The end of Sale-A-Bration is close now. Today’s Sale-A-Bration Share is using the Lots of Lavender set. You know what I like about this set? You don’t have to colour it if you don’t want to. It’s a 2-step stamp set. There is the outline images and then the “fill-in” stamps you can stamp over with. Of course you can do some gorgeous Lavender cards. This one is a little different. Try some Wisteria hanging from a vine. My card was inspired by one by LeAnn Greff you can see HERE.
Wisteria Wonder is a colour I haven’t used in ages. I thought it would work well on this. I stamped the Lavender a few times hanging from the top and by turning the stamp a few times I stamped just some leaves in between. Then used the Wisteria Wonder ink to fill in the flowers and then Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.
The sentiment is from the Amazing You set also from Sale-A-Bration.
To finish wrap around some Thick black Baker’s Twine, adhere the piece to a black card mat and adhere them to a Wisteria Wonder card base.
Thanks for stopping by,
2 Days left of Sale-A-Bration. Have you got your free stamps you wanted?? Be sure to get them. 🙂
Yet even more ways to colour the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper. The last 2 posts have shown colouring with the Blends and sponging. (head back to see those posts if you missed them). Today’s post is colouring the Foils paper by Swiping ink over it.
I have shared some cards doing this in past posts too. You can see them -> HERE and HERE. The first one shows a video (as good as it is 😉 ) of inking it up. You can see it if you dare. Great timing for our Wednesday WOW! this week as you can go back and review that.
The piece above was actually the piece I inked up in the video in the early post so I thought why waste that. This time I used the Flourish Thinlits. The sentiment is from Balloon Celebration. So pretty and soft that mini Organza ribbon.
On the card above I swiped over Bermuda Bay on to a piece of the Springtime Foils Paper. It needed a few swipes with it and I will say it can look a bit blotchy and you think “what have I done!!”. Once you wipe over it with a tissue it smooths it out and looks nice. Believe me. 🙂 The sentiment is from Beautiful Day again.
So now you don’t have to leave this paper plain (or you can). How easy is it to colour the paper with ink in different way.
So have you got this paper yet? I hope so. You only have until Saturday. And it’s free too. Stock up on some card and adhesives and maybe throw in a stamp set that is sitting on your wish list and you are there are $90. Then pick this paper up before it is gone. Head to my store -> HERE to order it now.
Thanks for looking,
Today, Part 2 of colouring the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper I will show how you can sponge the paper with ink.
On the striped piece of Springtime Foils paper I sponged over the piece with Pool Party ink using a sponge. The lower part of the card was sponged darker than up towards the top where that was very light to no sponging. Once you have sponged the piece just lightly wipe over it with a tissue to remove any ink sitting on the embossed stripes. I adhered some Silver Foil strips behind it before adhering to a Thick White card base. The sentiment is from Beautiful Day. I added a small angled strip of Pool Party under the sentiment. I just noticed that the Rhinestone I put on the sentiment piece has slipped to the corner of the card. Oops! I will fix that on the card. 🙂
On the next card I loved the colours in a card I saw on Pinterest.
I randomly sponged Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight and Soft Sky over the card then sponged over with a tissue. I kept the layout the same as the one above layering it on Gold Foil strips this time.
Tomorrow another way to colour your Foils so be sure to check in with that.

The Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper has been HUGELY popular for Sale-A-Bration. Have you got it yet? You really have to jump on this THIS WEEK as Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end on Saturday. Here is the gorgeous paper if you haven’t seen it.
For the next 3 posts I thought I would show you different ways you can colour the paper. Of course it is very elegant and classy just left on it’s own too.
For these cards I coloured them with the Stampin’ Blends. They glide on so easily.
For the card above I used the Dark Pink Pirouette in the centres and the Light Rich Razzleberry in the edges. The leaves were Old Olive. The sentiment is from Beautiful Day and embossed with White Embossing Powder. I had to finish it with a few loops of Gold Thread.
The card below was coloured with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. (Don’t look too closely 😉 )
The coloured piece was adhered to a mat from Gold Foil. I embossed the white piece in the top 2/3 of the Whisper White card piece. Tying around some Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon. The sentiment is from another Sale-A-Bration set Heartfelt Blooms. It was all adhered to an Old Olive Card base.
Stop by again tomorrow for Part 2 colouring with the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper.
I am going to miss these Party Pandas. Seriously, aren’t they so cute?? I had to use them again for one last blast. I saw THIS POCKET CARD by Barbstamps the other week and thought the Pandas would be great for it.
Here is my version.
MEASUREMENTS FOR POCKET CARD
If you head to Barb’s link at the top you can see the video with the instructions to make the card. Below is a general idea.
Card Base: 21cm x 14.8cm (8 1/2″x 5 1/2″) Score at 3.5 cm and 10.5cm. (Score at 1 1/2″ and 4 1/4″)
Fold in at the half way score line and fold back on the small scored line. Staple or adhere the front of the card to the back. Underneath the flap so you don’t see the staples.
Designer Series Paper: Top piece – 14.4cm x 3.1cm (approximately 5 1/4″x 1 1/4″) Bottom piece: 14.4cm 3.6cm (aprroximatly 5 1/4″ x 1 1/2″)
Cut the stamped piece for the image according to the size of your image. This piece for the Panda was card mat: 6.9cm x 5.5cm Whisper White 6.5cm x 5.1cm.
Pocket Insert: 13.2cm x 10cm (5 1/8″x4″) Whisper White 12.8cm x 9.6cm (5″x 3 3/4″)
On the Panda stamped piece I coloured a Rhinestone with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.
The Designer Series Paper is from the Bubbles and Fizz pack that is a Free choice with Sale-A-Bration.

Today’s Wednesday’s WOW! we are looking at the Happy Wishes set in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue. I have to say I haven’t really paid much attention to this set but I think it might be one of those hidden gems. I didn’t realise just how versatile it is. There are so many different sentiments in the set and you can layer them together before and after the main word or just have one of the 2 main words which are pretty in themselves with the flowery swirls. So since I didn’t pay much attention to it I thought you might not have either. So here is a video from Stampin’ Up! showcasing it. Take a quick look at it.
The cards look pretty with some simple colouring and a few of the sentiments.
Here are 2 of the cards shown in the video. These ones are fancy with the Textured Embossing Paste.
This is the stamp set. So many sentiments. How could you use them?
This set is available Free with a qualifying orders from $180. So be sure to grab it very soon. There is only 2 weeks left for Sale-A-Bration so be quick.
Have a great day,

I have just received the new Blossoming Basket Bundle which is a new Sale-A-Bration choice. I had a little colour with it on the weekend.
Here is a quick HOW-TO.
Emboss the Whisper White card with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.
Stamp the basket from the set in Memento Black on Thick Whisper White and colour with the Stampin’ Blends. Cut the basket out with scissors (sorry no framelits for this one). Just a tip to cut inside the handle: snip the handle just at the flowers on the right hand side. Then cut the white section on the inside of the handle. Then add a tiny dab of Multipurpose adhesive just behind the flowers and adhere the handle back in place. No one will even know but it makes cutting so much easier. Stamp the little tag and the butterfly as well and colour those with the Stampin’ Blends also.
Cut a circle from Pink Pirouette card using one of the largest circles from the Layering Circle Framelits. Run the piece through the Big Shot with the Scattered Sequins Embossing Folder.
Stamp the sentiment from You’re Inspiring Set on crumb Cake card. Punch out with the Duet Banner Punch. Punch another banner out in Pink Pirouette. Cut the pink banner in half and adhere these to the back of the Crumb Cake one with the ends of the pink extending past the Crumb Cake banner.
To assemble the card: Wrap around some White Organza Ribbon around the white card. Adhere to a Crumb Cake base. Raise up the Pink Pirouette Circle off the white card and raise up the Basket off the circle. Raise up the Sentiment banner down the bottom.
I coloured over the flowers and the butterfly with the Clear Wink of Stella Pen although I didn’t take a close up of the flowers. It is very sparkly though.
This is a really lovely stamp set and very easy to colour especially with the Blends. This Bundle is one of the free choices for Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order over $180. There is just over 2 weeks left so you don’t want to leave this too long if you want to grab the Bundle.
See it in my store -> HERE now. You can order from there too and be sure to check off your Sale-A-Bration choice before you finish your order.
Thanks for looking.
