Okay, this was one of those sets that I was NOT going to buy.  Yeah!  Well I saw so much of it on the internet I knew that I just had to have it.  It has some reall cool stamps in it besides sentiments.  I love stamp sets that have both images and sentiments.  They really are the most versatile.  I used soft Sky on this card.  Hope you like it!

Y’all I had so much fun creating this card.  I think it is so stinkin’ cute.  I love the Zoo Babies set and this is the first time I have had a chance to play with it.  You can find it on page 54 of the big catalog.  I did use quite a bit of embellishments from the Occasions mini catalog.  I love this Retro Fresh DSP, it’s the bomb!

I used the Starburst Sayings stamp set and Framelits again on canvas with Summer Starfruit ink, only this time with a background paper (Sweet Sorbet) instead of the embossed background.  In addition, I used the beautiful matching colored twine that is another SAB product on the background of the card.  I have really fallen in love with Summer Starfruit ink and to think I turned my nose up at it when I first saw it!  One of those colors that tends to grow on you and keeps on giving!LOL

Again, both the DSP (High Tide), and Stamp set (Hello, Sailor), is from the Occasions mini catalog on page 24.  This is another project we made at Saturday’s camp.  The Banner Blast stamp set along with the Banner punch are Sale-A-Bration items that you can get FREE with a $50 purchase.  In addition, the large banners are cut with the Big Shot Framelit dies (Banners), found on page 27 of the Occasions catalog.  I love that they all go so well together, don’t you?

Isn’t this DSP beautiful?  The mini SAB catalog does not do justice to this gorgeous paper, Sweet Sorbet (SAB).  So pretty.  You can use it with so many of our in-color inks.  I used the Decorative Dots embossing Folder (SAB) to layer the sentiment.  The stamp set is Petal Parade (SAB) and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Remember, with every $50 purchase of merchandise you can get one of these SAB items FREE.
The petite flowers with matching punch can be found in the occasions catalog on page 33.

If you belonged to my Friday evening club, you would have made this card as one of your projects.  I love the DSP High Tide, the selections are so awesome!  Notice how this background DSP makes it appear that the bottle (also cut from one the DSPs) is floating and bouncing along in the water.  I used the Sale-a-bration, Banner Blast, with the matching Banner punch and added them to the to the top of the card on Baker’s twine.  This is one of those fun projects that everyone loves.  It also make a very nice masculine card.

I used several items on this card.  The Embossing folder, Arrors Textured Impressions, found on page 26, So Very Grateful Stamp set (page 32), all in the occasions catalog.  I stamped and colored the image on our watercolor paper, distressed the background with Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and cut the image out with our framelits Apothecary Accents.  The sentiment is from Four You, and all of these are found in the Big Catalog.   Hope you like it!

If you came to my camp this past weekend, this is one of the cards you would have made.  I used canvas with Summer starfruit ink and cut it out with the Starburst framelits, found on page 34 of the occasions catalog.  The stamp set is called Starburst Sayings and is so versatile.  I just love it!  I dyed the doily with Calyso Coral reinkers and a spritzer.

I am so glad that SU brought this color back as one of our core colors.  I especially love all of the colors in our SAB Free items.  This has to be my favorite SAB since I became a Demonstrator over 11 years ago.  It just makes my heart smile.  You can get this gorgeous DSP FREE with a purchase of $50.  In addition, if you have a workshop of $300 or more, you get an additional $30 in FREE stuff.  That is easy to do at this time of the year during February and March.  Contact me HERE to find out more.

I used several techniques and tools on this card.  The chevron punch on the core’dinations card stock.  I then sanded it for that distressed look.  I used shimmery card stock on the right side of the card and spritzed it generously with water.  I added some reinkers, strawberry slush and crisp cantaloupe and blended it together.  I added both colors of the stretch ribbon and watercolored 3 flowers with the aqua Painter.  I then pieced the petals together from all 3 flowers using the “paper piecing technique”.  What do y’all think?

This DSP reminds me of the recent cruise we went on because of the gorgeous backgrounds that look so much like the water that we went scuba and snorkling in.  So crystal clear and shimmery.  Oh what I wouldn’t give to be back there in that refreshing and tropical surroundings.  However, we have had such beautiful weather this week, high 70’s that I feel we are close.  The paper is High Tide and the stamp set is Hello, Sailor, both found on page 25 of the occasions catalog.

I love this Kaleidoscope DSP and the Geometrical Stamp set.  You can find them both on pages 26 & 27 of the Occasions catalog.  I got the idea of the cut out triangles from Leadership conference this year.  We did them on tags and they were so stinkin’ cute I wanted to try them out on a card.  I used the Triangle punch on this card and it is also found on page 26.  I topped the card off with our candy dots and the wooden embellishments found on page 18.  Hope you like it!

