Anything But A Card Blog Hop

I hope you are enjoying our Anything But a Card Blog Hop. I’m hopping with fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Quebec, Canada.

Today’s hop features products from Sale-A-Bration 2018 that can be earned with qualifying purchases. I decided I wanted to document my kombucha journey. Notice the documenting is absent. I’ll add the journaling later along with my favorite flavors and my home brewing set up.

Nessalla is right on trend with my favorite flavor, lemongrass ginger. The bottle logo coordinates with our lemon lime twist In Color. When this color was introduced last summer, I knew I would be using it to make a scrapbook layout. The blog hop was a good reason to get the layout designed. The Nessalla bermuda bay sticker is also on trend and coordinates perfectly with the Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper. This DSP can be earned free with purchase during Sale-A-Bration.

I Spy Amazing You Hop Design Details

Thanks for stopping back today after hopping along our Inspire, Create and Share Blog Hop. If you missed the blog hop, click here to zoom to the hop.

I am sharing design details and supplies used to create my blog hop greeting card entry below. This card would also be fabulous on a scrapbook layout.

The crumb cake balloons needed a little jazzing up so I looked through my stamp stash and found a star stamp in the Better Together stamp set that was the right size. Strips of bermuda bay cardstock from my snippets bin were attached using the liquid glue. The snippets were custom cut off from the balloon using my Stampin’ Up! paper snips.

The next picture shows the Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon in bermuda bay prior to fraying in the bottom right. Gently pull the silver thread until the volume of fluffiness is reached for the tassel.

Next, use glue dots to attach the balloon tassels to the back of the crumb cake balloons. Use a mini-dimensional to adhere the balloon to the island indigo larger balloon. Both balloon sizes were punched using the Balloon Bouquet punch.

All the supplies used to create the blog hop card are included in the photo below. The second to largest size from the Lots of Labels framelit was used to frame the Celebrate You. Sale-A-Bration 2018 products include the Celebrate You Thinlets, Shimmer Ribbon, Amazing You stamp set and Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper.

ICS Blog Hop with Amazing You

Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration 2018 products. I hope you are enjoying our stops. We have great projects to share with you!

My design includes the game of I Spy. Can you find where I used the Amazing You stamp set? Look towards the bottom which needed a little more detail to offset the balloon bunch. The rays in the bottom corner of the Lots of Labels framelit shape are part of the ray half circle stamp in the Amazing You Sale-A-Bration stamp set. Sometimes only a portion of a stamp is needed to add the final detail.

We were challenged to use the following color combination in our design. I used crumb cake, bermuda bay and island indigo cardstock along with bermuda bay ink. The Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper featured the star pattern in bermuda bay hues so that was my starting point. Check back tomorrow for full design and supply details.

Update: We cleaned out the shelves so Stampin’ Up! has ended the sale. Sorry if you missed it! I am offering double points towards my Online Shopper Rewards program on all online orders placed through my online store by February 15th to help you out in case you missed the sale. Check out my Online Shopper Rewards program here. Thanks!

As you may remember, the response to our Fast Fuse promotion last fall was phenomenal. In fact, your enthusiasm was so overwhelming we simply didn’t have the inventory to keep the deal running! So, as promised, we’re bringing back the Fast Fuse Adhesive deal for five days only—while supplies last! For those of you who are unfamiliar with this promotion, here’s how it works: When you buy ONE Fast Fuse Adhesive, you’ll get TWO Fast Fuse Adhesive refills for FREE!

This deal will start on February 8 and end on February 12. Remember, that’s five days only—while supplies last! Be sure to mark your calendars and prepare to stock up and save!

Here is a short video sharing how to best use this product.

The sale starts on February 8th. I know I will be stocking up since Fast Fuse has been my adhesive of choice for several years.

Redeem this offer at my online store here. Make sure to use host code ERC7QSAJ if your order is under $150. DO NOT use a host code if your order is over $150 so you can redeem the host rewards.

Thanks and happy Stampin’!
