I know that Sale-A-Bration is over but I just have to share this fun card with you! This lovely layered look works with lots of different stamped images. If you don’t have the Sale-A-Bration Friendly Hello, that’s okay! If you do, then I hope this card inspires you to create with it!
This look is super cool and it’s super easy to do! That’s my kind of WOW card! For this one, I would say all of the coloring is the hardest part, LOL! You all know I am not a huge fan of lots of coloring!
I started off with a piece of Basic Black cardstock as the card base. Then I cut 2 piece of Basic White measuring 5-1/4″ x 4″. One is for the card front and the other one is for the inside of the card. Using Memento Black Ink, I stamped the greeting in the center and then added flowers all around it and to the edge of the cardstock. Then, it’s time to color. I actually colored after I cut the circle but I think it would probably be easier to color first.
Once you are done coloring, simply cut out the greeting with the Layering Circles Dies. Adhere the rectangle to the card front, be sure it is right side up so that the greeting circle lines up with the flowers and the greeting isn’t upside down. Then die cut out the scallop circle in Basic Black cardstock and layer the greeting on top. Then just like a puzzle piece, place this layer over the center of the card! How amazing is that?!?! Simple and fabulous!
The Calming Camellia Stamp Set is an exclusive stamp set during Sale-A-Bration for orders of $350 or more. This can be a single order or a few orders gathered together!
This card is super simple but does require a lot of die cutting! This card uses the Scallop Contour Dies and I am LOVING those lately! The little detailed scallop for each one makes it super fun to layer. I die cut 4 scallops for this card – 3 for the front and 1 for the inside!
You could mix up the colors or go for a monochromatic look like I did! I used Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride cardstock. The ink is Melon Mambo!
On the inside, I stamped some more fun but I will say that it makes the area for the greeting rather small. When I created this card on video, I actually stamped the curly cues on the Basic White card base rather than the scalloped die cut and I LOVE that look. You can check out the video tutorial here!
You have less than 2 weeks left to get this beautiful Calming Camellia Stamp Set so you can recreate this card! Click the supplies used below to get started! What color would you use?!?!?
One of the options for a $100 order is the Friendly Hello Bundle which includes a stamp set and 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper! I love the pastel yet bright colors and of course it’s FLOWERS! <3 I created this fun friendly birthday card in both Pale Papaya and Fresh Freesia!
I honestly am not sure which color I prefer the most! I really love both of them and had fun using this designer paper! Also, I love the fact that I created the same card with multiple sheets in the paper pack and got a similar look. Woot woot!
This card uses a regular card base of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ but rather than just folding it in half, I folded a bit from both sides. The left side is 3-1/4″ and the right side is 1″. On the left I added a piece of the designer paper (3″ x 5-1/4″) and on the right I stamped a greenery image from the stamp set. The image was stamped in the same color as the card base for a subtle look!
For the greeting, I used the Scallop Contour Dies for that adorable dotted scallop retangle! Precious!!! The greeting from the Friendly Hello Stamp Set fits perfectly in that die! I added a little loop of ribbon on one end and added it to the card front hanging off a bit. When I have a piece hanging off like this I like to use Tear & Tape! Then I finished it off with some jewels!!!
On the inside of the card, I stamped the floral image in Memento Black and colored the flower in with Stampin’ Blends!

You all know I LOVE flowers when it comes to stamping. What about animals?!? Are you a big fan or not? I do thing the Awesome Otter Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set is pretty cute and it’s FREE with a $50 order!
Come on, you can’t tell me that that face isn’t adorable!!!! And the Party Hat!!! I love it! I also will say that I don’t think this card is specific to really little kids either! What do you think?! Let me know in the comments below! I was inspired to create this card because of a swap card I received from Laura Mulligan so shout out to her! Thank you!
For this card, I started with a Thick Basic White card base and stamped the party hat all over on the top in Pool Party Ink. Next, I added a strip of the Sunshine & Rainbows Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper. Then I stamped the greeting on the corner of a strip of Basic White, added more Designer Paper and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the focal point, I die cut some of the Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Paper. You can use whichever size circle you would like. Then I stamped the adorable otter onto a piece of Basic White in Memento Black Ink. After coloring him with Stampin’ Blends, I used that same circle die and cut him out. This gives that same rounded look on the bottom. For the top half, I fussy cut out the otter and layered it onto the designer paper circle! For the party hat, I simply stamped it onto some of the designer paper in Memento Ink and then fussy cut it out! This circle was then added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
If you need just a general #happymail card, you can always change up the greeting to this one! OH and don’t forget the final touch of Iridescent Rhinestones for some bling!

