See Ya Later SAB

2014_03_30IMG_0893 Well today is the last day of another successful Stampin Up Sale-a-bration.  You have until midnight Mountain Time to place an order to receive the free SAB items.  I thought I would say goodbye to SAB with today’s card featuring mostly SAB items.  For the swampy effect, I used the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 to stamp the background of this card using monochromatic color-pool party ink on pool party cardstock.  I added a strip of sweet sorbet DSP #133521  (free SAB item) to create a “lily pad”  I then created the alligator using the Petite Pennants Builder #122362 punch for the head, the teeth were cut using the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die #120893 and the eyelids were punched using the Owl Builder #118074 punch.  For the body I used the Chalk Talk #129983 and stamped the See Ya Later #133533 (Free SAB Item) and then textured the head and body with the Decorative Dots #133520 (Free SAB item) to give it the alligator feel. 2014_03_30IMG_0894 I got really creative by wrapping the DSP around the back of the card and added his tail punched from  Petite Pennants Builder punch. I think this made for a cute surprise and a fond farewell for the  Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration.  See ya later!

Say good by to One Big Sale a Bration 2014

2014_03_31mdsSAB2014_PetalParade_BKing-001

Since tomorrow is the last day of the Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration I wanted to say a proper good bye to the One Big Sale-a- Bration 2014 Digital Kit. Today’s MDS post is a CASE from a card I saw on Pinterest using the Petal Parade Stamp set #133602. The Petaks Parade is a free stamp set from the Stampin Up  Sale-a-bration catalog but I wanted to do a digital version of this card and pay tribute to the free One Big Sale-a-Bration 2014 #134976 digital kit from the Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog.

The Stampin Up Sale – a bration is going on through midnight mountain time so hurry and stock up to get your free products from the special Sale0-a-bration catalog for every $50 spent in regular merchandise from the Stampin Up occasions catalog, the Stampin Up 2013-2014 annual catalog, digital downloads and clearance rack.

Smile Again

2014_03_29IMG_0871 I was inspired by yesterday’s card that Cammie made and today’s post is the version I came up with. I used a piece of  strip of  Kaleidoscope DSP #132995. The card features the Peachy Keen #133113 stampset and the On Film Framelits #132969 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. The Peachy Keen stampset and the Framelits are a bundled item (wood #135224 and clear #135225) when purchasing together.   I completed the card by adding random rhinestone bling.

Fancy Schmancy

2014_03_27IMG_0622 Today’s post is an out of the ordinary for me.  I am really not a gold fan but this card came out great and is all product from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  The card base is the gold foil sheets #132622 embossed with the Ampersand #132970 and then the Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape #133000.  I added a hand cut a banner and added the sentiment from the Happy Watercolor #133191 stampset and a gold bakers twine #132975 bow.

This card turned out great and would be  great for  golden anniversary.

Hooray for Today

For today’s card, I wanted to showcase the wonderful Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Pack #132996 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. The Fresh Prints DSP is a pack of 48 (4 each of 12 designs) of 4 1/2″ X 6 ” sheets of paper.  The designs are all Fresh and Fun and makes for a perfect card.  I used the triangle punch #133375 and the Geometrical stamp set #133161  and I finished the  card with bakers twine. The Geometrical stamp and triangle punch are available as a bundle (wood #134941 and clear #134942) and save 15% when purchased together.

Today’s MDS post is a CASE from a card I saw on Pinterest using the Petal Parade Stamp set #133602.
