Hello! Today I’m getting my As You See It Challenge card posted! A few days late but I’m getting closer to getting back on schedule! This one was tricky as Stampin’ Up! has retired our edgelits and edge punches so I had several ideas swirling around on how to create the “ruffled” look. Check out the other Design Team gals’ creations at the As You See It Challenge Blog HERE! Check out Amy’s use of the fringe scissors…she’s a total genius! As for me, I ended up using the Envelope Punch Board to make my zig zag/ric rac look. Watch for a video on that coming soon!
I also combined the sketch challenge from AYSI with the Color Throwdown Challenge for this week! I LOVE the color combination here – I normally never do browns with blacks or greys so this really was a challenge for me! A tricky detail to see is the white sequins I’ve used to really draw the eye to the sentiment. I’m obsessed with these Greetings Thinlits Dies! They are fantastic – wonderful size and great font!
Kraft 12″x12″ Cardstock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, scrap 2″ x 5-1/2″ (cut to width after punching)

I’m having a customer appreciation event tomorrow night, including Make-and-Takes (the card above is one), a prize drawing for over $100 worth of SU! goodies, handmade items for sale, my Stampin’ Stash Sale, as well as an opportunity to get FREE SHIPPING on the orders placed tomorrow only (read on for more info). It’s the LAST day of Sale-A-Bration tomorrow so it is the FINAL opportunity to get in on the Exclusive, FREE products with every $50 you spend.
The card above uses 4 of our Sale-A-Bration items!!! Can you tell I’m a fan of this year’s offerings? I used the stamp set See Ya Later for the greeting and Banner Blast for the banners. I then punched out the banners with the fabulous, matching Banner Punch. I ran the Whisper White layer through the Big Shot (AFTER stamping) with the 4th SAB item, the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.
I also wanted to share the Envelope Punch Board with my crafters, so we’re making the 3D Open Box too! This was a fantastic idea from SU! Demo, Sam! LOVE it!
Out of town customer? You can be entered into the drawing for placing an order before the event. If you are placing an order under $150, use the Hostess Code 666UFGFP to qualify for the FREE shipping offer (I will have to PayPal you the money back or send you a check if you live out of town). If you are placing an order over $150, I will still offer the FREE shipping, but do not enter the Hostess Code as you qualify for Hostess Benefits on your order alone.
Anyone in the Saint Joseph, Missouri area is welcome to come to my event tomorrow night! Feel free to send me an email at Sarah@SarahLovesToStamp.com or call/text 816.341.0208 if you’d like directions to my house! You can also call, text or email if you have other questions but my event runs from 6:30-9:30 pm tomorrow night so I will answer everything after that! Orders must be in by 11:30 pm Central Time so I can get everything entered in before Sale-A-Bration ends. I’m sad it’s coming to an end, as it’s my favorite time of year, but glad that there’s one more day! I don’t want you to miss out! 🙂
