Welcome to our March Sale-A-Braion Blog Hop. Each month, on the third Thursday of the month, a group of us get together to hop and share projects from Stampin' Up!'s current catalogs. It's always a lot of fun. Today's hop is all about the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st so if you have your eye on one of the products, now would be a good time to get that $50 order in to get your free item.
You should be coming to my blog from Heidi Weaver. After your visit with me, you'll head on over to Marie Green. And, as always, our Hop runs in a circle. Whether you start at the top and go forward or start at the bottom and go backward, you will always wind up where you started.
All three of the projects I've made feature just one of the Sale-A-Bration stamps sets. It's the Avant Garden Stamp set and I just love it!
The inspiration for my first card came from Jo Anne Hewins. You can see her card HERE. While I used the Elegant Eggplant as she did, I used Emerald Envy for my green and the Triple Banner Punch for the sentiment. What I liked most about the card is making my own patterned paper using one of the stamps from Avant Garden.
Stamp Set: Avant Garden; Ink: Elegant Eggplant: Stampin' Write Markers: Elegant Eggplant, Emerald Envy; Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White; Other: Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, Triple Banner Punch, Linen Thread
My second project is all blues and yellow. I hadn't used Dapper Denim and Marina Mist together before but they played well together.
Stamp Set: Avant Garden; Inks: Dapper Denim, Marina Mist, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi; Cardstock: Marina Mist, So Saffron, Whisper White, Whisper White Thick; Other: Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, Orange Wink of Stella Brush
My final project is a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) of a card done by Melissa Kerman. I couldn't find the a link to her blog so I can't direct you to her card. I made a few changes to my design since I love butterflies.
Stamp Sets: Avant Garden, Butterfly Basics, Papillon Potpourri, Timeless Textures; Inks: Always Artichoke, Blushing Bride, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry; Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Tip Top Taupe, Very Vanilla; Other: Bitty Butterfly Punch, Pearl Basic Jewels
