Sale-a-bration Celebration

Card made with Stampin'UP! sale-a-bration stamp set: Outlined Occasions. Made by StampLadyKatie
How do you spell celebrate?  At Stampin'UP! we spell it Sale-a-brate! Sale-a-bration is Stampin'UP!'s big once-a-year customer appreciation event. For every $50 of catalog merchandise you purchase during Sale-a-bration you can choose a FREE item from the Sale-a-bration catalog.

This card uses one of the FREE Sale-a-bration items: a stamp set called Outlined Occasions. I love coloring in the letters to match the papers on the project. The colors used here are: Tempting Turquoise, Lucky Limeade and Elegant Eggplant.

To make this card I cut a piece of paper 3" by 5-1/4". Using this as a base I glued on alternating strips of the colored paper. I wrapped the White Satin ribbon around this piece before adhering to the card base. Then I stamped the sentiment and colored it with markers. I also used some Dazzling Details along the dotted line in the sentiment.  BTW: Dazzling Details is quickly becoming a favorite product. This glitter glue in a squeeze bottle is so easy to use and it really dresses up a project.

What's your favorite item in the Sale-a-bration catalog?  My favorites are this set: Outlined Occasions and another set called Sprinkled Expressions - but I also like Fresh Vintage. Yesterday's post showed a card with Sprinkled Expressions. Did you see the red and black wedding card I made with Fresh Vintage? And the 2 valentines made with Outlined Occasions:  #1 and  #2. . . . . . . Truly they're all great -  its so hard to decide.  And remember you can see the Sale-a-bration catalog online HERE.

Did you get your FREE set yet?  There's still time. Sale-a-bration lasts through the end of March. You can even shop online HERE and have your order sent directly to your house.

Feel free to contact me with any questions
Happy Stamping
