Bring on the Cake!

Mmmm...I could go for some cake right now. It would go so well with my coffee...

The card today combines the Birthday Bakery stamp set with the Bring on the Cake stamp set. The Birthday Bakery set is a level 1 hostess set which means if you host a party with sales of at least $150 you would get this for FREE! The Bring on the Cake set is from the Ocassions Mini Catalog. It is a huge birthday set with lots of great stamps. It was the first thing I ordered from the mini.

The cake images were colored in with Stampin' Write markers. If you don't have these you should get them! I love to color in my stamped images to make them match perfectly with my paper! Because they have dual tips, you can ink up your stamps or paint images with the paint brush tip and write a greeting with the fine tip side.

Springtime Vintage - Occasions Mini Catalog

Stampin' Up! Springtime Vintage Designer Paper

What did you order from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog? I ordered alot! But one of my favorite items is the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper.

I love the colors and patterns — so soft and Spring-like. I bet all of you up north could use a dose of Spring right now.

Stock Up! It's Sale-A-Bration!

Because it's Sale-A-Bration time, I wanted to take advantage of all the free stamp sets. So, in addition to the new items in the Occasions Mini Catalog, I stocked up on paper, envelopes, cello bags, glue refills and ink refills. If I'm going to need it, I ordered it!

And guess what?  I got 4 FREE Sale-A-Bration Stamp Sets. I love the FREE Sale-A-Bration items that Stampin' Up! offers. I use them all the time. In fact, the stamp set I used for today's card was from last year's Sale-A-Bration!
