Sale-a-Bration 2016 International Stampin' Up! Blog Hop


Welcome to our Sale-a-Bration International Blog Hop! We are hoping all around different parts of the world today and highlighting the gorgeous Sale-a-Bration Products that won't be around much longer. Have you collected everything that you possibly can? If not it is time to go shopping!

You may have just arrived directly here and be starting the blog hop - or you may have come from the super talented Anja Luft's blog before me. Either way you can use the list at the bottom of this post to hop around to each talented stampers blog. We are sure you are going to be inspired. Currently you are hopping in Australia! So if you live here and want to know more about these products or looking for someone to join with - I can help you.

For my project I decided to use the Sale-a-Bration Stamp set - Flowering Fields. Here is my Project -

 

I used the Flowering Fields stamp set that you can see here below - 



I adore Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe, and together - well that is just the perfect match! I really hope that we see these colours return in a colour renovation! If not I will have to cry at the end of the year. Boo hoooooo. Now can you work out where the sentiment is from? It is the Botanicals for you Sale-a-Bration Stamp set! But I washi taped the .....Because part and there you have it - a fantastic sentiment that you can use for lots of occasions. Here is the Botanicals for you Set here that you can receive for free here in Australia for every $90 you spend.



 The sentiment I have named a hanging sentiment - because I raised the layer and yet still extended the cardstock to go off the edge. It lines up with the card backing - but you can see what I mean here -


I love my Stampin' Up!® Daubers and I have used a very simple technique of embossing the Flowering Fields stamps, then sponging them with the Mint Macaron ink to make the POP off the card. It is a fun technique that is very easy to do. I have found that it works best with lighter colours so that you can see the ink so you subtle colours would be great for this. I might have to try it out on blushing bride next..... mmmmm ideas are flowing!!! Watch this space!

Thank you so much for joining my today don't forget you have LOTS MORE incredible talent to have a look at - make your way around the whole hop and if you get a chance please pin or comment that would be awesome as we LOVE hearing from our readers.
