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.
Another great product in the Sale-a-Bration catalog is the Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets. They are shimmery foil sheets that look amazing under light. Use them beneath your sentiment, as a background or just as a small accent. No matter how you use them, you won’t be disappointed. When you get your hands on them you will agree that they are amazing. These sheets are available for free in the Sale-a-Bration catalog with a $50 purchase.
The sheets can be used as accents on cards and boxes. A good example is the Pillow Boxes in the video.
With all the products included in the Paper Pumpkin box each month, you can create alternate pumpkin cards. I like to experiment with the products and see what else I can come up with. There is nothing wrong with thinking outside the box, so see what you can come up with too. You will have so much fun doing it.
Here are a few I put together. It’s an adorable stamp set and creates the perfect cards for children to take to school.
If you are not a subscriber of Paper Pumpkin, you can sign up here. It’s always a nice surprise when that box arrives. I take it into my craft room and put my creativity to work. I wish Paper Pumpkin was around when I first started crafting. It’s a great way to help bring your creativity to life.
With Sale-a-Bration in full swing, you can really take advantage of some of the wonderful free products in the catalog this year. Take a look below to see how some of the Sale-a-Bration products tie into to the Occasions catalog. The coordination is wonderful when you are creating projects. It’s even better with butterflies all around the Occasions Catalog. One particular area is the Gingham Gala Suite that consists of the Butterfly Gala bundle. Let’s take a look at these products and see how they all coordinate.
Butterflies are so beautiful so I am very excited about all these products that coordinate together. Sale-a-Bration is all about earning those free products and expanding your craft supplies. Butterflies are all around this year in the form of the Butterfly Gala bundle. Enjoy all it has to offer and earn some of it for free.
This month’s card class is “All About Butterflies” and this vibrant butterfly card featuring the Butterfly Gala Bundle is one of the cards being featured. Combining the color palette of Blueberry Bushel and Lemon Lime Twist creates a cheerful and vibrant card. The sentiment is from the Love What You Do stamp set in the All Occasions Catalog.
The card base uses Blueberry Bushel cardstock topped with a layer of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. The black polka dot DSP (3-3/4″ x 3-1/4″) is the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure – it’s free with a $50 order (before tax & shipping). The Lemon Lime Twist gingham plaid (3-3/4″ x 1-3/4″) is from the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper 6″ x 6″ pack. Abut the two pieces of DSP and cover the seam with the Lemon Lime Twist Mini Ruffled Ribbon.
The sponge technique was used to color the butterflies.
First, stamp the butterflies on Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. For the large butterfly, working from the center outward, use a sponge dauber to apply the ink to the center area of the butterfly with Lemon Lime Twist Classic Stampin’ Ink. Follow by sponging a small strip on each wing using Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Ink. Finish by stamping the outer wing edges with Blueberry Bushel Classic Stampin’ Ink.
For the small butterflies, sponge with the Lemon Lime Twist and Granny Apple green only. Be sure to stamp the butterfly bodies using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Use the Dual Butterfly punch to cut the butterflies. Stamp the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut using the 2-1/4″ circle punch. Layer on a Blueberry Bushel cardstock circle cut with a 2-1/2″ layering circle framelit. Attach butterflies and sentiment as shown in the photo. Embellish the butterflies with basic rhinestone jewels and add a couple of the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
It can always be frustrating when your stamp does not stick to the block surface. It’s been a long time coming, but Stampin’ Up!’s new Cling Stamps are here! You can find these great stamps in the new Occasions Catalog.
It will be so much easier to use these Cling Stamps. I know you will be impressed with them as well. I’ve had the opportunity to try them and it’s such a pleasure to use them. Just wait til you try them. I published the video Stampin’ Up! last month announcing the release of these stamps, now you can see their newest video to show you how they are mounted. Take a look below.
Stampin’ Up!’s classic red rubber stamps are now better than ever! They are the same quality rubber material that you’ve always loved. Now they come with an adhesive image label that will cling like crazy to clear blocks (AC p. 206) or Stamparatus plates (AC p. 207) each and every time you use them. So, from now on, our stamps will either be “cling”, or “Photopolymer.”
