Welcome to the Kre8tors February 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “Sale-A-Bration,” featuring projects highlighting the FREE Stampin’ Up! products you can earn with a qualifying order. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
Okay, I’m in love with this birthday card! Would you like to know why?
First of all, it’s for a man, and don’t we all need those? The cards, I mean!
Secondly, it has the cutest pair of tennis shoes from the new Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Epic Celebrations (page 12 in the catalog). By the way, I call all “sneakers” tennis shoes; always have, always will. They were easy to fussy cut, and I’m getting the hang of coloring with Stampin’ Blends (Light Night of Navy). I was even able to get between the laces with tiny little dots. I had to wear reading glasses though.
Thirdly, this True Gentleman Designer Series Paper (Occasions Catalog, page 45) is fabulous! Doesn’t it look good contrasted with white?
Fourthly, a nice lady contacted me about a card I made ages ago, using this design, asking for the measurements. It reminded me to use this design again. Here are the measurements:
Card Base: 5 1/2 X 4 1/4, DSP: 5 1/4 X 4, White: 4 1/2 X 3 1/4, DSP: 4 1/4 X 3, White: 3 1/2 X 2 1/4, DSP: 3 1/4 X 2.
Last, but not least, is the inside sentiment. When my demonstrator friend and I were looking at the catalog, we got the giggles, and couldn’t stop laughing.
So there you have it, Birthday Wit (Occasions Catalog, page 9) in Lemon Lime Twist ink!
Here’s an example of the FREE with purchase deal going on now.
If you purchased the True gentleman DSP (11.00), the Birthday Wit stamp set (19.00), Light and Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends (4.50 each), a package of Whisper White cardstock (8.00), and a pack of Dimensionals (4.00), for a total of $51.00, you would get the Epic Celebrations stamp set for free.
You’d be on your way to the creative world I’m living in. It’s so fun, I’m never turning back.
While you’re here, I’d like to share one more, similar card with you, a bit more feminine with Delightful Daisy DSP.
I made this card for my Mama, who passed away in May, 2016. She loved denim, and she loved shoes. She’s sitting with my daughter in a picture that was taken about 20 years ago. Check out her yellow tennis shoes!
She probably doesn’t need shoes in Heaven, but I know she loves this card I made for her. “Thinking of you” (Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set) is exactly what I do, every day.
