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?

Sale-a-bration’s A Touch of Ink

The A Touch of Ink stamp set (Sale-a-bration 155233) is another great option for you when you place a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration and you get to pick your free product. A Touch of Ink combines a set with wonderful all occasion sentiments, images and give you a 2 step option for adding color too.

You’ll want to check out these wonderful cards created with this stamp set – after all who can resist butterflies and hummingbirds! This first card uses our Blending Brushes (153611) to add a simple band of color as a backdrop of these lovely sketched images.

A bit of texture has been added to the Granny Apple Green layer with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (153200) and the sentiment has been punched out with our new Double Oval Punch (154242) and added to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals to add some depth.

This next card uses the fun polka dot pattern from the Field & Flower Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 155223) and sets the color pallet for the card.

I love the water color look the 2 step stamps in this set have – the shading is done for you with one quick and easy stamp.

How about a soft and sweet look? Done in Purple Posy and Blushing Bride this next card has a completely different feel due to the colors chosen. The sentiment has a shadow effect since the sentiment has been cut out with the Ornate Frames Dies (150664) and popped up for a bit of color behind it.

The hummingbird has been colored using our So Saffron and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends for a bit strong coloring effect.

And how about the focal point being the flowers? I love the way this gives us just a hint of the hummingbird dropping by for a quick meal.

And today’s final card uses just the 2 step stamps to create this collage effect for this bright and bold card done in Gorgeous Grape, Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow.

Quick and easy the Gorgeous Grape 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon (154572) adds a bit of color and texture to the card. So what do you think? Which card is your favorite? There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to card making. It’s part of what I love with stamping our color choices an create such different looks with the same stamp set and our options are unlimited since the coordination Stampin’ Up! gives us allows for endless options based on what we like!

And how about this card using the Golden Garden Specialty Designer Acetate (154557) and Dragonflies Punch (154240)?

Done in Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss and Bumblebee its a wonderfully warm card with its rich texture created with the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder (151801). And how about some Thank you cards too? This first one is made using the Dandy Garden 6×6 Designer Series Paper (154297).

For a completely different look this final card team up the sentiment with one of my favorite new 3D Embossing Folder, Seashells (154309).

Our new Blending Brushes (153611) were used to add color easily. The Opal Rounds (154289) add a bit of shimmer to the card. Don’t you love how color and simple choices make our cards feel so different? This makes a new sentiment set such a great choice as it changes things up so easily!

Approaching Perfection

Today’s stamp set Approaching Perfection is another of our Sale-a-bration offerings that you can earn for FREE when placing a minimum order of $50. This set is filled with fun sentiments and simple images great for birthdays.

Want to see some fun cards using this set? Well you’re in luck I’ve got a great variety to share with you today. This first card in the bright cheerful colors of Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry and it uses our Stampin’ Write Markers for a quick and easy way to add two colors to the candle image.

It’s a great card for all ages.

Here is another fun card using the same Stampin’ Write Marker technique, this time in Misty Moonlight and Just Jade. Check out the Champagne Rhinestones (151193) adding a bit of sparkle to the candles.

This next card teams up the bold patterns from the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 155223) to create this striking card.

And don’t forget our punches. Here the Balloon Bouquet Punch (140609) was used to punch some balloons from the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 155222).

The balloons are tied together with our Misty Moonlight Baker’s Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack (153620) found in the Annual Catalog. I just LOVE how we can mix and match our products and they work together so well!

And these last two cards use color to highlight the wonderful sentiments in different ways.

How cool is that?

More Berry Blessings

During this cold winter weather it’s always fun to see the bright reds and blues of berries in my local grocery stores. It’s a sign and promise of what is to come and warmer weather. I’ve had blueberry bushes in my yard for years and always enjoy seeing those little bell shaped blossoms. I was surprised years ago while sitting in our local extension service class learning how to install the bushes to learn all the benefits of those little sticks we were going to pick up. After a few years not only did our bushes at our old house beginning give a bounty of berries they were pretty year round too. Even in the fall the leaves turn bright red before they fall off. How about you? Are you dreaming of soft summer breezes and fresh sweet berries from the yard?

Check out these lovely cards made using the Berry Blessings Stamp set and Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 157613). This first one uses a fun fold and our Misty Moonlight and Balmy Blue.

More Berry Blessings

And this next one uses Real Red to create these yummy raspberries. A bit of our Champagne Foil sheets and Basic Pearls adds a bit of shine.

And this last card is a fun way to use scraps,

So what do you think? Which card do you like best?
