CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Farewell to Sale-a-Bration

Time for a nice Saturday blog hop for Create with Connie and Mary!

This week our theme is Sale-a-Bration. You know, make a $50 Stampin’ Up purchase (before shipping and tax) choose a free item from a special selection of made-for-Sale-a-Bration only items.  So, this can mean any number of products to show you!

I chose three to show you in one card!

libbystamps, stampin up, Avant Garden, Inside the Lines DSP, 3/8 Metallic Ribbon

The card base has a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Inside the Lines DSP adhered to it. I layered it with a Avant Garden stamped panel, finishing it off with a piece of 3/8 Metallic Ribbon in silver.

I thought the black and white made for a dramatic, stunning card.

I did have a friend in mind when I chose this sentiment from the Avant Garden stamp set. She has lots of health issues, but takes each doctor visit, medical procedure or debilitating day with a load of humor! She keeps everyone in lots laughter as she is in grave pain!

Hello Stylish Stems

I’m quite busy in planning cards for my March Card Buffet this upcoming weekend. Whew! Time flies!

Took some time out to design a card for Try Stamping on Tuesday. We have a cool sketch to follow this time around –

Challenge #313. Optional Theme : Beautiful Flowers

I had a card in mind just by looking at the sketch! Something fun and springlike –

libbystamps, stampin up, Any Occasion, Stylish Stems Framelits, Duet Banner Punch, Inside The Lines DSP, Sale-a-Bration 2017, SAB, Occasions 2017, TSOT#313

Isn’t this great? I love it because it’s a little different from what is all over the interweb.

Of course, this is a favorite color combo of mine……

Notice the lovely background DSP? It’s FREE. Yes, free! Spend $50 from Stampin Up and you can select this as your free item because it’s Sale-a-Bration.

These die cut flowers really add some nice POP to this card! Both flower shapes come in the set.

Hard to tell in the picture, but I adhered just the round center to the black flower back. Either way, still a lovely card! I think it will be on the Card Buffet this weekend!

Comments are always appreciated.

Check out what the other design team members created and play along with us! We’re on Facebook too!

Hope, Is on The Way

Should read, help. Help is on the way…..

A have a couple of friends who have RA, Rheumatoid Arthritis, (recently noted, Shelli Gardner, Stampin’ Up! founder does too) and the days can be unpredictable in how they feel.

Lately it’s been really rough for one of my friends. Luckily, today she go in to have a procedure to get some relief. Praises for her! And, of course, I had to create a card for her!

I originally cut this piece of DSP, a FREEBIE with Sale-a-Bration, and looked at the images that we created by the cut. I really liked the bee on the flower on the right side. That became the area in which I created around.

I thought the die cut sentiment and stamped image was pretty appropriate.

All in all she will ‘get it’. She’s just that way!

So now after she feeling less pain, we can get back to our card making sessions!!!

Side note when designing a card with a dark base with an angled front DSP panel, make the inside writing area, angled the same way too!
