Sale-a-bration Finale

Stacy & I had our Sale-a-bration Finale class Monday night.  We tried something new - a card buffet.  All the cards used Sale-a-bration items.  Everyone got to pick which cards they wanted to create.  It was a fun night!  Here are the 8 cards they got to choose from:
Designer Tee stamp

Hey Chick stamps

Glimmer Paper - no longer available

So Very Much stamp + Inside the Lines Design Series Paper

Avant Garden + Delicate Details stamps

Carried Away Designer Series Paper + Any Occasion stamps

Make a Medallion stamps

Reverse Words stamp
I think we used everything but the Tasty Trucks stamps and the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack. There are so many free items to choose from, it was hard to use them all!   There's only 1 week left for Sale-a-bration!  Don't wait, as you can see, some things are selling out.   AND Stampin' Up announced more items just this week! 

Here are the additional products you can get free with a $50 purchase:

There's some great paper in this list!   Let me know right away if you want to take advantage of this once a year opportunity to earn free products.

Another part of Sale-a-bration is the extra goodies you get for joining my team.  The Starter Kit is always a great deal - you get $125 of product for $99 (shipping included).  But during Sale-a-bration this year you get to pick out 2 free stamp sets.  ANY stamp sets - even the $49 Letters for You set.  Another perk of joining Stampin' Up is you 20% off anything else you purchase.   Let me know if you would like to take advantage of this and join my team.  We get together once a month to stamp and have fun!

Reverse words

Just a quick post to show you a couple of cards I made this weekend with the new Reverse Words Sale-a-bration set. 
I used Rose Red and Pink Pirouette on this card. The background is the 
Watercolor Wash background stamp. The balloons are from the Balloon
Adventures set and punched out with the Balloon Bouquet punch. I also die
cut some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper with the Balloon Pop-up Thinlits.
And because I didn't want the other balloons to feel left out - I added Wink of Stella
to them. I used a mask to get the balloon strings to go 'behind' the hooray sentiment.

This is Peekaboo Peach and So Saffron. I used the Chase Your Dreams stamp
set - the cheers made me think of England. The scribbles are from the
Beautiful You stamp set. I added the fun Sale-a-bration ribbon in gold.

Just a couple of examples of what you can do with this new Sale-a-bration set.  Let me know if you would like to place an order and get your very own!

Make a Medallion

With the threat of severe thunderstorms in our area tonight, I decided it was a good idea to spend the evening crafting in my basement craft room.  I just received the Make a Medallion set yesterday.  It is one of the 3 new Sale-a-bration items available.  You'll notice some gorgeous glimmer paper on a couple of the cards.  This is also a new Sale-a-bration item. See the link on the right for more information on all 3 new items.

Here's what I created this evening.  All were copied from other talented stampers.
This medallion pairs Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry. 
The base is Smoky Slate. Love this combination and Sweet
Sugarplum is my favorite new In Color. Did you see the fabulous
glimmer paper? Love it!! This was copied from Judy May.

Some more In Colors - Mint Macaron & Emerald Envy.
I just love how the 2 medallion stamps fit together. Endless 
possibilities of colors! The medallions can easily be cut out
with the Layering Circles framelits. This one came from Karen Chin.

Another gorgeous color combination - Crumb Cake and
Bermuda Bay.  This card also has a fun fold. Half of the front is folded back
and only that folded half was embossed with the Lovely Lace folder. 
This came from Kay Kalthoff.

This is my favorite. The black & white paper is from the Pop of Pink 
Designer Series paper.  Sweet Sugarplum is the card base and there is a
small strip of the new glimmer paper. If you don't own the thinlits, you can
still make gorgeous cards. I got this card from Barb Stamps

Don't you just love this new stamp set?  It's only available for a few more weeks.  You can earn it absolutely free with a $50 order.  Contact me soon to get this fun set or the glimmer paper!

Stay tuned next week for some samples using the other new stamp set - Reverse Words.
