Hi (that’s all)!

Love this sentiment in the Party Pants Sale-A-Bration set!  So fun!  I paired it with the Pedal Pusher stamp set (also a Sale-A-Bration set!) for this card:

SU! Pedal Pushers, Party Pants

You can choose either of these sets FREE with a $50 purchase (US – prior to S/H and tax).  But HURRY!!!  Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st (YES, TOMORROW!!).  The designer series paper is also from Sale-A-Bration – the Wildflower Fields DSP.  So many choices!  Don’t forget, for each $50 you spend, you get 1 free item!  So, you can earn both stamp sets with a $100 purchase OR you can get all 3 products FREE with a $150 purchase (plus you also get $15  in FREE merchandise!)   You can shop my on-line store here:

Teresa’s Stampin’ Store

I also used the 2014-2016 In Colors which are retiring soon!  So, if you haven’t yet gotten your card stock or re-inkers – add those into your order – because I’ll warn you now, as soon as the retiring list is announced, those items will fly off the shelves!  Your retiring colors are:

  • Blackberry Bliss
  • Hello Honey
  • Lost Lagoon
  • Mossy Meadow
  • Tangelo Twist

Whatever your pleasure or style, don’t miss out on these exclusive products!

What I Love

Sale-A-Bration is wrapping up and I just wanted to thank all those that have supported my business during the past three months.  If you haven’t placed your Sale-A-Bration order, yet, you only have 4 days left to do so!

This is one of the cards we made at the last Sale-A-Bration series class – it was FREE for anyone who had placed a $50 order with me in the beginning of March.  The images are all from the What I Love stamp set – which you can choose FREE with a $50 (US – prior to S/H and tax) purchase.  Love the font for the sentiments in this set.

SU! What I Love

To give my background a little interest, we embossed the panel with the Elegant Dots embossing folder and then used the de-bossed side.  It almost looks like paper piercing.  Just another way to get more from your embossing folders!


The colors used in today’s card are Calypso Coral, Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky.  The outline of the flower was stamped full strength in Calypso Coral while the “filler” stamp was stamped off on scrap before being stamped on the card stock.  Great way to create matching tones for 2 or 3 step stamping.

What Do You Do…

When you bring an outline stamp and full ink pads – but no blender pens or markers with which to color the image?

That was my dilemma when I sat down to stamp with the Flowering Fields stamp set (you can choose this set FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 purchase (US) prior to S/H and tax) and realized that full color ink pads weren’t going to work to color in the pretty flowers since I forgot to bring a blender pen or an aqua painter to use with the ink pads.  And, since I also didn’t bring along the coordinating markers, what was one to do?

Here is my solution: Acrylic Block Stamping!  Yes, this worked out just well – I could use the acrylic block to create a color background for my flowers!  What do you think?

SU! Flowering Fields, Suite Sayings

For this first card, I used Blackberry Bliss – I stamped the block on scrap paper a few times to lighten the background so that the flower would show.  While it is hard to see, the two corner panels are Blackberry Bliss while the flower image is matted on Basic Black.  The sentiment is my favorite from the Suite Sayings stamp set found in the Occasions Catalog.

SU! Flowering Fields, Suite Sayings

The second card uses Calypso Coral as my background color.  For this one, I made a bigger front panel and added a little of the Thick Baker’s Twine in Calypso Coral to match.  The sentiment is also from the Suite Sayings stamp set.

SU! Flowering Fields, Suite Sayings

The third card in the series uses Hello Honey for my background.  Went with a full panel for the front on this one.   The ribbon I had wanted to use didn’t really work – it would have worked better if I had used Very Vanilla instead of Whisper White (but I didn’t bring that color with me).

Lastly, we have this card using Lost Lagoon:

SU! Flowering Fields, Wildflower Fields DSP

I liked this pattern from the coordinating Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper (FREE as a Sale-A-Bration item with a $50 (US) purchase prior to S/H and tax) so decided to go with that to finish off my card.  So, what do you think, an alternative to coloring outline images when you forget to bring something with which to color.  Think you’ll give it a try?

I had fun coming up with ways to stamp with the limited supplies I brought with me – but will be happy to be back in my own crafting space with all my toys, I mean, tools, to use.

Hope you found some inspiration from today’s post and a way to keep stamping when what you had originally planned doesn’t quite work out!

It’s A High Flying….

Birthday Wish!  Getting ready for Friday night’s Birthday Bash – one of my most popular events – as guests make 15 birthday cards that they can use through out the year.  The background is once again stamped with the Watercolor Wash background stamp. Seriously, if you do not yet own this stamp, put it on your wish list!  It makes such easy backgrounds!

Stampin' Up! Sky is the Limit, Watercolor Wash

I am also very fond of the Sky is The Limit Sale-A-Bration set.  Will be sad to see it go on Feb 15 – yes, that is right – you only have until Feb 15 to earn this set for FREE!!  What are you waiting for?  It is an awesome set that can be used for birthday cards, Valentine/Anniversary, graduation, etc.  And it can be your’s FREE when you place a $50 merchandise order (prior to S/H and tax for those in the US!)

Ok, back to the card – this is the masculine card we are making tomorrow night – very quick (other than hand-cutting the plane – which isn’t that hard).  The plane, sentiment and smoke trail are all stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.  The sky is Soft Sky and the grass is Pear Pizzazz.  The plane, as mentioned, is hand cut and popped up with dimensionals.

I am in need of quite a few birthday cards – since I just joined the #imbringingbirthdaysback movement.  Social media has made it so easy for us to wish someone a happy birthday by posting to their wall, etc., that the sending of actual cards to wish someone a happy birthday has declined.  So, if you would like to receive a birthday card from me, please comment below and I’ll be in touch to get your birth date and address.

Flying By

with a birthday wish.  Hi!  How are you today?  Have you gotten any crafting time in yet this year?  It has been fun stamping and just playing around with all the new goodies in the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  This card uses the Sky is the Limit Sale-A-Bration set – this set is only around until February 15th – so don’t miss out!  You can get this set for FREE with a minimum $50 purchase (prior to S/H and tax). There are a few other products only available through Feb 15 as well.

HBPlane_smallAs you can see, I am still working on birthday cards – as February is chock full of them for me – especially for the males in my family.  You could easily change this into a Valentine’s card by using the sentiment “You send me Soaring” in place of the Happy Birthday – maybe color the heart red and there you go.   I dressed up the card with a little of the new two toned Baker’s Twine found in the Occasions’s catalog.

New Weekly Deals were announced today!  The sentiment set Something To Say is a great set to have on hand and at 25% off – a great deal, too!   You save 25% on these products for the next week!
