Inkyfingers Papercrafting

Posts Tagged ‘sale-a-bration

Hello stampin’ friends! I hope you are finding some ways to take care of yourselves (particularly with mental and emotional health) during these enormously challenging times. No surprise that I have turned to crafting as a good way to keep myself busy and soothed during our self-isolation. Remember that crafting stimulates dopamine production (meaning, it gives you a sense of accomplishment and worth) not only when you’re actively engaged in the creative process, but also upon completion or when you share your creation with others. Meaning, put that lovely card in the mail and brighten someone’s day!

This month’s Blog Hop is all about Easter!

For my card, I hand-coloured the background of the gorgeous Flowering Foils paper to really make those flowers pop. This paper is truly stunning, featuring rose gold foil and silver foil on every sheet! Then I used my Medium Daisy punch to create some bigger flowers to decorate, and added a simple sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set!

I coloured a whole collection of card fronts in different colours. I just love the look it creates! I’ve finished two more of them for specific people/occasions, and have three more on hand for whatever inspires me next. Which colour do you like best?

This gorgeous paper is a Level One Sale-a-Bration reward item, meaning you can get it free with your qualifying purchase – but only until March 31st, just a few days away! Stampin’ Up! has also added a third release of free items for us to earn, all from the annual catalogue. You can check them out here on my website. It’s a fun collection, with a little something for everyone!

I hope you enjoyed my project! Now don’t forget to click on the buttons below to continue on the blog hop, and enjoy all the other Easter themed creations. Click on “Previous” to visit Erica’s blog and “Next” to see what MiRan has created!

Happy Stampin’!

Another demonstrator meeting means another collection of fun and beautiful Make and Take projects! I always enjoy the opportunity to get together with others who love stamping as much as I do. We have a great time sharing business ideas, seeking advice and feedback, and of course – stamping and creating together. Thanks so much to the wonderful demonstrators who shared their time, energy, and ideas with us at this recent meeting!

All of the projects are made using products from the new Spring Mini and/or Sale-a-Bration catalogues. I’ve labeled the photos with the main products used, and I’ve added a shopping list below so you can get any of the supplies you need to recreate whichever project(s) you fall in love with!

 

Barb showed us how to create an awesome little treat box using only one piece of cardstock and very little cutting. I’ll be recreating this project for sure – watch for it in an upcoming blog post!

Bruni combined the Heartfelt Bundle with the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set – a terrific combination. Extra terrific because if you buy the Heartfelt Bundle before March 31st, you’ll qualify for a free Level One Sale-a-Bration reward …. such as the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set! This was also the first time I worked with Merry Merlot ink, and I LOVE it! Can’t wait to play more with this beautiful colour!

Susan showed us how to create a beautiful birthday card using the Morning Star stamp set and the gorgeous Stitched Stars. The green floral images on the star above are all one stamp … the stamp is shaped to fit perfectly on the star!!

I loved learning how to do a scalloped tag topper closure card, courtesy of Laurel. Watch for an upcoming video on how to create this fun and unique fold!

I was also grateful to Carolyn for showing us how to use Blends to colour white embossing powder and ribbon, so that we can customize the colour of our project! Brilliant!

Lynne showed us how to make this adorable treat box with sweet little faceted gems to decorate! I love the heart-shaped opening!

I received this charming little notepad and pen from fellow demonstrator Susan. What a sweet gift – I just had to share it with you all!

The opportunity to learn from and connect with other demonstrators is so valuable to me. If you’re thinking of joining, this is the perfect time of year to do so – not only will you get your fully-customizable Starter Kit with $165 in product for only $135, but you will also receive a mini paper trimmer, a sample pack of beautiful Designer Series Paper, and a stamp set of your choice, all absolutely FREE! I’m always looking for new members to join my team, so if you’d like to know more about how to work your own hours, have fun, meet new people, and craft your heart out, let me know! Then we can attend the next demonstrator meeting together!

Today for Stampin’ Sunday we’re going to make a card with the Honey Bee bundle from the Spring Mini catalogue, and the gorgeous Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper has the word “specialty” in it because of the gorgeous gold foil accents on every piece. It is just stunning! This paper is a Level One reward item with Sale-a-Bration, meaning you can get it free with your $60 purchase until March 31st.

You could easily make this gorgeous card using Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the bees, but in the video I’ll teach you how to make a wobble spring to attach the large bee. The spring is pretty easy to make and it looks so cool when your bee can really fly!

You’ll need:

Cardbase: 8.5 x 5.5″
Coloured cardstock: 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″
White cardstock: 4 x 5.25″
DSP: 1.75 x 5.25″

Plus some scrap white cardstock for stamping your bees.

If you’d like to create a wobble spring for your large bee, you’ll also need the following tools:
– small circle punch
– pinhole punch, or a pushpin
– 30 gauge floral wire
– wire cutters
– screwdriver
– Tear and Tape

Once you’ve made your own wobble spring card, don’t forget to share a photo in the comments below! I love to see your creations!

I wrote a few weeks ago about the beautiful swap cards I received at the recent demonstrator meeting in Victoria. Here are the terrific Make and Take projects I got to create at that same meeting! All of the projects are made using products from the new Spring Mini and/or Sale-a-Bration catalogues. I’ve labeled the photos with the main products used, and I’ve added a shopping list below so you can get any of the supplies you need to recreate whichever project(s) you fall in love with!

Make and Take projects don’t have to be cards! Lynne showed us how to make this wonderful lip balm holder using Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. Perfect for gift-giving and craft fairs!

Bonny showed us how to make this adorable treat holder, which holds two chocolate hearts! What a sweet treat for a friend or loved one!

Crystal showed us how to make this beautiful pocket card featuring the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and Lily Pad dies. These two products can be earned free with your qualifying purchase during Sale-a-Bration!

The Gang’s All Meer stamp set (another free Sale-a-Bration item) is one of the biggest hits this season. Above, we learned how to sponge a background for our adorable critters; below, Adrienne showed up the wonder of how to stamp four stamps at once with the Stamparatus!

This fun flip card by Jody is one I’ll be CASE’ing for sure – and I love the non-traditional Valentine’s colour!

MiRan must have read my mind when she decided to make this easel calendar using the Follow Your Art suite … I’ve been longing for a teeny calendar in my craft room, and now I have one!

I was already pretty enamoured with the adorable animals in the Birthday Bonanza suite, and creating this sweet little tag sealed the deal! They are on my wish list for sure!

The opportunity to learn from and connect with other demonstrators is so valuable to me. If you’re thinking of joining, this is the perfect time of year to do so – not only will you get your fully-customizable Starter Kit with $165 in product for only $135, but you will also receive a mini paper trimmer, a sample pack of beautiful Designer Series Paper, and a stamp set of your choice – all absolutely FREE!
