Epic Celebrations stamped set from Stampin' Up!

  • Epic Celebrations
  • Only days remain to place orders for free Sale-A-Bration selections

Sale-A-Bration Fun

Today's card uses one of the fun, free Sale-A-Bration Sets called Epic Celebrations.  It includes headphones, an electric guitar and these fun tennis shoes.  This is a great set for boy, girls, women or men depending on the colors you choose for your card and accents.  I also used elements from another Sale-Bration-Set, called Amazing You, which includes the fun starbursts I used on this card.   You can earn either of these sets free with a $50 order before March 31.            

I used a basecard of Dapper Denim, then a layer of Marina Mist, then a layer of Whisper White.  Then I stamped the starburst from Amazing You under the Whisper White banner with Dapper Denim ink.  I then used a gray watercolor pencil and lightly shaded the inside of each starburst lines to give the starbursts some depth.       

I stamped the sentiment from the Epic Celebrations set in Marina Mist on to the Whisper White Banner.  I stamped the shoes from the Epic Celebrations in Marina Mist and fussy cut them out of Thick Whisper White.  

I added a ribbon using the Pacific Point 1/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon.  I popped the shoes up on dimensionals and glued them to the banner.  I then added a few Glitter Enamel Dots from the Dapper Denim selection.  Fun!      

I keep looking at the card and keep thinking about things I could do differently.  I'll likely try a version coloring the tennis shoes.  I might try silver embossed star bursts.  I might try a Pacific Point basecard.  I love looking at my cards and know that I can try all kinds of different versions due to colors that coordinate across the Stampin' Up! line.

So much has happened over the past few weeks!  Over November 5 weekend, I drove from Houston to Kansas City for Stampin' Up! Nov 2016 OnStage.  We saw the new Occasions catalog coming out to customer Jan 4 along with the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  We made samples using new stamp sets and dies, swapped cards, and saw demos and more samples of the new sets from the Stampin; Up! Occasions catalog for 2017!

We made these cute Valentine samples.

Then we made these awesome birthday cards with a new die set and stamp set that I've fallen in love with:  The Balloon Adventures set and the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Dies.  

This is the front using new Party Animal Designer Series Paper

The display boards at the Stampin' Up! Nov 2016 OnStage events showcased the entire new Party Animal Suite, which will be available Jan 4, 2017.  I'm already making more samples with the early order demos who attended OnStage were able to place as one of the benefits of attending OnStage.  OnStage locations have already been announced  for April 8, 2017.  I'm trying to decide weather to attend San Diego, CA; Shreveport, LA; or Savannah Georga.  There are also OnStage local events planned for Minneaplis, MN and Richmond, VA as well as Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand...(hmm I've got a lot of American Express points accumulated and I've always wanted to visit New Zealand...  I'm glad I've got time to decide!)  Where do you plan to attend?
