So Sweet

We are about one third way through the Sale-A-Bration period.  I thought I would give some extra love to some of my favorite pieces.  I am focusing on the Little Ladybug stamp set.

 

 

I think the ladybugs are just so darn cute!!  And the best part is the stamp set is FREE with a $300.00 order or a party that totals at least $300.00 where you are the Host.  This is on top of the FREE items you can get for every $50.00 you spend.  Woohoo!!

To make this card even better, I used the soon to be released coordinating Ladybug Dies.  They will be released on February 4th .  You can see the flyer just below the post.  There are a few other coordinating dies for SAB and the Occasions Catalogs.  The beginning of February is a perfect time for a party!!  I hope you will give me a call and let’s set one up.

OK, on to the particulars of the card.  The base is a seldom used color that fit perfectly.  It is Call Me Clover and is an In Color that retires this coming June.  It is a perfect Spring, Saintt. Patrick’s Day type green.  I also used several SAB products for this card.  The black and white DSP is the reverse of a sheet from the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper, another FREE SAB item.

I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with my Stampin’ Blends.  They were then die cut using the Ladybugs Dies.  I have them early from a perk for being a Demonstrator.  I raised the ladybug with dimensionals but glued down the flower.

I have a list of all of the colors of Stampin’ blends listed in the Supply List. Thank you for stopping by today.

Congratulations with Poppies

I made this card for a friend’s retirement.  But this card would work for most occasions and comes together in a flash.  The beautiful designer series paper is the focal point.  I hated to cut into this sheet because it looks like something that should be framed!  If I save it then only I get to see it, so I decided to share it with you and my friend for all to enjoy.

 

Stampin' Up!, Peaceful Moments, Painted Labels, Peaceful Poppies, Jackie Beers

 

To be so pretty it is awesome to say that this card takes about five minutes to make.  As I mentioned above, the hardest part is cutting this beautiful paper.  I layered it on Poppy Parade Card Stock and then onto Thick Whisper White.

The stamped sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  It is a wonderful group of sentiments and they are in a variety of fonts.  That is something I especially love!  I die cut the Congratulations using one of the dies from the Painted Labels Dies.  Again , that is a “you really need” set of dies!!

The ribbon is from the Annual Catalog and is the Textured Weave Ribbon.  It comes in Poppy Parade, Smoky Slate, and Granny Apple Green.

Aloha

I am sharing with you today my first play with the Tropical Oasis Suite of products.  I am in love once again.  The stamp set and dies are awesome, the Designer Series Paper is Beautiful, and the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder is out of this world!  It is my new favorite embossing folder.

 

Coastal Weave, Timeless Tropical, Painted Labels, Stampin' Up!, Jackie Beers

 

The Coastal Weave Embossing Folder does a thatched weave, which is gorgeous, but the extra textures in the weaves is over the top.  You will need the 3D Embossing Folder Plate for this and all of the newer embossing folders.  For the perfect embossed piece ,the $10.00 price is not a major deal breaker.

Besides the gorgeous embossed layer, I have added a piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper and some of the Braided Burlap Trim.  There just wasn’t enough texture going on already! LOL!!!

For the focal point, I paired stamps and dies from the Timeless Tropical Bundle with the swirly base from the Painted Labels Dies.   I colored the palm trees and pineapple using Stampin’ Write Markers. And I will say that I too hate you cannot purchase markers individually.  However, when it comes to the red rubber stamps, the markers are a must have to use on stamps that require more than one color.  My pineapple is a little unique looking.  I was trying to copy the one in the Mini Catalog on page 38.  But I got a bit more of the Terracotta Tile Marker than I intended.  However, it is my pineapple and it can be a little unique!

Stampin’ Write Markers used: Garden Green, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Terracotta Tile, Daffodil Delight.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I appreciate you following my blog and hope you will return tomorrow.  Before you go, the full supply list is at the bottom of the post.  And the chance for the Ultimate Shopping Spree is spelled out for you in the next paragraph.

