Still Sale-A-Brating!

Don't think I'm ever going to get tired of the endless combinations using all of the terrific Sale-A-Bration products!  Here's a fun birthday card that would be great for anyone – male, female, young or old!

  • Color scheme is Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango and Pool Party.
  • Be sure to grab yourself a package – or two or three! – of Sycamore Street designer paper before it's gone.  I'm loving all the different looks you can get with this very versatile paper.
  • The Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button pack will give you lots of coordinating embellishments – here I used the Tangerine Tango button and tied a pretty bow through the center with Pool Party Baker's Twine.
  • Cupcake is just one of the cute images in Patterned Occasions stamp set, a Sale-A-Bration exclusive!  I like to cut my stamps apart and use the image and the sentiment separately.
  • Happy Birthday sentiment on this card comes from Best Dad Ever stamp set.
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glitter puts the icing on the cupcake!  Don't forget your Two-Way Glue Pen to keep it in place.

I've met a really nice group of women at my fitness center's yoga class, and I thought I'd invite them over for tea and lattes after class.  We might even stamp a card together!  Just had to send a "proper" invitation, even though it's a very casual get together. 

Color scheme is Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral and Baja Breeze.
Tea cups are from Tea Shoppe stamp set – I cut the three in a row apart so I could use them individually more easily.
Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon is my only embellishment – but it's so pretty it's enough!
"You're Invited" is a part of the Oh, Hello stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso ink.

That's it!  I printed out all the info and instructions to my house and tucked them inside.  I'm looking forward to a fun time making new friends!

THINGS YOU'LL NEED:
Item No. 130730 Oh, Hello wood $25.95 OR
Item No. 130733 Oh, Hello clear $18.95

Stampin’ Up! Convention 2012 Swap

I leave for Convention in Salt Lake City in a little over 3 weeks, so I thought I'd begin making my swaps.  I've cut enough to make 100 of the card above, and then I'll design a second card and make 50 or so of those.  My new toys are beginning to arrive from the brand new Annual Catalog, and I wasn't sure which new stamp set to use, so I combined three different ones here, plus a new punch!  It's not a real easy card for a swap, but I started designing and couldn't stop adding!  Do you think my fellow demonstrators will like it?

  • Main leaf image and tone-on-tone stamping at the bottom are stamps from Summer Silhouettes stamp set.
  • Butterfly image is stamped with Papillon Potpourri stamp set and punched out with Elegant Butterfly Punch.
  • Color scheme includes two new In Colors – Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple.  They look so pretty together!
  • Black 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon is used to spice things up. 
  • Rhinestone Jewels are colored black with a Sharpie.
  • Black strip separating the two main colors is cut with the Big Shot and the Tasteful Trim Die.  It doesn't show a lot, but try taking it out – it just looked yucky without it!
  • Birthday sentiment is from the From My Heart stamp set.
  • Don't forget the Dimensionals!  Both the butterfly and the birthday sentiment are popped up.  It makes a big difference!

THINGS YOU'LL NEED:
Item No. 126445 Summer Silhouettes wood $24.94 OR
Item No. 126447 Summer Silhouettes clear $17.95
Item No. 126555 From My Heart wood $39.95 OR

More of the new In Colors

Two of my favorite products combine for this cute little box – Betsy's Blossoms stamp set and coordinating Betsy's Blooms Standard Wheel and the new In Colors for 2012-14.  I put this project together for my quarterly Stamp & Chat with my team of demonstrators.

  • You'll love how the bold images from Betsy's Blossoms stamp with the new stamp pads!
  • All the new In Colors are represented here – Midnight Muse, Primrose Petal, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit.
  • Base of the box in Primrose Petal is die cut with the Big Shot and the Fancy Favors Die.
  • Summer Starfruit patterned paper creates the belly band and can be found in Patio Party designer paper, or purchase the In Color Designer Paper Stack.
  • Linen Thread works nicely with the bird image – very natural kinda like nest material!
  • 1/8" Mini Brad in Silver is perfect for the bird's eye.
  • Mounting the Midnight Muse image on chipboard makes it more substantial.

And inside the box is a darling set of 3"x3" note cards perfect for gift enclosures.  Each is paired with our 3"x3" envelope and shows off our coordinating new 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon.

Please keep in mind that it is a process for me to collect orders, place orders, get the orders in, then cut and divide everything appropriately before mailing. Ribbons will be on cardboard sheets and protected with cellophane bags.  I will move as quickly as I can, but it can take a couple of weeks for you to receive your orders. Thank you in advance for your patience!

 

Email me the shares you're participating in today!
