So Hoppy Together

This is the card I made for my friend and downline, Lynette for her birthday in February.  I forgot to post it earlier which is why I am posting it now.  If you look closely at the eyes on the dragonflies and the frog you will see I put some Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots on them.  Lynette loves Googly eyes so I knew I could not just send this card without doing something for her.

The stamp set I used is in the Sale-a-bration Catalog.  It is called So Hoppy Together and you can get it for free with a qualifying order.  Stampin’ Up!® has done something different this year with some of their Sale-a-bration stamp sets.  They have made matching dies and So Hoppy Together is one of those sets.  The dies are called Hop Around Framelits Dies.  I didn’t use the dies on this card because I made it before I knew the dies would be available.

The sentiment is from the stamp set called Life Is Grand.  This set is in the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  The colors I used for this card are Night Of Navy, Granny Apple Green and Lemon Lime Twist.  The Designer Series Paper is called Gingham Gala and is also in the Occasions Catalog.

If you buy the Hop Around Dies, the stamp set called Life Is Grand and the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots you can get the stamp set called So Hoppy Together for Free during Sale-a-bration!  Better hurry though.  Sale-a-bration ends March 31st!

Painted Seasons

Painted Seasons is a stamp set that you could get for FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration.  It is a beautiful stamp set that is part of the Stampin’ Up!® family of stamps called DisINKtive.  DisINKtive stamps are made in such a way that they show depth.  You can see it in the flowers above.  The crevices of the flowers are darker making you think they are deeper inside the flower.  I think these stamps are very cool.  The Painted Seasons stamp set is part of a Bundle in the Sale-a-bration Catalog.  It also comes with the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper.

Although DisInktive stamps are awesome in themselves, this set is even better because Stampin’ Up!® is now offering matching dies for sale called Four Seasons.  These dies are while supplies last so if you want them, you need to order them soon.

The colors I used on this card are Calypso Coral, Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz.  I stamped the flowers and leaves and then cut them out using the Four Seasons Framelits Dies.  I then arranged them in the corners of a piece of Whisper White cardstock using a Dimensional to pop up the Calypso Coral flower.  I stamped the greeting from Picture Perfect Birthday in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then cut it out using a die from the Frosted Bouquet set of dies.  I cut out a piece of Calypso Coral using the larger die from this set.  All of these things were then layered upon a Petal Pink card base.

Well Written & Painted Seasons DSP

Here is another card made with a new product you can get for FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration.  It is called Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper and it is gorgeous!

Here is a video showing you about this Designer Series Paper, the matching stamp set also called Painted Seasons and the Four Seasons Framelits Dies.  Please keep in mind that originally the stamps and the paper were in a Bundle.  Stampin’ Up!® has decided to separate them so you can now get the paper with a $50 order or the paper and the stamps for $100.

I made this card using a sketch I found online.  I apologize because I forgot to note who the sketch belongs to.  I just saw it on Pinterest so if it is your sketch, please let me know and I will give you credit.

Can you believe there is absolutely no stamping with this card?  It only uses the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper and the Well Written Dies that are in the 2019 Occasions Catalogs.  These dies are amazing.  There are 24 dies in the set and there is a matching stamp set called Well Said that matches them.  I will put both the Bundle and each item separate in my links below.

The colors I used for this card are Petal Pink, Poppy Parade and Call Me Clover.  The little butterfly is also included in the Well Written Die Set.  I popped up the piece of cardstock with the DSP on it using Dimensionals.

Take advantage of the free merchandise you can earn during Sale-a-bration before March 31st. There is no limit to how many items you can get.  Place a $50 order and get one product.  Place a $100 and you can get two products, etc.

So Hoppy Together Has Matching Dies!

So Hoppy Together is a stamp set that you can get for free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration.  It is an adorable stamp set with frogs, and dragonfly, flies and other images.  The best part is Stampin’ Up!® has now made matching dies for this set called Hop Around Framelits as well as some of the other Sale-a-bration stamp sets!  You can also get dies for Painted Seasons, Lasting Lily, and Hello Cupcake!  This makes me want all of them!  I put the links to all these dies below.

To make this card, I first stamped the frogs and dragonfly in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Stamping Blends (Granny Apple Green Dark & Light, Balmy Blue Light and Night of Navy Dark).  Then I cut them out using the new Hop Around Framelits Dies.  Next I cut out the lily pad and flowers also using the dies.  I layered them all together using Snail and Dimensionals onto a piece of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  This DSP is also free with a qualifying order!  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Incredible Like You.

Sale-a-bration Ends In Two Days

It has been an awesome few months but, as they say, all good things must come to an end.  Honestly, I am not sure who said that but not ALL good things have to end but SOME good things must come to an end.  One of those good things is the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration.  There are only two days left until this amazing deal ends.  Have you gotten everything you want?  Does anyone ever get everything they want?  Well, don’t miss out on this deal because it won’t be back for another year.

This card was made with a few different Sale-a-bration items.  The Designer Series Paper was a new addition in February.  I think it is my favorite Designer Series Paper ever.  It is called Springtime Foils and is absolutely gorgeous.  It comes in five fabulous foil designs.  One of the great things you can do it with is color it with the Stampin’ Blends.

Another product I used for the sentiments in this card is a stamp set called Amazing You.  Plus the word “amazing” is from a set of dies called Celebrate You.  All three of the items I used (Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper, Amazing You and Celebrate You Thinlits Dies) are available for free with a qualifying order until tomorrow, Saturday, March 31st.

High Tide & Eclectic Expression

I am beginning to wonder if winter will ever end.  We keep getting a tiny little taste of spring and then bam!  Winter arrives again as if you say “ha ha.  I fooled you again!”.  At least I can add a little spring and summer to my cards.

To make this card I used a stamp set called High Tide.  It is a two step stamp set which means it takes two or more stamps to make one image.  In this case I inked one of the lighthouse stamps with Basic Black and the other with Marina Mist.  It kind of makes it look like a shadow on the lighthouse.  I also stamped the birds and the grass in Marina Mist.  Then I lightly sponged with some more Marina Mist Ink.  The beam of light is So Saffron.

The sentiment is from Eclectic Expressions.  This is a stamp set you can get for free with a $50 order.  It is a fun set with some sentiments, splatters and fun blobs.  I inked it with Basic Black.

There are only a few more days left for Sale-a-bration so don’t forget to place your order before it is too late.  It all ends March 31st.
