Pals Blog Hop- Sale-a-bration

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, our blog hop theme is Sale-A-Bration! We hope you will be inspired by all the beautiful creations the Pals made for you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I had a hard time narrowing down which Sale-a-bration product I would feature. So, I decided to use several different products from the Sale-a-bration brochure to help show how well Stampin’ Up! products coordinate with each other.
The Thanks a Bunch stamp set is free with a $50 product purchase. The Favoured Flowers DSP is free with a $50 product purchase. The Dandy Designs DSP is free with a $100 product purchase.

Step by Step Tutorial (for the purple carrot card)

– Begin with a 5 ½ x 8 ½ card base of thick Basic White card stock; scored at the 4 ¼ using a Paper Trimmer

– Use the Paper Trimmer to cut
Favoured Flowers DSP to 4 x 1 ¾
Favoured Flowers DSP to 4 ¾ x 1 ½
Basic White to 5 ¼ & 4

– Run the Basic White layer through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Twigs & Sprigs embossing folder.

– Use a scrap piece of Fresh Freesia card stock & run it through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the All That dies.

– Stamp the sentiment with Blackberry Bliss ink onto the die cut banner

– Punch a scrap piece of Basic White card stock using the Decorative Circle punch

– Stamp off each carrot onto a scrap piece of paper, then stamp onto the punched Decorative Circle using Pumpkin Pie, Merry Merlot & Blackberry Bliss. Use Granny Apple Green for the stems (2 stamped full strength, 1 stamped off).

– Adhere the larger piece of DSP to the top of the embossed Basic White card stock; then adhere the smaller DSP (I used liquid Tombow glue).

– Cut a 4 1/2 piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon, adhere to the back side of the embossed Basic White card stock using household clear tape.

– Adhere the embossed Basic White card stock to the thick Basic White card base using adhesive of choice (I used liquid Tombow glue).

– Adhere the punched & stamped Decorative Circle using dimensionals.

– Adhere the die cut sentiment using liquid glue on the part that sits on the punched circle & a dimensional to the part that sits on the card front.

– For extra bling use the Pastel Pearls from the annual catalogue.

– To dress up the envelope, I used Favoured Flowers DSP to the flap of the envelope then fussy cut it.

I used the Dandy Designs DSP & Fern 3D embossing folder following the same template. The carrots are Mango Melody, Pale Papaya & Pumpkin Pie with Granny Apple Green stems.

Until then, have fun in your craft space.

My name is Jill Loveland & I have been an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in the Seattle area since 2010. I joined in 2010 during Sale-a-bration & have been hooked since. I love how the Stampin' Up! products coordinate from ink, paper to dies & embellishments. The quality of Stampin' Up! is the best in the paper crafting industry. I love to share my joy for card making & paper crafts with others. I hope you enjoy my blog & will visit often.

  1. Oh, Jill, your carrot cards are wonderful! I didn’t want this set at all but now I want it so I can make a whole bunch of purple carrots (my favorite)! Thanks for joining the blog hop this month!
