Let’s Sale-A-Brate with ABC!

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. I look forward to sharing all the new products, projects, tips, and techniques with you from A to Z.  I’m starting off with a bang (to make up for lost time) and sharing A, B, C with you today.

WOW! I think Stampin’ Up! hit it out of the park with these! I love die cut words and you can mix and match these to create so many different sentiments. I used both the stamp set and dies for my sentiment and love the versatility you can get with these.  I colored the flower with Stampin’ Blends. I love the striking combination of Bermuda Bay and Black together. This card has lots of layers! Here’s the measurements:

Card Base- Bermuda Bay 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4

Layer 1 – Whisper White 5 1/4 x 4

Layer 2 – Petal Passion DSP 5 1/8 x 3 7/8

Layer 3 – Bermuda Bay 2 3/4 x 4 1/2

Layer 4 – Whisper White (with stamped flower) 2 1/2 x 4 1/4

Layer 5 – Bermuda Bay 2 x 3 3/4

Layer 6 – Whisper White (with sentiment) 1 3/4 x 3 1/2

I stamped the flower a second time on a scrap piece of cardstock, colored it, cut it out, and layered it on the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Wink of Stella to the center of the flower and finished it off with some Rhinestones and a bow.

This stamp set and dies have been so popular and I can see why! It’s quick & easy to combine elements and create an “amazing” card!

Here’s a card I shared previously using the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies. (You can click on the image to see the original post.)

Amazing You SAB

These cards showcase 3 different techniques. I love the way they used the negative of the die on the first card! The card in the middle uses a repeated die in the same color as the background. The card on the right has a cool collage focal point. Give one of these techniques a try!

A Crafting Weekend

I had such a wonderful weekend! I was able to do 2 of my favorite things 2 days in a row…hang out with friends and craft.  I didn’t even have to cook! I went out to dinner on Saturday and my wonderful husband cooked dinner on Sunday while I was getting together with C3 (Creative Card Club).  Each month I meet with these talented ladies and we share ideas, techniques, and projects we’ve created and then we make each others projects.  I shared a variation of a card I posted previously with the triple bow.  I brought lots of ribbon so they could choose what they wanted to make a bow to match their card. We used 2 of the Sale-A-Bration items, Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper and the new Glimmer Paper, to make these cards. img_0261

You can click HERE to see the original post with directions how to make the card and bow. This is one of those “formula” cards you could use again and again with different sentiments and colors.  I like black & white with a pop of color!  Here’s a photo of the ladies with their finished cards.


I love how they used their leftover scraps of glimmer paper to add a strip to their envelope. Don’t these look so bright and springlike?

Colleen shared a card using a quilt design. Here’a a picture of her with her card.


I wish I had taken another group picture of everyone’s cards as they all looked different because we used different designer series paper.  When you start with a neutral base you can do so many color combinations!

Marissa had us heat embossing and water coloring with blender pens, ink, colored pencils and aqua painters.  Here’s her card. Perfect for any occasion!


I totally messed up as I don’t have a photo of Margie with her card! I’ll make sure to catch her next time!

Susan and I took a road trip on Saturday to beautiful Virginia!  We enjoyed some crafting and catching up with a fellow demonstrator, Sharon Cline, and learned to make a “bendy card”.  This 3D card is not a quick & easy style card to make.  I’m not sure if I’ll ever make another one but it was definitely a fun day!

You can visit my online store to order any of the supplies needed to create my project.  Click HERE to shop. Use the Hostess code when placing your online order to receive your monthly gift from me. This month I’m sending out my birthday favor bags with DSP, card kits, and more!
