Sale-A-Bration Designer Tee

Designer Tee

There are 3 weeks until Sale-A-Bration ends. That also means that as Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end, items are available while supplies last. One of the items that already sold out is the Card Tin, but there are still some great items available. Today I want to share several of those items that I used for this card – Delicate Details, Designer Tee and the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon combo pack.

I decided to make t shirts with a message of encouragement. All these sentiments are from the Designer Tee set. They can be used on the t-shirt as I did, or simply stamp them right on the card. I used the Delicate Details set for the background and the silver metallic ribbon for my embellishment. I like this ribbon combo pack because it gives your card instant bling.

So what do you think of this color combination? I don’t remember if I’ve ever used a bold color combo like this one, but with the background and card base being neutral, I think it works. What do you think? Leave me a comment below telling me whether you would use this color combo or not.

That’s all for today . . . Thanks for stopping by . . . till next time . . . Brunie

Beautiful You Birthday

Beautiful You

How would you feel if you received a birthday card with the ‘Happy Birthday, Gorgeous’ sentiment? It probably would make you feel good, wouldn’t it? The sentiment and image is from the Beautiful You stamp set.

I embossed strips of Sweet Sugarplum card stock with the large polka dot embossing folder and then applied clear Wink of Stella. Of course, I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits – one of my favorite framelits. The image was stamped with Black ink and then colored with a blender pen.

If you don’t like to color, you can do some paper piecing. What is that? That means you stamp your image on Designer Series Paper or solid card stock and then cut it out. So for example, you would stamp the lady image on DSP and then cut out her dress and adhere it to the image. Whether you color or paper piece, it doesn’t matter as this is very stylish lady.

The Beautiful You stamp has become a favorite for many – how about you?

That’s all for today . . . Thanks for stopping by . . . till next time . . . Brunie

Fresh Fruit Birthday

Fresh Fruit

I like when you can build on top of another stamp like I did with this card. First I stamped the Hardwood image and then I stamped with the Fresh Fruit set to create this pretty birthday card. The sentiment is from the set Cool Treats. Unfortunately, I haven’t had time to create with this set yet. It sits on my desk calling me – actually screaming to be used, but other projects get the priority.

The pretty ribbon is a freebie from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. It comes in a pack of 2 – gold and silver – very pretty. The colors for this card makes me happy. This was a quick and easy card to make – those are the best kind, aren’t they?

The Fresh Fruit set is not just about fruit but has pretty flowers. The circle swirls are also from the set. Check out another card using Fresh Fruit.

So Very Much

Delicate Details & So Vey Much

Today’s card is a quick and easy card which does not require too many supplies. I combined two Sale-A-Bration stamps – So Very Much and Delicate Details to make this clean and simple card. The ‘Thank You’ is big enough that you don’t need anything else.

The card was cut at 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/8. This way you can see the doily image at the bottom. In order to have the doily image across the card, I stamped it twice. I used a couple of the In Color Enamel shapes to finish the card. Here it is closed . . .I put a small amount of temporary adhesive in the middle so you can see it closed.

Delicate Details & So Very Much

This is a great card when you need lots of thank you cards without taking up too much time.

Do you have the So Very Much or Delicate Details stamps? You can get either one by purchasing $50 of Stampin’ Up! products and then it’s yours FREE. Purchase $100 and you get both of them FREE.

There are 3 new items that were added to the Sale-A-Bration catalog last week. Click here to see them.

So In Love With Mediterranean Moments

Mediterranean Moments

I know Valentine’s Day is over, but I still have some cards I haven’t posted yet so I thought I would share another one with you. I used several stamps to create this card but the main focus was done with Mediterranean Moments and So In Love.

Mediterranean Moments

There are two techniques I used on this card – the first being that I made an opening of several layers with the Layering Square Framelits so that the main image can still be viewed in the inside when it is opened. I also used the masking technique on the table and chair image.

Mediterranean Moments 3

The original image has 3 chairs, but I only wanted 2 for a cozy, romantic meal so I covered one of the chairs with a post it note when I inked up the stamp. The outside border was done with one of the images from Timeless Textures to give it a vintage feel.

When I look at this card, it calls out to me and makes me want to go out to a warm and quiet place for 2 – my husband and me. Do you feel it, too?

I like the Mediterranean Moments set – it’s different from the other sets in the catalog. Make sure to check it out on page 29 of the Occasions Catalog.

Thanks for stopping by . . . till next time . . .hope you find a nice, quiet and romantic place of your own . . . Brunie

Baby Bear Valentine

Baby Bear Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope you’re doing something special with someone you love – whether it be your spouse, a child, a friend or someone who simply needs to be shown some love.

