Sale a Bration

Oh So Delicate Dahlias

The Delicate Dahlia photopolymer stamp set is an absolute treasure! It is a one of the items you can earn for FREE in the Sale-a-Bration catalog! (now through 9/30/21 with a qualifying purchase) I wanted to make a sweet and simple card using this set to show how to create beautiful cards with few items!

I started with one of my favorite color pallets! Smoky Slate has been a favorite neutral background for me for years! And my favorite color is lavender- so Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather fit the bill!

I chose to use a tone on tone (same ink color on the same cardstock color) for the Smoky Slate background and stamped the lined images from the stamp set. The focal point pieces will cover any overlapping stamped images in the center. Once the background was stamped, I took a piece 4 1/4″x 3″ of Basic White and stamped the lined image with Gorgeous Grape first. I find that the lined image in a dark color is easier to line up with the “fill” stamp. Next, I adhered the mat piece of Highland Heather to the Basic White piece. Then I placed Dimensionals on the back to pop it up on the card base for more depth.

I wanted to keep the dahlia the focal point, so I used a small die from the Tasteful Labels dies and a bow made from Linen thread. Wink of Stella clear was the final step to finish this card.

This is a great card to make multiples of so you can have some on hand! Be sure to take advantage of the Sale-A-Bration sale!

Delicate Daisy Garden

Don’t you just love a stamp set that is all in one and can make such an impact on your finished project? I fell in love with the Daisy Garden background stamp when I saw the sneak peek of the Annual Catalog! And it coordinates well with our daisy punches and the Daisy Lane stamp set perfectly! Just imagine all the cards, pages, and other creative projects you can dream up!

This card was simple to make, it just took a little bit to color with the Watercolor Pencil Assortment. It was soooo worth it too! I first stamped the daisies on the 4″x 5 1/4″ Smoky Slate piece using Basic Gray ink. Then I took out the Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive watercolor pencils and colored the images. I will tell you these are my favorite watercolor pencils! They blend and make gorgeous watercolor wash backgrounds! You have to have both assortments in your stash!

To make the image look more like a watercolor, I used the Blender Pens to blend the colors on the images. I used a pair of Paper Snips to rough the edges of the cardstock. The sentiment was cut out using the very handy Dual Oval punch! I chose a Birthday sentiment from another set and tied the Whisper White crinkle ribbon around the card mat before adhering it to the Basic Gray card base. (5 1/2″x 8 1/2″) . The finishing touch was using my Basic Black Dark Blend and tapping it on my Bone Folder to create the splatter! Such a fun card to make and simple enough to make several!

Simple Peony Card

The NEW Prized Peony suite is just gorgeous! The Peony dies make realistic peony paper flowers with ease. The Prized Peony set has simple sentiments, detailed stamps, and a touch of background whimsy! The colors in the suite are create a soft feel- Petal Pink, Whisper White, Gray Granite, and Basic Gray.

To make this super easy card, you will fold a piece of Gray Granite (5 1/2 x 8 1/2) card stock and crease it with your Bone Folder. Next, stamp the grunge diamond pattern randomly with Gray Granite ink (stamped off once) onto your card stock base. Then stamp the larger peony on a piece of Whisper White (4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″) using Petal Pink ink. There is a scalloped border in the Peony Dies set that I used to cut the Whisper White piece at the bottom. Then take a piece of the Peony Garden DSP cut @ 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and adhere that to your card base. Place Dimensionals on the back of the Whisper White piece that has the peony stamped on it and adhere that on the card base. Next, you will fold a 4″ piece of the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon in half and adhere to the card with Glue Dots. Chose your sentiment and shape to finish off your card! I used the die from the Perfect Parcel to cut out a sentiment in this set.

Ornate Daisy

I am super thrilled that the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is now available for all of us! The Ornate Garden suite was one of the first glimpse that we were able to play with until now! I made this card for our Mystery Zoom Stamp Event! (you should join us! Next one is June 19th 8PM (CST) sign up at Laura’s Stampin’ Up site!)

I make a power point of hints that we all go through via Zoom! I will send out an email with the suggested sizes and items to have on hand. You use what you have on hand and it’s ok that it’s retired or not SU! So it’s a FREE event! Local or out of town! Great for those that don’t feel ready to venture out too! We can even do a party for you and your friends!

Ok, now for the card. This was another Mini-Z Fold card and I love how it turned out! It was super simple to make.

To create this Half Z Fold:

9”x 5 ½ ” card base of your color choice. Score at 1 7/8″ and at 4 7/8″

2 designs of coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) or patterned paper: Main Focal pattern: 2 ¾ ” X 5 ¼” & another with that same pattern 1 ¼ “ x 5 ¼ “; another pattern cut to 1 ½” x 5 ¼”

•2 5/8” x 5-1/4” Whisper White for inside the card.

Adhere your matching 2 DSP pieces to the card base to the front part of the card and the smaller on the right-hand side. –Adhere the Whisper White next to that flush with the 5 ½ side. –Add the last piece of DSP to the small fold.

The base card measurements appear strange, but this fits perfectly in an A2 envelope! I just stamped the daisy from the Ornate Garden stamp set with Memento Black. Next, I cut it out with a larger oval from the Stitched Shapes dies. I used the Smoky Slate light blends marker to give some depth to the flower petals. I also used Wink of Stella to make some sparkle! I finished it off with a simple sentiment and a Linen Thread Bow!

Are you ready to order from the new catalog??? I have a host code for any order under $150 (if your order is over that- you should enjoy the host benefits or sign up!)

Plus I will send you a thank you gift!

Most just join to be a hobby demonstrator and enjoy the perks of 20% off your purchases, pre-order and sneak peek, and you get to be a part of our Crafting Corner Team! (private FB page, quarterly gatherings, and lots of laughs)

It’s a bundle bash! On top of the $125 in product you pick from any current selections, you also get to select any stamp/tool bundle from the new 2020–2021 Annual Catalog for FREE. All for just $99!! And you don’t have to meet your first quarter minimum until 9/30/2020!

You can also host a party and get extra this month too! When you host a party or place an order that totals $250 or more-you get an additional $25 in FREE product!
