March Madness: Card #10

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well today is the day, all 10 cards have finally been revealed!! I think the real madness of the past 10 days is trying to get my cards posted for you! lol

Today’s card is full of fun, so much in fact … it pops!  I am using the Balloon Adventures Bundle. It contains the Balloon Adventures stamp set and coordinating Balloon Pop-Up Thinlets dies. There is so much you can do with this combination and if that isn’t enough … we have the coordinating designer paper, embellishments and Washi tape as well.

The photos do not do the card justice, again … from my phone. The blue in the lettering will not look blotchy on your card. I’m beginning to think my house is haunted with all the technology troubles I’ve been having! lol

Well that was spooky … as I was typing that in, I lost internet connection!  No more jokes. lol

There is a video from Stampin’ Up! that goes with this bundle as well, and it explains how to use all the different dies! Today I just used the pop up section and the balloon. Here is the inside …

Pop up cards really give you a “WOW” effect, and with this bundle it’s easy to do.  Remember, you will also get instructions, tips and dimensions for each card YOU choose!!

Here’s how …

$50 Order: Choose 5 of your favorite cards featured plus a FREE Sale-a-bration Item!

$100 Order: Get ALL 10 Cards plus 2 FREE Sale-a-bration items!!

Stay dry, stay warm and have a great day ~

    

Today’s Stampin’ Supply List …

 

March Madness: Card #9

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today we are going to continue the celebration with a Birthday Card! The birthday card was cased from the Occasions Catalog … I put my twist to it! I am using the “Carousel Birthday” stamp set and “Cupcakes & Carousels” Designer Series paper…

Did you know that the stamps in the “Carousel Birthday” stamp set coordinate with the Up & Away Thinlets dies (cuts our the cupcake & frosting for you).  Also … the cloud dies from the Up & Away Thinlets dies can be used with the “Cupcakes & Carousels” Designer Series paper … there are fluffy cloud patterns (see a sample on page 8 of your Occasions Catalog).

The little banners also came from the “Cupcakes & Carousels” Designer Series paper, just a simple trimming of the paper and you will have plenty of banners to use!

There is a little surprise on the inside of the card, but I am saving that to surprise those who choose this card as one of their choices. Anyone in the US can choose 5 of the 10 cards presented or all 10!! Here’s how …

March Madness: Card #8

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a special card to share with you.  Card #8 of my March Madness: Sale-a-bration Celebration fits the “theme” of this entire promotion … a Celebration! For today’s card I am using the “Birthday Blast” bundle.

I had a “blast” making this card! Two of my favorite color mediums together … the Elegant Eggplant paired with the Silver Glimmer paper.  I love this combination!! Why wait until Christmas to use your glimmer paper … we’re Celebrating!!

The “Star Blast Edgelits Die” cut like butter on the Precision Plate! And I saved all those little stars from the cut out images to add to my card. Check out the images (Click Here) to see the ensemble and a cute sample!

I stamped the images with the Elegant Eggplant ink onto Elegant Eggplant cardstock … love that look. If you want it more subtle, you can use your VersaMark® instead of the Elegant Eggplant ink.

You can see by the photo that I popped up the card front from the base and a few of the stars on the bottom.  The frame of stars was slightly lifted by rolling the glue dots and then placing them under the stars … it does 2 jobs for you; holds the piece in place and gives it a slight lift off the cardstock.  Oh yes … and I punched the bottom of the inside with the “Confetti Stars Border” punch!

Just think of the fun color combinations you can do with this bundle to celebrate birthdays or any accomplishments… school colors, team colors, or even a celebration of It’s a Boy … or it’s a Girl.  Have fun with it, it is a celebration after all.

Here is how YOU can get this card FREE  …

$50 Order: Choose 5 of your favorite cards featured plus a FREE Sale-a-bration Item!

$100 Order: Get ALL 10 Cards plus 2 FREE Sale-a-bration items!!

March Madness: Card #7

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I never thought I would get here today!! Don’t want to bother you with my electronic troubles so let’s get right to the good stuff … today’s card!

