Stampin’ Up! Get the Best Dressed Lady Bug Back on Her Feet, Year-End Closeout and Last Day for Free Shipping!

Happy Tuesday!  Happy End-of-Year Clearance!  This is the time of year to save on your favorite goodies!  And you can see which of your favorite goodies will be available to you in future catalogs, too!

My card for today, though – looks forward to the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration goodies!  In this year’s SAB (that’s demo-speak for Sale-A-Bration!) – there’s a special little stamp set going to be available to you.  It’s called Little Ladybug and it’s a set that you’ll get FREE with a $300 workshop or individual order during SAB!  That will be in ADDITION to the SAB goodies that you’ll earn based on your purchase amount.  How cool is that??

I combined this totes-adorbs FREE Host set with some pretty Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP (coming on 4 Jan in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini catalog) and a cute little sentiment from the Back On Your Feet set (in the Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the FabFriday sketch challenge this week!

And I played along with the Just Us Girls Wild Card Week challenge, too!

I started with a Daffodil Delight piece of paper from the new Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP – its the same size as the front of my Daffodil Delight card base.  I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up is a different piece of the paper – this one in a beautiful floral – that I matted on Petal Pink and then popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a strip of yet another design in the DSP, bannerized the end with my Paper Snips and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Little Ladybug, is stamped on the Daffodil Delight DSP in Lovely Lipstick.  Then I snipped a banner end in that and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large flower and one of the ladybugs in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the flower with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combo and the leaves with Light Old Olive and Light Mint Macaron Blends.  The ladybug uses my Lovely Lipstick and Smokey Slate Blends Combos and my Light Petal Pink (for her face).  I brushed some Clear Wink of Stella over her wings for a little shine.

Then I fussy cut the flower and ladybug!

I adhered the flower first – with a Stampin’ Dimensional and some Liquid Glue – then added Lady Bug over top with Liquid Glue.

A few Old Olive gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones – on the sentiment banner and around the flower – finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Lovely Lipstick on a Whisper White panel.  Underneath, I stamped the cute little line of ladybugs in Tuxedo Black and colored them with my Light Lovely Lipstick, Smoky Slate and Petal Pink Blends.  Then I popped on another Noble Peacock gem.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Daffodil Delight card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got Little Ladybug ladybugs all across the bottom…

…and more of the gorgeous Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila.  This Little Ladybug set is SERIOUSLY CUTE, yes?  And how HANDY that it will be FREE!  I am also so loving the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ DSP – gorgeous colors and patterns (floral and geometric!) – it’s going to be a winner and it’s part of a beautiful Suite of goodies!!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

In the ongoing effort to “feed the cat”  – her Dad and I take turns trying to entice her with wunnermus treats.

Finn finds it all disgusting.

And..endlessly fascinating!

It’s a hard thing for him – cuz those treats seem WONDERFUL AWESOME DELECTABLE AND THE BESTEST EVER.

She’s just dumb, Dad – give that to me!! I’LL eat it!

    Today’s card is beyond cute…..the paper really is gorgeous and leads to wondering if you will be doing a paper share for the new catalog?? Hope so……
