Sale-a-bration ends in 48 hours!

Sale-a-bration ends Sunday, February 28th, that just 2 days! So why not check out these projects using some of the free Sale-a-bration goodies before they are gone?

This first card uses one of my favorite stamp sets, Darling Donkeys (Sale-a-bration 155264). These adorable little faces are too hard to resist.

This card teams up this sweet face with the For Every Season Designer Series Paper (152486) and Ornate Layers Dies (152726) for a bright cheerful spring card.

And how about this next card using the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper that is part of the Berry Blessing Bundle (Sale-a-bration 157613) found in the Sale-a-bration line up.

I love the fact that it coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle (154394) found in our Mini Catalog. Making it a sweet choice. And how about that adorable Ladybug Trinket (154299)? Coordination one of the great things about Stampin’ Up!

And these next two cards use another favorite, the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 155223) for two completely different looks.

This first card is bright and cheerful card teams up the Dragonfly Garden Bundle (156224) with the Dandy Wishes Die (154315) cut images and Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (154317).

While this next card uses the Oh Snap (154486) stamp set and Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (150646).

The dry embossing not only adds texture but give a cool reptile look to the card.

And finally I think this is my favorite Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper, Oh So Ombre (Sale-a-bration 155225) since it is a stack filled with 4 colors in each pattern it is great for multiple projects like I shared with you yesterday.

This card was stamped with the Back to Back Blooms (152597) stamp set found on page 63 of the Mini Catalog. It’s a Reversibles stamp set giving you a ton of choices since when you reverse the stamp on your block you have a second stamping option. Cool right.

This monochromatic card uses the simple outline images to create a soft and lovely card for someone’s birthday. The vellum and Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (146912) adds that soft look. Do you recognize the sentiment? It’s from the Happy Thoughts stamp set (154507).

Whew! Lots of great Sale-a-bration products to choose from. Get yours before they are gone for good. Sale-a-bration ends on Sunday at 11:50 pm (MT).

And of course if you have been thinking about joining and getting a discount on your favorite stamping supplies, the special Join Now Sale-a-bration offering ends on Sunday too. There is no obligation when you join my group, so why not give it a try and see what it’s all about?

Using the same supplies as the first two cards in this series makes this a great way to start building your stamping supplies too if you are new to stamping. Punches make everyone successful and they are quick and easy to use!

I love the landscape option for cards. Do you find you tend to gravitate toward landscape or portrait layouts? Back in High School my art teacher, Mr. Panaro pointed out to me that every time he gave us an option my choice always was landscape. While that was many years ago that observation still rings true. I try to create with the portrait layout in mind too, which is part of what I love about this Mix It Up Series, it always us to stretch and try new things. Have you ever noticed you tend to gravitate towards a certain layout more? Why not leave me a comment and let me know?

Enjoy! Looks like it will be a good weekend to stay inside and craft a little, but then any time is a good time to craft a little if you ask me!

Dragonfly Garden Mix It Up Series #1 final Tutorial

Today marks the end of my Mix It Up Series Series #1 and it’s final project. This week I’ve been sharing with you cards all made with the same pieces, just mixed up. This technique is a fun and quick way to create cards quickly. Whether your new to stamping or a avid crafter like myself you’ll find this series a great way to craft.

Today’s card once again uses the classic Misty Moonlight and Bumblebee combination. Since it uses just 2 ink pads it’s a great way to start building your color collection. And since they both are part of our 2020-2022 In Color Collection you can choose our Cardstock Assortment pack since it contains all 5 colors in the In Color collection.

Done in a landscape layout it with simple stamping – this sentiment is a great way to spread some cheer.

Here is my video tutorial and a printable PDF also for you. Did you know that each of my PDF tutorials not only gives you a complete supply list, measurements, and step by step directions as a companion to the video but it also includes the YouTube link? Yep, they do – that makes it simple to keep everything in one place!

Mix it Up with Dragonfly Garden

Today I’ll be sharing the first card tutorial in a series of tutorials. It’s a series of tutorials that I’m calling – Mix It Up. All the cards in this Series use the same pieces in different ways. So you can cut once and create multiple cards. I had hoped to share this concept that was introduced to us at OnStage@Home last year, but after I filmed and downloaded things they got lost in my computer. I didn’t realize it until I was cleaning up things in my classroom. Sigh. But the good news is I’m sharing them with you now.

So here is the first card in Series #1 – there will be 3 different tutorials in each Series

This series of cards is done in Misty Moonlight and Bumblebee Classic Ink – a classic color combo.

I’ve got a video and PDF for each of the cards in the series –

Mix it Up Series 1 Dragonfly Garden Card #1 Tutorial PDF

And if your wondering you can get a bunch of dragonflies out of this stack of Designer Series Paper – here is a quick look at how I cut it to get the most out of the sheet when using the punch.

Enjoy and then stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the second of 3 cards with you.

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Dragonfly Garden (*154411)

Inks: Misty Moonlight (153118/153124) and Bumblebee Classic Ink (153116/153122)
