One of my Yahoo groups, Convention Late Night Stampers, has a challenge every week, and I finally decided to take some time to look at this week’s challenge. Since I’ve been "collecting" the papers and ribbons from the Sale-A-Bration catalog, that’s naturally where I went for my own inspiration. I am SO over winter (the days are quite short here in Hawaii during the winter, and I’m ready for more sun!), and the pastel spring-y colors in the Sale-A-Bration bundles really warm me up!
For this card, I chose the Polka Dot Punches stamp set and two of the Delicate Dots Designer Paper designs. I used card stock of all of the coordinating colors–So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Sahara Sand, and finished it off with the Certainly Celery Poly-twill ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration ribbon bundle. I layered all of this on a Very Vanilla card, and it’s ready to go out to a friend with a cheerful note inside!.
Besides the Sale-A-Bration materials, I used two of my favorite Stampin’ Up! accessories – the Scallop Square Punch and one of the texturizing plates from the Sizzix Stampin’ Up! Backgrounds I Texturz set. I really like the texture in the Sahara Sand layer, and the Scallop Square Punches really set off the stamped design delightfully.
I’m really going to miss Sale-A-Bration when it’s over at the end of the month! I’ve so enjoyed using all the papers and ribbons, as well as the stamp sets. As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I feel a responsibility to you, my friends and customers, to demonstrate only current Stampin’ Up! products. So I’m doing that with the Sale-A-Bration sets this month. If you want any of these great products, that you can use all year long, don’t miss out on this opportunity to get your own papers and ribbons and stamps before they’re gone forever! This is the month! And they’re FREE!!
All you have to do to get a FREE stamp set or ribbon bundle or paper bundle is to purchase $50 worth of Stampin’ Up! products. Whether you order online or I order for you, you get to pick which of the products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog you want! And this is good for EVERY $50 you spend. So, if you order $100 of products, you get TWO Sale-A-Bration freebies! Definitely a good deal.
Have a great weekend–Happy Stamping! And don’t forget Sale-A-Bration!!
