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.

Stampin Up Birthday Wishes For You Stamp Set - For inspiration and ordering visit www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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!

Blossoming Basket for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #36

Stampin Up Blossoming Basket Bundle All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Today’s card features the new Blossoming Basket Bundle which is FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order! This is such a versatile set as it can be used for just about any occasion…birthday, sympathy, get well, thank you…or just a card to give someone with a bouquet (or basket) of flowers to let them know you’re thinking of them.

I stamped the basket on Whisper White with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I used Stampin’ Blends (Stampin’ Up!’s premier alcohol markers) to color. Oh what fun it is to color with these markers!  It is so easy and it amazes me every time! It makes me feel like an artist the way they add depth and shading. I realize these markers are a bit of an investment but trust me, it will be money well spent!  You don’t need to start out with all of them.  Get Old Olive and one or two of your favorite colors along with the Color Lifter to start.  I do recommend buying the combo packs so you have the light and dark shades of each color. If you want to see more projects I’ve shared using the Stampin’ Blends Click HERE or HERE.

I wanted to be able to use this card for any occasion so I only inked up part of the sentiment (for you).  That leaves me free to use any sentiment on the inside depending on occasion.  I often make cards and leave the inside blank until I know who the recipient will be.  I can’t wait to get my Stamparatus this week!  I will be stamping a bunch of these baskets to color.  Research has shown how therapeutic coloring can be (which is probably why adult coloring has become the rage).   It is definitely my therapy of choice! (Not that I don’t appreciate the progress I have made due to my Physical Therapists but, coloring is pain free!)

The other feature of this bundle is the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. WOW!  Not only is that a mouthful but it really is dynamic! It adds so much texture to a project! This is a thick embossing folder so you only use one clear plate instead of two when making your “sandwich” for the Big Shot. I embossed the front of my Crumb Cake card base. Here’s a close up so you can really see the texture!

Check out this short video from Stampin’ Up! showcasing this bundle.

I knew I had to have this stamp set and embossing folder the minute I saw it! I love baskets and have a collection in my craft room where I store many of my Stampin’ Up supplies to keep them organized and handy.

This card would have been great for my alphabet series…B is for Blossoming Basket Bundle and Blends; however, I made it using elements from this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge! I went right down the middle with butterfly, green, twine.  It really is fun choosing elements from the board to create!  I hope you will give it a try and play along!  You can click on the board to see what the rest of the design team created and to share your project.
