March Easter and Sale-A-Bration Card Collection Now Available

I’m happy to let you know that there is now a brand new Card Collection ready for you from my Card Shop!  I’ll repeat the recent information update on my card kits from the last two months in case you missed it.

With the New Year comes a couple of changes to my free card kit program!  I’ve decided to streamline it a little bit.  I’ll be releasing my Stamp With Me card kits the first week of the month.  Then around mid-month, I’ll release the Card Collection for that month.


Here are the new March designs.  You’ll see some new Occasions Catalog products as well as Sale-A-Bration products, and some cards combining the old with the new!


You’ll notice that there are 4 rather than 8 cards in this Collection.  That’s because I’m going to utilize the other 4-card kit I’ve been designing as well.  You’ll still be able to receive 8 cards for your orders!  Read on to find out how.


Here are the options:

1.  Orders placed that are a minimum of $25 before tax/shipping will earn you EITHER the Stamp With Me card kit OR the new 4-card monthly Card Collection.


2.  Orders placed that are a minimum of $45 before tax/shipping will earn you BOTH the Stamp With Me card kit AND the new r-card monthly Card Collection.


Did you miss the Stamp With Me designs for this month?  Here they are again:

Both of these sets are available until March 30th or while supplies last.
Each month, I’ll choose 4 stamp sets and design 1 card with each stamp set for both the Stamp With Me and the Card Collection card kits.  That means you’ll have 2 samples of each of the 4 stamp sets to show the versatility of those 4 sets.

My card kits will still include pre-cut, pre-punched and pre-die cut cardstock pieces, along with all of the consumable accessories (ribbon, buttons, epoxy accents, etc.) needed to duplicate the featured cards.  Stamp With Me cards will no longer include envelopes.


You will receive a PDF tutorial, including full colored photos of each of the cards, along with cutting dimensions, supply lists and step-by-step instructions for assembly.


Pay for your kits or earn them free by placing a Stampin’ Up! order with me.  Ordering Code for the March cards is BTHFSZG2.


To place a qualifying order to receive your card kits FREE, click HERE to go to my online store and add Host Code BTHFSZG2 into your Shopping Cart. You’ll find the place to enter it in the lower left-hand corner of the Shopping Cart (not at checkout, just the Shopping Cart).


If you’d prefer, you can purchase the card kits rather than earning them free.  There is a nice price break if you purchase all 8 cards!  Use the button below to pay with any bank card.


For a 4-card set:  (Please specify whether you want the Stamp With Me card kit or the March Easter and Sale-A-Bration Card Collection.)


For all 8 cards:

Rose Wonder and Rose Garden Birthday

Rose Wonder and Rose Garden bundle



You don’t have to work very hard to create a great card using the Rose Wonder stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlits by Stampin’ Up!  This card went together in just a few minutes!


Are there any cross stitchers or embroiderers out there?  You know how you work at filling in the colored portion of your creation and it isn’t until you begin outlining the images with black thread that your needlework comes alive?  Or think of stained glass with the black lead between all the pretty colored glass.  Basic Black Cardstock cut out with Rose Garden Thinlits has a very similar effect!


And did you know – the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper offered free during Sale-A-Bration is still available!  It’s one of your many choices when you purchase $50 in Stampin’ Up! supplies, but only until March 31st!  I used the Melon Mambo and the Bermuda Bay pieces for this card.

  • The Melon Mambo designer paper piece is cut at 5″ x 3-3/4″ and is adhered to the Basic Black Cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″) and then to the Whisper White Cardstock base.
  • Then I cut out the beautiful rose image from Rose Garden Thinlits using Basic Black Cardstock and the Big Shot.  The Precision Base Plate will be helpful with being able to get the thin cardstock out of the thinlit frame.
  • Next cut pieces of the Bermuda Bay designer paper just slightly bigger than the two leaves.
  • The Fine-Tip Glue Pen will be your best friend with this thinlit set.  It’s so easy to apply the small amount of adhesive needed along each of the thin, black cardstock pieces.
  • Apply glue all along the back side of the leaf pieces and adhere the Bermuda Bay designer paper to the two leaves.  Simply trim away the excess with Paper Snips.
  • Now you’re ready to adhere the rose image in place – you can use SNAIL Adhesive on the back side of the leaves, but use your Fine-Tip Glue Pen again for the thin pieces that make up the rose.

  • Now all that’s left is to create a sentiment!  And the Rose Wonder stamp set has so many great ones – birthday, thank you, wedding and sympathy.  Included in the stamp set is the stamp for the label, and the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies contain a thinlit to cut it out.
  • Be sure to create some dimension by popping the sentiment up with Dimensionals.


Don’t Forget!
