Easter Message for this Sunday

Happy Easter to You!

I wanted to share a special stamp set I used during my Easter Blessings Stamp Camp.  Easter Message is such a beautiful set and really so elegant. It’s hard to see that I actually gold embossed the palm leaves, but it would be just as beautiful stamping with an ink color as well.

Easter Message Stampin' Up!A closer view shows you more detail of how I hand sewed the Linen Thread duplicating the X mark that was already on the image. I made two loops on each side to achieve this look.  I also stamped a separate cloak and using a Blender Pen colored in the Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink and then cut it out and raised it up with Dimensionals.  I was pleased with the way it turned out, simple but elegant.

Easter Message Stampin' Up!Also in this stamp set is a beautiful Easter lily. I loved using the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock along with the Rich Razzleberry with the touch of So Saffron and Blushing Bride in the lily, I felt these colors worked great together.

Easter Message Stampin' Up!I also used the Petal Burst Embossing Folder to give bold texture and a light addition with the Linen Thread.  Finished if off with Gold Heat Embossing with the Easter sentiment.

Easter Message Stampin' Up!Easter Message is another retiring stamp set from the Occasions 2017 catalog.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter day, He is Risen indeed, Alleluia!

 

Basket Bunch Easter

Happy Easter Weekend!

     Basket Bunch (143186) is a fun, whimsical stamp set that can be bundled with the Basket Builder Framelits. The first Easter stamp set that Stampin’ Up! has also offered a die cut for. The Basket Builder Framelits (143228) offers a few more surprises of die cuts as shown below in the positive and negative images.  (TIP: Take the time to cut out all your framelits so you can make a guide like this one so you can utilize your die cuts to the fullest)

You are able to die cut the patterns of Easter eggs from the die cuts as seen in a close up of this card.  Can you find the golden egg?

Here is a card that I created for my monthly card class that used the basket of flowers for a card that could easily be used for a birthday card, Mother’s Day card or Easter card by changing out the sentiment with another stamp set.

Basket BunchThe next card I offered in my Easter Blessings Stamp Camp. I challenged myself to use all the images without using the die cuts to make a Easter sampler card of all the fun, whimsical Easter images.  Using a little bit of the Sale-A-Bration Glimmer  6 x 6 paper.  Love how the sun hit the glimmer paper when I look the picture outside.

Hate that this Basket Bunch Stamp Set and Framelit set are retiring after a short debut during the Occasions Catalog, so don’t miss out, if you love it…get it!  Thank you for allowing me to share my Basket Bunch cards with you.

Happy Easter!

Sale-A-Brating the Occasions Catalog

IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE Sale-A-Bration and our 2017 Occasions Catalog!

 

If you’d like to see what’s inside these amazing catalogs, click on the catalog image.

Sale-A-Bration:

Is the biggest promotion of the year and it’s a great time to BUY and BE a Stampin’ Up! Hostess.  Here is how it works:

  • For every $50 in merchandise you buy from January 4- March 31, 2017, you will earn a free Sale-A-Bration Product.  With a brochure full, I am sure you have chosen your favorites.  And unlike any year I’ve experienced, the product coordinates back to to product in the Occasions 2017 catalog.

For example, the Lift Me Up Bundle on page 10 of the Occasions catalog works perfectly with the Carried Away Designer Series Paper (143608) on page 7 of the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. And with the bundle pricing, you will earn the paper for FREE!

The Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper follows the trend of adult coloring books, with 4 sheets of each design you won’t mind cutting and piecing to create one of kind cards, scrapbook pages and 3D projects. Pair with our new Watercolor Pencils (141709) Occasions Catalog pg 24 and a pack of Blender Pens (102845 in AC pg. 180) or Aqua Painters (103954 in AC pg. 180) , and you’ve got the perfect dose of color therapy! Ahhhh….

 

  • As a Hostess, when your total party sales reach $250, you earn $25 more in hostess rewards.  So that means you earn $50 in hostess rewards at a $250 party.
    • What if you place an individual order for $250, do you get the same Sampin’ Rewards as if you were hosting a party?  YES!! + 5 choices of Sale-A-Bration products.  BUT.… have you considered this:
    • When you purchase a Standard Starter Kit for $99, you will choose up to $125 worth of product and during Sale-A-Bration, you will have a choice of TWO FREE STAMP SETS that’s an added value of up to $104. You then can place your own orders, and get up to a 25% discount on future orders and earn Sale-A-Bration product (until March 31, 2017) and hostess rewards on your own personal orders.  No risk guarantee.  You will also join my community of SUthern INKspressions Demonstrators.

  • As a Hostess, when your total party sales reach $450, you earn $25 more in Stampin’ Rewards, which means you earn $88 in Stampin’ Rewards + a choice of 1 item at 50% off*. *Stampin’ Rewards cannot be used towards a 50% item.