I make a LOT of birthday cards for those of all ages and while I love flowers and nature, I thought I would mix it up a little. The Senior Years Stamp Set is super cute and has great greetings for birthday and even retirement greetings!
You might remember that this look is similar to those I posted on Tuesday! That is because it is the exact same layout and dimensions just with a different stamp set. I used the Senior Years Stamp Set and colored in with Stampin’ Blends!
MAJOR QUESTION: When making these cards, I couldn’t help but feel like I needed to color the person as if they were the recipient getting the card. Now that is in no way correct because not everyone has this hair cut or would wear a purple dress. Then I feel like will the person getting this card think, does she think that looks like me?!?!? Or will they just think this is a cute card?!?!? Let me know in the comment below!
This greeting for the inside of the card is AMAZING! I love it. Honestly as I have gotten older, I have started using the number of candles for both numbers. So rather than adding 31 candles to a cake, I would add 3 in a row and then 1 spaced over from that to represent 31. After all 31 candles could create a cake going up in flames and that would be a tragedy. LOL
Here is the guy version of this card! I just had so much fun with this card style and getting masculine birthday card, feminine birthday cards and then all those beautiful butterfly cards out of it! If you would like to recreate these Senior Years cards, check out the supplies listed below and don’t forget that every $50 earns you a Sale-A-Bration item! Woot Woot!
One of the Sale-A-Bration items that you can earn for FREE with a $50 order is the Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper! This paper is classic! Perfect for backgrounds, to stamp over the top, and so much more! I create the same card with each sheet from this paper pack just with the different colors.
It was super simple to cut all the same pieces and just use the different inks! The colors were easy to pick because I just used the ones listed on the paper pack! Pick your favorite stamp set and greeting and then it’s all about assembly!
The colors I used are Balmy Blue and Misty Moonlight, Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo, Bumblebee and So Saffron, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party, and Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. The card base measures 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Next, I cut the Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper first at 4″ and then I cut that 4″ x 6″ piece down to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the card front. With the leftover 4″ x 3/4″ piece I used on the inside of the card as a little decoration to pull it all together! The 2″ x 6″ piece I will use for another project!
For the focal point, I cut the coordinating cardstock color into 3-1/4″ x 2-3/4″ pieces. Finally, I cut Basic White measuring 3″ x 2-1/2″ for the front and 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside. Stamp and assemble is all there is left! I used the Amazing Silhouettes Stamp Set for the butterfly and the greetings are from the Special Moments Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set! I stamped the greeting in Basic Gray Ink!
These cards could have a large variety of greetings like thinking of you, birthday, sympathy, and hello. The perfect card style to create a stash of cards. There are 48 sheets in the Designer Series Paper Pack. I created 48 cards and still have that 2″ x 6″ strip to create another 48 cards! How amazing is that?!?

This would be a fabulous little gift to give a neighbor, co-worker, teacher, or friend! The little cards are 3″ x 6″ of Misty Moonlight with a 2-3/4″ square of the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper on the front. Then using some scraps of the designer paper and Basic White, I created the greeting. The greetings, stars, and presents are all from the Penguin Place Stamp Set! I stamped the images in Fresh Freesia and Misty Moonlight!
The little acetate box just has more designer paper wrapped around it and then one of the polar bears fussy cut out. How cute is he?!?! There are many images you could fussy cut out of the paper to add as your focal point!

How often do you treat yourself to something wonderful?!?! It might be ice cream or a massage or a nap or maybe a new purse or outfit!!! No matter what it is be sure to do it as often as you can because you deserve it! 🙂
I wanted to create a card with the Sale-A-Bration Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper that wasn’t winter or penguins! Here is what I came up with and I love it!!! This shows you that this paper can be used all year long for any occasion. I think this makes a fabulous birthday card but it would work for a baby card too!
