Oh, my stampin' friends...I've missed you! Things got crazy around this place during the holidays and I just didn't get into my studio to stamp and post. First thing on my To Do list today was to get things cleaned up in here so I could stamp, and that's just what I did! It felt great to get things organized and put away, and then to stamp....I found my happy place again!
And the cherry on the cake is that TODAY is the day the new Occasions Catalog goes live, along with the kick-off of Sale-A-Bration! This is my very favorite time of year because I get to offer you FREE product! Have you received your Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure? If not, let me know and I'll make sure you have them in your hands ASAP! There are so many beautiful and fun new stamps, accessories and designer series papers in the Occasions catalog, and the Sale-A-Bration brochure is chock full of great products you can choose for FREE with every $50 you spend! See why it's my favorite time of year??!!
I used several new products from a suite called Happiness Blooms on today's card including the Bloom By Bloom stamp set, Happiness Blooms DSP, Happiness Blooms enamel dots and the Dot to Dot embossing folder. I love the bright, cheery colors and bold images in this suite!
I started by stamping the images onto a piece of 3-1/4" x 4-3/4" Whisper White cardstock using Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Lovely Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie and Pool Party stamp pads. This piece was layered onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece Melon Mambo cardstock which has been run through the Big Shot in the Dot to Dot embossing folder. Finally, both pieces were layered onto a Lovely Lipstick card base.
The sentiment is from the Another Wonderful Year stamp set, and is stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock, with the left end clipped to flag. It is layered on a strip of the Happiness Blooms DSP...I lined them up along the right edge, then clipped the overhang to meet up with the card edge. To finish it up, I added a white baker's twine bow and a couple of the Happiness Blooms enamel dots.
Here's what I used for this card:
When placing your order, don't forget to choose your free items for every $50! There are a LOT of great choices...I know you're going to want them all! Don't worry though...Sale-A-Bration doesn't end until March 31 so you can space out your orders to make sure you get everything you want.
Thanks so much for stopping by...I have the very best intentions of being back on track now that the holidays are past! With that in mind, I hope you'll join me again tomorrow for another project!
Until next time...happy stampin'!
