Bloomin' Marvelous

Bloomin' Marvelous bd
Thank you Brenda & Erika!

This is the most 'underestimated' SALE-A-BRATION stamp set of all six new stamp sets available until the end of the week ~ Friday!  At least, in my opinion ~ there is so much you can do with these images.  And, did you realize that the butterfly image in the set has a matching punch?  Yes ~ you can find it on page 13 in the Spring Catalog ~ Bitty Butterfly Punch, #129406, $15.95.

Feeling Sentimental

I thought I would post Sale-a-bration Samples this week as it is the last week of Stampin' Up!'s annual promotion.  Hopefully, it will give you some ideas on how to use the stamp sets that you have received by placing a $50 order since January 22.  Today I am posting two cards using the stamp set FEELING SENTIMENTAL.  We used this set yesterday at Terrie's party (it was so much fun to see my friends ~ Beth, Bernie, Marianna, Paula and Terrie ~ and to meet Jenny, Kristin and Adelina) making a card with the ferriswheel image.  Today, I'll use the bicycle ~ remember you have until Friday to take advantage of Sale-a-bration!

another Big Shot project....

                     St. Pat's Day pop top

Have you seen Stampin' Up!'s new SODA POP TOPS?  They are so much fun to play with!  This is one of the cards that we are making in my March Stamp Clubs (at least this week ~~ obviously, we will have to put it in the mail very soon!).  The Soda Pop Tops are $3.95 for 16 ~ 8 each of two different sizes.  The one I attached to the St. Patrick's Day card is one of the small ones.

Pop tops

Here are several of the larger ones ~ the 1/2" circle punch is just right for the smaller pop tops and the 1" circle punch for the larger ones.  Oh, and did I mention that I ran them through the Big Shot to create the great little border that you see?  More tomorrow.....thanks for stopping by!  Susan Elise
