Last day of Sale-a-bration & Summer Mini

Well, today is the last day of Sale-a-bration and the Summer Mini.  If you haven’t yet received all the Sale-a-bration stamp sets you want, then today is your last chance to purchase $100 worth of product to earn one more Sale-a-bration stamp set on your wish list.  Please email me before 10.00pm today with your last Sale-a-bration order!

As promised, this is another card I made using the emboss resist technique.  I love the birdcage from Happy Moments that I’ve used on this card!  The birdcage is sooo sweeeet 🙂  And I also love the “hello” sentiment, from the Hello Again stamp set.  Today is also the last day of the Summer Mini Catalogue, and so it’s also the last day you can purchase Hello Again.  The flowers on the background were sparkled up with a touch of Tombow glue and some Olive Fine Supernova glitter – I love bling!

This is another card from the same class – I encourage trying different images and products in classes from what I have available.  In this card, I changed the Fine Supernova glitter to Orange.  Naturally, the Orange coordinates perfectly with this card!

Thanks for looking 🙂

Whimsical Eastern Blooms

This is a card I made for an embossing class the other week.  We used the stamp sets Eastern Blooms and Whimsical Words (and a few other stamp sets – I’ll show you soon).

The colours we used are Really Rust, So Saffron and Whisper White.  We dabbed a touch of Tombow glue at the centre of each flower in the background and then sprinkled Chunky glitter.  Love the bling!  I also love the sponged effect around the white embossed flowers, don’t you?

Razzleberry Happy Moments

I love this card.  The colours really grab me – Rich Razzleberry and Taken with Teal.  I’ve used the Scallop Edge punch along the right edge of the card and layered it with Taken with Teal cardstock to give the edge definition.  I stamped the flowers from the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Happy Moments, in Staz On ink and then coloured in using my blender pens and ink pads.  The flower stems are coloured with Certainly Celery. 

Don’t you love the bow?  The new Rich Razzleberry grosgrain ribbon is simply YUM! lol!

It is hard to see in the photograph, but I’ve stamped the oval stamp from Vintage Labels in Rich Razzleberry on the Large Oval punched layer and also in Taken with Teal on the Wide Oval punched layer.  A subtle bit of stamping!  Here is a close up:

This would be a great make-and-take card for a workshop!

Whimsical Kaleidoscope hostess box

This is a box I made for one of my lovely hostesses, as a thank you for arranging a stamp-a-stack at her home last month.

This scallop envelope box is a sneak peek of a few lovely products that will be available in the new Autumn/Winter Mini catalogue that starts on 1 April 2010.  The box is made using the BIG SHOT (yeah! you too can purchase the Big Shot from Stampin’ Up after 1 April 2010!!).  I’ve used the Stampin’ Up! Scallop Envelope Bigz Dies with the Big Shot to make this box.  There is a yummy new In Color available from 1 April 2010 – Melon Mambo.  And coordinating ribbon will be available too – don’t you love the polka dots?  The sentiment has been also stamped in the new Melon Mambo ink.

How lovely is the sentiment?  It’s from another Sale-a-bration stamp set, Whimiscal Words.  I love the font too!  Remember, you only have until 31 March to place your $100 or more order to receive a free Sale-a-bration stamp set!

This is the side on view of the box.  The Designer Series Paper is from the current Summer Mini Catalogue.  Doesn’t the  Kaleidoscope DSP look great with Lovely Lilac and Melon Mambo?

This close up (below) shows off the elegant SU Filigree brads and rhinestone brads.  My favourites!

Inside the  box I have some yummy chocolates in a SU cellophane bag that I also stamped, using White Staz On ink and the new Dreams wheel.  The new Dreams wheel will be available in the upcoming Autumn/Winter Mini on 1 April 2010.

Rich Razzleberry Happy Moments

I love the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Happy Moments!  It is such a versatile stamp set – it’s a MUST HAVE! lol! 

And how yummy is the upcoming new colour Rich Razzleberry with Sahara Sand?  I love these colours together.  I was inspired to make this card after seeing this gorgeous card on Splitcoaststampers here.   

I stamped the present in Staz On black ink and then coloured it in with my blender pens using the Rich Razzleberry ink pad and my Old Olive ink pad.  I think the textured Sahara Sand and paper piercing makes a great background for the present.  The silver cord I’ve tied around the present is retired SU cord.  The sentiment is from another super Sale-a-bration stamp set – Vintage Labels.

Have you got all the Sale-a-bration stamp sets yet?  Do you want Happy Moments?  Email me today with your order over $100 and you can have Happy Moments for FREE.  Hurry though, Sale-a-bration ends on 31 March 2010.

Crazy for Cupcakes stamp-a-stack

This is another great idea for a simple birthday card for a stamp-a-stack, using the stamp set Crazy for Cupcakes.

I love this colour combo – I’ve used it before!  These colours are yummy together – Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Regal Rose and Lovely Lilac.  We stamped the cupcake stand in Staz On Black and then coloured it in using marker pens and/or blender pens and ink pads.  A touch of Dazzling Diamonds finishes off the card.

Pun Fun stamp-a-stack

This is one of the cards we made at a stamp-a-stack last week.  I was inspired by another great card on Splitcoaststampers here.  What a great boy’s card! 

The rocket ship from Pun Fun and the Classic Stars jumbo wheel really go well together, I think.  Boys, rockets and stars – can’t go wrong, really! lol!
