Happy EPIC Celebrations

Now it is the dying days of the SALE-A-Bration promotion and I'm afraid some of you are in danger of missing out. The offerings this year were varied and extensive, it has been quite tricky keeping track of all the loveliness. Epic Celebrations was my second favourite (after Party Pandas) and I have 3 cards to share today, using this stamp set. If you want to add it to your $90 order, you enter #147232 to order wood mount or #147236 for clear mount. Both styles are free with your qualifying order. I am available to help you place an order if you require advice or assistance.

Happy Celebrations #143012 is the other stamp set I used for this series of cards, and it suits the edgie teen-feel of the Epic Celebrations stamp set. You might like to take a look at this stamp set on page 34 of the Annual catalogue. It is a little more expensive than you might expect for photopolymer at $61.00, but it covers a number of occasions and has some great 'grunge' background stamps included. If you were thinking of joining my FUNdamentals team before the end of the month, Stampin' Up! are allowing you to add two stamp sets of any price to your other $235 of goods, so potentially you could score more than $400 of crafting goodies for an outlay of $169!!!

The three cards are a step-it-up series. It is a fun way to show off the possibilities. The first card is fairly easy, except maybe for the little bit of masking to get the sneakers on top,  but after you've seen that done once, it will be super easy for you too. I've shared how I added designer series paper to the letters in this post.

A pencil line was ruled to get the letters straight this time, but another version will show you them placed haphazardly. The word 'happy' was stamped onto the patterned paper and hand cut. Beginning with the first and last letter, adhere in place before calculating where the centre is.

After that, it is easy enough to finish off the word and if you use Tombow liquid glue, you have some wriggle-room to adjust positions slightly. Below you can see Version 2 completed.

Pulling some colours from the DSP ( Picture Perfect Party Paper stack) and the addition of some enamel shapes helps to lift this second version as well.

Here we have the ultimate version! Not really, you can use this stamp set so many ways, just check 'Epic Celebrations Stampin Up' on Pinterest. I used the other two image stamps on this one as well, but there is still 3 more stamps not seen here. Don't you think this is a must-have stamp set?

Here's a quick little shopping list that comes in at $90.75, just 75c over the qualifying amount to claim Epic Celebrations for FREE.

#143012 Happy Celebrations                  $61.00
#145559 Picture Perfect Party                 $17.50
               designer series paper
#140490 Whisper White A4 Thick card $12.25
Of course once you're shopping you'll see lots of goodies to add, and you might even earn a second SALE-A-Bration bonus, there's no limit. Finishes definitely 31st March.
