Spring is here!

Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project


Spring is starting to hum in the air! Sale-a-Bration season is flitting along and is almost over. Stampin' Up! has hatched new Sale-a-Bration rewards. Plus, for the first time ever, exciting new products that coordinate with Sale-a-Braiton items have been created. They are the perfect complement to make your crafting experience even more complete. This spring is blooming with so many exciting things that it's hard to know what to share first!

I thought I'd add a bit more colour to the season with the gorgeous Stained Glass technique featuring the lovely Humming Along stamp set and Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper. This beautiful paper is one of the items you can earn for free during Sale-a-Bration.

Enjoy the card tutorial and don't let Sale-a-Bration flit past before you've checked all the goodies off your creative wishlist!

Humming Along Stained Glass Card

Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project

Nothing says spring like colourful birds and flowers! This card is the perfect kick off to the season. The Stained Glass technique uses heat embossing, Vellum cardstock, and Stampin' Blends to create a bold effect that you'll love.

The line art images in the Humming Along stamp set are perfect for this technique and the soft floral designs from the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper are a perfect backdrop. Be sure to get your paper before Sale-a-Bration ends!
