During the month of September, Stampin’ Up! is hosting a special promotion to encourage customers to place big orders – I LOVE those kinds of promotions. <3 For every order over $250, you can earn a pack of Dashing Along Designer Series Paper – an exclusive pack of gorgeous papers that pulls some of our favorite patterns from past papers and delivers them in a gorgeous combination of Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Whisper White. Here’s a look at these papers:
As we approach the end of September, it’s your last chance to earn this paper. Don’t miss out! I also want to remind you that the Bonus Coupons you may have earned in August ($5 coupons for every $50 you spent in August) will expire on Sunday. Don’t miss out on those freebies!
I’m featuring a gorgeous pattern from Dashing Along on today’s card for the FabFriday sketch challenge. Here’s my card:
And here’s the sketch for the FabFriday challenge that inspired my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- More About Dashing Along. How gorgeous are the patterns and colors in the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper?! Let me answer that question for you – it’s VERY gorgeous! As I mentioned above, this pack of papers pulls from familiar designs from the past. What a wonderful treat! Here’s a closer look at the colors and patterns in this incredible pack of papers:You can earn a pack of Dashing Along Designer Series Paper with a $250 order between now and Sunday. You’ll receive 4 sheets of three double-sided designs. That makes the patterns perfect for your Christmas card projects! I suggest you just put in two $250 orders so you can rack up two packs of this paper. Great tip, huh? 🙂
- Prettier Pines. I love the gorgeous pines from the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies. There are such great accents for Holiday cards. This FabFriday sketch includes little elements above and below the sentiment, and I instinctively reached for these dies (and they were a natural fit for the sentiment I stamped with the Christmas Pines stamp set and cropped with a gorgeous shape from the Foliage Frame Framelits Dies). Here’s a look at the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies: I placed my cropped pines on an old backing from a set of Stampin’ Dimensionals and painted them with my Wink of Stella brush. The waxy backing doesn’t “grab” the Wink of Stella, so the glittery ink stays on top of the sheet. That allows you to get more out of your ink – rather than just soaking it into a piece of scrap paper. 🙂 Here’s a closer look at the glittery pines on my card:
- A Little Shaded Spruce. While the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper includes Shaded Spruce as the paper’s rich green, the page I chose only features two shades of Cherry Cobbler. The pines (appropriately) look so gorgeous in Spruce. If you like this combination of Crumb Cake, Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Christmas Pines Papers: Dashing Along Designer Series Paper, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Shaded Spruce, Soft Suede, Thick Whisper White Inks: Cherry Cobbler Accessories: Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies, Foliage Frame Framelits Dies, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Banner Triple Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the FabFriday site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today!
