Now that we have gotten through the wetest part of the month of February, we have settled into some beautiful clear, sunny days that give me inspiration for the upcoming Spring classes.Sale-A Bration is going into the last month, so stock up with supplies from any catalog in order to receive free product. Remember, for every $50 you spend, you may choose one free product from the Sale- A- Bration Catalog. One of my favorite things this Sale-A- Bration is the Butterfly Basic Bundle with the Butterfly Thinlet dies as well as the pretty little organza flowers in the Artisan Embellishment package. If you are interested in learning how to use these materials as well as having a technique class in vellum and using the linen look on your cards, the next class is for you. So reserve your seat as soon as you can to insure your place in the March 7th class. Hope to hear from you soon.

The Lotus Blossom Stamp Set is one very unique set that is in the SAB catalog of free items.
It is quite unique, as it is a 3 step stamp set that gives amazing depth. In this case I took it a step further by using two different color inks to make a bigger statement
Each stamp is placed on a block and stamped in the order you see below to get the depth of this flower. Because of the tab at the top of each photo polymer stamp, it is very simple to line the stamps up each time you add the next layer.
The sample to the left uses the same color each time. The trick is to stamp off once after re-inking stamp #3 which allows the previous layers to show through.
Some of the products I used for my card include the following:
Best Year Ever and Big Day SAB Sneak Peek! Celebrate Your Big Day With Cake-It is so easy to do with some brand new paper and stamps being featured in the new Occasions Catalog and SAB brochure next Tuesday, January 6th.
I was able to get the paper Best Year Ever, Big Day Stamp Set, ribbon and Pom Pom Trim free from the SAB Promotion. Doesn’t the happy pastel colors just scream to you, pull you in, make you happy? That is just what the receiver of this card will do when they open this card on their birthday. And what about that cute Calypso Coral Pom Pom Trim ? Let’s Party! Don’t forget the matching colored ribbon. Yummy!
The launch of the 2015 New Occasions Catalog and beginning of Sale-A-Bration begins January 6th. It is hard to stop talking about the brand new Bow Builder Punch and Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die highlighted in the new Occasions Catalog.
How cute is this bow featured on the belly band that surrounds the new Mini Treat Bag Thinlits die? The bows are so simple to assemble and add so much to any project. With this punch you can build a baby sized bow from cardstock or Designer Series Paper . Their finished size is 2 1/4″ x /7/8″. This card uses the new Designer Series Papers, Birthday Bash and Sweet Dreams. It is time to begin making that wish list. For every $50 order, you can choose a free Sale-A-Bration item.
Some of the materials used in creating this bag include:
It is so exciting that Sale-A-Bration is Coming, Today’s post is another sneak peek that uses free materials I have received because I had spent $50 or more! Yes for every $50 spent on the Clearance Rack, Annual Catalog, or Occasions Catalog, I am able to get free product. The product in the Occasions catalog will only be here for a few months as it is not going to be carried over in the new annual catalog for next year. That means if you like it, buy it, beginning January 6th and ending March 31 to get Sale-A-Bration freebies!
Here is a sample of a 3 step stamp, Lotus Blossom. Using each stamp with the same ink looks like you have shaded and watercolored this simple yet beautiful flower. As in previous posts, I used layers of papers in order to make the Blossom pop!
Some of the other products I used on this card are staples for the annual catty!
Place an on-line order of $300 or more (before shipping and tax), you’ll get a bonus of $30 in additional Hostess Rewards. Stock up for yourself or team up with a few friends to place one on-line order and qualify. For example, if you normally would earn $50 in hostess rewards (free Stampin’ Up! product) with a $300 order, you’ll bump up to $80 (includes the $30 bonus) during Sale-A-Bration.
Do you go to classes or crops that require that you do some embossing while you are there but you do not want to lug your Big Shot or simply can not afford one?

Here is a great Masculine card for some inspiration today.
Using Water Color gives your project a great deal of softness and finish! I love the textures of the paper and how the inks run through the ripples of that paper canvas. Different hues of the same color palette take on such a different life.
