The Last RemARKable Month of Sale-a-bration

 

There are 21 day left in Sale-a-bration:  21 glorious days when every $50 you spend earns you FREE exclusive products.  The RemARKables are sharing SAB inspiration this month:

Maui Stamper Washi Easter Eggs Happy Easter Chick

There’s a LOT going on here – and I love that it all coordinates!  Stampin’ Up! is the Coordination Super Hero.

  • Stamps:  Botanicals for You (SAB), Honeycomb Happiness (SAB), Easter Lamb
  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder
  • Accessories:  Botanical Gardens DSP, Big Shot Fry Box Bigz L, Ovals Framelits and Zig Zag TIEF, Fringe Scissors, Botanical Gardens Washi Tape, Metallics Glitter Tape (SAB), Wink of Stella brush, Paper Snips, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Maui Stamper Washi Easter Eggs Happy Easter Chick

This is a face only a mother could love.  There’s a HEAP of Stella (none of that Winkin’ business here) and up close it looks as though this chick did a face plant out at Keawakapu Beach.  In real life, it’s just super-sparkly.

I trimmed the front of the Fry Box to within 1/8″ of the side and bottom tabs, then turned them under and attached the box to the card front with dimensionals to create a true 3-D basket.

Maui Stamper Washi Easter Eggs Happy Easter Chick

I had a blast with these eggs.  Arrange Washi on card stock and then use the Oval Framelits collection to give you a perfect oval egg.  That’s silver Metallic Glitter Tape – no adhesive required!

Maui Stamper Just for You Sale-a-bration 2016

  • Stamps:  Botanicals for You
  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Island Indigo
  • Accessories:  2015-2017 In Color Designer Paper Stack, Rhinestone Jewels, Stampin’ Dimensionals

This is softer and simpler, and will suit any occasion.  I like to have a stash of cards like this – I can add a sentiment inside and have a birthday, thank you, or Easter card as quickly as you can open an ink pad.

Maui Stamper Just for You Sale-a-bration 2016

Rhinestone jewels are featured on the Weekly Deals through Monday.  I consider myself “out” of Rhinestone jewels when I’m down to 3 (unopened) packages.  What’s your number?

Hello My Friend

Never in a million years would I have picked the Hello stamp set from Sale-a-bration to be so versatile…but I’m here to tell you that it is.

Maui Stamper Hello My Friend

  • Stamps:  Hello (Sale-a-bration 2016)
  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, So Saffron, Old Olive
  • Accessories:  Wildflower Fields DSP, Botanical Garden Jewels, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Banner punch

This is based rather generously on THIS card by Brian King.   It’s a very simple concept that works especially well with the big bold HELLO and the accessory phrases that come with this Sale-a-bration set (I don’t need to mention that you can’t buy this set, you can only earn it as a free gift when you spend $50 before March 31st, do I?)

Maui Stamper Hello My Friend

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do when I ordered these Botanical Garden Jewels, but I knew I needed to have them.  I think they’re the perfect touch, don’t you?

Maui Stamper Hello Birthday Girl

Trust me, you could make a heap of these in no time at all and have a fabulous stash ready for any occasion.  Or just ready for all of your girlfriends’ birthdays.  Which is about the same thing.

I thought not.  Shop HERE.

 

 

 

Blushing Flowering Fields

I think I am officially obsessed with the Flowering Fields stamp set available through Sale-a-bration.  I’ve done a number of variations on the same theme – the most recent one is in Blushing Bride:

Maui Stamper Flowering Fields in Blushing Bride

  • Stamps:  Flowering Fields, Timeless Texture, Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Color Palette:  Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Rose Red, Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Pear Pizazz
  • Accessories:  Linen Thread, Stampin’ Write Markers, Uniball White Gel Pen, Wink of Stella

I love coloring in these images with my Stampin’ Write markers.  Sometimes I use the fat, brush end, and sometimes it’s the pointy writing end, but either way it’s something I find relaxing.

Maui Stamper Flowering Fields in Blushing Bride

I mix and match the backgrounds from Timeless Treasures – it’s one of those sets I know I’ll reach for again and again.  And speaking of reaching for something, my Wink of Stella brush is always on my craft table these days.  I’m thinking of getting one for my bathroom too – don’t you think a little {wink} would be just the thing for those too-early-Monday-mornings?

Maui Stamper Flowering Fields in Blushing Bride

Here’s how I start…the backgrounds are stamped off and I do 3 of each one.  My tiles are 1 3/8″ x 1 1/8″ and I have to stamp twice, but I’ve found it easy to line up the images by eye.

Maui Stamper Flowering Fields in Blushing Bride

Once I have a set of images I like, I move them around until I find a sequence that pleases me.  The rest is just Fast Fuse (and a bow with the Linen Thread, but I’ve done hundreds if not thousands of those and it’s No.Big.Deal.)

Here’s the original.  Keep your eye out – there are more to come!