I started with a Misty Moonlight card base and then added on some Penguin Playmates Designer Paper (2-1/2″ x 4″) and Soft Sea Foam cardstock (2-3/4″ x 4″)! If you would like an even split you could always do that but I sort of like the uneven look where the cardstock is bigger than the designer paper. Next, I layered together more Penguin Playmates Designer Paper (2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″) onto Misty Moonlight cardstock (2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″). This layer is added to the card front flat as well because I popped up the focal point with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
Using the Scalloped Contour Dies, I die cut a rectangle in Basic White and stamped the greeting in Misty Moonlight Ink. Then I stamped the ice cream from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set in Soft Sea Foam onto Soft Sea Foam cardstock and punched it out with the coordinating punch! For the cone, I stamped off once with Cinnamon Cider and then onto the cardstock with the triangle. For the waffle cone lines, I went with full strength Cinnamon Cider! I added this to the left of the greeting on the card front and finished it off with some Playing with Patterns Resin Dots!
On the inside of the card, I took a piece of Basic White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped Happy Birthday in Misty Moonlight Ink. Then I took some of the dots and stamped them in Soft Sea Foam. All of the images are from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set! I love it!!! If you would like to recreate this card and don’t have all of the supplies, check them out below. Go on, treat yourself and have fun!!! Don’t forget it’s Sale-A-Bration still too so Stampin’ Up will treat you too!
It’s a Sheep Party for my Birthday!!!! My birthday was actually this past weekend but I like to celebrate all month long. Today is the last day of my birthday month. Lucky for you Sale-A-Bration continues through the end of September!!!
I really love Z fold Cards because they show off so many layers and fun just like these cute sheep! They are totally having fun! I used the Counting Sheep Stamp Set which is a Sale-A-Bration FREE Item and the coordinating Sheep Dies are ALSO a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! Woot Woot! That means if you spend $100 or 2 orders of $50 during Sale-A-Bration, you can select these!
I started with a Pacific Point card base measuring 11″ x 4-1/4″ and folded it in half at 5-1/2″. Then I took the card front and folded it back in half to create the Z (at 2-3/4″). Next, I stamped one sheep onto a piece of Basic White (4″ x 5-1/4″) in Memento Black Ink and added it to the inside of the card. I also stamped another sheep onto a piece of scrap Basic White and die cut it out. There are 3 sheep to pick from so have fun with it! I colored the legs, ears, and face with Ivory Stampin’ Blends and the hooves with Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends!
The front panel of the card has a layer of Basic White (2-1/2″ x 4″) and then layer of Granny Apple Green (2-1/4″ x 3-3/4″). Using the grass stamp from the Counting Sheep Stamp Set, I stamped randomly all over in Granny Apple Green! This just adds a little more fun to card! For the greeting, I used the Double Oval Punch and added it to the card with adhesive only on the left hand side so it could hang off a bit.
TIP: The dies come with a balloon and a flag! To reduce die cutting all day long, I die cut both of them at the same time in Real Red scraps. Some of my cards had a flag in the sheep’s hand and other’s had a balloon! Two for the crank of one! 😉 LOL
Check out all the supplies I used below so you can create a Sheep Party card for your next birthday celebration!! Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration ends September 30th and these freebies are while supplies last!!!
There are only 3 days left of Sale-A-Bration….including TODAY! Sunday, February 28th is the final day to enjoy free goodies with every $50 order. The other awesome thing is that so far none of the Sale-A-Bration items are sold out which is AMAZING!
Here I created a fun Gate Fold Card using the Touch of Ink Stamp Set! This set is one of the $100 Level Sets that you can earn for Free with Sale-A-Bration! A Touch of Ink Stamp Set has been the most popular item redeemed so far!
I started with a Night of Navy card base (4-1/4″ x 11″) and scored it at 2-3/4″ from either end. This creates that gate fold! Then I cut out all of the layering pieces which are all the same size….the right panel, left panel, and focal point that overlaps! This makes cutting and measuring a breeze. The solid cardstock layer is 2-1/2″ x 4″. Then the Paper Blooms Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper (and Basic White for the center piece) measure 2-1/4″ x 3-3/4″.
This card uses the back side of the designer paper shown above and the butterfly from the Touch of Ink Stamp Set! Stamp, embellish and assemble! There are so many fun looks that you can create with this set! TIP: Be sure when adhering the focal point that you only add adhesive to the left hand side so you don’t seal your card closed! 🙂
Next, on the inside of the cards, simply stamp the outline image of the same one that is on the front! Simple and fabulous! I love how you can mix and match the colors, designer paper, images, and greetings for an array of different cards! It makes it super versatile!