New Beginnings

The card I am sharing today is made with the Power of Hope stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  In case you are not aware of what Sale-A-Bration is I have a quick explanation.  During January – March when you purchase $50.00 in product (before shipping and tax) you get to choose a FREE product (Level 1) from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  And you can continue choosing more for each additional $50.00.  There are some items that are Level 2 and they require a $100.00 purchase.  These level 2 items are usually dies and punches.

Now on to the card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Power of Hope, Poppy Parade, Love What You Do, Jackie Beers

 

The base of this card is Thick Whisper White card stock to better show of the bright Poppy Parade colors.  It begins with the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.   I layered each piece with Old Olive card stock.

The background of the focal stamp is from the Love What You Do Stamp set.  I love the watercolor look of that stamp.  It shows off the simple black ink stamped image.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I very much appreciate it.  I hope you can enjoy your weekend and return next week for more projects.

Lovely Birthday

Today I have a quick Birthday card to share using the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper and a wonderful new punch.

 

Stampin' Up!, Pressed Petals, Layered Leaves, Stitched Rectangles, Label Me Lovely, Jackie Beers

 

I had this Blackberry Bliss Stitched Rectangle frame laying on my desk from a previous card and decided to put it to use.  I cut the Pressed Petals DSP to fit the frame and my card was started.  As a play on the petals, I used the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder to emboss a Pear Pizzaz layer.

The focal point, I believe, is the new Label Me Lovely Punch.  I love that it is more square and will fit a taller sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Layered With Kindness stamp set from the Mini Catalog.  It is stamped in Mossy Meadow but the decorative part is outlined with Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blend.  I anchored the sentiment with the Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I love using leftover pieces for a card. I hope you do as well.  Before you go, please check out the Ultimate Shopping Spree I have outlined below.  I would love to talk with you about it.

Okay about the card…….  I love Fun Fold cards and found this Buckle Card on Pinterest  the other day.  The video I watched was by CindyLeeBeeDesigns.  I did not provide instructions since she did a great video for you to checkout. You can click the link to go to her video.

 

Stampin' Up!, Lovely Lily Pad, Buckle card, Jackie Beers

 

I paired the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set with the Lily Impressions Designer Series paper.  Both are Sale-A-Bration items.  I also used the Special February Release item of Lily Pad Dies.  You can see the special release flyer at the bottom of the post.

Of course I generally get my color choices out of the DSP, and that was what I did here.  I mixed Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Pool Party and Pretty Peacock card stocks.  I also used Flirty Flamingo for the Lily.  I stamped it with Flirty Flamingo Ink and then colored the shadow parts with the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend.

The sentiment is from a new stamp set in the Mini Catalog named Thanks for the Laughs.  It is a great group of sentiments.  And these fit perfectly above and below the buckle strap.  To finish off the card I used the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

And here is a view of the Buckle part.

 

 

I will say I made a mistake on the buckle flap.  I scored at 1/2″ instead of 1/4″. I did not think it was a big deal since the length was long enough to go through the slot.  After attaching the lily though, the 1/4″ shorter length makes it a bit more difficult to get the buckle back through the slot.  So keep that in mind when you try this.  And I hope you will!!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope your day is as special as you are!

Life Is Short

Anyone that knows me well at all is familiar with my love of purses and shoes.  My shoes are more on the comfortable side (Birkenstocks and Hoka tennis shoes).  When I saw the sentiment in the Dress To Impress stamp set regarding buy the shoes, I was sold!  The humor along with a favorite thing was just perfect.

 

Stampin' Up!, dress To Impress, Jackie Beers, Best Dressed, Stitched All Around, Purple Posy

 

Does this sentiment speak to you like it did me?  I am a firm believer in life is short and to enjoy the things you love.  Those high heels would not be going home with me, but I can still admire the look of them.   One thing I do love is the Best Dressed Suite of products.

