Sale-a-Bration Coodination!

Sale-A-Bration Coordination Product Release

Sale-A-Bration Coordination Product Release

Most of us have a favorite outfit that mixes and matches and feels just right. Or the perfect food pairing that we crave. Well, just like fashion and food, crafting is sweeter when you have the perfect combinations. Stampin' Up! has made favorites from the Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration reward items even better with new coordinating products!

The popular Sale-A-Bration reward stamp set, Happy Birthday To You (#152308), is awesome on it's own, but paired with the coordinating Birthday Dies (#153590) you can do so much more! No more fussy cutting the adorable animals and balloons from the Special Someone stamp set (#151643), just get the coordinating framelits and crafting sweet cards is faster and easier.

If you are like me and many of my stamping friends, and have a punch addiction, then you'll want to get your inky fingers on the new Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper (#153558). It coordinates with 4 different punches!

I think you can see why I'm so excited by these new coordinating products! They are only available until March 31st or while supplies last. I'm predicting some will sell out, so don't wait, get your new coordinating favorites today!

As always, feel free to contact me at any time! I love to discuss all things stampy!

Happy St. Patrick's Day punch art

Hi everyone.  I am participating in a card swap where we are supposed to highlight our punches and dies.  This card is full of punches! And, with March fast approaching, it is just in time for St. Patrick's day!
I love the Word Wishes Dies!  They cover so many holidays! There is a Merry, Happy, and Day, and you can pair them with Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Valentine's, St. Patrick's, Mother's, Father's, and New Years. They are sized perfectly for both card and scrapbook projects.

For the pot of gold I used the Hot Air Balloon punch.  I like it better than a circle punch because I think the shape is flatter on the bottom and tapers up nicely, but if you have a circle punch, then it would work as well.  The coins are punched with a 3/4 inch circle punch and gold foil paper.
The Leprechaun is made from the Pretty Label Punch (head), tulip builder punch (mustache and little tuft of hair under the hat), 1/2 inch circle punch (nose) 1 3/4 inch circle punch (hat).  I made the eyes with a hand held hole punch, but you can use other punches or dies that you may have, I have also used the tiny circles from the retired cupcake punch, the owl punch or circles left behind from the garage gears die.  I made the brim of the hat with just a strip of paper, rounded at the ends with a circle punch.
Colors used for the background rainbow are Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushel, and Gorgeous Grape.  
I made a video to show how to put it all together, with tips for lining up the rainbow background and making a shamrock out of the blossom punch.  Check it out!  

Shop with me! I would love to be your demonstrator.  I always send a hand stamped thank you card and sometimes more with a larger order, and I share my Stampin' Rewards with you through my Frequent Buyer Rewards! Earn FREE STAMPS! Click on the Frequent buyer tab to download the tracking sheet.

Painted Poppies Stamp Camp To Go!

The Mini Catalog Inspiration
Painted Poppies Suite

The Peaceful Poppies suite includes two bundles, plus tons of gorgeous accessories. This suite is so amazing we have to call it a super-suite! The Painted Poppies bundle (#153827) and Peaceful Moments bundle (#153824) are both stamp set and die bundles and they both coordinate with each other, as well as, with the other elements of the suite. Talk about a super-suite that really blooms with creativity!

 I have created a Stamp Camp To Go for this bundle of products. You can get a PDF with step by step instructions with photos for 4 projects using the Painted Poppies stamp set, and stepped up versions that use the coordinating Painted Labels dies. The PDF is free with the purchase of the Painted Poppies stamp set. If you already own the stamp set you can get the PDF for $5. If you feel like purchasing the Painted Poppies bundle with stamp set and dies, I will send you the PDF and a materials to create all the projects including cardstock, cut and scored and ready to go, as well as ribbon and other materials, you just need to supply your own ink and adhesives. For the projects I use the Peaceful Moments stamp set for the sentiments. You can substitute other sentiment stamps if you don't have them. However, the Peaceful Moments stamp set is part of the Painted Poppies suite and even has coordinating dies that have poppies as well. If you purchase both the Painted Poppies bundle and the Peaceful Moments bundle I will send you the PDF, card kit for both the standard and stepped up cards for the Stamp Camp To Go, and a pack of the Painted Poppies Embellishments FREE.
The Stamp Camp To Go features 3 cards and a gift bag shown below.  I have shown 2 versions, one with and one with out the dies. 
 Below is the Painted Poppies Embellishment pack. It has pre-printed die cut sheets, embossed labels, printed vellum and even some watercolor paper with embossed flowers for you to paint on.

The Painted Poppies bundle is ideal for techniques like watercoloring and coloring with Stampin' Blends.

This lovely card features watercoloring, modified die, and modified embellishments techniques.I think you'll love the techniques and the beautiful card you'll create!

Positive Thoughts

Hi everyone.  Today I am sharing a card made with the new Positive Thoughts Stamp set.  I love the images in this set, perfect for a layered card, and the sentiments are nice to add to my collection. They are great for a thinking of you card but also for when you want to send a card to someone who is maybe hurting but not quite in need of a sympathy card.
I added extra depth to the images by first stamping with a lighter color and then adding a darker tone on top with sponges.  With the butterfly, I added some extra color with markers.
Here is a little sneak peek for you, the new Natures Thoughts Dies.  These will be released on February 4th as part of a collection of coordinating products that work with spring mini catalog products and sale-a-bration products.  I loved this stamp set, but I love them even more with this new die collection!!

I made a how to video that shows you how to make this card step by step.


Shop with me! I would love to be your demonstrator.  I always send a hand stamped thank you card and sometimes more with a larger order, and I share my Stampin' Rewards with you through my Frequent Buyer Rewards! Earn FREE STAMPS! Click on the Frequent buyer tab to download the tracking sheet.
