Wow--does it get any better? Answer: Yes! it does!

March 12th (Friday evening) we'll have a Zoom card class with 3 designs--using both sets of stamps and making 3 of each design! All you will need for the class are the stamps, inks and adhesive. I'll be supplying the card preps for you and the envelopes. All the die cutting, dry embossing (folders) and layers will be ready to go. I'll demo putting the card together and then you'll have time to work on your supplies, ask questions, get a repeat if needed, and chat with other participants.  

When can you purchase these stamps, dies and bundles? February 2 through June 30th--but you'll want to order them soon (Feb 2) if you want to use them in the class! On February 2nd click on the Shop Now button and you'll be in my store--order your supplies then.

Remember to use the current month's Host Code (available 2/2/21--check back right here) and you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I select) for each $50 in product that you order!

Sale-a-bration Touch of Ink - Hummingbird

Today we'll be creating with the Sale-a-bration Touch of Ink - Hummingbird! This beautiful 2-step stamp set is really quite easy to stamp with and....if you are not an avid coloring stamper, the solid images are a quick solution to add color to your outlined stamped images. 

155233

Touch of ink - hummingbird

The solid images roughly match the outlined ones and are not intended to be a precise match for coloring---so it's even easier to do quick stamping because there's no tedious matching of the two stamps. The effect is a more casual design rather than a formal one.

You can earn this beauty free..that's right, during Sale-a-bration you can earn this set when you purchase $100 in Stampin'Up! products...that is as long as supplies last. Since this set is quite coveted I would recommend obtaining it sooner rather than later.

As we mentioned this bundle is a Sale-a-bration item so when you purchase $100 in Stampin'Up! product you can get this super bundle for free. There are other freebies that you can recieve for $50 purchases--if you don't have a SAB brochure you can click here to download one Download 2021_SAB_US

Sale-a-bration Berry Blessings #2

Today we're creating again with Sale-a-bration Berry Blessings #2! I loved the beauty and ease of the card we created on Tuesday so I carried over the design for today's card.

Raspberry card

We used the  Holiday Rhinestones again for this card but this time we used he green (instead of blue on Tuesday's card) One of the benefits of the Holiday set of rhinestones is that there are a multitude of colors so you can always find a coordinating color.

With a slight switch in colors, this card can also be created with Blackberry Bliss cardstock and ink for the berry and have yet another great fun and easy card.

Stop back next week and I"ll be picking another SAB free item to create another fun project!

Sale-a-bration Berry Blessings #1

Today we're creating with the Sale-a-bration Berry Blessings #1!

The Berry Blessing bundle has a lovely stamp set with a pack of coordinating Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper! And, yes, this bundle  also coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry stamp set & coordinating punch in the Spring mini (officially called the Jan-June Mini)!

Here's today's card:

Blueberry card

If you love to color you can use your Stampin'Write Markers or your Blends (alcholol markers)--you can even use your Blender pens & ink pad. But...if you are in a rush (who isn't these days) or if you simply don't like to color, there is the two step stamp that will color it in instantly for you. 

I love the blues in this paper so I chose to do our first card with the blueberry stamps and leaves...the set also contains 3 very verses that cover a multitude of occasions.

One of the really fun points of the designer paper is that one side is all about berries & the other side has gorgeous coordinating colors but in more geometric patterns. This means you can mix and match the designs to create some pretty wonderful projects like the card above.

As we mentioned this bundle is a Sale-a-bration item so when you purchase $100 in Stampin'Up! product you can get this super bundle for free. There are other freebies that you can recieve for $50 purchases--if you don't have a SAB brochure you can click here to download one Download 2021_SAB_US
