Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase wedding, anniversary or Valentine’s day cards. You may have arrived from Deb Naylor’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

The Be Mine Stitched framelits has 16 dies to select from. I used 5 of the 16 options. The open heart swag created lots of mini hearts to decorate the card with. The flirty flamingo patterned hearts are cut from the All My Love dsp using the Be Mine Stitched framelits.

Use our Heart Epoxy Droplets to create easy bubbles over the mini hearts. A Petal Pink Frosted Flower Embellishment adds balance to the design. A snippet of each of the ribbons in the All My Love ribbon combo pack adds structure.

Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop

Welcome to the Celebration themed Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. It’s demonstrators’ choice for the celebration theme! We are Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators showcasing our fabulous products on scrapbook pages. If you are on the hop trail, you may have arrived from Jo Blackman’s blog. She had a great layout!

My project started with the Hello Cupcake Sale-a-bration 2019 stamp set. I had visions of multi-colored cupcake frosting with blackberry bliss wrappers. The 12×12 inch background and top photo mat are blackberry bliss too. The “sprinkles” stamp was used as a background stamp instead of cupcake toppers.

Sale-a-bration 2019 Paper Crafting Blog Hop

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Sale-a-bration 2019 products. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to spotlight buzzing butterflies using the Botanical Butterfly Sale-a-bration 2019 designer series paper and coordinating Butterfly Duet punch. The “a little note” sentiment is part of the Butterfly Gala stamp set.

The frogs from the So Hoppy Together stamp set have been calling to me. That’s unusual because coloring is not my favorite technique. But I envisioned shades of green on my go get ‘er frog so coloring I did.

I started by stamping the frog with jet black Staz On ink on watercolor paper. Then a blender pen pick up a little bit of garden green ink and filled in the darker parts of the frog. The second, lighter shade was Pear Pizzazz and filled in the tummy and face.

Real red lips were drawn using stampin’ write marker. Daffodil delight stampin’ write marker filled in the eyeballs.

See the epoxy hearts above? There are 2, one for the froggy heart and one on the Sale-a-bration organdy ribbon. Punch a heart from granny apple green cardstock using the brand new Dog Builder punch and place behind the epoxy heart so it stands out.

You have one last day to order the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set. I used the blobby looking stamp to create depth with the daffodil delight ink under the bike part of the stamp.

Please leave a comment and let me know if the new Dog Builder punch is on your shopping list!

Do you know some stamping friends that want to order but don’t have enough in sales to qualify for host rewards? I can create an online ordering host code so that online orders are gathered to one party where you are the host. You would receive any host rewards earned. Ask me quick to create a host code for you since today is the last day to Sale-A-Brate. Then contact your friends with the host code so they can place their online orders. Their orders are shipped to their address shortly after they place their order. I need to close your order by 6pm central daylight time today (March 31st) so you would be able to take advantage of the $25 in host reward dollars to spend if your party has $250 in sales.
