Sale-a-bration’s Heartfelt Hellos

I love the fact that each year Stampin’ Up! does a two month event where we can earn FREE products. Not only are these products a lot of fun to earn, but they have helped me build my stamping collection over the years. I always love the sentiment sets since I can team them up with other things I already have so the Heartfelt Hellos (Sale-a-bration 162964) was a must have.

And the fact you can use it with our new Heartfelt Hexagon Punch (162888) makes it quick and easy to use too. Check out these two cards made using this set for Mother’s Day.

This first card uses the Sunny Days Designer Series Paper (162974) which has bold cheerful images you can use for all kinds of things including the coordinating Mini Catalog Bundle, Bright Skies.

This next card uses the soft and sweet Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 162977) and some folding to create this sweet card.

The little Brushed Brass Butterflies (158136) and Flat Adhesive Backed Pearls (160449) add a special touch.

Don’t need a Mother’s Day card? The great thing about a set like this is you can simply swap out the sentiment for one that you need. Meaning you can make one design and use the card for multiple occasions something I find helpful when I’ve got a busy schedule. How about you?

Perennial Lavender Mask Wraps

It’s winter and that always means the skin needs a bit of pampering, so when I ran across these foot masks at my local store I knew I wanted to create a fun wrap to create gifts for my team. After all who doesn’t like a little pampering any time of year?

The wrap allows you to slide the mask out easily

I’ve created this wrap up using the Painted Lavender stamp set (162594) but since I wanted to use the lovely Sale-a-bration FREE Pool Party 5/8″ Crinkle Ribbon (Sale-a-bration 162980)

I changed up the color pallet. You can see just how lovely it is and a great width for a bold pop of color. So I started with the Pool Party base and went from there. The images from the Painted Lavender Stamp set (162594)

were stamped using a quick and easy technique called the stamp off method, this technique will give you a different shades each time you stamp off making it a great way to create depth and give more flexibility when using your Classic Ink Pad.

I finally added some Purple Fine Shimmer Gems (162611) to add a bit of shimmer and texture to the project. These gems come in different colors and are quite pretty, you’ll want to be sure to check them out in my Online store.

Want to see how I made this wrap for my gift? Check out my video tutorial and printable PDF.

You can find all kinds of masks like I did at the Dollar Tree. We got our first ones as a hotel pillow gift on a trim and as my daughter and I found we enjoyed trying them out and enjoyed the bit of pampering it gave us.

More Softly Sophisticated

The other day I shared a few cards using this FREE bundle that you can earn during Sale-a-bration. You can see them here.

The Softly Sophisticated Bundle (Sale-a-bration 162947) is one of our level 2 products that you can choose when placing an qualifying order thru the end of February or while supplies last.

Check out these two cards using the same image and sentiment from the stamp set they have completely different feels which is one of the things I love about stamping. This first card is soft in soft subtles and also uses the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 162977).

If you haven’t already gotten one of these packs of papers you’ll want to be sure to get yours before it is gone. The pack is to die for with it’s lovely soft images. This card also uses the soft Champagne Iridescent Dots (162824) which also has the same soft feel. And this next card is bold and bright

since it uses our Sweet Sorbet and Granny Apple Green. The sentiment has been fussy cut and the focal point uses the Everyday Details Dies (162864). This set of dies is a great basic shapes set you’ll enjoy using for a long time.

I’ve chosen to use the pattern side to create this easy card to send a bit of love my daughter.

This card was quick and easy to stamp with it’s bold sentiments since I used the More Wishes Stamp set (162324) that you can find in my Online store since it is part of our Carry Over list.

Sale-a-bration’s Detailed Dogwood

Today I’m going to share projects using one of our Sale-a-bration’s Stamp Sets with you. The Detailed Dogwood stamp set (Sale-a-bration 162953) is one of our Level Two options and it’s got some great images that you can team up with your favorite sentiment set.

This first card uses simple stamping to create a lovely card.

The images have been stamped using Pecan Pie, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, and Misty Moonlight Classic Inks. The little tag has been punched out using the Best Label Punch (158885). A pop of shine has been added to the card using the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots (159082).

And for the next card we are going to step it up with a fun fold called the Bookbinding Fold.

This fold is a quick and simple one and it’s done with just one score line at the 1 1/4″ mark on the card front and then it is adhered in place. Voila! a fun fold. The card uses our Fluid 100 5×7 Watercolor Paper (149612) and has been water colored using Bubble Bath, Lemon Lolly, and Mossy Meadow Classic Inks and our Water Painters (151298). And a touch of gold has been added with another FREE Sale-a-bration item, our Most Adored Specialty Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 162976).

This final card uses a quick and simple torn edge technique to create a wonderful card that has tons of texture.

First the panels have been stamped, then the edge has been torn and they have been layered one on top of the other right to left to create the card front. The Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder (162189) has been used for the first Lost Lagoon layer, then Pool Party, and a piece of the Designer Series Paper, Softly Stippled (Sale-a-bration 162975) and finally a stamped layer of Calypso Coral. The sentiment has been popped up and uses the quick and easy Double Oval Punch (154242) which makes sentiments like this quick and easy to do!

Did you know that we have two levels of products to choose from during Sale-a-bration? When you shop with me you can choose either a Level One ($50 minimum purchase) or a Level Two ($100 minimum purchase) or a combination of both.
