There is Stampin’ Up! twine and ribbon on the weekly deals right now! I love love adding twine to projects by wrapping the card or tying to a tag. Twine adds a lot of interest without adding very much bulk.  This week also features the Marina Mist 1/4″ Cotton ribbon. It is so easy to tie this 1/4″ Cotton ribbon and get a nice bow. If you ever tie bows, you know that it can sometimes be very difficult.

Handmade Birthday Card With The Lotus Blossom

I used a bit of the white twine to make this soft bow, but you could easily use the Old Olive Baker’s Twine. See all the items here by clicking here.

Have you seen the wonderful new Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack yet?  Here I will show you 2 different coloring techniques to use with this fabulous vellum. This vellum is one of the bonus Sale-A-Bration offerings that you can get FREE with a $50 Stampin’ Up! product purchase. Don’t miss the video below showing you how to do these two coloring techniques.

Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack

Marker Coloring Technique

Use markers to color the backside of the vellum patterns to add color to your vellum. I used the Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, and Calypso Coral markers to color these butterflies. Look how beautiful they are placed over the Typeset Designer Series paper.

Coloring With Ink and Sponge Daubers

For the second technique I chose the striped vellum. Use a sponge dauber and an ink pad to add the Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon to the back of this vellum. Just pick up some of the ink with the dauber and sponge it over the back. Vellum is a non-porous paper so it will take longer to dry. You can speed up the drying time with a heat tool.

I have also used some of the special baker’s twine and buttons from the In-Color Accessory pack from the Bonus Sale-A-Bration promotion. These products are only available through March 31st. Don’t miss out on your favorite choice.

So you think you have seen all the FREE 2015 Sale-A-Bration Products? Think again! Just for the month of March Stampin’ Up! has released 4 more new bonus Sale-a-Bration choices. This is the first time in the 16+ years I have been a demonstrator they have ever released additional products. Check out samples made with some of the new stamps and accessories below.

2015 Sale-A-Bration Free Stamps Stampin' Up!

“Thanks” With The Bokeh Technique

Here you can see the word “Thanks” from the For Being You new bonus Sale-A-Bration Stamp set stamped on a window. The word is floating over a panel inked with the Bokeh technique. This is the first time doing this popular technique for me so I took a few pictures to show the steps below.

2015 Sale-A-Bration Free stampin' Up! Stamps Bokeh technique

Transparency stencil with 4 circles

First I took a piece of thin window sheet or transparency and used the 4 smallest dies from the Circles Collection Framelits and cut out four holes. Leave enough space between the die cut circles so you can sponge ink without going over 2 holes. You cannot see the transparency sheet, but it is between the dies and acrylic plate. You could also use various sized punches.

2015 Sale-A-Bration Free stampin' Up! Stamps Bokeh technique

First I sponged a piece of paper with Pool Party ink and let it dry. With the circle stencil I made, I sponged Whisper White Craft ink on to the Pool Party piece. I made sure some of the various sized circles where overlapping. Let dry.

2015 Sale-A-Bration Free stampin' Up! Stamps Bokeh technique

The word “Thanks” is stamped on to a piece of Window Sheet with Black Stazon ink. I cut the front of the card base to 3 1/2″ and then affixed my stamped window sheet to the inside of the card front. I used another small piece of Whisper White card stock to cover from the bottom of the window sheet to the bottom of the card.

When the card is closed you can see the Pool Party Bokeh piece peeking through the window under the stamped word. The bottom picture shows the inside bottom of the card.

I love stamping products (Stampin’ Up! in particular) and I became a demonstrator so that I could purchase my products at a discount. I am very thankful that my business now does more than support my hobby and in fact I usually can purchase most of the products I want, but didn’t choose to purchase the Bow Builder Punch at first. As I started seeing the options with this punch I knew I had to give it a try.

Handmade Tag With Celebrate Today and The Bow Punch

I am surprised how much I like the Bow Builder Punch

I don’t know why this punch did not catch my attention at first because it was very popular right from the start with others, but now that it has been in my hands I love it! It is so easy to use it and such a cute addition to tags, cards, and projects.

Handmade Tag With Celebrate Today and The Bow Punch

Using Patterned Paper With The Bow Builder Punch

It is really easy to use either Designer Series Paper (patterned paper) or card stock with the Bow Builder Punch, but in these tags I used the Birthday Bash paper with the birthday tag and the Lullaby paper for the baby tag. .

Handmade Tag With Celebrate Today and The Bow Punch

To make the bow you punch the paper twice so you have to sets of the pieces. There are directions included, but it is very easy to form the two loops with the larger pieces and then assemble with the tails. The little rectangle is wrapped around the center. I see a video coming on!
