Hi Paper Crafters,

I hope you had a good week-end and carved some time out for your creative spirit.  Today’s card using the NEW Sale-a-Bration release bundle can be used for many different occasions.  I love it when a stamp set is versatile to cover many card giving scenarios.  Here’s my card:

Stampin Up Blossoming Basket, DIY Stamping Fun, Blossoming Basket Stamp Set, Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

Blossoming Basket Bundle – New Sale-A-Bration items

On Feb 16, 2018 Stampin’ Up!  released 3 new Sale-A-Bration items.  You can earn any Sale-A-Bration item when your order total is $50 before tax and shipping.  The Blossoming Basket Bundle is free when your order equals $100 or more before tax and shipping.  

I used the Stampin’ Up! Blends Alcohol Ink to color my images.  These are artist quality alcohol markers.  Since these are alcohol markers you don’t get the brush stroke lines you get when using regular markers.  Here’s a video on how to use them.


IMPORTANT TIP:  When you use a Stampin Up! Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder remember to use ONLY one acrylic plate in your Big Shot.  The Dynamic Impressions embossing folders are thicker than the other embossing folders.  If you TRY to use 2 acrylic cutting plates you might break your machine!

Here’s a couple of YouTube links you might find helpful:

If you find that your card stock is cracking when you use an embossing folder try misting your paper before you emboss it.  This will relax the paper fibers.

TIP: When using Stampin’ Blends to color use the Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp your image to prevent your stamped image from bleeding.

Reminder:  Sale-A-Bration ends March 31, 18.  Earn free exclusive Stampin Up products when your oder total is at least $50*
