I’m attending a virtual leadership event this weekend with Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world and as I listen, I’m also able to do a little stamping!
I’m combining the #tgif331 Inspiration Challenge with the #CCMC679 sketch for my card showcasing the Counting Sheep stamp set and Sheep Dies…both of which you could earn free during Sale-a-Bration!
You could get most of these products FREE by hosting an online party before September 30th (I don’t have any open in-person dates left, sorry) or placing a $150 order and choosing the stamps, dies and Designer Series Paper as a host! Book early, as the sheep dies are only available while supplies last!
Do you feel like you make the same style of card over and over again? The best way to STRETCH your creative muscles is with a SKETCH!
For my Lunchtime LIve Crafting on my Facebook page today, I started with the #TGIFC329 sketch challenge and the Feels Like Home Sale-a-Bration stamp set…I’m having a ball using these freebies in my Monday videos to help inspire YOU on ways to use the gifts/supplies you earn for each $50 spent through September 30th, and if you want to watch today’s video tutorial, click here!
This is the TGIF sketch challenge and here are my finished card(s):
When you buy the supplies to create this card, you could choose the stamp set FREE!
I thought it was fun to flip the embossed layer over so the mortar is squeezing out between the bricks. It feels very “Mediterranean Seaside” to me… like an armchair vacation to Greece.

You aren’t imagining things: Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration is a little shorter this year…but don’t worry: There will be 2nd Sale-a-Bration in July and August, with all NEW (limited time) products to earn! That means you only have 3 days left to snag the wonderful freebies from the current event, because it ends February 28th. I’ll share a few of the SAB products I’ve been crafting with:
Darling Donkeys has been neck-and-neck with Berry Blessings for most popular Sale-a-Bration stamp set! Do you have this one yet? I layered him on an embossed piece of vellum for a fabulous birthday card.
When you find a card pattern that will work with all of your Designer Series Paper, make a big STACK of them! That’s what I did with the Flower & Field DSP and used this card for swapping at our recent StampFest events. It’s an inexpensive card, since the paper was free!
Finally, this was ONE of the cards I demonstrated in my Lunchtime Live Crafting on my FB page this past Monday showcasing The Touch of Ink stamp set and the Oh, So Ombre paper …with plain and patterned paper that will pair well with any stamp, it’s a great choice to expand your choices for projects with Bermuda Bay, Rococo Rose, Granny Apple Green or Blackberry Bliss (shown). Be sure to watch the video to see the other projects I demonstrated!
Now RUN (don’t walk) to get your order in before February 28th so you can choose a free Sale-a-Bration reward (like one of these) with each $50 you add to your cart before they are gone forever!
We are more than halfway through the first Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration of 2021 (yes, there will be TWO this year) and the New at SU! group of international demonstrators want to make sure you can use the products you choose FREE (with your qualifying order) in simple, sensational and innovative ways! As you hop through our February event, tell us what you are inspired to try in your stamping studio.
The Darling Donkeys stamp set is one product you could choose free with a $50 purchase through February, and I imagined a vibrant In-Color card would be perfect to celebrate a birthday:
Starting with strips of the In-Color 2020-2022 colors on a piece of white card stock, I cut out the letters using the Playful Alphabet dies and then glued it to a card base. Then I looked at the letters I had cut out and thought perhaps I should make a second card with them:
That little donkey is just ready to cut loose and celebrate, isn’t he! He’s colored with Stampin’ Blends and I was tickled I could create a Twofer card (two-for-one).
Which do you like best?
The supplies I used are listed below, and kick up YOUR heels as you head over to Tricia’s site to see what she’s creating with the Approaching Perfection Sale-a-Bration stamp set.
My creative heart feels like it’s truly a New Year when the Stampin’ Up! January-June Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration make their happy debut. It’s like fireworks go off in my head with the unlimited possibilities of new projects!

Just say the word and I’ll get you a host code and you can be a part of it.
We are celebrating the final fling of Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration (ends March 31st) so our international group of demonstrator friends are squeezing the most of it for you today! You’ll find many projects to inspire you to get (at least) one more FREE S-A-B product (while they last).
I’m using three co-ordinating Sale-a-Bration products today: The Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper and the Lily Pad Dies to create an illuminating gift for a friend:
This little bag contains a tea-light holder and will express how much you appreciate someone who has shined a light in your life! I found the perfect sentiment in the Strong & Beautiful stamp set, though I forgot to add it to my supply list…
The measurements for the DSP inside the bag are 2-5/8″ x 12″ and scored at 3/4″, 3–5/8″ and 10-5/8″. I also made a small box for the bottom of the bag (sits inside the DSP to hold the candle) from card stock: 4″ square, scored at 3/4″ on each side. It takes a bit of patience to work the DSP + box into the bottom of the bag, but it works!
Now you’re off to see more pretty Sale-a-Bration projects…next up is Heather (or bounce back to Diane’s blog) and a full list of participants is found at the end of this post!
You can order supplies from your demonstrator to create this unique project. Don’t have a demo? I’m happy to serve you (links below)!
Sale-a-Bration 2020 is is FULL SWING and today I’m sharing a few projects made with the coolest Kats: The Gang’s All Meer stamp set was the first stamp set I chose for free with my initial S-A-B order!
Yesterday I demonstrated this card on my Lunchtime Crafting Live that happens each Monday on my Creative Juice Facebook Page:
Isn’t that adorable? And it’s super simple to make.
I though it would also be fun to make a gift pouch from the Stampin’ Up! Pillow Boxes with these cute kats:
It’s the right size for a gift card and candy bar, or jewelry and other small gifts!
The Gang’s All Meer stamp set is only available during Sale-a-Bration 2020 and is FREE with a $50 purchase from my Stampin’ Store. There are many options for S-A-B rewards in addition to this stamp set, and remember that they are while supplies last, or until March 31, 2020! It’s the perfect time to stock up on your stamping supplies.
Thanks for visiting and take the time to create something beautiful today!