The Best Dressed 6X6 Designer Series Paper is as beautiful as all of Stampin’ Up!’s DSP.  One side is purses, shoes, perfume, and the other side is like this striped pattern.  I tend to go with the “opposite” sides of the DSP.  I pulled my color combination directly from the DSP.  It is one of my favorite ways to plan a card.

The thought of “Buy the shoes” made me think of a gift card for someone to purchase their choice of shoes.  So I went with my go to gift card holder.  Here is a view of the inside.

 

 

Oops on me for the Book gift card.  A tip I always give when making a gift card holder is to place the card as you are securing that layer.  It allows the extra space you need for a card so it is not a tight fit when you do add one.  I forgot to take this one out.  I promise that when the card is delivered it will have the appropriate card inside!  🙂

There are several gift card holders in my Gallery at the top of the page.  You can search for them and see different versions of this style.  It is very easy to do and holds a gift card perfectly.

The Cats Meow

I have received my preorder of the new releases for February that I have showing at the bottom of the post.  One of my favorites, (WELL, truthfully I love all of them!), is the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper.  It is designed to match punches in the Sale-A-Bration and Mini Catalogs.  To showcase it I have a card I paired the DSP with an Annual Catalog stamp set.

 

Stampin' Up!, Nine Lives, Pleased As Punch, Retro, Jackie Beers

 

I adore this DSP!  It takes me back to the late 60’s when I had a pair of jeans that looked pretty much like this paper.  Yikes!  The DSP pairs with the Small Bloom Punch in the SAB catalog.  It is going to carry over to the next Annual Catalog, so keep that in mind when choosing your SAB rewards!!

This card is for a young lady who loves cats and I was thinking of her when I was creating.  So I paired a fun paper with the cute Nine Lives stamp set.  It’s a simple card but with a layout that has unending possibilities.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please return tomorrow for another new project.

Kerchief Cards

I am sharing one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration products today.  It is the Kerchief Card Kit.  Usually when I use these Kits from the catalogs, I add extra items in addition to the kit supplies.  For these samples, I stuck strictly to the supplies given.

 

 

I did used products included in the kit, but I did not copy the cards in the brochure.  They are similar, but I added and moved pieces around.  Overall I give this kit a grade A!  They were quick, easy, and fun to play with.

When I finish the other four, I will do my usual and add other items.  I will share those with you as well and refer back to this post so you can compare.

I have taken the Paper Pumpkin kits on trips with me so I do not go into stamping withdrawal.  This kit would be a great one to take as all you need are a pair of paper snips for the ribbon as an addition.

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will come back for a new project on Monday!  I am hoping for no rain this weekend.  I hope your weekend goes as you want.

Someone Special

You could say I am carrying over yesterday’s Valentine Blog Hop with InKing Royalty.  I have made a sweet and loving card using the new stamp set Special Someone.  It is an accurate name for an adorable set.  It reminds me of the Nature’s Beauty stamp set that was in the Holiday Catalog and carried over.

 

Stampin' Up!, Someone Special, Stitched So Sweetly, Bird Ballad, Jackie Beers

 

This card was made with the First Sketch from Mary Fish’s Stampin’ Pretty Sketchbook.  #sps001.  She shared the sketch on 01/13/2020.  Here is the sketch.

I noticed in the Mini Catalog samples for Special Someone that the Squirrel and the Rat are facing each other.  And even though I really, really, really dislike rats or mice, I do love the set. So they were my little love couple.  The lovebirds are cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I love the scalloped edge.  And with the stitching they are very easy to adjust the size, which is what I had to do to shorten the piece for fit the couple.

I used a solid piece of Calypso Coral card stock behind the loverbirds and layered it on top of a great piece of DSP from the Bird Ballads Designer Series Paper.  The Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread are perfect partners.  I needed something for the dots on the DSP so pulled out the faithful pearls.  I colored them with the Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  If you have not tried this, you really should.  They dry almost immediately and you can then have dots in any color you need.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.
