Happy Birthday Cupcake

Stampin' Up! Birthday Wishes For You with Party Hat Birthday, Picture Perfect Birthday paper, and Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon and Stampin' Blends - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I have a fun birthday card for you using new Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration goodies. The big Happy Birthday stamp is awesome! That’s from Birthday Wishes for You, and I love it because you have to do very little else to complete your card. I colored my stamped image with the Bermuda Bay and Pool Party Blends (light and dark of both). The tiny cupcake uses the Party Hat Birthday bundle, and I colored that with Bermuda Bay Light and both Pool Party Blends.

That gorgeous confetti looks so life-like, but that is paper! It’s from the Picture Perfect Party paper stack. Heart eyes emoji, y’all. Love this paper. The ribbon is FREE Sale-A-Bration ribbon. It’s 1/8″ Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon and comes in a combo pack with 3/8″ Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon and 1/4″ Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon. You get five yards of each color. You can’t buy this ribbon, you can only earn it with a $50 (pre-tax and -shipping) order.

Coming soon! Stampin' Up! handmade wedding cake card using Cake Soiree, Sweet Cake Framelits, and Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack - FREE item in Sale-A-Bration 2018 - starts January 3 - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This month, our theme for the Blog Highlight is Flowers. I was happy to see the theme, because I have wonderful new stuff to play with from the upcoming Occasions catalog. I’m showing the Sweet Soiree suite, featuring the Cake Soiree bundle. The background papers are actually cards from the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack, which you will only be able to get for FREE during Sale-A-Bration (January 3 – March 31, 2018) with a $50 order. This is one of the most beautiful Memories & More products we’ve ever had and is perfect for making quick and easy cards.

No, I’m serious! This card was quick and easy! Okay, quick-ish. But easy! I glued down the first M&M card. Then I popped the second M&M card up on Dimensionals. I stamped the gorgeous flowered cake from Cake Soiree in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the matching framelit. I colored the flowers with Powder Pink, Old Olive, Marina Mist, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers. I painted Wink of Stella on the white top of the cake, and the top of the bottom layer of the cake, though you can’t see it in the photos. It’s really pretty and sparkly, though! I cut the cake stand out of Champagne Foil with the Sweet Cake framelits — isn’t it fantastic?? I love that intricate detail.

I stamped the sentiment, from the same stamp set/bundle, in Rich Razzleberry and punched it out with the Classic Label punch. I finished the card off with some Calypso Coral ribbon. I love how flawlessly this whole suite coordinates, and I can’t wait to show you even more projects using this suite!

For the inside, I stamped more stamps from Cake Soiree in Rich Razzleberry and colored the images in with Powder Pink and Marina Mist. The strip of paper down the left side is from the Sweet Soiree specialty designer series paper. You are going to LOVE this paper!

Falling in Love with Special Reason

Stampin' Up! Falling in Love designer series paper and Special Reason bundle - new in the Occasions 2017 catalog, available Jan 4 - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Stampin’ Up!’s new Falling in Love designer series paper is stunning by itself, but paired with the new Special Reason bundle, it slays.

Stampin' Up! Falling in Love designer series paper and Special Reason bundle - new in the Occasions 2017 catalog, available Jan 4 - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Look at that GORG paper!! Lookit! I seriously haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since I got it in my preorder last week! Every pattern is just stunning. I have a feeling I’ll end up buying more than one pack of this stuff. I mean, it’s just paper, and I shouldn’t be that excited about paper, right? Nope, WRONG, just wait until you see it in person. So much bokeh, so much sparkle. It’s delicious (I wanted to say “delish”, but I already said “gorg”, so I maybe need to rein myself in.

That flower is die-cut using the Stylish Stems framelits dies. Don’t you love that it cuts the flower negative?? So unique and fun! And it really shows off the paper and makes such a statement on your card.

I made this card during my weekly-ish Facebook live video. Watch it if you’d like to see how I made my card. The paper and the bundle will be available on January 4 when the Occasions catalog starts. Y’all are going to love this catalog! And Sale-A-Bration starts the same day, so it’s double awesome. If you haven’t ordered from me in the past year and would like to get your free Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure from me, sign up, and I will send you one.

True story: I didn’t realize there was some drama going on outside the craft room during my live video. While I was filming, my son started throwing up everywhere. Good thing I got up to close the door! [Yep, it went through the whole family, and my life this week has been showers, baths, laundry, and puke. Hooray.] If you haven’t liked my Facebook page, make sure to do so, and turn on Notifications so you get all the latest and greatest.
