Hi Stamping Friends!
Yesterday, I had my premiere Sale-A-Bration Celebration event and it was so much fun! Anyone who had spent at least $150 during the Sale-A-Bration promotion earlier in the year was invited to attend for FREE! Too Cool!
Here are all of the awesome projects that we created! I stuck with the Sale-A-Bration theme, using many of the products that were exclusive to that promotion. Even though the SAB items used are now retired, I still thought it would make a fun Sunday Showcase! Let's take a closer look!
CASEd from Chiaki Haverstick at StampingPro.com.
Project #1—A quick and simple card featuring the Feeling Sentimental set and Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper.
Accented with a Sycamore Street Designer Button and tied with Baker's Twine.
Project #2—A fun Z-Fold Card featuring the Bloomin' Marvelous set with more Sycamore Street DSP. Score card base at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2" for the Z-fold.
I adhered a 2-1/2” x 4” piece of Sycamore Street DSP to the front panel. The inside has DSP and Whisper White sections in 5-1/4” x 2”.
The focal point was randomly stamped with Pool Party blossoms and Summer Starfruit leaves. It's accented with a Sycamore Street Pool Party ribbon and either a hummingbird or butterfly stamped in Rich Razzleberry. I used the Bitty Butterfly Punch with the butterfly. The Bloomin' Marvelous sentiment is also stamped in Rich Razzleberry.
Project #3—I love this card design and I'm not even a coffee drinker! It fits into a standard-sized, Medium Envelope, and could easily be used as a gift card holder.
I trimmed off a little from each side; mark 5/8" in from each side on the bottom (the openinge), then trim from mark to top edge. I also embossed with the Perfect Polka Dot Folder.
For the lid, I used two 4-1/4" x 1" pieces of Whisper White, rounded the bottom corners and adhere them on the front and back of the card. A smaller piece of 4-1/4" x 1/2" piece of Whisper White is adhered to the top to create the illusion of a "lip" on the "lid."
More 3-3/4" x 2-1/2" Sycamore Street DSP is used to create the wrapper on the cup, trimmed flush with the edges.
Project #4—My favorite project is the Mini Note Holder with four 3x3" note cards.
The box is created with two die-cuts from the Scallop Envelope Die. Trim the bottom of the envelope to 1" wide, and adhere the tabs with Sticky Strip to two 1" x 2-1/4" sides. You can see a nice tutorial by Debbie Kalustian at Got To Stamp: Mini Note Holder.
I added 3" x 2" piece of Sycamore Street DSP to the front and back of the box. I wrapped some Tangerine Tango Satin Ribbon around the box and adhered it with Sticky Strip under the folded down scallop edge. The bow is separate and adhered with a Glue Dot. I didn't fold the second die-cut, so I could use it as a stand-up back on the box.
Next, I created some 3x3" note cards with Whisper White and decorated each with a piece of 2-3/4" square piece of Sycamore Street DSP. Each of the four designs were created in the same way. And, I'm showing both of my two cool versions of each so you can see how fun it is to mix & match the colors!
I wrapped a coordinating color of the Sycamore Street ribbon around the front, tied in a double-knot and trimmed.
I colored the Patterned Occasions images with coordinating markers before stamping onto scrap Whisper White and punching with a 1-3/4" Circle Punch.
The stamped circles were layered on coordinating 2-3/8" Scallop Circles and adhered to the front with Dimensionals. Cute, cute, cute!
I'm totally looking forward to doing another Sale-A-Bration Celebration for next year's promotion! If you missed it this year, mark your calendars for next spring to make sure you earn your FREE stamp camp!
Thanks so much for visiting today's Sunday Showcase!
