Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Last Chance Samples!

Sale-a-bration ends today! Don’t miss it!

This SAB Outlined Occasions card was created with scraps my sister had left over from an old project she was working on.  This paper is retired and the Top Note die-cut shape was cut a quarter of the way down so I created this card to utilize her scraps.

To create the matching envelop, the decoration on the envelope flap was created by tracing the outline of the flap on Basic Gray pattern paper, which was trimmed out and adhered to the flap.

This card inspired the next card created with the same layout and SAB Outline Occasions stamp set with different papers, colors and coordinating envelope.

The Pocketful of Posies pattern paper makes this card extra special, in addition to the red liquid glitter on the tiny little stars in the expression.

The envelope was stepped up to ‘Wow!’ with a layer of matching pattern paper liner

And here’s a close up of the fun little glitter stars!

Stampin’ Up! Flowers

Only 3 days left of Sale-a-bration! Don’t miss it!

I love combining these stamp sets: Mixed Bunch and SAB Elementary Elegance.   The word phrases in Elementary Elegance are so lovely and it’s so easy to create something fun with the big lovely flowers of Mixed Bunch.

I saw this color combination – Elegant Eggplant, Concord Crush & Melon Mambo – in a color challenge.  I also used a scs sketch challenge to create this card.  What inspires you?

The flower has four layers: 1.  Concord Crush Mixed Bunch flower stamped on Whisper White punched with the Blossom punch.  2. Concord Crush punched with Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch.  3. Mixed Bunch center stamped in Melon Mambo punched with 3/4″ circle punch popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional. 4. The same centered stamped in White craft ink on Melon Mambo cs punched with 1/2″ circle punch.
