New Sale-a-Bration Rewards available

Check out my card which features a few of the free Sale-a-Bration rewards, including 2 new items that are available as a FREE rewards - Painted Seasons is free with a $120 order and All Adorned is free with a $60 order.  Both are only available until the end of March, so don't delay.  My card also features one of the sentiments from the Home to Roost stamp set - also free with a $60 order during Sale-a-Bration.


I think I've found my all time favourite Designer Series Paper!  The fact that it includes Poppy Parade as one of the colours just adds to the reason it is a favourite!  

My card is a window card with the inner part of the card "hanging loose".  


Instructions

  1. Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Early Espresso card stock to make card base.
  2. Fold a 4" x 10 1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock for inner card.
  3. Adhere a piece of Multi-Purpose Adhesive sheet to the back of a  4" x 2" piece of Early Espresso card stock.  Cut out the rectangle using the 1 7/16" x 3 3/8" Stitched Rectangle and your Big Shot.
  4. Adhere 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper to front of card base using Snail.
  5. Adhere the cut out rectangle to the card base by peeling off the back of the Multi-Purpose Adhesive sheet.
  6. Cut out the inside of the Early Espresso rectangle by using the 2 3/4" x 1 7/16" rectangle.  TIP: you may need to run this through your Big Shot 6-7 times as you are going through 3 layers of paper.
  7. Stamp the front of the inner Whisper White Card using Grapefruit Grove and Poppy Parade for the flowers and Call me Clover for the leaves.  Make sure the images are visible in the opening of the card base.
  8. Stamp the inside of the card with a flower, leaf and a sentiment. (NOTE: the sentiment is from another new reward available for free with a $60 order - All Adorned)
  9. Stamp a sentiment and leaves on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and punch out using the 1 3/4" circle punch.
  10. Punch a circle out of Early Espresso card stock using the 2" circle punch.
  11. Adhere the small circle to the larger circle and adhere to the right and side of the opening.
  12. Tie a piece of Nature's Twine around the top of the card to hold the inner card in place.

Life Is Grand

Today I'm featuring the Life Is Grand stampset and three ways to use it for the beginner stamper, the casual stamper and the avid stamper.



As a beginner stamper, you are new to stamping or have never tried stamping.  You don't own stamping supplies but may be somewhat crafty and enjoy trying new things.  Does this describe you?

Here's a card I made which a typical "new" stamper could easily do with a stampset, ink and paper. The Designer Series Paper is optional here but can be used to give your card a pop of colour.


Instructions

  1. Score Whisper White Thick card stock (5 1/2" x 11") in half to make card base.
  2. Cut piece of Floral Romance Designer Series Paper Vellum (4" x 5 1/4").  Stamp sentiment in Fresh Fig ink.
  3. Adhere to card base using a Glue Dot in each corner.
As a "casual" stamper you own some supplies, stamp around once a month, like stamping but also leave time for other crafts or hobbies.  You have a collection of some stamps, some inks and some paper, maybe even some punches, but most likely do not have a Big Shot die cutting machine due to the investment required. You like to come to classes and parties and always love a sale or promotion!  Does this describe you?

Here's a card I designed for the casual stamper:

Instructions

  1. Score Whisper White Thick card stock (5 1/2" x 11") in half to make card base.
  2. Cut piece of Floral Romance Designer Series Paper Vellum (3 3/4" x 5").  Stamp sentiment in Fresh Fig ink.
  3. Adhere to Fresh Fig cardstock (4" x 5 1/4") using Glue Dots in each corner
  4. Adhere a piece of Powder Pink ribbon around back of card front using Snail.  Cut a small piece of ribbon and tie around the ribbon around card front.
  5. Adhere to card base using Snail.
  6. Adhere a Basic Adhesive-backed sequin above the "i" and add a rhinestone.
Now for the "avid stamper". You love stamping more than just about any other activity! It is your primary hobby, artistic medium  and fun time passion. You love to talk about it, share it and stamp as much as possible. Avid stampers frequently stamp every day and are constantly eager to see and hear all the latest news about new products or techniques. You have moved from owning a few supplies to collecting everything you like! You have all the tools and know how to use them and aren't afraid to try new things.  This definitely describes me!  How about you?

Here's a card I designed for an avid stamper:

Instructions

  1. Score Whisper White Thick card stock (5 1/2" x 11") in half to make card base.
  2. Cut a piece of Fresh Fig cardstock (4" x 5 1/4") and emboss with Lace Embossing Folder
  3. Stamp the sentiment on a piece of Floral Romance vellum using Fresh Fig ink.
  4. Adhere to a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock of the same size using Glue Dots in the corners.
  5. Cut out using Stitched Rectangle Framelits - use 2 framelits - one to fit around the sentiment and the other larger.  When cut out you will have a frame.
  6. Adhere to embossing Fresh Fig cardstock using Snail for the stamped piece and Glue Dots in the corners for the frame.
  7. Adhere a piece of Powder Pink ribbon around back of card front using Snail.  Cut a small piece of ribbon and tie onto piece around card front.
  8. Adhere to card base using Snail.
  9. Adhere a Basic Adhesive-backed sequin above the "i" and add a rhinestone.
  10. Adhere a Basic Adhesive-backed sequin and a rhinestone on each for the corners of the frame.

Everything I used on this card is available in my Online Store.  You can check out the list of supplies below.

When you place a $50 order (before shipping and taxes) using the Host Code BET3BVQX, I'll send you four cards and instructions by mail as a thank you.  If your order is over $200, please do not use the Hostess Code as you'll qualify for Stampin' Rewards, but I'll still send you the 4 free cards!
