Simply Sports Stamp Set
I love this new B.Y.O.P. Stamp Set!  What is B.Y.O.P.?  It means "buy your own present".  So perfect to include a gift card or money in your handmade card.  I resized my card to add a pocket at the bottom of the card by scoring at 1 1/4" from the bottom to fold the section over and applied some adhesive at the both sides.  I embellished it with a piece of DSP (1" x 5 1/4").

SAB Lotus Blossom Card & NEW Weekly Deals

Here is one of the Card Club projects we are making this month.  Isn't it gorgeous???  I LOVE the new Lotus Blossom Stamp Set from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  Remember, you can get this Lotus Blossom Stamp Set for FREE when you spend $50 (before shipping and tax) during the Sale-A-Bration promotion (ends March 31, 2015). 

Can you believe I stamped this beautiful flower using only one ink pad (Coastal Cabana)???  I have been experimenting with 2-3 ink pads of different color combinations but have found that I liked using only one ink pad with the stamp-off technique better. 

Follow these simple steps to check it out:

Please note that Stampin' Up! has added a small tab to each flower image for two-step stamping.  Look at your stamps carefully before getting them out of your stamp case.  

  • Stamp 1 - Inside Petals
  • Stamp 2 - Large Textured Image
  • Stamp 3 - Solid Image
  1. Starting with the Inside Petals image first, ink your stamp and stamp on Whisper White card stock.  
  2. Ink your Large Textured stamp and stamp off ONCE on scrap paper.  Then stamp onto your first image.
  3. Ink your Solid Image stamp and stamp off TWICE.  Then stamp onto your flower. 

 Here is another sample I made using Calypso Coral.  So pretty!!!


You might be wondering about the background paper.  It's another FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  This Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (138635) has a glossy white pattern which is perfect for coloring using a variety of techniques.  It's fun too!!!

Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Scrapbook & NEW Weekly Deals

Here is a cute mini scrapbook we made at my Scrapbook Club this month.  I LOVE the new Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies in the Occasions Catalog.  I have made some cute Valentine treat bags using the dies and have found it so versatile for many projects. 


So my first take on this Treat Bag dies I came up with a mini scrapbook.  I made a treat bag with Basic Black card stock and embossed the front panel of the treat bag with the Ampersand Embossing Folder.  I embellished it with the new Stacked with Love Washi Tape and Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker's Twine.  The stamps are from the Groovy Love and Crazy About You (Occasions Catalog) stamp sets. 

Here is the cover page of my mini scrapbook.  I LOVE the new Happy Heart Embossing Folder!!!

The new Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack was popular among my Scrapbook gals.

There is a pocket in the middle of the scrapbook and a cute tag made with the new Ornate Tag Topper Punch fits nicely in the pocket. 

Here is the back page of my scrapbook.