Card #7 in our March Madness: Sale-a-bration Celebration was created with the “Lift Me Up” Bundle and an awesome card fold. It’s much easier to do than it looks, and this one will come with full instructions.

Along with the “Lift Me Up” bundle I used the “Carried Away” Designer Series paper that is featured in the Sale-a-bration catalog and free with a $50 purchase.  Remember, with a $50 purchase you can also pick 5 of my cards … they will come to you finished and with complete instructions!!

Here is another angle of the card so you can see how unique it is …

I love this fold … it always stands so nice when you’re showing it off on the mantle or TV stand! lol

Thanks for waiting, at least I got camera #2 working and the color is much better than from the phone 🙂  Looking on the bright side. These issues are so small compared to what many people go through daily.

Have a lovely day, and I’m off to get the next card ready so it posts at a regular time.

    

Today’s Ingredient List …

March Madness: Card #6

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry for the lateness of my post, and I appreciate your patience.  Seems life gets in the way at times. Also seems I fall behind on my stamping projects during holidays, and we’re coming up on a big one … Easter.

I went into work for a bit yesterday to catch up on a few things, I manage a Candy Store and when you are about to loose 2 employees before the holiday, and everyone else is on Spring Break so you can’t even interview … I just get a bit tense.

Anyway … enough about that, let’s get to our card today! It’s card #6 in our 10 card showcase for my March Madness: Sale-a-bration Celebration. I chose to use the “Cool Treats” bundle starting on page 32 of the Occasions Catalog.  Wow … they have a well rounded supplies for you to create the most amazing cards and scrapbook pages! Here’s mine …

My apologies on the poor color quality, I’ve been using my phone for photos since my camera died.  The colors are: Chocolate Chip, Pool Party, Peekaboo Peach, and Watermelon Wonder! I’ll update the photos as soon as I can. The card is really fun and vibrant!

As you can see, I added the “Tasty Treats Specialty” Designer Paper and the Confetti Embossing Folder. It gives a nice backdrop and texture to the card.

This is one of my “Fun Fold” cards, so as you open, you have multiple layers of fun …

I have a little “alternate” surprise in the instructions for anyone who chooses this card as one of their “picks” for their March Madness purchase. Remember, here is how this works …

$50 Order: Choose 5 of your favorite cards featured plus a FREE Sale-a-bration Item!

$100 Order: Get ALL 10 Cards plus 2 FREE Sale-a-bration items!!

$150 Order: Get ALL 10 Cards plus 3 FREE Sale-a-bration items AND Hostess Dollars!!!

As promised, I will include the list of ingredients today, and THANK YOU again for your patience and for stopping back again to check out my post today.

Enjoy your Sunday~

             

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

Sale-a-bration Celebration in Review

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today we are going to review the first 5 cards in our March Madness: Sale-a-bration Celebration.  I was asked why I didn’t post the ingredients with my cards, so I will do so today.  This way you can make your “Wish List” out while your choosing your favorite cards.

Tomorrow I’ll be back with Card #6 … you won’t want to miss this one.

Let’s Review … MARCH MADNESS: CARD #1

The angle of this photo is a bit tricky on the eye … the black banner does not stand alone like shown. The back of the card actually closes to the end of the banner and a portion of the inside is exposed. It’s a cute and unique card.

CARD #1 INGREDIENT LIST:

~ MARCH MADNESS: CARD #2

A card for glitter lovers … Oh so pretty! I borrowed the greeting from the “Dragonfly Dreams” stamp set.  There will be more from the Dragonfly Bundle!!  What a beautiful way to tell someone “Thank You”.

CARD #2 INGREDIENT LIST

~ MARCH MADNESS: CARD #3

This is one of the funnest birthday cards I ever made … and it folds down so you can tuck it in the envelope!  The Designer paper used here will be different from the card you will receive but no less cute! And … they all come with dimensions and directions!

CARD #3 INGREDIENT LIST
