WOW!  What a busy, wild, nutty, fun day I had yesterday, the first day of the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Promotion.  It’s evident you are really excited about the new Occasions Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration free gifts you receive for every $50 you spend (excludes shipping and tax).  Many of you have decided to get the best deal of all, the specially priced Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit.

Today’s card highlights oodles of new and free Sale-A-Bration products.  I have added an asterisk (“*”) after each Sale-A-Bration offering so you know what you can earn free with a qualifying order.  Learn more about the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion.


  • Credit for the sentiment goes to the Elementary Elegance* stamp set.  The font is beautiful for a simple card with a vintage spin.  It’s cropped with the Stampin’ Up! Extra Large Oval Punch.
  • This card could easily translate to wedding, thank you and more with a simple change of sentiment.
  • I love the sophisticated look of the Stampin’ Up! Large Pearl Basic Jewels, new in the Occasions Mini Catalog.
  • The Stripes* and Designer Frames* (oval) Textured Impressions Embossing Folders were used to add yummy texture.  I first used the oval folder to create the dotted design and then cropped it with the smaller of the Labels Framelits Dies used.   I was so excited to discover how well they complement each other!

  1. I too love what you did with the embossing folders and those framelits…just lovely. (and thanks for taking a picture with my friend Stefanie at leadership)

  2. Julie Trevett-Smith

    Gorgeous card Mary! I love everything about it especially how you layered the embossed framelits. The pearls and a perfectly placed crown are great finishing touches. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Mary, your card is awesome. I love the colors and the way you used the framelit with the Designer EB Frame, can’t wait to give it a try. I’ve been unable to use the EB Frame because it keeps leaving marks around the folder…do you have a WOW video on how to use it and not get the lines around it? I would love to know.
    Hugs Jan
