Saleabration is back!

Did you know that Saleabration is back?? If you did not, oh my goodness!!!  you are going to love it!!

This is the best promotion we have in the Stampin’ Up! world!, as you get FREE products every time you place an order of $50. 

But it gets even better, if your order $100 then you get more FREE products, and if you spend $150 then you get even more FREE products plus host rewards, so it gets better and better the more you spend!..

In summary for every $50 increment, you get to select items for FREE.. there are NO limits on this promotion.. and this promo runs between August 3rd and September 30th!

So if you want to check out the Saleabration broachure you can do so HERE to see what you can get for FREE when you purchase with me! 

Saleabration Details 

One thing to know, is that there are 2 levels of products you can get for FREE. You can identify them by looking at the icons that says “FREE with $50 purchase” or “FREE with $100 purchase”. 

As an example if you order $100, you can pick 2 items from the “FREE with $50 purchase” OR 1 item from the “FREE with $100 purchase”. 

FREE Saleabration items with $50 purchase

FREE Saleabration items with $100 purchase

And finally, another thing to note is that these items are while supply last! So get first the items that you know we don’t manufacture, like paper, or dies.  As we know that once those items are gone are gone for good.  

With Stamps I would think we are safer, as we manufacture those items in the states!

Another Saleabration Perk 

One of the best perks that you need know is that during Saleabration you get even more bang for your money when you get the starter kit, and this time is really good! 

If you have a long wishlist (which I am sure you do, since we just launched our new July-Dec Mini Catalog) then getting the starter kit is the best way to go and here are the reasons:

  • You select $125 worth of products from your wish list and only pay $99 + tax
  • There is NO Shipping cost (so this is 10% additional savings)
  • You get a FREE past Paper Pumpkin kit in your Starter kit
  • All you subsequent orders are AT LEAST 20% discount
  • During Saleabration you get a FREE Bundle from the ones listed in the picture below!

Get a FREE bundle from this list when you purchase the Starter kit during Saleabration

Soooo goooood, right??

I mean you can get up to $60.25 on a FREE bundle, in addition to the $125 of products that you selected in your kit, and still only pay $99 + tax and NO Shipping..

You just cannot get wrong.. 

But you might be thinking, there might be some funny business here..  The reality is there is not.. 

When you get the starter kit:

  • There is not obligation to do this as a business, the option is always there if you want to pursue it later on
  • There is no pressure at all, from either me, my team or Stampin’ Up! 
  • If just get the starter kit because it is a good deal you can do so! 
  • There are no penalties if you decide not to purchase anything after getting your kit, though you might want to, as you get at least a 20% discount on your crafting supplies
  • You get the same perks as when you are a customer on top of your discount, like host rewards, discounts, etc
  • Early access to Stampin’ Up! products and catalogs, so you can preorder new products before anyone else
  • Access to exclusive Stampin’ Up! events (live or virtual)

But without further ado, lets show our Saleabration project for the day!!

Penguin Playmates – Christmas Cards 

I know the introduction about Saleabration was too long, but I wanted to make sure knew all about it!! 

I also know you want to see the projects for this blog hop featuring one of the cutest items from the Saleabration Offering! and this is the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper!!! 

Get these cute cards kit featuring Saleabration items when you place an order using Host code V4F43HJK

Are these not the cutest penguins and friends?? I just love everything about this designer series paper (DSP)! 

If you took place on my DSP Challenge last month, you know now that this type of paper pack is the BEST, as you can cut out images to use as embellishments in your cards (like I did in these). But also there are patterns in the paper pack that you can use easily for backgrounds in your cards.. 

So you can use this DSP to create the cutest cards ever! 

Color Combination

As usual I used the colors in the DSP to come up with the inspiration for my cards. This is the easiest way to pick up colors to create your cards, so if you ever struggle with color combinations, give it a try to get a few colors from the paper pack!

I promise you, it will be super easy! 

Is this color combination amazing or what? I mean, I might be biased since it has purple and I love Purple! 

Card Details 

And here you will see in more details the cards from this set.  And if interested below you will see the video tutorial for these cards. 

Christmas Card #1 – Fun Fold

As you can see this DSP coordinated beautifully with the brand new Penguin Place Bundle, and in this card I actually stamped the bow tie from this set onto this cute little penguin. also this penguin coordinates with the punch, so you can punch this image rather than cutting it with your scissors. 

