Stampin' Addicts 2014 Sale-A-Bration SAB Blog Hop




Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts SaleABration blog hop for 2014!  Hop along with us as we show projects made with each of Stampin' Up! 's fun designs that you can get  for FREE with each $50 purchase (before tax and shipping) with your demonstrator.

You may have arrived from Heidi's blog, Running with Scissors Stamper, where she showed such cuteness with the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper.  I love the black dsp with the Zebra. SO pretty!  Should you get lost or want to chat about the hop, visit the CHAT THREAD on the Stampin' Addicts website.

I chose the Sweet Sorbet Accessories pack.  It come with 10 yards of twine (which is at least double the thickness of our other twine) in each color: Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party and Summer Starfruit.  There is also a sheet of adhesive cork designs.  There are 6 flowers and 18 scallops, 10 diamond shapes and 24 slash shapes.  It is obviously beautiful with the Sale-A-Bration designer series paper called Sweet Sorbet, and there are lovely examples in the SAB brochure of the pretty match they make.

First, I made this card with the MOJO Monday sketch from this week MOJO330. I love the tall skinny look of this sketch. (It is only 7 inches in length rather than 8-1/2 for the side that is folded.)

Notice the Pool Party colored twin, the slashes in the top left corner and the white cork flower....It was a lot of fun to use...I was pleasantly surprised to like cork on a card. :) I did cut between the petals a bit to allow some of the petals to lift up off the base more than others.

Next, I made this little matching Ghirardelli cover.  It was designed by Brianna Thompson/mommy-stamper, and it is so sweet for Valentine's day.


Then, I have another card made with the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper and the Crisp Cantaloupe twine. It was quick and simple using the square framelits.  Just add twine and Cork and then some rhinestone bling...Fresh and Fun....


Finally, another MOJO sketch ( MOJO323 ) that I immediately wanted to use with this twine since I knew I had these accessories to showcase for the hop, so I printed it for later use.  This card exhibits a more traditional style with just the twine and a stamped image.



Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you enjoy the hop as you continue to Tina's Paper Art Garden blog to see the cute Decorative Dots Embossing Folder in action. I especially like the sponged tricolor card. Fun idea!
