Sale-a-bration is the most fun time of the year! Why? FREE PRODUCT!!  My card today was made using the Lots of Lavender stamp set, one of the free sets you can pick out with a $50 order.  In fact, you can pick something different with every $50 you spend (before shipping/tax).  

I made my first Stampin’ Up! purchase nine years ago during Sale-a-bration!  I placed my order online and was shocked at all the free goodies I received. My order was over $150 so I received 3 Saleabration items plus the Hostess Rewards.  I fell in love with the products (especially the color coordination) and purchased the starter kit the very next month.  My only intention was to get a discount on all my future purchases.  That was it! But then I started gathering my friends together to stamp because I wanted to share with them the fun I was having. Then I started several clubs and one thing led to another.  BUT, I could have just been my only customer if that’s what I wanted.

When I bought the Starter Kit, Stampin’ Up! chose what was in it.  Today, you can pick what YOU want! The kit is $99 but you pick $125 worth of product PLUS during Sale-a-bration, you can choose 2 extra stamp sets!  If you love the product and know you’ll be purchasing in the future, why not get the Starter Kit? There’s no pressure to sell, unless you want to.  If you purchase the Starter Kit during Sale-a-bration, you’ll have until then end of June to reach the quarterly minimum of $300 plus you’ll receive 20% off of all your own purchases.  Sounds fun, doesn’t it?  If you’d like to join, click here or please, feel free to email me with any questions you might have!

Back to my project! I created this card as part of a challenge from my team leader, Dawn, using the sketch below. I changed it up a little bit but the sketch gave me something to start with!

Calypso Coral:  11″ x 4-1/4″  scored at 5-1/2″       3/4″ x 2-1/4″ for banner

Gold Foil Sheet:  3/4″ x 4-1/4″        3-1/4″ x 2-1/2″      scrap for scalloped circle     3/4″ x 2-1/4″ for banner

Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper:  4″ x 4-1/4″

Whisper White:  3″ x 2-1/4″      scrap for sentiment     3/4″ x 2-1/4″ for banner

  • I colored my flowers with Stampin’ Blends and used Memento Ink.  I also used Memento Ink for the sentiment.
  • I wanted to give you an exact measurement for the banners but they can be shorter than 2-1/4″.  The white one on my card is 2-1/4″ but the others could definitely be shorter.  It all depends on how you want them to look on your card.
  • I used two Stampin’ Dimensionals on the right side only of the gold scalloped circle.  The gold foil that the flowers are adhered to also have Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back, so the left side will already be raised.

All of the products I used are listed below.  For easy shopping, just click on any of the pictures and you’ll be taken to my Stampin’ Up! online store.  Use the host code and receive a package in the mail from me with 3 card kits:  BCDR6NRJ 

Have a great weekend!
