Story of Elegance

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope that you had a wonderful weekend.  I certainly did.  Now that the new week is here I decided to spend some time working with a couple of the products that can be earned FREE with a purchase of $50 or more.  How wonderful is it that you can buy what you love, to do what you love and get FREE stuff to do more of what you love?!  That’s pretty awesome and it’s exactly the what the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration is all about!

To create the cards for today, I used the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper which is FREE with a $50 purchase and the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and coordinating Lily Pad dies that are available as a set.  This set is FREE with a $100 purchase.  All the sentiments I used are from Sending You Thoughts stamp set.  This great little stamp set contains only sentiments and it’s also FREE with a $50 purchase.

I just have to say something about the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper before I move on,  This DSP is absolutely gorgeous! I’m delighted with it, and I haven’t even played with the beautiful patterns yet.  Take a closer look.

For today’s cards I wanted to create two simple cards using only Sale-A-Bration items, card stock and embellishments, and guess what?  That’s exactly what I did.  I love the “movement” of the solid sides of the papers, so I opted to start with these.  You can probably figure out exactly what I did by looking at the pictures, but if not, and you would like to know, please leave me a comment below.  I’m happy to share how I crafted them.

Well that’s it for today.  Thanks for stopping by!  I’ll be back again on Friday with more Sale-A-Bration to share.  Until then,
Live Graciously!
