My Mom’s birthday is tomorrow. If you’ve followed me long enough, then you know Mom loves blue flowers (blue flowers are a birthday and Mother’s Day tradition). My friend, Donna Mikasa, is hosting the sketch challenge this week at the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge, and I couldn’t love it more. There are so many ways to interpret a sketch and make it your own, but I loved the simplicity of her sketch so much that I simply followed it to make a card I can be happy with. Here’s my card for Mom and for this week’s CTS challenge:
- Happy Birthday to You. Sale-a-Bration is Stampin’ Up!’s annual earnings promotion. There are lots of exclusive products you can choose from with every $50 you spend during the three-month sale. One of the great products you can earn is Happy Birthday to You, a cling mount stamp set that’s full of beauty and joy. Here’s a look at the gorgeous cake and fun sentiments in Happy Birthday to You:The sentiment on my card is a from the must-have Peaceful Moments stamp set, available by itself or as part of the Peaceful Moments Bundle. So many great sentiments in this set! Here’s a look:
- Coordination Product Release. My colorful cake is cropped with the Birthday Dies, part of an upcoming promotion you’ll want to study hard. Starting in February, Stampin’ Up! is kicking off a Coordination Product Release during which you can buy dies and papers that coordinate with items found in this year’s Sale-a-Bration brochure and January – June 2020 Mini Catalog. Demonstrators can buy these items now (and even add them to their Starter Kit when they sign up). Here’s a look at the Birthday Dies: The stamp set is wonderful, but the dies really add to the versatility and usefulness of the stamp set. Love that! You can see all of the items offered in the Coordination Product Release that kicks off in February here:There are some incredible offerings in this two page release. The new items have changed my mind about how much I need some things from Sale-a-Bration and the Mini Catalog. How about you? Incentive to plan ahead? ♥ I’ll be sharing more about this product release later this week. What fun!
- Soft Color Combination. I knew I wanted Seaside Spray flowers – so soft, so beautiful. As I thumbed through my Stampin’ Blends, I was immediately drawn to Light So Saffron for a vanilla buttercream frosting on my cake. If you like this color combination of So Saffron, Seaside Spray and Smoky Slate, please save this for future reference:
Stamp Sets: Happy Birthday to You, Peaceful Moments Papers: 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (Seaside Spray), Smoky Slate, So Saffron, Seaside Spray, Thick Whisper White Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin’ Blends (So Saffron, Seaside Spray, Mint Macaron, Smoky Slate) Accessories: Birthday Dies, Layering Ovals Dies, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the CAS(E) This Sketch site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
