Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack

The joy of Sale-A-Bration is earning fun products FREE!  Rather than buy the entire Sweet Soiree bundle from the new Occasions catalogue, I decided to purchase the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit (145578) and since my order was large enough to select a free Sale-A-Bration item, I selected the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack.  I thought these two products along with the Silver Mini Gable Box and the new set Hold on to Hope would make a cute project!

The Gable boxes were smaller than I was imagining but absolutely perfect in size!  I love how they can hold the sweetest of gifts and since they are so small, they are easy to embellish without stressing out!

I used a patterned card from the Memories & More card pack for the front of the Gable Box, trimming it down to fit. Next I used one of the stunning pre-die cut flower images  and Vellum/ Silver leave images from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit and popped that up on my Gable Box.  Finally, I stamped the words “Hold on to Hope” in Rich Razzleberry ink from the new set Hold on to Hope, on Whisper White cardstock and trimmed the end in a banner shape.  I then attached this to the box as well.

Now isn’t that a quick and easy way to make a WOW project?

Amazing You

Have you ever CASE’d projects in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogues?  Typically I don’t but one thing I have noticed is that my customers don’t really see the projects shown all the time. With my newest products, I decided I would copy several of Stampin’ Up’s creations, making minor alterations in areas where I simply did not have the exact product to create it identical.

When I saw the floral card on Page 16 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue, using the stamp set Amazing You, I figured I should give that card a whirl! I used Lemon Lime Twist and Rich Razzleberry to stamp the flowers outline.  Then I used the new Stampin’ Blends to colour them in!  

Isn’t this gorgeous? I coloured them much better than I thought I would but I must give the kudos to those fantastic new alcohol based Stampin’ Blends!

How about a close up to really appreciate that colouring..

This stamp set not only has that beautiful flower image but also some great words to create some unique sentiments.  I really like the layout of the Stampin’ Up! card, so I kept the colours the same and the layout of the wording the same.  I realized I didn’t have the same ribbon that they used on their card, so I substituted it with the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon. I also left off the bakers twine.
