Only A Couple Of Days To Sale-A-Brate

Perfect Pairings, Balloon Celebration

There are only a couple more days before Sale-a-bration ends.  After that all the items in the Sale-a-bration catalog will be gone forever!  Don’t miss out!

I made this card using the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Perfect Pairings.  It is a great set of nine sentiments that cover just about any occasion you can think of.  You can get this set for free if you purchased some of the other items I used to make this card.  The stamp set is called Balloon Celebration.  It has a matching punch and if you bought both you could save 15% in a bundle.  The ribbon I used is in the Occasions Catalog and is called Watermelon Wonder 1: Stitched Satin Ribbon.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Annual Catalog and is called Cherry On Top.  Purchase all those items and you can get the Perfect Pairings Stamp Set for free!

Hurry before it is too late!

Using DSP Part II

A Nice Cuppa, Botanical Builders

Yesterday I showed you a very simple card to make that used Designed Series Paper with no stamping in my attempt to stop hoarding it.  Of course, I had to use the other piece I cut out so I made another card.  This time I did do some stamping using a stamp set from the 2016 Occasions Catalog called A Nice Cuppa.  It is a cute stamp set that is all about tea.  I decided it needed a little splash of color so I added the flower from the Botanical Builders Framelits.  I hope these cards have inspired you to stop hoarding your paper and start using it!

A Quick & Simple Card

Stampin Up,

I have a confession.  I am a Designer Series Paper hoarder.  I have tons of it and I hardly ever use it.  Whenever a new catalog comes out I always make a resolution to use it all up.  It hasn’t happened in the past and it isn’t going to happen with this catalog either.  Honestly though, I think most stampers are hoarders so I don’t think I am alone.

The best part of using Designer Series Paper is you don’t have to do too much else to the card.  All I did was take a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals Color Collection and glue it to a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then I colored the Thanks with a black Sharpie Marker, put it on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and added a few Candy Dots.  There isn’t even any stamping!  Simple as pie.

A Stamp Off Color Challenge

Stamp Off New Logo

This week we have a color challenge for our Stamp Off.  Honestly, I am not sure who gave us this color challenge.  I guess it really doesn’t matter.  In any case, here are the colors we had to use:


Here is my card:

Botanicals For You

I decided to use the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Botanicals For You.  This is one of my favorite sets that you can get for FREE with a $50 order.  I have always been a fan of large sentiments and this one is one of the biggest.  Plus it also has a bunch of smaller stamps such as the flowers and leaves I used.

Now go check out what Buffy made HERE and Jackie made HERE.  I am sure their projects are awesome because they always are!  One of the things I love most about participating in this challenge is I have no clue what they have made.  Let’s go find out together!

Vintage? Me?

Botanicals For You

First of all, just so you know, I can hear all your comments and noises concerning me making a vintage card.  Therefore, be careful what you say!  I suppose I could blame Buffy for this attempt.  She makes the most beautiful vintage cards ever and since I admire her so much, I thought I would try myself.  If you have been following my blog for any length of time, you will know I am not a vintage stamper.  Honestly, I stink at it.  Remember when I told you I often through my creations in the garbage?  Well most of the ones that land there are because I attempted something vintage.

That being said, I have to admit I kind of like this card (which is why I am posting it).  The Calypso Coral flowers are not really vintage but I added them anyway.  They are from the stamp set called Pictogram Punches.  The sentiment is from the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Botanicals For You.  You can get this set for free with a $50 order before March 31st when Sale-a-bration ends.  I also used a stamp set from the 2016 Occasions Catalog called Timeless Textures for the background.

Now, back to my usual CAS (Clean and Simple) cards!
