I just love the stamps and accessories you can get free this year from Stampin’ Up! during their biggest sale of the year.

And with this project, you can pick to get one or both items free.  The project will work well either way!

Can you help us decide which one you like better?

We’re on LIVE today at 1 pm Pawcific Time!  We’ll be talking about stepping up craft room organization AND sharing a Valentine Box on Facebook and on You Tube so you can pick where you want to watch!

First, the naked one.  Naked?  Yep.

The free item on this one – and really both projects – is the card base and matching envelope.

Watercolor Birthday Card

They’re called Tutti-Frutti Cards and Envelopes #147242.  You get 16 preprinted card bases and matching envelopes in 4 colors:

  • Calypso Coral (like we used here)
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Lemon Lime Twist
  • Pool Party

But once we made the card above, I reminded Ann that Stampin’ Up! was offering free ribbon too!  AND it’s shimmery!  It comes in 3 colors and sizes.  They’re calling it the Shimmer Ribbon Pack #147243:

  • 1/4″ Basic Gray
  • 1/8″ Bermuda Bay
  • 3/8″ Calypso Coral

Do you like this better?

Watercolor Birthday Card

We used two colors of Stampin’ Blends with this in both light and dark:  Calypso Coral and Old Olive.  And we’ve never used the new Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder until we used it on this card.


Now, if you preferred to get the ribbon, you COULD use Calypso Coral cardstock as the folding card base.

And if you preferred to get the Tutti-Frutti card bases and envelopes, you could make this without the ribbon.

It’s totally up to you.

So here’s what we used to make this cool card.  It’s a grrrreat idea to use our current host shopping code.  When you do, we’ll throw in a small gift of a current product along with the reusable handmade card that we send all our online shoppers.  It’s currently RMQXMDQ4 but you can always find it here or towards the top of the right-hand column here on the blog.
