ICS Blog Hop...Butterfly Gala

ICS header

Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop.  This month the theme is Thankfully Yours.  We can all use thank you cards, right?  I hope you won't be disappointed but the only thing I am using from the Butterfly Gala set is one of the sentiments.  My idea was to share a quick and easy card and also give you a little sneak peek of what's coming in January.  

 

ICS-Dec20-1

This thank you note uses the DSP and a sticker from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.  The card base is 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2".  The Real Red layer is 3-1/4" x 4" and the DSP is 3" x 3-7/8".  The DSP is then cut to 3 strips measuring 1" x 3-7/8".  The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala set stamped on Whisper White CS and cut out using the Stitched Rectangle dies.  The Whisper White layer is 4" x 5-1/4" embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3-D embossing folder.  Love the Real Red Sheer ribbon!

OrnateGarden-ICS

This one uses the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP found in the 2020-21 Annual Catalog.  Love this fresh floral with Early Espresso and the super cute Gingham Bumblebee ribbon.

Flower&Field-ICS-2

The next cards all use the Flower & Field DSP.  Where do you find this DSP?  This DSP will be available during Sale-A-Bration.  This year Sale-A-Bration is a little different.  There will actually be 2 Sale-A-Brations!  Double the fun and free gifts!  The first Sale-A-Bration period is January & February 2021 and this lovely paper is one of the free gifts with a $50 purchase. This is one of those packs of paper that I love both sides of the paper.  There are fun floral designs on one side and the other more classic patterns like polka dots, stripes, chevrons.  

Flower&FIeld-ICS

Don't you love the florals and the polka dots?  The colors in the Flower & Field DSP pack include Basic Black, Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Shaded Spruce and So Saffron.  Lots of beautiful colors that all play well with each other.

Flower&FieldDSP-panels

I love this color combination of Basic Black and Pool Party.   So fresh and happy!

Flower&Field-ICS-3

Simple thank you cards that spotlight the beautiful patterned paper.  These cards come together quickly, the hardest part is deciding which one to use and that is a great problem to have.

Now it is time for you to check out what the talented Deb Naylor has created for you!

Flowering Foils

How are you?  Hope all is well with you!  Just a few more days left of Sale-A-Bration and yet so much more I want to make and post using those fabulous products.   The products I am playing with today were part of the 2nd Sale-A-Bration release. 

ASID-FlowerinfFoils-SoVeryVellum

The Flowering Foils Specialty DSP and the So Very Vellum Specialty DSP look so good together.  I colored in the background of the Flowering Foils DSP with the coordinating Stampin' Blend which makes the beautiful silver and rose gold flowers really stand out.  The So Very Vellum DSP is still available as a Sale-A-Bration choice but is currently backordered and expected back in around the 2nd week of April.  The pretty vellum is worth the wait.  You get 2 sheets of embossed vellum in 3 different colors: Pool Party, Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam.

The pretty frame is in the Ornate Layers dies which can be bundled with the Ornate Style stamp set or purchased separately.  The entire Ornate Garden Suite will be available for customers to purchase on April 1.  

The label is from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies found in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and the "hello" is from the Timeless Tropical stamp set.  

ASID-FloweringFoils-grapefruit

This card is for you while you wait for the So Very Vellum DSP to arrive.  Here I used the Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock in Petal Pink.  The vellum was embossed using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, part of the Ornate Garden Suite.  I think it would also be pretty embossed using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  

Remember to check out all the recently added products for Sale-A-Bration.  You can see them here.  Lots of great choices to choose from!  Just be sure you place your order by 10pm (MT) March 31 but it would be better for you not to wait till the last minute to avoid items being sold out.

Amazing You in Vellum

Today's card is a simple one featuring the Amazing  You stamp set.  This stamp set is only available for a few more days.  

AstheInkDries3-27-18

I stamped the floral image in VersaMark ink on card stock vellum, sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it.  The vellum was layered over a piece of Blushing Bride card stock.   It can be tricky figuring out how to attach the vellum to the card stock.  I placed glue dots behind the flower centers to hide the adhesive. You can also use a few drops of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue behind the leaves to secure the vellum without having the adhesive show through.

Product List

I love how soft and feminine this card is.   If you would like the Amazing You stamp set you have just a few more days to order it.  This stamp set is free with a $50 order. 

