Today is the last day of sale-a-bration!

Well it's sad, but true. Sale-a-bration is coming to an end. So I wanted to show you one last stamp set that you could earn for free with a purchase of $50.00 or more! This one is actually out of the big Idea book & catalog. Did you know there is an entire list of stamp sets from the big catalog that you can get for free! It's the last page of the sale-a-bration catalog.
I've been using my color coach a lot lately and it's so much fun to see the color combinations that they put together for you. This color combination was baja breeze and not quite navy. I added crumb cake and champagne shimmer paint and baja glass glitter (from the spring mini catalog).
 There are so many small details. Here you can see the little pearls that I've added to the sentiment. I also used a blender pen and my champagne shimmer paint to give the sentiment a little extra something. I also took some of the crumb cake seam binding and twirled and folded it all different directions until I liked the outcome of the ribbon.

If you would like to get this stamp set for free, then orders can be placed with me up until 8:30 pm TONIGHT. (Thursday March 31st)
Orders can be placed by phone, email or right online through my online store.
Have a great day and happy stampin!

Hello BABY! - sale-a-bration style

Happy SUNNY morning to you! Where I am the sun is bright and I'm loving it! Today I have a card to share that is actually a welcome baby card for a friend. My friend used this owl for her baby announcement so I thought I would use it for her congratulations card. This owl is part of one of our sale-a-bration stamp sets called "punch bunch".  You can get this stamp set for FREE with a purchase of $50.00! This Thursday is the last day to place an order to qualify for free sale-a-bration products.
 Designer paper was king on this card. I actually used 3 different dsp's! They where all from one of those level 1 paper packs (this one is from a few years ago).
 Punches also ruled on this card. I used 5 different punches. I hate to cut things by hand, so whenever I can use my punches instead, I do!
I hope you enjoy this card!
Happy stampin and have a great day!

Fifth Ave. Floral in shades of baja & crumb cake

Before I get to today's post I just wanted to share with you what's going on over on my facebook page. I'm having a drawing for a 6 pack of handmade cards. The only thing you have to do is "LIKE" my facebook page. Then if you post to your wall that you like my page and suggest it to your friends, you'll get entered a 2nd time into the drawing for the cards. If you get this blog post by email, just click over to my blog and on the right hand side you'll see a angelariddellstamps facebook page button. Click on that and it'll take you to my facebook page!

Also just wanted to let you know that there are only 3 spots left for the birthday card class, so if you want a sport register soon!

Good morning to you! Last night I had a workshop with some of my favorite people. Our hostess had requested some projects geared toward children events that incoorperated owls into the projects! I think I successfully met her needs. I'll share those ideas with you in the next few days!
Today I have a card for you that uses the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set. I haven't played with this set in a LONG time and I"m not sure why, because I had a blast and it's easy to get a nice looking card, quickly with this set!
I made several cards with this stamp set and color combination as well as the same pieces of cardstock. The only thing I changed up, was the way I used the embellishments on the cards. I"m only going to share one of the cards with you though, because I'll be using the other cards for stamp club (which starts in April, so let me know if you would like to join us).
I would say that this card has a  vintage look to it and it's hard to see in the photo, but it has tons of shimmer to it as well!

I used our pearls which I think every stamper should have a pack of these! It's a great way to add that extra touch to your card in such a simple way! I also used the seam binding in crumb cake from the spring occasions catalog and I have to tell you, when I purchased it I wasn't sure if I would like it, but this is another must have! and I would probably recommend this color first, because it goes with so many other colors!

That's it for today.
Have a great day and happy stampin!

Bright, Cheery thinking of you - Sale-a-bration style

Hello everybody!
Today I have a sample for you of one of our sale-a-bration stamp sets. This card is bright and cheery and perfect for what I'll be using it for. A dear friend of mine, is going through A LOT in her life right now and I just wanted to send her a cheerful, thinking of you! I think encouraging people when they are down is so important! I had a rough week last week and received 2 very thoughtful cards and let me tell you what a difference it makes when you know that someone is thinking of you!
This card uses a bunch of our sale-a-bration products! The designer paper is from the the ice cream parlor designer pack and I love it so much! The ribbon and button are also a package that you can earn for free with a $50.00 purchase before the end of March! Also the floral stamp is from our sale-a-bration stamp set "punch bunch" all the stamps in this set coordinate with our fantastic punches! This particular image matches with our circle scallop punch.
One of my favorite items that Stampin UP carries are our wonderful markers! I love that you can color right on a stamp with them and how they allow you to have more then 1 color on a stamped image to make it look more realistic. I also love that the markers come in all of our wonderful colors, so they match with our cardstock, inks, designer papers and all of our embellishments!

The color combination used on this card is: melon mambo, whisper white, daffodile delight

Have a fantastic day and happy stampin!

Birthday card class flyer made in MDS!

Hi ladies,
Today I wanted to show you, something that I made in My Digital Studio today. It took all of maybe 10 mins. I like to make up nice looking, colored flyers for my upcoming classes, so today I made one for my Birthday card class coming up on April 21st. Spaces are filling up, so if you would like a spot, please rsvp soon! 
To make the flyer I used the FREE sale-a-bration MDS offering. Did you know that one of the items you can get for FREE with a $50.00 order during sale-a-bration was a My digital studio package that includes digital images of all of our sale-a-bration offerings? How cool is that! So what do you think? Have you played with MDS yet? Are you interested in taking a My digital studio class, where we would go over all the basics of MDS? If so, please let me know and if there is enough interest then I will do a class.

That's it for today. Have a great day and happy stampin!
