Welcome to the 3rd Thursdays Blog Hop! Our theme for this month's hop is Sale-A-Bration Coordination and/or the Sale-A-Bration second Release. This is the best time of the year for anyone who loves Stampin' Up! products. Any $50 purchase or $100 purchase (before tax & shipping) in my store will earn a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. This month Stampin' Up! released coordinating dies for 3 of the stamp sets in the Brochure and 2 stamp sets from the Annual Catalog. If you host an event you can earn the Little Ladybug stamp set for free with a qualifying amount during Sale-A-Bration from Stampin' Up! These cute little ladybugs can work with so many of your projects. Your friends will love using this set to make their own cards so you can have a little ladybug party of your own. One of the Coordination Dies Sets is the Ladybugs Dies.

My project for this hop uses the Little Ladybug stamp set and the coordinating Ladybugs Dies. It is a Fun Fold Card, I loved pairing the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper with the cute little Ladybugs.

To earn the Little Ladybug stamp set you would need to have $300 in sales from a party you hosted or $300 in personal sales. Here is a look at all of the images in the adorable Little Ladybug stamp set.

Here is a look at the inside of the card. You will find a link to the tutorial below.

The Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (SDSP) is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a $50 purchase. One side of this gorgeous paper has Gold Foil elements and the other side is Black and White. 

I hope you enjoyed my project and will be inspired by it. Now it is time to see what someone has to inspire you from our Sale-A-Bration Brochures or our Coordination Products.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop: A Valentine's Theme

Welcome to the February Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop! Our theme for this month is of course Valentine's Day.  Hi, My name Is Jan Musselman, I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in Evergreen Colorado. I have already done a few Valentine's Cards, so today I am sharing a another Dove Chocolate Candy Box and a 3" x 3" Note Card to go with the Candy Box.  

The Candy Box Poject uses the following products:

Heartfelt Bundle - 153775
Meant To Be Stamp Set - 148626
Stitched Be Mine Dies - 148527
Layering Squares Dies - 141708
Merry Christmas Dies - 147912
From My Heart SDSP - 151189

The 3" x 3" Card  uses the Heartfelt Bundle, the From My Heart SDSP & the Heart  (151191

When I sat down to design the candy box I first looked at the Bag to see how many Pieces were considered a single serving. Sometimes I agree with that, sometimes I don't. This time Idid agree. I love Dove Chocolates but I can only eat three of them. The suggested serving was four pieces. Instead of making another square box I wanted to do something different. So I laid them out in a line, added a little wiggle room and this is what I came up with. I think it's pretty cute.

You're Cute As A Bug Card

This adorable Honey Bee Card was created with a few of my new favorite things from the 2020 Mini catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.

Save 10% by purchasing the bundle!
This reminds me so much of the beautiful line drawings I love so much. The Honey Bee stamp set is a DistINKtive cling stamp set. The amazing detail that is available is these stamps are so much fun to ink up. I added some Wink of Stella to the large Bees wings (which unfortunately does not show up in my photos). And then there is this gorgeous Golden Honey SDSP ( A Sale-A-Bration item).

Get high-quality patterned paper featuring bees, flowers, honeycombs, stripes, and other fun designs in the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper. This printed paper has black and white imagery with gold foil accents on some designs. Each sheet is double sided for twice the creative options! 

(This item is currently not available, but you can get notified when it is back in stock). 

I am also in love with the Label Me Lovely Punch. Here it is used as my focal point. I have punched  2 of them, one in Whisper White Thick and another in Gold Foil. The Gold Foil Label has been cut in half and adhered to the back of the Whisper White one so that some of the Gold Foil shows above & below the Whisper White Label.

Create die-cut labels using the Label Me Lovely Punch. This punch makes it easy to create quick gift tags and labels or elements for cards and scrapbook pages. Punches are a quick and easy way to add paper cut outs and die-cut shapes that add interest and depth to your projects. And punches are a great way to cut out stamped images—many of our stamp sets have coordinating punches. 

The sentiment I used is from the Little Ladybug stamp set.
You can get the adorable Little Ladybug Host Stamp Set FREE when you host a qualifying party or place a personal order totaling $300 or more during our Sale-A-Bration promotion (January 3–March 31, 2020). These cute little ladybugs are eager to help you spread some love with fun handmade cards for birthdays, thank you, or thinking of you.
