We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop-Kicking off Sale-A-Bration!

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit!

Are you ready to SALE-a-brate? You read that correctly! Stampin’ Up! has brought back my favorite time of the year for a second time!!! Qualifying purchases of $50 or $100 increments earns you FREE products.

Yep it’s that simple… order a new supplies for holiday cards and poof the Stampin’ Up! Santa brings you FREE products. Order back to school supplies and maybe a welcome back gift for a special teacher and bam, you move to the head of the economics class with great return on investment (yes that is the FREE product).

Keep reading to see how I made the most of my demonstrator only (love all the perks!) pre-order of the items found in the NEW Sale-a-bration catalog.

Raise your hand if you remember the 70’s. This “where are my sunglasses” Be Dazzling 6×6 speciality paper from the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) catalog is like looking into a disco ball.

My sample card is a more like a triple whammy of newness. 1. The new 21-2023 In Color Soft Succulent is my base and the circle stamp ink color. 2. That “circle” image is from the Textures & Frames Stamp set on page 12 of the SAB catalog that I earned for FREE and last but not least 3. The Be Dazzling paper as previously mentioned.

Watch for my post in August that will blow your mind with what I do with this paper!

Bonus whammy of newness 4. Did you see that little peek of ribbon at the top? That is the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon found on page 37 of the fall Mini Catalog. Wait… did I mention I colored it to match my Mint Macaroon layer? Yes, you can color this ribbon with your Stampin’ Blends.

Queue the heavenly music.

Let’s a take a quick moment to talk about the card itself.

It is a pocket card made by cutting a full sheet on the short side at 4 1/4, folding it in half and using Tear Tape along the long side to create the pocket and punch a piece out of the top to be able to grab the message card-I used the Tailored Tag.

Inside the pocket the card dimensions are 3 1/2 x 5 1/4. Add a coordinating layer for message writing and any sentiments. For this pocket card I stamped off my ink so the images would not interfer with the message. The colors in the card are Soft Succulent, Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss.

I loved the message card part of this card so much that I see many more versions of this card with this stamp and design combo … in all sorts of shapes (and colors too) thanks to the stamp design.

If you are really digging the pocket style card stay tunned to see the one I made with the Pretty as a Peach bundle…summer isn’t over yet (even if we are all drooling over all the new holiday products)

Start earning your FREE Sale-a-bration items August 3rd but don’t wait they are only available in limited quantites until September 30th!

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop-Everything Masculine

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit!

When I think of the men in my life I think of Simple Stamping. Neither my father or husband appreciate glitter (can’t imagine why??!!) or even bling. But what any guy will appreciate is being told how much they are appreciated.

This little dancing goat just makes me happy and I am sure it would bring a smile to anyone’s face. The card itself is super simple to make with the Stamp-a-ratus because you only set it up once. Cut a piece of Basic White THICK cardstock since there will be no layers and lay on the Stamp-a-ratus. Line up your image on the cardstock and lay the stamping plate on the stamps to pick them up.

I used the edge of my Old Olive ink pad for the grass and then the Tuxedo Black Momento Ink for the image. TECHNIQUE: to get the shaded sky behind the goat use the masking technique. Stamp the goat image on a post-it note then fussy cut the image. Lay the post-it note over the stamped image on the card. Use the new Blender Brushes and Balmy Blue ink starting at the center of the image and working outward to create the ombre effect in color.

To color the Goat I used the light Stampin’ Blends markers in Flirty Flamingo, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Smokey Slate and the color lifter. Add a bit extra Smokey Slate to the outside to get a shadow line.

The sentiment is from a retired set but any Father’s Day wishing one will do!

Birthday, Handmade Cards, Masculine Cards

Happy Birthday You Old Goat!

Masculine cards galore were happening today at my house, this special one went to my neighbor who turned 65 today! You know that 65 is the new 50 right?

Knowing guys do NOT like glitter (generally speaking) this is a simple stamping card on Basic White THICK. My stamp-a-ratus makes it a snap to set up straight images from the Way to Goat set and make multiple cards for future use.

The Goat is colored with Stampin’ Blends of course because I no longer color with anything else! Make sure you are using a pigment ink stamp such as Tuxedo Black Momento so the image does not bleed when you color it.

I really love the minimalist look that is happening on this card but if you want to check out a more stepped up version featuring the same set up but more back ground color stay tuned for my card on June 1st for the We BEE Stampin’ Blog Hop.

You Make the World a Better Place

I love going back to my retired stamps and paper for cards for my immediate family. It gives me a chance to make a really personal card just for them at just this moment. This card uses the Beautiful World stamp and coordinating speciality paper.

As I said before guys don’t generally like glitter, and the men in my family are NO exception. Foil is a different story entirely! No other embellishments needed and don’t forget to take your die cuts from the foil accent layer to get the most use out of these speciality papers.
