Sale-A-Brate With Me!

Today’s classic black and white card features two FREE Stamps… FREE!  The Stampin’ Up! sets “Whimsical Words” and “Happy Moments” are just two of the FREE stamps you can choose with your $50.00 merchandise purchase.  Actually, there are 83 different items from which you can choose, including stamps in both Spanish and French language too!  View the sale-abration catalog in full by clicking on the link along my right side bar!

I love the texture created on the Nouveau Chic Designer Series Paper.  It was done with the Finial Press Textured Embossing Folder and my Big Shot machine.  After running the paper through the machine, we used a sanding block to lightly sand off some of the paper and bring up the design/pattern.  This can be done with any white-bodied paper, and works wonderfully with the Designer Series Papers from Stampin’ Up!

Of course, little things can bring a big WoW! to a simple black & White card… it’s all in the details.  A small scrap of Basic Black Cardstock and a flat backed pearl from the Pretties Kit add an exclusive yet simple touch to the bottom of the card, brads and stampin’ dimensionals add more interest too.  Kind of cool, isn’t it?

I love all of your creations! I'd love to win your blog candy because I'm a new demo and would love to add to my stamp collection! I've been following your blog for months and have bookmarked several projects that give me inspiration for making my own creations. Thank you for all you do!
