Fast Friday with Sale-a-bration!

Seriously, I’m beginning to wonder how I EVER survived before Framelits Dies and Punches came into my life! This next card came together all on its own thanks to these two items and the Sweet Sorbet DSP from Sale-a-Bration. This DSP really does make card creating easy!

On a Pistachio Pudding Cardstock base I added some Sweet Sorbet DSP – both of which I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake Classic Ink. One-third up from the bottom I adhered two strips of Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8″ Ruffled Stretch Trim with a stamped sentiment from the You’re Lovely Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set in Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Ink onto Crisp Cantaloupe Cardstock which has the sentiment punched out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch. Two pearls finishing it off.

Petal Parade Sale-a-Bration!

Petal Parade is just one of the stamp sets you can earn this year during Sale-a-Bration with every $60 you spend with Stampin’ Up!

It has been pointed out to me how this set has no sentiments but please don’t let this deter you as the stamps themselves are fabulous. In fact, this is the set I chose to use as background stamps on a sheet of tissue paper when making a gift bag over the week-end. Note the tissue UNDER the gift bag prior to my wrapping the gift! PLUS did you notice the fringe of Watercolor Wonder DSP from the Spring Catalog created with the new FRINGE SCISSORS, cool huh?

Happy Day Gift Bag

For this next card I’ve used Pistachio Pudding Classic Ink and after stamping the first flower from the Petal Parade Stamp Set, stamped off the next two before adding a strip of color from the Sweet Sorbet DSP plus a tag with a sentiment from the Happy Watercolor Stamp Set from the current Spring Catalog that was also sponged in Pistachio Pudding.

Petal Parade - You Make me Happy

The next card had a base of the Sweet Sorbet DSP (from SALE-A-BRATION) with a tag using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch from the Spring Catalog. Onto this I stamped various stamps from the Petal Parade Stamp Set (from SALE-A-BRATION), adding a sentiment from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set on offer in the Spring Catalog as part of a Bundle Set if you want. As for the twine, that too is part of SALE-A-BRATION! I’ve also used a stamp from Petal Parade on the circle to create a unique background. So effective yet so easy!

Petal Parade - HelloAlso you’ll note in this Spring Catalog, there are a few items that have been carried over from the Holiday Catalog. One of these items I’m pleased to see is the Envelope Liners Framelits Dies. I did purchase them from the Holiday Catalog but never really used them but as you can see from the cards above, I’m making up for lost time. There are three dies in the set with the largest die creating the perfect liner for Stampin’ Up’s Medium Envelopes. How to make something already looking good, look fabulous!

Old World Gifts of Kindness

It hasn’t been my intention to continually use the Soho Subway DSP but it certainly has become that way though hasn’t it? On this card I have chosen yet another design of this range to punch out hexagons.

Old World Gifts of Kindness

At the top of the card I used some sticky strip to create a ruffle appearance with the beautiful Very Vanilla 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon (more has been ordered so if you forgot or missed out with the first allotment, email me today…), adding some Large Pearl Basic Jewels for some extra ompf!

Very Vanilla Seam Ribbon with Pearls

Then onto the sponged and arranged hexagons I’ve layered (surprise!) the Very Vanilla cardstock onto Early Espresso which I’ve then trimmed with Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim. This ribbon ties into the layers on the base card which is Natural Ivory then is layered with Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe with the Very Vanilla cardstock on top!

Crisp Cantaloupe Ribbon

The stamp of the teapot and flowers came from the Tea Party stamp set and was stamped in Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink. The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set (yes, another of my current favorites for sentiments…)!
