SALE-A-BRATION 2018 BLOG HOP

Hello and Welcome

Today another group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators are taking part in a Global Blog Hop featuring Sale-A-Bration products which went 'Live' this morning.

One of my New Years Resolutions is to Blog more consistently.  Here we are three days in and already I'm on my 2nd Blog Hop of the year, plus the one on Boxing Day !! 
We have lots of exciting products to share with you, featuring products from Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration 2018. 

For my cards today , I've used the Lots of Lavender stamp set #147194, available FREE with any £45 purchase until 31st March 2018.  The more you spend, the more you earn for FREE.

For this Trio of cards, I used Stampin' Up! Notecards, they are slightly smaller than our standard A6 card size but the Lavender seemed to fit much better on this size.


The image on this card was stamped twice onto Whisper White card, using the stamps to colour a scruffy image.  They were then 'fussy-cut' by hand and layered onto the front of an Old Olive, Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White mat layers.

I love the cute little curved arc of flowers but couldn't decided whether to go top and bottom or left and right, so went for both.  These were coloured using Fresh Fig and Old Olive ink pads, squeezed whilst shut to provide a palette on the inside of lid, and a Blender pen.  Wink of Stella was also added to flowers at the end.
My last note card, I wanted a different shape so added an oval from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies #145372.  These images were again coloured in using ink pads and blender pens.  When mounting 'fussy-cut' images, I added Stampin' Dimensional Mini 3D foam pads #144108, with Tombow adhesive on the outer edges, giving a curved effect.

SALE-A-BRATION KICK OFF EVENT

Sale-A-Bration from Stampin' Up! ....... is live from 3rd January 2018 !!!

As I welcome you to our Sale-A-Bration Kick Off Event, I would like to start by wishing you, your friends and families, a very Happy New Year and may 2018 be filled with lots of creativity ! 

As you read through my Blog post today, I apologise the fonts will not display as saved and having spent 2-hours this evening trying to sort, I now have to publish for the hop. :-(

Today a group of Demonstrators from round the Globe, have joined together to bring you a wide variety of project ideas, all featuring Sale-A-Bration 2018 products, that can be earned for FREE with every £45 spent, until 31st March.
  

As soon as I saw the new catalogues, I immediately fell in love with this cute stamp set, Panda Party from  Sale-A-Bration.


Sadly, being so hectic over Christmas with two sets of family staying, I've had withdrawal symptoms, not being able to spend time in my Craft Studio.

Before festivities kicked off, I had managed to create the card below using the Petal Passion Designer Series Papers #145589 from the new Spring / Summer 2018 catalogue as my background, adding some Lemon Lime Twist 1/4" Ombre Ribbon #144234.


The card below was created as one of my four card designs for my monthly groups in January.  Here, I used the Bamboo effect from Textured Impressions Embossing Folders #145656 on a Lemon Lime Twist card layer.  This 2017-19 In-Colour, is such a lovely bright, fresh colour and goes really well with Basic Black card.
Next, I was looking for a different way to mount the greeting so I punched a Circle Tab punch #143754  in Black cardstock, stamp "Hi" sentiment and punched with 3/4" Circle punch #119873 to attach on to, finishing off with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels #144220.  Some Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine #141682 and a quick coat of Wink of Stella Glitter Brush #141897 finished off the card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects today.  Don't forget, if you love this stamp set and would like to earn for FREE, please visit my Online Shop in the link below, and quoting the January Hostess Code.

PETAL PALETTE BIRTHDÀYS

Celebrating two friends birthdays this week, I made two similar cards using the **NEW** Petal Passions Designer Series Paper #145589 and Petal Palette stamp and Die bundle #145973 wood-mount or #145974 clear-mount, all available to order from tomorrow 3rd January.

I love that there are several nice co-ordinating Dies with this bundle.  I don't mind fussy cutting but having a Die makes it so much easier !
My base cards are Night of Navy with a mat layer of Bermuda Bay.  The Petal Passions Designer Series Paper has been sponged with Bermuda Bay ink.

Flowers have been coloured using the Watercolour Pencils #141709, adding a little Wink of Stella Glitter Brush #141897 to finish.  Sorry the photos were not taken in very good light but had to make it to the Post Office so couldn't wait for daylight !

Hope you like today's projects.
