Sale-A-Bration Continues

Hello Stampin' Friends,

Here's another card using the new Pedal Pusher stamp set available during Sale-A-Bration.

Actually, I used images from both new Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, Pedal Pusher and Party Pants, and Glitter Tape (also available free during a Sale-A- Bration).  I colored the bicycle image with my Blender Pens using Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry.  The stripes are from the Going Places designer paper stack.  I really like the way that simply cutting it on an angle adds interest to this card, don't you?  The glitter tape can be colored using a sponge dauber, but I decided to leave it white so it would stay neutral and not compete with the colored image.  It doesn't really show up well in the photo, but this sparkling sheer tape is gorgeous.  I used Stampin' Up's Archival Black ink for a crisp, clean image that doesn't bleed when colored with water-based ink.  I know that a lot of my customers have ordered this set and I'd love to see what you make with it!  Email me photos of your work and I'll share them on my blog and my FaceBook page!

Have a great day,

Brand-new Stamps!! Yay!

Hello again!

Beginning on February 16, Stampin ' Up has 2 new stamp sets that you can earn for FREE with any $50 purchase!  Biking is one of my favorite activities, so the Pedal Pusher stamp set really appeals to me.  It's great all by itself, but I also love the way it works with the stamp sets I already own.  On this card, I added the sun image from Kinda Eclectic, the "swish" from Work of Art, and of course the grunge is from one of my all-time favorites, Gorgeous Grunge.  The "Hi" is from the other brand-new stamp set which becomes available on Tuesday, Party Pants.  I'm working on a card to show you that uses this set, too!

Check out these 2 new stamp sets on my website beginning February 16.  Be sure to look for the third new Sale-a-Bration item also, a set of 3 rolls of gorgeous glitter tape in gold, silver & white!  (Hint:  you can color the white with a sponge dauber to match any color!)

Happy Stamping,

Hello ... and Goodbye!

Hi friends,

It's been a while since I've written a new post here, it's been a busy winter!  But I wanted to share with you a card I made using the "Hello" stamp set which can be earned for free during Sale-a-Bration, but only until February 15!  I love this clean & simple card, it took about 10 minutes to make from start to finish.  The cardstock I used is Daffodil Delight.  The ink colors are Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, and Lost Lagoon.  This set also includes the words "Birthday Boy" & "Birthday Girl" for more versatility.  I hope you'll give it a try!
