Happy Hello Bag o lope

2013_02_21IMG_0962The bag o lope was one of the first projects I created at the first Stampin Up party I attended over 12 years ago. The bag o lope is created using a sealed envelope and scoring the sides .  My project today uses the envelope from the Happy Hello Simply Sent Kit #130149.   I embelliished with the flower stickers and added the Basic Gray satin ribbon handle.

The Happy Hello Simply Sent kit is one of the many free items available in the annual Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration  campaign running through March 22.  For every $50spent you can choose a free item from the catalog.   The Simply Sent Kits are designed to make card making a snap and include 8 diecut cards and super cute coordinating diecut envelopes and embellishments to make 8 cards.

Happy Hello Treat Box

2013_02_20IMG_0950My favorite free item in the Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration  is the Happy Hello Simply Sent Kit.  The kits are so versitle and intended to be used when you need a card in a hurry.  The Simply Sent Kits are designed to make card making a snap and include 8 diecut cards and super cute coordinating diecut envelopes and embellishments to make 8 cards.

Today’s Project started out as a simply sent card from the Happy Hello Kit #130149 but with a few scored lines a couple of snips and folds I converted the card into a treat box. I embellished the box with the sticker flower, rhinestones and twine and then filled a treat bag with candy and put it in the box.  Love it.  I really want to do a Happy Hello card workshop to put all the ideas into action.

Happy Hello

DSCI0007 Cammie was as excited as I was  when w.e saw that Stampin Up introduced the Happy Hello Simply Sent Kits as a free item in the Sale-A-Bration catalog. We both love the Stampin Up kits and love the free kits even more and today Cammie is showcasing 2 cards that she made using this fun kit.  Be sure to check out yesterday’s post to see how I used the kit.

Today’s card started out as a simply sent card from the Happy Hello Kit #130149.  The Simply Sent Kits are designed to make card making a snap and include 8 diecut cards and super cute coordinating diecut envelopes and embellishments to make 8 cards.  The sample cards are always cute but Cammie will never start out usiing the kit as designed she immediately thought outside the Simply Sent kit and add her own twist to make her cards.  Today’s card sshows what Cammie did to change it up just by adding a piece of daddodil cardstock to the die cut image.  DSCI0008

For Cammie’s second card, she flipped the diecut, and added Basic Gray cardstock and stepped it up using the white gel pen to create some faux stitching and embossed the sentiment in white.

The Happy Hello Simply Sent Kit is something that every card maker needs in their arsenal so that you can make a card in an instant. Hurry because Sale-A-Bration ends on March 22 and there is no limit to the number of free items you can get. This years Sale- A- Bration features 13 all new items plus 6 items from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  For every $50 in product sales you will earn 1 item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog for FREE.  Plus during Sale-A-BRation, for an order of $150 your will get 3 items free plus a pack of Silver  Glimmer paper for a free bonus and of course the $25 in Hostess dollars to spend as you wish.

Simply Sent Happy Hellos

2013_02_02IMG_0955We were so excited when we saw that Stampin Up introduced the Happy Hello Simply Sent Kits as a free item in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  This years Sale- A- Bration features 13 all new items plus 6 items from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  For every $50 in product sales you will earn 1 item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog for FREE.  Plus during Sale-A-BRation, for an order of $150 your will get 3 items free plus a pack of Silver  Glimmer paper for a free bonus and of course the $25 in Hostess dollars to spend as you wish.  Cammie and I challenged each other to come up with ways to use the Simply Sent Kits.  I started simple and used the Simply Sent Happy Hello kit #130149 as intended but switched up the location of the flower.  For my second card, I simply just layered a folded white tea lace paper doily #129399 and got a completly different look.

2013_02_02IMG_09512013_02_02MG_0953Stay tuned for more ideas to use this kit in a non-traditional way.

Love watercolor

Happy 22nd wedding anniversary to me and my husband Brad.  Can’t believe it has been that long.  To commemorate the day, this card started out as a Simply Sent kit from Stampin Up and then I stepped it up with a watercolor technique on vellum and place behind the intricate heart center.  I used some of the pleated satin ribbon (no longer available) and matching seam binding ribbon.

Simply Sent…Going Going Gone

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Get them while you still can all the simply sent card kits are going away including the everyday elegance kit #122377 used as the foundation of the cards on today’s post.  Sad news is that in the new catalog there will not be any of these kits so stock up now because you can create use them as is or dress them up like Cammie did to create a beautiful card.  The rose on todays cards were made from the wing and the branch from the bird builder punch #117191.

Simple Snowflake

 We all know people who say, “I am not creative and could never make a card” well this one is for you.

Purchase the simply sent Everyday Elegance card kit #122377, add a snowflake cut from the Snowflake #2 die #113460 and embellish with a little rhinestone bling #119246 and you have a very elegant and easy card.

Simply Sent Christmas

 What can I say but wow!  These are the cards that Cammie created for her Santa workshop for the PTO moms.  All the pieces  were precut and packaged in the cute bagolope (see yesterdays post) to create these Christmas cards.  The base of these cards were the cards from the Simply Sent Everyday Elegance card kits #122377.  To creat the Joy , Cammie used the candy cane and holly from the Stocking Accents die # 124099 for the J and Y.  The O was punched using the 1 3/4 inch Circle punch #119850 and the Snowflake punch #119852 with a silver brad in the center.  Please note that the candy cane and holly berry both used the yummy red glimmer paper #121790 to add extra bling effect.

The baja blue card was simply created using snowflakes cut from the Northern Frost Sizzlet strip #120901 in whisper white and silver glimmer paper #124005 and adorned with pearls #119247 and rhinestones #119246 to create an elegant holiday card.  The greeting is stamped on the sticker label included in the everyday elegance card kit.

These cards will be sure to WOW.
