Sale-a-bration 2016

Loving the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper!

Wildflower_fields_allHave you seen the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper in the Sale-a-bration Brochure?  It is Ah-mazing!!  The colors and patterns just make my heart go pitter patter.  I love it!!

I tend to be a hoarder of DSP but not this stuff, it was FREE and I can get more!!  I actually used an entire layer on this card plus a bit more.  It is similar to THIS CARD but I used a different pattern.

I am lovin' Old Olive paired with Blackberry Bliss, so rich and yummy and I was thrilled to find Old Olive Sequins in my stash of embellishments!!  The Brights Sequin Assortment includes round, heart and star shaped sequins in Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, and Real Red.

Perfect_pairings_wildflower_blackberryThe small Blackberry Bliss flowers on my card come from the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits.  There are two sizes and they add the perfect touch.

Perfect_pairings_wildflower_blackberry_close Did you notice the scallop trim peeking out from behind striped layer? 
I created this with the Rotary Addition for my Stampin' Trimmer.  Transform your Stampin' Trimmer into a rotary trimmer. Simply swap in this rotary track and flip your cutting mat. Now you can cut decorative edges as well as straight cuts just by changing the blades.
I used the Small Scallop Blade for this card.  You can see the Tiny Wave Blade in action on my T-SHIRT CARD.

My greeting is from another Sale-a-bration item, this stamp set is called Perfect Pairings.  I cropped the greeting with the Extra Large Oval Punch.

Bold Botanical Builders!

I have been playing around with my Botanical Builder Framelits and the coordinating Botanical Blooms stamp set and here is one of the cards I made.

I wanted a bold color combination as I wanted to use Basic Black.  Went to the Designer Series Paper section in my Annual Catalog and found exactly what I was looking for.  The colors in the Pretty Petals DSP stack were perfect for my project.

I started with a 4-1/4 x 11 sheet of Basic Black cardstock, placed it open on my Precision Base Plate and ran it through with the curved leaf edgelit included in the die set.  This curved die is so cool!!!  I then cut a quarter sheet of Mint Macaron and added it to the inside front layer of the card to really make it pop.

Botanical_blooms_pacificMy greeting comes from the Perfect Pairings Sale-a-bration set.  You can earn this set FREE when you order the Botanical Blooms Bundle (or any other combination of products that total at least $50)

You can see all the available Sale-a-bration sets HERE.

The leaves were cut from Old Olive and a couple of them were stamped with the coordinating image in Old Olive ink.  I then gathered quarter sheets of my other colors, Mint Macaron, Pacific Point and Calypso Coral.  I die cut each of the flowers from each color so I would have a bunch to play with.  I just randomly started layering the different shapes and colors and came up with this combination and I love it!! 

Botanical_blooms_pacific_close1

Botanical_blooms_pacific_sequinsAfter I glued all the flowers down, the card was just missing something and I immediately thought of adding some sequins.  
Sequins are so inexpensive and they really do add to any project.
I was thrilled when I checked my stash of sequins (I have them all plus the extras from  my Paper Pumpkin kits) and found that the Brights Sequins contain Pacific Point!!  They added just the right amount of bling. :-)

I used these same colors and made a similar card and I will post that one tomorrow for you.

Barb's Reminders: 


Sneak Peak Week - Occasions and Sale-a-bration!! 7

Today is the last day of my Week of Sneak Peeks  from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs so I thought I would save the best for last.  I couldn't wait to play with this new die from the Occasions Catalog and I know you will love it!  This card is also one that my Be a Big Shot at Home Class will get to make in March.

It's called the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and you can use it to make a fun pop-up on the inside of your card or trim the pop-up shapes to use as fun elements on the front of your card.  The Thinlines coordinates with the Party with Cake Stamp Set.  The two are sold as a Bundle as well as individually.

The die is super easy to use and I highly recommend using the Precision Base Plate with this one. 

I paired it with the Honeycomb Happiness and Perfect Pairings Sale-a-bration stamp sets to create this fun card for my niece. I stamped the balloon image twice, once on the Whisper White layer and again on a scrap of DSP from the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack and cut it out.  I colored the bow with a Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker.

Honeycomb_happiness_popout

I added another pattern from the It's My Party DSP Stack to the left edge and wrapped both colors of the new Baker's Twine Combo Pack around it. 

Open the card and you have this fun element that pops out at you.  I added some confetti and another greeting to the inside.

Honeycomb_happiness_popout_inHere's a top view of the pop-up.

Sale-a-bration starts in two weeks!

Our biggest sale of the year, SALE-A-BRATION starts in two short weeks so I have been busy preparing my swaps and this is one of them.

I used two Sale-a-bration products on this card, the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper and the Perfect Pairings stamp set.  The Wildflower Fields DSP is full of amazing floral patterns but I love, love, love this mosaic pattern, it is too much fun!!! Perfect_pariings_tshirt
Perfect_pariings_tshirt_closeThe Calypso Coral strip peeking out from behind the patterned paper is done with the Rotary Addition on my Stampin Trimmer.  I used the Tiny Wave Blade for a fun zigzag effect.

 

I used the Baby's First Framelits to crop the baby onesie and snipped off the bottom to create a t-shirt.  The Little Numbers Thinlits are perfect for adding the age.  You will be able to earn the stamp set and DSP FREE with your orders during Sale-a-bration.
