Sale-a-Bration Anything But a Card Blog Hop


Hello friends!
I hope you are enjoying our Sale-a-Bration Anything But a Card Blog Hop. I'm hopping with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world.
Today's hop features products from Sale-A-Bration 2018 that can be earned with qualifying purchases. My hop entry is below so let's get to it.
I chose to make a tag using the Amazing You stamp set. Although I love that there are coordinating thinlits also available as a SAB level 2 option -- Yay! -- I used my heat gun for some embossing and the Garden Trellis embossing folder to add texture. The color focus is on Berry Burst and silver, they are elegant together!

Check back tomorrow to get the measurements and a description of how this tag came together.


Then I paired this bad boy up in with several packaging ideas......
Silver Gabled Box


Embossed treat bag
Glassine treat bag

I think this tag would also work as a focal point on a card....very versatile!!!

Sale-A-Bration 2018 Blog Hop


Hello friends!

Happy New Year! I'm celebrating the new year, Stampin Up's newest catalog, the Occasions catalog, and the best time of year, Sale-a-Bration (SAB)! 

Welcome to the 2018 Sale-A-Bration blog hop. We have lots of creativity to share with you featuring Sale-A-Bration 2018 products. 

For those who don't know me let me introduce myself. I attended my first Stampin' Up! workshop in 1996 and have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010--I am passionate about stamping! I live in central Maryland; if you ever find yourself in the area, look me up and come stamp with me!

My projects feature the SAB set Party Pandas. These pandas are too darn cute, especially when paired with other SAB items and designer series paper (DSP)!

Party Pandas stamps with Tutti Frutti DSP

I stamped each panda with Tuxedo Memento black ink on Whisper White cardstock then outlined them using the Light Smokey Slate Stampin' Blend marker--it really makes them pop, like they are 3D! I dressed each card up with the Tutti-frutti adhesive backed sequins from the Tutti-Frutti suite in the Occasions catalog for easy-peasy embellishing.
