Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – Sale-A-Bration Inspiration

Hi friends,

Welcome to another Stamper’s Showcase Blog Hop and a special welcome to my blog, Stamping Flair. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Blind Bight, Australia – a small coastal town in Victoria. So glad to have you stop by and as a group of demonstrators from around the world we are hoping to inspire you with lots of ideas from the amazing Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

What is Sale-A-Bration?

If you are new to the whole stamping thing you might wonder what is Sale-A-Bration and why does Rochelle keep going on about it? So glad you asked.

  • It is the best sale of the Stampin’ Up! year
  • You get to earn free products with a minimum spend -. In Australia the minimum order value is $90 and every increment thereafter earns you another reward
  • There are 2 tiers of rewards – some at the $90 threshold and others at the $180 threshold so you have lots to choose from
  • The best part is there no limit to the number of products you can earn for free

    Pretty good right?

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop Sale-A-Bration Inspiration, February 2020So for my project I pulled out the Happy Birthday to You stamp set which is a Sale-A-Bration reward you can earn with a $90 order. I also combined several other Sale-A-Bration items on this project to give you maximum inspiration.

I started off with Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay Pigment Sprinkles on Shimmery White cardstock. To maintain a little bit of control over where the colour went, I first added water with an Aqua Painter then sprinkled the powder. Then I added more drops of water, leaving it to dry well between colours. I love the different looks that pigment sprinkles give. This panel was layered on the beautiful Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper which is another Sale-A-Bration offering.

I coloured the flowers with a combination of Stampin’ Blends and die cut them with the Sale-A-Bration coordination die set. These dies are great for cutting the cake image, flowers, the stand and all the leaves I’ve got on this arrangement. I added a piece of faux suede white cardstock which I embossed with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder – just for a little bit of extra texture. 

Faux Suede Technique

 

A strip of Sale-A-Bration Golden Honey Designer Series Paper adds just the right amount of gold to coordinate with the gold embossing. 

I hope this inspires you to get busy with all the lovely goodies that Sale-A-Bration has on offer. All products I have used on this card are listed below. Make sure you visit all the blogs for more inspiration and please leave us comments as we’d love to hear from you.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Valentine’s Day

Hi crafty friends,

Welcome to Stamping Flair and thank you for stopping by to see what I have created for the Stampin’ Dreams Valentine’s Day inspired blog hop. There’s still time for some last minute creating and we are here to inspire you.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop July Designer Series Paper

I’ve got a little treat bag for you today and this is definitely perfect for a last minute make as it is very quick to create. Stampin’ Up! have some gorgeous gift packaging and these Copper Dotted Treat Bags are simple and elegant.

I stamped the lacy heart in Real Red and then layered it on a heart punched out of the Designer Series Paper and then set it against one of those beautiful doilies. At $9.50 for 40 doilies these are great value as there is so much you can do with them.

The wood grain paper is from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP. If it has wood, I love it and I find it so versatile. Add a few chocolates in the cute cellophane bags for some added prettiness and you’ve got a lovely little treat bag.

Joy of Sets Blog Hop – Love is in the Air

Hi,

Welcome to my blog and the Joy of Sets monthly blog hop. No surprises with our theme this month – Love is in the Air. If you are new to my blog, I hope you enjoy my projects and become a regular.

The Joy of Sets - One Stamp 3 Ways

With only a few days left to Valentine’s Day, we hope to inspire you with our projects. So please make sure you stop by all the blogs for loads of ideas to help you create something special for that special someone.

My projects started off with my idea of using the Detailed Hearts Die with watercolouring. Then I chose my colours of Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride. Using an aqua painter, I watercoloured a panel of Shimmery White cardstock. 

Heartfelt bundle, Stampin' Up!, Watercolouring with aqua painters

Stampin' Up!, Hearfelt bundle, Heart doily cut in half and layeredThe card base was embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. Then I layered a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock die cut with the Stitched Rectangles die. I die cut another piece of Whisper White cardstock in the same size. Then using the Detailed Hearts die, I embossed the white panel. 

I stamped and punched the heart from the watercoloured cardstock and cut a Heart doily in half to create a smaller matte around this image.

How to make a gift tag with a rectangle die

I had some watercoloured cardstock left so I made a gift tag for this cute bag which is in the Birthday Bonanza suite. One of the Stitched Rectangle dies was used to create the banner shape.

I added some of the die cut hearts from my card to embellish the tag and this gift bag filled with chocolate hearts was all set for giving.

Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop January 2020 – Sale-A-Bration

Hi Friends,

Today I’m hopping with fellow demonstrators from around the world in the Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop and we are showcasing all things Sale-A-Bration. 

Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop, January 2020, Sale-A-Bration

So what is ‘Sale-A-Bration? It’s the biggest Stampin’ Up! promotion of the year. In Australia, for every $90 you spend you receive a free product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. So these are the products you will see highlighted in all our blogs today.

I have chosen the Happy Birthday to You stamp set and the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for my projects

 

I coordinated these products with the Peaceful Poppies Elements to add a lovely chic black touch to them. These projects involved a bit of fussy cutting but come 4th of February you don’t need to worry as coordinating dies are available. So no more fussy cutting for this cake image.

The large cake creates a lovely focal point for cards and with the choice of sentiments, it’s suitable for any occasion.

I had a bit of leftover Peaceful Poppies Elements border which I couldn’t bear to throw away so I added it to my gift tag which coordinates with the cards.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you visit again. All products I have used on the projects are listed below. Please stop by all the blog hop participants for more inspiration with your Sale-A-Bration catalogue. Click on the Next button to see what Laura has created for you.

The Joy of Sets Blog Hop January 2020 – Something New

Joy of Sets Blog Hop Header

Hello,

Welcome to Stamping Flair. Hope you are enjoying your weekend and getting a chance to relax. I’m enjoying school holidays and getting some extra crafting done. I’m also loving the time I get to spend with my daughter, Cassidy, just doing things in our own time instead of having to rush around. She loves going places with me so we have a great time. 

Something New is this month’s theme for the Joy of Sets Blog Hop. New year, new decade, new baby, new friend, new neighbours – there was plenty to choose from. I’ve chosen the From My Heart suite in the new Mini catalogue to create a coordinating card and gift box. 

Coordinating card and gift box for Valentine's day with From My Heart suite

The card came together very quickly with one of the heart punches and a little bit of stamping. The heart shaped foil tin is a perfect gift box and so easy to decorate using those pretty doilies and a few punched out hearts. These tins are food safe and you could even bake mini cakes in them as treats.

Simply Love!

Creating ‘love’ themed projects are made easy with the From My Heart suite. You can find find all the beautiful products from Pages 8-10 in the Mini Catalogue. In traditional Valentine’s day colours, with touches of foil on the Designer Series Paper, this suite is quite rich in colour.

Stampin' Up! From My Heart Designer Series Paper

The coordinating heart punches align with some of the images on the Designer Series Paper and I used one of these on my card today to layer on one of those cute doilies. 

I am not so much into giving really bright red cards for Valentine’s day (because I like to be different!) and by adding Crumb Cake into the colour palette it just mutes the whole colour scheme. We still have Valentine’s Day colours going on but with more natural tones incorporated.
