Valentine Card

January 22nd, 2015 by craftdoc

Here’s another easy Valentine’s Day card using the Designer Series Paper Irresistibly Yours (FREE during Sale-A-Bration).  The stamp set I used is Hello Life from the Occasions catalog.

Today’s Tips:

-Use a sponge or brayer to add color to the DSP.  The shiny embossed areas resists the ink – how cool is that!  You can make it any color or combination.  Here I used Pink Pirouette.  Don’t use a sponge dauber – the sharp edges of the paper can damage it.

-All supplies can be purchased at my website shop.

Sale-A-Brate

January 10th, 2015 by craftdoc

Here is my other favorite Sale-A-Bration free stamp set – A Happy Thing.  I love the cute bird.  My mom said it looked like an African bird, so use bright colors.  The Stampin’ Up! Blendabilites are perfect for the coloring and each set is free with a $50 purchase.

Today’s Tips:

-I embossed the colorful bird with Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder for an extra sparkle.

-The sentiment is from Big on You – new in the Occasions catalog.

-Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry cardstock will match the Sale-A-Bration ribbon.

December 31st, 2014 by craftdoc

The last day to order from the Holiday Catalog is Jan 5.  A few popular sets are not on the carryover list such as Beauty of the Season, White Christmas, Homemade Holiday and Ornamental Pine.  First day for the Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration is January 6.  I ‘m excited that Blendabilities sets are one of the freebies we can earn during SAB.  There are also some fun new stamp sets and accessories – all will only be available Jan 6-March 31.  One free item for each $50 in purchase.  Extra Hostess Benefits for parties over $250 and extra goodies for new demonstrators too.  All the details will be at my website starting on Jan 6.

Best Day Ever is a fun new set.  Here’s a set sampler I made for my downline with the  matching ribbon, buttons and paper.
