2019 Sale-A-Bration Catalog

Stampin’ Up! All Adorned Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all – how goes your weekend?  Ours has been a little soggy.

Not West Coast soggy, for sure.  But definitely…moldy…had a bit of sun yesterday afternoon and it was warm-ish, but…overall…not so wunnerful.

So we ran some errands and then watched movies! And then went to dinner with our friends.  Not a half bad way to spend a Saturday! 🙂

Tonight, we’ll play, yes?  I’ll be live at 8pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’ll make a fun little card using a new Sale-A-Bration stamp set called All Adorned.  Take a sneaky peek:

I hope you can join me!  I think you’ll like it!

So – tonight.  Right here.  8pm Eastern!

Just a picture today.

No witty commentary.

I don’t really think it needs any.

Pizza plate.  A little blue cheese dressing.

Everybody loves pizza.

Unless it has anchovies.

Which is just wrong.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Call Me Cupcake Birthday Card

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy first-day-of-a-maybe?-three-day-weekend!  Whoo-hoo!!

I’ve mentioned that, coming on 1 March, we’re going to see the Sale-A-Bration Coordination promotion!  This is a great opportunity for you to pick up some framelits that coordinate with some of your favorite Sale-A-Bration stamp sets.  Like…the set I used today – Hello Cupcake – to make a sweet birthday card for my little friend who’s turning 5 next week!  I also added a few other little goodies, like the Country Floral Dynamic TIEF and some Detailed Birthday Edgelits.  Take a look-see:

You already know the Hello Cupcake set – take a peek at the coordinating Call Me Cupcake Framelits (that will be available on 1 March!)

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started by embossing a piece of Whisper White card stock in the new Country Floral Dynamic TIEF – which you can get right now (FREE!) with a $50 purchase (before shipping and tax).  I matted it on Petal Pink for the card front.

Then I started making some pastries!  I stamped the cupcake holder in Melon Mambo on Whisper White and the frosting (also in Melon Mambo) on Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  I even cut a little piece of “cupcake” in So Saffron with the handy die!  Stampin’ Up! thought of everything! 🙂

I figured a cake stand and dome would be fun – so I cut the stand die in Petal Pink and the dome die from Vellum card stock.  I adhered these to the card front with Liquid Glue.  I even cut the little dome topper in Petal Pink!

I figured a little heart pick and some heart sprinkles would be good, so I stamped the pick in Melon Mambo on Petal Pink and cut it out – plus a bunch of little hearts – all with dies from the Call Me Cupcake Framelits!

I used Liquid Glue to assemble the cupcake, added the little hearts and pick and then popped the whole thing onto the dome with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From my card last weekend, I had a cupcake all cut out from Sparkle Glimmer Paper – it’s cut with the Detailed Birthday Edgelits die.  So I used some Liquid Glue to adhere that to a piece of So Saffron paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and fussy cut it.  I pulled the die back out to cut a Petal Pink heart and stuck it in place with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the cupcake to the card front with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I grabbed a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays set and stamped it in Melon Mambo on Whisper White, then fussy cut each word and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  And the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Itty Bitty Birthdays sentiment in Melon Mambo to a Whisper White panel.  Around it I stamped some flowers from Hello Cupcake in Petal Pink and So Saffron.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my So Saffron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Hello Cupcake flowers on the front…

…and then I added some more of the Subtles DSP in So Saffron on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Hello Cupcake stamp set makes for a delicious card, don’t you think?? The coordinating Call Me Cupcake Framelits are a lot of fun – and really speed up the creative process!  If you’re fussy-cutting-adverse…then these are DEFINITELY for you!  And – there are sets for several other stamp sets, too!  Just wait till they arrive on 1 March!  Hope you like!  And hope young Scarlett-Melody likes it, too! 🙂

It’s the time of year when the Jonquils are starting to bloom!

We have a bunch.

Of Jonquil stems and leaves.

Most of them pop up and look great guns and then….nada.  No flowers.  Just…leaves.

But – last night I spied a few over-achievers!

Finn took a moment to stop and smell the Jonquils!

Apparently they smelled pretty tasty…

SMELL!  Smell, Finn – not TASTE!!

Sheesh.

As you know, I’m a pretty strict dog-mom.

No spoiling of the dog will be tolerated.

Case in point…Check out this totally un-spoiled dog.

Even he knows he’s not spoiled.

I asked him!

Paw licking is dog-speak for “not spoiled”…everybody knows it!

