Sale-A-Bration Second Release – Glimmer Step Card

New release from Stampin’ Up! of additional Sale-A-Bration items and one of the hot items will be the 6″ x 6″ Glimmer paper stack!   There are 12 sheets of 6″ x 6″ glimmer paper, 4 each of Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum.  They are absolutely beautiful!

Today’s card features the Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper in a centre step card.  The focal image is from the Window Box framelits cut from Heavy Whisper White card stock and adhered over the glimmer paper.  Punch out some flowers using the Petite Petals punch and add them to the front of the card.   A pearl in the centre of the flowers provides a nice finish to the card.  The white twine is optional.  Very simple but gorgeous with the glimmer paper.

The second release items are available now to March 31 – or while supplies last!

Suite Sayings Meets Suite Sentiments

Two stamp sets with “sweet” sayings were used for today’s card.   I had started out using the more colorful side of the Fruit Stand DSP but couldn’t get the colors to work as it seemed too “busy” for me.  And on the reverse side of the piece I was using was this more muted piece that I absolultely love!

The card is a modified Dutch Door cut on a Watermelon Wonder card base.  The top panel is a piece of Flirty Flamingo stamped with the floral image from So In Love using Watermelon Wonder classic ink.

The lower panel is a piece of the DSP.  The sentiment in front is from Suite Sayings.

The sentiment inside is from Suite Sentiments.

Just a quick post today!   Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Happy Valentine’s Day – Sneak Peek

LoveHappy Valentine’s Day!

My Valentine’s card uses one of the soon to be released Sale-A-Bration items available starting February 21.


Glimmer Paper! 12 sheets of 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper in Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum – I love them and this Bermuda Bay glimmer paper is absolutely gorgeous!

I used the “line” thinlit from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to cut out the portion at the top of the Whisper White. Added some of the glimmer paper behind it and attached it back into the card. The hearts were made with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the sentiment is from Love Sparkles.

There will be two other stamp sets in the second release of Sale-A-Bration being offered and I’m sure you will love them.

Sale-A-bration ends on March 31 and while it seems a way off, trust me, time flies and if you don’t want to be disappointed in choosing your Sale-A-Bration items, be sure to place your qualifying orders ($60 exclusive of tax and shipping) to ensure that you’ll get the items you want.

So In Love

I used the So In Love stamp set and emboss resist technique for this card.  I like using this technique with outline images as it brings a “wow” factor to any card you make with it.

The card base is Whisper White with a layer of Sweet Sugarplum cut 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″.  The Whisper White panel is cut 5″ x 3 3/4″ and embossed with the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions embossing folder.  Adhere to the Sweet Sugarplum panel and then add a strip of the Sweet Sugar plum 3/8″ Ruched ribbon around the lower portion of the panel and attach to the card base.  Cut another piece of ribbon and tie around the ribbon to form a knot.


The Whisper White focal panel is cut 4 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ and matted onto a piece of Sweet Sugarplum cut 4 3/8″ x 2 3/8″. Use the embossing buddy on the Whisper White panel before embossing as it will remove any static where you do not want the embossing powder to land.
Stamp the images with Versamark and then sprinkle on some White embossing powder and heat emboss with the heat tool.

Use a sponge dauber and apply the Sweet Sugarplum ink, starting in the centre of the flower to have the most color intensity and slowly move out from the centre.  Sponge more ink on the whole panel to complete the focal panel.   Use a piece of paper towel to remove any excess ink on the embossed portions of the flowers and the embossing pops even more.

Adhere the focal panel onto the card with dimensionals to pop it up.

Supplies:

  • Stamp set:  So in Love
  • Paper:  Whisper White, Sweet Sugarplum
  • Ink:  Versamark
  • Accessories:  Falling Petals Textured Embossing Folder, Embossing Buddy, White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, 3/8″ Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon, Dimensionals

Butterfly Shaker Card

Who doesn’t like butterflies?  Especially a butterfly shaker card?

The base card stock is Blushing Bride with the Fluttering embossed Very Vanilla for the first layer.  If you don’t have the Falling In Love DSP from the Occasions Catalogue, it really is a must have with all the beautiful subtle colors in the package.  The strip across the centre, layered over a piece of Blushing Bride card stock,  is one of the patterns and another pattern is used inside the shaker portion.

I used the Layering Squares Framelits to create the frame for the shaker portion and the sequins are from the Fancy Frost Sequins.

SUPPLIES:

  • Paper:  Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Falling In Love DSP, Acetate Sheets
  • Accessories:  Fluttering Embossing Folder, Bold Butterfly Framelits, Butterflies Thinlits, Embossing Buddy, Fancy Frost Sequins, Foam Adhesive Strips.
