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!

Happy New Year!

Oh. My. Gosh. I know it gets busy leading up to, and over Christmas and New Year’s, but seriously, given how we’d planned something fairly “low-key”, I wasn’t expecting time to whiz by as it did. So here I am, almost the END of January, and I’m only now saying… Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I do so hope you had a wonderful time however you may have celebrated 😉

Now back to creating… it’s Monday which means… MOJO MONDAY! This week the ladies are trying something different over at the MOJO blog with the card shape – this week its tall and skinny like me, so NOT! This is it…

Mojo Monday Sketch 330This is my take on the card using some of the wonderful new products from the Spring Catalog, along with a couple from Sale-a-Bration which commences in just a few short hours!

Mojo Monday 330 - Thank You TallinnMy card size is 3.5″x5.5″ and is a flip top for a change. The base of my card is Naturals Ivory. Onto this I’ve used some beautiful Sweet Sorbet DSP and run a piece of Naturals Ivory through with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, both of which can be yours FREE with every $60 you spend through until March 31 courtesy of Sale-a-Bration 2014!

Mojo330 - On-Film Framelits Die - JIFThen as I’ve made this card as a thank you to the couple who moved into our house to look after the cats and kids whilst Hubby and I were away a couple of weeks ago, from the Spring Catalog I’ve used one of the dies from the On Film set in Early Espresso to aptly frame a photo I took whilst in Tallinn.

This is layered on top of a strip of Crumb Cake that I’ve stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge again in Early Espresso. The ribbon is the beautiful 1/2″ Seam Binding in Daffodil Delight to pick up the subtle yellow in the DSP.

Mojo330 - Essentials Wooden Elements - JIFAs an embellishment I’ve stamped directly onto one of the Essentials Wooden Elements from the Spring Catalog with Early Espresso Classic Ink, sponging the edges with both the Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar, adhering it with some Sticky Strip. Talking of sponging, I also sponged the edges of the DSP and embossed strip before adhering it to the base.
