CASEing the Sale-A-Bration Brochure

 

Welcome to the first Creative Card-iology Blog Hop of 2023 - we are so glad you've joined us!  You can hop along with us by clicking on the links to my teammates’ blogs toward the bottom of this post.  We always appreciate your feedback, so please let us know you've stopped by and leave a comment.

Our theme this month is anything Sale-a-bration.  I love Sale-a-bration so much – I mean who doesn’t love FREE stamping products!  I chose the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper (page 6-7 in the Sale-a-bration Brochure) for my project, which is a Free with $50 item and coordinates with the Dainty Delight Bundle in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.  It works out perfectly to order the Dainty Delight Bundle for $54.50 USD and then choose the Dainty Flowers DSP as your free Sale-a-bration item – just saying!




I loved the card pictured at the left side of page 7 in the SAB brochure, and I cased (copied and selectively edited) the design for my project.

Here are the steps I followed to make this card:

Cutting Measurements:

Basic White Thick Cardstock – 6 1/4” x 6 1/2” (score and fold at 3 1/4”) and a small piece for stamped sentiment

Starry Sky Cardstock (or Starry Sky patterned paper from DSP) – 3” x 6”

Dainty Flowers DSP (Oval Frame and Floral Panel pattern) – Cut center panels 2 3/16” x 5 7/8”

Starry Sky Metallic Woven Ribbon – approximately 7”-8”


I first cut the oval frames from either side of the center floral panels on the patterned paper and then trimmed one to the measurement listed above.
  I fussy cut the other as pictured below - the Paper Snips scissors are the best!

I used the Twigs and Sprigs embossing folder to add texture to my Starry Sky layer, but you could skip the embossing and use the Starry Sky pattern from the Dainty Flowers DSP collection instead.  This layer was then adhered to my card front.

The full floral panel was then adhered to the left side of my embossed Starry Sky layer with the length of ribbon positioned at the bottom of this panel so that it would wrap underneath and around and tie a bow at the right side.  Before tying the bow though, I added glue dots to the back of my fussy cut floral piece and adhered it over the panel, offsetting it a bit.  Then I finished tying the bow.

I stamped my sentiment and cut it apart, brushing the edge of each piece with Starry Sky ink.

I finished off with a coordinating 6 ¾ security envelope.  I traced the flap of the envelope onto a piece of the DSP and trimmed it to fit and stamped a floral design from the Dainty Delight stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I stamped this design in Mossy Meadow ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends (Light Mossy Meadow, Light Balmy Blue, Light Flirty Flamino, Light Melon Mambo, Color Lifter).

I hope you enjoyed this project!  The new January to April 2023 Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochure are available now with gorgeous spring stamp sets, tools and papers, and you can view these new products and more when you visit my online store here.  The specific products used for today’s blog project can be seen below. 

Sale-A-Bration brings with it great hosting benefits and also a great join special - your choice of $175 in product for only $99 (which is $50 more than the usual join offer).  There is also the option to add the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine in either original white or the exclusive Boho Blue color for an additional $30 ($63 value).  I'd love to share more about this opportunity with you.  You can contact me at kimskeepsakecreations@gmail.com with any questions you might have or to set up a time to talk about it.

Fitting Florets Beauty Sampler


 


It's Thanksgiving Day here in the United States, and I am grateful for each one of you who read and give feedback on our blog hop!  We are featuring the Fitting Florets Collection this month.  Hop on over to my teammates’ blogs for more project inspiration by clicking on the links toward the bottom of this post.

I am privileged to work together on this blog hop with a great team of stampers. Our team leader treated our blog hop team to a day of stamping with the gorgeous Fitting Florets collection, and we had such a fun time stamping together!  This collection of products is available through the end of November (while supplies last) and includes the Framed Florets bundle (stamp set and dies), the Framed & Festive stamp set, and the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper.  The Framed Florets bundle will be available in the new catalog coming in January, but the Framed & Festive stamp set and the Fitting Florets DSP are limited editions and only available this month.

This collection lends itself to any season or situtation depending on the colors and sentiments you choose to work with. I’ve had such fun creating cards and other projects with this collection including the sampler and scrapbook layouts pictured below.  Both projects have the same basic layout and both feature patterned paper from the Fitting Florets collection.  The “Beauty” sampler utilizes colors highlighted in the DSP collection (Balmy Blue, Blushing Bride and Polished Pink), but the scrapbook layout colors are drawn from fall colors (Cajun Craze and Pale Papaya).

Each layout has an 8” x 8” base and includes two 3-1/8” square blocks and a 3-1/8” x 6-1/2” rectangle. Embellishments on the sampler are from the 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds, and on the scrapbook layout are Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  

I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating with family and friends.  Thanks again for hopping with us today!  I hope you're inspired to create your own Fitting Florets projects - I'd love to see them!  You can find the Fitting Florets collection of products here at my Stampin' Up! online store.  Don’t forget to check out my teammates’ blogs for more inspiration by clicking on the links below!
