Welcome to Sale-A-Bration!

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to 2020 and to Sale-A-Bration! This is such an amazing time of year, because you get FREE products for shopping, hosting, or joining Stampin’ Up! I wanted to get our brand new Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Flyer launched with a fun project using the Honey Bee Bundle.

This bundle is perfect for a variety of cards, and coordinates with the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper. I am CASEing the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Flyer, and creating three projects for you that use this set along with that FREE paper! So be sure you follow my blog, subscribe to my YouTube channel, and find me on Facebook so you don’t miss out!

This card was a lot of fun to make. I tweaked it slightly to make it a standard size card instead of the square size that was shown in the SAB Flyer. It turned out beautiful, though I did have a hard time chopping up that gorgeous gold foil specialty designer series paper. But that’s what it’s for, right?!

I substituted a FREE SAB product, the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins, for the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon as I don’t have any of that beautiful stuff quite yet… but 3 spools are on their way to me! If you were to purchase the Honey Bee Bundle, one spool of that Ruched Ribbon, and an adhesive, you would qualify to get the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for FREE! For more details, visit my online store.

There are also amazing perks for hosting a party (virtual) or joining my team. I would love to talk to you about the benefits of each option, and what extra goodies you get during SAB!

For now, let’s take a peek at what you need to make this awesome card! Check out my video tutorial below, and please let me know if there is anything I can help you with!

Happy New Year and let’s Sale-A-Brate!

Honey Bee Bundle Shaker Card

Hello Kre8tors, and welcome to 2020! I’m so excited to get this year started off with some crafty inspiration for you! Today I’m using the Honey Bee Bundle from the new Mini Catalog, which will be live for customers on January 3rd, along with Sale-A-Bration! What is Sale-A-Bration, you might be asking if you are new to Stampin’ Up!? It’s a wonderful time of year where you get FREE items for shopping!

Before we dive too far into Sale-A-Bration, let’s take a look at this amazing Shaker Card using the Honey Bee Bundle from the Mini Catalog. I cut out the honeycomb using the die from the Detailed Bee Dies, and inlayed it onto the same cutout from a piece of Whisper White cardstock. There is a piece of Window Sheet behind the honeycomb die cut, that acts as the window to our shaker card.

I used the sequins from the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack which is a FREE item with a qualifying $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. You can start earning Sale-A-Bration items on January 3rd if you’re a customer, or go ahead and pre-earn NOW if you’re a demonstrator. Head over to my online store for more details! Or join my team to get your hands on these products ASAP!

I absolutely am in love with these bees! I’m normally not a bee person, but these bees are the perfect blend of not too cutesy with not too realistic. The shading on the wings is incredible, and they are so easy to color and cut!

The other stamps and die cuts in this bundle are perfect to create a plethora of projects! I’ll be coming out with MANY more, so be sure to follow my blog and subscribe to my YouTube channel!

This shaker card was inspired by Sandra Budde, a fellow Demonstrator, from Germany. She created a tutorial in German, but I absolutely had to make this card for myself, so I went ahead and made a video tutorial to share with you.

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Card Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White Scraps for Bees
Window Sheet: Approx. 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Daffodil Delight Shaker Card Background: Approx. 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Daffodil Delight Scrap for Honeycomb: Approx. 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Basic Black Scraps for Sentiments

Christmas Gift Tags Day 5

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to Day 5 of my Christmas Gift Tag Week. If you missed the previous four days, make sure you pop over to the posts for Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4 to check them out! Now on to the last tag of the series. I made this one to coordinate with some of the other gift wrap I’m using to wrap the kids’ gifts this year. I wanted to coordinate the tag to the wrapping.

There are several different style tags in my series this week which all feature their own little, unique flair. I hope you enjoy all of the tags, and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on my video tutorials.

This is another fairly simple tag, though it does take a little longer to make due to the heat embossing. But I really love the raised images, especially the white on the black background. I colored in the ‘Tis the Season sentiment with a Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend. Because these markers are alcohol based, they stain the embossing, unlike water based markers which resist the embossing.

I used some of the images from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, and the sentiment from Tidings All Around to create this tag. I punched the tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and threaded some white Baker’s Twine through to attach it to my package.