The sentiment is from the penguin place stamp set, and the labels are from the Stitched So sweetly dies. 

Also, please note that this card is an easy fun fold, but it always has a wow factor.. and talking about a wow factor did you notice that iridescence snowflake?? this is from the Wonderful Snowflakes pack! and as you can see, it adds so much to your card.. so definitely a must have if you ask me. 

The ribbon I used for this card is the one from the Expressions in Ink suite, and it is the Just Jade & Gold Braided Ribbon. It just color coordinate perfect with this DSP, don’t you think?

Christmas card #2 – Gift Card Holder

This second card, is actually a gift card holder, you can see the pocket on the second picture. This is as well very simple to put together, so if curious, you can watch the video tutorial below.. 

For the labels I used the scalloped contours dies, which are becoming a favorite of mine to be honest!  And if you look closely you will see that I embossed the soft sea foam cardstock using the brand new Timber 3D embossing folder.

Christmas Card #3 – Friendship card

This super cute card uses the Wintry 3D embossing folder for the background! and thought you can’t really see it in the picture I added a light hand of Fresh Freesia ink with the blending brushes. This helped a lot in popping up the snowflakes in the background. 

An if you look closer I used the opal rounds as snow balls in the Polar bear!

Christmas Cards for 2021

blog hop banner

Have you started working on your Christmas cards already? if you are still trying to get ideas or have not decided yet on what to do this year, then you are going to be in for a treat! As today we are going to share with you Christmas cards to help you get ready for the holidays!!  

So hop with us and visit all participating blogs! I am sure you’ll get lots of ideas and inspiration to get you going! 

Let’s get started!

Christmas Card

Since we are featuring Christmas projects for this blog hop, I decided to showcase the Tidings of Christmas Suite from the Annual Catalog. This suite has an elegant designer series paper (DSP) and a super cute bundle called Tidings & Trimmings. 

The die set in this bundle has a great set of stars that can get die cut and use as a standalone piece or as the focal point in your cards! And this is exactly how I used it on my card today as you can see below. 

Learn how to make an easy Christmas card using the Tidings of Christmas suite from Stampin' Up!

Color Combination 

As usual, I followed the DSP to pick a color combo. This has been by far one of the easiest ways to get color combinations for your cards. 

So if you ever struggle with color ideas give this a try! Pick a DSP pack and then pay with the colors included in the pack! 

By the way, if you have not heard yet, there is an awesome promotion during July where selected pattern papers are at 15% discount! And the Tidings of Christmas DSP is part of that promotion, so if you have thinking about this paper pack, this month is perfect to add it to your collection! 

Think about it, if you get the Tidings of Christmas DSP, you could start making your Christmas cards right away! 😉 Ready to get your favorites DSP? then go to my store and put them in your cart. 

Other packs included in this promotion are listed below:

  • You’re a Peach, Sweet Symmetry, Hand-Penned, 
  • Tiding of Christmas, In Good Taste, Pansy Petals
  • Beauty of the Earth, Bloom where You’re Planted, In the Wild

Christmas Card Details & Other Information 

Below you can see the inside of this card, as you can see this is an easy fancy fold. 

For this fancy fold you just need to fold the card base in half and then the front in half again and you are done!  super easy right?

Learn how to make an easy Christmas card using the Tidings of Christmas suite from Stampin' Up!

Also as you can see for the inside of this card I stamped the star and the sentiment. The star is with the Soft Sea Foam, mainly because I wanted a light color under the sentiment.  And the sentiment is in Early Expresso. 

For the sentiment in the front I used Evening Green and then punched it with the dual oval. 

One thing to note is that the detail star in the front can be glue down two ways:

  • Add adhesive sheets to the back of the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and then die cut – this will create a sticker so it is easy to glue it to the green star. 
  • Or you can due cut the Cherry Cobbler star and then add it using the fine tip glue pen, which is what I did on this one 

Both ways will work perfectly, so just pick the one that is easiest for you!

Also beneath the green star I added the elegant trim to pop a bit of gold in the card. 

Below you will find the full supply list for you to see all the materials I used.  As always you can click on the images to get to my online store where you can purchase any of the products I used.

Cute Winter Cards to Make

Today I wanted to share with you three cute winter cards to make for your friends and loved ones! As I am sure they will love getting one of these during the holidays.. 

