New Sale-A-Bration Items!

If Sale-A-Bration is not exciting enough, Stampin' Up! is releasing 3 brand-new Sale-A-Bration offerings tomorrow, February 21.  

As a demonstrator, I was able to get these items early and I have had fun creating with them!  So, stay tuned for some fun new samples.  

You can earn one of these items for every $50 order (before shipping and tax) you place until March 31.  You can shop online 24/7 in my online store, or email your order to me at stampinnancy@gmail.com.  

The Glimmer Paper Stack is oh-so-sparkly and I know it will be very popular!  I suggest choosing that first if you absolutely have to have it!

Happy Stamping,

RemARKably Creative Blog Tour: Oh So Succulent

Welcome to another RemARKably Creative Blog Tour!  Succulent plants are all the rage right now, and Stampin' Up! is on trend with our Oh So Succulent Bundle (#145184, $48.50).

I have to be brutally honest -- I was not a fan of this bundle when I first saw it.  :-)  But, once I saw what other stampers were doing with this set, I knew I had to have it.  And, I am so glad I have this in my stamping room now.  Here are the projects I made for us this month:

My first project is a card that features the beautiful Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (142778, $11.00).  
I only bought one package of this designer series paper, and I can tell you that I will be buying more!  The colors and designs are just beautiful.  

The only stamping for this card is the sentiment inside and the succulents on the corner of the envelope.  I used Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron ink.  This card was part of my Just Cards Class this month.  The die cut on the front of the card is included in our Window Box Thinlits Dies (142762, $38.00).  

Speaking of the Window Box Thinlits dies, here is my second project:

This is one of the projects we made in Stamp Club this month. I included a battery-operated candle in the project to make a cute favor that is perfect for a wedding, anniversary party, or shower. Once again, we used Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron as our color scheme.  (REMINDER - Mint Macaron is one of the 2015-2017 In Colors, so it will be retiring.  Make sure you stock up on plenty of card stock and the ink refill before it is gone!  The new Annual Catalog will launch on June 1, but the retiring In Colors usually sell out before then.  So, get it while you can!)

I used the Succulent Framelits Dies to cut 2 large, 2 medium, and 2 small "hen and chick" succulent flowers.  We sponged each with Mint Macaron ink to give it dimension, and then used a bone folder to curl the petals ever so slightly.  The flower was assembled with Stampin' Dimensionals, and we staggered each layer of petals.  The center of the plant features a metal rimmed pearl, and we set the flower on top of a bow made with our Whisper White Organza Ribbon.  

I cannot wait to make more paper succulents with the Oh So Succulent Bundle!  Now, it is time to see what Melissa has created for us this month.  Just click here, or on the icon below.  

Happy Stamping,

Stampin' Up!'s "Lift Me Up Bundle" Is So Much Fun!

One of my new favorites in the Occasions Catalog is the "Lift Me Up Bundle."  This bundle is available in both Wood-Mount (#144711, $53.00) and Clear-Mount (#144712, $45.75).

The bundle includes the Lift Me Up stamp set and the coordinating thinlits, Up & Away.  You save 10% when you buy these two products as a bundle -- Yay!  I have been busy playing with this bundle this week, and I am excited to show you what I have made. 

I love detailed thinlits, and this idea popped in my head as soon as I saw this set.  

The hot air balloon is easy to cut out, and our die brush makes it easy-peasy to push out all of those little pieces of paper.  Each 3-D balloon was made with 4 cut outs.  Simply fold in half lengthwise, then glue together one at a time.  I used Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

I stamped the medium and small balloons with Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macarron, and Peekaboo Peach ink and cut them out using the framelits in this bundle.  The cute clouds were cut out of Whisper White thick cardstock.  I pulled this color scheme from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper, one of the items you can earn during Sale-A-Bration. 

You can get this beautiful Designer Series Paper for FREE with an order of $50 (before shipping and tax).  I have plenty of Sale-A-Bration brochures -- let me know if you would like one!

I used Tombow Multipurpose Glue to attach strips of Designer Series Paper to the outside and inside of a wooden hoop (the inside of an embroidery hoop).  Brand-new 1/8" Whisper White Grosgrain ribbon, part of the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack, was used to make the hanger for the mobile.  

The balloons and clouds look like they are floating because I used invisible thread I got from a sewing store.  I staggered the balloons and clouds, and used glue dots and Fast Fuse to attach the clouds and stamped balloons onto the invisible thread.  

I loved making the 3-D Balloons, and I thought 3 of them together would make a great addition to a gift bag.  What do you think?

This plain, white gift bag went from "boring to soaring" (pun intended!) with the addition of some card stock, Carried Away Designer Series Paper, and a Lace Doily.  The "celebrate" image is from the Happy Celebrations Photopolymer Stamp Set (#143012, $35.00).  You can find this set in the Occasions Catalog, too.  

My final project today is a greeting card.  I used the detailed thinlit to cut a balloon-shaped hole out of the card front so I could push a balloon through the hole and attach it to the inside of the card.  

Are you wondering how I got the different colors on this balloon? It is easy-peasy with the thinlits!  There are several dies that cut the bands that you attach to the back of the balloon.  Wow -- you can decide on any color scheme you'd like!  

I hope you like these projects!  I cannot wait to show you more ideas next week.  If you would like to receive an Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, just send your name and address to me at stampinnancy@gmail.com.  I will be happy to send them to you.  

Happy Stamping,
