Just popping in today with a quick post. I’m sharing one of the cards we’ll be making at Thursday’s Simply Beautiful Card Class. It uses the same stamp set I used yesterday but in a totally different way. Yesterday I colored a bit with the Blends and today I created a monochromatic card in Berry Burst.
The stamp set is called Heartfelt Blooms and you can receive it FREE during Sale-A-Bration! That’s right, FREE! With every $50 you purchase you get to choose a Free product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.
So what are your thoughts about the look of this image? Do you like the photographic look? I’m thinking it’s really cool. It’s what Stampin’ Up! is calling a Distinctive stamp. It’s a stamp that lays down ink at different opacities giving the image more depth….so it looks like a photographic finish. What I’m loving is that it looks beautiful stamped in any color and when you stamp it in smoky slate it looks great with added color.
Would you like to receive this card as happy mail? If the answer is yes leave a comment. I’m picking someone from the comments each day to receive the posted card. So stop back often.

Don’t you just smile from ear to ear when you finish making a card and think…Yes! I love it! And when that happens can you part with the card? Be honest! I know it’s not easy but because I’m trying to send more cards this year I’m going to send this card out to some lucky person that comments on my post today. I’m thinking maybe I should start doing that every day. What do you think…does that sound like a fun idea?
This was actually my first play with two amazing products in the Sale-A-Bration catalog and I created it for a tutorial co-op I belong to. You can get the Amazing You stamp set Free with a $50 purchase and the and the coordinating Celebrate You Thinlits Dies Free with a $100 purchase. They work great together or choose your favorite. Just remember if you want them both, when your order hits $150 you also get Stampin’ Rewards! Now that’s a lot of free stuff!!
To see all the FREE Sale-A-Bration items you can choose from, including the newest ones that were just released yesterday click here. But if you need copies of our catalogs on hand to fuel your creativity click here and I’ll make sure to drop them in the mail to you.
- Stamping your own background paper is easy, fun and keeps you from having to search for the perfect coordinating paper. Here I stamped the flower image randomly on the whisper white layer with Smokey Slate ink.
- Black and white always looks great with a pop of color and here I used Bermuda Bay…my favorite color. The Stampin’ Blends give you such vibrant color. I like to always start light and add layers of color until I like what I see.
- It’s easy to give your flowers dimension. Stamp and color two flowers, cut the center from one and pop it up with dimensionals on the stamped flower. More dimension is added on the card by popping up the die cut ‘you’.
- And I almost forgot…check out the shimmer ribbon. It’s one of three ribbons in a pack you can get FREE during Sale-A-Bration!

You’re a paper crafter! You want to give a few handmade cards for Valentine’s Day but you just haven’t gotten around to making them yet! Does that sound familiar? Well today I want to share a quick and simple card you can whip up later today and give to a few special people tomorrow.
I used the Sure Do Love You stamp set from the Occasions catalog and the beautiful Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. And even though the paper is gorgeous with all the gold foil it’s still a card you can give to your hubby.
The great thing about this card is that not only is it a quick card to put together but you could use any heart dies or punches you may have on hand. Pair the 3 hearts with a sweet sentiment of love and voila…you are ready to wish someone a happy Valentine’s Day.
Take a look at the paper one more time! If it’s not in your stash you’ll want to order it for sure. You’ll find lots of uses for different occasions. The only problem will be actually cutting it. With the colorful design and awesome gold foil you will be tempted to save it forever! 🙂
