Sale-a-bration - Fun Fold with Petal Parade

Petal_parade_tagtopper
This was one of our club cards last month and my gals loved it. We used Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe along with a splash of Basic Black.

The images in the Sale-a-bration set Petal Parade were stamped randomly along the Whisper White panel.  The gals were able to choose the greeting of their choice from Just Sayin' and cut it out with the coordinating Word Bubble Framelits. 

Petal_parade_scalloped_closure_group

We tied our card closed with the Crisp Cantaloupe Baker's Twine in the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack.  You have six days left to earn your FREE Sale-a-bration goodies.  Go to my online store at www.shoppingwithbarb.com to place your orders.

The Dotted Scallopd Ribbon Punch was used to add the trim under the striped Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper.

You're Lovely Sour Cream Container

Here's a little treat I included in the orders from a recent workshop.  They are called Sour Cream Containers and they are really easy to make. 

  Youre_lovely_sourcreme1

Start with a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 piece of card stock or Designer Series Paper.  I chose the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration Brochure.

Add Sticky Strip to both long sides and one short side.

Youre_lovely_sourcreme2
Remove the protective layers on the Sticky Strip and attach the short sides together to create a tube.  Pinch one end together to create a  pouch, fill with a few treats and pinch the open end together opposite of the first end.

Youre_lovely_sourcreme3

I created my tag with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  I used a 1-1/2" wide strip so the tag is a bit smaller.  I stamped it with one of the flower images from the Petal Parade Sale-a-bration set and then used the "I Like You" greeting from the You're Lovely Sale-a-bration set. 

The bottom edge of the tag is a skinny strip of Basic Black that I cut with the small scallop blade, rotary cutting attachment and my Stampin' Trimmer.  I punched a hole in one end and attached the tag with a bit of the Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffle Stretch Trim Ribbon.

St Patrick's Day Sale-a-bration - Banner Blast

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!  Stampin' Up! has numerous shades of green to choose from and I think Gumball Green is the perfect St. Patrick's Day green.  I had a hostess request I use this color at a recent workshop. This is one of the cards I came up with.  It didn't make it to her class but I do like it.

Perfect_pennants_life_gumballI started with the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper in the Occasions Catalog because one of the coordinating colors in this paper is Gumball Green.  I grabbed some of my In Color Core'dinations Card Stock in Gumball Green and ran it throught the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Folder (FREE Sale-a-bration choice).  did some gentle sanding with the Stampin' Sanding Block to make some of the dots pop. 

Added a set of stamped and punched banners with the Banner Blast stamp set and Banner Punch (FREE Sale-a-bration choices) across the top left corner and did a fun little trick with my greeting.  I stamped the greeting in Gumball Green, punched it out with the 1-3/4 Circle Punch and layered it on one of the Circle Framelits.  I then cut an Island Indigo  Starburst circle with the Starburst Framelits and cut out the middle with a Circle Framelit to create a ring.  Placed ring around my greeting to create some nifty visual interest.

Sale-a-bration Banner Blast Fun

This was one of my Monthly Card Buffet Cards last month and it was a big hit. The bright colors made us all long for Spring.  We used the Banner Blast stamp set and the Banner Punch, both of the items can be earned FREE during Sale-a-bration.

Banner_blast_brights

We stamped random banner images from the Banner Blast Sale-a-bration stamp set and punched them out with the Banner Punch.  We then placed them along the line created with the Melon Mambo 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.

We trimmed off about 1/2" from the right edge of the front of the card using the Stampin' Trimmer Rotary Attachment with the Small Scallop Blade.  Add a strip of Polka Dot Paper from the Perfect Polka Dot Designer Series Paper in Daffodil Delight to the inside of the cards so it would show when the card is closed.

Sale-a-bration - Petal Parade

This was one of the make & take projects for a workshop earlier this month. We made the envelope with the Envelope Punch Board and stamped images from the Petal Parade Sale-a-bration stamp set on it.

Petal_parade_3x3
The card is 3x6 folded in half.  We stamped the same images on the 1-1/2" x 3" strip of Whisper White and added the fun Strawberry Slush Ruffle Stretch Trim under it.  The strip of Sahara Sand on the bottom helps the ribbon pop.

The guests had their choice of greeting from the Just Sayin' stamp set and they could cut it out with the coordinating Framelit from Word Bubble Framelits Collection.

If you order the stamps with the framelits Stampin' Up! calls it a bundle and you will save 15%!

Sale-a-bration Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper

The Sale-a-bration Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper has twelve fun and different patterns. I had a hard time choosing which patterns to use on this card but I settled on these five.

