Sale-A-Bration 2019

Enjoy Life stamp set with Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper Card

Petal Promenade designer series paper and the Enjoy Life stamp set

 

Photorealistic designer series paper is not always my thing.  I just have not figured out how to use it well.  However, the Petal Promenade designer series paper from the Annual catalog is gorgeous!  I have used it a lot.  The colors work well together, and it carries a card so well.

 

On this project, I have chosen to pair it with the Enjoy Life stamp set, also from the Annual catalog.  It has some really great sentiments.  I especially like this one.

 

Petal Promenade designer series paper and the Share What You Love embellishment kit are FREE with a qualifying purchase until March 31st!

 

Since Sale-A-Bration is almost over -- GASP!! -- I wanted to get a little more use out of the extras that have been added as FREE gifts with purchase.  Did you know you can get this gorgeous paper FREE?  A whole pack of it!  In addition, you can get the Share What You Love embellishment kit FREE as well.  This little box is packed full of hidden gems, including this beautiful laser cut tag, which I used for the sentiment, and the adorable mini paper clip used as an accent.

 

 

 

To recreate this card:

  • cut a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock and score at 5 1/2"
  • cut a 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Petal Promenade designer series paper
  • cut a 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of gold glimmer paper

 

Using the large scallop die from the Seasonal Layers thinlits, die cut a long scalloped edge on the designer series paper and glimmer paper before layering on your card.  Tie a piece of gold sequin ribbon around a mini paper clip, than tie it to the tag with a piece of Calypso Coral ombre ribbon.  Add some gold sequins for a finishing touch.

 

This card is quite simple to make and comes together quickly.  What do you think?  Try making a card with photorealistic paper and share it with me.  I would love to see it!

Well Said meets So Hoppy Together

The Well Said bundle paired with the FREE So Hoppy Together stamp set.

 

Today I am sharing one of my favorite bundles from the 2019 Occasions catalog called Well Said.  This is a huge stamp set, with a coordinating die set called Well Written.  This bundle allows you to create custom sentiments and greetings galore for any project.  And I love the script font of the dies!  They can be purchased separately, or in a bundle at a discount!

 

 

I have chosen to pair it up with the So Hoppy Together sale-a-bration stamp set.  It's adorable, and you can get it FREE through the end of this month with a qualifying order.  Do you love FREE stuff?  

 

The Well Written dies are not only versatile, but so easy to customize.  I was quickly able to create the perfect play on words for my sentiment by cutting out the 'a' in happy, and replacing it with the 'o' cut from the love die, to make this punny greeting.

 

Easily create custom sentiments and greetings with the Well Said bundle.

 

To recreate this card:

  • Cut a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2"
  • Cut a piece of Call Me Clover designer series paper 3 3/4" x 5"
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"

 

I used a sponge brayer with Pool Party ink to add a bit of color along the bottom edge of the Whisper White layer, than added the lily pad, which was cut using the Layering Ovals framelits.  After stamping the frog, I colored him with Granny Apple Green and Pineapple Punch Blends, did a little fussy cutting, and put him on his lily pad with a dimensional.  A Flirty Flamingo flower cut from the Well Written dies was the perfect accent on the lily pad.

 

The Well Said bundle is quickly becoming a staple in my card making.  Click on the link below to get your bundle today, and you can choose the So Hoppy Together stamp set FREE as your Sale-A-Bration item!  While you are in my store, gather the rest of your supplies to create a punny card, and share it with me.  I would love to see what you create!

Color Fusers Blog Hop March 2019

Tea Together stamp set with the FREE Sale-A-Bration Tea Time framelit dies and Country Floral embossing folder.  The Delicate Lace edgelit dies add a gorgeous edge detail!

 

I am happy to be hopping with the Color Fusers this month!  Join us the first Monday of each month as we create using the same color palate.  This month includes one of my favorites, Gorgeous Grape!

 

 

Color Fusers March 2019: Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Smoky Slate

 

I love the teapot in the Tea Together stamp set from the 2019 Occasions catalog.  And as part of the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion, the coordinating Tea Time Framelit dies are FREE with a qualifying purchase! 

 

This month, I choose to create an elegant card using shimmery white cardstock, and used the Smoky Slate for depth, allowing the Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape to add the perfect pop of color.

 

Tea Together stamp set, Tea Time framelits, Country Floral embossing folder and Delicate Lace edgelit dies

 

To recreate this card:

  • Cut a Shimmery White card base 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2"
  • Die cut the left edge of the cardbase with the Delicate Lace edgelit die
  • Cut a Shimmery White layer 3 1/2" x 5 1/4" and emboss using the FREE Country Floral Sale-A-Bration embossing folder
  • Cut a 1/2" x 3 1/2" strip of Smoky Slate cardstock
  • Use a Highland Heather ink wash over Shimmery White cardstock, than stamp and die cut the teapot and flowers

 

 

An ink wash, pieces from the Delicate Lace edgelit dies, and the flowers from the Tea Time die set add perfect details.

 

The ink wash gives the teapot a subtle bit of color.  I added more ink to the wash for the flowers.  To create depth, layer several Smoky Slate teapots behind the white tea pot.  Little die cut scraps from the Delicate Lace edgelit die work perfectly to add detail to the teapot.  A strip of Smoky Slate cardstock grounds the teapot and adds a great base for the Gorgeous Grape striped ribbon.  For the finishing touch, I added some Glitter Enamel Dots to the centers of the flowers.

 

I hope you like it!  Thanks for hopping along today.  Next up is Bonnie O'Neill at Bonnie Stamps.  She always has a great project to share, check it out!