But – he couldn’t keep it  up.

He knows he’s the exception to the mom-rule.

Stampin’ Up! Country Floral Artfully Aware for a Friend

MikemikemikemikeMIKE!

Yep – it’s HAAWWWMMMP Day!!

A friend of mine and her daughter are having a bit of a week, so I sent them each a card to let them know I’m thinking of them.  This one uses the new Artfully Aware stamp set and the gorgeoumous new Country Floral Dynamic TIEF (which you’ll be able to get for FREE with a $50 purchase as part of the Sale-A-Bration second release starting on 15 Feb!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the FUSION challenge this week!

I used the great Wood Textures DSP so that fits nicely with the Just Us Girls Trend Challenge!

Finally, I also played along with the theme challenge over at Inspire. Create!

I started with a piece of Wood Textures DSP and I ran it thru the Big Shot in the new Country Floral Dynamic TIEF (coming 15 Feb).  Once I had it embossed, I trimmed it down to my card front size and matted it on Balmy Blue.

I used my Light Stampin’ Blends in Balmy Blue, Petal Pink, Mint Macaron and the Dark Daffodil Delight to color all the embossed leaves and flowers.

I stamped the Artfully Aware image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Very Vanilla and colored it with more Blends – this time in Light and Dark Mossy Meadow and Balmy Blue, plus Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede and Ivory for  hair and arms!

I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To create the frame, I cut a 2 5/8″ x 4″ Rectangle Stitched Framelits from more Wood Textures DSP.  Then I cut a 1 3/4″ x 3 1/8″ Rectangle Stitched Die from the center.  I popped the frame over the art work with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Artfully Aware sentiment in Balmy Blue on Very Vanilla and cut it with the pretty label die from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits.  I used some Liquid Glue on the ends and a Dimensional in the middle and stuck it onto the card front.

The Lovely Flowers Edgelits gave me a bouquet of little Balmy Blue and Petal Pink flowers.  I used a sponge wedge to lightly flick the same color ink on the petals and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  They all got a So Saffron Share What You Love Artisan Pearl in the middle.

I tied a bow from Mint Macaron Nature’s Twine, adhered it to the end of the sentiment with a Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Artfully Aware sentiment in Balmy Blue to a Very Vanilla panel.  I inked the leaf from the new Painted Seasons stamp set (another FREE goody in the Sale-A-Bration Second Release!) in Mint Macaron and stamped it off three times and then stamped it over the sentiment using my Stamparatus.  It was a little too light – so I stamped it again (thank you, Stamparatus!) without re-inking!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Painted Seasons leaves in Mint Macaron on the front…

 

…and I added more Wood Textures DSP on the envelope flap – and stamped THAT with the Painted Seasons leaf in Mint Macaron!

Et Voila!  This was a perfect image and sentiment for the purpose this week – and I think it will be a good one for many reasons and many people!  And…how about that Country Floral Dynamic TIEF?!?  Are you kidding me?  That folder is absolutely stunning!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Grand, Bitty, Bloomin’ Birthday for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Birthdays!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I pulled out a few goodies for this one – including the big Life Is Grand set for the sentiment.  I also used the Bloom By Bloom Bundle and a fun little sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays.  Take a look-see:

I pulled the layout from the Paper Craft Crew sketch – you’ll see I turned it on its side!

I started by matting a piece of Whisper White on Call Me Clover card stock for the card front.

On the middle panel, also Whisper White, I first stamped the Itty Bitty Birthdays sentiment in Pineapple Punch ink several times on the right side of the panel.  Then I adhered a strip of Happiness Blooms DSP to the left side with Liquid Glue and matted it on Call Me Clover.  Then I adhered the whole thing to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

I doubled up a length of Calypso Coral 3/8″ Satin Ribbon and adhered it with a couple of Glue Dots.  Then I wrapped a piece of Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine around the top and tied a simple bow.

For the sentiment, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Life Is Grand sentiment in Call Me Clover on Whisper White, then I cut it out with a Rectangle Stitched Framelits die.  I popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With the punches in the Bitty Bloom Punch Pack, I made some Whisper White and Lovely Lipstick flowers that I adhered together with Liquid Glue.  Then I curled them slightly and stuck them to the card front.  I gave each one a Grapefruit Grove Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from the Life Is Grand set in Call Me Clover.  I added some Lovely Lipstick flowers from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set.  Each flower got another Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Call Me Clover mat and into my Blueberry Bushel card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some Bloom By Bloom flowers in Lovely Lipstick across the front.  I used my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker to give them each a center…

…then I added some Happiness Blooms DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Gotta love the bold Life Is Grand sentiments, huh?  They surely make a statement.  And I like how Itty Bitty Birthday adds a little extra sumpin’ sumpin’ in the background, too!  Hope you like!

