Sale-a-Bration 2013 Blog Hop

Posted by on January 18, 2013


Welcome to the Stampin’ Addict’s 2013 Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop! Sale-a-Bration is my favorite time of year, and this blog hop is the best way to kick it off! You may have arrived here from Stitchin’ n Stampin’ on Paper, where Kim is featuring Pretty Petites. Aren’t her projects fabulous? If you are just starting here, that’s fine too. All of the blogs link in a circle, so you can start wherever you like, and make your way around.

I am excited to be featuring the super cute Patterned Occasions stamp set. It has 5 adorable images, each with punny sentiment. I’ll be showing you four of them today. This first card I made for a Stampin’ Addicts swap, and I love how it came out! It uses the Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper as well.


Stamps: Patterned Occasions
Ink: Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango
Paper: Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper
Other: Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon, Ovals Collection Framelits, Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack

The words and images are on the same stamp, but it is super easy to use the Stampin’ Write markers to ink them up separately. For this next card I did not even stamp them at the same time.


Stamps: Patterned Occasions
Ink: Real Red, Pool Party, Primrose Petals
Paper: Pool Party, Primrose Petals, Real Red, Very Vanilla, First Edition Designer Series Paper, More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper
Other: Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, 1 1/4″ square punch, 1 3/8″ square punch

My third card is a 3″ x 3″ card that would be just perfect for a little tag on a birthday present. As you can see, I really went to town with my markers! How cute is this cupcake?


Stamps: Patterned Occasions
Ink: Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Pacific Point
Paper: Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper
Other: Scallop Square Duo Bigz Die, Pacific Point Stitched 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon

My final card is another shaped card, this time with the Window Frame Framelits. I love this elephant. He would make the cutest thank you for baby gifts! Or use him in brighter colors for cards for all ages.


Stamps: Patterned Occasions
Ink: Pool Party, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango
Paper: Pool Party, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper
Other: Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon, Window Frames Collection Framelits, Circles #2 Die

I hope you enjoyed this look at the Patterned Occasions stamp set. The only stamp that I did not show you is a super cute band-aid with a heart on it. Stop back later this week, and I will try to make something adorable with it. Your next stop is Lily’s Ink Pad, where Sara will be showing you some great digital projects with the Lemonade Stand CD.
