The beginning of the month is always the time I make and send out cards to my team. I send welcome packages to our new team members, and congratulate those who were top in sales, promoted or grew their team. That can mean A LOT of cards and I typically spend a week making, writing and packaging up all those goodies. It is a labor of love that I am thrilled to do.

Here are the ones are their way this month:

Stampin'up! mazing You stamp set, Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper, SaleAbration, congratulations, happy birthday card, DIY, papercrafting

I just fell in love with all of the Designer Series Paper in the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. This one is the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper and isn’t it divine?! Beautiful colors and a touch of sparkly silver. The sentiment is from the SaleABration stamp set Amazing You (which means it is FREE with a minimum $50 order!). It is stamped in Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry and layered on the Designer Series Paper with dimensionals. That shimmery Calypso Coral Ribbon comes in a 3 pack with Basic Grey and Bermuda Bay ribbon and is also a SaleABration item. I have been going thru this ribbon like crazy!

Stampin'Up! Amazing You stamp set, Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper, SaleABration, congratulations, happy birthday, DIY, papercraft

I had some circles of Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper left over and I could not let that pretty paper go to waste!

I layered a piece of Fabulous Foil Designer Paper with the silver side up to play off the silver accents of the DSP and added the Basic Gray Ribbon from the SaleABration Shimmer Ribbon Pack.

Stampin'Up! Beautiful Day stamp set, Stampin' Blends, technique, tutorial, DIY, papercrafting

Isn’t this butterfly just gorgeous?! It is from the Beautiful Day stamp set from the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. It is just the perfect opportunity for a little bit of coloring. I stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the layer of Whisper White and then stamped it again on a scrap of Whisper White. The Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends add a pretty layer of color to the highlighted butterfly. I am definitely no expert, but they are so fun to use. Is there anything as relaxing as coloring? Takes me right back to when my kiddos were little and we would color for hours.

The sentiment, those fonts!!, comes from the Perennial Birthday stamp set from the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. Have you seen the Perennial Birthday Project Kit? I think it is one of the best and most beautiful kits we have ever made.

And those little Glitter Enamel Dots are the perfect embellishment to pull the card altogether

Stampin'Up! Best Decision Ever stamp set, Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper, diy, papercrafting

Every new demonstrator who joins our team gets a welcome card from me and the Best Decision Ever stamp set. This is my go to layout, just changing up the Designer Series Paper each catalog.

Above is a Folded Whisper White Notecard with a 3×3 piece of Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper layered onto a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4″ of Berry Burst. The sentiment comes from the Best Decision Ever stamp set. This is a demo only stamp set that is on the supply list. I added the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon. If you have used our White or Vanilla Metallic Edge Ribbon, this is the exact same and is a dream to work with.

Stampin'Up! Best Decision Ever stamp set, Petal Passions Designer Series Paper, Basic Black, lemon Lime Twist, DIY, Papercrafting

I was so looking forward to using the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and I kept it really simply by just layering it onto a square of Lemon Lime Twist. The sentiment was stamped in Calypso Coral and tied with the Lemon Lime Ombre Ribbon.

so how about that card?!

Stampin'Up! Amazing You stamp set, Celebrate You thinlits, Party Pandas stamp set, SaleABration. Get all of these items for free with a qualifying purchase, papercrafts, DIY, I made this

I told you it was CUTE!

Details:

  • The card base is Stampin’Up! Thick Whisper White cardstock which makes such a perfect base for a card. It is cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. The scoring makes a huge difference in getting a crisp and clean fold line.
  • The top layer is Whisper White Cardstock cut to 4 x 5 1/4″
  • The focal point of the card is that fun Panda from the SaleAbration stamp set Party Pandas, free with a minimum $50 order. I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cropped him out using the 2″ circle punch. I added the little sentiment on the sign, also from the Party Pandas stamp set and stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist
  • The panda is layered on a 3×3 piece from the Tutti Frutti 6×6 Designer series Paper Stack. This is a new paper stack found in the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. It has some really fun fruit designs on one side and then a graphic design like the one I used on the other. I  love that because it makes it super versatile!
  • The designer paper is layered on a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4″ piece of Berry Burst Cardstock. And tied with a piece of the Lemon Lime Twist ribbon.
  • The cropped out words are from the Amazing You stamp set, also a SaleABration stamp set and free with a $50 purchase. I popped them up with dimensionals to help them stand out.
  • How awesome is that “awesome”? As a word girl I always fall in love with our word thinlits. This one is from the Celebrate You thinlits die and is one of the free items you can choose with a $100 order during SaleABration. I used my fine tipped glue pen to adhere it to the card front.
  • The last embellishment I added were the Tutti Frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins in Berry Burst. And yes, you read that right! They come with there own adhesive on the back making them so simple to use! They come in a set with 50 each of Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.

Sneak Peek for the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop!

The Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

Today on the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop we are sharing fun sneak peeks from the Occasions Catalog. This catalog is chock full of fun bright images that will make you smile!

I am sharing the stamp set Amazing Congratulations today. It has a world of potential and fun in how it can be used, but I opted for a really simply look

Stampin'Up! amazing Congratulations stamp set, Occasions Catalog, sneak peek, DIY, papercrafting

Details:

The card base is Stampin’Up! Thick Whisper White Cardstock cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″. The next layer is Whisper White cut to 4 x 5 1/4″

I used the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder at an angle to create a little bit of visual interest in the top Whisper White layer

The “congratulations” is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White. I colored it in using the Pool Party Stampin Blends

Stampin'Up! amazing Congratulations stamp set, Stampin' Blends, Occasions Catalog, sneak peek, DIY, papercrafting

The bottom sentiment, also from the Amazing Congratulations stamp set, is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist.

Both of my embellishments are from the fun Tutti Frutti Suite also found in the Occasions Catalog. The sequins are a dream come true as they are ADHESIVE BACKED making them so easy and mess free to work with. The Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Striped Ribbon ties so beautifully.
