Retiring Products Annual Catalogue 2020, Stampin' Up!, SU, Band Together, Better Together Dies, Background Technique, Blending Brushes, Ink blending on Embossing Folders

The Band Together stamp set and coordinating Detailed Band Dies featured in these cards are retiring. The intricate bands are lovely and you have a nice variety of sentiments to use on the outside and inside of cards.

To create the above card I used my blending brushes with some Mango Melody, Magenta Madness and Gorgeous Grape inks on Basic White cardstock. Then I embossed it with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder (now retired). The band across creates such an intricate frame.

This next card has been embossed first and then I took my Rococo Rose ink pad direct to the Pearlescent paper. The flowers were coloured in using sponge daubers – a simple and quick way to add colour to your images.

Ten Day Countdown to End of Sale-A-Bration – Day 6

We’re continuing our fun today with the our Countdown to the end of Sale-A-Bration. The Corner Bouquet stamp set is one that could be easily overlooked as by just looking at the cover, it doesn’t look that interesting. However, there are so many beautiful techniques that can be achieved with this set.

Simple, yet elegant this card makes use of 3 Sale-A-Bration items – including the Heal your Heart stamp Set and Flower & Field DSP. Adding a few layers with some simple stamping can create quick and beautiful cards.

Here’s another card with a simple layout which can be duplicated. Simple stamping makes mass production of cards a breeze. We all need so many thank you cards don’t we?

This sentiment is so apt for the times we are in at this moment. Some direct to stamp technique with our Stampin’ Write Markers make creating multi coloured images really easy. You can see me make all these cards by clicking below to watch the video.

Ten Day Countdown to End of Sale-A-Bration – Day 9

I love a card sketch and for today’s Sale-A-Bration countdown I have got 1 card sketch presented 4 ways. Simple and effective, a card sketch can get your creativity flowing and give you many options in the way you interpret it.

The Sale-A-Bration freebie Flower and Field Designer Series Paper provided my colour palette for my cards. Stampin’ Up! provides a useful tool at the back of the paper packs and in the catalogues. In it, you are given the colours that coordinate with the DSP (Designer Series Paper). Now, you don’t have to stick with it, but it sure makes it easy for creating.

My sketch was flipped horizontally and vertically giving 4 different cards.

The stamped images and sentiments are from the Touch of Ink stamp set. You can get this set free with any order of $180.

Being a two-step stamp set, this is a great set to create quick coloured images. Sentiments to complement many occasions make this a handy set to have in your stash.

The DSP has a lovely range of colours from neutrals and subtles to brights. This next card has a fun feel to it and is a great way of saying a cheerful ‘hello’.

Sale-A-Bration ends 28th February – only 9 days away. It’s the ideal time to get items on your Wish List and stock up on essentials such as adhesives and cardstock because you are going to get free items with it.


Please use Host Code for all orders under $250. If your order is over $250 then don’t use the Host Code as you will get your own Stampin’ Rewards.

If your order exceeds $169 then I would recommend you consider our Starter Kit which gives you your choice of $235 worth of products for only $169 with free shipping and an ongoing 20-25% discount.

New at SU Blog Hop – Darling Donkeys Fancy Fold

Our New at SU Blog Hop this month brings you projects featuring all our Sale-A-Bration products. There is a lovely array of beautiful products on offer – and all for free! Any $90 order placed can choose a free product until the 28th of February.

New at SU Blog Hop, Header

I’ve chosen a firm favourite and I think a front runner – the Darling Donkeys stamp set to create a simple fancy fold. The Flower & Field Designer Series Paper which I’ve used is another Sale-A-Bration product.

I used Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends to colour in the donkey. I added some faint sponging in Pool Party as a sky and a bit of Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends for some ground to stand on.

This card opens up to reveal a die cut sentiment which I coloured with So Saffron and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends.

If you haven’t got this cute donkey you may like to add it on your next order as your free set. Just remember, it’s only available until the 28th of February.

Thank you for visiting me today and I hope you come back very soon for lots more inspiration. Please click on the Next Blog button to see the talented Lisa Mackey’s project.

Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop – Garden Wishes

Hello and welcome to our Ink. Stamp. Share monthly blog hop. Our theme this month is Spring/Summer Sale-A-Bration and I chose the Garden Wishes stamp set for a floral take on this theme.

I wanted to show a softer card using the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper. For the design of this card, I began by choosing my colour palette. I started off by picking Misty Moonlight which was a colour in the DSP. I do this quite often as it gives me a starting point to pick my coordinating colours. Plus with our amazing colour coordinated products it’s just easy to match cardstock and embellishments.

I watercoloured a panel of Shimmery White Cardstock with Pool Party and Misty Moonlight as a backdrop for the dandelion. Watercolouring is a great technique for achieving a soft look to your projects. Then I added some extra leaves die cut from Soft Sea Foam cardstock. Some extra colour was added with Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends. The edges of the flower and leaves were sponged with Soft Suede giving some warmth to the stark white edges.

Some Bumblebee Gingham Trim ties in with the dandelion and I’ve added a cute Ladybug Trinket to embellish the card. Isn’t it cute?

I hope my project inspires you to use your Designer Series Paper with alternate colour palettes and have fun creating! Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you.
