Screen Shot 2016-01-14 at 7.51.16 PMWelcome to our Sale-a-Bration International Blog Hop!  You may have arrived from the incredibly talented Monica Gale  or could be starting here.  Either way there is a blog hop list below so that you can make your way around the 12 blogs filled with ideas for Sale-a-Bration 2016.

I LOVE Sale-a-bration!  It’s that amazing time of year when you get free things from Stampin’ Up! for purchasing your favorite stamping supplies!  Here is my card using two of the Sale-a-bration exclusive products, the Hello stamp set and the Memories in the Making Project Life Specialty Card Collection.

Hello - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments #230.

And the colors for my card were inspired by Pals Paper Arts #285.

I started by trimming down one of the Memories in the Making Project Life Specialty Card Collection cards (Sale-a-bration item) and then sponging it with Pink Pirouette ink.  I adhered the card to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL, then to a Watermelon Wonder card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Hello 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered two strips of the 2015–2017 In Color Designer Washi Tape (Host Exclusive item) to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I punched both ends with the Hexagon punch and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.

Hello 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the hello sentiment from the Hello stamp set (Sale-a-bration item, only available until Feb 15) in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Watercolor Wonder card stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I stamped the My Friend sentiment from the Hello stamp set in Tip Top Taupe ink under the hello sentiment, then adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL and to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Hello 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I sponged three of the wooden hearts from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit using Sponge Daubers with Pink Pirouette, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder inks and adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots.  I added a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel next to the sentiment to finish it.

Hello 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the line images from the Hello stamp set in Watermelon Wonder, Pink Pirouette and Tip Top Taupe inks across the bottom or a Whisper White panel inside the card.

  1. What a cool background and great idea to sponge the Pink Pirouette, adds subtle pizzazz 🙂 Hmmm, now you have me thinking….Do I need the Memories in Making kit?! 😉

    • Thanks Lin! I stopped posting the backordered items when Stampin’ Up! updated the online store to indicate that items are on backorder. If you have any questions about the backorder list, feel free to drop me an email. I’m happy to send you an updated list.