Today’s card is one that I made for my grandson who’s turning 2 at the end of this week. I love this Baby Bear set – it looks so realistic and you can stamp him any color you want. My grandson loves balloons so I thought I would make him a bear with a special heart shape balloon. Isn’t it cute?

Can you guess where I got the balloon string? I used one of the strings from the Balloon Adventures set and the balloon was die cut with the Love Notes Framelits. See yesterday’s post for another card with these framelits.

Lots of Love

Lots of Love, Sealed With Love

I don’t know what the weather’s been like where you live, but here in NJ we’ve experienced Spring, Fall and Winter all in one week. Although it hasn’t been a bad winter, I’m ready for some spring weather and no more colds. However, it’s great weather for staying home and creating cards for Valentine’s Day.

Today’s card features the host set Lots of Love and Sealed with Love. This set has some cute images and works great for Valentine’s or any day you want to show the love.

Here are the details to this card . . . Stamped the background with the hearts from the Sealed With Love set using Real Red ink. The lady bugs were colored with the blender pen and I adhered two heart enamel shapes. I also used some crystal effects (retired) on the lady bugs to give it some shine. The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder and the white cardstock was die cut with the Love Notes Framelits to get that cute dimensional look. This set of framelits is a must have for your Big Shot dies collection. It makes nice borders and 3D hearts.

High Tide

High Tide

I’m always drawn to lighthouse stamps because I love visiting lighthouses. When I saw the High Tide stamp set in the Occasions catalog I knew that eventually it was going to wind up in my stamp collection. Everything you see on this card was stamped with images from the set which also has 4 nice sentiments.

Isn’t High Tide a nice set for stamping your own peaceful beach scene?

Happy Stamper Custom Tee

Custom Tee, Tie-Dyed

This happy stamper Custom Tee was easy to make with the T-Shirt Builder Framelits. The background was easily done with the Tie Dyed stamp which you can also use on the t-shirt for a tie dyed look.

This sentiment caught my eye immediately. After all, who’s not happy when they’re stamping and creating? Did you know that the T-Shirt Builder Framelits coordinates with the FREE Designer Tee set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog? You can use the Designer Tee set with or without the framelits. Many options to make your own custom tee with these 2 sets. Another stamping sentiment in the Designer Tee that I like is  “When in doubt: STAMP”.

Here’s a video that shows you how to use both of these sets and the framelits.

Are you a happy stamper? Express it with a Custom Tee.

Painter’s Palette Valentine

Painter's Palette Valentine's

Can you believe January is almost over?! That means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so I thought I would share a card I made several months ago to celebrate the occasion.

I created this card with the Painter’s Palette stamp set – different than all the other cards that I’ve made with this set. Click here and here to see other cards with the Painter’s Palette set. I used to work in an office and right outside my office was a bulletin board. Regularly I would find that my push pins were not where I had placed them but instead were used to create different shapes – it drove me crazy, but that was my inspiration for this card. I used the push pins image to create a heart. I stamped the pins in two different colors and then cut each one (unfortunately, no die available for this set). The crumb cake cardstock and ink was made to look like the cork on the bulletin board.

This is a 4″ x 8″ card scored at 4″. You could use a business envelope or better yet you can make your own envelope with the Envelope Punch Board. Cut a 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper or solid cardstock at 9-5/8″ x 9-5/8″ with the score line at 3-3/8″ to make your envelope.

Wouldn’t this make a fun different kind of Valentine’s Day card?

Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder

Happy Celebrations & Helping Me Grow

Today’s card features the stamp set Helping Me Grow and the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder. I also used the Delicate Details Sale-A-Bration stamp set for the border. This new embossing folder is a little different from the others as it debosses the image versus raising the image.

Watch this video to see how it works in combination with the Happy Celebrations stamp set.

What do you think of the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder? Isn’t it great?

Hey Chick Sale-A-Bration

Hey Chick

Today’s card is using the FREE Hey Chick stamp from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. When I first saw this set, I knew it would be on my list to get. I think it’s so cute especially the one with the hair. Think of the sentiments you can use to create funny cards with this set.

To make this card, I combined a couple of stamp sets – I used the grunge from Happy Celebrations and the sentiment from Better Together and added some Washi Tape on the corners.

So what do you think? Does this card make you happy?

Sealed With Love Notes

Sealed With Love

These 3″ x 3″ cards were made with the Sealed with Love suite – Sealed with Love stamp set, Love Note Framelits, Sending Love Designer Series Paper and Sending Love embellishments.  These were one of the make and takes at a Stampin’ Up! event back in November before the Occasions catalog went live. Aren’t they cute?

My favorite product from this suite is the Love Note Framelits. I especially like the small envelope die and heart edge die.

The Occasions Catalog is filled with many more great new products that I’m sure you’ll want to get so make sure to check it out here. Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration is still going on – for every $50 you spend you get a FREE item! Yep, that’s right – FREE!

