I really love the Champagne Glimmer Paper that is only available for a few more days. I've added it in a few places on this page (the thin strip along the top, the little circle behind the small butterfly just under that and finally along the strip of paper on the bottom left of the page). The beautiful Designer Series Paper is called Twitterpated and the flowers were die-cut with the Floral Frames Framelits. The butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits.
If you're wondering what's going on in the photos, my husband and I are throwing a coin over our left shoulder into the Trevi Fountain - supposedly ensuring our return to Rome someday. This actually worked in our case as we returned to Rome 3 years after these photos were taken - meaning that I'm really behind in my scrapbooking!

Only one more sleep before Sale-a-Bration starts. Receive a free gift with every $100 you spend from now until 22nd March. The cards above are another sneak peak of one of the stamp sets that you can choose with your order of $100 or more. Once again, I've used the Festival of Prints DSP stack, along with some 1/2" Seam Binding ribbon in Cherry Cobbler and Baja Breeze and some basic Rhinestone jewels.
On the case that I made for these cards in the top photo, I used the Champagne Glimmer paper and the Mixed Medley stamp set. All of these items (DSP stack, Champagne Glimmer paper and the Mixed Medley stamp set will be retiring at the end of this month).

This card was also made using the Feeling Sentimental stamp set from Sale-a-Bration and the Festival of Prints DSP stack. The beautiful clear buttons are from the Vintage Faceted Designer collection.

Here is another sneak peak - the focal image is from the Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Feeling Sentimental (available from this Tuesday!). I always struggle with cards for men, but this came together quite easily once I placed the patterned paper on the front. This paper is from the Holiday Catalogue's Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack and is only available until 31 January. The button is from the Designer Naturals collection. I've used Early Espresso Bakers Twine to adhere it to the card.

I CASEd this card from one I received for my birthday from the lovely and very talented Marelle Taylor. When I received it, I new I had to try making a card just like it. This one uses different Patterned Paper, but otherwise, it's very similar. I've used two new products which will be available to you for Sale-a-Bration from 22 January 2013. The first is the Petite Curly Label Punch (see the shape of the Designer Series Paper). The other is the stamp set that was made especially for this punch called Pretty Petites. It's the greeting on the front, which I've coloured using Stampin' Markers.
The Designer Series Paper is retiring at the end of this month, so if you like it, order now by contacting me. It's called Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack and includes 48 sheets at 11.4cm x 16.5cm for just $11.95.

The background on this card is from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper stack. This stack retires at the end of this month, so if you don't want to miss out, order before then.
Everything else coordinates beautifully, as only Stampin' Up! products do! The flowers were stamped from the Daydream Medallion stamp set and cut using the coordinating Floral Frames Framelits Dies; the butterfly was stamped using Papillon Potpourri and punched out using Elegant Butterfly. Then there's the greeting which was stamped using Itty Bitty Banners and cut using the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. To finish, I put rhinestone jewels on each petal of the largest flower.
Colours used are Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla.