How do you like the background on this card?  Well I made it with the SAB stamp set Petal Parade that you can get FREE with a $50 purchase.  I used crisp cantaloupe, Pistachio pudding, and coastal cabana, three of our new incolors.  Think how pretty this would be as a background for a lovely spring scrap book page.

15. February 2014 · Comments Off on Holy Hexagons! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

Is it obvious how much I love this Sweet Sorbet DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog?  One of the reasons is because I love the new In-Colors so much this year and this paper goes great with them.  Remember with every $50 you spend in product you get to choose an item from the SAB catalog FREE.  Hexagons are so popular right now that you may want to pick up the ‘Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die’, found on page 26 of the Occasions mini.

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Just Sayin’ found on page 36 of the Occasions catalog.  In addition, I used the matching framelit dies, “Word Bubbles”.  You can save a whopping 15% by purchasing this by the bundle.  There is even a word bubble framelit that makes really cute clouds.

I hope all y’all have the best Valentine’s Day ever!  Here is my Valentine card for y’all! So easy to create.  I used our new Scalloped Tag punch found on page 35 of the Occasions catalog and the Stamp set “Love You More”.   I distressed the Hearts using the sanding block and core’dinations card stock found on page 157.  I think it just adds another dimension to this card.  The background was created with the “Positively Chevron (page 126) and Smokey Slate ink.

I love the gorgeous dsp from the SAB catalog, and the matching twine, also from the SAB catalog, is to die for.  I used the cork that comes with the twine on this card and I really think it makes it pop!  And to think that with a $50 order you can get either one of these items FREE!  Right now you can also make an extra $30 when you host a workshop with me.  Contact me HERE to learn more.  If you don’t have a Sale-A-Bration catalog, just let me know.  You don’t want to miss out on any of these awesome deals.

This is one of those cards that uses a lot of punching.  I used the 3/4″ circle punch for the balls and the Hexagon punch to make the tails in the banner.  The set is from Happy Congratulations in the Occasions catalog on page 37.  I used the embossing folder, Decorative Dots from the SAB catalog on page 12.

I just love the new twine that is on page 12 of the SAB catalog.  It comes in Pool Party, Crisp Cantalope, and Summer Starfruit.  You get 30 yards of this plus a printed sheet of adhesive back cork (58 pieces).  And all this you can get FREE with a $50 purchase.  I used the Sweet Sorbet DSP for my back ground, something else that is FREE during SAB going on now until the 31st of March.  Don’t wait too long to get yours.

Again I used the cork embellishments that you can get FREE in the SAB catalog.  I just love the way it sets off this card.  In addition, I used the stamp set Geometrical and the Starburst Framelits, also from the Occasions catalog.  I used the candy dots to embellish the flowers and the sentiment.

05. February 2014 · Comments Off on Chevron Back Ground! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

I had more fun creating this card.  I bought the back ground stamp “Chevron” when the BIG catalog came out and have never used it.  Well, I ran across it the other day and of course, wondered why I hadn’t used it.  So I quickly got out my Crumb cake ink pad and proceeded to stamp it on Very Vanilla card Stock.  I just loved the way it came out so I got carried away using the gorgeous stamp set from the occasions catalog, Petite Petals, and the matching punch, page 33.  I also did the flower in green and cut out little petals and used them as the leaves.  I finished it off with SAB items, Colored twines, and banner punch.

03. February 2014 · Comments Off on Love you More! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

This is the perfect stamp set for anyone you love.  Just like my little granddaughter, we are always saying “I love you more” back and forth and then she finally tells me that she loves me to infinity, and the moon and back.  You won’t find this in the catalogs but you can buy it while they last, just contact me here to find out.

As in the stamp yesterday, this is also from the same set Baby, We’ve Grown.  It is such a cute set, I knew I was going to have to buy it even though I’m not expecting any more children in my family just yet, I know that I can use for other things.  Like this rabbit for instance can be used on Easter cards.  Now tell me, don’t you just love this little guy?  The banners were cut out with the banner punch found on 13 of the Sale-a-bration catalog.  You can get them both FREE with a $100 purchase.

I think I used a little too much brightness in trying to adjust my camera.  I know it’s hard to tell but the card base is Summer Starfruit.  I used the stamp set “Baby, We’ve Grown” , page 28, and the oval framelits.  The sentiment is from Starburst Sayings (page 34) and cut out with starburst framelits, also on the same page.  Hope you like it!
