The guy in the brown truck dropped by yesterday with a special box for us,  er me.

It had one of the two new stamp sets that you can get for this last half of Sale-A-Bration.  So of course, we had to use it!

Which one do you think we got first?  (click for a full sized picture.)


Soon we’ll have them all, but we started off with Party Pants because a dog cannot have enough greetings.  (Because you humans don’t always understand it when we bark!)

Thinking of You Card Idea

We didn’t expect this to quite come out this color, but that’s as close as we could figure for live starfish.  Here’s a list of colors that we used:

  • Sahara Sand card stock & ink
  • Early Espresso card stock & ink
  • Pink Pirouette ink
  • Blushing Bride ink
  • Calypso Coral ink

Do you like how we added that little doily after we dredged it through the Sahara Sand ink?  Vroom!  Vroom!  I thought it made the star look like it was shooting.

Thinking of You Card Idea

I try to make sure that Ann doesn’t get stuck in a hole making the same cards all the time.  This color combo and star concept was way out of the box for us.

I guess I could’ve had Ann sponge the edges, but there’s a lot of ink on the card already.  And we used THREE stamp sets.  We try to use just one or two.  (I insisted on all those spots from the Timeless Textures stamp set in the Occasions Catalog to resemble sand.)

But the Party Pants set was free with a $50 order so I figured we don’t have to count that one.

Anyone can be creative with a ton of stamps.  You don’t have to have a lot of stamps to be a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, but after 17 years for Ann (and 10 for me), we’ve got them to use.  Isn’t that what you do when you can get things at a discount?  You buy them!  Right?
