Tomorrow is a BIG DAY, it is the day that the 2019 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Brochure go Live!!!
This is the Occasions Catalogue, message me if you live in Canada and would like a copy from me!
So today I have a super cute card to share with you that uses a Sale-A-Bration stamp set and Sale-A-Bration ribbon!
First, for those of you that may be new to my Blog and Stampin’ Up! let me explain what Sale-A-Bration is.
From January 3 2019 until March 31 2019, every $60 (there are also 2 – $120 level rewards as well) you spend (before shipping and tax) from either the Annual Catalogue, Clearance Rack or Occasions Catalogue, you get to choose Free with $60 purchase item for the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, a pretty awesome deal!!
This is what the Sale-A- Bration Brochure looks like. It is packed with incredible products that you can get for FREE with qualifying orders!!
My number one Sale-A-Bration stamp set that I wanted was the So Hoppy Together (page 13) stamp set, I just love the adorable images!!
Here’s a fun fact about me; when I was a little girl, my sisters and I (I am the middle of 3 girls) used to collect frogs in buckets and bring them into our house, drove our poor mom crazy!!! I guess you could say that we were not girly girls at all!! To this day I love to hear frogs singing, I find it so soothing.
Anyway, so when I saw these cute frogs, I knew I needed them (not want, need, ha-ha!), I mean how could you not love this adorable stamp set!
Did you notice the stitching on the rectangle, isn’t it fabulous!!!! I did not do any fancy tricks to create the rectangle, it is from a new die set in the Occasions Catalogue called Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies, Squeell!!!! Yes I said rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (page 28 Occasions catalogue), these were my number 1 must have item in the Occasions Catalogue!! I Love my stitched shapes dies and they are honestly my #1 go to dies, so these rectangles were an absolute must purchase for me!
Here are the dimensions for my card;
Thick Whisper White cardstock base, cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″
Gorgeous Grape cardstock, cut to 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″, I random stamped the frog across this layer in Gorgeous Grape Classic Ink, stamping off on a piece of grid paper first to soften the look of the image
Thick Whisper White cardstock scrap, large enough to die cut out the rectangle. I stamped the frog image on this in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured him in using my Stampin’ Blends. This layer has some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack tucked behind it, this is also another awesome Sale-A-Bration offering, it can be found on page 7 of the SAB Brochure.
All of the items I used to create this card can be purchased as well as earned as of tomorrow January 3 2019 in my Online Store
