Featuring Two new Sale-A-Bration products

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.

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!
