New Sale a Bration Stamp Set - Lotus Blossom

 

I have a sneak peek share for you today... you've probably already seen this AMAZING stamp set in the Sale a Bration catalog.. right!? It's called Lotus Blossom and you can find it on pg 7 of the Sale a Bration 2015 brochure, and see pretty samples of it on pgs 6 and 7.  I just LOVE it!!

Wait.. know the BEST part!?  IT'S A FREE Sale a Bration ITEM you can select with your $50 order from Jan. 6 to March 31!!

Lotus-blossom-color-suggestions-1-sab

Cindee and I played with this new set and tried all sorts of Stampin' Up! ink colors with this stamp.  Even though this is a 3 part stamp (3 step stamping) you only need ONE INK PAD to stamp it!!!!  Yes! just one!

We found we liked lighter colors the best, but you can use darker ink colors... see our tip below...

It can be a bit tricky with darker colors.. so stamp off the 2nd and 3rd images before stamping on your card.  You can experiment or just copy what I did in this post.

Lotus-blossom-color-suggestions-2-sab

So here are a couple cards we came up with using the new Lotus Blossom set and the BEAUTIFUL Painted Blooms Designer Paper (pg 19 of the 2015 Occasions Catalog - also available starting Jan. 6, 2015). 

Below: Lotus Blossoms stamped in Crushed Curry, Strawberry Slush and Blackberry Bliss ink to coordinate with the DSP strip. FREE Crushed Curry Sale a Bration Ribbon finishes off the card.

Lotus-blossom-stampin-up-sab-cards-painted-blooms-2

Below.. Keeping it simple with one color of flower, I stamped this one with Calypso Coral ink.  The Gorgeous Grunge splatter dots in Crushed Curry were Cindee's idea.. really a nice finishing touch, don't you think!?

Lotus-blossom-stampin-up-sab-cards-painted-blooms-3

I stamped hello from the Hi There stamp set in Memento Black ink, tied some Calypso Coral Seam Binding ribbon around the note card and voila.. done!

------------

I've been having so much fun playing with some of the new products from Stampin' Up!  As demonstrators we can preorder new products before they are officialy released so when I got my goodies I started to play!!

Here is a cute Gift Card Holder idea using the Gift Card Holder Framelit die from Stampin' Up! and the new "Best Year Ever" 2015 Sale a Bration paper, ribbons, and buttons you can get as a Sale a Bration gift with your orders beginning on Jan. 6th!

Sab-2015-best-day-ever-gift-card-holder

But seriously.. who says that a gift card holder must hold a gift card!?  Why not a cute tag!?  I cut one of the Project Life Grid cards down to 2" wide then punched it with the Angled Tag Topper Punch for this tag!

Sab-2015-best-day-ever-gift-card-holder-tag

After I stamped the tag with the Best Day Ever Sale a Bration stamp set, I drew around the edge with my Early Espresso Stampin' Write marker, then added some extra scraps and star punchouts with more of the Best Year Ever Sale a Bration DSP.

Sab-2015-best-day-ever-gift-card-holder-button

Last embellishment step was to add a strip of the paper and some ribbon and buttons from the Sale a Bration offerings!! 

You'll love all the amazing gifts in the Sale a Bration catalog this year!!  AND best of all you are REALLY REALLY going to love the Occasions catalog!

Stampin UP! Christmas Tree Tag

 

Do you need a Really Simple but so pretty gift tag for your packages this Christmas!? 

Try this one with the Festival of Trees Bundle of products from Stampin' Up!

Christmas-tag-festival-of-trees-stampin-up

HOW TO:

I punched a tag using Night of Navy cardstock (4-1/4" x 2") with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch then ripped Whisper White paper to create "snow" and layered it on the punched tag.

Then I stamped the trees from the Festival of Trees set, punched them out with the matching Tree Punch (don't you LOVE it when there is a matching punch to a stamp!?  I DO!!).

Christmas-tag-festival-of-trees-stampin-up-supplies

Punch Tip:

Christmas-tag-festival-of-trees-stampin-up-stamp-first

ABOVE: Remember.. always stamp your cardstock first, flip your punch upside down and center your image in the punch, then punch it out for best results.

BELOW:  how's this for a "double duty" tip for your stamps... use the dot stamp in the Festival of Trees set for some snow!!

Christmas-tag-festival-of-trees-stampin-up-stazon-snow

OK>> carry on.. go stamp tags and wrap gifts...

Gift Box Punch Board Christmas Boxes

 

Have you tried out the Gift Box Punch Board from Stampin' Up!?  It was introduced in the Holiday Catalog a few months ago. You can find it on page 5 or HERE in my online store. I love that you can make so many different sizes and shapes of boxes with it!!  

How-to-gift-box-punch-board-stampin-up

My best tip is.. get the Under the Tree heavy weight designer paper for your boxes (pg 5 of the Holiday Catalog) .. it works great for scoring and folding these boxes.

Gift-box-punch-board-santa-stache

Here is a green box I made when I was stamping one day at Cindee's house.. we made boxes and then created tags.. I used the Santa Stache stamp set to create a nutcracker tag on the Kraft paper (pg 192 in the annual catalog). I colored it with Blendabilities.. I would say that Blendabilities probably look nicer on Whisper White cardstock, but, I do love how this turned out!

Gift-box-punch-board-4-steps

Here is a tip for you about using paper with a pattern in the Gift Box Punch Board:

Gift-box-punch-board-diagonal-paper-tip

 

Want to see it in action? Watch the Stampin' Up! Video below:

How to use the Gift Box Punch Board

 

(reading this in an email? visit my blog to view the video)

Santa-stache-nutcracker-tag

 I used the Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Blendabilities markers to color in the stamped Nutcracker.  I stamped the mustache a 2nd time and die cut it with the Mustache framelit and added it to the tag with Stampin' Dimensionals.