Not to mention that these cards have a more generic sentiment, so you can send these for the people who does not celebrate Christmas? that way you still keep sharing the love during other holidays during the winter.. Is that not clever? I thought so 😉

Plus this post is part of an amazing blog hop that will showcase projects for other holidays but Christmas! so I am sure you will get so many more ideas that you really want to check out all the other blogs participating in this blog hop!blog hop banner

So without further ado, here are the three cutest cards featuring the Warm and Toasty Stamp set!! and I will be honest, while I love all the critters in this set, I cant get enough of these cute polar bears!! I just love them!! 

Cute Winter Cards to make

And even better these are great for making tons of cards, as you dont have to color for hours!! lol.. Don’t get me wrong I love coloring, but when I need to make several of them for the holidays, I definitely enjoy making simpler coloring like these polar bears.. I will go into more detail later on.. 

Three Cute Winter Cards 

So for these cards I wanted to use the polar bear, but this stamp set is not part of a suite, so I needed to pick everything from scratch (in a way).. So I decided to go with the Snowflake Splendor Designer series paper (DSP)!!! 

As the name says it, it is all about snowflakes. So I thought it would go really well with the winter cards I wanted to make! 

Color Combination

The next thing I always try to decide is the color combination. Everything is so much easier when you have selected the colors you want to play with. 

So since I decided to use the snowflake splendor DSP, I proceeded to look for the pattern I liked the most. This would then help me in deciding the color combo. 

I decided to use the patterns that had pool party and whisper white.. and from the paper, I saw some patterns with the Highland Heather and Purple Posy, so I decided to use that color as a highlight color. And what best than use this color for the hat and the scarf on the cute polar bear!!!

After all I wanted these cards not to look Christmas-y, since I wanted to use these for other holiday.. So the color combo is the following 

What do you think? do you like it? I definitely loved it!! and I think that it was a great combo for these cute winter cards! 

Once I had selected the color combo, then it was easy to pick up embellishments that would go well with these colors..

This is what I love the most from Stampin’ Up!.. All their products color coordinate!!, so it is easy to just pull out cardstock, ink, embellishments in the colors from the color combination!

For these cards, it was the adhesive-backed snowflakes and the snowflake splendor ribbon which has a sheer color with these colors!  

Other Details

Finally its time to put together the cards!! so at this time I usually think of layouts. Here are the sketches I came up with for these cute cards.. 

          sketches to play      sketches to play      sketches to play

Usually I just start playing with label die cuts, so that I see how these look in a particular layout or sketch until I am happy with how it looks. 

I cannot recommend enough to invest in all the label dies!! seriously..  you can create sooooooo many layouts just by switching labels on whatever layout or sketch you want! I promise you!!  

          Cute Winter Cards to make      Cute Winter Cards to make      Cute Winter Cards to make

So for these cards I decided to use the Celebration dies!! these are becoming one of my favorite ones!! I used them in the past 2 blog posts.. so check them out, to see a few more examples.. you will see that these always make my cards pop!!

  • On this post, I used them for a window in a fun fold as well as a label for another fun fold card. 
  • On this post I used them to create Christmas cards 

Coloring the Polar Bears!

As I was mentioning earlier in the post, I thought these polar bears were super easy to color!! Specially if you are thinking about making several of these!! And so I wanted to share with you a close up on the polar bear, so you can see in more detail how you can color these.. 

How to color with alcohol markers

I colored the images on these cards with the Stampin’ Blends, a.k.a. alcohol markers. Since these markers are from Stampin’ Up! they color coordinate beautifully with the color combo!!

Now, when the image is mainly white I love to just outline some areas of the image with either pool party light or gray granite light, that way it looks like it has some  shadows and it looks finished!  

And for any critter I love to add little cheeks with the flirty flamingo light. This is just a little circle with a light hand. They always look so cute!!

For the hat and the scarf, I used the Highlight Heather light for the main areas and then color a little shadow with the light of the Purple Posy. And to finish this cute little polar bear I added Wink of Stella in all the white areas of the hat and the scarf. And then added Crystal Effects to the nose and the skates!! This honestly added so much to the bear!!!  So give it a try!!! you will love it!

But even better, today I am participating in the Tag Buffet Blog hop with my fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, who will share even more ideas with this kit!! so you don’t want to miss any of these blogs! 

I know you will get tons of ideas with this kit and lots of inspiration…

Tag Buffet Blog Hop

So without further ado, here are the Christmas cards I made using the Tag Buffet kit from Stampin’ Up!. 

