Select Sale-A-Bration Item Available While Supplies Lasts

Redemption numbers for the following Sale-A-Bration product have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong. Our inventory for this popular item is not yet completely depleted, but we wanted you to be aware that they are going fast and may not be available through the entire Sale-A-Bration period.

Butterfly Elements 149711

These little wooden butterflies, flowers and leaves have endless uses, i.e. as is, as a layer with a paper image or colored or heat embossed. I have lots of projects in my mind fighting to get out but unfortunately my husband brought home Influenza A for Valentine’s last week and it has hit me hard.

You can earn the butterfly elements for free during Sale-a-Bration with $50 purchase while supplies last!

Sadly the Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets sold out on February 15.

Good news is that new items became available on February 15 which you can see HERE.

Also there are now some new products that coordinate with the Sale-a-bration stamps sets from the earlier release – think framelts galor! You can see those new items starting on March 1 when they become available to customers.

Thank you for stopping by. Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Petal Promenade “One Sheet Wonder” – Part 2

Greetings my stamping friends. My apologies for the long silence. This week flew by due to the excitement of bringing a new dog into our family who we rescued from one of our local animal shelters last weekend. Her name is Josie (“JoJo”) and our other dog Ella has finally accepted her as one of the family (as long as JoJo doesn’t try to get one of her treats or eat her food, that is).

At long last I have completed and photographed for sharing with you my second “one sheet wonder” project. My apologies again for the delay and also if the images are not up to par. I tried using my old Sony Cybershot digital camera and a watermark program due to space issues on my iPhone. I think my iPhone actually takes better pictures … how about you?

The last one shown is the prior card I submitted for a challenge. My card wasn’t chosen as a winner ….

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that were used in the first five (5) cards which can quickly be added to your shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails below:

If you have any questions regarding the design elements of any of these cards, just ask. My tutorials and projects are shared with you for FREE!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Petal Promenade “One Sheet Wonder”

Greetings my stamping friends. I have finally finished one of the “one sheet wonder” projects I have been working on the past several days. What is a “one sheet wonder” project you ask? Well, simply put it uses one sheet of designer series paper to create a series of cards or scrapbook pages.

I chose one sheet from the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper 12 x 12 pack — the one that had a bunch of square and rectangle “frames” made out of flowers. I was able to create nine (9) cards from this one sheet of DSP as follows:

So tell me what you think? My struggle was what ribbons or other embellishments to use on the cards. I think I like the white ones without the ribbons but perhaps I just didn’t have the “right” ribbon for this particular design.

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of these cards which can be added to your shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails below:

Product List

If you have any questions as to the design elements on any particular card, do not hesitate to ask. I provide my tutorials to you for FREE. You simply just need to ask.

I am working on a second “one sheet wonder” collection of cards using another sheet of DSP from this same pack. Stay tuned for that post to come soon.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Happiness Blooms for Incredible Like You

Greetings my stamping friends. Whether you are a new crafter just discovering the wonderful products available from Stampin’ Up! or you are a seasoned Stampin’ Up! customer, you will love just how well the products and colors coordinate so well with each other. I know that I do!

I wanted to make a “quick and easy” project today using either some designer series paper or Memories & More cards as my focal point. I decided “why not use both?” so that’s exactly what I did!

As you can see there is minimal stamping involved and actually very little in supplies used. I even got “daring” and mounted my center piece a little off kilter which drives my ADD a little nuts but is all the rage these days. I wish you could see the embossed shine on the Memories & More card – it’s just beautiful!

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card which can be added to your shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails below:

ORGANDY RIBBON COMBO PACK SOLD OUT

Update from the Stampin’ Up! Home Office:

“The Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (item 149623) may be one of our most popular Sale-A-Bration items ever. It’s been so popular, in fact, that it has exceeded our product forecast and sold out in our North American markets. We have a shipment coming in to fulfill backorders, but because this item has been in such high demand, we have been forced to turn off the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack. Unfortunately, this initial shipment will help us fulfill only orders that have already been placed. Once backorders have been fulfilled, a second shipment will arrive at the beginning of March, which will allow us to turn on this item again; it will be available while supplies last only.

We’re so sorry for the inconvenience.”

If you have this ribbon on your wish list stay tuned. I will update you once the item is available again for purchase.

More posts to share later. Until then, stamp on my friends.

A Lasting Lily With Sympathy

Greetings my stamping friends. Yikes what a cold weekend we are having here in North Central Texas! As is typical for Texas weather, the temperatures will once again climb into the 60’s by the middle of the week. Some parts of North Texas got enough snow to make a snowball, but at my house we didn’t see a single flake.

I am sharing with you today another card that I started a day or more ago that I had to let sit to make sure it was “done”. The trend right now is #simplestamping which I guess is the new hashtag for “less is more” in the stamping arena. I personally love using bling, ribbons, layers and die cuts on my projects so it is going to take me a while to adjust to this concept. However, I think today’s card could fall into this category.

What do you think?

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card which can be added to your shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails below. (NOTE: Two of the products are Sale-a-Bration items and can only be earned according to their level value.)

Product List

The Lasting Lily stamp set is a Level 2 item and is FREE with a $100 purchase (before shipping and taxes. The Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack is a Level 1 item and is FREE with a $50 purchase (before shipping and taxes).

If you have any questions regarding any design elements of this card, do not hesitate to ask me. I gladly share my projects for FREE.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
