Tomorrow begins the opportunity for you to purchase the coordinating dies that are being special released.  They coordinate with Sale-A-Bration and Mini Catalog stamp sets.  I have the flyers listed at the end of the post.

To showcase one of these die sets, I am sharing with you the coordination of the Positive Thoughts stamp set from the Mini Catalog and the matching Extra Release Dies named Nature Thoughts.  I hope you like them as much as I do!



I used about half of the dies on this card.  The flower, butterfly, feather, decorative strip, and focal layer are all dies from the set.  The background stamp I used also has a matching die as well as a few other small leaves and flowers.  If you look closely at the Merry Merlot center layer beneath the stamping, you can see some decorative perforations.  It is part of that die.  It is really delicate looking.  I should have used one of the lighter colors so it would have shown better.

The colors I chose for this card are for the FABFRI182 Challenge.  Here is the challenge icon.

This was definitely a challenge to use these colors.  LOL!!  But I love what I ended up with.  I used my Stampin’ Write Markers for the butterfly to show a variety of colors.  I also used them on the feather.  I used the Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana and it more blended than showed the two different colors.  I really hate that you cannot order individual Stampin’ Write Markers.  They are so perfect for coloring on the red rubber stamps.

The background leaves are stamped originally in Bermuda Bay ink and then stamped a few times more without re-inking.  I love the look that gives.

Thank you very much for checking out today’s project.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another new one.  And don’t forget the Ultimate Shopping Experience with the Starter Kit and AWESOME Join Promotion currently going on.  Who doesn’t love over $200.00 in products for $99.00!!!  I would love to go over all of the particulars and advantages with you.

The Ultimate Bundle is the Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit.  During Sale-A-Bration you get the extra value for your $99.00.  If you have a wish list or are ready to place an order and it totals close to 99.00, please read this first.
