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.

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!

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.

Kindness for GDP222

I have been trying to figure out a project using the Best Dressed Suite of products.  When I saw the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #222 the other day, I looked at the the Designer Series Paper, Best Dressed, and had the card in my head.  Sometimes those ideas do not end up as I see them in my head, but this one did!

 

 

Here is the sketch my card is based on.

 

If you have not looked through this gorgeous DSP, I hope you will check it out in the catalog.  It is on page 55 of the Mini Catalog.  The colors are so vibrant.  I have used both sides of one of the sheets of paper on this card.

The die cut I have the sentiment in is the perfume bottle label.  Stampin’ Up! planned wonderfully and had a couple of the sentiments fit inside it.  I added the single flower, which also has a matching die, for some dimension.

Measurements:

  • card base is 4 1/4 X 11
  • Whisper White layer is 4 1/8 X 5 3/8
  • Bottom DSP layer is 2 1/4 X 4 1/8
  • Top DSP layer is 3 3/4 X 4

 

The price for the Dressed To Impress Bundle is 47.50.  With a package of Stampin’ Dimensionals, you are a little over the 50.00 needed for a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Enjoy these great products and get another one FREE!

I love all of the coordinating stamps and dies.  Have you seen the flyers regarding some new dies that will be available in February?  I have them showing just below my host code.  They match some of the new stamp sets.  WOOHOO!!  And if you do not have the new catalogs and do not currently have a Demonstrator, please reach out to me.  I will be happy to get the catalogs to you.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I have all of the supplies I used at the bottom of the page.

Simple Get Well

I have a quick and simple  Get Well card or Thinking of You type card to share today.  Sometimes it seems we need these type cards on short notice.  I like to have some of these on hand so I can send them right away.  My memory isn’t what it used to be!! LOL!!

 

Stampin' Up!, Healing Hugs, Inspiring Iris, Jackie Beers

 

Fussy cutting may not be your idea of fun.  But this rose and leaves actually are easy to cut out.  I stamped them originally on a layer and just didn’t like the look, so out came the paper snips.

The sentiment is from one of my new favorite stamp sets, Inspiring Iris.  It is layered using the Story Label Punch and the Timeless Label punch.

The gorgeous background paper is from the Christmastime Is Here Designer Series Paper.  I have used it with the Christmas Rose set.  But isn’t it great to see that it works on a non Christmas card?  Another reason to purchase the bundle of products.

Thanks for visiting today.  Please return tomorrow.  I am participating tin the Pals Blog Hop by Mary Fish.
