Before I got involved in my Valentine’s Day and February Birthday cards, I started to show off my favorite Sale-a-Bration products. Those are the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set and the Small Bloom Punch. My first card in which I used these products is here. Today I’m sharing one that features another way of displaying a sequence of the lovely little flowers.
CASEing from a Top Demonstrator
I copied this card, as well as the other two that I’ll be sharing this week, from cards that other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators designed. I needed to do a last minute class using the stamp set and punch, and I’d needed to have 5 projects for the class. As this request included a best friend and great customer, off I went to look for ideas. As I’m sure many of you do when this happens, I logged into Pinterest. Within minutes, I’d found several wonderful projects, and off I went to CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone) them all.
Once I had this card made, I went back to the original to see who had made the original design. Wow! Right away I’d found one made by Sam Hammond Donald, aka “Pootles,” one of the top demonstrators in the world. I couldn’t go wrong there, could I?
My Take on Her Design
Usually when I CASE a card, I put my own personal touch on it. But overall, this card was perfect. Nonetheless, I did want to make it my own. So I chose my own colors. The flowers are Pacific Point, Melon Mambo and Highland Heather. The green accents and the sentiment are Call Me Clover. Finally, I used Daffodil Delight for the little flowers all over the card!
Did I Mention That They’re FREE?
Oh, yes! You can get the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set FOR FREE with a $50 purchase of any Stampin’ Up! products that you buy through their website. And you can get the Small Bloom Punch FOR FREE with a $100 purchase! As you look over the other projects I’ve used with these FREE Sale-a-Bration products, you’ll see just how versatile these are. Just buy the papers, stamp pads, an acrylic block or two and some ribbons and embellishments and you’ll have purchased enough for both products FOR FREE in no time! And you’ll have enough in the way of supplies to makes dozens and dozens of cards!
That’s a happy thought! And those cards don’t have to be all the same. Check out my blog posts over the next week to see some other ideas for using the stamps and the punch.
