Sale-a-bration begins in just FIVE DAYS stampers – FIVE DAYS until you get unlimited freebies on your orders – wahoo!!!

Today I am showcasing one of the exclusive Sale-a-bration Stamp Sets ALONG WITH a co-ordinating Punch PLUS an Embossing Folder – all three of which you can get for FREE from January 27th!

I made two sweet cards using the following fun new limited-time-available items – the Banner Blast Stamp Set, the Banner Punch and the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder…


Aren’t they sweet?  And a breeze to make!

The card base…is Primrose Petals cardstock that I cut to be 8″ x 4″ and then folded in the center to give me a 4″ square card front.

The white layers…I layered on a piece of Whisper White that measures 3 1/4″ square and  then cut another piece of Whisper White to be 3″ square which I then textured…

The texturing…was super easy to make using my Big Shot and the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder  – that random dotted look makes a perfect background for many occasions – AND looking at it, you could use it to make fabulous snow for cards & scrapbook pages!

The banners…I tied a piece of White Bakers Twine (pg 173) around that textured layer and then positioned my banner pieces just underneath it…

ALL of the stamps that I used on my cards are from the set Banner Blast – it is a set of 10 stamps that features 5 different patterns of banners, 2 banner sentiments (both of which I used on my cards) and 3 small accent stamps (including the heart & flower stamps I used)

And what makes using those banner shaped stamped images super easy is that you get to punch them out with the PERFECTLY co-ordinating Banner Punch – it takes seconds and gives such a professional look!


For finishing touches…I added a little bow to the center banner and Pearls to the flower centers and a Rhinestone Jewel to the ‘love’ sentiment…

Here is my ‘Hi’ card…I think it would be a sweet card to send to a friend…


And here is my ‘Love’ card…showing you what cute little Valentine’s cards you could make using this set too…


I can hardly wait for Sale-a-bration to begin – it’s my favorite time of the stampin’ year to stock up on my basics such as cardstock, envelopes & adhesives so that I get a bunch of freebies on my purchases!
