SALE-A-BRATION PROJECTS - Create Hand-Made Cards

As a last nod towards SALE-A-BRATION 2011 -  I have a few projects to show you which demonstrate some SAB and Occasions Mini Catalogue products.


TAKE A SPIN Stamp Set Card
featuring: Game Spinner Hands, Designer Paper ' Sweet Stitches ', Pom Pom Trim
There are 4 different Spin stamps to choose from including 2 Birthday themes!




Some one special who you'd like to remember?
Here are 2 cards then which are jubilant and fresh! Use colour, in a pretty way or a playful manner.  See? Its hard to resist feeling happy when you receive a card like these!

PRESTO DESIGNER SERIES PAPER *reg catalogue 
I inked over the embossed Presto Paper with Melon Mambo Ink and a sponge, then quickly swiped off the ink with a tissue to reveal the beautiful foliage pattern once more - very elegant. 




3 punched circles as an accent!

Speaking of accents, look at this....


This is our NEW FUN FLOWERS Big Shot die in our Stampin' Up! collection - fab isn't it?
To make this colourful version - I've used the FREE patterned paper from the SAB selection - ICE CREAM PARLOUR PAPER and QUICK ACCENTS PACK! 
It has ribbon and buttons to match - also Free! 


Check out this - the ELIZABETH stamp is sold as a single stamp - $11.95 - beautiful!

As a Father's Day Card, you wonder?
Certainly, when you combine it with a NEWSPAPER PRINT - a Designer Series Paper in the Mini Catalogue called " FIRST EDITION "


The paper is black and white - but here I have sponged it with Bashful Blue ink! 

Now who in the devil is this?  
Why its our ever-so-popular 2-STEP OWL PUNCH - so popular, that it is on back-order right now!
But to add some more CUTENESS - it is paired with the BUTTON, BUTTON Stamp Set - see page 34 of your Occasions Mini Catalogue.  There are 17 buttons to play with - 17 !!!  

Buttons are a running theme right now - we also have the new Embosslits, SWEET BUTTONS also in the mini that moi is dying to get! It matches this button stamp set - sweet!  I've seen people using these button designs as 'flower' posies....awww.


Check out OWL up close!
That is also our NEW SCALLOP CIRCLE PUNCH - Larger than the newer 2-1/2 inch CIRCLE PUNCH - so more layering ladies :) 

Now find the time... make a variety of cards to put in your card "bank", and you'll have them when you need them!  OXOX




Well - there is my little tour of the Occasions Mini 2011 - which IS STILL IN EFFECT till the end of APRIL!  But sadly, SALE-A-BRATION is OVER TODAY at midnight!  The 'freebie frenzy' over for another year!  

WANT DELICIOUS COLOURS FOR SPRING?  Choose some of the colours FEATURED here - MELON MAMBO,  DAFFODIL DELIGHT, TANGERINE TANGO, MARINA MIST, BASHFUL BLUE, and pair with Neutrals CHOCOLATE CHIP, WHISPER WHITE.
