Lasting Lily

Today’s BS & J Productions’ Stamp Off Challenge is to use our favorite Sale-a-bration product.  The Sale-a-bration Catalog is full of products you can earn for free with a qualifying purchase.  There are stamp sets, dies, ribbons, embellishments and Designer Series Paper in this catalog.

I decided to use the stamp set called Lasting Lily.  This set is a DisINKtive® stamp set.  This kind of stamp was especially developed by Stampin’ Up!®.  The stamps show depth to them without having to do anything special other than inking them up and stamping them.

I love it when I use black and white with a pop of color so I decided to make my card that way.  The Designer Series Paper I used is also from the Sale-a-bration Catalog (which means you can also get it for free with a qualifying order).  It is called Botanical Butterfly.  This DSP has brightly colored butterflies and other patterns on one side and black and white patterns on the other.

I stamped the lilies in Flirty Flamingo ink and then cut them out.  Then I stamped the stems and leaves on Whisper White cardstock using Granny Apple Green and then cut it out using my Layering Circles Framelits in my Big Shot.  I cut a larger circle out in Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered the circles to each other and then onto the cardstock.  I adhered the flowers on top.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my Heat Gun.  I hand cut out the ends of the banners.

Now let’s go see what products Jackie and Buffy used.  I am sure you are going to love their projects.  They are both amazing crafters!

That is not all.  Today starts Sale-A-Bration with Stampin’ Up!.  If you buy $50 worth of products you get to pick something free out of the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  If you buy $100 worth of products you can pick two items (and so on).  They are also doing things a little differently this year.  The first 15 pages of the catalog have items you can order until Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31, 2016.  The last few pages has items that will only be available until February 15th.  Then those items will retire and Stampin’ Up! will offer new items at that time.  We don’t know what they new items are yet but I am sure they will be fantastic!

If you would like a copy of both of these amazing catalogs, you can pick one up for free.  If you would like them mailed to you, then you just need to pay for the shipping.  Have fun shopping!

New Single Stamps & Sale-a-bration

Stampin Up has added two new assortments of “never before seen” single stamps.  You can order these stamps until March 31st!  I used one of these single stamps in my card today.  It is called Basic Label and fits perfectly with one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits.  I then used a stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog called Vintage Verses. The Designer Series Paper is also from the Sale-a-bration catalog called Sycamore Street.  You can get the paper and/or the stamp set for free with an order of $50 for one or $100 for both!  Better hurry though.  Sale-a-bration is only for a limited time!
