St. Patrick's Day Treat-Stampin' Up!, FREE pdf!

We made this sweet little St. Patrick's Day treat in this month's stamp club in San Antonio.  It features the extremely versatile Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper (free Sale-a-Bration item with a $50 order) and the equally versatile Amazing Life stamp set (Occasions Catalog).

stpatricksdaystampinupamazinglifeThis is a quick and easy project (my regular style:) You can get 3 of these out of a single piece of cardstock, so it's easy on your pocketbook as well as easy on your schedule!

I love combining Lemon Lime Twist with Mossy Meadow.  Here, they give a modern twist to a classic St. Patrick's Day image--the four-leaf clover.  I also added the gold-edged ribbon as a nod to another St. Patrick's Day symbol, pots of gold.

If you are in the Greater San Antonio area, consider joining us for monthly stamp club in San Antonio. We make cute 3D items like this each month! You can come as my guest, free of charge with no obligation to join.  Full information is here.

You can get 3 of these cute St. Patrick's Day treat holders from a single piece of cardstock, so you can make a stack of them for co-workers, school friends, neighbors, etc. without breaking the bank.  I have a mini bag of M&M's in mine.  You can use any mini bag of treats that is fairly flat or a teabag if you want a sugar free option.  Click here for the FREE pdf.  You're welcome!


So Hoppy Together Quick and Easy Card

The cute, whimsical frogs in So Hoppy Together stamp set (a free Sale-a-Bration option with $50 purchase) are perfect for the young and young at heart.  Who can resist smiling at this cute frog?  Today's card is another example of what I call "encouragement cards."  It's perfect for a kid preparing for tests or struggling in school, someone on a weight loss journey, someone in the midst of medical tests or cancer treatment...anyone facing life's many challenges!

We made this card in February during my monthly Stamp Club in San Antonio.  You can read about that here.  Please consider joining us if you live in the San Antonio area.  It features the fabulous new Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies (Occasions Catalog) and a bit of coloring with Stampin' Blends.

Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set -Part of My Story

My favorite Sale-a-Bration stamp set is Part of My Story.  It's an all words ie sentiments stamp set in cling mount (red rubber), and the expressions are really fabulous!  Each phrase came from a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  Stampin' Up! asked us demonstrators to submit the phrases we most wanted to see in a stamp set.  Thousands of entries came in, and these 6 were chosen to feature during Sale-a-Bration.  I love every single one!

partofmystorystampinupWe made this card in my January Stamp Club (read about stamp club here) with a love theme that could go well beyond Valentines Day.  Love is always appropriate and in season!  In fact, this is really more of what I call an "encouragement card."

There is another Sale-a-Bration item in today's card:  Lovely Lipstick Foil Paper.  I love its rich color, and running it through the Big Shot with the new Occasions Catalog Lace Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder was the perfect way to showcase its beauty.  "Dynamic" is a certain type of embossing folder that delivers very deep embossing.  It's perfect for the Lovely Lipstick Foil Paper!

Both Part of My Story rubberstamp set and Lovely Lipstick Foil Paper are available FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-a-Bration ($50 order will bring both these options up for you:)  You get to choose one Sale-a-Bration reward for every $50 you spend through March 31.  But don't delay as some of the products "sell out" ie run out of stock.
