Best Day Ever – 2015 Sale-A-Bration

Best Day Ever

There are so many terrific Stampin’ Up! special products that you can take free.  But remember, this is the final month for Sale-A-Bration, the biggest sales event of the year!  Be sure to stock up on all of your basic consumables this month – things like adhesive, cardstock and envelopes – to earn free products.

Today I’m featuring the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Best Day Ever.  And good news – you can choose wood mount, clear mount or photopolymer!  Here are all of the images you’ll receive with this great little set –

best day ever stamp set

  • I wanted to try a rainbow effect with my color scheme, but was tired of the traditional bright colors.  Just for fun, I tried combining 2 Subtles colors (Pear Pizzazz and Calypso Coral) with 3 Regals colors (Rose Red, Crushed Curry and Island Indigo) for a bit of a different look.
  • I stamped each color of flower, turning the petals so that the striped one ended up in a different place each time.
  • Do you sometimes need more Black Candy Dots than all the rest of the neutrals color pack?  I definitely go through them more quickly!  For this card, I used the Very Vanilla Candy Dots (which I don’t seem to use very often) and colored them black with a sharpie.  It worked great!
  • Don’t forget to pop the main image up on Dimensionals!

Bye-bye Sale-A-Bration!

This is the last day of Sale-A-Bration!  This terrific sale ends at Midnight Mountain Time – but don't wait too late!  The online ordering system could potentially get bogged down towards the end.

I want to leave you with my last Sale-A-Bration project using some of the yummy designer paper found in the Sycamore Street paper pack and a pretty Rich Razzleberry button from the Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack.  I love how this page turned out and plan to use it for photos of my little granddaughter Quinn.  She brings such sunshine into my life!

Here's a close-up of the "flower garden".  I've used the Blossom Punch for the left and right flowers and the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch for the center.  The leaves are created with the Blossom Petals Builder Punch.  I just ran my Bone Folder down the center and popped them up a little.  Centers are created with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch and the 3/4" Circle Punch with Daffodil Delight card stock.  The two larger flowers have Silver Basics Designer Buttons and Rich Razzleberry Ribbon through the centers, while the smaller uses the Sale-A-Bration button with White Baker's Twine tied in a pretty bow.  And of course I had to use my favorite scrapbooking tool – the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die – to create the white rick-rack.

The sun is created with the Daydream Medallions stamp set, stamped tone-on-tone with Daffodil Delight and cut out with the Floral Frames Framelits and the Big Shot.  Love the coordination of these two products!  Click HERE to see some other projects using this versatile stamp set and framelits.  The center is a fun sentiment from Pursuit of Happiness stamped in Basic Gray ink and punched out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.

Pretty Petites and Petite Curly Label Punch – FREE!

We made this card at a team event, and I fell in love!  It's not my usual taste; I don't tend to do monochromatic anything!  But I love its little touches.

  • Night of Navy card stock is the base of this card, with designer paper from Print Poetry DSP Stack at the bottom.
  • More Print Poetry designer paper creates the 5 banners.  This little pack of paper is a must in my book!  So many prints and such a value!
  • Solid Very Vanilla card stock is dressed up with the Polka Dot Textured Embossing Folder.
  • Love the coordination of the Pretty Petites stamp set and the Petite Curly Label Punch – both items you can receive when you place an order of $50 for each item during Sale-A-Bration.
  • I love the look of paint spattering on my cards, and the Color Spritzer Tool makes it so easy.  Just load in a Stampin' Write Marker, and squeeze – it's that simple!
  • The Boho Blossoms Punch is my "go to" punch whenever I need a little flower to accent something.  Trust me – grab one of these terrific punches, and you'll use it all the time!
