Well, today is the last day of Sale-a-bration! Here is another idea for you using two of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets, Botanical Blooms and Yummy.
I’ve used the colours Sage Shadow, Lovely Lilac, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red and Basic Black. And I’ve used the tone-on-tone effect for the base of the Sage Shadow card, stamping Botanical Blooms in Sage Shadow. Then, on the Whisper White, I’ve two-step stamped the flowers … first the outline in Basic Black and then the solid colours in Sage Shadow, Lovely Lilac, Pretty in Pink and Rose Red. And just because it’s been a while … I’ve added Dazzling Diamonds to the flowers!
I finished off the card colouring in the sentiment from Yummy using my Lovely Lilac Stampin’ Write marker pen and then stamping that onto the card base. Then a dash of ribbon with some Rose Red grosgrain ribbon and a Lovely Lilac button (threaded with linen thread), finally lifts the card. I could not have made this card without my Stamp-a-ma-jig either!!
Remember to visit again tomorrow … the retirement list will be out as the countdown for the new catalogue begins! Exciting days! hehe …
Well, on 17 March it will be St Patrick’s Day … and it is also my husband’s birthday. So, this is the card I’ve made for him … and how handy was the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Polka Dot Punches!! I was completely inspired by Splitcoaststampers for this card here. I’ve also used the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Yummy, for the sentiment “with love” and my “Happy Birthday” is from God’s Blessings. And the background stamp I’ve used is En Francais. My only regret with this card is that I should have stamped the “Happy Birthday” a little lower 😦 But, otherwise, I think this has to be the best birthday card I’ve made for Shane yet, especially seeing as it is also St Pat’s Day!! Oh, and the colour is Wild Wasabi through and through!
As you no doubt know, I love embellishments! And so there are a few on this card: a square rhinestone brad, Antique Brass hodgepodge, Wild Wasabi stitched grosgrain, black and white gingham and linen thread.
I hope you like this idea!
Remember, Sale-a-bration finishes for the year on Saturday, so if you have an order of $100 or more, then now is the time to place it with me … so you can have a free Sale-a-bration stamp set to go with it!
Here is another idea for you to make a card using the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Botanical Blooms. I have cased the idea for this gorgeous card here, which I’m sure is using one of the new In Colors (can’t wait for 1 April!!)! Thank you for the inspiration, Dawn … that’s the second card of Dawn’s that has inspired me this year! And it’s not even March yet 🙂
The colours I’ve used to recreate this card are Pretty in Pink, Berry Bliss DSP and Basic Black. I’ve stamped the flower outline in Basic Black and then coloured it in with my marker pens with the colours Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose on scrap paper. Then I have cut out the three flowers and stuck them over the solid leaf image I’ve stamped in Pretty in Pink. The greeting is stamped in Basic Black and the ribbon is pink taffeta.
Although I started to make this card to inspire you with an idea to make a card, I had only half finished this card and I knew I had to send it to my step-mother. So, it will be in the post on the weekend on its way to Canberra.
It is hard to believe that we are almost at the end of February … but there are only 4 days of February left and that means only 4 days left of Sale-a-Bration!
Are you often wondering what you could make with a particular stamp set? Well, this is one idea of what you could do with the Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Congrats. I’ve made this card into a card for my sister-in-law for her graduation. I’ve also used Boho Backgrounds for the handbags and have embossed them using Versamark and Wild Wasabi. Such a simple card … and made so much easier with Stampin’ Up!’s square punches.
This is a close up of the embossing and the red rhinestone brad …
I also paper pierced the dots under the word “congratulations”.
Here is another embossed handbag card (I think they’ll be a really popular birthday card theme for me this year!!) … again using Boho Backgrounds on the handbags … and the sentiment is from In the Stars, available in our current Summer Mini. I’ve used more rhinestone brads on this card …
and, of course, a close up of those gorgeous brads …
Come visit again tomorrow and I’ll post some more ideas for another Sale-a-bration stamp set. If you don’t have any Sale-a-bration stamp sets yet, then you’ll need to place an order with me of $100 or more before the end of the month to pick your own!
I’ve a few baby cards to show you today. The first two are from my embossing class the other night.
For these cards, everyone used the jumbo wheel with Nursery Letters and then embossed with Heat & Stick power and Dazzling Diamonds for a sparkling effect! Gosh, it looks even better in real life! Then we embossed the prams from Simple Somethings with silver embossing powder … and everyone could colour as they pleased to suit their events! I’ve coloured the baby girl’s card in Pretty in Pink using the Stampin’ Up! pastels …
I’ve coloured in the baby boy’s card using Bashful Blue from my Stampin’ Up! pastels …
This is a close up … I love the Heat & Stick plus Dazzling Diamonds effect, don’t you!?!
Then I had a card left over, so this is an additional card I made. This time I used the baby stamp from In the Stars (available in the Summer Mini) and stamped it in Versamark and then Barely Banana Ink … and then embossed it. I’ve used a metal edge tag to add elegance to the card and I used the Certainly Celery DSP to punch out the scallop circle that I’ve layered the baby stamp onto. I hope that makes sense!
This is a close up …
And, lastly, white taffeta ribbon finished off all of the cards.
