The Countdown is On!

 Sale-a-bration is the most anticipated time of the Stampin’ Up! year and it’s almost over.  There are 21 more days to go BUT, all of the Sale-a-bration gifts are while supplies last! Unfortunately the Card Tin has already sold out but there are still many more gifts available for every $50 in product that you order (before shipping/tax).  If you’ve had your eye on some of the great gifts, please place your online order as soon as possible.  I don’t want you to be disappointed!

I placed an order earlier this week and it arrived yesterday.  My free gift was the Glimmer Paper.  Oh my, but it is GORGEOUS!  If you like glitter and sparkle, you will love it!  If you are reading this from my blog, click on the two Sale-a-bration catalogs on the right side of my blog to look inside.  If you’re reading this is an email, click here and here

My card today uses the Sale-a-bration gift, Avant Garden and the sentiment comes from the set All Things Thanks.  I actually stamped the flower and stem weeks ago and it’s been sitting on my craft table because I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with it.  Because Sale-a-bration is almost over, I was spurred into action to create and I’m happy with the simplicity of it. 

As I mentioned above, I used All Things Thanks for my sentiment.  I used the middle sentiment that says “thanks for joining us.”  I just wanted the word thanks for my card so I used my Rose Red Stampin’ Write marker and just colored the part I wanted.  You do have to be careful that you don’t touch any of the other letters while doing this but it’s a great way to get more mileage out of a stamp set.

All of the products I used to create my card can be found below.  Click on any of the pictures and you’ll be taken to my Stampin’ Up! online store.  Once there, it’s easy to add an item to your cart.  If your total reaches $50, you’ll be prompted to enter your Sale-a-bration free gift item number.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!  Use the Host Code UAWUUQG4 and you’ll receive an extra surprise with your thank you card!

Have a wonderful weekend! I’ll be back on Monday!

Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden

The other day I had a chance to play around with the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Avant Garden and this is the card I created!  The flowers were stamped using Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point ink.  It’s kind of a funny story, but when I was making my card, I really wasn’t sure what those little green things were that I placed around the flowers.  The other day I saw another stamper’s card and she used them as stamens! Oh, yeah, that makes sense!  Hope they look ok the way I placed them!

I stamped my sentiment, which also comes from this set onto Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  It is adhered to the next bigger size circle in this set using Bermuda Bay and has dimensionals on the back to give a bit of dimension to the card!

This stamp set is free with a $50 before shipping and tax until March 31, 2017.  Place your $50 order online and this set can be yours!  Click here to see all of the Sale-A-Bration choices!
