11 Swaps: Patterned Occasions, Sycamore Street, Last Day SAB!

NOTE:  Before I get started I just have to give a shoutout to my readers, customers and viewers, "You guys are awesome!"  I was flooded with delightful comments (and orders-woohoo!) from yesterday's Secret Garden Bundle Card/Video post.  Everyone was lovin' the tips for quick framelit alignment.  Sometimes it's the little tips and tricks that make all the difference.  I'm glad I was able to help!

______________________________________________________________________________

Today's the last day of Stampin' Up!'s annual Sale-a-Bration promotion.  I'm sharing the last of my Sale-a-Bration swaps, featuring the popular Patterned Occasions stamp set and Sycamore Street products (free with $50 order, ends today, March 22nd).

Inspiration

I'm often asked, "Where DO you get your ideas Dawn?".  Inspiration comes from a lot of places.  Whether it's a magazine (like the Stampin' Success for demonstrators), nature, a trip to the shopping mall...probably one of my favorite places to get inspiration is Stampin' Connection (SC)...an exclusive online Stampin' Up! Demonstrator community. 

Today's card was inspired by Stampin' Connection.  Specifically, a fellow demonstrator, Penny Smiley.  I saw her card on SC and totally had to make one.  I did change up a few details to make it my own.  

You too can gain access to Stampin' Connection, when you purchase the Sale-a-Bration Starter Kit, just like our newest DOstamperSTARS:

Tracy from NC, Andreia from WI, Carolyn from PA, Mary from TX, Michell from WA, Linda from MN, Allison from NC, Debra from GA, Joyce from ME, Robyn from MN

Sale-a-Bration: Vintage Verses & Sycamore Street Thank You Notecards

(NOTE: my feed service seems to be having a hiccup these past couple of days.  Hopefully they'll have a fix for it soon)

Today's card...

I needed to whip up a couple dozen Thank You cards the other day.  So I reached for one of my trusty favorites...Notecards & Envelopes.  Love them!  

I've also fallen in love with the Sale-a-Bration Vintage Verses stamp set (free with $50 order until March 22nd).

Couldn't decide which color I liked the best...

Island Indigo or...

QC Card: Recover Rapidly from SAB Patterned Occasions

It's QC time again.  If you're looking for stamp sets for Quick and Cute cards, you don't have to look any further than Stampin' Up!'s  Sale-a-Bration, Patterned Occasions!  What's even better is, it's FREE with your $50 Sale-a-Bration order!

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, sab13, sale-a-bration, patterned occasions, QC, Quick & Cute, Get Well

Quick and Cute Tip 
Add depth to your card with a quick tone-on-tone panel  

  • Does this ever happen to you?  Sometimes you get done with a card and it looks nice, but it feels like it's missing something.  When that happens to me, 9 times out of 10, adding a same-color panel makes all the difference. 
  • Add some texture to it for even more visual impact.
  • This is one of my favorite cardmaking tricks.  Try it, you'll like it!
