We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop-Kicking off Sale-A-Bration!

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit!

Are you ready to SALE-a-brate? You read that correctly! Stampin’ Up! has brought back my favorite time of the year for a second time!!! Qualifying purchases of $50 or $100 increments earns you FREE products.

Yep it’s that simple… order a new supplies for holiday cards and poof the Stampin’ Up! Santa brings you FREE products. Order back to school supplies and maybe a welcome back gift for a special teacher and bam, you move to the head of the economics class with great return on investment (yes that is the FREE product).

Keep reading to see how I made the most of my demonstrator only (love all the perks!) pre-order of the items found in the NEW Sale-a-bration catalog.

Raise your hand if you remember the 70’s. This “where are my sunglasses” Be Dazzling 6×6 speciality paper from the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) catalog is like looking into a disco ball.

My sample card is a more like a triple whammy of newness. 1. The new 21-2023 In Color Soft Succulent is my base and the circle stamp ink color. 2. That “circle” image is from the Textures & Frames Stamp set on page 12 of the SAB catalog that I earned for FREE and last but not least 3. The Be Dazzling paper as previously mentioned.

Watch for my post in August that will blow your mind with what I do with this paper!

Bonus whammy of newness 4. Did you see that little peek of ribbon at the top? That is the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon found on page 37 of the fall Mini Catalog. Wait… did I mention I colored it to match my Mint Macaroon layer? Yes, you can color this ribbon with your Stampin’ Blends.

Queue the heavenly music.

Let’s a take a quick moment to talk about the card itself.

It is a pocket card made by cutting a full sheet on the short side at 4 1/4, folding it in half and using Tear Tape along the long side to create the pocket and punch a piece out of the top to be able to grab the message card-I used the Tailored Tag.

Inside the pocket the card dimensions are 3 1/2 x 5 1/4. Add a coordinating layer for message writing and any sentiments. For this pocket card I stamped off my ink so the images would not interfer with the message. The colors in the card are Soft Succulent, Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss.

I loved the message card part of this card so much that I see many more versions of this card with this stamp and design combo … in all sorts of shapes (and colors too) thanks to the stamp design.

If you are really digging the pocket style card stay tunned to see the one I made with the Pretty as a Peach bundle…summer isn’t over yet (even if we are all drooling over all the new holiday products)
