Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
Today I’m “Sale-A-Brating” friendship! One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is all the new friendships I have made over the past several years while sharing my joy of stamping!
My card and gift uses three of my favorite items from the Sale-A-Bration catalog…the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, the gorgeous Organdy Ribbon (from the combo pack), and an awesome sentiment stamp set, Part of My Story. Here’s a peek at each of these items. (Did I mention you can get all of these for FREE?!!)
I love to create cards and gifts to match. This gift was quick & easy to put together for a special friend. Gather some rocks, tree branches, and some store bought moss and put it all in a jar. (The rocks hold the branches in place.) I fussy cut the large butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and attached them to the branches with glue dots. This gift will last much longer than a bouquet of flowers! Choose the butterflies that match your home decor or stamp your own using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set from the Occasions catalog!
For the coordinating card I used another pattern from the Botancial Butterfly DSP for my background. I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut the branch and then fussy cut another large butterfly from the DSP. I punched the small butterfly from another pattern of the DSP using the Butterfly Duet Punch. (I love how you can use the butterfly punch with the coordinating Butterfly Gala Stamp Set or the Designer Series Paper. More bang for your buck!!)
I popped up the butterfly layer, the larger butterfly, and the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment from Part of My Story can be used for many occasions! (Check back tomorrow to see how I used it for my Valentine’s Day cards! Make sure you subscribe to my blog to get an email each time I post.)
The finishing touch was adding the beautiful bow made with the organdy ribbon! The best part about this project is I got the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack, and Part of My Story Stamp Set for FREE! You can too with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31st).

PERFECT! You did it again….as I just love it when a project pulls together with a “gift” and a “card” – This is just beautiful and oh so special! Way to rock it with using so many SAB items….and as always, your signature “perfect bow” is well….perfect!
Wow! What a beautiful card and gift! Such a great way to showcase these Sale-a-Bration products.
Amazing…you really do work well under pressure. I love both of these projects and I’m going to make that butterfly jar for myself.
Wow, this is so fun and amazing! So perfect together. I used that sentiment yesterday as it was perfect for the recipient. Great job as always! I need to hop along now.
Jeanie! You are the QUEEN of 3D! Just stinking gorgeous!
Wowzers! Both the gift and card are simply beautiful and so nicely coordinated. Way to go Jeanie!
This card and gift are Wow! Gorgeous! Jeanie. Using that branch die on your card was brilliant. I too love it when you can match a card to a gift. Well done!
Your jar is stunning! If I could dig under all our snow and find stones, moss, and a suitable branch, I would so be making this today! Thanks for sharing your wonderful work!
Love everything here! That gift is inspired! Beautifully done, Jeanie
I just love this…. simple but elegant!!
I love it. Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful gift set, Jeanie! Had to pin it twice for home decor and cards!! TFS
Gorgeous Jeanie!!! Everything is beautiful. Now I’ll have to add this butterfly to my wish list too!
Jeanie, I love how you matched your card to the gift! Both are beautiful!
One word… WOW!
Jeanie, this is fantastic!
Jeanie, this is such a lovely card and gift! You really will bless the recipient 🙂 Thank so much for sharing.
Your presentation of these butterflies on both the gift and the card are just perfect!
WOW! This is a masterpiece, Jeanie!
