Global Stamping Friends - Sale-A-Brate Occasions

Happy Friday and Happy New Year to everyone!  It's the first Friday of the month and time again for the next Global Stampin' Friends Blog Hop!  
My favorite time of the year is here: Sale-A-Bration!   I love this annual promotion!  The items that Stampin' Up! chooses for it's free items to offer is always a great variety of products from stamp sets to paper to embellishments.  One of my favorite stamp sets from the new brochure is Party Panda!  These cute little pandas were my first go to item I added to my cart when I was able to pre-order (extra perk of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator)!  
I wanted to showcase these cuties and tie in a Valentine's Day theme since that holiday is right around the corner.  I wanted to steer away from using red as I just had a red overload making all of my Christmas cards so I went with Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride, and Berry Burst.  Pulling in some bling I added two of the Berry Burst adhesive backed sequins from the Tutti Fruitti line.  

Best part of this card is if you add all the supplies up to create it, you receive the Party Pandas stamp set FREE and if you place an order of $50 with me using this months Hostess Code, you can receive the Tutti Fruitti sequins free too!

ICS Blog Hop - Myths & Magic

January is here, the first Wednesday of the month is here, and it's time for another edition of the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop!  I arrived back home yesterday from spending time with my family in Iowa for Christmas and now it's time to swing in to January and Sale-A-Bration!  Sale-A-Bration is Stampin' Up!s biggest annual promotion where for every $50 you purchase before tax and shipping, you receive a free item! New this year is the addition of a second tier for $100 where you can choose bigger and better items for your free item!  
This month we are focusing on getting you to that magic $50 benchmark so you can reap the Sale-A-Bration benefits!  For my project this month, I wanted to highlight the new Myths & Magic stamp set with coordinating dies.  
When I received this stamp set at On Stage celebration in November I fell in love with it!  Unicorns and rainbows are very popular right now and I couldn't wait to add a little sparkle to this set!  
This set is perfect for kids but also a great set for adults who never want to grow up.  There are so many color combinations that would work for this set and the possibilities are endless, but for my project, I had to go the rainbow route!  This is a simple card with very little technique needed but packs a big and bright punch!

For my project, I used the Aqua Painter and picked up my color from squeezing my ink pads to get ink into the top of the case.  I made a rainbow on watercolor paper and stamped my unicorn on Shimmery White paper.  I used the Aqua Painter to pick up more colors to color the unicorn and then when dry, I colored over it with my Wink of Stella brush to give it even more sparkle!   

Isn't that ribbon extra sparkly and gives the project a pop of texture. It's a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog called the Shimmer Ribbon Pack!  The ribbon comes in a three pack of three different colors and three different ribbon sizes and all have a shimmery look!  I used the Calypso Coral ribbon which is 3/8" wide.

Sale-A-Bration Kick Off Blog Hop!

It's the most wonderful time of the year....Stampin' Up!'s annual Sale-A-Bration promotion is here!  Sale-A-Bration is my favorite time of the year.  Stampin' Up! loves to pamper everyone and this promotion is the ultimate pampering you can get! 
Aren't familiar with Sale-A-Bration?  For every $50 in purchased products (before tax and shipping) you can choose an item from a special catalog of products just for this promotion!  New this year, an added $100 tier where you can choose additional items as well!  

Kicking off Sale-A-Bration is a great hop of Demonstrators showcasing items you can receive as your free products!  For my project, I highlighted the Bubble Over bundle!  This set was highlighted during Stampin' Up!s On Stage event in November and I fell in love with it!  I love the retro look of the stamp set and the framelits dies that coordinate are great, but the best of all, there is a coordinating Designer Series Paper that is in the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  Check out the great video below highlighting the set and the paper!
For my project, I wanted the set to be the main focus and the Designer Series Paper to highlight and coordinate with each other.  
I love the simplicity of this project and how there aren't many supplies needed to reach the $50 mark to receive the paper for free!  I used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, and Calypso Coral as my main colors and to tie in with the patterned paper!  Check out all the projects in our hop by clicking on the list below or the next button to keep hopping!

Stampers By The Dozen - From The Heart

Friday is here and it's time for another Stamper's By The Dozen Hop! This month I am very excited about the projects as we are creating projects From the Heart!  I can't wait to hop through everyone's blogs to see all the different ideas as I'm sure everyone will come up with great projects!  

From the Heart can mean many things but to me, anything handmade is from the heart.  For my projects this month, I wanted to showcase items I made for my vendor shows I participated in this season.  Tucson is a city steeped in many artists and high quality vendor shows.  My first show over Thanksgiving weekend wiped out many of my items and I spend the next week working my fingers each night creating new projects to restock.  These were some of my biggest sellers and I'm excited to share them with you!  

I love this Hershey Kiss Christmas tree! This is such an easy project that can be pumped out quickly for mass production.  These trees where my biggest seller of the season and I sold buckets of them!  A definite make for next year!  The tree holds nine regular Hershey Kisses and one Hershey Nugget wrapped in Early Espresso cardstock at the bottom.  The best part of this is that the only part that is glued is the frame of the tree, everything else is held together by the force of the kisses! 

For my second project share, I made these Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Via Instant coffee packet holders and used the Merry Cafe stamp set.  This set is one of my top favorites as it coordinates with my favorite stamp and die set from the annual catalog.  In October I participated in a fall vendor show and used Pumpkin Spice Via Instant packets and used the same stamp set.  This show I sold all 16 of my packets and wished I had made more!  I also used the pizza box from the holiday catalog as a box for some tags!  I used the Painted Harvest stamp set to stamp a wreath!
