Easter Chick


A few of my friends and I got together for a Stamp-a-Stack (8 cards).  We had a blast! This is one of the cards we made.  Isn't the chick the cutest thing!!!!

The colors are Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Tangelo Twist, and Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper. The little bow is from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits™ Dies.  Of course the dies have much more to them.  The body is from the 2" circle punch, the wings are from the bird punch, and the feet and hair are from the Boho Blossom punch.  the beak is cut freehand.

More Sale-a-Bration items!

But wait ... there's more ...

Newsflash from Stampin’ Up!
“Since Blendabilities are no longer available as a Sale-A-Bration redemption item, we anticipate that the demand on other Sale-A-Bration items will be higher than forecasted. For that reason, all Sale-A-Bration items (with the exception of stamps) will be available “while supplies last.” To help alleviate any inconvenience this may cause, we’ve made more items available to redeem for free during these last few weeks of Sale-A-Bration”

Only two weeks left!  To place your Stampin' Up! order, click here.

Chalk Birthday

 

Happy Saturday!  The ColorBox Chalk Ink and refills are really cool on black paper.  The images were stamped in white craft using the Sale-a-bration Big Day Stamp Set. Then I colored the cake and birthday using a blender pen and just a drop of Aquamarine reinker.  It's a bit transparent, so it really does look like chalk.

The colors are Black, Whisper White, and Bermuda Bay.

Birthday Lotus Blossom


I'll be so sad when this Lotus Blossom is no longer available after Sale-A-Bration!  It is such a pretty stamp. 

Using the Sale-A-Bration Best Year Ever Designer series paper I was able to create two different looks with the same layout.  The top card colors are Soft Sky, Black, Best Year Ever DSP, and Whisper White.  The flower and black frame are cut out using the Deco Labels Framelit.  The bottom card is made using Crisp Cantaloupe.  I colors the small pearls on each card with the Soft Sky and Calypso Coral Blendabilities.  The sentiment is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set.

If you would like to join us in one of my classes or clubs, and are in the Milwaukee/Metro area, email me, or if you'd like to have your own workshop and receive your own cool hostess rewards, email me as well.

Irresistibly Yours Thinking of You


I'm really lovin' the Irresistibly Yours specialty designer series paper in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  This white paper with a glossy white pattern is perfect for coloring using a variety of techniques—coloring reveals the pattern.  Paired with Painted Petals stamp set, it just creates a pretty and simple card.

Here is a video ...
