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?
So 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.
