Time for Sale-a-Bration

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I’m not sure about you but I’m ready for warmer weather and picking fresh fruit from the garden. Around mid-April, strawberries will be in season here in South Carolina but until then I’m drooling over the Berry Blessings Bundle. This bundle, which includes a stamp set and Designer Series Paper is available during Sale-a-Bration. It is great on its own and also coordinates with the new Sweet Strawberry Bundle.

The Designer Series Paper is amazing and my card features 3 different samples of the paper – the red check design, the green plaid design, and the gorgeous strawberries. I cut out the strawberries directly from the paper but you could stamp your own from the Sweet Strawberry Bundle as well. I used the Tasteful Textile embossing folder on the Crumb Cake card stock as it reminded me of the berry baskets that hold pints of fresh berries.

I used the Poppy Parade blends to color the basic pearl jewels to help them coordinate with the card. Another one of my favorites in the Sale-a-Bration promotion is the Heal Your Heart stamp set which has this gorgeous “Thank You” sentiment. I popped up the Thank You and berries with mini dimensionals.

I hope you enjoy this card – I loved getting to use these amazing Sale-a-Bration products!

Pals Blog Hop: New In Colors

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our theme is the “new 2020-2022 In Colors.” The Design Team is showcasing the new family of In Colors from the new catalog. We know you will love them as much as we do! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Today I chose to highlight three of the five new In Colors as well as some of my favorite products in the new annual catalog.

I absolutely love the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle. It was the first item on my list from the new catalog. I’ve crated some different variations of cards using this bundle both using the more intricate dies as well as this one for the outline of the sunflower. I stamped the image in Bublebee ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I then took an aqua painter and pulled some ink from the underside of the ink pad cover to give some more color to the petals. I used the same technique for the stamped images of the petals using Just Jade. I used a combination of Stampin’ Blends and markers to color the center of the sunflower.

I added some of the Forever Greenery DSP to the envelope flap to dress up the envelope. I find I spend so much time working on the card that I often forget about the envelopes. Stamping on the outside of the envelope or adding some DSP to the flap is a great way to pull everything together.

I love the texture that the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder gives the Misty Moonlight card stock. It gives an extra level of visual interest while not distracting from the rest of the card.

The Lovely Labels pick a punch is another favorite of mine. With one punch, you can punch out your sentiments with two different shapes in a variety of sizes. See the full listing of all of the products used at the very end of the blog post.

This new sentiment of “just wanted to say hello” from the Today’s Tiles stamp set is perfect. We make cards to celebrate birthdays, graduations, weddings, and so many other reasons to celebrate or remember. However, I think that sometimes no occasion at all is best for a card.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for July 8th – Gifts from the Garden when the design team will showcase cards or gift ideas from treasures found in the garden.

Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.

Pals Blog Hop: Welcome Little One

Hello, welcome to the Pals Blog Hop! This month our theme is “Goodbye to January-June Mini and 2019-2020 Annual Catalogs and Hello to 2020-2021 Annual Catalog” where the Design Team is showcasing their favorites from the retiring catalogs or products in the new catalog! You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

 

Fable Friends has become a favorite set of mine – especially considering my niece’s love for Peter Rabbit. I’ve used this set to make her cards as well as cut-outs of Peter Rabbit to play with. Today I’m using this set on a baby card for my cousin and her husband who are due with a little one any day – I made a purple and blue version. This stamp set is made for using the blends for coloring. I also used the blends to give some color to the Pearl Basic Jewels – just a few swipes with the blends gives it the color to coordinate with the card.

As much as I will miss some of these items that are retiring, I’m so excited for the new catalog! Mine has arrived in the mail and I’ve gone through it at least a dozen times already. I also submitted a demonstrator pre-order and am waiting for the package to arrive from Utah. I can’t wait to play with all of the new goodies! You can find a full listing of all of the products I used at the very bottom of this post.

Mark your calendars for June 10th, with our theme “New 2020-2022 In Colors.” We can’t wait to show you the newest In Colors in the Stampin’ Up! color family. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.
