Stampin' Addicts' Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop



Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts' Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop.  We'll show our favorite items to help you choose favorites to receive free with each $50 Stampin' Up! purchase you make from January 5 until March 31, 2016.

If you are hopping in order, you've arrived after seeing Twila's cutie pie design with the Honey Comb Happiness set on her Stamp a Little Longer Blog. Should you get lost or want to chat about the hop, here is a link to the chat thread on the Stampin' Addicts website: Chat Thread

Some of the items are for a limited time...including the set that I (as well as the next hop stop after mine) chose to highlight. The Sky is the Limit set is only available through February 15, so you'll need to choose it early if you like it as well as I do.  I love the masculine possibilites as well as the fun sayings.

First, I made this slider card. Stamped on Soft Sky, I used Chocolate Chip for the sentiment and biplane and then, the White Chalk Marker and the new Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush over the White Chalk marker for the clouds and little heart trail.  The inside is stamped with a Valentine wish....There is a rhinestone bling on the nose of the plane in keeping with the glittery nature of the card. This card is quick and still fun I think.

Pulling the slider makes the plane line up with the heart trail....


Next, I combined the set with the Going Places designer series paper stack. I considered using some Vanilla Twine to connect the plane to the sentiment as a banner, but I chickened out....The Mossy Meadow and Basic Black with Very Vanilla make a very masculine design in my opinion.

Now, soar along to Heidi's Running with Scissors Stamper Blog for more high flying fun.

The slider is awesome! I also like the sky's the limit banner on the congratulations card. It's a natural fit. Great cards!

Oh, I love that slider! So clever :) And the map DSP behind the plane in the second card is perfect!

This is fantastic Rhonda - I had just pinned this on my pinterest board an hour ago before I saw this hop.
