This is Beautiful Peacock, pg 7 of the SAB catalog.  I love this set.  I used Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist for colors on Whisper White Card Stock.  The embellishments, Tutti-Fruiti, are on pg 29 of the OC and the ribbon is from the AC.  Now through the end of March you can get this set FREE if you purchase $50 in product.

I just found this card and realize I never posted it during Sale-A-Bration, which is now over.  But those of you that were able to get this set will have another idea of how to use it.  I also used the glimmer tape that they offered the weeks ending SAB.  The DSP is from the Stack of DSP called Going Places, page 39 in the OC along with the Bow paper clips found on page 9.

I created this card using the sets, Flowering Fields page 12 in the SAB catalog, and the set Timeless Textures page 29 in the OC.  You can get this set contaning these beautiful flowers for FREE by purchasing $50 in merchandise before taxes and shipping.  This is only through the end of this month so don’t lose out if this is one of your favorites.  The colors I used are Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow.  The sentiment is from another SAB set which can be found on page 4 of the SAB Catty.

Honeycomb Happiness, page 15 of the SAB Catalog.  I also used the fantastic Balloon punch, page 13 OC.  I used the Wink of Stella glitter brush, page 24 of the OC, on the balloons.

This stamp set will only be available until February 15th.  If you want this set you need to order it ASAP, because it is one of those sets that go fast!  When ever anything is limited it never lasts long.  The sentiments in this set, Sky is the Limit, are awesome and can be found on page 16 of the SAB catalog.  I used the SAB Perfectly Artistic DSP.  This is also limited and will end February 15th.   Don’t wait it may not be there later.

I am sorry this picture is so small but I took it with my iphone instead of my camera.  It actually came out pretty good, except for the size.  I used acetate for the reflection of the tress in the water.  This is my absolute favorite set of all the stamps sets created by SU and I hope along with hundreds of other demos that they never retire it.  It has been around since 2001.  Wow!  I wish they still put the dates on our sets.  I used to like to see how long they lasted.  Many people have contacted SU and asked that this set never be retired, including me.  Hope they listen to us.
By the way, I used the dryer sheet technique on this card along with dazzling diamonds.

You can still get some of our SAB items up until midnight tonight but after that, they are gone.  If you planned on getting some of this beautiful DSP now is the time.  I hate to see it go it has been one of my favs.

Of course, there is no guaranty, but you may see a lot of SAB items and DSP available as prizes, at my annual Hostess Appreciation party.  Contact me HERE to find out how to qualify for an invite to this party.

I got the idea for this card from a demonstrator in Stampin’ Connection.  I copied her layout and changed the colors and embellishments.

That’s one of the nice things about being a demonstrator.  You have access to this site called “Stampin’ Connection”.  It is awesome!  To give you an example, right now there are 17, 480 pages (20 samples on each page) of cards, scrap book pages, and 3 D items that you can case (copy and share everything).  You never have to be concerned finding examples for your paper crafting.

Did I say that right now (only til the end of this month) you can become a demonstrator and get a kit valued at $150 for $99?  Another SAB wonderful offering.  Contact me HERE to find out more.

….to take advantage of the FREE item in the Sale-A-Bration catalog when spending $50.  The twine on this card is from the SAB catalog.  Look how nice it goes with our beautiful inks, pool party, crisp cantaloupe, and Summer Starfruit.  That has got to be the best reason for buying our products, you don’t have to guess on what embellishments goes the best with our colors…..they are all specifically dyed to match our papers, ribbons, inks, and card stock.  If you are a seasoned crafter or brand new, you know how important that is.

We made this card at Friday night club.  The background DSP is from Retro Fresh on page 19 and the stamp set is on page 26 (occasions catalog).  The punch used on this card is the Triangle punch also on page 26.  The twine is from SAB catalog.

21. March 2014 · Comments Off on Oh! the colors that blend….. · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

I bet you think that the background on this card is DSP, right?  Well, you would be wrong.  I used Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Summer StarFruit, Pool Party ink and the stamp set, Petal Parade from SAB catalog to create the background.  In addition, I used Gorgeous Grunge to get that splattered look with Stazon ink.  I used the twine from SAB Sweet Sorbet pack.  That’s what I love about our products, with all the matching embellishments, creating a card with all kinds of texture is easy peasey.