Easy Christmas Cards using the Tag Buffet Kit

The Tag Buffet kit is an amazing kit that was designed to make 30 tags!! Five of six different designs!! and the kit is only $30USD, so pretty economic. Not to mention that the tags are just gorgeous!! 

However in my case, I wanted to use the items in the kit for card making as I tend to need a lot of cards during this season. And using this kit made it super easy, mainly because everything is already “premade” meaning there are die cuts that can be used to embellish your cards.

So where do we start?

The first thing to do is to pick the colors you want to use for yours Christmas cards.

Just check the colors included in the Tag Buffet kit and pick up cardstock in the same colors. Then mix and match the cardstock with the elements from the kit.

For the cards I am sharing today I went with Shaded Spruce as the main color and I used it for the card bases. I also think I could have made these cards using Real Red as well, this color would have coordinated nicely too. 

Below are the colors that would go really well with the Tag Buffet kit when making cards. 

So pick some of these colors and play with them and get crafty! 😉

Easy Christmas Cards using the Tag Buffet Kit

Below you can see in more detail Five easy Christmas cards that you can make using this kit, however let me say that you can create a lot more by changing the colors, or the layouts!  

One thing to mention is that I used the Tag Buffet stamp set for the sentiment, but you can use any other stamp set you already have..  I definitely love the fonts and the sentiments in this set and it coordinates beautifully with the kit, don’t you think? 

For the card with the cardinal I also used the leaves images to create a stamped background and then I embossed it with the tasteful textile 3D embossing folder to add even more dimension and texture to the card. 

And if you are particularly interested to learn on how to make these cards step by step, then make sure you watch the video tutorial below! You will see how easy you can make all of these Christmas cards with the Tag Buffet kit .

Easy Christmas Card to make 

Trimming the Town suiteMy card today features the suite of “Trimming the Town” from Stampin’ Up! which includes a designer series paper, a stamp set with a coordinated die set, as well as a Ribbon pack with both Old Olive and Real Red ribbons with a gold edge that looks very festive and an embellishment pack that has stars, and little dots that will surely decorate your cards really nice!

The designer series paper a.k.a. DSP or paper pack in this suite has images that can be die cut as well with the coordinating die set, which ultimately makes it super easy for you to put together cards.  You will see this on the card I show below..

This DSP also have have scenery designs, so you can create cards with premade scenes, where you would only need to add a sentiment, a bow and it would look perfect!

It also includes fun patterns that you can use to make any type of card, not just Christmas.  Plus there is one sheet that is all about sentiments in so many languages!!! so you can customize your cards with different languages, which comes very handy, since this stamp set does not have sentiment.

By now I am sure you see that this paper pack contains patterns that can be use for so many type of cards, so it is very versatile! 

And as far as the stamp set, please notice that the majority of the images on this set has a coordinating die, so no fussy cutting at all! Plus there are additional border dies that can make the cutest landscape with pines.. So you can make snow scenes if using white paper; though I am sure you can create different season landscapes if playing with different cardstock colors. 

Below is the card I created using this suite!

Color Combination

As usual, I used the designer series paper as my inspiration. This is one of the ways I find myself selecting colors for my cards fast and usually they turn really good..

So if you struggle with color combos, I challenge you to select a paper pack and see the colors you like from the patterns. Then select a few of them to make a card. Let me know how it goes.. I’d love to hear from you.. 

Even better, if you have other ways to get color combos, share them with us in the comments.. we learn so much when we share with each other.. 

Card Details 

Easy Christmas Card

For my card I used the the houses and the little wreath from the designer series paper. And I made the snowy landscape with the dies. 

I cut both of the dies with Whisper White. The one with the pine trees and the one without them, that way I could have two layers in the landscape scene I created.

And for the pine trees, I decided to color them using the stampin’ blends. this was particularly easy as these borders were cut in Whisper White.  To embellish them a little bit more, I added Wink of stella to the top of the Pine trees. 

By the way, I could have used designer series paper for the background, since there is one sheet with a snowy sky pattern. However for my card I decided to go with cardstock (Misty Moonlight), and added the stars from the embellishment pack.  

Also, I added crystal effects to the bow on the wreath, as well as the top section of the green house’s door.  This always helps in highlighting some sections of your card and give some dimension. 

To finish the card, I added a bow around the top panel, and a sentiment from the designer series paper. And if you see closely, you can see I added a few snowflakes to the snow portion of this card.
