Badges & Banners is a great stamp set from our 2017-18 Annual Catalog. I love stamp sets with coordinating punches. Punches are quick and easy! And I really love this cute birdcage stamp. I stamped it and punched it out and – done!
The “welcome” sentiment is one of the stamps in the set. I actually cut it out with my Paper Snips to make it a bit understated.
The yellow leaves and blooms are from a die in the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.This is one of my favorite dies of all time…because it’s long and frilly and brings everything else to life! AND, these dies are actually FREE right now with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!! But, only until March 31st.

Truthfully, one of my favorite things about this card is the darling Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon! Isn’t it so sweet?
Do you like little birds? I used to raise finches in a cage in my home. They are adorable and so much fun to watch. I guess that’s why I love this stamp, it reminds me of my little finches 🙂

It’s almost time for our 2016-2018 In Colors to retire. They will only be available until May 31st. These have been beautiful colors to work with. I think my favorite is Flirty Flamingo, but it’s very hard to choose 🙂 I’m letting you know because many times the card stock, ink, and other items in these retiring colors won’t even last until May 31st. If you like these colors, please order the items you like now! To see all that is available in these colors, CLICK THE GRAPHIC BELOW.
The new Cross of Hope Framelits Dies are beautiful. There are four (4) cross dies of varying sizes, but I must say this one is my favorite. It’s a beautiful filagree cross, and it seems appropriate to be cut from Whisper White card stock 🙂
The background of the front of this card is a piece of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. And, I have good news about this fabulous paper…it’s continuing into the new annual catalog! Yeah! I love it and if you’ve used it I know you feel the same!
When I look at these photos, the card almost looks like the front of a Bible! I didn’t intend that at all, but I have to say I love the way ti turned out. The flowers at the base of the cross are from the Blooming Basket stamp set which is a FREE gift during Sale-a-Bration (Blooming Basket Bundle is free with a minimum $100 purchase through March 31).
The flowers from the Blooming Basket Bundle were colored with the wonderful Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. Oh wow are these great markers. Each color comes in a light and a dark shade and you can get a set of each color including both shades! The leaves behind the flowers were punched with the Leaf Punch.
Don’t forget that Sale-a-Bration only has 2 weeks left and there are so many FREE items for YOU to choose from!
WHY place an order during Sale-a-Bration? Well, for one thing, it’s Stampin’ Up!’s biggest sale of the year. That means you save/gain the greatest value for your spending dollar! And second, it only comes around once a year! So don’t loose out – don’t miss your chance to save the most you can!!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day friends!! I’m wishing you a “green” weekend! Today’s card is a shamrock made with two beautiful Stampin’ Up! greens: Garden Green and Lemon-Lime Twist! They coordinate beautifully and make this shamrock really pop!
The shamrock was created from 8 hearts cut from the Sweet and Sassy Framelits Dies (CLICK HERE to order Item No. 141707). Each heart you see is actually a two-layer heart. The lower heart was cut from Garden Green cardstock. The upper heart was stamped in Garden Green ink on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with a flower heart from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set. Then it was cut with the same heart framelit. The upper heart was folded in half and then I put a thin strip of Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the back side of the fold and adhered it to the lower heart. Then all four sets of hearts were arranged in the shamrock flower shape and glued onto a Whisper White oval base cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
The darling green paper with little white hearts is from the Coffee Break designer series paper ~ adorable!! NOTE: this paper is going to retire on May 31st. If you love it like I do, be sure to order some before it’s gone! CLICK HERE TO ORDER Item No. 144155.
FYI, as I begin to let you know about retiring items as we approach May 31st, please don’t wait to order them. Most of the time they are “while supplies last,” which means they may not last until May 31st. My recommendation is – if you like it, order it now!
