March Madness: Card #3

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to do a little something different by request. I have been asked to place a card that I had previously posted, into my March Madness Sale-a-bration Celebration cards …

This card was designed for one of my stamping retreats and actually folds down so you can mail it!! My attendee’s where the only ones who got to make this card and get instructions. It is also one of the most handled and asked about cards when I’m showing my work at craft fairs. So by request … this card will now be available to choose from!!

Please note that the designer paper may not be the same since that is from last year, yours may have current designer paper.  The dies and stamp set are still in the catalog and full instructions along with tips will come along with this card.

Here’s the deal …

$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!!!

Each card comes with full instructions and dimensions to make the cards you have chosen.

Now is the best time to order, before Sale-a-bration is over!  Get those items you need and want plus get the awesome cards and the Sale-a-bration items!!

You may place your order on-line or directly through me … either way will work for this great promotion.  Don’t let March Madness pass you by, get your goodies now!   You will have until March 30th to place your order and let me know which cards you want.

Thank you for joining me today and please feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

Enjoy your day ~


“Birthday” Card in a Box!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I am going to share with you another of our Spring Retreat Cards. It’s a “Card in a Box” created with the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper and Balloon Celebration Bundle.

I’m going to let you in on a money saving tip … Items that are in the Occasions Catalog as bundles may be in the upcoming 2016-17 Annual Catalog – but they will NOT be bundled, so if you like any of the bundles in the catalog … snag them up NOW and save 15%.  Again, they will not be bundled, this is the “largest” discount you will get on these items.


There are several different ways and dimensional layouts out there to create the “Card in the Box” however I like to demonstrate and share the easiest way to create projects and cards. Life is just more fun when we aren’t stressing over such things.

We started our project just like you would a 2-4-6-8 box. Once the box was adhered together we used the back as our area for writing our greetings. All other flaps were decorated with the different patterns of designer paper.

We punched out the balloons with the “Balloon Bouquet Punch”. On this card I stamped the balloons with the dotted balloon image in the stamp set to create more dimension.  I also added a white highlight with the chalk marker and then added a light, even coat of Crystal Effects (retiring!) on my balloons. This gave it a nice sheen.


Our birthday greeting was die cut from the “Party Pop-Up” thinlits dies out of the beautiful “Dazzling Diamonds” Glimmer paper! The entire card is quite dramatic and a favorite of my grandchildren!

If you would like the instructions and “a card in the box” … just place an on-line order of $25 or more. I also have a monthly deal that if you order $35 or more, you will receive directions & a minimum of 1 sample from my Monthly Technique Club projects!  If you can’t choose between the two … you can get both by placing a $50 or more order in May.  Please use Hostess Code: HEESBTSZ
