Stampin' Addicts 2012 Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop!

If you've arrived from Twila's Stamp a Little Longer blog, I hope you've enjoyed her lovely creations with the Sprinkled Expressions set as much as I did.  If you are lost, you can find your way on the Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop Chat Thread  which includes the entire list of hop stops in order. Once you've perused my three projects, Lisa will be happy to have you on Add Ink and Stamp where she is featuring the Outlined Occasions set as well---bonus!

For my first card, I used the Congratulations stamp from Outlined Occasions to create a focal point that is highlighted by the new curved edgelit.  Stamped in Pacific Point with Old Olive and Melon Mambo to fill in, the Celebrate sentiment coordinates the different parts of this card. The Sale-A-Bration Kiwi brad is attached to the ribbon with a glue dot. (I cut off each end of the prongs and wrapped what was left around the ribbon.) I love these bright cheery colors with this set.

My second card is the Thanks card my church women's group sent to the troops with a box of cards.  I think it is fun with all the glisteny accents.  Silver Shimmer paper and the Cherry Cobbler glitter glue with the moonlight pearlized accent ink and three rhinestone bling make a clean and simple card shine.

Disclaimer: This card DID NOT go to Operation Write Home.  The recipients of this card are not out in the field receiving mail.  Please don't send glitter of any kind on a card to Operation Write Home because they can not control exactly who gets what card.  I didn't intend to mislead.


The next "card" uses MOJO225, the Mojo Monday sketch for this week, with the LOVE stamp.  I used the Sweet Shop designer series paper and some rhinestone bling.....

With the Peekaboo frames die. :) I really think a card with just the Love stamp and the double Peekaboo frame with the Be Mine sentiment behind it would be great for a class. I just thought of the squinkies and candy and had to try it.  I'll have a few extra pictures for you of how easy it is in my next post next week.

Thanks for visiting, and continue hopping to Lisa Youngs' Add Ink and Stamp Blog, won't you?  She has gorgeous 3D items and a super creative card!

Love em all! The colors are great on the first one. Love the USA one of course, and the last uhmm....card?? Wow, a shadow box card with toys and chocolate, what could be better?? Just one caution though, if I understood right, not sure I'd send anything glittery to the troops even glimmer paper or dazzling details, cuz it can come off. I may have misunderstood on that one though.

Betty said...
