Happy Tuesday and I bet that this card is going to make many of you smile….I sure hope so! Even if you do not like animals and more specifically chickens…this stamp set is a “smile ~ laugh out loud” kinda card!
Tomorrow is a special day as it is FINALLY the day that the NEW Occasions Catalog goes LIVE and also the BEST time of the year with Stampin’ Up! ~ Sale-a-bration! (read to the end ), you’ll be happy!
I realize that many of you might be like I was when I first started as a Stampin’ Up! customer, I had NO CLUE what Sale-a-Bration meant…well let me tell you….it is the “sweetest time of the year” going through the end of March and with every order of $50.00 you will be able to pick a FREEBIE 🙂
This stamp set is one of the FREEBIES….(I can guarantee you that there will be a BUNCH of CHICKEN FLOCKING out of Utah from Stampin’ Up!~ it is just soooo darn cute!)
This is just one of those cards that can be used for so many different uses….just a thinking of you, a thank you…..a pick me up laugh . When you look at this card you can clearly see that is is soooooooo basic but it all works!
Please do not underestimate the power of our simple tools we have….I have used the stitched framelits (and YES, I will give you a “heads up” when they are back in stock) and also the layering Square Frameits. You just cannot beat the classics!
The REAL key and FUN to this card was that I used the New Watercoloring Pencils that will be available tomorrow. They are great and the price is also great. I was super happy that Stampin’ Up! came out with these as it is simple….we needed them.
You can use the Aqua Painters (my friends) and also the Blender Pens (my new friends that I am giving my best try at). It is FUNNY – most people are more comfortable with the blender pens….it is simple, I just never started with them but I am trying!
I think that this turned out to be a fun card just using big and bold colors to make a whimsical card that will make you smile. Shapes work, each and everytime. Sometimes I think we all work TOO HARD on trying to get it “just right” – look how easy this is!
Please do not forget that today is the LAST day for you to order from the Holiday Catalog. If those Merry Mice are not at your home, they need to be as they are just the cutest! Also….if you do not have the LAYERING CIRCLES FRAMELITS – not only do you need them but today is the LAST day that they are 50% off. You can see the impact of today’s card with the squares….TRUST ME – shapes are our friends!
This past Holiday catalog I think has been the best one since I started Stampin’ Up! I will miss it but I am thrilled that many of the items will be carried over….now that makes me happy!
The new catalog goes live a 2 a.m. Mountain Time….the 1st person that orders $50+ or more will win a set of the watercoloring pencils from me!!!!! Let’s see who the early bird is!
