Coloring Lovely Lattice

The past few weeks, I have been promoting that during Sale-a-Bration you have the opportunity to earn free product.  One of the many products you can earn is the Lovely Lattice stamp set.   This is a beautiful stamp set that you will have fun coloring.  There are so many techniques you can choose from when you put the images to the paper.  My personal favorite would be to color with the Stampin’ Blends or the Aqua Painter.  Take advantage of Sale-a-Bration and earn this set for free with a $50 purchase from my online store.   

There are so many other products in the Sale-a-Bration catalog you can choose from or earn in addition to this stamp set.

Valentine Card featuring Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet

Valentine’s Day is approaching so this elegant Valentine card featuring Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet makes a lovely card for giving to a special person.  I am loving the products in the Sale-a-Bration brochure and the Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets are no exception.  Remember, you can receive them for FREE with a $50 order.  Once I saw the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets, I knew including them in the card design was a necessity.   The Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds elegance to the Lovely Lipstick Foil.  And WOW – what a dramatic change!  You will see more projects from me using this embossing folder!  Elements from both the Forever Lovely and Meant to Be Bundles complete the card.  Details for creating the card are below the photo of the card.

Valentine's Day Card Featuring Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets, Forever Lovely And Meant to Be Stamp Sets

Card Directions:

  1. Start with Lovely Lipstick cardstock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.  Score at 4-1/4″ and fold on score line to create card.
  2. Cut a piece of Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.  Use Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) to add texture to the Lovely Lipstick Foil piece. 
  3. Use Lovely Lipstick Classic Stampin’ Pad to stamp the large flower from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set onto a 2″ x 2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Along the edge of this same cardstock, stamp two leaves from the stamp set using Soft Sea Foam Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Cut the flower and leaves using the coordinating dies from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies.
  4. On a scrap of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, cut one of the open leaf dies.   Cut the small flowers with the die from a scrap of Lovely Lipstick cardstock.
  5. Use the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to cut a valentine heart from a piece of 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ Whisper White cardstock.
  6. Stamp the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment inside the heart using Lovely Lipstick Classic Stampin’ Pad.  The sentiment is in the Meant to Be stamp set. 

Card Assembly:

  1. Attach the embossed Lovely Lipstick to the card base using snail adhesive.
  2. Refer to photo on layering placement of flowers and leaves. Attach the large flower with a mini-dimensional and use mini-glue dots for other flowers and leaves.  
  3. Center heart onto the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet and attach using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Embellish small flower centers using small Pearl Basic Jewels.
  5. Tie a small bow using Whisper White Baker’s Twine and adhere to heart above sentiment.

Even if you do not have the foil sheets, this card can easily be replicated using cardstock.  The must have item is the Lace Dynamic TIEF which will add the elegance.  Project Materials are listed at the bottom of this post.  You can order directly by clicking on the item in the list.

Bloom All Year

As with many of our catalogs, the Occasions catalog has it’s share of project kits from Stampin’ Up!.  The Made to Bloom Kit makes it possible for you to bloom all year long.  In the kit, you will also receive pre-printed elements which allows you to add beautiful color to your cards.  The kit also contains a stamp set, accents, stamp pad, stamp block, adhesive backed pearls, card bases and envelopes.  Once you complete all the cards, you can store them in the acetate box included or, give them away as a gift.  

I love being able to have a box of cards for any occasion.  Stampin’ Up! adds new project kits to every catalog each year.  When you are new to stamping or have limited time to craft, these kits are a life saver.  Being able to have all the products in one box saves time and helps you improve your crafting skills.

Selling Out Fast

We have some more products that are selling out fast at Stampin’ Up!.  They are so popular and Stampin’ Up! just did not expect the volume of orders they have received.  The Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove foil sheets and Precious Parcel card kit are going fast.  They are still available but I fear not for long.  These products are going so fast that they may not be available through the entire Sale-A-Bration period.

Card Featuring the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

A card featuring the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper was a design in the All About Butterflies class.  The paper is in the current Sale-A-Bration brochure and you can select it for FREE with a $50 purchase.  This is one of my favorite papers.  Best of all, several of the butterfly designs coordinate with the Butterfly Duet Punch, therefore, no fussy cutting.  Since the Designer Series Paper (DSP) is a double-sided design, options for color combinations is endless.

First, I want to share the inspiration card.  The 4″ x 4″ card was received from Patty Bennett.  The combination of papers adds to the beauty of the card.  You will notice that the only stamping is the sentiment.  Since the technique is primarily paper layering, it is a simple design.  Using her design layout, I made a standard 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card to use for one of the class projects.   

Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

Now for the class card:

Card Featuring Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

Notice how well the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper coordinates with the black and white design on the Botanical Butterfly DSP.  As you compare the designs, note the slight variations such as the different ribbon and no embossing on the vellum.  However, the layout design is the same.  Details for creating the class card are below.

Card Directions:

Cut cardstock and paper as follows:

  • Thick Whisper White cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
  • Botanical Butterfly DSP – Black & white butterfly print: 5-1/4″ x 4″; 1″ x 4″
  • Botanical Butterfly DSP – Select desired colored butterfly and punch or fussy cut one butterfly 
  • Daffodil Delight cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 3″
  • Gingham Gala DSP: 4″ x 2-3/4″
  • Vellum cardstock: 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
  • Whisper White:  2″ x 2-1/2″ for sentiment
  1. Score Thick Whisper White at 4-1/4″ and fold to create the card base.
  2. Using Snail Adhesive, attach the larger piece of Botanical Butterfly DSP to the card base.
  3. Adhere the Gingham Gala DSP to the Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Center and attach the 1″ x 4″ strip of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the Gingham Gala DSP layer. With the 2-1/4″ circle punch, cut the vellum cardstock.  Attach to circle the center of the yellow layer piece.
  4. Wrap Daffodil Delight Ribbon around the yellow layer piece and tie a side knot.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the card.  Notice the ribbon this card, it is from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack in the Sale-a-Bration brochure and is another FREE item with qualifying purchase.  Due to it’s popularity, it has sold out.  It is on reorder and will be available again in early March and only while supplies last.  
  5. Stamp the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  The sentiment chosen is from the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set in the Occasions Catalog.  After stamping, use the Pretty Label punch to cut the shape.  Position as shown on the card above and attach with adhesive.
  6. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the colored butterfly to the center of the card and atop the vellum.  Optional: Use a Black Stampin’ Write Marker to hand draw the butterfly antennae.  
  7. Complete embellishing the card using the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  
Reminder:  

Sale-A-Bration is for a limited time.  Be sure to place an order of $50 so you can select the paper before the promotion ends and ends on March 31, 2019.
