So sweet and a perfect opportunity to break out Blendabilities Markers!  A Happy Thing stamp set will be one of many gifts available FREE for every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax) during Sale-A-Bration, one of the biggest Stampin’ Up! promotions of the year.  Sale-A-Bration starts January 6, 2015!

Take a video tour HERE sharing all my Stampin’ Up! sneak peek products.


My design was inspired by this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO376).


  • Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Markers were used to add colorful  painted effects.  Blendabilities Markers (individual colors in an assortment of  three coordinating shades) will be gift options during Sale-A-Bration.

  • The frame began as a 3 1/2″ square of Old Olive cardstock.  I cropped the center using Stampin’ Up! Circles Framelits Dies, a Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and Magnetic Platform.  Snippets of Stampin’ Dimensionals prop up the frame for a 3-D effect.
