Irresistible Chick!

What to do with my "almost shameful"stash of fabby papers when there are people who need to receive a card?

I couldn't resist ... I used some of it!  

Actually, the stash paper I used is the retired 'Irresistibly Yours' dsp.  

But not to worry, because this year's version in the annual catalog is on page 172, "Irresistibly Floral" ... and it's equally beautiful and totally customizable to match the various color palettes of your cards, scrapbook pages, or other paper crafting projects.  All it takes is simple brayering or sponging.  I used our Sponge Brayers from p. 180, which includes 2 handles and 4 roller sponges!

Then I couldn't resist adding a little glam to her feathers with Wink of Stella!

Happily, this hip chick has already flown this coop and is on her way to welcome a new team member.  I hope she likes it!

Pssst!  If you've given any thought to getting your Stampin' Up! products at a discount with no obligations except enjoying new goodies, I'd love to welcome you to our brood as well!  During Sale-A-Bration you get an added free stamp set of your choice from any current catalog when you purchase the starter kit.  All of the details are right here.  Free SAB add-on set expires March 31.   😉

Taco 'Bout Your Awesomeness!

Last week I heard a brief discussion about the possibility of changing the 'state food' of Texas from 'Chili Con Carne' to ... guess what .... Tacos!    

First ... I'm not a Texan originally.  But, in all my Texas years, I'm not sure I've ever eaten 'Chili Con Carne'.  I can say with certainty that I've never 'ordered' it at a restaurant, etc.  Now tacos?  That's entirely different!  I've made tacos in a few different versions right here at home, and ordered them in Texas as well as other states for sure.  So my vote would be obvious!

I created this little taco pick-me-up with the darling Sale-A-Bration stamp set ... Tasty Trucks!  I armed myself with an Aqua Painter, a few ink pads, and the SC633 Sketch  from Splitcoaststampers.  

Sale-A-Bration continues thru March 31, and there now a few new SAB choices tossed into the already fun mix of stamps and accessories!  Just click here to see those newly-added options!  And check the right column to download the original SAB catalog ... all items in both SAB's are 'live' now.  There's no limit on how many items you can earn, 1 free choice per each $50 product purchased.  Woooohooooo!

I'm so glad you stopped by today.  Hope you found a bit of inspiration during your visit.  

Thank you bunches for shopping in my SU Store!  Please let me know if I can be of help with questions, hopes, or just yada yada!

Got Smiles to Send?

Hi everyone!  Today I'm sharing a creation that's actually a mix from the new Occasions Catalog with one of the free items you can choose from the Sale-A-Bration event.  Remember, Sale-A-Bration is in effect only until March 31!

I spotted the PPA284 sketch challenge on the last night before it ended ... but finished this project even though it was too late to be submitted for the challenge itself.  Hey ... no reason there to stop the creative enjoyment!  

The circle of designer paper is from the Sale-A-Brations Wildflower Fields DSP collection (p. 12 SAB).  The mix of colors is lovely, and my color palette for the card was chosen from this paper.  Easy decisions .... gotta love'em!

The blossom was cut with the Botanical Builder Framelits dies, (Occasions p. 26).  This time I cut the blossom from Whisper White c/s, and added Lost Lagoon ink to the center and outer edges with a Sponge Dauber.  There's a bitty flower die cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and a Rhinestone Jewel to finish off the center of the blossom.  The leaf was stamped with its coordinating stamp from the Botanical Blooms set (Occasions p. 27) ... which I swear is going to be a long-time favorite here for my personal stamping!

Check out this video featuring the entire bundle of products featuring the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies, Botanical Blooms stamp set, and the beautiful Botanical Gardens DSP!  

Pssst!  The complete bundle comes at a 15% savings over single pricing, and ... it qualifies you for a free Sale-A-Bration item all at the same time!  I've included it in the product list below.  

Questions?  Please feel most welcome to contact me!  

Is your 'wish list' adding up to a little more than you thought?  Purchase the starter kit for $99 ... but get $155 product of your choice plus free shipping!

So Sweet!

You're So Sweet!

This is just a one-third of the cute, simple images and sentiments in the 'Honeycomb Happiness' Sale-A-Bration stamp set ...

As soon as I spotted this week's sketch, SC576, at Splitcoaststampers, I reached for this set.  Don't you love it when something instantly inspires so easily?

The darling confetti paper is part of the Birthday Bouquet collection, along with the yummy-fun Honeycomb Embellishments, both on page 9 in the Occasions catalog.    

Once I had edged the image layer with the new Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing folder, I just couldn't resist adding Dazzling Diamonds!   Two-way Glue is just right for this application ... quick to dry, easy to just streak it around or put it right where you want it.     

Here's to a delightful, creative weekend m'friends!  I'll be sharing stamping fun with friends and friends I haven't met yet ... I consider that a blessing.  Please contact me with your stamping needs.  It's a privilege to be your Stampin' Up! demonstrator!

Is Elvis in the House?

Don't you love it when there are new goodies in your stampin' zone?   
Today's project combines of one of the new items from the Occasions catalog plus a couple of  sentiment stamps from one of the free Sale-A-Bration items.

Lots of new goodies on this one, beginning with the wonderful Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.  Confession:  I can hardly stop reaching for this jam-packed die set!  There's a beautiful stamp set to coordinate with the dies (Botanical Blooms - page 27 Occ.), and it's all offered as a bundle for 15% savings as well.  

But today, I've simply used 3 of the dies to create the blossom.  Ta-dah!  Such easy dimension due to the special flower die I've used from the set.   Here's a closer look:
I did add a little circle punched from Gold Glimmer Paper for the flower center ... lots of irresistible sparkle.  See?  This is the reason you've been saving all those little left-over glimmer paper pieces!  Perhaps we're related?  ... 

Now the 'Thank You' .... clean, easy-to-read font ... a nice size to partner with something that requires a bit of space, such as my blossom.  It's from the free Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Perfect Pairings.  It's partner for the 'pairing' is the 'Kindly' stamp I've used inside the card.  These are 2 separate stamps ... I just stamped them close together for the inside.  The 'Misti' positioning tool made this process just as easy as can be.  

Read the card aloud ... It sort of brings Elvis Presley to mind, doesn't it?  Okay ... So it doesn't say,  "Very much" ... but it's pretty close!   ;)

Thank you kindly for having stopped by today!  If you have questions, please feel welcome to contact me.  It's my hope and my privilege to be your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
