Sale-a-Bration Coordination

Watermarked6(2019-03-26-1002)

It’s been fun, but the Sale-a-Bration party is winding down…with only 5 days left to add a free item (or two) to your collection, I wanted to show off a few very versatile items that will allow you to craft through all four seasons of the year, but HURRY, many of them are only here until March 31, 2019!!

The Painted Seasons Sale-a-Bration bundle has DinsINKtive stamp images for Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall, along with a pack of coordinating Designer Series Paper that is a splendid variety (those toadstools are adorable!). You can choose this bundle FREE with a $100 U.S. order, and the other supplies to create these cards can help you collect a qualifying order!

To make the coordination and your crafting even easier, there is a matching framelit die set for the flowers and leaves and the More Than Words stamp set has greetings for multiple celebrations (and which, coincidentally, has sentiments for almost ALL of our S-A-B 2019 stamp sets): Both are available to purchase for a only few more days.

Let’s take a look at the details of these cards:

It’s a simple fold that really makes your card more exciting to open and the Stitched Rectangle Framelits are a necessity in your die cutting collection.

Sale-a-Bration Coordination: Lasting Lily

If you hate fussy cutting, this will surely thrill you: For the first time ever, Stampin’ Up! has created products that coordinate with our Sale-a-Bration offerings~ stamps, punches and framelit/thinlit dies are available to purchase that will enhance the free stamps you earned, and they are only available during March 2019:

Today I’m going to spotlight the Lily Framelit Dies that cut out all the blooming beauty of the Lasting Lily stamp set that you could choose free with a $100 order before March 31, 2019.

It was good luck that the Global Design Sketch Challenge #GDP178 sketch and the TGIF Challenge #TGIFC201 color combination combined perfectly to create my card:

In addition to the framelits include pieces to cut out the flowers and greenery, but there are two label dies that perfectly frame most of the sentiments in the stamp set:

Watermarked2(2019-03-02-0712)

**A tip for ensuring your stamped images fit in the framelits for the stems and leaves: When mounting your stamps, lay the photopolymer stamps face down on your surface to let the stamp assume the correct shape, then set the clear block on top of it to pick it up for stamping.

Because photopolymer stamps are pliable, they can be manipulated into different shapes, so if you put it on with your fingers, it may stretched in a way the stamped image wouldn’t match the framelit.

It felt like keeping this card simple really let the lilies shine!

Beautiful Peacock & Stamparatus

Often Sale-a-Bration speeds by before I have a chance to play with all the terrific products I earn free, so I’m just sliding into the end-zone with this one!

Watermarked1(2018-02-27-2121)

This is called a “Double Z-fold” card and is super simple to create. The sentiment comes from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set, but all the other stamps are from the Beautiful Peacock Sale-a-Bration set (which is one of the items you could choose free with a $50 order by March 31, 2018).

Watermarked3(2018-02-27-2121)

  • The Emerald Envy card base is 11″ x 4-1/4″ scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″.
  • The Flirty Flamingo layer is 9″ x 3-1/4″ scored at 3″ and 6″.
  • I embossed the Layered Leaves on the 2-3/4″ end.
  • The Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon is my FAVORITE and I hope it carries over to the next catalog! It’s luscious to work with.
  • Both Emerald Envy and Flirty Flamingo are part of the In-Colors will be retiring in May: Make sure you have stocked up on card stock, ink refills and accessories A.S.A.P.  because they will only be **while supplies last** once the retiring list comes out in April!

I wanted to show you how to use the Stamparatus (available in my store June 2018!). It’s such a cool tool and this is just the basic way to use it (but there are MANY MORE):

If you would like a reminder when the Stamparatus is available to order, Email me!

One hint on assembling this card: On the Flirty Flamingo layer, only put adhesive above and JUST BELOW the ribbon on the back because you are adhering only the top half of that piece to the top of the Emerald card. Once that is secured where you want it, smash the Flamingo Z fold flat, turn it over and apply adhesive on the back side of the end with the peacock and close your Emerald card over on top to put it in exactly the right spot. Easy-peasy!

There is only one week of Sale-a-Bration left: Don’t miss it! 

Lots & Lots of Lavender

Yesterday I played with the Lots of Lavender Sale-a-Bration stamp set for the first time and actually said out loud, “WHY haven’t I used this before now?” This is one of the easiest 2-Step stamps I’ve ever used and the watercolor effect it has took my breath away as I created!

Wisteria Wonder is one of my favorite purple colors we carry at Stampin’ Up! and now that Spring is starting to wake up, it was retrieved from it’s hibernation to make this first card:Watermarked2(2018-03-12-1316)

These first two samples were actually created LIVE on my Facebook page and you can watch how I created them in my video HERE.

The second one has a completely different look and between the two of them, we used ALL of the stamps in the set. Watermarked3(2018-03-12-1320)

There are no sentiments in the Lots of Lavender stamp set, so I paired it with the All Things Thanks stamp set for all of these cards (the sentiment is on the inside of the first card). This is a BONUS card I created after the video in Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide on Sahara Sand card stock: Watermarked1(2018-03-12-1310)

Sale-a-Bration ends March 31, 2018 so don’t miss your chance to get the Lots of Lavender (or one of the other S-A-B products) FREE!

Epic Celebrations & Happy Accidents

If you watched my Lunchtime Crafting video on my Facebook Page yesterday, you saw me create this card (and a few alternatives) from the Epic Celebrations set (one you can choose FREE with qualifying order during Sale-a-Bration~ until March 31, 2018):

Watermarked2(2018-02-13-1400)-2

It’s a super easy technique called “Reverse Masking” and the colors were suggested on the #gdp125 color challenge:

gdp125_colour_challengeWatermarked1(2018-02-13-1359)

I love coloring Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper with Aqua Painters and ink refills to match any project!

But what you DIDN’T see is the second card I made (since I had to cut a piece of card stock to create one card, I might as well make TWO cards). I accidentally dropped a stamp inked in Melon Mambo on the finished product:

IMG_6574

But as Bob Ross was fond of saying, “We don’t make mistakes {in art}, just happy accidents!” So I pulled out my Classic Label Punch and created some arrows to cover it up:
