Stampin' Up Sale-A-Bration Cards - Birthday, Friendship and Easter

I meet every month with two other local Stampin' Up! demonstrators to have fun stamping and to swap cards.  I am a bit late with these because they feature Sale-A-Bration rewards, which will not be available after 3/31/12.  However, I am sure many of you will use your stamp sets long after that and you can substitute other designer paper.

Fresh VIntage by Patti Beachy
This Friend card was made by Patti Beachy.

The next two cards were made by Kathy Braine.
He is Risen by Kathy Braine

The first card is an Easter card that features the new Stampin' Up! Framelits Label Collection and the Sizzix Lattice Die.  She used a smaller size Framelit to cut out the middle to make the big frame.  The cross was made with the lattice die. She die cut the lattice and then cut away sections to make the cross.
Stamp Set:  He Is Risen
Card stock:Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party
Accessories:  Pearls, Twine - Lucky Limeade, Framelits - Label Collection, Sizzix Lattice Die, Designer Series Paper - Everyday Enchantment (Sale-A-Bration reward)

The next lovely card has a vintage feel and features the Sizzlets Paper Doily Die.

Hello Doily by Kathy Braine
She stamped images from Fresh Vintage and Baroque Motifs on Whisper White card stock.  The Hello Doily was stamped on top of those images with Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with White Embossing Paper.  She sponged black ink all over the card stock to make the doily image pop.
She finished off the card with rhinestones and the organdy ribbon. The Framelits Labels Collection dies were used to make the greeting.

If you like the stamp set or designer paper, get it now, it will be gone on March 31, 2012!

I will be back with some cards made with the Tea Shoppe Set and a sneak peek from Summer Smooches, coming to you on April 1.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
