In Love With Stamping Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop


If you've arrived from Jo's blog - welcome to my stop in the blog hop. If you're starting here, just click on the link at the end of my post and then follow each of the links on the following blogs posts on the hop, and you'll end up back here again.


My first card uses a greeting from the Whimsical Wishes set. A very simple card with the candle from Big Bold Birthday, Tempting Turquoise Card, and designer paper from the Kaleidoscope pack. The ink colours are: Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Orchid Opulence and Lovely Lilac. A little paper piercing along the turquoise card to finish.




My second project is a little card box measuring 10.5cm square. It houses six 9.5cm square cards and their matching envelopes nicely. The Sale-A-Bration set I've used here is Vintage Labels - my favourite of the four SAB sets I think. The swirly stamp from this set is framed just perfectly by the Hodgepodge Hardware frame. Very simple colour scheme of Old Olive and Very Vanilla - the paper is from the Old Olive designer series pack. Some 5/8" Old Olive grosgrain to finish on top of a strip of vanilla punched with the Eyelet Border Punch. I have a tutorial for making the box here on my blog.




The box houses six little note cards - two of each design. All using the same Vintage Labels set.

Both of these Sale-A-Bration sets can be earned free from Stampin' Up! Click on the image to download a pdf of the brochure.




Thank you for stopping by. Your next stop is Kim Fee's blog here.

Love the bright colours of the candle card. The boxed set is my favourIte though. The olive and vanilla colour combo has a slightly vintage feel that complements the stamps.
