Time to Sale-A-Brate Friendship with the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop Badge February 2019

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.

Stampin Up friend card and gift idea using Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and Part of My Story Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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).

Get This Spirited Snowman Before He Melts Away!

Stampin’ Up! released their retiring products and year end close out sale today and I was sorry to see the Spirited Snowman stamp set on the list.  This is one of my favorite stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog!  This was the swap card I made for my friends attending the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Convention last month.

I love this happy little guy and he was so much fun to color with my Stampin’ Blends.  I enjoy making this fun fold card. (You can view my photo tutorial for how to make it HERE.) Here’s a picture of it from the side.

I like the way this fun fold card stands up.  It can also fold flat to mail in a regular envelope.  I dressed is up a little with some snowflakes cut from the Blizzard Thinlits Die (also retiring) and the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  Here’s my attempt at an infinity shot of these guys all lined up.