 


Springtime Foils and the Mini Treat Bag

I haven't used my Mini Treat Bag thinlits in a bit and thought it would make a great birthday/gift card.

AstheInkDriesMiniTreat

I used the Petal Passion DSP to make the bag.  I colored and fussy cut a flower from the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP.  The Calypso Coral ribbon is one of the 3 ribbons in the Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon Pack.

AstheInkDriesMiniTreatin

Inside of the treat bag I have a gift card holder/card.  I cut the slits using the dies from the Lots to Love Box framelits to hold the gift card in place.   I also added another flower from the Springtime Foils DSP.

AstheInkDriesMiniTreat both

All of this fits in a Medium envelope.  It is a card/gift card all wrapped in a pretty little bag.  

This is the last week of Sale-A-Bration.  There are so many great gifts you can choose from when you place a qualifying order.  It is also the perfect time to become a demonstrator.  The starter kit is priced at $99 and you get $125 in merchandise that you get to choose all the products yourself.  During Sale-A-Bration you will also receive your choice of 2 additional stamp sets.  It really is a great opportunity.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.  Remember Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31!

Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop...Take 2

Blog hop header

Welcome to the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop Take 2!  We are in the last few weeks of Sale-A-Bration 2018 and I think this was one of the best ones yet!  There were so many great gift choices when you placed a qualifying order and Stampin' Up! has made it even better with even more choices!

AstheInkDriesSDBH3-18side

One of the stamp sets I adore is the Blossoming Basket stamp set.  This is part of a bundle that was in the second release of Sale-A-Bration products.  This beautiful stamp set is bundled with the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder which means you receive both with a $100 qualifying order.  The Basket Weave Embossing Folder will be available again in the 2018-19 Stampin' Up! Annual catalog but the Blossoming Basket stamp set will not.  If you want this beautiful basket image, butterfly, tag, and 2 sentiments you will need to get it during Sale-A-Bration.

AstheInkDriesSDBH3-18

This fold is called a Center Step Easel Card and I first saw this style of card on Amanda Bates' blog a few years ago.  It is a very fun fold and once you get the pattern down it is not difficult to make.
 

Product List

Beginning March 15, there will be even more choices available with a $50 and $100 qualifying order.  Click here.

Sale-A-Bration 2018...Springtime Foils DSP

Yes,  I am back with another sample using the Sale-A-Bration Springtime Foils Specialty DSP (Designer Series Paper).   

AstheInkDriesSpringtimeFoilsresist

This time I colored the flowers using Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin' Blends.  When I was done coloring, I swiped the surface using the Tuxedo Black Memento pad.  I wiped off the excess ink with a paper towel.   

 

Product List

  AstheInkDriesSpringtimeFoilsresistside

I also used the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder which is also a Sale-A-Bration choice paired with the Blossoming Basket stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set.  Can you tell I am just loving this year's Sale-A-Bration choices?  Just a little more than 2 weeks left to get your free Sale-A-Bration gifts.  Contact me or shop online with me here.

Sale-A-Bration 2018 ...Springtime Foils DSP again

I am back with another card featuring the lovely Springtime Foils Specialty DSP.  

AstheInkDriespinkfoils

This is another easy card just a little coloring and a bit of cutting.  This time I used the Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends to color in the flower.  

AstheInkDriespinkfoilside

This picture though not the best, shows off the beautiful rose gold foil dots .  

 

Product List

Not very many supplies needed to create this card.  This is another situation where the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP does all the work.  Be sure to get your free package of Springtime Foils Specialty DSP during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order.

Sale-A-Bration 2018...Springtime Foils DSP

The Springtime Foils Specialty DSP is so pretty.   Part of me wants to hoard it because I know I won't be able to get it after Sale-A-Bration ends.  I am trying to fight that feeling and just enjoy the loveliness while I can.

AstheInkDriesCalypsoCoralfoils

Quick and easy card that uses 3 Sale-A-Bration choices!

AstheInkDriesCalypsofoilssideproducts

The beautiful foil images were colored using the Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin' Blends.   This card would work for lots of different occasions.  I plan to make more in different colors and not stamp a sentiment until I am ready to send the card.

Product List

Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31.  Don't wait too long to place your order for your free Sale-A-bration gift with a $50 order, items are only available while supplies last.
