BERRY BLESSINGS FOR YOU

With Sale-A-Bration in full swing, I thought that I’d show you what can be done with one of the great Free choices.  This Berry Blessings Bundle(157613) is so cheery and bright it will certainly put a smile on your face!

You can add it to your shopping cart with a $120 purchase.

I used the Strawberry Builder Punch(154239) and then added seeds with the Real Red Stampin’ Write and finished those berries off with a little Real Red ink sponged on for depth.

The layout from CAS(E) this sketch was my starting point.

Which is why I used a Gold Hoops embellishment to define the focal image.  TIP: Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the hoop, they are certainly tough enough hold it down!

Here’s the list of products used.

NEWS FLASH FROM THE DONKEY

News Flash!  The donkey speaks and I can’t help but agree with his message.

The feature is the darling donkey as well as the message from another Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Approaching Perfection(155282).  I just can’t help but laugh while agreeing with this message, lol!

For this card, I’m playing along with the new Designer’s Choice challenge from SUO(Stampin’ Up! only) Challenges.

MY FIRST “SKINNY” CARD

Hi there and welcome to Friday!  Today, I’m showing you my very first “skinny” card.  I’ve never made one before but really love the way this one turned out!

I kept it simple with a few images from the Prettiest Birthday Bundle(156247).  But… I felt that the background mat needed a little something, so used the new Painted Textures 3D embossing folder to add that something!

This is my entry for the new Freshly Made Sketches challenge of 2021!

The Pastel Pearls(154317) from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue were calling to me and they are the perfect finish for this prettiest birthday card!

LOVE & LAUGHTER FROM SALE-A-BRATION

Hi on this second day of Sale-A-Bration !  Today’s card features the Corner Bouquet Sale-A-bration set as well as the Many Messages Bundle with it’s greeting full of love and laughter!

I coloured that lovely image directly on the stamp with an assortment of Stampin’ Write Markers from both the Brights and Subtles collections.

Now, let me tell you about the Many Messages Bundle(156272) – it rocks!  It is full of greetings and they are all on one stamp so you can layer the die over top and cut them all out at the same time!  I Love it!

You can also stamp only select greetings and cut them out especially for your project as shown below.

Make sure to check it out on page 35 of the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue!

Here’s the list of products used to create today’s card.

THE HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS

Today is the day to shop for the items you’ve been wanting from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue!  Perhaps you have the Prettiest Birthday Bundle(156247) on your list!  It sure was on mine, and here is the first card I created with it!

What better way to put the happy in a birthday than with a bunch of colourful balloons!  I put our Stampin’ Blends to work to add the colour for these and love the way they turned out!  That beautiful label is included in the dies for this set and will be used a lot.

I used a piece of designer paper from the Playing with Patterns pack as a starting point and to play along with the CAS(E) this sketch layout.

Here is the list of products, just click on any picture and it will take you to my store.

FOR A PEACEFUL BIRTHDAY

Hello and welcome!  Today’s card is a step away from Christmas to celebrate a birthday.  We have a lot of birthday’s to celebrate in December and I’m building up my stash!

I haven’t used the Forever Fern Bundle(154094) for quite a while and it helped to make this card come together just the way I liked!

There are a couple of other pieces of the Forever Fern Suite on this card too, check out the Gold Hoop Embellishment(152474) and the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo(152475).

The background to this lovely card plays along with The Paper Players latest sketch challenge too!

I was also really happy to see that my card from last week was chosen as one of the “Cut Above” submissions.  Thank you to the crew at The Paper Players!

BIRTHDAY FLOWERS

Hi and welcome!  It has occurred to me that my collection of birthday cards is getting low – so – I’m stepping away from Christmas to show you this latest birthday card!

I love the Ornate Layers dies that go along with the Ornate Style stamp set that come in a Bundle(154119).

This card combines Purple Posy with Highland Heather and I added a touch of Garden Green for the leaves on that pretty little flower.

To play along with the CAS(E) this sketch layout I used the Well Written dies(151816) for the birthday greeting!

HAVE A CURVY BIRTHDAY

Hi!  What is a curvy birthday?  Well, there’s a new stamp set promotion coming on November 3, 2020 that shows a variety of curvy images and greetings.  Today, I’m showing you a sneak peak of just one of those stamp sets!

This card was created using the Quite Curvy Bundle and it is so pretty!  I paired the images up with a piece from the Forever Greenery designer paper(152492) to highlight those lovely leaves and pretty bluebirds!

The matching dies to this set make it easy to cut out the curves and I used one as a guideline for the birthday greeting.

Thanks to The Paper Players new sketch challenge for the great layout!  Here’s their sketch.

BIRTHDAY’S AND COOKIES GO TOGETHER

Who likes chocolate chip cookies?  Me, me, me!  I had fun with the Nothing’s Better Than Bundle for today’s very orange card!

With, those delicious chocolate chips cookies!!!  I am playing along with two challenges today.  The Paper Players,

and, SUO Challenges which is to feature birthdays!

Who says you can’t have cookies instead of cake for a birthday!  I used the Word Wishes Dies(151816)  for the birthday greeting and added the extra challenge of using our Foam Adhesive Sheets(152815) to cut out those words.  They pop those words up nicely, but make a note that you really need to carry a lot of patience when popping out all of the tiny bits, lol.  Ask me how I know!

A BEVY OF WINTER TULIPS

Ok, I know that tulips don’t bloom up here right now, but don’t we all need a pretty blast of summer colours right now?

There they are!  I used the Timeless Tulips Bundle to create this bevy of blooms and a “few” of the inks from the Brights Colour Collection!  The matching punch in this bundle made it super easy to build this bouquet!  I also used a piece of designer paper from the Playing with Patterns collection(152490) which is 15% off right now!

Where did I get this ideas for summer colours?  From the new challenge from SUO Challenges(Stampin’ Up Only).

I took on the challenge of using every one of these beautiful colours so my tulip garden would shine!
