Well, I'm back…….I think. I needed to take a little time off to finish some projects around the house and to enjoy the holidays with my family. Unfortunately, my husband and I both got the stomach flu on Christmas Eve. As if that wasn't bad enough, the sickness transformed into some sort of head cold from hell. I'm finally starting to feel human, just in time for Sale-a-Bration to begin! If you are one of my current customers, I hope you received your Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochures in the mail during December. If not, let me know. And if you aren't a current customer and would like to become one, message me and I'll be glad to send you complimentary copies as well.
There are sooooooooo many amazing new stamps & accessories available starting today, that it was hard to choose what I would share first. Since I've got a ton of birthday cards to send, I decided to use the Carousel Birthday stamp set paired with this week's sketch from Mojo Monday.
I stamped the carousel horse in Early Espresso ink onto Very Vanilla card stock, then die cut with the Stitched Shapes framelits and the Big Shot. These are definitely my favorite dies of the moment! Another new favorite is the watercolor pencils. Seriously, you should be adding these to your shopping cart right now! They are only $16 (whoa!), come in SU colors, and blend beautifully. I used pencils in Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Calypso Coral, and Bermuda Bay to highlight the horse image. I lightly used a blender pen to smooth out the colors.
The patterned papers are from the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Pack. It features 48 sheets of double-sided designs in a convenient 6" x 6" size perfect for card-making. There is also a Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit which is where I got the random sequins. This kit has a lot of fun embellishments that I can't wait to use, including tassels, ribbons, bows, and gold foil labels.
And the best part of Sale-a-Bration? You can get it all and get something free! For every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax), you can select a free item from the Sale-a-Bration brochure. You'll find the complete supply list with links to purchase below.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
