Sale-a-Bration Kick Off Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for our Sale-a-Bration 2018 BLOG HOP!  We have an amazing group of demonstrators in this hop that will be showing you ideas using the FREE PRODUCTS you can earn during Sale-a-Bration!  Sale-a-Bration runs January 3 – March 31st, 2018.  For every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping), you choose a FREE Sale-a-Bration product!  Plus, new this year:  Earn even bigger rewards when you spend $100 (before tax & shipping).

Today I’ll be showing off one of the items you can earn with $100 purchase- Celebrate You Thinlits Dies!  I’ve paired it with another FREE item, Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (free with $50 order).

Isn’t that a fun card?!!  And those thinlits cut out so easily!!  I love that balloon on the top!  That’s some beautiful paper that you can find in the new Occasions Catalog called Picture Perfect Party DSP.

A little different look for this card.  Which one do you like best?

I’ll be having a New Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Kick Off Party on Sunday, January 14th from noon to 3pm and I hope you can attend!  We’ll make 4 Make & Takes and there will be lots of displays & demonstrations, prize patrol, food, and you’ll take home Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catalogs.  Cost is just $15.  Bring a friend who hasn’t stamped with me in 6 months and you’ll both get to make a fabulous project!  Please RSVP!

Thank you for joining us today!  And be sure & continue on the hop.  We’d love to hear a few comments!  Are you excited about Sale-a-Bration?!!  Me too!!

Sweet Cupcake for #SSINKIC35: INKspiration Challenge

I’ve been hearing about Sara Douglass’ frosting recipe that she presented at #OnStage2016!  At club this month, we made this cute card using Sara’s recipe.

I actually came up with this card idea by looking at the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration challenge picture shown here:

My card’s not a beach scene, but I did use blue & pink & made little sprinkles like the sand.

  • Stamps:  Sweet Cupcake & Endless Thanks
  • Inks:  Crumb Cake & Soft Suede for Cupcake Liner (I stamped off Crumb Cake for the #3 stamp that had the largest image), Frosting was Flirty Flamingo (stamped off #3 stamp with the largest image) and the recipe reinker I used was Calypso Coral.  I sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds before it had time to dry.  Pool Party ink for “friend”.
  • Paper:  Crumb Cake base, Soft Sky (5 3/8 X 4 1/8), Pink Pirouette (5 1/8 X 3 7/8)
  • Accessories:  Cupcake Cutouts Framelits, Dimensionals under the cupcake

Hints:  Use the Precision Base Plate & Die Brush & the “Sweet” pops out with no trouble at all!
