Sale-a-bration Vintage gifts

These were some of the free gifts my guests received on Friday night at my Sale-a-bration & Summer Mini mystery hostess party.  It was a great night and I’ll show you some more things we made and my other gift over the coming days.

This is such a cute idea and it was inspired by my upline, Joanna Wassens, here

I’ve used the colours Pacific Point, Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette.  The Regal Rose paper is the DSP available only to hostesses as a Level 1 hostess gift.  I stamped the frame and sentiment from the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Vintage Labels.

And yummy – a Fredo inside!

My Uncles’ 60th birthday cards

My Uncles turned 60 on the weekend.  They’re identical twins, so I made their cards similiar, but different!

This one I based on the Parisian Breeze DSP (retired).  The colours I’ve used are Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze and Whisper White.

And this one I based on the Outlaw DSP (retired).  The colours I’ve used are Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Sage Shadow and Very Vanilla.

On both cards I’ve stamped the “Happy Birthday” and frame around the number 60 from the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Vintage Labels.  The “60” is from Best Friends Numbers (retired) and the beer mug is from Cheers to You.  I finished off each card with a jumbo eyelet and linen thread.

Sale-a-bration & Summer Mini Invitation

I have my Sale-a-bration & Summer Mini Mystery Party on Friday 5 February 2010.  This is the invite I posted out to friends and customers.  I really loved the colour combo – Elegant Eggplant, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla and Summer Sun.

The stamp set I used was Hello Again – very versatile!

If you would like to come to my night, it is FREE, and you will receive a FREE Sale-a-bration and Summer Mini catalogue, plus lots of other goodies.  It will be great fun, so look here for more details.  And please RSVP by Monday 1 February 2010.

Last day!!!

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 …

2 days to go …

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!