On the back of the tag, I used my Snail Adhesive to glue a small square of Whisper White cardstock to write the To and From. Alternatively, if you had a white paint pen, a gel pen, or a chalk marker, you could skip that step and just write directly onto the tag.

I really love the way this tag looks on this package with the darker color scheme. The white really pops and makes the tag stand out. Are you loving the ‘dark side’ of this gift wrapping theme? 😉

Measurements:

Basic Black Cardstock: 2″ x 4-1/4″

Christmas Gift Tags Day 4

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to Day 4 of my Christmas Gift Tag Week. If you missed the previous three days, make sure you pop over to the posts for Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 to check them out! Now on to the next tag; my personal favorite! Plus there’s some bonus content, a Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration unboxing! Check out my YouTube video at the end of this post to see all of the amazing products I received.

There are several different style tags in my series this week which all feature their own little, unique flair. I hope you enjoy all of the tags, and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on my video tutorials.

I’m a huge fan of the red buffalo check that I’ve been seeing all over social media and in the stores this Christmas season. It just speaks to me! So I of course had to make a Christmas Gift Tag that coordinated with my decor so it would look extra beautiful under my tree. Thank goodness for Stampin’ Up!’s Buffalo Check background stamp! Now I can make it in any color I want!

I paired this background stamp with the very popular Winter Woods stamp set and coordinating dies, In The Woods. I stamped the large tree and sentiment onto Crumb Cake card stock using the Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pad. I really love the look of gray on this card stock, it just gives it a more rustic feel.

After stamping my images, I cut out the tree using the In The Woods Dies and I cut out the sentiment using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. There are so many different sizes in that die set, it’s perfect for a variety of projects! It just so happened to cut out this sentiment perfectly. Again, as with a lot of my other tags from this week, I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to act as my anchor for attaching my ribbon and twine. I really love how it pokes out from the top of the tag.

I really wanted to make this tag super sturdy, so I made sure it had plenty of layers on it. The best part about using lots of layers and dimension on a tag is that you don’t have to mail it! You can build it up as much as you want and it will look stunning on your packages! All of my packages are wrapped in this beautiful lined craft paper, so these tags coordinate beautifully.

These tags were designed to last a long time, so whether you snag that tag back after the recipient has opened their gift, or let them re-use it in their wrapping next year, these tags should hold up really well! And here’s a peek at my inspiration for this tag. I found this adorable basket and wool blanket at Marshalls. The sign came from Wal-Mart, and the flowers were left over from a craft shopping trip to Hobby Lobby where I picked up the materials to make the wreath for my door.

Measurements:

Real Red Cardstock: 2-7/8″ x 3-7/8″
Basic Gray Cardstock: 3″ x 4″ & 2″ x 3″
Very Vanilla Cardstock: 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
Crumb Cake Cardstock: Scraps for tree and sentiment

Materials:

Stamparatus

$49.00

Paper Snips

$10.00

Christmas Gift Tags Day 3

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to Day 3 of my Christmas Gift Tag Week. If you missed Days 1 & 2, make sure you pop over to the posts for Day 1 and Day 2 to check them out! Now, on to the next super simple tag using Christmas Countdown.

There are several different style tags in my series this week which all feature their own little, unique flair. I hope you enjoy all of the tags, and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on my video tutorials.

This tag features the Christmas Countdown stamp set. I love how simple this little bird on a branch image is on these very easy tags. Such a beautiful image can pack a big punch on your package!

I used Memento ink in Tuxedo Black so that I could color in the bird with my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend markers. I also used my Wink of Stella in Clear to add a little bit of shimmer to the branch. The To and From stamp is from the Tidings All Around stamp set and is stamped in Memento ink. I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on one end, and rounded the corners at the other. I designed this tag to be able to be taped directly to the package, so you don’t need to use ribbon or thread, but still have the option with the punched out portion.

I absolutely love the way these tags turned out! They are so festive and would look beautiful on so many different wrapped packages. Leave me a comment and let me know if you like your tags to dangle off your packages, or if you prefer to tape them on flat.
