Painted Seasons Bundle - Free During Sale-a-Bration!

Stampin' Up! has given us an AWESOME bundle we can earn free with a $100 order through the end of March.  Painted Seasons Bundle has really, really gorgeous Designer Series Paper (3 each of 4 double sided sheets) with winning color combinations.  Added to the drop dead gorgeous DSP is the coordinating cling (red rubber) distinktive stamp set.  It's called Painted Seasons with good reason--there are plants for every season of the year including flowers, ferns, pinecones, and leaves.  

For today's quick and easy Painted Seasons Bundle card, I wanted the mushroom DSP to take front and center stage.  I think I succeeded!  My cardstock color choices came directly from the DSP.  Part of My Story provided the sentiment once again.  I've been on a bit of kick with that stamp set--using it for so many cards:)  It's a free Sale-a-Bration option (with a $50 order), so all the stamps used on this card--plus the DSP--are all free Sale-a-Bration options!

You might not recognize the Story Label Punch.  It's part of a group of products available in March only.  As Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, we can purchase these items now.  And if you want to purchase the Starter Kit, you can add them to your kit!  Check out the pic below that shows framelits for the Painted Seasons and Story Label Punch.  There are also framelits for the frog, cupcake, and lily Sale-a-Bration stamp sets;)

The Starter Kit is on special right now with $175 of anything you want for $99, free shipping!  Add in the awesome craft tote for $30 if you wish--it's only available with a Starter Kit purchase.  Just click here for more information and/or to get your kit now.  Although you are not obligated to make any purchases once you get your Starter Kit, all purchases after that are 20-25% off as long as you remain active.  That's right, you need never pay full price again!  Email me with any questions at all!

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!

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.