Just a note: the Bloom By Bloom bundle is a lot of fun – and if you don’t already have the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack – now would be a great time to get them on order.  You’ll see they’re backordered for a minute – but…at least you’ll get your name in the queue before they run out forever!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Sue’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Shirley’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Painted Seasons Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope you’re having a great weekend so far – and have (maybe!) joined our fun Facebook Event!  If not – there’s still time to get in!

My card today further showcases the versatility of the soon-to-be-available Painted Seasons bundle (coming on 15 Feb – this will be available for FREE with a $100 purchase as a Sale-A-Bration goody!).  This time, I paired it up with the Strong & Beautiful Stamp set from the Occasions catalog as well as the SAB Part of My Story stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one if from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a Whisper White panel and, using my Stamparatus, stamped the pretty succulent flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist.  I stamped it a bunch of times.

Next, I added the little dots image all around in Petal Pink.

I also used my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to add little touches of pink to the tip of each succulent petal.  Then I matted the panel on Petal Pink with Liquid Glue.

The ribbon accent was made by tying a large-ish bow from the Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon and adhering it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the sentiment from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set in Versamark on a piece of Vellum card stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool. Then I cut it out with a Rectangle Stitched Framelit.  I also cut a Petal Pink rectangle with the same die.  With Glue Dots under the embossed areas, I adhered the sentiment to its mat – and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut some Wonderful Floral Framelits leaves from Lemon Lime Twist card stock.  Then I colored some Butterfly Elements (from the Sale-A-Bration flyer – free with a $50 purchase) with my Call Me Clover and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut leaves and wooden elements to the card front – tucking some under the sentiment.

Then I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Lemon Lime Twist and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers to directly color a sentiment stamp from the Part of My Story stamp set (FREE at the $50 level during Sale-A-Bration) and stamped it on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Lemon Lime Twist card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Painted Seasons succulent on the front…and before I send it it’s going to get more Petal Pink “dots”, too.  Sheesh, Mare…

…and some pretty paper from the Painted Seasons DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am already totally in love with this image-only Painted Seasons stamp set – love being able to use the gorgeous flowers with one or more of the awesome sentiments we have available to us!  And the Strong & Beautiful and Part of My Story stamp sets sure have a lot of those – perfect for so many occasions!  I hope you like – and are looking forward to being able to pick this bundle for yourself when you place a qualifying $100 purchase.  15 Feb is right around the corner! 🙂

P.S.  Hope to see y’all at 11am Eastern on our event page!  I’ll be talking about the Starter Kit – and how awesome it is during Sale-A-Bration!

The last couple of days have given me some of my favorite weather.

Foggy mornings.

I love the fog – I suspect it stems from growing up in the SOCAL coastal region.  It has very strong – and good! – memories for me.

Also – when it’s foggy, I can pretend that just the other side of the trees is the Pacific ocean.  And that I can hear the waves.

It’s really just the distant sound of the freeway, but…hey.  A girl can dream!

The other thing I love about this misty weather is….the deer emerging…

Did you see her?

You can’t see them unless they move!

Finn – seldom sees them at all.

Stampin’ Up! More Than Words Painted Seasons Sneak Peek

Happy Friday!  Whoo-hoo!  Glad we made it together – and looking forward to (hopefully!) seeing a bunch of you on our Facebook party starting tonight!!  We’ve got a bunch of fun games going on already and you can leave a comment and start getting entered to win some Prize Patrol goodies!

My card today brings you two sneak peeks!  First off is the new Sale-A-Bration Painted Seasons Bundle – with a wonderful image-only stamp set and coordinating Painted Seasons DSP.  These are both available to customers on 15 Feb.  For the sentiment, I went to one of the Sale-A-Bration Coordination goodies (coming on 1 March to customers).  Take a look-see:

The layout is from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge.

