Maybe I should say Happy Birthday to me (although it is a bit early).  I finally have a new blog and I am SO excited!  I will be sharing mostly project ideas with my readers – using Stampin’ Up! products of course.  After all, I have been an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator for 17 years.

But enough about me.  How about I share a card I made today.  I cased the layout from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration catalog, but changed the color scheme.  I used the Happy Birthday To You stamp set, #152308, which can be yours during the Sale-A-Bration sales period with a minimum $50 purchase (before tax and shipping).  The stamp set is beautiful on its own, but Stampin’ Up! recently sweetened the deal.  Beginning February 4th customers can purchase a special coordinating Birthday Die set, #153590, for only $27.  I was able to purchase the Die set early – one of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, and I used the dies on my card.

See how the die cut flowers pop.  After I stamped and colored them I die cut them and adhered to the cake with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
There are many other product choices in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.   You can view the Sale-A-Bration Catalog on my Stampin’ Up! website at http://www.donnabagwell.stampinup.net then decide which items to place on your “Must Have” list.
I think the card turned out really pretty – who wouldn’t like to receive this beauty on their birthday?!
