Last Day for Sale-a-Bration 2015!

Sale-a-Bration is coming to a close!  March 31st, 2015 marks the last day you can get a FREE SAB Item with each $50 you spend!  This beautiful stamp set called Lotus Blossom is a must have for any flower lover, and who doesn't love flowers?  It's a triple time stamp creating this gorgeous layered look with only one color of ink!  Of course you can get creative with it and use more than one, but for this simple project I'm sticking with Calypso Coral!

The dimensions are:

Soft Sky Card Stock: 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4
Whisper White: 4" x 5 1/4" inside piece
3" X 4 1/4" front piece
DSP: 5 1/4" X 4"

SAB Celebration #7

Love Project Life?  Did you know there is a Project Life by Stampin' Up! Mini Card Collection that you can choose as your SAB rewards?!  
This super fun bunch of cards bright and beautiful with it's summer theme!
I love PLxSU for documenting my life for my children's future, but when I'm in a pinch for a card, these cards make it super fast to make one in a hurry!
For this project you will need:

Island Indigo Card Stock 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
Daffodil Delight Card Stock 5 1/4" X 4"
A 4" X 6" PL card cut down to 5" X 3 3/4"
Whisper White Card Stock 5 1/4" X 4"

I used the Bravo Stamp set to stamp in the space 'So happy for you!' with Island Indigo ink.  To add a little extra something I put a few rhinestones on some the flower centers. 

That's it!  Talk about easy!

SAB Celebration #6

This one's for all my 3 X 3 card lovers!  You know who you are!  Something about these pint sized paper hugs just makes my heart sing!
This project uses the Irresistibly Yours DSP from the SAB Brochure.  This emboss resist paper can be colored so many different ways.  Brayer it, sponge it, spritz it, Aqua Painter it, Blender Pen it, Markers, even take that ink pad straight to the paper!  Really!  This paper has so many possibilities! 

The inside of this card is just as cute as the outside.  The best part is using the 2013-2015 In Colors.  As many of you know, these colors will retire very soon.  Once the Retiring List becomes available in April they will sell out in a matter of hours...always do.  So if you love them, place that order and stock up on card stock and reinkers before it's too late!

So here's what you will need to create this cutie:

Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock 3" X 6" scored at 3"
Whisper White Card Stock 2 7/8" X 2 7/8"
Irresistibly Yours DSP 2 3/4" X 2 3/4"

Inside piece:
Whisper White 2 3/4" X 2 3/4"

I used a sponge dauber to add Pistachio Pudding ink to the DSP and then wiped over the leaves with a piece of paper towel to remove any residual ink.  Wrap around a piece of Strawberry Slush Baker's Twine for a cute finishing bow to the front.
The Easter Eggs are colored using each of the 5 2013-2015 In Color Markers.  Be sure to 'huff' on your image before stamping it!  Watch the video below for complete instructions:

SAB Celebration #5

This cute little monkey treat bag would be great for baby showers!  Too stinkin' cute!!!
So here's what you will need to make it:

Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper 5" X 7 1/2"
Scraps of Whisper White, Coastal Cabana and Hello Honey
6" Hello Honey 7/8" Quilted Cotton Ribbon
6" Whisper White Cotton Ribbon

With your DSP in landscape orientation score it at 1 1/2", 3 1/2", 5" and 7"
Turn is to portrait orientation and score at 1 1/2"

Trim up all the score lines and trim off the small rectangle at the bottom.
Use Fast Fuse or Sticky Strip along the narrow rectangle at the side of the box and fold it over to adhere to the other side.  Now fold in the back and side flaps and use adhesive to adhere the front on to the bottom of the box.  Squeeze the top of the bag together and punch a 1/4" hole at the top to thread through your ribbon.

Stamp the monkey with soft suede ink on Whisper White card stock and punch it out with the 1" circle punch.  Punch a coastal cabana 1 3/8" punch and then a Hello Honey Artisan Label Punch.  Adhere them together and pop it up on the front of your bag with a dimensional.
