Just in Case - Celebrate Today & Balloon Framelits

Just in Case Celebrate Today Stamp Set  1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

It's Just in Case Thursday today.  This is the day that Patsy Waggoner and I use a project form one of our current publications and recreate it or use it as inspiration for our design. 

CASE = Copy and Share Everything

Today's card is based on this one from page 4 of the Occasions Catalogue using the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set and coordinating Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies which are both retiring at the end of May.  The dies are on sale but are only available while supplies last!

Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies - Regular Price $44 - on sale for 50% off - $22

I choose Emerald Envy as the cardbase and Crushed Curry for the balloon.  You can add dimension to the balloon by stamping the dots on top.  With the photopolymer stamps it's easy to see exactly where you want to place them.  I added a few rhinestones just to give it some bling.

The Celebrate Today stamp set and matching Balloon Framelits are also retiring in May so you'll want to order them before they sell out.

Celebrate Today Photopolymer Stamp Set - regular price $32.00 - on sale for $27.20
Balloon Framelits - regular price $22.50 - on sale for $18.00

Card Swap Sunday! Carousel Birthday Stamp Set

Carousel Birthday Stamp Set 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

When I was in Toronto at Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event I was able to spend some time with the amazing Brenda Montesano and she kindly gave me this amazing WOW swap she had made using the Carousel Birthday Stamp Set.  It truly would take your breath away in person.

Each side has a little carousel horse inside the oval frame.  As you turn it you see a different horse on each side - it truly looks like a carousel turning around.

I tried to take a picture of the inside so you could see how Brenda constructed the card.  And did I mention she made 15 of these and each element is fussy cut.  Just amazing! I'm so honoured that she gifted me one of her creations.

You can lay it flat for mailing in a regular envelope too!

So now for the bad news...this set is in the Occasions catalogue and it's retiring on May 31st.  You can still purchase it if you do so by May 22nd, after that date there is no guarantee it will still be available.

The Cupcakes & Carousels Suite or products from the Occasions Catalogue coordinates beautifully together.  Here are the products available but remember that the accessories (non stamps) will only be available while supplies last.
