Don't twist my arm! I have a free gift for everyone!

 Free stamps for you! And free stamps for you! And free stamps for you!

Yes, I feel like Oprah! I am giving away stamps and DSP (designer series paper) and Vellum Stacks to EVERYONE!

Because it is Sale-a-Bration season here in Stampin' Up! The time of year when everyone gets to shop for fantastic items in our big beautiful catalog and the seasonal Occasions catalog, then for every $50 you spend, you get an extra free selection from the Sale-a-Bration catalog!

And there are some really fantastic choices this year, with some new and promising options coming out February 16!

Today I am sharing some of the cards I have been using this January at Stamp Club and classes.

The first one is from Stamp Club. Members used the Big Shot to emboss the front panel and to die cut the heart and flowers. We used a new tool, the die brush and sheet of foam are awesome for removing fancy die cuts from the metal dies that cut them on the Big Shot. If you haven't had the opportunity to try this yet, come on over, it is low tech, but amazing!

Up next is a peek-a-boo card from Monday night's class. The same heart is die cut from the pink glimmer paper and adhered to Color Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Paper in black. Ooo-la-la, so fancy! We die-cut a heart shaped hole in the front and split the sentiment inside and outside. Cute, right?!  The Balloon Celebrations stamp set offers Champagne, Coffee, Hot Chocolate, Tea and a couple other options to go with the "drink" sentiment. So cute!

You may have seen this gorgeous gold card on Facebook over the weekend. I had to take it apart and re-assemble with a different design, to hide the glue. This version has thin gold strips with sticky strip on the top of the vellum. There is nothing that can go under vellum and be invisible! So don't bother buying special vellum glue, it just doesn't really work! There is glue under the ribbon and I could have put some under the flower and fern, but the top edge needed to be secured. So gold strips did the job beautifully, and sticky strip or the new Stampin' Up Tearable Tape adhesive will be just what you need.

Weekly Deals have been posted online, and these are winners! I am definitely placing an order on Friday, if you are on the fence, just shoot me an email and I can push you off. It is totally worth joining in with a workshop order and saving on postage. . . Island Indigo ribbon for $4.50 and clothespins for $3.50? Definitely! Add an embossing folder for under 6 bucks? Why not? Go ahead, throw in the Venetian trim, it is gorgeous. I'm not sure about those bears. . .the heart, fish, and baby bear are cute, I'm starting to see the cuteness. . .

Happy Stamping!