  Just_sayin_sweet_sorbet
I punched various sized circles (1/2", 3/4", 1" and 1-3/8") from my chosen patterns and adhered them to my card, some flat and some with Stampin' Dimensionals.

See Ya Later Swing Card!

I posted THIS CARD recently and it used the Label Card Thinlits Die.  Today, I am sharing another Swing Card but this time, I am using the Circle Card Thinlints Die.

This is one of the cards my Be a Big Shot at Home class participants made in January.  Round 8 will begin in May, contact me if you are interseted in participating.

Cloudcard

I was inspired by a card I saw on my friend Patty Bennett's blog and thought it would be perfect with this die.

I ran my 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 piece of Bermuda Bay card stock through the Big Shot with the Circle Card Thinlits Die and then ran the left edge through again with the Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (you can find this folder on the Clearance Rack - Cloudy Day TEIF)

The Sale-a-bration Banner Punch was used for the suns rays (I punched four from Daffodil Delight card stock) and I attached them to the card in two phases.  I added the first four at 3, 6, 9 and 12 and then filled in the spaces with the other four.

Cloudcardbanneradhesive Cloudcardbanneradhesive1
The clouds were created with the bubble framelit in theWord Bubble Framelits and attached like shown below.  One on the front and one behind the swinging circle.

Cloudcardin

The greeting is from the Sale-a-bration set called See Ya Later and is one of the FREE items you can choose when you place a $50 order with me.  Email your order to me or place it Online at www.shoppingwithbarb.com

Sale-a-bration Sweet Sorbet Swing Card

I used a couple of the Sale-a-bration products on this project along with the Label Card Thinlits Die to create a swing card.  The Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper includes this adorable tiny flower print so I based my color combination off of it. 
The cute flower border on the bottom edge and the "I Like You" greeting come from the You're Lovely stamp set which is also a Sale-a-bration choice. 
See all the Sale-a-bration choices Download Sab-flyer

Petite_petals_sweet_sorbet_

I started with a half sheet of Soft Sky card stock (5-1/2 x 8-1/2) and slid one end into the die leaving the other end on top of the die to create a slight score line that will be the right side of the card. 

Thinlits_folded_flapI also die cut a label shape out of Whisper White as a layer for the flowers and my greeting.  The small label shape is included in the Label Card Thinlits Die set.

The super cute tiny flowers are from the Petite Petals Bundle which includes the stamp set and punch. I used the punch on Basic Black card stock and created some leaves to place behind the flowers.  The tiny black centers on the flowers are the small Basic Pearls Jewels colored with a Black Sharpie Marker.

Petite_petals_sweet_sorbet_close

I did attach a white layer inside the card so I had a place to share my thoughts.

See Ya Later Alligator Triangles

Alligators and Triangles on this card. :-)  Pulled out the Geometrical set and had the Sale-a-bration set called See Ya Later set in the vicinity so I put the two together.  My tag was a bit long so to "shorten" it, I added the arrow image from another Sale-a-bration set called Petal Parade.  See all the Sale-a-bration choices Download Sab-flyer

See_ya_later_triangles

Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzazz were paired together on this card.  I inked up the alligator image with Stampin' Write Markers and stamped it on the tag created with our NEW Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  My Whisper White Tag measures 1-3/4 x 4 and the Wild Wasabi Tag I layered it onto measures 2 x 4-1/4.

I ran the Pear Pizzazz layer through my Texture Boutique Machine with the Decorative Dots TEIF.  The various triangle images were stamped in Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi, punched out with the coordinating Triangle Punch and added to the card alternating colors.

I added a small bow with Wild Wasabi Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon to tie all the elements together.

Sweet Sorbet Perfect Pennants

This was one of my Stamp Club Cards in January. We used three products from the Sale-a-bration Brochure on this card in addition to the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Fringe Scissors and the Perfect Pennants stamp set.

Perfect_pennants_fringe

The background was created with the Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder and then we added a strip of paper from the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper Pack.  There are many fun patterns to choose from so any of them would be great on this card.  The little Baker's Twine Bow comes out of the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack.  This pack has three colors of Baker's Twine along with a sheet of die cut, self adhesive cork accents.

We divided the Sweet Sorbet paper and the Decorative Dots background with a strip of Basic Black cut with our hugelyf popular Fringe Scissors.

You can order any of these fun paper crafting supplies in my Online Store anytime day or night and if you order $50 and add this hostess code 7J2A9GYW , I will send you a FREE gift.
