W is for Wishes for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #40

Stampin Up Birthday Wishes For you card idea using Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. It’s Thursday so that means it’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I used elements from this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge to create my card. I love how fun and easy it is make a card or project when you pick 3 in a row and create!  You should give it a try! It’s such a fun challenge! I made a diagonal this week using twine, metallic, and rhinestones. Here’s this week’s challenge board.


Oh how I love the Birthday Wishes for You Stamp Set! It is featured on page 3 in the Occasions catalog…right as you open up the book.

I knew immediately this would become a well used stamp set in my craft room.  I make a lot of birthday cards and love how this stamp set makes it quick & easy to create.  I also love that I can color it with my Stampin’ Blends and make it color coordinate with whatever Designer Series Paper I use.  This set is priced so reasonable at just $12 (clear mount). I stamped it using my Stamparatus and made multiples ready to color and assemble as needed.

If you didn’t get in on the preorder for the Stamparatus, you will be able to order it in June when the new Annual Catalog debuts.  Trust me, you are going to want this and you’ll thank me that I told you to put it on the top of your wish list!! I love that if you don’t get a perfectly clear image the first time you can just reink and stamp again right on top because it gives perfect alignment each and every time! It is also great for 2, 3, or 4- step stamping and saves time and money with fewer mistakes.

Today is my sister’s birthday! Our birthdays are just 2 days apart and we love to celebrate together when we can.  (Living over 400 miles apart doesn’t make that an easy task!) We talk on the phone every day! She loves the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper so I knew that I wanted to use it for her birthday card. We both love the silver foil and handpainted designs! I cut a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece to cover the front of my Whisper White card base.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece of 2 1/2 x  4 1/4 Whisper White and layered on a piece of 2 7/8 x 4 1/4 Old Olive.  I wrapped some Silver Baker’s Twine around the layered piece, tied a bow, and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A few rhinestones added to the center of the flowers and some matching DSP on the envelope and my card was complete.

Stampin Up! announced that due to low inventory Stampin’ Blends will be made unorderable beginning Friday, March 23, noon (MT).  If you started your collection and want to add colors you need to do it today. The Blends will be available again but not until the end of May/beginning of June.  I love coloring with my Blends!  It is so much fun and easy to get the look and feel of an artist!

  1. Good Morning Jeanie! I love this card and I have all the makings for it too! I hope to make a few of these today to keep on hand. I’ve been pretty productive but also under pressure . . . as soon as I make a card, I must send it out immediately. This will hopefully go into my stock.
    I ordered my Stamparatus yesterday and can’t wait to get it. I am not a colorer, so I only own 4 Blends, in blues and yellows.
    The snow finally came overnight. Today would have been the day for no schools, but they are on a two-hour delay. WOW a neighbor is clearing off his car and the snow is wet, wet, wet and very heavy looking. My friend is supposed to come today to make cards, instead of playing Scrabble. I’m glad I’m not leaving the house again.
    Counting down the days to On Stage!

  2. Happy birthday to your sister! Love the card and the colors. So fresh and fun. The snow just ended here….on to another stamping day. Nancy, be safe with your snow. Enjoy.

  3. Happy Birthday to Cindy!! This is a beautiful card, Jeanie. I’ve had my eye on that stamp since I first saw it. It really makes your card pop on top of the pretty foil paper. It’s been one of those papers I’ve been “saving”. We returned home from Iceland on Tuesday night to this storm. We laughed about having more snow here than there!! Have a good day!

  4. Wonderful, wonderful as Lawrence Welk would say. Also, wonderful birthday wishes to your sister and you in the next 2 days. The card is in the mail, honest not as whimsical as yours but I hope you like it. OK I gotta have this stamp…I have been sitting on the ol’ fence trying to decide but I think it will be a great stamp to have in my collection. Yes, that will be a great one to use with the Stamparatus to stamp away and color whenever. Love your blingy additions to the flowers too. Great job of convincing me to hop off the fence and get this stamp set. I will be CASEing this card too once I get that stamp. Better yet, I use up that DSP too! Safe travels for everyone out east and west with the rain and mudslides etc.

  5. Oh what a pretty card ! I also love this dsp !
    We are SNOWLESS here in Charlotte/Matthews ….thank goodness !
    Happy Birthday Jeanie`s sister ! Enjoy your day and your beautiful card !!
