How do you make a quick and easy card that’s pretty? Well, I used the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit! This kit is full of already die-cut floral sprays, some beautifully colored and some made of silver-embossed vellum. I mean, WOW!
Here’s a video tutorial I made for you showing just how to make this card:
Can you see how easy this card is to make? Quick, right? I love having the supplies on hand to whip up a card when I need one!

Why do I love the Southern Serenade stamp set? Well, first of all, it has the basic sentiments we all use (thank you, happy birthday) and they are in a modern fun font. And, it has not only some pretty floral stamps, but also some unusual stamps — a lace border stamp and a lace background stamp. You don’t see something like this very often and these are stamps I really want to keep in my collection!

This week we have a great challenge over at Tic Tac Toe Challenges! Each week we have a new board and who doesn’t love playing tic tac toe? Here is our board for this week:
For my card I chose the center row across. Basically I wanted to use the Smoky Slate 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon (ok, I love it!) so I created my card around the ribbon! And, it’s interesting that the ribbon itself actually meets all the requirements of the middle row: it’s gray, it’s plaid, and it forms a bow!!
To create this card I’ve used two Sale-a-Bration items. The Amazing You stamp set is a FREE stamp set with any $50 order, and the dies that cut the word “YOU” are the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies which are FREE with any $100 order. I totally love the combination of these two ~ you can create all kinds of fun cards!
With the bold simplicity of the sentiment, we’ve just got to add a little softness, right? The tiny flowers on each side of the sentiment are from the Southern Serenade set in the new Occasions Catalog. This is one of my favorite sets right now!
How You Can Get These Items FREE and SAVE with Sale-a-Bration!
My recommendations for your order, to earn the two FREE Sale-a-Bration items I used to create today’s card, are the Stampin’ Blends Markers Collection and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. These are two items that are really what I would call necessities for card making.
These are alcohol markers and they color beautifully. I use mine constantly. Now that I’m looking at today’s card, I see that I should have colored the flowers and leaves! I’m going to go back and do that! 🙂 Love these markers!
And then, the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. These are my go-to dies and I use them seriously every day. I used one of the oval dies on today’s card. These should be in every stamper’s collection.
These two essential items combine to a total of a little over $150. If you order these items you can choose both the Amazing You stamp set and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies that I used on today’s card — for FREE! And, on top of that, with any order of $150 or more, you will receive 10% of your total in Stampin’ Rewards! That means you will be able to add to your order another $15 plus worth of additional FREE products!! Whee! What’s better than that?
Thank you for stopping by today. If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected] I’d love to answer any questions you might have 🙂
Welcome to the Pals Feburary 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “Case the Catty”. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will copy or remake projects from any of the current Stampin’ Up! catalogs and brochures. After all, who doesn’t CASE (Copy and Share Everything) once in a while. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
For my project I cased the cover of the Sale-a-Bration Catalog. I love the “for you” tag on the cover and really wanted to learn how to make it!
It’s actually made using the Lots of Lavender stamp set. I was so intrigued with the way the whole lavender bundle was colored in green, I had to figure out how they did it! It took a bit of experimenting but I finally discovered that the lavender flowers were watercolored with Lemon Lime Twist ink and the leaves were watercolored with Emerald Envy ink. I used an aquapainter to apply the color. When the water was dry I fussy cut the bundle with my Paper Snips.
The flowers are from the same stamp set. They are a part of another one of the stamps and the flower was cut out from the center of the stamped image. I stamped and cut three flowers, just like the sample I was casing.
The sentiment is from another Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Happy Wishes. It’s stamped with Bermuda Bay ink, a nice contrast to the other colors used on the tag. Remember, these Sale-a-Bration stamp sets are FREE with your order of $50 or more!
