Welcome! It is time for another Stampin’ Addicts Blog Hop! This blog hop celebrates the fabulous freebies you can earn with every $50 in your subtotal during Sale-a-Bration. Each blog on the hop will be featuring these items, many of which are only available until March 31st! If you are traveling forward in the blog hop, you just arrived from Holly’s Blog, where she showed you some beautiful projects made with Bella’s Bloom. If you are starting here, no worries. All of the posts link together to make a large circle.
I am excited to be showcasing the adorable D is for Dog stamp set. In case you didn’t know, there is a big new change this year! In addition to the six Sale-a-Bration products, Stampin’ Up! will be letting you pick from a limited list (on the last page of the SAB brochure) of stamp sets from the big Idea Book and Catalog. How awesome is that?
The first card I have to show you today is a doggie Valentine. Whether it is from the dog or to the dog is up to you, but either way it is super cute! Here’s a handy tip I discovered — the full heart punch layers just perfectly on top of the new Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit!
Stamps: D is for Dog, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Very Vanilla, Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper
Other: Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit, Full Heart Punch, Pinking Hearts Border Punch, Pretty In Pink 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I got the idea for this next project after seeing all of the bird houses that people have been making with the new Mini Milk Carton Die. If you can make a bird house, why not a DOG house? So I did!
Stamps: D is for Dog
Ink: So Saffron, Real Red, Basic Black, VersaMark
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Other: Mini Milk Carton Bigz L Die, Wide Oval Punch, White Embossing Powder, Paper Snips, Sticky Strip
My finally project is one that every dog owner dreads, but unfortunately it is a card that has to be made from time to time. I am glad that this sentiment is included in this set, even though I hope I never have to use it. This is inspired by a similar card made by Patti Chesky.
Stamps: D is for Dog
Ink: So Saffron, Taken with Teal, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Whisper White, Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack
Other: Chocolate Chip 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, Sponge Daubers
Here’s a look at the entire six piece stamp set. Can you believe that you can get this for free? Wow!
Your next stop on the blog hop is Jean, showing you projects created with one of my favorite single stamps, Elegant Thank You.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the projects made with the products that you can get free with a $50.00 purchase during Sale-A- Bration. Now you can see why it is every stampers’ favorite time of year!
