Beautifully Happy Meets Retiring In Colors

Hi!  Happy Thursday!   How is your week going?  I hope it’s a good one.

Today I am showcasing a card made with the Beautifully Happy Sale-A-Bration set -which you can choose FREE with a $100 (US, prior to S/H and tax) order.

Beautifully Happy, In Colors 2021-2023, Flowers, Friendship, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #SAB2023

The 3 colors present in this card are Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent – part of the soon-to-be-retired 2021-2023 In Color Collection.  I love the bright pop amidst the greens.  The Beautifully Happy set is a 2-step stamp set – there is an outline image which is stamped in Jet Black StaZon and then there are 3 fill-in stamps – one for the flowers – stamped in Polished Pink, one for the big leaves – stamped in Evening Evergreen, and one for the buds – stamped in Soft Succulent.   I’ve also added some interest using the splatter stamp inked in Gray Granite.

I die-cut the stamped image with a Stitched Rectangle die and layered it on an Evening Evergreen die cut from Scalloped Contours Die set.  A piece of Evening Evergreen Sheer Ribbon is attached to the back of panel and a smaller piece is tied around in the front to create the knot.  The Basic White mat, measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″,  is stamped with the splatter stamp  as well.

The base of the card is Polished Pink and measures 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.  I didn’t add a sentiment to the front, instead, I will add it to the inside and let the flowers be the star of the card.

2021-2023 In Colors – We will be saying goodbye to this set of colors when the new Annual Catalog goes live in May.  If you love this set of colors, I encourage you to place your order now for the ink pad, a re-inker, and card stock – and any embellishments, Designer Series Paper, ribbon or Stampin’ Blends Combo packs that you are missing in your collection.  These items tend to sell-out quickly once the retiring list is announced – so get a jump and don’t miss out.  Not to mention, when you place your order before Feb 28, you’ll also earn a Sale-A-Bration item (min $50 purchase required).

Favored Flowers Birthday

Hi!  For today’s card, I am showcasing the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper that you can earn FREE until Feb 28 with a minimum $50 purchase (prior to S/H and tax) in my on-line store.

DSP, Designer Series Paper, Favored Flowers DSP, #SAB2023, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Birthday

I love when I can use our gorgeous Designer Series Paper as the star of the card.  This paper is SO pretty, it doesn’t need anything more than a ribbon and a sentiment.   The sentiment is from the Beautifully Happy Stamp set – also FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $100 purchase (prior to S/H and tax).

The sentiment is stamped on a scrap of Basic White in JetBlack StaZon and punched with the Double Oval punch.  A scrap of Petal Pink cardstock was used to punch the scallop oval from the Double Oval punch.  To finish the card, attach a piece of Petal Pink Soft Polyester Ribbon near the bottom and then use a smaller piece of the ribbon to tie a knot around it.  This method allows the ends of the ribbon to lie horizontal on the card.

The base of the card is Thick Basic White and the DSP is attached after the ribbon is attached.  The sentiment is attached using Mini Dimensionals.

Now, a little late, but here is the winner of the Counting Sheep Bundle!

Congratulations to Vonda for winning the Counting Sheep Bundle during my 18th Stampaversary Give Away!  I’ll be in touch soon to get your information to get this in the mail to you!

Thanks so much for joining me today!  Wishing you a great start to your weekend!

Is it Watercolor?

Hi!  Back with a quick card today to show you the gorgeous Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper that you can choose FREE when you place a minimum $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) order in my on-line store.

Sale-A-Bration, Just Because, Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, #SAB2023

So the question is, is this made using Watercolors or is it Paper?  Hard to tell, isn’t it.  It is the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper – the only work I did was to stamp the sentiment and add ribbon.  Gorgeous, right?  You can achieve the same look when you choose this paper as your FREE Sale-a-Bration item when you shop by Feb 28.

The paper is just stunning and your friends and family will think you created a masterpiece – but I promise not to give away your secret.

The base is Starry  Sky cardstock, measuring 4 1/4″ x 11, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.  The Designer Series Paper measure 4″ x 5 1/4″ – and you can get 6 cards from this one sheet!  The sentiment is stamped in Starry Sky ink on a scrap of Basic White card stock.   The ribbon is from the Real Red and Burlap combo pack found in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.

This paper does coordinate with the Dainty Delight Bundle found in the January-April Mini – if you purchase the bundle, you can get the paper FREE!

Shop my on-line store soon so you don’t miss out and start creating stunning cards like this one.

Sending Happy Thoughts

Hi!  How are you?  I hope all is going well.   I’ve been busy and having fun with the Sale-A-Bration products available for FREE with a purchase through Feb 28.

Today, I am sharing a card I made in last week’s Facebook Live featuring the Beautifully Happy Stamp Set that is FREE with a $100 (prior to S/H and tax) purchase.

SAB, Beautifully Happy, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Happy Thoughts, #SAB2023

I had seen a sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenges in my FB feed that I wanted to give a try and this is the result.

This stamp set is a 2-Step stamping set – it contains both the outline images as well as stamps to fill in the image.  The flower outline is stamped in Memento Black ink and the fill-in images are stamped in Flirty Flamingo for the flower and Old Olive for the base of the flower and bud.  The sentiment is also stamped in Memento Black ink.

The base of the card is Flirty Flamingo – measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.  There is a Basic Black mat measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″ and the Basic White stamped layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″.

A relatively simple stamping card – and with the 2-step stamping, very easy to create.  There are times a quick card is needed, and the images and sentiments in this set are perfect for that.

If you have not yet taken advantage of Sale-A-Bration – I urge you to do so soon.  As we get closer to the end of February – we may run out of your favorites – so to ensure you get the FREE items you want, shop today!
