Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop. This weekend I'm joining a very talented group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators to showcase the items that you can receive for FREE when you place a qualifying order of Stampin' Up! merchandise. If you began the hop from the beginning, you're arriving from Krystal's blog, you've seen some wonderful projects using the Stripes Textured Impressions embossing folder for the Big Shot. If you're traveling backwards through the hop, then you've arrived from Carmen's blog where she featured some awesome digital projects using the beautiful images found in the One Big Sale-A-Bration CD.
My projects feature the Language of Friendship stamp set. You can find this stamp set in the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog, but during Sale-A-Bration, you can choose this stamp set for FREE when you spend $50 in Stampin' Up! merchandise. It's a heck of a deal! I love this stamp set and have already featured projects made with this stamp set on my blog. In fact, my first project is a remake of a greeting card that I've already shared.
I began with a piece of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper to choose the colors for this card: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, and Soft Suede. The bird body and bird wing also use the Designer Series Paper and were punched out using the Bird Builder punch. The flower image was stamped three times using Pool Party, Island Indigo, and Calypso Coral. These flowers were punched with the Boho Blossoms punch. You'll notice there's a brad from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack at the center of one of the flowers. The bird and flowers sit on an embossed oval frame from the Designer Frames Textured Impressions embossing folders.
My second project is a set of 6" x 6" scrapbook pages.
Here you see the bird near the top right corner of the right page resting on a "nest" of 1/8" Lucky Limeade Organdy ribbon from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack. The bird image was stamped on another piece of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper, punched out with the Bird Builder punch and adhered to the border strip with Stampin' Dimensionals. The border strips and the letters die cute for the "r-i-e-n-d-s" in "Friends" are still more pieces of the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper. Can you tell that I just LOVE this paper???!!!??? The "F" for "Friends" comes from the Vintage Vogue stamp set and was stamped on a piece of Pool Party cardstock, cut out, and adhered to the border strip with Stampin' Dimensionals. You'll note that more of the Lucky Limeade 1/8" Organdy ribbon was tied around the "F". The brads used to anchor the Calypso Coral 3/8" Ruffled ribbon and the brad used to dot the "i" in "Friends" come from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack.
My final project is a card with some fancy folds.
The card base is Calypso Coral. Strips of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper were matted with Pool Party cardstock and placed on the card front among the cuts and folds. A piece of Pool Party cardstock was punched with the Lace Ribbon punch, run through the Paper Crimper to soften up the fibers in the cardstock, and then pleat folded along the bottom border of the card front. A sponge with Soft Suede ink was rubbed across the front and back of a piece of Pool Party 3/8" Ruffled ribbon before the ribbon was wrapped around the bottom of the card front and knotted. A piece of Very Vanilla cardstock was placed inside the Pool Party rectangular frame for the sentiment. This embossed frame also comes from the Designer Frames Textured Impressions embossing folders. The flower image was stamped three times using Pool Party, Island Indigo, and Calypso Coral ink then punched out with the Boho Blossoms punch. The largest and smallest flowers were attached together with Gold Brads and the medium sized flower has a Gold Brad at the center, too. The flowers were adhered to the embossed frame with Mini Glue Dots.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! I hope you've found some inspiration for using the Language of Friendship stamp set. Be sure to stop by next week for more details about how these projects were made; including a look at the insides of the cards, the envelopes and a card made using the scrapbook page design.
