Creation Station Hop - Sale-A-Bration Celebration!!

Welcome to Just Julie B Stampin'! This month for the Creation Station Hop we're having fun with the Sale-A-Bration freebies! I love that Stampin' Up! offers such awesome products to begin with, but then free products when we purchase $50 or more!! - Who can resist?!

And here is one of the choices, and one of my favorites - you get 48 bright and 'oh so happy!' sheets of Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Papers -

I Love to get a great set of Designer Series Papers - they can totally inspire me, and help to guide the cards I will make! So here is a card I made for my stamp class friends this month. It's pretty simple in design, but the inspiration definitely comes from this super fun Designer Series Paper piece.

I used two layers of Stitched Rectangles to layer the coordinating rainbow die cuts onto. I thought that pop of Mango Melody on the larger Stitched Rectangle helped to pop the rest!

And I think my favorite part of this card is the cloud layer under the die cut rainbow. I created the cloud layer by first cutting a Stitched Rectangle from Basic White Cardstock. Then I used the Basic Borders Dies 'Cloud' piece to cut down the rectangle piece. How cute is that layered over the rainbow pieces?!!

And can you see the Artistry Blooms Sequins on a couple of the sun centers on the Designer Paper?! 

Here is another card - and I used a subtle piece from the same Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Papers for the background. I Love this print in Pool Party with cute little hearts all over it! These are smaller, notecard sized cards. And I made a stack of them, pretty quick and easy! 

There are a couple of layers. One with the Dotty Hearts Embossing Folder on Basic White Cardstock. Then a narrow Basic White Cardstock layer under the designer paper layer.

And on this card, and the previous one, I used the coordinating Rainbow of Happiness Bundle. The dies are so fun and addictive to use!! (And when you purchase that bundle, you're so close to earning the designer papers...)

Here's a little glimpse into my method of madness in creating!! I die cut the rainbow from the four colors. and then I had four sets of rainbows! 

So I made four cards!! Notice, they all have the colors in a different order? But they're all rainbows, and still pretty cute! And that was good to get four sets - because you can always use more thank you cards, right?!

I hope you enjoyed your stop here, and hope you're looking forward to seeing what Kathy Kartak has in store for us - I know I am!! Click Here -
