Lovely Lily Pad, New Sale-a-bration Items

I took a break from Christmas yesterday and used some new Sale-a-bration (SAB) items. Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set, Lily Pad Dies (yes, you can get these for FREE), Lily Impressions DSP. All of these items you can earn for FREE! The stamps and DSP are FREE with a $50 order (each one) and the dies you would need to have a $100 order to qualify.

What is Sale-a-bration (SAB)? Its the most wonderful time of the year! January 3-March 31st you can earn FREE products from the SAB Catalog.  Right now as a demonstrator we can pre-order products in the Mini Catalog that comes out on January 3rd. We also are earning those SAB rewards.

I was so excited to play with the Lily Pad products. I have a customer who needed at Gift Certificate, so I always like to make a card to go with it. This is what I came up with. I kind of cased it from the front of the SAB Catalog. Its the card in the upper right hand side.

What I really cased was the banner with the flower on the left. So I put my twist on it and BAM! It was a jumping off point for me. I don’t know if this happens to you…… I get new products and then my mind goes blank. Its not like I can go on Pinterest, the products are still new and not a lot of samples.  So looking at the lovely samples that Stampin’ Up! provides for us is a huge inspiration for me.

My card base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Lovely Lipstick cardstock, scored at 4 1/4″. Then a layer of of the Lily Impressions DSP, 4″ x 5 1/4″.

Lovely Lily Pad, Lily Pad Dies, Lily Impressions dsp, all SAB, Shimmer White Embossing Powder, White Baker's Twine,

I stamped the Lily 3 times with Black Memento Ink and colored with Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends. I die cut them with the matching dies and then ended up cutting off all the white edges since I was going to layer each piece. I put Dimensionals on the bottom of each lily and curled the top of the flower with my bone folder and layered them.

Lovely Lily Pad, Lily Pad Dies, Lily Impressions dsp, all SAB, Shimmer White Embossing Powder, White Baker's Twine,

The Black banner is 1″ x 4 3/4″ and I embossed the sentiment from another SAB product, Happy Birthday to You with Shimmer White Embossing Powder, & flagged the end. Do you see the bottom edge of the banner? That die is also in the Lily Dies, I die cut it in Lovely Lipstick and adhered it.

You can see how the layers all went together.  I winked it with Wink of Stella too.

I finished off the card with a double White Baker’s Twine bow and a few Holiday Rhinestones.

All of these products will be available on January 3, 2020, that is unless you want to get your hands on them earlier……Join my team and you can order from the Mini and earn SAB rewards.

November Paper Pumpkin, Winter Gifts

I hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving! I took a little break. We had our daughter and grandkids for brunch and then the kids went to their dad’s for the week-end. So hard to share…….Got most of my Christmas decorations put out, just need to work on my porch and a few other things. Now I am back to work (like you can call this job work……) and getting ready for my Stamp Club Class tomorrow night. My craft room looks like a bomb went off. How does that happen? As hard as I try, it always ends up a total mess.

This kit is AMAZING! I put together a few of the tags, and love all the layering. I know I will have lots of left over pieces too. Watch the video and see how easy and elegant these tags are.

Each Winter Gifts kit comes with 14 sheets die-cut elements, 3 sheets laser-cut elements, 4 sheets silver foil die-cuts, 1 sheet silver foil die-cut elements, 3 yds. 1/4″ cotton ribbon, 8 yds. silver twine, 72 sequins (2 colors), 175 mini dimensionals, and 150 adhesive dots. And don’t forget the exclusive stamp set and Shaded Spruce ink spot!

The weather outside is frightful, but inside it’s so delightful.” Q: Why? A: Because for creative folks, cold weather is crafting weather. Of course!

Stamp Case Notepad

These notepads are always a big hit whenever we do them in class. I thought Laurie might like a “special” notepad for OnStage. This was her first Stampin’ Up! event.

You can purchase the Stamp Cases in the Annual Catalog on page 182. They come in package of 4, $6.

However you decide to decorate the stamp case, remember it has to be flat with no dimensionals, Rhinestones, or Pearls. So with that being said, I decided to use the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP. You need a piece that is about 6 7/8″ x 10 1/2″. You can slip it right in that plastic piece. I like to put it in and shut the case so you can see where you want to decorate on the front.  Since I was using this beautiful DSP, I might as well use the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements, which worked out perfectly since they are flat. I added a few of the stars (they come in all different sizes.) Use Tombow Liquid Glue to adhere them to the dsp.  I also used a copper Ornate Frame Die and the Large Letters (retired) Dies.  I used Wink of Stella on the “L”. Once I had all the elements on the front, I slipped it into the plastic piece.

Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP, Rightly Gleaming Foil Elements, Copper Foil Paper, Ornate Frames Dies, Big Shot, Large Letters Dies

Now for the inside. I had purchased these notepads at Staples some time ago and had them cut off 1″ from the bottom so it will fit in our stamp cases. They can do a whole stack at one time with their big cutting machine. They charge a small fee. I took a 2″ piece of the dsp and added to the front so you don’t see the Staples logo, and also added a strip of Copper Foil Paper. And also die cut a Copper “L”.  Once that was done, I added some Tear & Tape to the back and adhered it to the Stamp Case.

I ended up using some of the Gold Metallic Ribbon and colored it with my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend and tied it around the stamp case into a bow. I had already taken my photos and didn’t have time (can you say? last minute Lucy……) to retake them.

I also made this cute little purse from Stampin’ Gala. It holds 4 Ghirardelli squares. I wrapped each piece with dsp. No photo…….again.
