Everyone needs a little sparkle in their lives and Stampin’ Up! has a lot of different products to do this. This card uses four different kinds of “bling”! I used Gold Foil Sheets, Gold Stampin’ Glitter, Gold Sequin Trim and Gold Embossing Powder for the sentiment. When I look at this card I need to put on my sunglasses!
The other color I used is Blackberry Bliss. This is one of the In Colors that is not retiring this year (thank goodness). That is one thing about those In Colors. When they retire they might be gone for good. Stampin’ Up! does do a color renovation once in a while and sometimes will bring back a popular color (hopefully Coastal Cabana!) but you never know.
Remember, you only have 8 more days for Sale-a-bration. Don’t miss out on getting FREE product! Once Sale-a-bration is over, the items offered will be gone for good! You have until March 31st so don’t wait!
Here is another card where I used the pieces from a punch of another card to make a design. This time I used some pieces from the Chevron Border Punch. I gave it an “Ombre” look. This is where you go from the lightest color in a family to the darkest. It is the newest trend right now so I am sure you have seen it all over the internet and in stores. In this case I used Soft Sky, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo. Then I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Just Sayin’ and cut it out using the matching Word Bubbles Framelits.
I made this card for a sketch challenge on Freshly Make Sketches. Challenges are great fun and a wonderful way to come up with ideas. They give you a sketch and you make a card using your own stamps and supplies. I send a monthly sketch to my Club members. They seem to enjoy it and it gets them to use their supplies they purchase from me.
This card uses the Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper called Sweet Sorbet. You can get this paper for FREE with a $50 purchase. I love this paper because the colors are so beautiful. The stamp set is called Just Sayin‘ and has matching Framelits called Word Bubbles. They are in the Occasions Catalog and you can get both in a Bundle and save 15%.