The image and the sentiment on this card is from the set “Another Great Year” found on page 34 in the occasions catalog.  I used the Starburst Framelits (same page) and paper pierced the circle with our white gel pen to resemble stitching.

19. March 2014 · Comments Off on sneak peek · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

I used Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit on the flowers  and then lined them in our Dazzling Details (Silver).  This is a set that will come out July 1st in the new Big catalog.  We got this as a gift at leadership from SU.  It is a very pretty stamp set called So Very Happy.  Has great images and sentiments.  Very versatile set.

Well SU didn’t offer any St. Patrick’s Day stamps in this years Spring catalog but I improvised using our little heart punch to make the Shamrock.  The sentiment is from our wonderful set, Teeny Tiny Wishes, from the BIG catalog on page 44.  This set covers just about any Holiday you can think of.  The banners and banner punch are from the SAB catalog.  Sorry, that my camera did not pick up the gold that I used for background on my image and sentiment.

We will be celebrating with our traditonal Cornbeef and Cabbage dinner tonight with all the fixin’s including Irish Soda Bread, YUM!  Hope y’all have a great Day and are sportin’ the green!!

16. March 2014 · Comments Off on · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

I used the color block technique on this card.  The image is from Another Great Year found in the Occasions catalog on page 34.  The DSP is from Sale-A-Bration, as is the cork and the twine.

I really would love your comments on this card.  It was so much fun creating this.  I love the animals in our sets.  We sure have a lot of them.  This little bunny is from the set Storybook Friends found on page 52 of the Big catalog.  The flower is from the set, Peaceful Petals on page 20 of the Occasions catalog, and I paper pieced it with 6 layers.  The fence I created from the background stamp Hardwood, page 37.  I wanted our little bunny to appear like he was on one of those little oriental borders we see in gardens.  What do you think?
WooHoo! Spring is here!

The flowers on this card front are from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  With a $50 purchase you can get a sheet of cork embellishments plus 3 wheels of gorgeous twine in Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer starfruit.  What an awesome deal!  I love embellishing my cards with all different kinds of texture.  Here I also used the neutrals Candy dots in the center of each flower.  Hope you like it!

13. March 2014 · Comments Off on Thank You! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

Doesn’t this card look like Spring?  It is really starting to get warm here and I am loving it!  That’s why I chose to live in the South.  However, I see on the news that we are to expect another cold front coming this way but I do hope it doesn’t last long.  I am ready for hot, hot, hot weather!  So while I am waiting, I can do the next best thing.  Create the feeling of Spring in my cards.

I haven’t used this DSP in so long I almost forgot I had it.  It is from the Big catalog and is called Etcetera.  I love this stamp set for watercoloring.  I used one of our wooden embellishments found on page 18 of the Occasions catalog and covered it with Retro washi tape found on 19.  I then added a button to the top of it from our in-color buttons.  I love a stamp set that has sentiments along with crisp images and this set (So Very Grateful), does it all, page 32.  Inside it says “And I’m so very grateful”.

Again, I am on a Pistachio Pudding roll here.  Although, what can you say about this gorgeous Sale-A-Bration DSP?  It is so HOT right now.  Especially because it goes so well with our new in-colors.  So much fun to create with all the wonderful products this spring.  I used crisp cantaloupe re-inker with alcohol and spritzed the silver glimmer paper to make the butterfly.  I think it gives it some needed pizazz!

09. March 2014 · Comments Off on I just love Summer! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

It seems I am hooked on Pistachio Pudding lately.  I am so glad we get to keep these gorgeous in-colors for another year.  They are my favs so far.  However, I am sure gonna miss Summer Starfruit, gumball green and Midnight Muse.  Only a few more months to use them.  I used Summer Starfruit on this card for one of the flowers.  Maybe they will keep it as a core color, I hope, hope, hope.  And to think I disliked it so when I first saw it.  Who knew?  BTW, isn’t this set, Perfect Pennants, the best set of sentiments in a long time?
