VIDEO - Lining Up the Make A Medallion Stamps

One of the newly released items for Sale-a-bration is the Make a Medallion stamp set.  It is a set of two large medallions, a few sentiments and a few flourishes.

The two large medallions can be put together to create an even better medallion.  However, lining up the two stamps can be a bit tricky.

Here is a card I made with this stamp set.

Card base - 4-1/4 x 11
DSP strip - 1-1/4 x 5-1/2
DSP strip inside - 1/2 x 5-1/4
Glimmer strip - 1/4 x 5-1/2
Black layer - 2-15/16 square
White layer - 2-3/4 square
White layer inside - 4 x 5-1/4
Check out my video as I show you how I line them up.

Detailed Floral Thinlits - part of Year End Closeout

CloseoutYear End Closeout going on through January 3rd.  However, prices are available while supplies last so order early!!

Holiday Catalog Retiring List (some are on sale)
Sale items (from Annual Catalog and items that are retired)

The Detailed Floral Thinlits are part of the Year End Closeout and I have a fun card for you using them.

Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies


I started with a Pool Party card base and I placed the larger die near the bottom of the card and drew a light pencil line across the top of the die.  I removed the large die and added the edgelit just above my pencil line and ran it through the Big Shot.  Cut down the fold line until you reach the die cut line.


I then used the larger die with the edgelit on a piece of Basic Black and added it to the front of the card.


Add a panel of Whisper White to the inside of the card, stamp a greeting and add a tiny flower from the Bloomin Heart Thinlits and stamp the flower from the Bloomin' Love stamp set.  Finish the whole thing off with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

FREE package of Delicate White Doilies when you

Embellished Ornaments

There are a number of products retiring from the Holiday Catalog and some are even sold out.  You can see the updated list - Holiday Catalog Retiring List

Thankfully the Embellished Ornaments Bundle isn't on this list.  I used both the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and coordinating Delicate Ornament Thinlits for this card.


I know you are wondering how I did the gorgeous shading behind the die cut silver ornament and you won't believe how easy it is.

Embellished_ornaments_purple_spongeI stamped my Whisper White layer with the holly and berries stamp in Smoky Slate and my greeting in Elegant Eggplant.

For the ornament, I die cut one of the solid ornaments from a quarter sheet of Whisper White cardstock.  I placed the negative image over my stamped layer and used sponge daubers to add Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder to the ornament space.

Then I die cut a coordinating detailed ornament out of Silver Foil Sheets and added it over the sponged ornament.  Easy Peasy!!

I layered this onto Elegant Eggplant and then onto a Wisteria Wonder card base.

The berries were "colored" with our Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer!

Have you seem the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper, it is probably my favorite DSP in the Holiday Catalog.  This paper reminds me of Christmas as a kid and brings back so many fond memories.
Lots of the images can be cropped from the sheets and used alone as was done on this card.

Real Red 4 ¼” x 3 ¼”, scraps for punching
Chocolate Chip 8 ½” x 5 ½”, scraps for punching
Pool Party 4” x 3”
Very Vanilla 4” x 3” (inside of card), scraps for punching
Home For Christmas DSP Pool Party w/ Snow pattern: 3” x 1 ¼”, 1 ¼” Subtle Stripes Satin Ribbon Very Vanilla: 4”

Punch a 1 3/4” Scallop Circle Punch out of Chocolate Chip, add a 1 3/8 " circle punched from Real Red and use the 1 1/4" Circle Punch to crop a Rudolph from the Home for Christmas DSP.
Attach the Pool Party/Snow DSP piece to the Pool Party card stock, wrap the satin ribbon around the card and adhere on the back with strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Use the Washi Label Punch on a scrap of Real Red, stamp the greeting in Real Red on a Very Vanilla scrap, crop it with the Word Window Punch, layer together and add to main layer.  
Attach the Rudolph piece, TIP place one dimesional at the top of the scallop and one at the bottom of the scallop so it sticks to the paper and not just the ribbon

Garden in Bloom Bookmark Card

Loving this new set called Garden in Bloom. It is a two step stamp set so you don't have to wait for the right time of year to make your garden bloom. All you need is this stamp set, ink, and paper. This is a Two-Step Stampin' set, which gives you so many creative options--combine individual stamps to build the final image you want in the colors you want.


I stamped my images in various colors and then used Tuxedo Memento Black for the outline images.  I also did some doodling with my Project Life Journaling Pens to add the triple dot sets and the butterfly antennae.

The tag was cropped with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Pink Pirouette layer on the bottom is only adhered on three sides so the bookmark can be removed and used.

Thanks for stopping by, more Weekly Deals will be announced tomorrow but order early as these items are offered in limited quantities. Once the quantity for the discounted items has been reached, the items will be removed from Weekly Deals, but they will still be available at retail prices.

SAB - Best Day Ever Banners

Fun card I made for a recent swap. I wanted to spotlight the three coordinating products in the Sale-a-bration Catalog.  Each product can be earned FREE with a $50 order so have a party (or place an individual order for $150) and get all three plus FREE hostess $$!!

I love that the Best Day Ever stamp set is available in Photopolymer, Clear Mounted Rubber and Wood Mounted Rubber so you can order it your way!!! 

I also used the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper and I am thrilled with it as I love every pattern and had a hard time choosing which ones to use.  The coordinating Best Year Ever Accessory Pack offers fun and bright ribbons and buttons.  All together, these products are amazing!

I cut all four banners with our Banners Framelits and used the Best Day Ever Designer Series Paper for three of them.  It was definitely hard deciding which patterns to use.

The fourth banner is Whisper White and I inked the stamp with our Stampin' Write Markers to get the three color effect.  I also added some paper piercing under the words for some added interest.  I used the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Stampin' Pierce Mat and the Paper Piercing Tool.


Did you notice the fun string of pennants in the top left corner?  This fun die cut is included in the Balloon Framelits Collection and I thought it was the perfect accent for this card.  It also allowed me to use another pattern from this amazing paper collection.

I added some Coastal Cabana Ribbon and a small button in Calypso Coral both items are in the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack. 

These three Sale-a-bration products coordinate together so well, so you do need all three. :-)

Purchase your supplies in my Online Store and if your order is at least $50, you can choose a FREE Sale-a-bration item.

Card Kits on the Year-end Closeout Sale!

I love card kits and we have a few of them on the Clearance Rack Year-end Closeout.

HappyhelloI use kits when I need a quick card and I need it now!  Sometimes I will alter the original version like I did in this case.  I took the Happy Hello Kit (ONLY $2.39 to make 8 cards!) and I added a half sheet of Basic Gray card stock.

I cut the cards in half and then trimmed off the top blank area.  Mounted the chevron piece to the Basic Gray card base and added the rest of the embellishments included in the kit.
