Another Happy Moments – SAB Mini

Hello Friends – Welcome to the week-end.  Being Saturday I know your day will be filled with the hustle and bustle of trying to get things dones.  Always fun isn't.   Today's post will be short.  LOL I'm sharing today a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 sq. card.  It's a happy card to send to someone just because.  Stamp Set is Happy Moments (119125)which you can get for free with a $50 order.  I used Real Red as my base (love it) and I matted it with a 3 3/4 square piece of Whisper White.  Now for the drammmma.  To get the gorjus scallop frame I used our new and FREE Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402) and the matching corner punch Scallop Trim Corner (118870). Do your corners first.  Placement is key.   On the punch you will find a slot on each side of the punch where your paper needs to slide in.  If you don't get it just right your corner will turn out crooked.  Oh No!!!  Then place your square and line it up on the border punch.  Because of the size of your square you will only need to punch one time on each side.  Don't get discouraged.  There are several videos out there that will show you better than I can explain.  Here is a link to one of them.  Her name is Gretchen Barron.   Oh, by the way, is there anyone out there that can give me some info on how to make a video for your blog.  I sure could use some help on getting started. 

Workshops, Workshop, Workshops,  Now is the time to schedule a workshop so you can receive FREE Stampin' Up products.  Yippie!!!!   Gather your family and friends for a fun night out at your home or mine and I will show them how to take their creativity to another level and they can get FREE products as well.  You can't beat that.  Call or email me today to get on the schedule.  Don't let distance come between us.  We can do a virtual workshop over the internet.  Thanks in advance it sure is appreicated.   

Thanks for stopping in today and I hope you have a lovely day.  The sun is out here at the moment but they are threatening a little snow for later and it's so so cold outside today.  Stay warm in your snuggies.  Ta Ta For Now

Medallion Birthday

Hello Friends – Welcome to TGIF.  We are under a winter storm watch, so you know what that means todays, a trip to the grocery store.  ugh!  Have I got something for you today.  Get ready, its for sure a girly girl card for someone very special.  For my background I used the ever popular Medallion Stamp (115223) inked with Pretty In Pink on Whisper White cardstock and matted on PIP.  My focal point is two silk flowers from the Pretties Kit.  The small white flower and crystal brad are also in the Pretties Kit.   TIP:  The pretties flowers are all white and I needed some color, so I sponged lightly with Lav Lace until I got the color I thought was right.  Remember your flowers have to be silk not paper.  Ink will smudge on paper flowers and look spottie.  Sentiment is from the Well Scripted set in the Occasion Mini.  SU did such a great job using this font, so pretty.  For the lacey effect on the bottom I used the new Scallop Trim Border punch (FREE with a $50 order) from the SAB Mini.  Random buttons, bling.  Supply List Below.  Thanks for stopping by today and if you would like to place your order ( and I do appreciate every one) click on the link provided below.  Be sure and stop in tomorrow, I have another very cute card using one of our new stamp sets.  Try and get some stamping done this weekend.  It will lift your spirts on a dreary day.  Toodles

There's no time like the present to schedule your SAB workshop and get FREE stamps and products.  Don't let being far away keep you from taking advantage of receiving FREE stuff!!   Gather some friends and family for a fun night.  We can have it at my house, your house, even over the internet.   Hostess benefits do apply when you place an on-line order, but if your workshop reaches $300 you must place your order thru me so you can receive the extra free SAB product.

Happy Moments – SAB Mini

Happy Moments - Sale A Bration MiniGood Morning Friends – Did you have a nice week-end.  It's so gloomy here, I can't wait to see some sunshine.  I just feel better when the sun shines.  Don't you?  Today I have a card using one of the sets from SAB called Happy Moments.  I colored my images using the blender pen and a drop of ink from my ink pads.  Be careful though, especially if you are using Whisper White.  It will pill on you if you blend to hard or too long.  Just a tip there for ya.  If you use watercolor paper you don't have to be as careful.  The sentiment is from Well Scripted (Occasions Mini).  I just think it is a beautiful font and can't get enough of it.  LOL  Supply List below.

Have you had a chance to use the new clear mounted stamp sets.  I hope you're not confusing them with the clear acrylic stamp sets out there because they are not acrylic.  You are still getting the best rubber stamps available with the same Stampin' Up quality, they're just packaged a little differently.  Storage is great.  If you have a small area like I do, storage is a consideration. 

Thing to Remember – SAB and Occasions Minis in full swing.  Special of the Month (Vintage Vogue w/FREE roller) continues until January 31st.  Check out the top of my page for more info.  Fun fabric flowers (made with the Big Shot) just in time to celebrate Valentine's Day.  You can find them in my Etsy Store located on my left side bar.  Special SAB starter kits available (Join My Team Sandy's Stampers)