And the color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a panel of new Painted Seasons DSP and cut it into three equal width strips – then I adhered the strips onto a Melon Mango mat with Liquid Glue for the card front.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the More Than Words (available 1 March) sentiment in Poppy Parade on a same-design piece of Painted Seasons DSP and cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I matted it on a Mango Melody Scalloped Circle and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I inked up the “birthday” in Melon Mambo and then used a Sponge Dauber to add some Grapefruit Grove along the bottom of the stamp, then stamped it on a strip of Whisper White.  I snipped banner ends with my Paper Snips and edged it with my Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I popped it over the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My Stamparatus went to work again to create the flower and leaves.  I inked the flower by applying the inks with Sponge Daubers – Poppy Parade around the outer edges and Mango Melody in the middle.  Then I blurred the colors with some Grapefruit Grove in between those two colors.  Using the Stamparatus meant I could stamp the image multiple times until I got it “just right”!

I inked and stamped the ferns the same way – using Crushed Curry and Mango Melody.  Then I stamped some Crushed Curry leaves.  I cut everything with the matching dies in the Four Seasons Framelits.

Don’t be confused, okay?  The Painted Seasons bundle is the stamp set and DSP.  And it’s a second-release Sale-A-Bration goody available on 15 Feb.  The Four Seasons Framelits are a SAB Coordination item, available 1 March.  Got it?? 🙂  Check it all out below!

I also pulled out my Wonderful Floral Framelits and cut a few Poppy Parade leaves with my favorite little die!

I adhered all the leaves in an artistic fashion with Liquid Glue.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the flower and used them to wind Gold Metallic Thread loops.  Then I popped it over the leaves.

I used my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker to add some “center” detail to the middle of the flower and brushed the middle with Clear Wink of Stella.  Then I added a small Gold Faceted Gem and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added some Crushed Curry leaves and Grapefruit Grove little…sparkles?…up the side of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and into a Poppy Parade card base and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Painted Seasons leaves and sparkles on the front…

…and then I added more Painted Seasons DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How.  Freakin’. Gorgeous is this new Painted Seasons stamp set!?!  That flower!  And wait until you see the pine cone and the succulent!  The DSP that coordinates is absolutely wonderful and oh-so-pretty!  Makes my heart happy!  And the new More Than Words stamp set has such wonderful sentiments!  You’re going to want them both.  All!  EVERYTHING!  Hope you like!

TTFN

True watch face on Thursday.  Pretty warm!  Actually pretty awesome!  All the windows and doors open to air out the winter musty’s!

And this is how Finn enjoys a warm-as-Spring day in February!

Stampin’ Up! How Sweet It Is Cupcakes for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

The color challenge this week shoved me right smack out of my comfort zone!  No Mossy Meadows.  No Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze or Crushed Curry.  Nope.  Quite the opposite.  The colors are bright and candy-sweet.  So…I used the Sweetest Thing stamp set and Hello Cupcake from the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  Take a look-see:

And – the colors (just in case you didn’t figure them out….)

Not colors you’re used to seeing from me, huh?  😉

I started with a striped piece of Coastal Cabana paper from the How Sweet It Is DSP and matted it on Melon Mambo card stock for the card front.

Next up, I matted a second piece of the DSP on Melon Mambo and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the big die in the new Doily Builder Thinlits to cut an ice-cream-shop-worthy doily from a piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a separate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment label outline image from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Coastal Cabana.  Inside it, I added the sentiment in Melon Mambo.

I cut the sentiment with the matching die in the bundled Jar Of Sweets Framelits – and, while I was at the Big Shot, also cut a Melon Mambo label to use as my mat.

I adhered the sentiment to the Melon Mambo label with Liquid Glue – having it just peek out the top.  Then I popped the matted sentiment onto the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana lollipop on Whisper White and cut them with their die.  Then I colored the Melon Mambo sucker with my Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered them to the sentiment with Liquid Glue.

To finish off the card front, I tied a bow from Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped Melon Mambo wrapped candies and Coastal Cabana lollipops from Sweetest Thing across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  Then I added the perfect sentiment from the Hello Cupcake (SAB) stamp set in Melon Mambo.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Melon Mambo mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the candies across the front…

…and then I added some more of the How Sweet It Is DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Not my colors – but I do like how this one turned out!  The Sweetest Thing set is so cute and I love that the Jar of Sweets Framelits let you cut out the little candies!  Hello Cupcake is…FREE!  Oh – and coming on 1 March…will have matching dies!  Finally, let’s not forget that gorgeous Doily Builder doily in the Sparkle Glimmer Paper!  Makes me think of the Ghiradelli ice cream shop at Disney!  Yum!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Jaimie’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!
