ever – two for one use on this great tool!

Stampin’ Write Markers were used to color in this cute image.  Color scheme in the designer paper is Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Whisper White.  Don’t forget to use StazOn Black Ink to stamp your image when you want to do some coloring!

Be Mine, Valentine

Be Mine

I love a classic red, black and white look!  And that’s why I love the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack that’s in the new Stampin’ Up! 2015 Occasions Catalog.  There’s some Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe mixed in, too.  And true to form, Stampin’ Up! has designed the prints to coordinate with each other beautifully.

My other most favorite new-catalog product is the Sheltering Tree stamp set.  You’re going to get such a bang for your buck with this versatile stamp set!  It’s great for every season, and I even created a Valentine tree (with the help of the tiny hearts in You Plus Me stamp set).

I also used the “Be Mine” stamp from You Plus Me inside of a Real Red cardstock punch from Sweetheart Punch.

AND if you purchase the You Plus Me stamp set and Stacked With Love DSP as a bundle, you’ll save 15%!

Last Day for Stampin’ Up! 2014 Holiday Catalog

HolidayCatalogpic

Wow, has the time ever flown!  The Stampin’ Up! 2014/15 Holiday Catalog came out on August 28th, and it’s time to say goodbye!  On January 5th, most products will be gone forever (with a few carrying over).  That must say something about how busy my life has been during this period of time.  We moved in mid-August, and we’re still not quite settled in.  There’s so much to do to a new place!  In September, I was privileged to be a part of a very exclusive card swap with the amazing women on the Founders Circle, Stampin’ Up!’s Top 100 in the US and Top 20 in Canada.  I received over 100 beautiful samples of products from the Holiday Catalog.  Sadly, I didn’t have time to use them to the fullest, but this the last day of the catalog, I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.  Why not place a last-minute order and get some of these great products for next year!

Bravo for Paws!

Bravo paws

My youngest grandson is turning 5!  I can’t believe how these years have flown!  He’s a huge fan of Paw Patrol and his mom has themed his birthday party around it.  So it was off to my stampin’ studio to figure out how to translate that theme into a card.

  • “Wow” kinda summed up my disbelief that he’s turning 5, so I pulled out the Bravo stamp set.  It’s also a little cheesy but I kept thinking “wow wow” for “bow wow” – I know it’s a stretch!
  • The paw is made with the Hearts Thinlits and Sm. Oval Punch.  I popped them up on Dimensionals for more of a 3D effect.
  • My color scheme replicated “Chase” who looks like this (for those of you without a 5-year-old boy)!  Guess I maybe should have used Chocolate Chip instead of Basic Black!
    chase
  • The Star Embossing Folder created the fun background on the Crushed Curry cardstock.
  • A fun accent for a young boy is the black and white Baker’s Twine.  Not much else needed!

New Stampin’ Up! Products for 2015!

Chalk Inks and Balloon Bash

I know it’s less than 2 weeks until Christmas and I should be showing more Christmas ideas, but my demonstrator pre-order products from the new Occasions Catalog just arrived and I had to take a few minutes to play!  The new products I’m most excited about are the Chalkboard Paper and the Chalk Ink Pads!    I’ve combined them here along with a new must-have stamp set called Balloon Bash – a terrific new birthday set.

  • There are three different colors of Chalk Inks – Aquamarine, Rose Coral and Yellow Citrus.  They don’t follow the Stampin’ Up! color names, but here I’ve paired them with Crushed Curry, Island Indigo and Blushing Bride.
  • The main image is stamped in Aquamarine.  I then stamped it again in Rose Coral for the “just for you” banner, cut it out and adhered it on top with Dimensionals.
  • I did the same thing with the word “birthday” – stamped in Yellow Citrus and cut it out, then adhered it to the card with Dimensionals.
  • For a full chalkboard effect, I used my White Craft Stamp Pad and a Sponge Dauber and with very light pressure, added some “chalk dust” around the sides of the image.