Sealed With Love Anniversary

So In Love

Remember me? Sorry about the lack of posts. It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been able to post anything due to helping out family members who need my assistance.

Here’s a card I recently made for my mom and dad who celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary earlier this month. The sentiment is from Best Birds, and the hearts and scroll from Sealed with Love – from the Occasions catalog. The beautiful intricate die cut was made with the So Detailed Thinlits – another new item in the Occasions catalog. I love the Stitched Shapes Framelits and I’m glad they’re back in stock. They were so popular that they sold out quickly. The edge of the stitched circle was embossed with gold embossing powder.

The Occasions Catalog is filled with many great new products that I’m sure you’ll want to get so make sure to check it out here. Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration is still going on – for every $50 you spend you get a FREE item! Yep, that’s right – FREE!

Tasty Trucks Sale-A-Bration

Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I posted. Somehow, time goes quickly,  – especially during the holidays. Hope you had a great Christmas.

The Holiday Catalog ended on January 3 and the Occasions Catalog started yesterday along with Sale-A-Bration!

Tasty Trucks

Today’s card features Tasty Trucks, one of the stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. It’s a food truck which you can convert into an ice cream, hot dog, taco, pancake truck stand and has almost as many sentiments as it does images. If you love to color, then you would like this set.

Tasty Trucks

As a demonstrator, we get to pre-order a month before a catalog goes live, but unfortunately, this year, with all the holiday festivities and making my own holiday creations, I didn’t get a chance to play until now. Stay tuned for more projects from the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.

If you haven’t yet seen the new catalogs click here.

Remember during Sale-A-Bration, for every $50 you spend, you can get a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and the Tasty Trucks may be the free item, if you want to add it to your stamp collection.

Everyday Jars Thankful Banner

Thankful Banner Everyday Jars

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you had a great day celebrating with friends and family. We had a nice time at my daughter’s home with 22 people. I did most of the cooking of main dishes and I must say, I am EXHAUSTED!! Thank goodness, I can stay home and relax while I put up my Christmas decorations – something I do every year the day after Thanksgiving. It’s work, it’s messy, but it’s fun to see all my festive items again.

In light of the holiday we just celebrated, I want to share with you today’s Thankful Banner which we made at one of my classes using the Everyday Jars. I made the jars my focal point and die cut letters from a retired Big Shot die that fit perfectly on the jars. The banner base was embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and the tags were stamped with the Timeless Textures background images. I used burlap ribbon and linen thread after all mason jars and burlap just goes together, right?

I am not a fan of Black Friday shopping at the stores and traffic wherever you go. That is not fun to me. I stay home put up my Christmas decorations, do a little shopping online and do a little crafting. What are you doing today? If you’re like me and don’t like shopping at the stores, then here’s a suggestion . . .shop at my online store for great deals happening now at the Online Extravaganza. We’re always looking for discounts so this is a good place to start without the crowds.

One of the things you want to remember is that there is a 24 hour special on November 21 and another one on November 28 with different products. In addition, throughout the November 21 – 28, you’ll be able to shop for other discounted items.

Here are some other details to know:

The Stitched Shapes Framelits that will be in the 2017-2018 annual catalog but on sale now has been a hit and all have been sold in 2 weeks! However, here’s what the Stampin’ Up! headquarters have to say . . ,“Because of the extreme demand, the Stitched Shapes Framelits (item 145372) will go into backorder very soon, and will be placed on non-orderable status on November 21, 2016, at 10:00 AM (MT).” When you place an order online, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when this product is back in stock.

Click here to see a card I made with these framelits. Although you can use the framelits for a lot of other images, the stamps on sale specifically coordinate with these framelits. My recommendation is if you want the framelits, order them before Monday even though they’re on backorder because on Monday you won’t be able to order them at all.

Wonder of Christmas and Onstage Swaps

Today’s cards are 2 Christmas swaps I received at Onstage Secaucus. The first card was made with the Wonder of Christmas. The second card made with Peaceful Pines was made by Judy Hyde.

Wonder of Christmas & Peaceful Pines

At last month’s class, we made  this card using the Wonder of Christmas.

Wonder of Christmas

Whether you decide to color the angel or not, it makes a nice Christmas card. Since I was going to use my aqua painter to color, I used the Shimmery White cardstock which is thicker than the other Whisper White cardstocks and holds more water. In addition, you get a nice shimmery look.

So what do you think of the Wonder of Christmas stamp set?

Thanks for stopping by . . . till next time . . . Brunie

Don’t forget the Stampin’ Up! promotion going on right now through November 30th – 25% discount on select stamps from the Holiday and Annual Catalogs and being able to purchase the Stitched Shapes Framelits before the 2017-2018 debuts.
