New Sale-A-Bration Items Released Today

There’s one month left of Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration, and five new items were just released today, including the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper used in the card below.

What is Sale-A-Bration?

It’s Stampin’ Up’s biggest promotion of the year. It offers three great opportunities for those who love to rubber stamp and scrapbook.

Shop

For each $50 and $100 purchase (before tax and shipping) receive your choice of free, exclusive product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Look for new stamp sets, a punch, a die, Designer Series Paper, and more. Here’s a link to the new brochure. Earn them all. The promotion runs through March 31. If you see something you love, get it sooner rather than later. (A couple of items have sold out!)

Host

Invite your friends to a Stampin’ Up! party. When your sales reach $300, you earn a super cute free Little Ladybug stamp set. (Hint: You can also purchase the coordinating Ladybug Dies that complements this set!)

Join

If you have a large wish list, consider purchasing the Starter Kit. For $99, select $125 worth of product (your choice). It’s all shipped free. And, receive an additional stamp set from the Annual Catalog or the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog of any value as well as a mini paper cutter and 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Sampler.

Once you purchase the Starter Kit, you earn a 20 percent discount on all of your purchases. This is a great time to stock up on supplies and get your hands on brand-new products. This a great opportunity to be a part of my awesome team (Kim’s Paper Krafters) and be eligible to attend Stampin’ Up! events. Don’t worry, you don’t need to host parties or workshops or sell to others. Just enjoy your discount.

The Card

One of the new Sale-A-Bration items released today is the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper. Remember: It’s free with a purchase of $50 before tax and shipping. One package contains 12 sheets of rose gold and silver foil designs — perfect for adding color with Stampin’ Blends and/or sponging.

For this card (inspired by Kylie Bertucci), I tapped a sponge dauber onto the ink and added color to the this lovely paper. I used Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz. I added a sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, and the result is an easy and beautiful card.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’d love to help you earn free crafting supplies. Shop directly from my online store. Or contact me to help you place your order.

Happy Birthday to You!

Featuring the Sale-A-Bration set, Happy Birthday to You!, for Team Stamp It’s February Blog Hop.

Welcome to the Team Stamp It February Blog Hop where the stampers are sharing projects using Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration projects. We’re glad you joined us today. Be sure to visit all of the blogs on the hop and leave a comment to be entered to win the Looking Up all-inclusive card kit. Use the hashtag: #stampitcontest.

In case you haven’t heard, Sale-A-Bration is Stampin’ Up!’s most fun sale of the year. Make a minimum $50 purchase and receive your choice of free items, including exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper and more.

Today’s Card

My card showcases the Happy Birthday to You! stamp set. You can earn it free with a $50 purchase. In addition, I used the Birthday Dies (#153590/$27) from the Coordination Product Release.

It’s such a pretty card, and I’m pleased with the results. Here’s a list of other Stampin’ Up! products used to create this card:

  • Parisian Blooms Specialty Designer Series Paper (January-June 2020 Mini Catalog)
  • Stitched So Sweetly Dies (January-June 2020 Mini Catalog)
  • Subtle Embossing Folder (January-June 2020 Mini Catalog)
  • Petal Pink 1/4-inch Metallic-Edge Ribbon
  • Gold Embossing Powder and Heat Gun
  • Petal Pink, So Saffron, Soft Sea Foam, and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends
  • Petal Pink, Basic Black and Very Vanilla card stock

A Tip

The Petal Pink 1/4-inch Metallic-Edge Ribbon has been so popular, it’s currently on back order. But if you want to replicate this card, purchase Gold 3/8-inch Metallic-Edge Ribbon and use the Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends to color the ribbon. This technique works well to create coordinating ribbon in any Stampin’ Blend Color.

Another hint: Look for more Sale-A-Bration products to be released Tuesday, March 4. Love, love, love the Designer Series Papers and stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today. Remember, visit all of the blogs on the hop. There are a lot of fun projects for you.

Congratulations to last month’s winner: Lois Heiland.

So Sentimental Treat Bags

Sharing treat bags using Stampin’ Up!’s So Sentimental stamp set for class this week.

One of the reasons I love being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is sharing the love of creating with rubber stamps, ink, and paper with others. I hold classes here in Mesa, Arizona, as a way to share my love of rubber stamping, make new friends and connections, and build a community of crafters.

For each event I hold, I give participants a different treat or favor. These are some of my favorite things to make! The featured treat today is created using the 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags found on page 33 of the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. You receive 25 bags for just $7. I’ve included some chocolate bars in mine, but there are many items that would fit well in these decorated bags, such as small hand lotions, lipsticks and chapsticks, peanuts, and more.

Here are some of the other Stampin’ Up! ingredients I used for the So Sentimental Treat Bags:

  • Yummilicious stamp from the So Sentimental stamp set (page 20-January-June 2020 Mini Catalog)
  • Stitched So Sweetly Dies (page 20-January-June 2020 Mini Catalog)
  • Scallop Tag Topper Punch
  • Banner Triple Punch
  • Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper
  • Mint Macaron 1/8-inch Sheer Linen Ribbon
  • Stampin’ Write Markers

Fun Technique

You’ll notice the image has two different colors? How did I achieve that look? I colored directly onto the stamp using Stampin’ Write markers. It’s so easy, and it lets you have a multi-colored image.

I’ve included a shopping list below. Each graphic will take you directly to my online store.

Sale-A-Bration Continues

There’s still time to take advantage of Stampin’ Up!’s best promotion of the year. Choose free product with minimum purchases of $50. Look for a lot of fun items including exclusive stamp sets and Designer Series Paper.

And, good news! New Sale-A-Bration items become available Tuesday, March 3. Watch for a post that day where I’ll include a link to the new brochure. The new offerings include stamp sets, foil Designer Series Paper, and textured vellum.

Just a note: Some items have been so popular and are sold out. If you see something you really want, I encourage you to get it now before it’s gone.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’d love to help you with any crafting questions or projects!

Peaceful Moments for All Occasions

Stampin’ Up!’s Peaceful Moments stamp set is perfect for all occasions. This ten-piece set includes sentiments for everything from sympathy, to birthday, to thank you, to congratulations, and friendship.

I know we don’t like to make sympathy cards, but it’s an important card to have on hand, and more importantly, to send.

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments Sympathy

It’s a Mega Suite

When combined with Stampin’ Up!’s Painted Poppies stamp set, your creative choices increase. These two stamp sets and their coordinating dies are part of a mega suite of products that provide the ingredients to create a variety of beautiful cards and git packaging.

The Peaceful Moments stamp set pairs with the Poppy Moments Dies, and the Painted Poppies stamp set coordinates with the Painted Labels Dies. When you purchase the stamp set with its coordinating die, you receive a 10 percent discount on the bundle. They can be found on pages 24-27 in Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.

But the coordination doesn’t stop there. In fact, the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper steals the show. I think it’s the centerpiece of this suite (even though I didn’t use it on this card). The suite also features Whisper White Seam Binding, Peaceful Poppies Sequins, and the Peaceful Poppies elements.

About the Card

For this particular card (inspired by a host of others found online), I used a Basic Black card base and the Gray Granite sheet from the Neutrals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper pack. I stamped the poppy image and the sentiment with Black Memento Ink. I colored the poppy with the Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend and the leaves and stem with the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend.

Another of my favorite products (I seem to have a lot of them!) are the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. That’s what gives me the cool, scallop, stitched rectangle that you see in the picture above. I find myself reaching more and more for this fun die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card featuring Peaceful Moments, a great set for all occasions, and Painted Poppies. If you don’t need a sympathy card, the Peaceful Moments set provides a host of options.
