Sale-a-bration 2015

Tuesday - Last Day to Sale-a-brate!!

Tuesday, March 31st is the last day to Sale-a-brate.  Please get your orders in today or early tomorrow as it will be crazy Tuesday night. 

My card today uses a couple of products from the Sale-a-bration Brochure.  The Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Simply Wonderful stamp set.

IY_simply_wonderful

Add a few drops of Lost Lagoon Ink to a Stampin' Spritzer filled with 70% rubbing alcohol. Cut a piece of the Irresistibly Yours Paper to 3-1/2 x 5 and spritz it with Lost Lagoon ink mixture, let it dry and wipe off the excess ink with a paper towel.  Attach this to the front of one of the Note Cards.

Punch a 2x3 piece of Whisper White with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and add the two greetings as shown.  Use the Hello Honey Stampin' Write Marker to ink the swirly image on the congrats stamp and stamp it above the greetings, repeat and stamp below the greetings.

Punch three small flowers out of Whisper white and add a rhinestone to the center of each one, add to the tag.  Tie the twine into a bow through the hole in the tag, attach the tag to the front of the card.

Nature's Perfection and Sheer Perfection Vellum

My card today uses the Nature's Perfection stamp set and the coordinating Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum. I stamped the flower image in Rose Red ink onto Watercolor Paper and used my Blender pen to pull the ink from the edges to the centers of the petals

Natures_perfection_glitter
I cut the Vellum sheet and added it near the left edge of my layer.  It may be a bit hard to see in the photo of the full card but I applied a bit of Dazzling Details Glitter Adhesive to some of the petals.

SAB - Big Day and the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit

Had a chance to play with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and made some super cute treat bags with it.

Treat_bag_best_day_ever_club

Added a main image with the Big Day Sale-a-bration stamp set layered on a Starburst die cut.  The Bow Builder Punch adds more fun at the top of the greeting.  Use a Metallic Clothespin to clip on a strand of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim and these treat bags go together lickety split.

SAB - Big Day and Some Polka Dots

Had some fun with the Big Day Sale-a-bration stamp set.  This set has five stamps, the three greetings I used on my card and a birthday cake and candle. 

You can earn this set FREE with a $50 order placed with me. 

Big_day_polka_dots

I cut a 2" strip of Whisper White card stock, punched the top with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch, stamped the three images, one after the other and trimmed the bottom. I colored the images with the 2013-2015 In Color Stampin' Write Markers. 

I punched 1" and 3/4" circles from the four colors, Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Whisper White.  I placed them on a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Crumb Cake, making sure to place some on the edges and trimming off the excess.

I threaded the three colors of Thick Baker's Twine through the hole in the tag to create the fun tassel.

Petal Potpourri - Fun Color Combination

2015_spring_16What a great color combination!!  My inspiration for this color combination came from the Sweet Sadie Designer Washi Tape.  Love the soft colors of the Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe paired with some bold Basic Black.

Had some fun with the Petal Potpourri stamp set and the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch.  These two products are offered individually or in a Bundle.  I always recommend bundles as they are discounted 15%.

Order your Petal Potpourri Bundle in my store at www.shoppingwithbarb.com

Here is a card I created with the Bundle and my fun color combination.

Petal_potpourri_cantaloupe
A  Project Life 4" x 3" Grid Card is my focal layer.  I added a Spiral Border Punch along the top of the card and then adhered my stamped and punched flowers.  A few strips of the Sweet Sadie Designer Washi Tape adds a fun detail to the black panel.

Tied a bow with the Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker's Twine and you can get it for 25% off this week as it is part of our Weekly Deals.

Simply_wonderfulThe greeting is from the Sale-a-bration set called Simply Wonderful that you can earn FREE with a $50 order.  I love this set as it has commonly used greetings in various fonts.

 

 

 

 

Here is a close up of the card and you can see the grid lines.  The lines add a bit more character to the card.  I also used the Flower Medallion Punch on a scrap of Pistachio Pudding card stock and added some leaves under the flower.

West Coast Ports Update:

The ILWU and PMA reached a tentative agreement on Friday, February 20. The contract still needs to be ratified, but it is expected to be ratified without issue.  The west coast ports have now returned to normal operations, with night shifts restarting.

In the meantime, Stampin' Up! has decided they need to "turn-off" the ordering codes of some back ordered items. 

Currently, the following items are on BACKORDER;  
(backordered items will be available on or before the date indicated)

SAB - Lotus Blossom - Free File for you

Here is a set of three cards that use the Lotus Blossom stamp set. The Lotus Blossom stamp set can be earned FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration.

**Scroll down for a FREE Downloadable file with eight additional samples using the Lotus Blossom stamp set.

Lotus_blossom_three
This gorgeous stamp set makes anyone feel like an artist in three quick steps. It creates a beautiful flower that looks painted, but it is amazingly easy. The individual stamps have a tab at the top to help you align them, and the tabs are numbered so you will know which part of the flower to stamp first, second, and third. Try playing around using one ink pad with the stamping off technique, or multiple different ink pads to create many different looks.

All three cards use the same colors for the flower :
Step 1 - Full strength Strawberry Slush
Step2 - Strawberry Slush stamped off once
Step 3 - Full strength Pink Pirouette

and the stem:
Step 1 - Full strength Wild Wasabi
Step 2 - Wild Wasabi stamped off once

Lotus_blossom_club_frame
I added a Rose Red frame with the On Film Framelits and punched the greeting out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.

Lotus_blossom_club_window

Used the 2" Circle Punch to make a peek-a-boo window in this card.

Lotus_blossom_club

Two flowers and a wider strip of the Designer Series Paper on this card.
